7.4

Nickent 17* and 20*

The shots I hit with hybrids have to be completely predictable.  100% confidence is what I'm looking for to hit that mid launch penetrating shot.

Had a Tour Edge gap wedge in the bag until my son stole it.  Recall hitting hybrids in a sim a while back and found them very easy to hit and make great contact.

Kevin K / Michigan

Handicap: 14.6

Currently do not play a hybrid. Have been wanting to buy some for years to replace my long irons in the 185-210 yardage groups.

A hybrid for me needs to have ease of hitting out of the rough or uneven lies and feel like an iron at address and less like a fairway metal.

15 Handicap

Sub 70 3 hybrid

Versatility - good off the tee, rough, fairway, long fairway bunker, punch type shots

Noticed you currently play the sub 70 hybrid. How do you like it? Did you by chance also try their utility driving iron type club? I have been con considering picking one up. 


Driver: :taylormade-small: M5 9.5* head set to 8* loft 3*open, weights set slightly lower Launch and fade bias
3 wood: :taylormade-small: M1 13.5* Head set open w/ Fade bias weights. 
Irons: :ping-small: I-Blades PW-3i, 2* up standard length.
Wedges: :ping-small:Glide 1.0 TS 60*, :ping-small: Glide 2.0 56 ES, :titelist-small:Vokey 52* 
Putter: :ping-small: Sigma G Kushin .

Don't actually currently have a hybrid in the bag. Always hesitant to put one in, just never pulled the trigger. I've hit my fair share of my friends hybrids.  Would love to test one for myself rather than just the one off though! 😃

I'd say what I'd look for in a hybrid is distance and workability. If i find one i like, could make some 2020 adjustments the bag for sure

Handicap - 2 (in comps), for fun +2.  First win ever with Tour Edge already in the bag.

Current Hybrid in Play - Taylormade Rescue Mid 2002 (Time to Update!)

What is the most important thing to you in a hybrid - The ability to shape the same type of shot from the fairway and off the tee with a similar window.Some are easier to turn over off the tee. And dont offer the same feel off the short grass.

I'm working on a WITB review of my CBX Tour Blades I just got from Tour Edge 3-Pw and they are without question the absolutely most forgiving blade on the market with tremendous turf interaction.

Thanks for the opp.

I'd play one of these for sure. I consider myself a hybrid specialist with a picky list of requirements for their play. I've also bagged TE stuff and have a good opinion of their equipment.

A neutral ball flight that lands softly. I naturally draw the ball and hate hooking my hybrid but I have to setup for a draw since I can't hit the thing straight to save my life.

I look for consistency and reliability from a hybrid.  Not so much distance but versatility between my longest iron and fairway metal.

Handicap 7

Current hybrid in play: none - I have a 5w that is OLD and is about the same size 🙂

Most important thing for me in a hybrid - NO LEFTS (to your original post) and strokes gained. What can this club do that choking down on a 5w or muscling a 4 iron can't?

finally! I think you might be the only other person on here who mentioned the possible benefit of how a hybrid plays chocking down relative to a wood!
