When I saw the results, I couldn't help but chuckle. I bought the SIM Max 3 hybrid earlier this year when TGW had the glitch that allowed you to get the upcharge shafts at no charge. Played it for the early part of the year but determined that the unusually upright lie angle was just too much for me (I'm only 5'7"). What did I move on to? The G410 of course. Same shaft (AD DI) but man what a difference it made to have it play so much flatter than the SIM could. Very happy I made the switch.

So yeah....played two different hybrids this year and those two hybrids are firmly 1st and 2nd on the poll......I must have good taste, haha.

The thought that being able to flatten the head, and avoid the hard left… somehow that was left out of the description? One reference, and unexplained?

The 410 hybrid is the bee's knees because you don't have to fear it.

410LST 8º, 13º, 3h 18º, 210 4i, Blueprint s400ti, forged 50/54/58, fetch with breakthrough shaft. First par round 4 Oct 2020.

The Mavrik was the best hybrid for me this year. I hit almost all of them. It came down to the Mavrik, TS2, and G410. I was more accurate and a little longer with the Mavrik so it made it's way into the bag. It's been great on the course so far. The Sim Max was really bad for me for some reason. I'm sure it's me. It's the one I wanted going in but I just couldn't hit that one nearly as well as the rest.

The SIM max is awesome for me. I have it paired with a VA shafts Slay and it is the best feeling hybrid I have used. Sounds the best in my opinion as well, very muted. Before the SIM I played the epic flash hybrid, Titleist, apex 18, and a few others and this is by far the best for me. When I went to a fitting I did try the g410 hybrid but it wasn’t for me, but that was on a simulator. I’d like to try it out on some actual grass before writing it off completely.

TS2 for sure. I also had a G410 #3 late last year but couldn’t get along with it. I had a 23* 818 h1 which I really liked so upgraded to a 21* TS2 which I love, so much so that I’ve just bought a 19* TS3 to use off the tee. Only three shots with it so far but it works. Have just set it to 18* for tomorrow’s round. Hugely better that the Ping which looks really offset at address.

I bought the PXG hybrids this year and they are the easiest to hit and straightest clubs I have in my bag. I have only had three different hybrids since hybrids came out and I try new ones all the time so it takes a lot for me to kick out clubs that I hit well. For me, the PXG are longer which I expected since the technology was new than my Tour Edge CBX hybrids but I hit them literally twice as high which was important for a low ball hitter like me. Great clubs.

Just bought a Sim Max 22 degree Rescue. I was affraid that I would draw it to much. I actually struggled to draw it. I hit a nice pull fade with it. I have gamed the TS3 hybrids (3 and 4) too, but I didn't like the look of the club. Sim Max looks more like a wood than an iron at adress, which I like a lot. Gives me a ton of confidence.
