Irons fitting, transfer to hybrid?

Recommended Posts

Hello, new to the site. Looking for some thought before I dive into some new hybrids. Not sure this is the right area to post my question. 

I was fitted for some new Callaway Mavrik's last year at one of their demo days. I love them, my first custom set. I'm always looking for something new, and my hybrids are showing some wear. Callaway is having a pretty good sale on some pre-owned clubs this week and I'm looking to make a purchase. Obviously I can't get custom, as these are rack clubs, but I can add length (if needed). Can I or should I use the added length I received in my irons fitting? I can't get the lie, but just curious about the length. My current hybrids are rack and a stiff shaft which I no longer need (sad). I hit them fairly well. 

I don't like my local golf shop, I just use them to waste their time by hitting clubs. Their fitting leaves much to be desired, but these are rack clubs for sale so I'm mainly curious about the length. I tried calling Callaway but there was a lengthy wait time. Thoughts? Sorry if this sounds confusing. Thanks

The answer is maybe.   The purpose of each club is to hit a particular distance and unless you hit them you don't know how far you will hit that individual club.  If your irons are longer than standard, then start with that much longer in the hybrids;  you can always change the length after purchase.  CPO has sales frequently so you can shop and look for a configuration that works for you.

Thanks. I've bought a few clubs off CPO in the past, but it's often hit and miss with their supply. The clubs I want are actually in stock and 40% off. Haven't seen it that good in some time. I may take the dive w/ the added length.

My Irons are 1/2 inch longer than standard but my woods and hybrids are all standard length. When working for a golf retailer I can not remember ever ordering hybrids longer than standard, and when I had a fitting for my hybrid recently nothing was mentioned about the length

Changing length is relatively easy and inexpensive, but will almost certainly require new grips at the same time.  I had a 3 wood extended a few weeks ago and the extra cost was around the price of a ProV1.
