Cleveland Mashie plus

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I am new to the sport and just beginning to learn.  I currently have a few inherited clubs and have been reading up on hybrids since they did not exist last time I swung a club 25+ years ago.  I'm sure my better option is to wait a while and work into it, but I would like to pick up a few hybrids to throw in the bag to get started with.

 

I have found some good deals on the Cleveland Mashie (and Mashie plus) for $30 - 50 each and wandered what everyone thought about them as a beginner hybrid.  I know they aren't a Titleist but are they appropriate for a first time ball striker?

 

How do they work from the rough and/or tee?

 

Are these played and struck just like irons as far as striking down and not up on the ball?

 

Thanks for any insight.

I can't vouch for the Mashies, but I have a Cleveland Halo hybrid and it's one of my favorite clubs, so don't rule out Cleveland because it "isn't Titliest".

 

They were great from the rough, fairway, or tee. And people strike them differently. But with me, it's more of an iron type swing, but without a divot.

My other consideration is a used Ping G15 hybrid.  They run a little more but I do currently use Ping irons.  I don't know if the G15s would be a better option since they may more closely match my current Ping irons in swing.  I know they have an offset but so do the Eye2s.

 

Looks aside, how are the G15 hybrids?
