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.

Spotted: SuperStroke Pistol Lock 1.0 & 2.0 grips

Published

on

SuperStroke’s Pistol series is one of its more popular models with an oversized — but still traditional — shape that fits in the hands comfortably.

This week, we spotted a new grip on the practice green at the Cognizant Classic with the “Pistol” name but a little different shape. The traditional pistol shape flares out into the palm on the upper hand and usually has a flat top for your thumb to rest easily. The new grips feature two sizes at the moment, the 1.0 and 2.0, with the latter looking significantly larger.

This new Pistol Lock grip looks to have a similar flat top and flared-out back in the upper hand like the original. The taper to the upper hand looks to start further down the shaft and has a more pronounced shape at the top of the grip. The lower-hand section also might look to have a touch more taper to it, but sometimes these shapes are hard to tell from just photos. Here are the new Pistol Lock grips next to the current Pistol.
