Hybrid Help

OK,

 

I am going to put it out there, since I just was at a local shop and am a bit more confused now.

 

My set make up, I need a hybrid. I used to have the Rescue Mid (not TP - my fault) with stock shaft, 19*. Hook monster. I then put in the Banzai. Great feel, still ballooned it alot. My 4 iron was just as far. I put the Irod in, and that helped, but it still had too much draw bias in it. Was having too much trouble staying off the left side of anything!!

 

Here's some particulars with my swing: average Driver SS 101, hybrid (today) was low 90's. I am more of a digger, so the Sonartec does not suit me well. My hcp is 4.8, but I really dont play consitently to it.

 

Options??

Looked at Resuce TP (looking for a used one since I dont want to drop $300) liked it

Looked at Cleveland Halo (like it, but I think I was not hitting it well due to the rounded sole) and the LDI

Was blown away by the J33!!!

 

ANy ideas?? I play TA7 Tours with DGS300s

 

My current set make up has my 905R V2 stiff 9.5*, Cally BB2004 3+ (13*) with stock firm shaft, Cally 5+ with Blue Tour Stiff (17*)

 

I think the 19* will be too close to the 17* for gap's sake, so I was looking for the 20-22* range. Mostly need it for longer par three's at 200 yrds. I also am looking for a bit of forgiveness. My misses are to the right. A miracle club to take me out of the rough from 200+ may be too much to ask, but at least it should be easy to take from the fairway (home course is tightly cut and firm) and from a good lie in the rough.

 

Bombs away!! Thanks in advance brothers!!!

Thanks!!!!

 

Is the Airmuscle forgiving? I was just blown away by how it felt. I hit it in a simulator today, and it was going fairly straight and consistently 200yrds. It has the NV 85H Stiff in it. Used at $122.

 

I also hit the LDI, and it was not consistent, but felt nice. The steel DG SL Stiff was the best option. I also hit the HALO (Used to have the 19* and ripped it) but wasnt getting good results. I have the TM Resuce still, so I may trade it in.

 

The Cally Heavenwood feels great, but hit it only into a net.

 

Dont like the Titleist, not that forgiving. Like the TP's but too much dough for the new duals. Hard to find a 22* TP.

 

I just dont want to get something I am going to regret the first round when I pay out cash!!!!

 

Most use will be from tee, and from fairway. Was going over my use patterns, and think that I would either lay up with the 5-iron or will choke the 17* for long par fours where the driver was a "naughty boy" :)

 

More thoughts???

The usual suspects...the Cleveland HALO hits like a bat. I wish you got the results you wanted. It's never let me down. If price is a concern, Tour Edge's Iron Woods (reg or tour) are also very solid, and even better a bargain.

i'm a big fan of the rescue dual tp (little offset so isn't a hook machine). i'm intrigued by the new slingshot hybrids, particularly the tour. would give it a look. i didn't care for the halo, just too much like a wood. i like the ldi which is very similar to the nike pro combo utility iron which i have this too.

 

you didn't say, buy i am guessing you are replacing a 3 iron. not knowing what your 4 iron loft is, its a little tough to say, but i would say a 20*, 21*, or 22* would be a good replacement. i use the 19*/18* to replace my 5 wood. i know the rescue dual comes in 21* so does the ldi. the pro combo comes in 20* or 22* and can be had real cheap on ebay. i had a 20* and found it much too long for my 3 iron and too close to my 18* pro combo utility iron and 19* 5 wood. if i were to replace my 3 iron (21*) i would go with the 22* model.

 

as for performance, the rescue dual is great. awesome off the tee, easy off the fairway and excellent from the rough and fairway bunkers. the pro combo (same with ldi) is again awesome from the tee and easy from the fairway. not as easy from the rough as the rescue dual, but much much easier than an iron. pretty good from the bunker. only difference i found between the pro combo and ldi was the ldi had a hollow sound a feel where the pro combo felt and sound more solid.

 

there are a number of other options out there.

Thanks for the feed back!!! You guys rule.

 

As for falling in love with your Nickent GJones, that's great!!! Just dont bring it to bed! Haha

 

I am replacing the 3 - iron with 21* of loft. I found that when my rescue didnt balloon, it was too long compared to a well struck 3-iron and too close to my 5-wood (17* - 1 inch shorter). I may look to the Airmuscle or LDI. But will hit the SS Tours, Nickent and TM Dual TP. Today, and unfortunately only on a simulator!!!
