I need to find a 4 or 5 hybrid for my dad and don't want to spend more than $100. Which models from the last few seasons have stood out to you?

    Srixon h45/h65. Don't know where you're based but I got a h45 and an f45 a couple of years ago for £60 each (demo clubs) and they are the best hybrid and woods I've ever used. A month ago I picked up a h65 and an f65 for £160 for the pair, both still in their wrappers. Srixon is insanely underpriced here in the UK.

    I bought a titleist 818 h1 25 degree and a 816 h1 27 degree for £100 and £50 respectively. 818 was like new the 816 was a bit more used but still acceptable.

    I would suggest the Cobra F7 4/5 hybrid. It's adjustable and seems less susceptible to hooks that other hybrids that I have used.

    I really like the old Cobra hybrids from years ago. DWS, Baffler, etc.

    I just picked up a 4 hybrid for $26. And I buy the ones with the Nippon GH950 steel shaft. Easily the most consistent club in my bag.

    It is embarrassing to admit, but I've gone to all Tommy Armour Atomics for driver/wood/hybrids. Surprisingly good, with nice EvenFlow Red shafts.

    $59.99 now for the hybrids.

    I 2nd the Srixon H65 and can also recommend Nike Vapor Fly. Feels and sounds great and is easy to hit well.

    Good advice here. Both great clubs. Just switched from 816 to 818. Slightly prefer the 818 cosmetically and a tad more forgiving but could still happily play 816.

    Ping, Cobra, Cally are where I would look. Easier to launch.

    Exact opposite for me, it was unplayable... I love the LTD driver, and the F6 3 wood. For me looks weird and feels weird.

    Adams Idea super is an oldy but a goody. Been abgging mine since (2012-13). Just picked up a 20* got it delivered off eBay for under $45. It's an old club so may be losing some advantages, they launch high, and I don't lose them left.

    Cobra Baffler/Baffler XL/F-Max. Offset, high launch, rail sole. Perfect hybrid for a lot of people. The Cleveland Launcher hybrid-irons from the a couple of years ago you should be able to find for pretty cheap as well.

    I would say look at the Cobra FlyZ from 2015. You mention "4 or 5H," this adjustable model bridges the gap.

    Used market varies from about $50 for "gently used," up to $99 if you find one with cellophane still on head.

    The model features 2-3H (16-19°) / 3-4H (19-22°) / 4-5H (22-25°). The lofts overlap, adjustable with the MyFly8 hosel assembly. I originally played the 3-4H as a 4H, but then lofted it down to 3H 19° and play the 4-5H as a 4H lofted down to 22°. This gives me a slight fade out of a square stance - a handy option since my stock shot is a draw. And, I can draw the Hs out of a closed stance.

    I carry my 4H year round, and sub in my 3H for the 7W in cold weather when the winds are higher and the rough thinner.

    Stock shaft was the Matrix VLCT Altus; the shaft is a bit heavier than you find on most basic hybrids - I play VLCT 73-gram senior flex (rest of my bag is R-flex.) I can feel head at the top, but still feel a lively pop at impact. Other shafts also are available.

    Further the model features a SmartPad on the sole: this keeps the club level (won't rock upright or flat) when you change the loft.

    For aesthetics, FlyZ offers a designer's touch on head color: white, black, blue, green orange and red finishes.

    This video is fairly straight-forward on what the FlyZ model offers:

    What's In The Bag *...

    Driver: Calla XR16 Pro 10.5° (set open) / Fuji Evolution II TS Speeder 665 R-flex 63 gr.
    FWs: Tour Edge XRail 4W + 7W / GraphiteDesign G60 R-flex 60 gr.
    or Calla Alpha 815, set 16° + 20° / Fuji Motore Speeder 665 R-flex 62 gr.
    Hybrid: Cobra FlyZ 3H 19° + 4H 22° / Matrix VLCT Altus Lite flex 73 gr.
    Irons: Tour Edge CB Pro Tungsten 4i - PW** / KBS Tour 90 R-flex 101 gr.
           4i refitted with SteelFiber 780 HLS Hybrid shaft R Flex 75 gr.
    Wedge: Calla MD3 48°/8.SS + 54°/12.WS + MD.PM 60°/10  | KBS Tour R-flex 110 gr.  | Note: MD4 58°/8.C-grind may replace MD/PM
    Putter: Ping Sigma G Tyne (face-balanced) / 34" w. Ping Pistol PP60 grip (stock)
    Bag: Sun Mountain Three 5 stand bag
    Ball: Calla SuperHot - orange
    * Either 7W or 3H left out, depending on course and season.
    ** Wedges: 46°and 48°are competing for bag space.

    YES!! Just started bagging XP-1 hybrids and they beat literally every other hybrid in my fitting. G410 was closest runner up. I am sure older models perform great as well. I was shocked at how great they are. Never even considered heading into the fitting.

    The Pro Mini 23 and 26 degrees are the most favorite and oldest clubs in my bag. All my other clubs are relatively new.

    I have been gaming the old Nickent 6DT's for almost a decade now. I got them new for 50% off after they went bankrupt but before Dick's bought them and churned out the garbage clubs with the Nickent badge and ruined their investment.

    Real voodoo shafts. Every year I test new hybrids and still can't find anything I hit better. About 30 bucks on ebay now. It would be hard to find a better value IMO.
