Check out the two new hybrids we spotted on the range at the Arnold Palmer Invitation — the Adams new DHY or “Driving Hybrid” and Super 9031 Proto Hybrid.

The DHY is a new shape for Adams, combining the look of a driving iron with the bulge-and-roll face construction that is used on the company’s hybrids. The company also engineered a slot in the sole in the DHY that it has used on its hybrids, fairway woods and drivers to increase forgiveness and ball speed.

The Super 9031 Proto Hybrid is a slimmer version of the company’s Super S and Super LS Hybrids, with a narrower sole and more angular toe. It’s reminiscent of Adams’ Pro Black hybrids, but includes a slot in the sole and crown of the club that should boost forgiveness and distance.

According to Adams reps, Jeff Overton has been testing the DHY and Super 9031 Proto hybrids, preferring the DHY when he wants to hit low shots with more roll and the Super 9031 Proto hybrid when he wants to hit higher shots that land softer. We also spotted Charlie Beljan testing the Super 9031 Proto hybrid.

    Hit the 18 and 21… HOT. these are great. they are not ugly and severely offset like the majority of hybrids… they are more iron than hybrid. they are very svelte. don’t have to worry about hooking it. I hit the 18 DHY about 10 yards farther than my 18 Sonartech 5-wood. not going to give up my 5 wood though.

    Hit this at Golftown and wow – very hot off the face even when I wasn’t swinging that hard. That’s great knowing I don’t need to go after it to launch the ball, just put in a nice controlled swing and the club does the work for you.. The Matrix White Tie HX3 feels nice and balanced with this club.

    I’m probably going to replace my 3-iron with a 21* and kick my Fourteen HI610h out of the bag!

      Shot in the dark… do you still have that 610h laying around?

    The Adams DHY hybrid. This has been done before, but non-conforming as I recall. A hybrid with bulge and roll. Brilliant. Even better with minimum, FWD low offset or onset.

    I am not remotely interested in white or silver anything. Black looks confidant, intimidating and aggressive. White looks uninteresting, boring, non-plus, comfortable, unaccomplished and needy.

      yes; hybrid-iron, with bulge and roll, low offset, slightly longer shaft. I like the idea. Let’s see how it performs, rough 1st and then fairway. This could be my 4-ron, one club only. metrybill

    DHY club goes in my bag. A beauty. If I can’t play it I will just look at it sitting nicely.

    The DHY looks like a black version of the old Controller iron even down to the “Roll and Bulge”. It’s true, everything old is new again…

    i work at a golf store and my boss was telling me about some new adams driving hybrids that were smaller then the pro black… i guess these are it. i think he said they come out on april 1st for sale to the public

    Boy are these nice looking clubs! The M.O.I. of the DHY must be sky high with the huge tungsten heel and toe weights behind the face.
    The Proto looks like a more hybrid/less fairway look than the Super S. Looking forward to trying these when they become available. Kudos to Adam’s styling department on both these clubs.

    DHY… 21* and 24* please.

    I sure hope these are going to be released for the public to purchase at some later date.

    Uh, I want one of the DHY driving hybrids.

    I love this place.
    A redux of previous models with the channel on the bottom. They probably have the super hot faces of the XTD heads. Adams makes the best hybrids imo. I have the Peanut and Super XTD Hybrid in my bag.

Callaway Golf launches new titanium Jailbreak-powered Super Hybrid

Published

on

Callaway Super Hybrid

Callaway Golf aims to redefine what a hybrid can be with the introduction of the all-new, multi-material, titanium-powered Callaway Super Hybrid for 2020. Built to offer the distance, ball speed and forgiveness of a fairway wood, with the added benefit of being built into a hybrid chassis, the Callaway Super Hybrid is the designed for those golfers that want control without sacrificing distance.

Creating a hybrid that performs like a fairway wood takes some serious engineering, and in the case of the new Callaway Super Hybrid, it means pulling out all the stops with technology and packing it all into one finely tuned club.

Here’s everything the R&D team at Callaway has been able to accomplish with this hybrid design

2020 Callaway Super Hybrid: Details

High-Strength Titanium Face insert

The Titanium face insert of the Super Hybrid promotes greater ball speeds and ball speed consistency thanks to variable face thickness, according to the company. Adding in Callaway’s proven Jailbreak technology helps stiffen the total structure of the clubhead’s titanium body. This places, as Callaway says, more impact load on the Face Insert to push the limits of flex and ball speed retention.

Light Weight Carbon Crown

An all-new T2C Triaxial Carbon Crown has a tighter weave than other composite crowns used in the past which increases strength and saves weight versus a traditional hybrid’s steel crown. The weight savings are then redistributed within the head to lower the Center of Gravity, and raise MOI for consistent distance on mishits.

Full Titanium Body With Precise Tungsten Weighting

Using a titanium body (the crown not withstanding) allows Callaway engineers to place a large volume of tungsten into the heel and toe of each clubs to once again increased MOI and optimized ball flight.

Using the same Metal Injection Molded Tungsten Weighting technology seen in other Callaway clubs, including the Epic Star line, Callaway is able to place a very high volume Metal Injection Molded (MIM’ed) tungsten weight to optimize CG for launch and control. How much tungsten you might ask? 68 grams per head—that’s close to 30 percent of the average hybrid’s total head mass!

Tech Specs and Options

The Callaway Super Hybrid will be available in three loft options, all three of which will also be available in left-handed. The stock shaft is the popular Mitsubishi Chemical Tensei CK PRO Orange 80 Hybrid shaft, but like anything Callaway, it will also include a large amount of no-upcharge options for custom orders.

Callaway Super Hybrid Pricing and Availability

The Callaway Super Hybrid is now available for preorder with retail stock hitting shelves on November 1st.

MSRP: $319.99
