What are the best anti-left hybrids that carry 225 yards? – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been having a discussing over hybrids. WRXer ‘LowDime’ kicks off the thread saying:

“I am looking for suggestions for an anti-left 4-5 hybrid to replace 4-iron that I can carry 215-225.  I have yet to find a hybrid I can hit that does not go left. 13ish handicap.  I have a Sim 7-wood that either goes 220 or 250 so need something more consistent.”

And our members have been sharing their thoughts in our forum.

  • Sean124: “I like the TSR3 because you can move weight towards the toe. Also consider a shorter/heavier shaft that gets it playing closer to a long iron than a fairway wood.”
  • Yuck: “I have had issues with left on hybrids and tended to carry a 2 or three iron instead.  That said, the Callaway Alpha 815 18 degree.  (2 iron replacement), with a Tensi White has been great in avoiding the lefts.  A miss with it is actually a low fade for me, which is worlds better than a hook that keeps going left.  The best part, is you can probably find one dirt cheap, since they are circa 2015.”
  • aussieb: “The two hybrids that come to mind when looking to avoid a hook for the better player are the TSR3 and ST-Z 230 for the adjustability and internal weighting.  Nothing will stop a bad swing from snap hooking, but these both tested well for me.  Still put the Mizuno in the bag when I need a higher flighted ball for rock hard greens.”

    Anything with toe weight and flat lie adjustment can be made anti-left.

Accra launches new GX wood and hybrid shafts

Published

on

Accra Golf shafts have long been synonymous with fitting, and the new GX line of driver, fairway, and hybrid shafts continues that legacy.

Since 2004, Accra has been making high-end performance golf shafts that use the latest in materials and design philosophy. Their group of around 350 fitters are some of the best and most highly ranked in the world. While you might see other brands on professional tours more often, there are plenty of touring pros using Accra products and winning.

Accra’s new GX line of shafts is designed to offer a consistent and accurate shaft to a wide range of players. The GX line consists of 3 different shafts in driver, fairway, and hybrid designs.

The Accra GX shafts are designed for fitters to dial in golfers to the perfect shaft for their swing. Accra included a ton of technology into the GX line including their S3 profiling, DyMatch, and Constant Flex technology. DyMatch has been Accra’s quest to ensure that all shafts in a family feel and perform similar from driver to hybrid or iron shaft. Typically shafts get stiffer as they go up in weight, but Accra’s Constant Flex keeps the flex of the shafts consistent so fitters and golfers can dial in the weight that the golfer need without have to work around a stiffer or softer flex. Accra worked with Cool Clubs to build out its S3 Shaft Profiling system that not only allows a quick and easy EI profile of any shaft, it helps with quality control to ensure shafts come out of production exactly as they were designed.

Accra GX Red 300 Series

GX Red is lowest launching and spinning option in the GX line. Driver shafts have fewer options with just the 360 and 370 models that come in at 63 and 71 grams. The GX Red is made for faster swinging, or stronger, players who require a stiff (M4) or x-stiff (M5) shaft for their swing. Fairway and hybrid models are also on the higher weight side with the fairway clocking in at 80g and 90g for the hybrid. Accra designed this series with one of the stiffest tip sections of any Accra shaft in the current line, and while it is built to control launch and spin, the Red 300 Series will still offer that smooth feel.

Accra GX Green 100 Series

If your swing usually works best with mid-launch and spin, then the GX Green 200 series might be the right shaft for you. Offered in more weight and flex options, you can get a GX Green in 52 grams and all the way up to 70 grams in regular, stiff, and x-stiff flexes. GX Green will give the player a smooth feel and transition from the handle down to the tip section while still providing great stability and consistency. Accra also focused on the energy transfer of this shaft, and golfers can see some increased ball speed compared to other shafts.

Accra GX Blue 200 Series

While the GX Blue 100 Series is the highest launching and spinning option in the GX lineup, it will still give golfers the control and consistency they need. Starting off at 40g, the GX Blue series puts an emphasis on lighter weight to allow players to swing the club faster, promoting more distance. Accra touts the stability of the GX 140 Blue driver shaft by stating that some long driver competitors have put it in play to try and gain every MPH they can. Matching fairway and hybrid shafts are both on the lighter side at around 60g for the fairway and 65g for the hybrid depending on the flex.
