Hi Guys,

I'm after a new 5 Wood and 3 Hybrid. Can anyone recommend an easy to hit and forgiving club in either category? The more help I can get the better!?

    If you don't mind super light weight then try Maruman Shuttle series woods and Ryoma hybrid. If you are looking for performance side, IMO - there are not much better than global gears.

    Thanks. Tourspec recommended the bb4. I'm now trying to decide what shaft. My last woods fitting was ping so I was put into the Alta fw in regular.

    I've tried googling global gears are they a head manufacturer?

    I am enjoying the Bridgestone JGR hybrids with the Recoil shafts. Easy to hit, great feel, and excellent shot quality.

    Sorry to make you confused, what I meant by "global" is just any common USDM brands.

    Ah, ok. Lol. Some of these JDM have weird names so I assumed that was one of them

    😂

    Forgiving and long but huge are the Ryomas. So many others as well. Proceed with DAT 55 face. A tad less forgiving. Muziik DU really good. Modart also very good and under-rated. A Grind has several models. Itobori, probably some of the most forgiving out there and cool looking if you like that kinda look.

    If you do, please post a review. They look very interesting indeed, I'm tempted to visit them next time I am in Tokyo...

    Long and forgiving. Just be ready for a massive size head.
