What is the BEST anti-left hybrid out there?


Recommended Posts

Have the Titleist 816H1 Hybrid set to 1 degree flat and loft decrease 1 degree to help the occasional hook I hit with this hybrid and every hybrid I've ever tried. Have heard about the Callaway Apex hybrid being the most neutral bias hybrid out there...would like to hear from people who play it

Ping G410 has a flat setting. Really works!!

The 2020 Mizuno CLK is very neutral to slight fade bias.

I find the Callaway Apex hybrid (2015-16ish model) to be “anti left“ for lack of a better term. The only other hybrid that worked for me was the Adams Idea Pro, and they were designed by the same guy from what I was told by the club fitter when I purchased it. FYI you can always bend lie angles on them as well if needed!

Buy a left handed one instead?

On a serious note, the Callaway Apex hybrid seems to be anti hook. I too fight a hook with those hybrids so much that I stayed away for years. I found a Callaway Apex for cheap so I decided to try again and for some reason it's one of the more straighter ones.

I find the best "anti left hybrid" to be a driving/utility iron instead. Not sure there is a hybrid on the planet that I can't miss left. But give me a driving iron with a steel shaft......I'm good to go.

I've posted this so many times now, but it took me a long time to figure this out, so it worth repeating. I've been through a dozen hybrids, trying to find on that would not hook. I could hit long irons just fine. 7 woods just fine. I was more than ready to give up on hybrids all together, but I kept trying because they are so versatile. And I would hit some beautiful shots. But then... the hook that made me want to retire another hybrid. I realized it wasnt enough to swing the hybrid like an iron, you have to make it look and feel like an iron.

Pick up a hybrid that has a neutral or fade bias head. Might also need to be able to add head weight. For me, the Callaway Apex has a neutral setup, has a weight port, and looks more like an iron. Checks all the boxes.Cut the hybrid down to blend into your iron set. I play a 38.5 inch 4 iron, and all irons decrease 1/2 from there. Therefore my 3 hybrid is cut to 39 inches. Thats an inch shorter than standard, and I am 6'1. Shorter length leads to a more downward delivery, more consistent contact, and a flatter lie.Add weight. Probably start with the shaft. I was buying hybrids with stock shafts that were 60-70 grams. That's way too light. Shoot for 85 grams at least. You are likely going to need to add some headweight because of the shortened shaft. I changed out the stock 6 gram weight for a 12 gram weight. Anti left cannon.

Definitely agree, especially #2 and #3. Most hybrids are too long and too light for the average player, especially with those dinky 60-70g shafts. You can't expect a hybrid to feel and perform like an iron when you've dropped 40-60g of static weight from the club, and the subsequent timing issues that can often come from such a big drop in weight IMO are the primary cause of the left miss with people.

Apex 19. My son plays one (I’ve used it) and it looks neutral at setup.

He struggles with pushes that he occasionally releases early to save the shot and the Apex seems to keep the ball in play when that happens. He had a very GI Wilson D350 hybrid before the Apex and he struggled with hooks and overdraws so we know the Apex definitely helps him.

I'm not sure if this has been mentioned or not but I've had the Callaway Razr X Tour hybrid 19* and I bought it specifically to eliminate left shots. It has a very neutral face and minimal head profile and it rarely goes left much even if I put a bad swing on it which is really the source of my left shots.

I was pull-drawing mine, I think the lie angle is too upright, and I play irons are slightly upright. I cut 1/2" off the shaft which effectively flattened the lie angle a smidge then added lead tape to the toe to bring the swingweight back up and it is now a club I hit very straight and can fade if needed.

I pick 14 of the following:
Ping G400
Ping G410 3, 5 and 7 wood
Ping G 400 4 hybrid
Ping G 4-U
Ping Glide 2.0 Stealth 54, 58 SS

Very surprised to see the G410 on several contributions, for me it was the WORST ever. It had the 80g tensei blue shaft (too soft for me) - EVERYTHING went left

I found the 915Hd good and the SLDR TP with the 9.3 Motore shaft was the best I ever used, I just wish I had it back right now...still searching eBay for a good clean one..

For me a heavier, x-flex shaft tends curb the "anti-left" in most hybrids

Well if the shaft was too soft for you then I would hardly call that the Ping's fault, yeah? The Motore 9.3 is a heavier and stouter shaft as well.

So many good choices these days. Like many have said, shaft weight, lie angle, club length, and even center of gravity location are big considerations. I am a sweeper of the ball, so I don't put a lot of stock into the "you have to hit down on it like an iron" theory necessarily. Some of my recent favorites have been either of the Titleist TS lines (I play my TS2 with the Even Flow White T1100), either of the Callaway Apex clubs (2016 is one of my all-time favorites), Ping G410, the Mizuno CLK, and even many of the recent Cobra offerings with the right shaft.

I picked up three Ping G10's with the standard metal shafts (about 105 grams) … the 21 and 24 degree versions play no different than my irons when played at the factory lengths. As straight or curved as I desire - but do they land high and soft. The 18 degree version though is too long at the standard length and unfortunately needs to be cut to the same length as my 21 degree (if I do not want to hit left all day), thus why I play my 5 wood instead.
