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.

New 2020 Cleveland Launcher UHX irons feature a combination of hollow and cavity back irons

Published

on

Cleveland Golf has introduced Cleveland Launcher UHX irons, which incorporate hollow back long irons with cavity back short irons.

The unique approach looks to provide maximum distance and forgiveness in the long irons (4- 7-irons) through lower and deeper weighting in the hollow back construction while focusing on precision and control from the 8-iron to PW with a cavity back design in this addition to the 2020 Cleveland iron lineup.

The new additions also contain a high-strength, HT1770M variable steel face insert in each long iron. According to the company, improved mass distribution in the face insert is designed to deliver higher ball speeds and more distance on each shot.

Speaking on the new Launcher UHX irons, Director of Engineering, Research and Development at Cleveland, Dustin Brekke stated

“This combination of cavity back and utility irons into one set offers the perfect blend of distance and accuracy. A new variable face pattern delivers more distance due to hotter faces with better mass distribution.”

Both the hollow and cavity back irons feature a V-Shaped Sole which is designed to offer both improved speed retention and forgiveness through improved turf interaction. The company’s Tour Zip Grooves and enhanced Laser Milling aim to provide maximum spin on each Launcher UHX short iron.

Arriving in both left and right-handed options, Cleveland’s Launcher UHX Irons officially launch on October 4 and are priced at $799.99 MAP for a seven-piece steel set and $899.99 MAP for a seven-piece graphite set.

Cleveland Golf has unveiled new game improvement Cleveland Launcher HB Turbo irons which feature a new “thinner, hotter” turbocharged face insert designed for more speed and forgiveness.

Along with the turbocharged face insert, the new additions also contain a fully hollow construction. The design of the fully hollow construction allows for optimized sole weighting and bids to offer players both a higher launch and maximum forgiveness.

Speaking on the new Launcher HB Turbo Irons, Dustin Brekke, Director of Engineering, Research and Development at Cleveland stated

“These irons allow game improvement players the ability to get the ball into the air better than any iron on the market. Now with a thinner, hotter face, the Launcher HB Turbo Irons give you a half club more distance over the previous generation.”

The irons feature a redesigned HiBore Crown, which pushes the center of gravity low and deep within the base, a placement which is designed to allow golfers to launch their ball higher.

The clubs also contain progressive shaping throughout, as the brand seeks to provide players with a smooth transition by offering maximum forgiveness on long irons to optimal control on short irons.
