Weakness with most hybrids is they fly too high and spin too much. Strength, accuracy and control, distance with the right club.

I hit my hybrid consistently. It is a go to shot on tight par 5s.

I'm Steve from Arizona

I'm currently playing Adams A7 Pro Hybrids with UST Axivcore Black Stiff Shafts.  I use 19 Degree and a 23 Degree  Hybrids.

They were not custom fit fit with proper shafts, but are 2 Degrees Flat.

If I am swinging solidly I do hit them High and straight, but if I'm a little off I do get a pulled shot.  As I have been custom fit by KBS with Tour 90 Stiffs, Soft Stepped 1, I believe I'll probably opt for the R+'s.

Lee, Colorado

Adams Idea a12; 17*, 21* with MRC Kuro Kage 80hy S shafts.

Sort of; fitted myself after extensive testing. Have built my own clubs for 11 years.

Strengths include consistent face contact, good distance and trajectory control. Primary weakness is swing tempo which occasionally produces big blocks right or hard left hooks.

Ok,  this sounds like something I would like to try.  Previously gamed a Titleist 585h 21* with a Aldila NV 85g shaft that I was able to hit high and land soft.  Went with lower weighted shafts since I do better with lighter shafts in my driver but I am thinking that I need to get a shaft that is a little bit heavier more like the Aldila.

 

 

- Chris from Virginia

- Titleist 915h 21*  Diamana Blue 70gr

  Titleist 816h1 19* turned down to 18*  Diamana Blue 70gr

- Not custom fit

- Strength - ability to work the ball and hitting hybrids vs. fairway woods

  Weakness - consistent height.  Some shots are a nice high trajectory while others are low.  Prefer the higher ball flight.
