  • Mike, Missouri
  • TaylorMade M1 (2016) 3 hybrid (19*) - Project X HZRDUS Black 85 6.0
  • Fitting was based off the driver fitting (same family of shaft and same stiffness profile)
  • I fight a hook and ballooning on windy days. On typical days I love the ability to hit knockdown shots with my hybrid as my fairway finder. Great club to use in match play.

Mike D - Ohio


Mizuno JPX-EZ 3, 4 Hybrids with stock Fujikura shafts. Sometimes add the 2 and 5 hybrids depending on course, also with stock Fujikura shafts. These shafts and heads seem to fit me perfectly. Hybrid lofts are 2 = 16, 3 = 19, 4 = 22, 5 = 25.


Hybrid shafts were not custom fit.


Hybrid game strength is production of pure distance.


Hybrid game weakness is aim, especially on sidehill or difficult lies.

Mitchell Waldt, Ontario

Wilson tour v4 utility 18 degree with kuro Kage 90 stiff

Not custom fit

Strengths: height control, shot shaping

Weaknesses: consistency and disperison issues

I was going to buy a steel shaft for it when i have the chance to. I find my graphite shaft to be to inconsistent for a utility iron.

- Harrison - Woodbridge, VA


- Titleist 915H 18 degree Mitsubishi Diamana D+90 (stiff) and Callaway 815 Alpha 23 degree with Fujikura Motore Speeder 665 (Stiff)


- I've been fit for a Driver, but nothing else.


- Strength: Long and decently consistent with hybrids / Weakness: Mishit is a slice and very low. Can't attack the ball as much as I would want to just due to timing.


Would love to be a part of this opportunity as I am putting my Assistant Golf Professional through a couple of club work tests. If not, good luck to the lucky few!  :D

FW: 915F 3 Wood with Diamana White S+ Blue 70 (stiff)

Hybrid: 915H 18 with Diamana S+ Blue 90 (stiff)

Driving Iron: Callaway Apex Utility 18 degree with UST Mamiya Recoil (x-stiff)

Alex Marshall- Seattle, WA. 


Aeroburner 3 Hybrid, Matrix Speed RUL-Z 70 shaft, 19 degrees of loft. 


It is not custom fit.


I feel like my hybrid game has always been strong. I can really bomb it when I need to, but with the ability to pound it, I can loose control often. My main miss with my hybrid is to the left.

Darren from Singapore


Bridgestone JGR 4H 21 deg with Tour AD J16-11W Reg stock JDM


Not custom fitted. Currently the shaft is too soft for me as my SS for driver has increased to about 95mph.


Due to the soft shaft, I have a hard time controlling the club. Dispersion is all over the place and if I hit it well, the ball flight seems

too high. Probably due to the high spin rate.

Irons: Miura PP9003 KBS Tour 90 R 5-P

Wedges: Miura New Wedge Series 51 Deg, Cobra Tour Trusty 56 Deg

Driver: Bridgestone JGR 10.5 with Tour AD J16-11W Reg stock JDM

3 Wood: Bridgestone JGR 3W with Tour AD J16-11W Stiff Reg stock JDM

Hybrid: Bridgestone JGR 4H with Tour AD J16-11W Reg stock JDM

Putter: Ping Sigma G Kinloch C 

Right handed, lives in Singapore

Playing in the mid 90s and trying my best to break 90 consistently.

816 H2 set to 20 - Oban Devotion 04 tipped


Srixon U65 23

Stock Miyazaki stiff


For once I really don't see a weakness. Both offer multiple shots. Hit the titleist high and long, and use the srixon as a go to bullet off narrow tee shots. The devolution was for a while ago and may be a tad too soft.

- Jarrod from Denver, CO

- Titleist 913H 19 degree with Aldila RIP Phenom 80 

- No

- I have taken this club in and out of my bag over the last few years.  I tend to leave it a bit right which when you're intending to draw the ball, right puts you in trouble.  I hit it pretty solid other than that.

- Your first name & home state/province - Carl-Johan, Stockholm -Sweden.

- Your current hybrid and shaft combo, with lofts - Taylormade M1 2017 with kuro kage silver 80s and mizuno jpx 900 with fujikura xlr8 both in 19*

- Hybrid/shaft custom fit? - Custom fit years ago but less shafts availble for fitting in Sweden.

- Strengths/weakness of your hybrid game - Strength is distance and distance control. Weakness is controling the shape and often hook or slice when trying to play a fade.


Play kbs tour 130x in mizuno irons after the test with swing DNA and Love the feel.

The greatest trick I ever pulled was convincing the world I am a good golfer
