I'm looking for an 18*/19* hybrid to finish my set and have narrowed it down to the following 2013 models:

Callaway X Hot

Titleist 913H

Ping G25

Ping Anser

Adams Idea Tech V4

Cleveland Classic

Has anyone tried/got these and have any thought?

I'm a mid-handicaper who can hit reasonably far so will be looking to hit about 215 yards with the club. My golf pro is able to loan me demo versions of some of them so should be able to test at least the Callaway, Titleist and G25. Already got the demo Titelist 913H which I think is great but interested to see how it compared to the X Hot which is 20 quid less.

I tried the X Hot Pro and felt that it had a little too much offset for my liking, especially for a pro model. I know you can find a Nike VR Pro for cheap, that was a great hybrid that I used all year last season.

Thanks. My pro showed me in the shop how the X Hot Pro had a little more offset than the 913H, and even more so in the standard X Hot. I didn't think it was that much though; certainly not compared to the Ping G20 form last year. I'll have to try it though and see what I think.

I take it from the limited responses that everyone has a TaylorMade Hybrid then?

No, I use the Cobra AMP Cell. It's not on the poll.

Sorry but a white club will never, in a million years, find its way into my bag. Also rules out the Adams Super S.

Fair play. I'm sure the Cobra clubs are great but I've not really developed an affinity with them in the way I have for Callaway, Titleist and Ping equipment.

I've just taken the Titleist 913H for a proper test and think the others are gonna have quite a job on their hands to be any better.

    • Are you allowed to use the cart for the practice round.  If so, I would recommend using it, purely because you are practicing one day before the tournament and the less tired you are, the better.  For your caddie, it does not make a huge difference.  Unless carrying the bag tires him out so much that it will impact your pace of play during the tournament, either option is fine for him.  Good luck with the tourney and hydrating and carb loading the day before the tournament is huge.  Make sure you have a good breakfast early in the morning, say 6 am or so, which will then allow you to snack lightly through the tournament and keep your energy levels up
    • Shot 80 yesterday which is my best score since starting up golf again last year. I was 2 under after 7 so part of me feels a little bit disappointed that I let it slip!   I was feeling so good on the tee at 8 that I thought I'd hit a little draw into the lateral slope of the fairway to get a better position.  Unfortunately my ball missed the ground and went into the trees.  Took a few holes to get the wheels back on and back to playing shots I can actually hit.
    • Played better at Western Gailes yesterday and loved the course - very welcoming and had me thinking much more than Turnberry did as the greens were smaller with danger pretty much everywhere. I started out brilliantly, playing the first 4 in -1, but then turned into the wind - into and off the right - and immediately lost a ball playing for too much wind on the hardest hole, which I'd have bogeyed anyway. Putting again wasn't as good as it has been and I just haven't felt like I'm going to hole anything outside of 6 feet. Highlights were the first four holes, particularly feeling like DJ or Rory on the 4th, a good par on 7 (see below) and a good last four holes - bar another lost ball on 18...  http://www.gamegolf.com/player/benpage101/round/1072354 My par on the 7th - only swing I recorded was a really nice punch 5 iron from 170 into a strong breeze: 3rd tee: 'Secret' 6th green: Looking back on the 13th green: I get a few days' rest now before my last couple of rounds, both at Machrihanish Dunes. I've learnt a lot about my game playing these two rounds that I hadn't known beforehand. I find it really hard when I don't know the line and have to guess and commit to the shot far less. If I can see it though, it's generally fine. I need to sort the driving in the wind out as there's just no room for error - a slight mishit and a ball that would be safe is gone. Additionally, particularly at Turnberry, I need to stop overthinking things. Occasionally I'd find myself trying to hit a 7 iron with the ball miles back in my stance to deloft it, aiming way left to compensate and just should have hit what I felt comfortable with and taken the hit with the wind. My putting has to get better as well, particularly from range. So much fun though and I will definitely play Western Gailes again (probably more of a certainty than Turnberry) - I loved the course and the welcome you get was amazing.
    • Played better at Western Gailes yesterday and loved the course - very welcoming and had me thinking much more than Turnberry did as the greens were smaller with danger pretty much everywhere. The main thing I've taken away from this trip though is that I need to control my driver in the wind better. A lot of times, it was definitely the play and my second shot was excellent, but I lost too many going with the wind, which probably wouldn't have been too bad without it. Partial wedges were really good again and approach play was generally alright.
