im looking to fill another gap. i want a 15° hybrid that is easy to hit. i need a club that i hit longer than my calloway x-hybrid 2H. the problem is there isnt a lot of options in this loft. i would prefer a stiff graphite shaft cause i will use this club off the tee mostly. a 15° 3 wood would be ok if it has a short enough shaft, i get a little wild with longer shafted clubs. remember, easy to hit. please help.

we rarely have demo days and people around here dont stock enough stuff for fittings. even if i got fitted, i could find it online for WAY cheaper so i usually just play standard stuff and it fits fine. are the slingshots long, distance wise? i dont want to get something i cant hit farther than my calloway 18°

The slingshot is the best club im my bag IMO. It's very forgiving, I can hit it about 180-190 not even warmed up yet. I have a 2H which I believe is a 17 degree hybrid. Definatly give it a shot!

anyone have any experience with the new ping g10 hybrids yet? i can get it with a proforce shaft for 125 on ebay. its 150 new from tgw:

I have a g10 and it is a very easy club to use and very solid. Prefered it in testing to the little titleist and the cobra

i havent got to see one in person yet, does it have a ton of offset? big and bulky, or more like a players hybrid? what shaft did you get?

Since you request an easy to hit club, I suggest you try a Cobra Baffler DWS #1 Hybrid, with the Aldila NV shaft. It is actually 16 degrees, not 15. But give it a try. The Cobra Baffler is the easiest to hit club I've ever swung. I own 5 bafflers: 16, 18, 20, 23 and 26 degrees. I recently replaced the 16 degree with a Titleist 906F4 3 wood, but I will be rotating that club with the 16 degree Cobra. Do yourself a favor and demo this club. Good luck.

i should have gotten a baffler instead of my calloway but i got a good deal on it so i took it. i would get teh baffler 1h you are talkin about but i want a 15° or 14° im affraid 16° just wouldnt cut it for the distance i want.

I hit the g10 hybrid at a golftown around where I live and I thought was okay, I'd go with the Nickent 4DX amazing, it goes a long way.

No idea why you would want a hybrid to "go a long way," thats what a driver is for

The g10 has a long but narrow face, certainly not bulky. I has the V2 high launch shaft in it, it stiff, plays like a board but very solid!

actually i want it to go a long way cause my driver is all over the place lately and i have been using my 18° off the tee on my trouble holes. i dont play a 3 wood so this will kind of fill in that gap i have there. i looked at the g10 and slingshot today, neither was the loft im looking for but the g10 looks real nice to me. i didnt get to hit either one of them but i dont think anyone in town will have the loft and shaft i want so im probabaly gonna have to order one without hitting it first. im tryin to be patient and wait til i go to St Louis this weekend but im not sure if i can wait that long.

Here's some unsolicited advice: wait to hit the clubs before you buy to avoid buyer's remorse. Also, you might be surprised how far you hit a 16 degree hybrid. I wouldn't discount the possibility of the Cobra Baffler just because it has a 1 degree higher loft than you're looking for. Use judgement based on real life experience. Good luck to you.

honestly i would like 14° but the only on i see is the nickent 4dx. im trying to be patient and not order one until after this weekend because im gonna try to find a large golf store in st louis to demo some hybrids because my local stores dont stock jack. when i decided to get a new hybrid, baffler was the first one on my mind, i was a little disappointed to see them not make the loft i wanted. i will try to hit the one you are talking about before i make a purchase though, thanks. so im planning on hitting the 16° baffler, 15° g10 with the v2 shaft and the 14° 4dx with v2 shaft.

    • Penn State just mandated masks for all indoors, vaccinated or not. Vaccinated people will not have to be tested, though.

    • Well, shoot!  And I was just about to invite you to an all expense paid round in the Bahamas with me!  😁
    • I still kinda liked the guy... but not anymore.  I try not to associate with idiots.
    • This was, admittedly, my first reaction when I found out I was about to be eligible for the vaccine:  I'm young, I'm relatively healthy, wouldn't vaccinating me at this time ("this time" being early March of 2021 for the first shot) keep someone who is more at-risk from getting a vaccine, when they'd have higher need? As soon as I found out (it took an hour, tops;  one call to someone knowledgeable on the topic) that supply wasn't the limiting factor, I made my appointment.   I had my second shot more than four months ago now. At least in the U.S., supply isn't the issue.  If your reason to not get it is worrying that you're taking it from someone who needs it more, not to worry -- you can both get the vaccine, no problem.  But as was pointed out elsewhere in this thread (and in others), Bryson might not have been burdened with an overabundance of schooling.
