I'm carrying a 19 degree Ping G5 with the NV85-S shaft in it.

 

The thing is fantastic when I put a reasonable swing behind it. :)

9.5* Callaway Rogue ST Max / MR Tensei Blue 55

15* TaylorMade SIM Ti / MR Diamana Limited FW 75

17.5* TaylorMade GAPR Hi / KBS Hybrid

21* Callaway Mavrik Max TC / MR Kuro Kage Black TiNi

5-GW Cobra Forged Tec X / KBS Tour Lite

52, 58* Ping Glide 4.0 / ZZ 115

Odyssey White Hot Sabertooth

well, i've changed my hybrid for his season. the rescue dual tp 19* was replaced by a nike slingshot tour 18*. so far so good. doesn't launch as high, which is good with the spring winds here. also 10 yards longer. great club. very compact head.

I was able to play with my 585H today.

 

Very solid , reminds me of the Callaway Heavenwood series, in feel and sound.

 

There were some opinions that the 585H had a very low ball flight, this was not true for me, i hit the 19* with a nice high penetrating ball flight.

 

Very workable both directions, and great in length.

 

I only made a couple swings with it today, but hope to add more to this review later. This will be my hybrid of choice this season when i use one.

I have 2 Slingshot Tour hybrids (21°/24°) which replaced my Cobra Bafflers.

 

 

 

I am looking for a new hybrid and considering the SlingShot tour in 21*, can you please compare this to the Cobra Baffler 20*, I had the Cobra and remember it as being a very solid club but did not like the design too much. Thanks.

Picked up the old Nickent 4+ hybrid, not the new DX series or whatever they call it. NV Stiff in it. Ridiculous how much fun this club is too hit!

Have dropped 3 and 4 iron from bag and am carrying 13* r7 FW, 16* Dual TP hybrid and 21.5* Nickent, then 5-wedges.

 

The Edwin Watts in this area have the older model Nickent's for 80 or 90 bucks with the steel shaft. I paid $120 for the 4+ with the NV shaft.

I have to echo what GoingPro said about Nickent. They make a fine hybrid club. I own the 17* with an Aldila NV75 stiff. This club is very workable, and no way would I put a 5-wood back in the bag now that the Nickent is in there. By the way, mine is the older version, 3DX.

 

One note to better players: Like most hybrids, the retail 3DX is a bit heel-weighted (draw biased). But four strips of lead tape on the toe side seems to have helped balance the club, and now I can hit a small fade with it when necessary. Well, not EVERY time, mind you, else I would quit my day job. Hah!

Nickent's 3DX DC Utility 17* with Fujikura Banzai stiff shaft. It's the only club in my bag that's truly safe from being replaced!

I've been playing the 19º Sonartec Md, for almost a month now and it has become the most secure club in my bag. Up until that point the Hybrid slot was the most shakey and included TM, Mizuno, and Callaway. I did not get along with any of these at all. I was interested in the FT-3 hybrid for a while, but now, zero interest. The Md plays extremely versatile, and will give you everything you put into it and more (still need to practice more of the applications--"how-to" found HERE). Trajectory is no problem, and as leftygolferuk pointed out the Md can be cut to produce a higher trajectory with softer landing, need be. This is the first hybrid I've played that is a better choice than a 2 iron (I put a lot of time at an irons-only range, so got to love my long irons).

I'm using the Bridgestone Airmuscle 19 degree. I have the Titleist 503H and I hated it. Sold it after 2 weeks. I replaced the Airmuscle NV85 stiff shaft with a NV85 X stiff shaft and it was a huge improvement. My only problem now is that I don't have a 240 yd club that I can hit high. The Airmuscle performs great but I hit it pretty low....like a 2 iron but further. I'm thinking about dropping my 3 iron and putting a V-steel 5 wood in the bag. As for the Airmuscle, it has nice soft feel because it's forged, has very little offset, and it's pretty forgiving. Probaby not as forgiving as some of the larger headed wood-like hybrids out there though.
