Hybrid Reviews

32 posts in this topic

Im looking for a 21/22 degree hybrid and I like the looks of the Ping i25 just curious if anyone has hit this hybrid?  Im also looking at the Nike 2.0, the Titleist 913 H and Callaway X 2Hot. Any feedback on these or any other suggestions would be great.

Thanks

Jake

Have you tried out any of the Adam's line? I tried a couple recently and like them. They feel more like an iron to me than other hybrids do which I like.

I have and I honestly can't stand that slot or whatever it is on the top. One of my buddies has one and I just can't stand looking at it.

If you want to try out the Ping i25, try to find a place that still sells or has the Ping i20's. Much better club, with a better shaft in it. You can probably find them on sale.

Good point, I would go with the i20 as well.  You can get them for much less anyway.

I don't care about the $$$ I got a bunch of gift cards for Christmas. Ill try the i20 I'm not crazy about how it looks but I haven't seen that one in person. I had an RBZ that I sold but that's more because I had 2 club's with the same loft.

SERIOUSLY!?!?!?!

i20's are the best looking wood and hybrids EVER!!!

Ok a little over dramatic, but how can you say you don't like how they look with out seeing them in person. :-D

Sorry I just looked it up. I was thinking of the G20 not the I. The i20 does look good. Why do you think the shaft is bad in the i25?

Because the i25 golf shafts feel horrible. The i-series is suppose to be for better players. The shafts are not nearly stout enough for anybody with significant club head speed. Just my personal preference on that one.

Well I don't know what is significantly high club head speed but I doubt I have it.

I just picked up the Nickent F26 3H. I really like it so far. Hit it with a TMAG, Callaway, adams and a cobra and it was the best for me. Has an adjustable lie/loft. Nice sound with impact, shaft feels sturdy, and distance is good with my swing (215 with this one). Id recommend trying it out.

I'm definitely going to be giving the x hot a try. I have the x hot pro 3 wood and I absolutely love it. Last year I struggled with my 3&4 irons so I'm looking for a hybrid.

So I was looking at the i25 online and I was wondering how much difference there is between their 80g shaft and the 90g? Is that even enough to make a difference? The torque is 3.1(80 vs 2.8(90) Im not knowledgeable on shaft enough to know if that really matters.

I've got two Cleveland Launcher hybrids, about 3 yrs old.   Best clubs in my bag.  The 23* works from 160-175 and the 18* add 10-15 yrds.  Easy to hit, consistent and highly recommended.

I ended up getting the X2 Hot 22 degree. I found pretty quickly that I don't like the smaller headed hybrids. I was having trouble choosing between the X 2 Hot and the Corvet 2.0. I ended up choosing the Callaway because it was a bit longer and felt better on off center hits.

Good choice. You will have the x utility for getting off the tee on tight holes and the x2 hot for easier use from various lies. I like it. I have a 22 degree myself as well.

I love them off the tee. When I need a go too shot from the tee, break out the hybrid. I honestly can't remember ever mishitting the hybrid off the tee.

I think I am going with the new Titleist though. I'm trying to find a good low degree hybrid to replace my 3-wood.

    • He started off playing the first hole exactly how he should: fairway, 20-footer for birdie to the fat side of the green, tap-in par.
    • @iacas-Tho it is nice to be able to take your time and type out what you mean to say this is one of the downsides to a forum too-You have to respond to a whole bunch of crap and a person can get all of their thoughts out uninterrupted. If you were been sitting in a room with @natureboy and he started drawing that entirely stupid picture with the lines you could have cut him off and spared all of us the pain of having to watch him so badly miss the point. I bet @natureboy is still going to look at the response-And I bet he is still not going to see where he went wrong. But that is because he is just that way and he is unable to see how stupid his own posts are and how little they actually deal with golf swings. His stick drawing is exactly why you asked for a video-Even though he posted it after you asked. His errors and flaws and stupid thoughts would have been even more evident if he had actually tried to make a vid.
    • Or… golf is hard, and he got hot for awhile. Wouldn't be the first flash in the pan. We'll have to wait to see what the true version is. He could be quiet for ten years and then win a few majors.
    • That makes a great third bullet point. Or a first bullet point, bumping my two down.
    • This photo and the text above illustrate pretty well exactly why I and the entire moderation team is now done with you. The image fails on two levels: The center image is not representative of an actual good golf swing. The right hip is closer to the right foot in the center image, yet you maintain that it's farther away. Whether the second thing is done intentionally or accidentally I don't know. I don't care to know. But it's very representative of how you argue, and why you're now going to be prevented from arguing. You pervert arguments to the point where we're no longer discussing the golf swing. You get basic facts or concepts wrong (like when arguing about course rating, misunderstanding the radius vs. diameter in faulting the rating process for higher handicappers). You focus on some small thing - which often isn't even something anyone else has said - and lose sight of the forest or the big picture. You're not here to help golfers. You're here to "win" an argument, a goal that as yet is unmet, and you have to post absolute crap like the above to try to do it. I had a bit of free time this morning. So I responded to your last post in some detail. It, as one would expect, contains a number of typical @natureboy traits: cherry picking a photo while ignoring the concept, failure to understand basic points, perversion of the statements of others, putting words in the mouths of others, use of vague words like "a lot" (often in combination with the "putting words in the mouths of others), and hyper-focus on some small largely negligible point. Nobody else should waste their time to read the below, or open the spoiler and read that. It will not shed light on anything, it will not help you with your golf swing, and you will not glean any useful information. It exists simply as my last effort at illustrating to @natureboy a small part of the reason why we're tired of him… even though as I post it I know with certainty it too will fail. I gave you twenty warning points last night. It was made clear to you what you had to do, and you failed to do so, flaunting the requirement in several posts. The entire moderation team - @mvmac, @RandallT, @boogielicious, @jamo, @billchao, @nevets88, @mchepp, others - and myself have simply gotten sick and tired of your entire persona here. You're constantly and never-endingly arguing stuff to the point where you bastardize things so much you're no longer even talking about the golf swing, and you fail to comprehend or respond to what's written to you in response. You have two real choices once your current suspension is over: You can ignore these warnings, continue to be a belligerent arguer, and receive a final 50-point warning that will result in your permanent ban. You can avoid behaving in the manner that infuriates the entire moderation team. That will likely mean limiting the topics in which you post quite a bit, because though you fancy yourself to be capable of discussing the golf swing from a theoretical perspective, you've proven that you are not. Now, I want to be very clear about something. You're not being warned or "handled" because you disagree. You're being handled here because you contribute nothing positive. You're belligerent. You don't help people. You don't demonstrate anything. You pervert and distort topics in order to make a point that often has little or nothing to do with how people actually play golf. You're on a mission to "win" an argument, not to further the understanding. You speak as if you know and fail to ask questions, despite the holes in your logic and posts being constantly exposed as gaping. You quite often fail to read what's written, take a beat, and try to understand it. P.S. This requirement is anything but arbitrary. The list of reasons are long, the surface of which was only scratched in this post. Arbitrary would have been to say something like "to continue posting here you must dress up in a purple outfit and post a photo of yourself diving from a diving board into a pool of jello." Asking you to post a video illustrating your point is the opposite of arbitrary.
