Hybrid and Iron Shopping

Recommended Posts

I am beginning to look for a 2 hybrid and I just need a little help deciding.  I currently have an old Adams A2 3 hybrid that I've kept from an old iron set and I really want to upgrade it.  I don't like Callaway and Nike stuff but I am open to anything else.  I don't really have any preferences except that I do NOT want anything draw bias.  My miss with current hybrid is a draw/hook.

Same thing with Irons, pretty much anything but Callaway and Nike.  I currently have 3-pw Cleveland CG reds.  At the moment I am favoring Titleist's AP2s and Mizunos MP line but I am open to trying something else out.

Thank you!

Just hit as many as you can. Hybrids are so varied that it's really hard to give any kind of recommendation.

I've tried a few newer hybrids, but my favorite is still my Cleveland Halo 2i hybrid...I'll have that club till the day I die probably.

If I didn't have a clubmaker around, and needed to customize a hybrid, I'd opt for the Titleist 913H. It's a nice club. Titliest has a good selection of stock shafts, its weight adjustable, along with loft, and lie. Demo.

If you like to stay in one line, lotza people like the AP2s. Demo. If you fall in love, they ought to have a nice selection of shafts from which to choose.

To the OP, Mr. Desmond's advice is solid. I've highlighted the two most important points for your reference.

Gotta hit the store and try them out man. I went in and hit 4 or 5 different hybrids and singled it down to the TaylorMade Rescue 11 vs Titleist 913H. The titleist was fantastic but I didn't want to pay the hefty price tag. The taylormade was also great and I hit it well so I took that. After 5 months of hitting it I'm happy I bought it.

I know you don't love Callaway, but you might try their earlier Edge Tour 2H. You should be able to it in stiff flex here or there.

I tried the model's 3H (in an R-flex shaft) a couple of year's ago, and it was one of the first hybrids (along with some Adams models) that I was able to hit decently. And I only have average clubhead speed.

Just a thought.

So far I've only had a few minutes to try something out but I hit the Titleist 913H, 910H and loved them both but I'm still going to try some others out.

As for irons, I haven't had a chance to demo anything yet but hopefully I will get to soon.   Thanks for all of the replies!

I hit everything from Adams and cobra and also loved the taylormade rescue 11 I bout a 3 and 4 the only problem I have is that they are a little harder to draw then others but I hit those things from anywhere. Also bought a 5 that just sits in my garage. I got a good deal on the 3 but love them

I swear by Adams hybrids.  The A12 OS hybrids that I have are excellent.  The ball bounces off the face of the club with minimal swing effort.  Check out any Adams hybrid they offer a large selection to choose from.

I recently purchased new irons. There are a lot to choose from and some really great feeling clubs. As mentioned, be sure to hit as many as you can before making that final decision. As for me, I put my vote in for the Mizuno's - MP64. I've played Titleist for the last 8 or so years and wanted a new look. I hear the AP2's are really good, but nobody forge's a club to feel and sound as good as Mizuno. I don't swing 3i and added Mizuno's H4 4i to my set. It's a great compliment and makes swinging a long iron very easy. Good luck and have fun shopping around.

Thanks for all of the replies!  I am still shopping around.  I have recently found a used set of Adams CB1's and hit them and they felt wonderful!  I have also hit the AP2's, MP63, MP53, Cleveland 588 CB, and Cleveland CG16 tours.  As of right now price may the determining factor as I have liked everything that I have hit so far.  Any recommendations or thoughts on the ones I have hit thus far?

Also, I am pretty set on getting either the Titleist 910H or 913H.  I've hit some other hybrids and just performed the best for me.  And I love that I can adjust it.

    • I'll do that with friends.  One time I was hitting well at an indoor range.  So I'd just hit the same spot on the wall as my friend did.  He noticed pretty quickly actually.  It's a good drill (break the glass type thing)
    • They have moved the 3-point line back. Baseball has allowed the ball to be juiced to increase home-run rates. https://fivethirtyeight.com/features/in-mlbs-new-home-run-era-its-the-baseballs-that-are-juicing/ No one was complaining about all the HR's in baseball until they found out that the players were taking steroids. They found it exciting, and baseball was at its peak popularity. https://www.beyondtheboxscore.com/2014/2/10/5390172/major-league-attendance-trends-1950-2013 There has been a down turn since the implementation of more PED restrictions. The primary issue is, if PGA Tour players think that playing with those clubs the day before the tournament starts will screw up their game, then there is no way this gets implemented.  
    • It really depends upon why they're a 15 handicap. A high swing speed is basically all you need to back up the ball. If they can make a 56 degree wedge hiss aggressively, they can probably back it up on firm greens. There are many 15 handicaps who can swing really fast, but hit lots of trees on the way to the green.   Sure, this is true. Even instructors who've been "doing it for years" and "seen 100,000s of thousands of golfers" can make be mistaken about someone's ability even seeing them up close. The problem is no one knows what's going on "in your swing" except yourself. Even then, may of us don't know. The 300 yard 20 capper example you gave is not unrealistic. An old instructor who fit many clubs over half a century told me that the average male should be able to get 105mph swing speed. He based this on understanding mechanics and seeing people's swings are not even close to optimal. He's a TGM advocate, and seems to know his stuff. On the internet could sound just like a 76 year old kooky golfer, but in real life he makes a lot of sense and has a great swing to back it.
    • I'm not very good. With that being said, my yardage gaps are consistent (10-15yds) all the way through my bag so fairway shots >95 yards are always full shots for me. I practice <95yd shots on the range regularly, so I am capable of rolling a 3/4 swing out across my bag. Now, I'm not very good (remember?). With that being said, I am in trouble frequently off the tee and I have to focus on less-than-full swings regularly to get the ball back in play. Off-fairway/slight trouble, my go-to play is a 6i since i can keep it low (read: under a tree) and can control distance "pretty well" anywhere from 100-150yds, typically staying within 20 yards of intended target. Sometimes this is more of a punch shot, other times I am trying to draw it around trees (mostly unsuccessfully). But - If I am my full 6i distance though, I am hitting a full 6. The biggest problem I have is instead of taking a 3/4 full swing, I have the tendency to decelerate leading me to hit about 24" behind the ball - this is why I typically opt in for full swings when I can. Purely Mental... Maybe I'll get on the range and try this "flighting" technique a bit more
