  2. The claim is usually about launch window, peak height, and descent angle. (Ex: This 31 degree 7-iron launches at the same angle, reaches the same peak height, and has the same angle of descent as the 34 degree 7-iron of yesteryear) I'm not enough of an engineer or tester to know whether that's actually true, or just marketing hype to make people feel better about the loft creep.
  3. As others have said, it's because you have only posted 3 scores. Once you have played 20 rounds, your handicap will be based on the best 8 differentials of those 20 rounds. Right now, it's based on the best single differential of your 3 rounds (92 on a 73/132 = 16.3 differential) minus 2 = 14.3
  4. Where would you usually draw that line? PW (45*)? 9-iron (41*)? 7-iron (33*)? Just depends?
  5. @MonteScheinblum, would you and the other more seasoned players (@Obee, @[email protected] Drake) say that there is a law of diminishing returns when it comes to the left-arm parallel swing through the bag? I'm in the average range where my stock full-swing carry under normal conditions is: Driver: 250-260 4W: 215-220 3H: 200-205 4H: 190-195 5i: 180-185 6i: 170-175 7i: 160-165 8i: 145-150 9i: 135-140 PW: 125-130 GW: 110-115 SW: 95-100 LW: 85-90 I see the obvious value in a controlled left-arm parallel feel swing for a 110 yard shot with a PW when my full shot usually goes 125 yards. But what about faced with 170 yards and it's between a full swing 6-iron, or using that same left-arm parallel feel shot with a 5-iron. Or deciding a shortened 4W from 190 is preferable to the all-out 4H? I feel like there would generally be a drop-off where 3/4 shots with wedges are preferable to full swings, but using that same 3/4 feel with a mid-iron/long-iron/hybrid is suboptimal.

  7. 1. Keep arm/wrist/grip tension light 2. Focus on the front edge of the ball 3. Smooth transition. 4. Swing to the target and see the divot before I look up to watch the flight. I know “keeping your head down” is not trendy these days, but my miss is usually on the thin side, so it’s a feel that helps me.
  8. The average lie issue does make them closer to the irons. But the 3H/3W is still only a 1* lie difference at 2.75” difference in length. I would be very interested to know if a lefty adapter would reverse the flat settings to more upright. That would be ideal.
  9. Did you find a more upright solution? I have spent the last couple hours looking at the major OEM specs and it appears that the conventional wisdom that hybrids are upright hook machines isn’t accurate. They might be hook machines due to other factors such as ball position, shaft weight/flexibility, offset, and bulge/roll, but the current generation hybrid lie angles are flatter to length than irons and woods almost across the board.
  10. Yeah, look at my post above yours comparing the stock progression of the Ping i210 irons to G410 hybrids to G410 Fairways. The hybrids are already WAY flat relative to the irons and woods. And the adjustable hosel can only go EVEN FLATTER. That's a surprising spec sheet, too, since Rory is well under 6 feet tall.
  11. I know, right? But the lie angle doesn't make sense to me. Looking at Ping as an example, in particular, because that's what all of my clubs are. Stock Specs: Club / Length / Lie i210 3-iron / 39" / 60* G410 4-hybrid / 39.75" / 58* - only added 0.75", but went 2 full degrees flatter G410 3-hybrid / 40.25" / 57.5* - added 0.5", went 0.5" flatter G410 2-hybrid / 40.75" / 57* - added 0.5", went 0.5" flatter G410 5-wood / 42.5 / 57* - added 1.75", no lie change G410 3-wood / 43" / 56.5* - added 0.5", went 0.5" If they kept the same standard progression at 0.5" = 0.5 lie change, it would be this: Club / Length / Lie i210 3-iron / 39" / 60* (same) G410 4-hybrid / 39.75" / 59.25* (1.25* upright from stock) G410 3-hybrid / 40.25" / 58.75* (1.25* upright from stock) g410 2-hybrid / 40.75" / 58.25* (1.25* upright) G410 5-wood / 42.5 / 56.5* (0.5* flat from stock) G410 3-wood / 43" / 56* (0.5* flat from stock) Look how much flatter the stock hybrids are that the rest of the progression! The stock 4-hybrid is 0.75" longer than the stock 3-iron, but 2 full degrees flatter. The stock 5-wood is 1.75 INCHES longer than the stock 2-hybrid, and the SAME lie angle. The hybrids are super flat relative to the irons and woods. And the adjustable hosel can't even go upright, only even more flat.
  12. That's going to make the handle higher and exacerbate the issue on a club that's already flat.
  13. I haven't done a vertical line test, but of the couple of 58* 4-hybrids I have tried, all have been off of grass, and I am unmistakably hitting them off the toe consistently. There are repeat grass impressions in a quarter-sized mark, toe-side. I actually do get different result from the strike location. Most are push cuts, but I can have the gear effect take hold and hit a low snap-hook, too. But while the flight changes, the strike location doesn't.
  14. I'm 6'2" and was fit for irons at +0.5", +1.5 up. This puts my 5-iron at 38.5" and 62.5* lie angle. Going by the general progression of +0.5" = -0.5* lie angle, a 39.5" 4-hybrid would fit me at a lie angle of 61.5*. Yet most of the 4-hybrids now come at a lie angle of around 58*. Examples: Ping G410: 58* (can ONLY be adjusted flat, not upright) Callaway Apex 19: 58* (not adjustable) Titleist TS2: 58.5* (can go up to 2* upright) Taylormade SIM Max: 60.5* (not adjustable) Has anyone else had the issue of actually needing hybrids that are more upright with the trend to push them more flat? I admit confused about the general consensus that hybrid lie angles are too upright and the trend for hybrids that adjust flatter. When I hit a 39.5"/58* hybrid, I'm off the toe all day long, which is exactly what you would expect when it's 3 degrees flat to my iron progression. The SIM is obviously well more upright than the others at 60.5*, and the Titleist can get to that same angle, so those may be a little better for me. What was your solution?
  15. Has anyone had any experience putting an XP95 iron shaft in a hybrid? I recently switched from XP95 R300s in my irons to Nippon N.S. Pro Modus 3 Tour 105 Stiff shafts in my irons. My 3 and 4 hybrids are still shafted with stock 70g R-flex graphite shafts, making the weight/flex gap between my hybrids and irons even larger than it was before. They feel very whippy now. So I thought a light-weight/high-launch iron shaft like the XP95 S300 could work well to bridge the gap in my hybrids as a much less expensive alterative to heavier, premium graphite shafts. I would love to hear anyone's thoughts and if its just a terrible idea.
