Any reviews of the GAPR mid? Seems like all the reviews focus on the differences between the GAPRs or say itís reminiscent of the Adams dhy. I held this club for the first time at the west Michigan golf show yesterday and it has piqued my interest. Iím in dire need of a club between my 3w and 4i and canít decide between hybrid/DI/5w. Maybe this is the perfect compromise? Whoís tested this club?

Im in the same boat you are in search of that club between 4i and 3w. Went to golf galaxy about a week ago and hit just about every driving iron/hybrid they had and the gapr lo blew me away. Hands down my favorite. Very forgiving and loved the ball flight. Am definately picking up one soon. The mid should be just as good with a little higher ball flight.

I've only tested these in simulators, but I've tried the Gapr Mid (21 loft) three times and always hit it well with perfect numbers. The feel is awesome and it just works.

If these weren't the ugliest clubs I had ever seen, I would already have one in my bag. (OMG that awful green sherbet accent color :swoon: ). The look, for now, is still a stumbling block.

I have also tried the Gapr Low and it's significantly less forgiving and doesn't feel as good.

I just picked up a mid with a recoil proto utility 110f5

Iíve liked the mid in testing but hated the stock shaft. Way to light I couldnít control it. I loved the UDI but Iím not playing multiple times a week to be able to consistently hit it well

Gut feel

I loved original recoil hybrid proto 105f5 except it had too much of a kick to it.

Read reviews saying it had the same profile except a stiffer tip. Also it compared exactly to dynamic gold in flight and feel, which is the iron shaft I play.

Hit it, didn't like it.

Not as good results as my M1 hybrids so stayed put. Others have loved it though so each to their own
