Joe, Tampa, FL

 

Mizuno FLI-hi 3, stock degree, nippon NS 1150 stiff, 1 inch long and 1 degree up

Ping G 22 degree (4 hybrid) , standard stiff shaft 1/2 inch long

 

Mizuno custom fit

Ping not, just ordered long, probably should have it bent too.

 

The Mizuno is extremely straight, plus I can work it either way.

The Ping is extremely easy to hit and I can adjust distance easily.

The weakness with the ping is I cannot move it right and fight the dreaded hybrid hook. I always have to play it right usually over water.

 

I would love to try a different shaft in each. In the ping to see if it helps the hook and the Mizuno to see the difference between the graphite and steel.

 

I would think the 75g stiff would be about right.

Driver: Callaway Epic Subzero 9Fujikura Pro Green 62g stiff, TaylorMade Rocketballz Stage 2 9.5o stiff

3 wood: TaylorMade Aeroburner 15o stiff

Mizuno 3 FliHi - Nippon NS Pro 1150 stiff + 1/2"

Ping G Hybrid 4 - 22o stiff + 1/2"

Mizuno JPX-EZ Forged 5-PW, Nippon NS Pro 1150 + 1" + 1o up

Cleveland 52o, 56o, 60o 588, +1" 

TaylorMade Ghost mallet, SuperStroke 5.0

Sam, Wi

Rocketballz 4 hybrid 23°

Regular flex (fitted for x-stiff)

Hybrid strengths- my hybrid is my go to club if there's a tight fairway I need to hit and put it the exact spot and shape I want it. Its the one club I've been able to hit great throughout the swing changes I've made. The shaft I play is not stiff enough and I'd love to give an in depth review of the latest the golf industry has to offer. I play my hybrid strictly by feel/feedback and control.

My weaknesses with my hybrid is that the shaft is too whippy for me so when I misshit a shot the ball will spray all over. And now that my swing speed is developing into a very powerful swing I can't get the consistency I'd like. A new shaft is the fix for that.

Good luck to all MGS'ers

Tucker, MS

Titleist 915Hd 17.5 and 20.5

KBS Tour 120

Wasn't custom fit for hybrids, but switched to steel shafts to improve accuracy.

Strength: accuracy, no more misses left.

Weakness: flight can be too low if I'm not striking the ball well.

Jakob, Indiana

Nike VR with stock Stiff flex shafts

Prefer it to be about 41in long, stiff flex, to keep around the same length with 3 wood (42) and driver (43.75)

Strengths- am able to hit a high ball and a low ball on command, can work a hybrid both ways, draw and fade

Weaknesses-club is too light which causes a pull hook because I was not fitted properly for shaft/club. Recently took out of my bag for high school and summer season so I need a great shaft and it would work perfectly.

John, Missouri

2017 M1 3 Hybrid (19 degrees) Project X HZRDUS Black 6.5 (X flex)

Yes, my hybrid was custom fit.

Strengths are my ball striking ability and consistency, weaknesses are being able to flight the ball down and that I have a tendency to over draw the ball on my misses.
