Low lofted hybrids. To me....16-19˚ Hybrids are harder to hit straight than a fairway metal.

Dude, have ya thought about a FM in that loft range or a little higher profile hybrid? Adams has some nice hybrids outside of their pro line and the a12 that are much more forgiving than the lower profile hybrids.

A 15-18* hybrid for many is just as difficult to hit as a 2-3i. I mean, a nice 4FM will give ya more metal(confidence) and I don't think that your accuracy will suffer that much. I mean, how tight are any of us gonna lay any club from 205-220 yds.

Ya want it fairly straight & with some trajectory.

Just a thought :)

For me personally, the longer the club, the more I struggle.

The driver I am working hard on, and can hit it very nicely at the range, but on-course the results are different. I have a 4W that I haven't hit in months, not even at the range, because it is just no fun to see the ball go all over the place. And I don't feel the 4W will add too much value to my game right now, even if I could hit it lights out, I would most likely only hit it 3 times a round.

As for the long irons, I have a solution for now in the Rocketbladez 4i, but before that club, I didn't really go near a 3i. 4i I would occasionally hit.

Sure the putter might cost one some strokes, but I am not scared of hitting my putter. But it is definitely the club that can affect your psyche the most!
In my Clicgear B3 cart bag on my Clicgear 3.0 pushcart:
Rocketballz 10.5* stock stiff shaft
Adams Idea A3 Boxer 19*
TMag Rocketbladez 4i-6i
Mizuno MP53 7i-PW
Mizuno MP-R12 52*, MP-T11 56*, MP-T10 60*
Some old Odyssey putter (Don't laugh, it gets the ball in the hole nicely)
Bridgestone E6

No-one will ever have golf under his thumb. No round ever will be so good it could not have been better. Perhaps this is why golf is the greatest of games. You are not playing a human adversary; you are playing a game. You are playing old man par.

For me it's the driver and 3wd. I'm still working on the driver but I can't, for some reason, hit the 3wd off the deck with any consistency.

I might replace it with a Cayman Power Play 3wd that's as easy to hit as a 5wd and see how I go.

In the bag:

Driver: Ping G20 12* Ping TFC 169 D R flex
21° Malty KE4 HDI Hybrid FST 90 R flex
23° Malty KE4 HDI Hybrid FST 90 R flex
25° Malty KE4 HDI Hybrid FST 90 R flex
Irons: Maltby DBM Forged 6-9 FST 90 R flex
Wedges: Eidolon 48°, 52°, 56° Precision S flex
Putter: Yes! Tracy
Bag: Sun Mountain C-130
Balls: B330-RXS

 

Throw me another ball, will ya?

Until the Rocketbladez I would have said long irons, but these things are stupid easy to hit. The 3 and 4 irons of my old set look brand new, from lack of use. I had more confidence in trying to play a high cut with a 18* hybrid, than hitting a 3 or 4. I must be in a small group with the 3W; I love mine. The only struggle I've ever had with the 3W is knowing when NOT to play it; I usually get stupid and try to reach a green from 250 in the rough and hack it out 130yds.

I started the topic about gaming super lob wedges and a lot of you said that they are a difficult club to use. So this question is somewhat related. In your opinion, what is the hardest club to hit or become proficient with? This is based off of your experience and opinion and not generalizing what it would be for others.

For me, I think a 3 wood or any fairway wood for that matter is really hard to hit. I can't hit it off the deck or off the tee yet I can hit a 2 iron just fine, go figure.

Generally speaking, the hardest club to hit is the one I have to use to make the next shot! (that is probably just me though!)
Today, I will do what others will not so that...

Tomorrow, I will do what others can not

Ya know, as I'm lookin at this and thinking bout it, it's like why the hell do I have the Spoon in my bag?


My friend has a Tour Spoon with a Diamana 80 gram shaft in it, really cool looking club but that thing scares the crap out of me. I have no idea how you could get it off the ground.

Most any three woods made in the last 5 years off of a tight bent grass fairway... Wow! They're the reason I've been playing a 16* hybrid the last five years?
