Hank , North Carolina.

5 handicap.

Wilson D100  3

I need to feel like I have the confidence to go over water or why even bother with a hybrid since a 3 or 4 iron usually goes straight even if it is a mishit.

Testers Wanted (4)

One of the most frequent complaints you hear from better players about hybrids, is that they are "hook machines" no matter what some players just can't keep them from going left-for right handed golfers.  While hybrids and their natural tendency to go left is a blessing for most high handicappers, it can be a big turnoff to the better player, and keeps them from putting a higher lofted club in their bag for those long approaches. 

The compact head and deep face design is the preferred shape for better players and helps with a penetrating flight.  To fine tune in your flight, the hybrids come with two adjustable weights a 5g and 20g weight that can be positioned for maxim fade or draw bias depending on your preference. 

Perhaps one of the most unique things about this line is that it comes in single lofts all the way from 16 to 22 degrees, so you can really choose the ideal loft for the gap you are looking to fill, as most companies offer them in 3 or 4 degree gaps.

Handicap:  8.9

Current Hybrid:  Ping G25 23 degree

The most important thing in a Hybrid is to hit a consistent shot from the fairway and the rough.  I struggle with that club.

Thanks!

I like all the people saying they want it to go "straight". Haven't they heard what Hogan said:

Quote

"You only hit a straight ball by accident. The ball is going to move right or left every time you hit it, so you had better make it go one way or the other."

It just needs to be consistent and controllable, not straight 😉 

Good Luck with your straight shots everybody ! lol
