Reason not to play multiple hybrids? – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing whether players should have a variety of hybrids in the bag. WRXer ‘Jetandollie’ kicks off the thread asking is there a reason not to play multiple hybrids and wonders whether we’ll get to a point where a 6-iron is the shortest iron in the bag for a player:

“Now that companies (Ping, PXG, Mizuno, Titleist) are making hybrids up to 28-34* with several shaft options is there a reason that the majority of us should not be playing them to as high a loft as we can find? 

All of the review videos and numbers always show that they go higher, land at a steeper descent angle and are significantly more forgiving and consistent than irons. 

I get that the main point of rebuttal is too high of a ball flight and playing in a windy location, but over the course of 60-80 rounds per year (1500-2000 long/midiron shots) will the shots saved from the forgiveness and higher launch/steeper decent not outweigh the iron mishits or shots lost in the wind? 

Will we get to the point with the way tech in clubs is progressing that the norm will be hybrids to the 6 or 7 iron in most bags?”

And our members have been weighing in on the topic in our forums.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • MPAndreassi: “Cleveland has been trying to do this for at least a decade now. I don’t think it’ll ever catch on.”
  • cpang05: “Price. For the average guy I see at the muni, starting with a 4H, 5H, then 6i seems really popular. But those hybrids are half the cost of a full set of irons.”
  • Clubhoe: “Workability. Will continue for as long as I’m able to hit them. Will go to utilities next, then hybrids after that.”
  • Mattm97: “I hit my irons better than hybrid. I think it depends on the person, their game and usage. I have a 3H, and I honestly don’t use it a ton except for certain situations.”

SIM Max vs SIM2 Max – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been comparing and contrasting the original SIM Max with the latest SIM2 Max driver. WRXer “Spaceman1976” is torn between the two and reaches out to fellow members saying

“If anyone can offer their experiences with both drivers, I would greatly appreciate your feedback. I do see more SIM2 drivers for sale on the board than SIM drivers.”

And WRXers have been sharing their thoughts in our forum.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • Yoshimonster: “Very minor difference between them. Go with Max.”
  • philleeeep: “I thought there was a big difference in sound. Hard to explain, but I personally preferred the SIM Max.”
  • tleader: “Love my SIM Max. Very little (if any) difference to “upgrade” to the SIM2 Max if fitted correctly.”
  • Kale_m: “Sim2 sounds and feels softer. Still super hot but just a different sound and feel. I personally like it. Sim2 is more neutral flight to me. I am playing it at a lower loft and in the upright setting. Dead straight bombs. Sim was much more fade biased, even when in the upright setting.”
