hybrid

post #1 of 12

So I am new here. I am also not the best golfer either but I am so addicted to the game. I just love it. My question is do they make a hybrid iron with steel shaft?

Welcome to the forum.  The answer is yes.  Check out the Manufacturers websites and look at the specs for the hybrid.  You will see different shaft options.

Thanks. I went to golf & ski a couple of days ago and all they had were graphite.

Why would someone new to golf want a hybrid with a steel shaft?

 

You will  probably be sacrificing considerable club head swing speed compared to graphite. Which may most likely translate into lost distance.

To stogiesnbogies: my swing speed is between 90 to 92 and that a graphite shaft is a lot harder to stay consistent with. I really like the weight. I have rented the Nike slingshots and love them but they don't make them any more. So I am trying to find a set of irons similar.

at least that is what golf and ski told me about graphite shaft clubs.

The nike slingshot hybrids can still be had new on ebay for about $35-$45.

Hey Mrmudd....

 

Whatever works for you.....but my swing speed is between 85 and 90 and I love regular flex graphite shafts.....to each his own.

Still playing 2,3,4-hybrids - Cleveland HALOs. Love them. Don't know what I'd do without them - all with steel shafts. 92 mph swing speed.

yeah sure hybrids can be made with steel shafts.

However a hybrid is originally made to get the ball airborne more easy.

Because a graphite shaft is lighter it easier to do so. That is why you don't see

them so often with steel shaft.

The Callaway x-hybrids were available in steel. I bag the 2h, 3h and 4h. Definitely sacrifices distance, but they do act perfectly as iron replacements... Going iron distances...

I wanted steel shafts when I started as well. I remember having V-Steel 3 and 5 woods with steel shafts because I liked the weight. I was use to swinging a baseball bat and if the club was too light I felt no control.

 

That was 12 years ago. Now I only have steel in my irons, 2 hybrids with graphite, 2 fairway metals with graphite and of course a Driver with graphite.

 

You can always re-shaft a club with what ever you want. I don't think graphite is harder to control though as long as you have the right flex. That's what matters IMO.
