Forum Thread of the Day: “Old or new, what are the best hybrids?”

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day comes from turfantim, who asks fellow GolfWRX members for their opinion on what they feel are the best hybrid clubs out there, whether they be a newer release or not. As always, our members display a diverse taste, with a mix of modern and older models getting a mention.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • Striker Ace: “Nike covert 2.0. I think I paid $79.”
  • Backsidefloater: “Recently purchased a used Callaway apex hybrid which seems to go straight compared to my older F7 which seemed to look closed at address.”
  • jah7838: “Adams Super 9031 for me.  It’s the longest-tenured club in my bag, and I don’t know if I’ll ever get rid of it.  I’m trying different loft combinations for my hybrids, so it’s currently out of the bag, but it might not be for long.”
  • mattwood: “Callaway Razr X Tour hybrid 18* has always been point and shoot for me.  I really like the head profile as it has a tapered end and is less bulky looking like some other hybrids.  It also has a very neutral setup so draws and fades are both possible, and it is very long.”

    Adams LS 19 degree – my 5 wood replacement. Launches high with a 220-225 carry. Callaway Apex 23 degree – 4 iron replacement. 200 carry, straight and penetrating. Looks square at address while most hybrids look closed. Also have a Adams Pro 23 degree in the closet – but I like the Apex more off the grass.

    Tour Edge Exotics Cb Pro U is the best hybrid I’ve ever owned. Just bought a second to keep as a back up.

    Current design hybrids are just a spin-off of The Perfect Club promoted by Peter Kessler on the Golf Channel many years ago. Remember? Everybody laughed but now they are the normal hackers clubs… upright lie and shorter shafts.

Asics Gel Course Duo Boa

Srixon/Cleveland Golf/XXIO in partnership with Asics has unveiled two brand-new golf shoe models: the Gel-Course Glide and Gel-Course Duo Boa.

The new additions from Asics are built with inspiration from the brand’s running shoes and aim to deliver maximum comfort and flexibility while providing ultimate traction and stability.

The Gel-Course Duo Boa model features the Boa lacing system for fast, precise fitting through a quick adjusting dial to tighten or loosen the lacing. The shoes are fully waterproof and contain a traction sole pattern with seven spikes.

The Gel-Course Glide shoe is an alternative spikeless version with standard laces designed to provide golfers with versatility on and off the course.

Asics Gel Course Glide

Both the Gel-Course Glide and Gel-Course Duo Boa feature an air mesh which aims to offer excellent flexibility during the swing and while walking the golf course. The company’s FlyteFoam technology is designed to provide lightweight shock absorption and exceptional durability in each shoe.

Speaking on the new golf shoes, Mike Powell, President of Sales and Marketing at Srixon/Cleveland Golf/XXIO, stated

“I’m excited to introduce ASICS golf footwear into the U.S. golf market with the Gel-Course Glide and Gel Course Duo Boa models. Asics is a huge global sports brand and widely recognized as the leader in performance footwear.

They have a rich heritage of innovation and product quality and align with our values as a company. These two models will appeal to golfers that enjoy an active and healthy outdoor lifestyle and love the performance and comfort that Asics is famous for.”

According to the company, the spikes are placed precisely to provide maximum stability and traction while walking the course through an FG traction sole pattern, while the Asics Rearfoot GEL brand technology provides cushioning which aims to reduce impact and increases shock absorption. The shoes also contain Toe and Lateral rubber wraps which look to help players maintain balance throughout the golf swing

Both new additions also include an air mesh at vamp with an integrated quarter panel designed for a supportive fit, with an internal molded heel counter in a bid to offer optimal foot support. The shoes contain additional ankle padding which looks to help create a custom fit that adapts to every move

The Gel-Course Duo Boa model MSRP for $179.99 and are offered in men’s Sizes 6-12, and 13. The shoe comes in three different color codes – Black/Gunmetal, White/Peacoat, and Peacoat/Pure Silver.

The Gel-Course Glide shoes MSRP for $129.99 and are offered in men’s (6-12, 13) and women’s (6-10) sizes.
