What equipment are you thinking about?

And that's one of the biggest issues I've had with hybrids for years. I've even thought about getting an adjustable 24* and lofting it down to see if that helped.

Why not a utility iron? Do you hit your long irons well?

Yup, I need something I can hit off the turf on par 5s or as a tee club for tighter par 4s. Plus with a mid 90's driver swing speed, I'm a bit worried about not being able to really elevate a driving iron.

+1 for the utility club. That should get rid of the hook bias.

There are some pretty forgiving ones like the Ping G400 Crossover and Cobra Utility.

Maybe wait for those new GAPR's to come out. The Mid or the High might be your golden ticket.

 

I believe that Callaway's Apex Pro hybrids had a neutral to fade bias if I remember correctly.

Y'know, I don't think I ever really thought about the Crossover. Hmmmmm....

You could try the Launcher HB 4 iron. Plays like an iron but gets up like a hybrid. No draw bias but I can't remember the loft on it. The other option I use is the Cobra single length 3H. Straightest club I have and if you've seen my swing that is saying something.

And, how much forgiveness do you need? Where is your miss on the club-face?

He reviewed the Wilson c300s and felt he needed more forgiveness.

PING G400's might do the trick too.

 

Good luck in finding your fit.

I know... honestly I think it's more mental than anything else at this point. 

 

I should just stick with choking up on my Heavenwood when needed, and keep the 4i in the bag for punchouts and tee shots.

If you hit your 7 iron straight you will hit the Cobra single length 3H straight.

First time in over a year I hit a G400 and had 160+ ball speed, over 108mph swing speed, carry average of over 275, and had a dispersion of 30 yards (NO HOOKS).... Very interesting. The KZG got beat today... That's a first. That TPT shaft is legit, once they find you the right one. Well, and I finally start to swing like my coach is teaching me to!!!!

Like another Vokey at 51 degrees to close wedge gap.

 

Putter shopped today but bsck was killing me after getting buddies broken down truck home. Pointless to buy after that. Assistsnt pro tonight showed me an Itsy Bitsy in excellent shape. Hit it well but will try agsin tomorrow. 70 bucks is what I think i can get it for. Really hoped the Sigma G woukd feel better for me than what it did.

 

Reshaft my hybrids to stiff or maybe xstiff.

 

Carry bsg for excercise.
