What hybrid 3 iron would you recommend?

10 posts in this topic

I tried the Adams a12 (standard size, not the OS) and I don't like it at all. I've heard tons of people love the Adams hybrids, but this one is clearly not it for me.  Anyone who has the OS think it's significantly different?

What would you recommend? Looking specifically for a 19*-21*/3 hybrid.

Just got the rbz 3 hybrid hit it really consistanly and I really like it. Hit it about the same length as my driver (shows how bad I need to work on my driver swing) back on point I would recommend it to anyone to atleast try it out I personly love mine and couldn't be happier

I really like my TaylorMade R11 hybrids.  The 16 ° 2 hybrid has replaced my 4 wood, and I bag the 21 ° 4 hybrid too.  They are adjustable +/-1 ° for both loft and face angle.  The 3 hybrid is an 18 °, also adjustable +/-1 ° for both loft and face angle.

Look hard at the Nickent 3dx. Outstanding quality and available very reasonably. You can find them well under $100.

As a 20 capper, I'd suggest the RBZ, and I'd probably suggest the RBZ 4 Hybrid at 22 degrees. I get 4i distance out of my RBZ 5H, so I'd think the 4H will get you 3i distance and easier height than the 19 degree. Although, if you are a high speed guy, you could handle the 19 deg.

Titleist, there a bit pricey but adjustibility is awesome, and they are pretty solid. Ping i20's are suppose to be really go Hybrids.

+1 on Titleist.  I have had the Adams and now the Titleist 910H and prefer the 910H.  The 21 deg is equivalent to a 3 iron.  One thing, if you have decent swing speed, go for the stiff rather than regular.  Regular Diamana Kai'li is pretty soft and if more for a swing speed (driver) in the 80s.

You can find these on E-bay pretty cheap, $120 - 150 depending on condition.  It is a good way to try it out and re-sell if you don't like it.

I should add to my original post that I also own a Titleist 910 Hybrid. They do have quality stock shafts - pick the one that fits you. If adjustability is needed,it is an excellent club. Having said that, I use the RBZ more than the Titleist. But I also have a custom shaft on the RBZ and its shaft length is shorter than standard, making it an easier club to play for me than the stock version.

I prefer the RBZ club head to the Titleist, and after I adjusted the lie on the Titleist, I haven't changed it. But the Titleist 910 is a club to seriously consider. The choice of clubs is very subjective. Get what you like. As to feel, the Titleist has more of a metallic zing, which makes it lively. The RBZ feel/sound is more muted, but very solid.

I bought the RBZ Tour 3H 18.5*.  It is 2 deg. open but my miss is left.  I needed something for some holes to lay up off the tee, very easy to hit and work the ball left and right.

    • Didn't know if I could mention it by name, but we know who. Many people share this experience.They promise a check instead of credit to use. Send in my clubs 2 months ago. They were accepted and approved 6 weeks ago. I emailed about the check 2 weeks ago. "Oh, it's on the way tomorrow".  I will call tomorrow.  However, they either have a cash flow problem, or they wait to sell your clubs before paying you out.  Said to see because the umbrella companies are awesome. Just be honest and tell me it may take two months
    • Here in USA, the KBS Tour S-flex shafts go for about $27 each new. If you get AP2 714 model, a 4-PW (?) reshaft would require $189 + tax to get shafts. Add $15 per club for shaft swap, and $10 per for new grips, and it's about $365 + tax. The KBS Tour stiff would be a few grams lighter and slightly stiffer than the S300 which often come as stock for the AP2. OTH is on target, consider this too.
    • I had a big long post going and lost it. The game of golf has only one set of rules per continent. The equipment used is well defined as far as legal, or illegal. The other sports you mentioned are dealing more with different age groups, physical sizes, and skill levels. Sure, golf has players of all ages, sizes, and skill levels too. Golf also has one set of rules, and one playing field with differences in length. Difference is baseball has tee ball. Football has different leagues based on age groups, and it's the same  for basketball. These sports cater to the needs of their players based on their age groups, and skill levels. This also includes the playing fields, and equipment they use. So in that respect I have no problem with what other sports are doing. 
    • 2/23: Feeling encouraged. I think I've got the (worse than usual) weight-shift/head movement mystery solved, or at least "identified" with a much better understanding of it (and a confirmation that it's always been there ). Getting better at the process I think...(1) noticing a problem but not knowing the why, (2) Slowing down and checking keys 1-3, and (3) "going back to my first lesson" so to speak by reviewing old video and my swing posts, and slowly "backing up" from the problem to try and identify the (chain of) cause(s). Today's practice: 10 minutes of good ol' wall drill, with original focus of getting my right hip away from the wall but with added attention paid to my upper body and (actually getting some) secondary axis tilt. Several slow and medium-speed reps of this pausing for feel and thinking about and practicing how I'd transition into the downswing. Then 6-8 minutes outside... Just two "reps" of 3-4 minutes slow-motion back- and downswings (hip, axis tilt, weight shift (and resulting proper better club path ) and then an easy-swing full shot with my 56o. So I only hit two shots and both were perfect, high draws.
    • Cobra Bio Cell + set at 15 degrees I am very confident with this club.  My 4 iron goes about 190 and my 3h goes 200-210.  Anything more than that (in the 220-230 range) is this club.  I have hit some very accurate shots with it and feel very comfortable with it.  In the first round this season, I have plopped one from 225 out within 15 feet from the pin.  I may change my driver this year but I get the feeling this club along with my hybrid (also a Bio Cell +) will be around for a long time
