Looking for a high loft Hybrid

9 posts in this topic

I was wondering if any of you know of some high loft hybrid/utility clubs? The highest I have found so far is a 30 degree hybrid (it's a Precept ECU 30*). I bought this club last week and I love it. It has replaced my 4 and 5 irons. I was just wondering if anyone here knows of a hybrid with a higher loft than 30? To replace either a 6 or 7 iron.

Thanks a lot!

I think Adams Golf and Nickent both sell full sets of hybrid-irons. I've seen an Adams set with a pitching wedge that looks like a hybrid.

Callaway goes up to a 7 Hybrid and Tour Edge has their Iron-Woods all the way to a lob wedge.

Thanks for the replies those Tour Edge Iron-Woods look interesting. Anyone have any experience with them?

Also does anyone have any other suggestions?

I play the tour edge 4hybrid. I definitely hit it farther than my old 4 iron, especially out of the rough. I do have to be careful at address it is kind of easy to set the club so that it is delofted or closed.

.... I switched to Tour Edge about a year ago .... and I've been extemely happy with them ....

I started with the 4 hybrid with a test romp from a little store called "Second Swing", and I had a chance to play 3 courses with it and loved it .. then bought a new 21*, then the 24*, etc, etc, etc --- as you can see from below ...

High loft..? .. the 41* 9 and the 51* Attack Wedge are both a killer .... you can drop an olive in a Martini glass from 125 yards out ... "especially" good if you play courses with hills and big slopes .. deep rough.? No problemo ..



whats in the bag.??

Driver : Tour Edge Jmax 460 Carbon with the Fuji Vista Pro 50 shaft.
Woods : only one left after switching to hybrids - Adams ST #7 22*.
Hybrids : Tour Edge 21*, 24*, 30*, 41* and the 50* Attack Wedge with the Fuji graphite R shafts.
Wedges : Warrior 56*, 60*, 64* with the Harrison Shafts.
Putter : Ping Anser 2F.
balls : Dunlop Super Loco, Maxfli Noodles - or any "good" ball when it goes on sale ...



Home course: Grey Hawk.
travel course: Tobacco Road (Pinehurst).

at the risk of sounding like the infomercial, I LOVE my perfect club. From 150 - 180, it is my go to club, period. Hard to hit it badly, feels great on 99% of my hits. 21 degrees and I think a 41" shaft? Got it for $70 w/ graphite at Dick's - it hasn't left my bag in over a year. Best money ever spent on a club for me. Even if I can't hit anything else straight, I know I can always go to it in the clutch and nail a shot. :) They do offer the 24 degree Perfect Accuracy for more loft. You can also putt it like a 7 iron out of the rough and it'll plunk it dead straight with (sorry) perfect roll and release to the hole. Saved my bacon and made me some $$ on the backside of a Nassau!

    • I think an active lead knee (or both knees) certainly helps with sequencing. In order for the knee to move forward and around (and straighten) it helps for it to gain some flex and rotate internally on the backswing. Creates some "flow". I basically described what I mean by active knee movement in my previous post in this thread. Like I said, doing the knee stuff in of itself might not be the answer, have to consider how the torso is working to facilitate the motion/pieces. While I love Jack's swing and think there is a lot we can learn from it, he was a special players and he would have been just as good with a swing where he kept the lead heel planted.
    • Quality over quantity! I understand the concept, but 2 grand for 3 wedges? There's no way they out perform vokey or any of your other major wedges enough to warrant those kind of prices! That's just my opinion. You're 100% correct there are people with money to blow who will buy them just to say they did. IMO it's all about the player. Spieth for example could take any wedge and most likely perform better than I ever will be able to. Which I'm sure you will agree to some extent. Just blows my mind at the cost! 
    • I'm still putting my money on you being the bigger head case.  
    • The dude has won 2 majors with glaringly less talent than the other top players....I don't think that happens to a head case. People tend to think otherwise at times because he wears his emotions on his sleeve so vividly, but Spieth's mental game is still more of an asset than anything else for him IMO. With his relatively limited talent, you don't accomplish things that only Jack, Tiger, and Seve have done if you're truly a head case. Reality vs. perception difference here.
    • The site of the 2017 U.S. Open is near my old stomping grounds...I was born about 30 min. away from where Erin Hills was eventually built.  I moved from that area long before the course was even planned, so I've never been there or played it or anything, but I learned some interesting things this evening. I have a good friend up there who works for a limo/shuttle company, and he has been driving people from Madison, Milwaukee and O'Hare to Erin Hills for several days, and he made several comments on how remote the golf course is.  It might not be exactly in the middle of nowhere, but apparently a short drive would get you there. There is only one way in, and one way out.  And these are country roads, not four-lane highways. They announced this site would host the U.S. Open in 2010...seven years ago, and they couldn't get a better road system in place?  I thought that was one of the things that they took into consideration when they scout potential sites?  It sounds like this course was earmarked to host USGA events before it was even built, so if they set out to design a course that would one day host a major, why wouldn't the road infrastructure be included? Anyway, the course itself is a monster...or at least can be, when the stretch it out.  From the blacks it plays 7,800 yds, but it looks like it will play about 7,700 during the tournament.  All four par 5s are over 600 yds, two par 4s are over 500 yds, and two others are over 480.  This is the first time in many years the course will play to a par of 72, which actually gives the guys a chance to make up some ground.
