Views on Nickent 3dx DC hybrids? Need input ASAP

14 posts in this topic

I am in need of some hybrids and I can get a heck of a deal on the Nickent 3DX DC hybrids.  I know they are older models but for the price I am interested.

It is the following clubs:

Nickent 3DX DC Hybrid Pack, includes 4 total clubs #2(17*), #3(20*), #4(23*0 and #5(26*). Clubs are fitted with Grafalloy Hybrid Stiff flex shafts and Tour Velvet style grips.

  1. Are these hybrids a good brand and model?  I am about a 15 handicap but I swing my woods pretty well.  Getting better at my irons.  Gonna replace my 3 and 4 irons with hybrids and also use the 17* and 20* to replace some woods.
  2. Have the newer models of hybrids from varying manufactures changed so much over the last few years that it has made a huge difference in the clubs?
  3. Have you or anyone you know said anything about the nickent hybrid clubs?

I appreciate your input!

Josh

I've played these for several years.....both the 20* and the 24*. I've only recently transitioned to a titleist 910 for the 3. I firmly believe that the Nickent 3dx is one of the best hybrids available at nearly any price. At the price you can currently get them, they're an absolute steal!

Have been using Nickent 4dx 20 and 23, loved them. Happened to acquire a 3dx 17. With a narrower face than the 4dx models I did not think I would like it but it has now replaced my 3 wood off the tee and fairway. My favorite club. It is so sweet to hit

Hope this helps,

I purchased the set and I am excited to get them.  Have to wait until I can hit up a virtual range before I can give any feedback since I live in the great white north!

They have great on the simulator, haven't been able to hit them on the range yet because of the weather in the midwest.  I have been very happy on the simulator so far though.

I have an RC and DC Ironwood. They are FANTASTIC hybrids. I had to re shaft one of them as the stock shafts was way to whippy for me but the other one came with an awesome Proforce V2 shaft.

Depends on which Grafalloy shaft and whether that shaft has the right flex, kick point, torque resistance, and weight for your individual swing...Same is true of any shaft brand.

I have a couple of 4DX hybrids and think that they're terrific. I have friends with the 3 series and they're big fans too.  I went to a website to look for a third 4DX and found the loft and flex that I was looking for with a "Grafalloy shaft".  I asked which one and for the specs and was told "all it says is Grafalloy".  No sale, Dallas Golf.  Be sure that the shaft meets your requirements before you buy.

Yeah the grafalloy shafts in them I haven't been able to find any info on them. The ones with the nv shafts are supposed to be great.

Mine both had the 75g stiff NV shaft, and it was a great shaft for me with a pretty moderate swing speed.

I am not sure how well they play yet simply because I have not been able to play them much yet.  I plan on upgrading the shafts eventually and getting fitted for them.

I use to have those hybrids. They were amazing for the price. I first learned to hit a hybrid on those clubs. Definitely recommend.

    • Thank you! Got out for a few holes so it was a good day in spite of work!
    • 2/25: Played two rounds today with dad at a different course than usual. Shot 96 and 93. A few nice strings of pars and made several amazing putts (). Mostly bogeys other than that but managed a couple of absolute blow-up holes in each round that helped to guarantee 90+ scores from an otherwise very nice day of golf. I could complain about "sand-traps" sans-a-single-spec-of-sand with 10-foot wide puddles in them, or mushy fairways, or waiting 5-minutes for the 4-some in front of you on every shot, but there wasn't a notes field on the scorecard.  Practice is paying off, though. Hit my drives farther than ever, draws when I wanted them, and the fade didn't let me down when I needed it. 3/4 "flighted" shots are the new go-to approach of choice all the way out to 160+ with my 3-iron, and (n)GIRs have jumped up considerably. I've rambled on about my short-game improvements before, but it continues. Holed a pitch shot from about 10 yards and stopped 2 others 6 inches from the pin. Gotta play some more rounds from the front so I get used to stringing pars together. Realized today that I don't just get nervous about it, I also get cocky. Weird combination. 
    • I really like the travel of the sweetspot on the backswing. Kinda Nicklaus-esque.   They just stall a bit and it happens after impact. Can see how the belt loops are rotating all the way to impact.
    • At the top level the men may still be much better than the women at putting. Paige McKenzie once talked about how she played against some college guys who destroyed her on putting and she thought she was pretty good relative to her peers. I expect the best pro women ballstrikers have to work even less on putting to compete successfully than the guys where every edge is crucial just to get a card and make cuts. I love to watch Rory and DJ crank it out there. But I also get a kick out of Jim Furyk and Mo Martin's precision oriented play. It's all good. If they want to make accuracy more important for PGA players, all they have to do is grow the average event rough up a bit more so there's more of a penalty on every errant shot on the loss of spin and swing/ball speed reduction. Those are real issues for the sport...at least for facilities that don't cater to higher income golfers.
    • I have the Zepp 2 Golf (the round sensor).    Ive read the manual multiple times, and have approximately 500 ball strikes.    As I'm new to golf I can't seriously vouch for its accuracy, but I will say this: it's helping me improve my golf swing.    The 3D swing analysis is a great tool as is the swing comparison capability. In my opinion once you learn about what the tool measures and how it can be quite effective it    However, I do have a question: In the daily swings window, what does the red "P" next to the specific swing data mean?   Please and Thanks for any input.    V/R,  Chris
