First Name / State of Residence: Ken/Ontario Toronto Canada

Handicap: 5

Current Hybrid in Play: M6

What is the most important thing to you in a hybrid: It needs to be easy to hit and with a high ball flight. I prefer a penetrating ball flight so I still carry an MP37 3 iron but for those long shots in the par 5, i need help with getting the ball to stop on the green (dont we all)

Brian, Wichita, KS-Crestview Country Club

5.8 handicap

Taylormade M2 19 degrees

I need a hybrid for getting longer shots up in the air and forgiveness. Having tested multiple driving or utility irons, the forgiveness and height are severely lacking in those type of clubs with off center hits. On a par 5, going for the green when your tee shot is in the rough, makes it almost impossible not to hit some sort of extremely low shot with the utility irons. That's where my hybrid comes in huge for me. I also use it off the tee quite frequently on shorter par 4's and have plenty of work-ability with my current hybrid. I'd want the exact same thing in my next hybrid. Also, strongly in the market for a new hybrid.

1.4

no hybrid currently, I use P790 UDI

Looking for more consistency than my UDI with similar distance, but not too high of ball flight (i play in Nebraska, it's windy here!!!)

Mark / Colorado

Handicap = 7.8

Current Hybrid in Play = TaylorMade R-15/19°

What is the most important thing to you in a hybrid: that I get a consistent distance range, with good trajectory.  I don't need to hit it a mile, I just want it to go 225-235 off the deck and I want to be able to hit it higher or lower if needed and stop on a green. I also want to be able to swing freely without worrying about it hooking.

Name:  John/ Michigan

Handicap: 10

Current Hybrid:  Mizuno 3/4 

Most important thing to me for a Hybrid:  The ease of hitting it, feeling confident over the ball with this club in my hand,  fairly straight path and good ball flight trajectory.

Chuck in Texas

14 handicap

No current hybrid in play - not playing one right now but actively shopping and trying them. Looking at PING G410 most closely due to interest in lie angle flexibility.

What is the most important thing to you in a hybrid - consistency, ease of launch and approach angle/ability to stop it on a green.

What I want most from a hybrid: Consistency off the tee when I need to hit it 270-280 yds. I also want something I feel great about hitting as a recovery from bad drives on longer par 5's.
