I was a big fan of the Ping G10s, still not sure why I ever decided to try something else... currently looking for 2 hybrids to bridge the gap from 3w(14.5*)  and my 5 iron..

Titleist 585.H is zero offset anti-hook hybrid with more of an iron look than Mimi fairway metal look. More of a true utility club that can be had for cheap and still holds up in my opinion

Old man who is getting back to competitive. Been out of the game for 20+ years. Played in college and some mini tours.

What is the right setup regarding woods and hybrids today for a guy who hits a higher ball than most and a clubhead speed of about 110?

It seems there is a myriad of options these days.

Thanks.

Had a great run with the Genex and 3DX Nickents back in the day. Also enjoyed Adams Idea Pro and A7, and absolutely nuked the silver XYD Ti hybrids but never felt good about the gaps in my bag with them. Mashie Plus were stupid easy.

I miss my Anser hybrids the most,  just a solid all-round performer. I really like the Jetspeed and SLDR S models as well. They are too long/light in stock form but the removable weight makes that an easy fix.

I've currently got the Titleist 910h in 19* and 24* and I'm thinking about making a switch.  The question is, to what?  Other hybrids?  5 wood?

Would love some input on different clubs and what's worked, or hasn't, for you.

If you are looking to replace the 910h, which is a fantastic hybrid, I would suggest the 915h.  It is everything the 910 is with more distance.  The Titleist hybrids are the only ones I have found that I do not hook off the planet.  I love my 915h 18* 2 hybrid.

Full disclosure: I don't play hybrids. 3w, T-MB 2 iron to MP-5 4 iron.

That said, I just hit the Epic 3 hybrid (PX HZRDUS) and that thing is a cannon with a nice flight. I hate the price, but it's the real deal

Cleveland Halo. The lofts are weaker than most current models, but I feel that they go closer to the irons they are supposed to replace. They are good out of the rough, and, for me, go very straight. I have a 3 (22%) and a 4 (25%).

Hybrids are one of those things where it's fun to go back in time. I personally view hybrid technology over the past ten year more as changes rather than advancements (I guess you could say that about a lot of equipment) but, hybrids really seem to stand the test of time differently and sometimes better than other clubs.

I really want to give a solid vote to the '08 Cobra Baffler Pro. You know the one. Yeah, the one with the yellow speeder shaft. I had one back in the day and grabbed one online early this season remembering it was cool. I seriously have never hit a hybrid as well and predictable as this. Seems to be fairly anit-left and that was one of the things guys raved about when it was hot. I really want the Epic hybrid since I love the fairway and driver so much but I really can't imagine hitting a hybrid any better than the baffler pro. For ~$30 I really encourage you guys to try this beast.

It was a 19* hybrid club.  The best way I can describe it is like hitting a 220 yard pitching wedge.

I should find one on Ebay and game it.

Easily the best hybrid I have ever hit.

I had been using a Taylormade Burner hybrid, but when I switched to Callaway Steelhead clubs, the hybrids were a club longer and really forgiving.

I still bag the Taylormade Rescue 09 TP hybrids.  Carry the 19 and 22 degree versions.  I have a 17 degree as well.  Great hybrid but I think it's the shaft in those that's so perfect for me.

Yeah, My 22 has been a constant in my bag for probably close to 10 years now. I have various other hybrids but my 22* (non TP, by the way) Rescue Mid is always  there. I even just got the Rescue Dual TP recently but even that just can't kick out the original.
