Look on line for the Nickent 3dx. Great club and they can be found for next to nothing these days.

Love my Cleveland Launcher hybrids, 2 and 4.  So easy to swing and with superb results.

I'll second that. Great sticks, and you can buy them new for 29 bucks on ebay and other sites.

Big fan of the Mizuno MP Fli-Hi.  Looks like a iron but with a little more meat on it.  They can be had on Ebay for $40-$80.

+1 on the Adams V3.  I have the 3, 4, and 5, and depending on the course and weather, I'll usually carry two of them.  I've had the Ping G10, Mizuno Clik Fli-Hi's or something like that, and Adams A7.  I really like the small head and easy swing of the V3's.  Can I work the ball with them?  I can work it straight almost everytime, which at my handicap (and yours I suspect) is what we are looking for.

I've tried a ton, and finally found one I like, Adams A12 Pro.

Second what Te3point5 said...it's completely subjective. That being said, I'd recommend the Adams A12 line (standard or pro), the SS Super Hybrid, and the Cleveland Mashie. All can be found in the $50-100 range.

Personally I'm looking at the cleveland mashie and the cobra baffler h rail. I'm intrigued by the cobra because I've read it is extremely forgiving but I'm still researching. I'm a terrible golfer but I didn't have a great experience with the original nickent 3dx genex. I could get some nice distance but it wasn't as forgiving as I need which is a lot. I believe that the original 3dx was relatively workable for what it was but can't rightly remember.

The Mashie is a great club, plus you get the premium Miyazaki shaft standard. They are dirt cheap right now also.

Agreed with that about the Adams a12 pro I tried it against the rbz 2 Nike covert cobra amp cell and a few others but nothing compared to the $80 dollar last years model of the Adams hybrid. Well worth the money and a must buy if in the market for a new hybrid.

My mashie is pretty solid out of the junk. Beware if you get one and regrip it, the shaft is oversized.

As stated before, Adams Idea Tech V3 is the best imo. Just got mine recently and it's a tremendous club the few chances I've had to hit it. Can be found for very cheap too, I got mine brand new for $60 from rockbottom.

if cheap is your main focus, then used is the way to go, buy your self a bag full of $10 sticks and hope for the best

I picked up a Nike VR 3H last year brand new for right around $50. Looks nice and more importantly feels and sounds solid on impact. It has 21º loft and the voodoo shaft.

    • I too, have difficulty understanding what is being asked.  Down - obviously Towards the ball - obviously A thought I often use is "point your lead shoulder at the ball" on the backswing. The caveat being, don't get overly steep with your shoulder plane.  
    • Just curious.   I've been watching some of the videos by Mark Crossfield and other youtube pro's and there is an argument to how much shaft stiffness truly matters.  Obviously too whippy is gonna lead to inconsistent strikes and dispersion.  I'm a S stiff guy, like I'm sure a lot of us amateurs are, but what makes these pro's need and prefer X?  Is it all the dispersion?  Because it can't be swing speed.  Bernhard Langer, Tom Gillis and all these guys on the champions tours still swing X even with decreasing swing speeds compared to the younger pro's.  So why is it?   And also are there any pro's that choose to swing a S or R flex and why? 
    • I get what you're saying @Vinsk ... but there might be a little more to it that we don't know.  Like @iacas said, Ernie thought he incurred a penalty so he assessed one. If I had to guess, there's probably slightly more to it than "it came out too good" because I agree with you on that one ... lies in the rough frequently come out differently than even the pros expect.  But perhaps he was having extra trouble getting it back where it needed to go, and the good result was just the confirmation.
    • Hey everyone,   So I've been really investing some time into this game the past couple years and think (hope, its golf ) that I'm making a breakthrough.  I started playing in high school with buddies where my main purpose was to hit the ball as hard as I could.  I'm a long lanky guy and was routinely out hitting my buddies even though they had much more experience.  Where they were really envious of me is with my driver where I could pound it 265+ even back then.  My irons were hit or miss, literally, where I would get a high flying 165 yd 8 iron and stick the green or duff one 10 feet.  So I've been working on the control game ever since I started taking this game more seriously to no avail.  I was still duffing and on the course I would find my self trying to crush it instead of just make solid contact.     My long sought effort of developing a controlled swing finally started to click at the range the other day.  One thing I had to continually fight myself on was coming out of my front foot.  I guess to hit it far I would do the jump out of my shoes like Justin Thomas, except without near the control.  I noticed I also tried to help the ball up a lot doing this, so when contact was good I would hit that high flying, but low spinning iron shot.  I was finally able to just roll onto the outside of my left foot without having these anxious spasms right before I hit the ball.  Honestly I think anxiety has a lot to do with golf.  Many of us amateurs don't know how the shot is going to end up.  Hitting a small ball with a big stick leads to a myriad of results and can literally be quite shocking when striking the ball.  I think I'm finally getting over that and losing my little nervous hop right before impact.  I was able to swing and roll through with a solid grip.  That was another thing I would do is release or tense weird areas of my hand when striking.     Its crazy how these little subtleties made such a difference.  While everyone around me was hitting tops and thin shots, I was able to stay cool and composed and struck the ball great!  Decreasing my nervous hop is decreasing my mishits by a large margin.  I'm also way more relaxed in my stance and grip.  I know its golf and this was just a one time thing, but I truly felt it and hoping I can make this change stick.  Hopefully on my way to lower scores 
    • On which tour did you plan on watching him play? I'm pretty sure he's not even a regular player on the Web.com Tour. This is probably a one and done kind of thing. In all honesty he hasn't been that fun to watch. He's not really cranking the drives because he needs to keep them in play and he's clearly not good enough to compete with PGA Tour players. If he wasn't who he was, he wouldn't even be getting air time.
