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.

Forum Thread of the Day: “3+ wedge users – the more, the merrier or certain wedge for certain shots?”

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day comes from BetterAtBingo who has asked WRXers the merits of having 3+ wedges in their bag. Our members discuss what they feel is the optimal wedge set-up and how they decide on a specific wedge for a particular shot.

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.

  • gioguy21: “I carry a 47* PW (it’s apex MB, or a ‘set’ PW); 52/56/60* MD4’s. When playing, i actually use them for specific purposes mostly: PW and 52 are predominantly for full shots or longer pitch shots off fairways, 56 is used for inside 100y, pitches, chips, around the green and bunker shots, 60 is used for around the green in higher grass, or near-side bunker shots (where you have to get it up quickly) or when a lob shot is needed with some higher spin. Hope this helps. I carried a three wedge system (PW, 52, 59) for the entire year, and always felt like I needed something between the 52 and 59; specifically with spinny pitches/chips and bunker shots.”
  • lenman73: “I am similar to gioguy. I have 44, 50, 56, 60. The 44 and 50 are full shots. The 56 and 60 are for close range. For whatever reason, in my area elevated greens are the norm, so unless you miss short in the front, playing the low ball isn’t the best decision. It’s not always from the front either. So since I started playing 30 years ago and have lived in the same area, the aerial assault has always been my go-to game plan near the greens. So for me, it causes no confusion; it is lie and length-dependent. Anything within 10 yards of the green is my 60 and adjust from there.”
  • gwelfgulfer: “I don’t think that gapping at the bottom of the bag really means much as that is more for full swings. Shots under 100y usually aren’t ‘stock yardage’ full swings (obviously depends on individual yardages) and are likely going to be club manipulated swings (ball position, choke down, 3/4-1/2, flighted). I roll with a three wedge set up unless I have my i20’s in the bag (I just like the UW enough to carry it) as most of these sets have 47-48 degree PW’s, so going 54/58 or 53/58 isn’t much of an issue. Most greenside play is done with either my 53/54 as I prefer to get the ball rolling quicker and just read it all like a put. Bunker play is with either club as situation dictates.”
  • Warrior42111: “PW (45) Full shots – and some bump and run. 50 Full shots – and some bump and run. 56* anything inside 100. 62* short siding and I love it out of a bunker, can full swing and not worry about overshooting”
