Lower Launch Hybrid or Driving Iron

10 posts in this topic

Here's my problem, spend a lot of time playing in the wind and current hybrid (Ping Anser) launches way too high.  Great downwind, but gets killed into the wind.   Have learned to knock it down, but would prefer something a bit more user friendly.  I've given some thought to switching out the shaft (currently have Tour Stiff that comes stock), but want to see if I can simply find a hybrid (or even a driving iron) that has a higher COG.

9.0 index, so I have some game, and wouldn't shy away from more of a "player's hybrid."

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Off the tee, I'll go with the driver into the wind no problem.  Off the deck, on the other hand, not my favorite shot.   Looking for something to play from the fairway/rough.

Got it.  Not sure while I assumed a tee shot.....

Everyone will point you towards their particular favorite, and I'm no different.  I'm carrying Titleist 910h's and really like them.  Easy to work and a nice boring trajectory that I can flight much easier than I could my old Nickent 3dx's.  I'm sure the newer 913's are similar, or save yourself a couple of $'s on the prior generation 910's....

As you can see my handicap is twice yours, but I just got a TM #2 hybrid and put in a UST Mamiya PROFORCE AXIVcore reg flex shaft. It's long and low. Just my 2 cents worth.

An adjustable hybrid would be my choice, can be tweaked on different days when conditions change. I chose the Cobra Cell because they were the most iron like of all the 2013 hybrids I tried.

DEMO EVERY hybrid that you can ......then get properly fitted for the one you like the best.

You might look at the Adams V4 hybrids. They come with Bassara 60 x 5ct. shaft which is low to mid-launch; the stiff version would be 64 grams, which might be a little light for a 9 HDCP.

I play the R-flex 4H, and among other things use it on tee shots for two short par 4s and a longer par 3 which often play into the wind. I may get the 3H also, and sub out my 7W on windy days.

The V4 family is going out of production so act quickly if you're interested.

make sure you get the right golf shaft. I have an Adams hybrid with a x-stiff high kick shaft in it, and it launches medium and bores through the wind. Great club.

I found the Anser hybrids already on the lower launching side compared to other hybrids.  The 913HD or 713U are the only two I can think of that launches on the lower side than the Anser.  Its tough when facing the wind regardless of clubs though.

What degrees is your current Anser and what distance is that club for you?
