Looking at getting my junior an OEM hybrid. What is everyone using? I'm thinking of a Callaway OS ladies due to the adjustable shaft or a Ping G series as thats what she tends to lean toward I just don't like costs of re-shafting. That can add up quick. Any feedback to what hybrid your junior uses. Thanks everyone.

Titleist 816 H1 in 23 and 27 degrees with a Diamana R flex shaft. They fill the gap between his 3w and 5 iron.

Are they using womenís length clubs? If they are have them hit a bunch and see what they like .  Womenís length is only a inch shorter so  they can at least hit a couple of them to see how it works for them.

If your looking for used clubs check out cobra hybrids there pretty good.

What about the difference between OEM, USKG UL hybrid, and USKG TS hybrids?  Any noticeable difference in distance with lower swing speeds?

As you know, Iíve been piddlng around for fairway And hybrid options as well.  With younger kids like your son and mine, we donít have the luxury to go to the store and demi different clubs,since they (most all) donít stock appropriate sizes shafts for the younger kids.  I was almost settled on the cobra biocells (adjustable lofts), they can be found at a great price, but then read that they are a bit heavier because of the adjustable hosel , etc.  At the young ages, every ounce seems to matter.  Anyway, I couldnít find any reliable info on headweights for FW and Hyb for the options we considered.  He is doing well with his new XR16/Flynn  driver, so leaning towards just matching up the same with FW and Hyb.

The OEM clubs generally will go a lot further if there generating enough club head speed. The UL clubs are really good for kids just starting out but they will never get distance out of them. The TS are good for clubs for the kids who start to make contact and become more competitive.

I see a lot people talk about OEM clubs and they make sense if there is enough club head speed being generated.  The truth is for 90% of the young kids out there OEM doesn't make sense.  The 10% that needs them it's pretty evident that it makes sense because their club head speed is pretty fast.

My son has a M2 3h with a ladies shaft, however the club is significantly heavier than the same model and shaft 5w he uses.  So we've ditched it.  In search of a hybrid as well that will offer similar swing weight, and overall weight.
Taylor Made R15
Ping G25
Titleist T-MB
Titleist 716 CB
Titleist Vokey SM6
Evnroll ER2

M1/M3 since you can change settings and shaft.
