Hybrid and Iron Shopping

22 posts in this topic

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.

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.

Why not look at the new 588's? Made to be mixed, can buy everything from a hybrid iron to a muscle back.

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.

    • It looks like the same scenario as DJ and Wattel in the open. Proximity of the golfer deforms the ground and the ball rolls off the blades of grass it was perched on. I think it's a bad penalty, because it's essentially random, though much more likely on very fast & sloped greens.
    • I liked Chappell as a possible pick early in the playoffs. He's a solid ballstriker with good length and the original 8 were a little thin there. If his putting has come alive during the playoffs (he's 'found' something) and his birdie average has bumped up then he would be a solid pick IMO. I think he'd be more of a contributor in fourball than foursomes with relatively weaker putting / short game than guys already on the team. Berger seems to have the most balanced game of the remaining pick options. McGirt and Woodland wouldn't be bad picks either. Justin Thomas may be a good 'chemistry' pick, but his stats for the year seem like he's got a very 'hit or miss' style of game. Maybe he was saving it for the end of the season, though? Moore would be an okay pick, but I expect he's a little short for Hazeltine (ballstriking is not his strength) and the squad already has Sneds and Zach. Duf wouldn't be a bad pick either if his game is on form and his putting has warmed up a bit.
    • On the penalty assessed to Justin Thomas, this will lead all golfers to mark their ball before putting anything but a tap in.  If he marks the ball and the places the ball back down, the ball probably won't move as it did.  With millions on the line, a player needs to mark the ball and inspect the putting surface.  Just a bad rule in my opinion but the ruling was correct.  Guilty until proven innocent.
    • If it is a municipal (city owned) course there may be no support from the city to maintain it beyond the absolute minimum. Truth is, cities have budgets and there is no money appropriated to improve it.  It really is a vicious circle.  Poorer conditions result in fewer rounds being played.  Costs out weigh revenue, rates are raised so even fewer people play the course and that results in less revenue.  It becomes an anchor on the city budget and easy prey for an investor.  So many muni courses have disappeared.

    • After reading all these stories of how rarely it has happened to you guys I feel like an absolute menace on the golf course.   First time I ever hit into a group in front of me it was a blind approach into the green.  I drove my cart to the top of the hill to get a line on the flag.  One guy was getting his ball out of the hole and another guy was carrying the flag back to the hole.  I figured that by the time I got back to my ball they would be gone.  I lined up my shot, took several practice swings, checked my line again, and then blasted a beautiful, high, straight shot over the hill, right on line at the flag.  Pulled back up the hill and saw they were still putting.  Went up to apologise, and they congratulated me on a great shot.  He said it clipped the brim of his hat as he was tapping in and checked up a foot from the cup.  They also insisted that I play thru. Second time I did it on that course I sliced my drive two fairways over and hit into a cart on the move up the cart path. It rattled around in the cart and they both dove out of the cart for cover. Happened a few times on my home course too.  Several holes have blind drives and approaches due to all the hills in East Tennessee.  When play is slow you inevitably catch someone in a blind spot.  I got stuck behind a slow group one day and had to wait for ever shot from the 4th hole on.  By the 6th a young twosome had caught up to my group because of the slow play in front of us.  By the back nine they started getting impatient and driving onto us.  On hole 14 the preferred shot is to hit 170-200 yard layup from the tee to leave a 130-160 yard uphill shot into a blind green.  I was about 150 yards out waiting on the green to clear when they teed off.  Their ball rolled right up to my feet.  I turned around angry and hit their ball right back at them.  I was so ticked I blasted my 150 yard club at least 200 yards back at them flying over their head and into the woods behind the tees.  Didn't see them anymore that day.
