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.

Toulon Santa Monica: The inside scoop

Published

on

As many have already seen this week in the forums, we spotted a brand new model from Toulon: the Santa Monica.

There were a lot of finer details going on with this putter that got peoples ears up including

  • The one-piece design – no variable weight sole plate
  • A classic head shape with Toulon refinements
  • The finish & overall aesthetics

Thanks to a ton of positive feedback, we had to find out more.  So, we went right to the top and called up Sean Toulon to find out about this new model and what else might be coming in the near future.

Here’s what we know:

The Santa Monica, that was captured is part of a larger project that will be going all out when it comes to customization and “showing the world what we can do when it comes to design and manufacturing,” according to Toulon. This line of putters will not be available on the grand scale and instead will focus on individual pieces and prioritize the customer experience.

This new line from Toulon will also include new putters not yet seen, although we have one name so far: La Grange (shout out to Texas!), and it will also include different materials not currently found in the Toulon/Odyssey line. The focus will be 100 percent on boutique, different and just for you, said Toulon. The new line will center around exercising total creativity, and also have the potential for one-off and limited-number pieces.

We don’t have a timeline for when these will become available to the public, but when we do, we will be sure to let you know.

Forum Thread of the Day: “Viktor Hovland signing with Ping”

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day comes from Dave D and it surrounds Viktor Hovland’s future as a Ping staffer. There has been plenty of chatter on our forums after Dave D shared this post from @golfnation_’s Instagram account.

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.

  • cvhookem3: “Seems like he was hinting at that with his equipment changes at the US Open. Good for him. He should be a lot of fun to watch.”
  • bladehunter: “Figured. He had near a full ping bag anyway. Love this kid. I really predict great things. Loads of raw tools.”
  • ImagineThat: “I think we’ll be seeing a lot of Viktor Hovland in the future…enough where his name will no longer appear strange. He seems to really be an upbeat guy with a nice personality, and he has a nice friendly smile to go with it.”

Golf Digest’s E. Michael Johnson reported Hovland is now a Ping man, writing he “signed a multi-year deal with Ping to play a minimum of 11 clubs, including driver and putter, along with a Ping staff bag and logo on the hat.”
