Do these clubs spin enough to hold a green?  I know the drivers in these lines are all low spin, but it seems to me we need some spin in our hybrids to keep the ball on the green. I love the sldr hybrid and hit it great on the monitors but just looking for opinions of guys who have used it the course.

Thanks all.

I've been playing with one for maybe a month now, after trying a lot of hybrids at a local place that has an outdoor demo range.

The sldr is pretty solid.  Feels pretty good and pretty tight dispersion.  It's forgiving on all but the worst swings.

I'm a high ball hitter- so the sldr appealed to me because it doesn't quite climb as high with the reduced spin.  I think lofting is important - I had played an 18* previously (the last two years) and a *17 before that (the two years before that).  I'm now working with the 19* TP.

It's sort of the best of both worlds.  I get a little run in the fairway, nothing crazy, and it lands soft and holds on the greens.  

The hybrid doesn't have the same weight positioning system as the driver, so it's by no means a spin killer.  But, the pocket insert deal seems to a bit.  

The whole package works, and feels great.  

Fine club-
