Considering a new 3 wood and Hybird

2 posts in this topic

I currently have a Taylormade r7 ST 3 wood and a big bertha DDS Diablo 4 hybird I purchased used when I took up playing again about 8 months ago. Since then I have purchased a new set of irons Mizuno JPX 800 and a Calloway tour FT iZ driver I was fitted for both of those purchases.

After getting the new driver I started shooting scores in the high 70’s for the first time in my life,


I’m wondering if its time to change out my older 3 wood and hybird. I’m not a long ball hitter so I wind up hitting my 3 wood off the deck a lot and off the T on long par 3’s. I hit my 4 hybird more than any club in my bag, many times just to reach longer par 4’s. I hit both of them fairly well 70% of the time so I’m wondering if it’s worth trying out a new club. I hit my sons new Adams fast 10 3W and I hit it a little straighter than mine but not further I hit my 3W about 200 yards.

I guess my question is, are the new 2010/2011 clubs so much better than the two models I now have? I have not read much about the TM r7 ST it has a regular TM shaft not an aftermarket.
Just looking for some opinions on how much the technology has advanced since the clubs I already have. If it’s comparable to the new driver I have vs. the old Ping G5 I was using, it’s a no brainer. I’ve hit some demo clubs at golf shop off the matt but in my view it’s not a real comparison vs. the course.

Maybe its time for a new R11 3 wood and Mashie hybrid??? And maybe not.

Thanks for any advise.

I play the Cobra Baffler TWS 3h 20*.  It is a great club, very solid, long, and forgiving. I upgraded the shaft to a UST V2 72 gram. It goes about 205-210. I can't vouch for new hybrids but this one is a winner and you can probably get it $100 or less.  I have heard great things about the Titleist 910 hybrid and the Callaway Razor has great reviews....

    • It seems from the ratings that I have seen that, like me, there were a lot of people watching the final round of golf for both the women and the men at the Rio Olympics. The ratings for the men were in fact, second only to the Masters. That is truly fantastic to hear. Going into this Olympics, at least on the men's side, you might think that we were set for a complete disaster. All but a few of the high profile names dropped out for multiple reasons. Pika, safety, or the real reason - just plain tired. I suspect all that didn't play sort of wished they did. They will come out and say that they didn't miss it, because they don't want to look stupid, but the reality is they probably have a pit in their stomach for missing the first Olympics in over 100 years. I am talking about Jason Day, Jordan Spieth, and yes I suspect even Rory McIlroy.

    • Let us know how it goes when you get them.
    • According to GAME GOLF, I have 68% GIR and 13% birdies. 13%/68% (I almost never chip in for birdie) = 19.12%.
    • Damn dude, 4.1?  Wow.  I think you and I were about even when I joined here a couple years ago, 6-something.  You're going in the right direction, I'm headed the other way.  I'm actually at 9.4 at the minute but haven't updated here cuz it's painful and I consider it temporary .  Hand pain gone, actually went to the range this week, 1st time in a year.  So, I plan to throw down a 78 or so and be back under 9 by end of day, fingers crossed.  Keep rolling. No idea what my birdie conversion rate is, I'd guess pretty respectable cuz my putting never left me.
