New Adams DHY “driving hybrid” spotted

Published

on

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!

    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.

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

    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.

SPOTTED: New Callaway Forged irons… Apex or Legacy?

Published

on

Photos of a new Callaway Forged iron popped up in our GolfWRX Forums, and our members are trying to figure out whether they’re going to be replacements for Apex Pro irons, or whether they’re an update on the Legacy series. They could also be X-Forged irons, but since Callaway recently came out with new X-Forged irons, that would be unlikely.

Here’s what GolfWRX Members are saying:

  • elwhippy: A new Legacy iron? Looks a bit Japanese shaped. 
  • mattTHEkatt: Like an X-Forged/Legacy Black mashup. They look powerful. 
  • DTown3011: …gotta be the next Apex!
  • J13: Pics look like a newer legacy black.
  • mgholda: Pics look like a newer legacy black.
  • TheMoneyShot: I thought Cally was going to phase out the Apex name after they released the MBs?
  • john443: A larger cavity in these then the X- Forged… competitor to the 750 and AP3 maybe? …or Legacy Black finally brought to retail…hallelujah. CF16 replacement???!
  • Equipto: These look very sharp, and like thumpers. I don’t care if they are a Legacy Black or Apex replacement, call them whatever… i’ll try them 
  • mrmikeac: Next gen Callaway Apex Legacy? Hmmmm…..
  • Brizam: The Legacy Black might be the best players cavity back ever made.  If they were to become available they’d move straight to the top of the list of clubs to buy for me. 
  • Jourdan M: This is the Apex Pro 

Here are photos of the new Callaway irons we spotted
