Just acquired Calloway Diablo Edge #4 H and having trouble hitting it consistently. I have no problems with my irons or fairway woods including the very low profile Olimar Tri-metal 13 deg or 21 deg. Only thing I can think of is the shaft is a lot more flexible than the others (my irons are APEX 3). This hybrid came with an "A" flex (which I did not notice when I got it on Ebay. I have not given up on it yet as I have not had chance to use it that much. I don't know whether to sell and get another, or simply get a new shaft put on. I am thinking it more cost effective just to list on ebay and with proceeds get a replacement. (If the flex is the problem and not something "I" am doing wrong). My set up is much like my 3 iron, but perhaps a couple inches further back and I do try to hit down like an iron.
Having trouble hitting hybrid
Golf Gear mentioned in this thread:
just not good solid hits. I probably top it more than anything. Could also be hitting on upswing too much (ball placement?) I will keep working at it. I did try and slow down the swing which seems to help a great deal, so I am thinking it is the flex that is bothering me. Its kinda weird given that I can hit my one iron pretty pure most of the time. The hybrid should be a cinch you would think. Hell, I will probably wake up tomorrow, give it a shot, and wonder what all the fuss was about.
I had the same with a Titleist 910H 17*, or my Nike Machspeed driver that showed up with L flex. I just slowed down by say 40%, sweeped it easy and amazingly the ball still flew as far as a full killer swing. Unfortanatelly for me when I have my hybrids in hand and see the graphite shaft I think "Driver Kill Swing" when it should be "easy sweeper swing...with a side of power" I over drive my swing alot on graphite shafts...instead of just letting the club do the work.
You make a very valid point. I definitely noticed a difference off practice mat when I slowed. Like a lot of people, I tend to answer my own questions. I guess we are mostly seeking validation.
p.s. where in Ohio? I was born in Dennison (Tuscarawas County),small town about 100 miles East of Columbus.
