Views on Nickent 3dx DC hybrids? Need input ASAP

Recommended Posts

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,

yarbz

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.

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

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

    • Not an individual tournament but with a partner(s), sure. Even if it's another low handicapper we can compete if we play well but most likely won't win. I agree with you what you're saying. Most of the club tournaments I play in have a gross division so it's not a big deal. One tournament where I've seen low handicappers have an advantage is a format where teams are divided into flights based on combined handicap. If you win that flight you play against the winners of the other flights in a horserace where strokes are greatly reduced. Most of the horse races I've seen or been a part of of are won by teams from the first two flights, the lower handicap flights.
    • Checked if my shoulders were too flat in a mirror. Apparently not as bad as I thought. I'd like to be more conscious of it before tomorrow's lesson. Going to do a bunch of slow movements through the evening and tomorrow morning then progressively speed up and see if everything still looks reasonable with a full speed swing. . .
    • I've never actually met a golfer who swings differently when under pressure, that is, if he can swing to his handicap at all? Golf starts with a good swing, without that you've got no game.   Yes, but the player is dialing things in at a range. On the course everything is much harder because you only hit any club once per 10 to 15 minutes or something like that.   There's no mental aspect when you have a chance to hit ball after ball successively from the shortest club to the longest one. On the range you're dialed in. That's why many people hit well on the range and not so well on the course.   If you do this with a proper swing, then I'd imagine yes. You'd have a good swing. That good swing in turn will give you more confidence than any sort of motivational speech.   I've never been able to will the ball to go where I want it to, and don't know anyone who can do that without the physical training required to develop a decent swing.
    • This.  Over the years we've heard so much about golf and sports being mental but where are the great tips and instruction on the mental side of the game?  I've read some books on the subject but so far not by anyone who sounded like they actually played golf.  Here's one mental thing that I've done to help my game, imo:   While getting into my address position I look long at my target, glance at the ball to get feet and ball position aligned.  One more good look at the target and when I look back to the ball I begin my swing almost immediately.  This keeps tension from creeping into my muscles by staying too long at address thinking about too many things.  It also seems to help me stay more alert during the swing, rather than getting all tense and just hitting a start/panic button.  To me, this is part of the mental game and is one way the mind can make a huge difference in shot result.
