We had a demo day in the area not too long ago and I hit the Ping G-10, Titleist 909H, and TM Burner Rescue. I couldn't tell one bit of difference between any of them. Maybe they all just play the same for me. Very easy clubs to hit. My local shop has an older model I can pick up around cost so I will probably get that one to save some money. I am pretty sure it won't be much different than the others.

A few weeks ago, I stopped in at dick's on a whim and hit all the hybrids they had in stock in the 18/19* range. I wasn't suprised that the one I liked the best was the Adams, but I was surprised to see how much I liked the Acuity hybrid-this being my first go with a hybrid (and not sure how much I needed the club in my bag), I decided that a $25 experiment made a lot more sense than a $60 experiment. I've played around 72 holes with it since, and I couldn't be happier. It tends to balloon a little bit if I have a fluffy lie and catch it high on the face, and sometimes the Uni-Flex feels a bit soft, but its straight, and the 18* is a perfect fit between my 3 iron and 3 wood.

Check out the new mizuno mx 700 hybrid. I was orginally planning on not having a three iron is using the mx 700 as its replacement. When I first tried the mx 700 I flew over 30 yards longer than my three iron. It is ideal if you want some slight workability. I would compare to the tour edge exotics hybrids but its only $200 instead of $350

I use the TM Burner Rescue - the original one. I use it because it's extremely easy to hit, hits it straight, and hits it long.

I have yet to hear one negative thing about this hybrid and am looking forward to testing it out and possibly buying it.

Ive heard good things about the MX-700 hybrids.

I have a Tour-Edge # 3 Hybrid that I use from time to time. I really have to watch out for a big draw bordering on a hook when I play it. I believe that the face is biased for a draw. I didn't know that when I bought it on the internet but the price was outstanding. A friend said that most hybrids are draw biased except the Adams. Not sure if this is true or not.

It's a really nice club; I don't think you will be disappointed.

The newer Callaway FT is perfect for me. It's nice and small, the right shape to hit out of any lie, and the shaft it is matched with lowers the trajectory significantly. Plus it is really good looking. Two of the other ones I tried that I really liked were the Titleist 585h and the Adams Idea Pro.

I got a Tour Edge GeoMax 19* hybrid because it looked a little closer to a 5 wood that I was using it to replace. It sets up more like a wood than an iron replacement club.

I play the titleist 909h as a 3 iron replacement. Despite being a titleist club, it's very easy to hit. I had a tendency to snap hook a lot of the other manufacturers I tried.

Ditto and I'm not gonna lie I kinda chose it for the Titleist name, too.

I can't stand any leftward bias in my clubs.

i bought the Nickent 5DX because its the longest, straightest most forgiving hybrid i ever hit. i used to have the Callaway FT hybrids (Neutral) but they were hook machines. The Nickents will stay in my bag for a loooong time

The callaway heavenwood 4H. Very long, very workable, even for a high handicapper like me. Not to mention the heavenwood will be very light on the bank.

    • Let us know how it goes. 
    • Cost and time.   THanks..have to give it a try..just trying to get back into my set without investing $$ for the time being..TY!
    • From yesterday's round. Approach to the green was a little long, and my ball was sitting on the back fringe. Large pile of coyote shit between the hole and my ball. The putt was right to left breaking so luckily my line was maybe 2-3 feet to the right of the turd, and there wasn't much chance of rolling into it, unless I hit a terribly offline putt, or got unlucky with a deflection off a bump in the fringe (which is quite beat up where my ball came to rest).
    • You're not supposed to change your vote. 😛 The problem with that is that the "shotgun pattern" doesn't account for the putts that go in. Yes, the distributions of both get larger. Bobby should have studied probability more. A putt going toward the hole, if mis-directed, can go left or right. Both result in a miss. A putt that is missing the hole, if mis-directed, can go left or right. One may result in a make, the other is still a miss. Bumps (if large enough to deflect the ball a little over an inch or so, and if close enough to the hole for a miss to become a make) have a negative outcome 100% of the time when the ball is going in, and a positive outcome 50% of the time when the ball is going to miss. Or to put it in absolute terms, every bump on a ball that would be going in the middle has a negative outcome - it steers the ball farther away from the center of the hole, and every bump that steers the ball on a putt that's missing has a 50% chance of "helping" by steering it in the right direction. Nope. You can join Bobby Jones in the statistics/probability class. 🙂 These bumps aren't knocking the ball feet farther away. They're not tees randomly stuck in the ground. They're just bumps on a putting green. That's the kind of road you can lead yourself down when you don't just look at it logically. 😄 To the majority of you getting this one wrong… Let's make an extreme example. You have one putter that makes 80% of his putts, and another that makes 50%. The gap is 30% or 0.3 strokes (1.2 versus 1.5). You introduce enough randomness that 25% of the putts that were going to go in miss and 5% of the putts that were going to miss go in. The gap is now: 0.8 * .75 + 0.2 * .05 = 61%. 0.5 * .75 + 0.5 * .05 = 40% What was a 30% gap is now a 19% gap. The gap narrows. The good putter is punished, even though he's punished at the same "rates" as the bad putter, at a higher "value" because he hits more putts that would have gone in, while the bad putter hits more putts that could potentially only be directed in. To put it another way, there's a larger possible "negative" adjustment or change for the good putter and a larger possible "positive" adjustment or change for the bad putter. This is true in pretty much* all cases: the more luck plays a role, the less skill plays a role. * I'm a "never say never or always" kinda guy. I can't think of a time when an increase in randomness or luck also increases or at least doesn't reduce skill, but again… see the first sentence here in this asterisk.
    • Why? On 40 foot putts, they both don’t have much of a chance.  It’s the putts inside 15 feet that have the highest Separation Value.  So if a great putter makes 5 of 10 putts at 8 feet (tour average) on tour greens and he missed 1 or 2 more on crappy greens, his percentage changes more. The bad putter is missing more of those anyway, even on good greens.
