Best Hybrid From Years Past?

Tour Edge Trilogy

 

I picked these up for a song 4 years ago and still can't find anything better. I liked the 3, 4 and 5 so much I've had an eBay search for a while for a 17* matching 2h. One popped up a couple weeks ago. It's longer and more accurate than any fairway wood I've ever tried. I'm a slower swinger with no business playing a 2h but it launches high and is very easy to hit.

 

Very solid hybrids.

Tour Edge released the XRail as a replacement. But I never found them as good as the Trilogy. The sound wasn't as hot and the graphics and finishes seemed cheaper like it was an afterthought.

Adams XTD. It's the oldest club in my bag. I've tried to replace it (thinking newer must be better), but nothing comes close in terms of consistency and distance.

TaylorMade Rescue-Mid TP's - 14*, 16*, 19*, 22* - These heads paired with the stock Fuji Vista Pro 90 .335 tip shaft is still just as good as it gets!

 

I always appreciated how the well-thought-out design made 'sky marks' virtually impossible. That can happen easily with hybrids with crowns painted right up to the clubface. Using very shallow faced clubs from deep rough can cause that problem if you should happen to cut under the ball a bit trying to gouge it out, however, there is no worry of that happening with these because the black painted crown is moved back, away from the clubface.

All of my hybrids are old by WRX standards. But I still play my Sonartec MD in 15* and 21*. Also my Adams A12pro in 16* and 20*. I've just recently put my really old 975F back into the rotation but I really prefer hybrids over FW.

Pair those Tour heads with an old school Fujikura 904hb and I'd still play one to this day.

I wander away at times, but I always come back to my Cobra DWS Baffler hybrids. They're just money. Not the longest, but they're just so easy to hit from any lie.

 

Just snagged a 29* last night on eBay. Can't wait to try it out.

    • Sony Open Pics from January 11, 2022 Part 1
      I was able to get out to the Sony Open today to take a few pics.  I guess due to Covid precautions they kept the spectators pretty far from the players.  Also due to camera restrictions they've put in place, I wasn't able to bring the big lens like I normally do. Hopefully they'll ease up on the ropes and I'll be able to get more pics tomorrow!
