I like my titleist 910 and I also hit the ping i15 which was pretty nice, I liked it better than the i20

Bobby jones hybrids are great and they are going out of business and they are unreal cheap so I'd give those a shot to at least try it

Last time I looked, Bobby Jones and Jesse Ortiz were at the 2012 PGA Show introducing all new models of equipment for 2012, that should be available at the end of the month. The new stuff looks good.

Now, they were putting the 2011 equipment on sale -- and it is still on sale at great pricing.

FWIW, the smaller heads on the Jones Workshop Hybrids worked for me in a shorter than standard length and in the higher lofts - 25 and 30.

The 2012 Hybrids have a larger profile and will give golfers more confidence. The Driver and Fairways are more like, in terms of evolution, his popular Tri-Metal Fairways and HipTi Drivers.

I still have and use the Cleveland HiBore.  Easy to hit.  High launch.  Very forgiving.  Travels the normal distance for the same iron.  If you want a little longer than the normal club I would recommend the original Adams Pro Prototype Hybrid.  They can be gotten cheap.

I had a set of the Jones hybrids and they looked great but I did not find them consistent.  I now use the Cobra Baffler Rail H, very easy to hit and flight very well.

Agree with that comment, I have a DST it's very forgiving and I've got no complaints about the distance. None of my clubs are very accurate, starting to wonder if it might even be me :D

One of the easiest hybrids to hit: i15 ... always when I pull it out, I wonder why I donīt play it more often. Very accurate and nice to hit, shot after shot. The 910h thatīs in my bag is also a very nice hybrid (better overall flight for me) , but when my swing is really off, I do miss the i15.

Older hybrid but I like this best of any I have tried:

1. Adams Idea Pro with Aldila VS Proto By You 80 gram shaft



IME, I will not consider any hybrid witha shaft less than 80 grams or a head that sets up closed , ymmv.

+1 on the Rail H, the old one, don't know about the new one yet. Also, the Adams A3 Boxer was a great "daily driver" type no-frills hybrid. Easy to hit long and straight. The stock PL Red was not bad at all.

+1 on the Cobra Rail H.  I've liked the Cobra bafflers so far.  I am undecided about the cobra t rail and I like the Rail H enough to not even test out the T Rail.

if you're looking for accuracy i strongly suggest giving a steel shaft a go in a hybrid that you like.
