recommendations - hybrid from the deck


Recommended Posts

Been quite awhile since I have made any adjustments to the bag. Started to work on some new additions at the top. Looking for some recommendations on hybrids that perform well from the fairway/light rough. Need it mostly for shorter par 5s and the occasional long par 4. Typically, I use either 4wd or 4 iron replacement if I am going less than driver. Prefer little offset and a smaller profile (not a mini-wood), but not sure how these types play off the deck or less than stellar lies.

 

Looking at some older value models - Cally x2hot pro, apex, ping i25, adams pro. But open to suggestions/feedback. Any insight would be greatly appreciated!

Those F-series ones with the rails on the bottom seem popular. I liked the Nike Vapor Speed hybrids when I had them.

I love my Apex. But I had an X2 Hot Pro before that and it was a rocket as well. If you can find a Ping Anser in decent condition those are pretty sweet too.

I have a stock AeroBurner that I love. Thing is arrow straight and pretty consistent at 200-220 yds for my swing speed (sometimes a little further depending on weather and ground firmness/hitting into a hill or not). They can be had pretty cheap online new or used.

 

Only downside to my bag re-tool this season is that it will probably find itself getting dropped eventually since I'll have some distance overlaps. May find myself having to find something a little hotter and longer. Then again, hard to put a price on a reliable club with distance. I'll hit it off the tee at times with playing partners shocked I'd go hybrid. Meanwhile shot two is from the fairway while they're 20-40 yards ahead of me usually in the rough.

I am totally old school rocking the Kasco K2K 33, 44, and 55 (16, 19, and 22) as a 2,3 and 4 hybrid. They are so easy to hit off the ground it's laughable, high, straight, consistent distance, and the 33 and 44 have a slightly deeper face which makes them a bit more versatile out of the rough when necessary.

 

I hit the clubs about 220, 205 and 190 respectively.

 

I used the 44 to darn near eagle a par 5 today. I had a 15 foot putt for eagle on a 505 yard par 5 and was two turns short...tap in birdies are fun.

Adams pro mini. The best hybrid ever made. And they're about $40 on fleabay.

I have recommended these to so many people that now have them in the bag. Definitely worth trying. Worst case you're out $40.

 

would you advise the mini over the standard pro? given how much i play (and my homemade swing), i could benefit from from some forgiveness.

 

and thanks everyone. know this topic is covered quite a bit. ive gone through most of the threats. but appreciate this more specific insight.

Any of the Pings around the G25, G30 and G series would absolutely hit the spot. Would suggest going with 22 or 23 degrees from your 4 Wood, given what you described was the desired role in your bag.

 

Have heard amazing things about the Cobra F6/F7 with the rails on the bottom, but have not pulled the trigger in them yet. My G25 just flat out performs, so no reason for a change.

Look into the Titleiest line. The 910-915’s can be found inexpensively. Good shafts. Etc. I love that they are loft and LIE adjustable. It makes a huge difference, IMO.

I second the ping G or G400. G400 sits nice and square and they made it more anti left. I have the G currently and it is a breeze to hit off the fairway and out of rough, even use it for punch outs now too and does that great as well. I think ping is one of the best right now for low sitting fairways and hybrids. I never feel like it’s too big or deep faced that I can’t get it perfectly out of any lie which can’t be said for other hybrids I’ve tried.

for me, they hybrid search ended up being more about the shaft than the head.

 

+1. I like several heads in the compact category. So Cally Apex or X2 Hot Pro are good choices for me. Currently gaming Wilson C300, which is an excellent head. Looks great from address. A good strong trajectory.

 

Don’t love the stock Fuji shaft that came with it and am looking for a good shaft to install in its place.
