Easiest to hit hybrid?

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, I'm getting myself a hybrid to replace my 3 iron which at the moment is just to search for balls in the long stuff. Since I'm a high handicapper, what I'm really looking for is just the easiest hybrid to hit out there. I was considering the Baffler because I've heard that's quite easy to hit, but I wanted some more opinions.
Thanks!

Bridgestone Precept ECU. Nice size head and very easy to hit.

Nike CPR. Has one of those ugly scoop back crowns (like the Hi-Bores) but is extremely easy to hit.

Re: Easiest to hit hybrid?

Adams are supposedly the number one hybrids out there but is that just for better players since no-one's suggested that?

Actually, the Bobby Jones hybrid is the best out there. I had a chance to buy one at a store in Las Vegas, but passed on the oppurtunity. I used the money to get my 7 wood and my SW. I have room for one more club in my bag [3 wood has a stiff shaft and cant swing it], so I'm looking for a hybrid too.

I carry two Ping Rapture hybrids (21 and 24 degrees). They are a little pricey, but they are very easy to hit and have real nice feel. These are the go to clubs in my bag and I would rather hit my second shot with these than my irons.

I've heard that the ADAMS Tight Lies hybrids are supposed to be the easiest hitting hybrids out there. But then again.....That's just what I've heard.

I think highly of my Adams OS2 3-hybrid. Since I learned to hit it, it's been my "When it absolutely, positively has to be straight" club. And they're $100 pretty much everywhere nowadays. I kind of wish they had a 2-hybrid in that series, I'd love to use it instead of my 5-wood.

Adams are not for better players only - I think their new ones are very easy to hit. Keep in mind that there are probably too many choices for hybrids out there. Having said that you need to try many of them to make sure whichever one you get works for you and your type of swing.

I'm going to try an Adams Golf Idea Pro Hybrid. I've read in other posts that they are easy, straight, long and have no offset. Not the most affordable choice but I've read nothing but good comments and reviews.

Re: Easiest to hit hybrid?

I use the Hibore hybrid 19*. For me is very easy to hit, always straight, i have great accuracy and control over it. Adam's are good as well.. I see the info-mercial on the Bobby jones, i would like to hit one.

Is the HiBore Hybrid offset at all? I'm looking for no offset. Just curious.

I do not believe they do. I've yet to hook the ball unintentionally.

Re: Easiest to hit hybrid?

Once I got used to my baffler I love it! You seem to like cobra stuff so give it a whack and see what you think... not to badly priced either!

Re: Easiest to hit hybrid?

Nike CPR3 Wood hybrids are incredibly easy to make a quality shot. I like the wood v. the iron/wood as the head is bigger and says "you can't miss" The shaft is short and the head is heavy making it easy to make solid contact and get good distance. They plow through tall grass. My favorite clubs to hit in my bag.

I think they are being discontinued because everyone has them on sale. If you can find one I think they're $80 new with graphite shafts.

Re: Easiest to hit hybrid?

+1 for the Cobra Baffler - mine is a 20 degree, and it's both easy to hit and reasonably priced. I get about 200 yards out of mine. I've heard great things about the Bobby Jones as well but have never tried it.
