There are different types of golf clubs like hybrids, woods or irons. This kind of diversity give golfers opportunity to choose the right and the most convenient one for them in every situation. Golf player’s choice is totally up to the hit he or she is going to perform.
Hybrid is the youngest of golf clubs as long as it was invented at the beginning of 21st century. It is a mix of woods and irons. Hybrids are mostly used to replace long irons like 2s 3s and 4s. It’s because of hybrids’ characteristic structure. Hybrids have a club head similar to fairway woods but smaller which makes them more convenient and functional.
Another important feature of hybrid is its sole. There are different type of hybrid club soles like edge soles or dual-tiered soles. Edge soles provide a sharper intersection with the club face. Hybrids are good idea for recreational golfers because they are far easy to use also most of the average golfers choose hybrids because sometimes they struggle to get low-lofted clubs launched high and far enough to create more meaningful distances between longest fairway wood and longest traditional iron.
There are some high rated clubs you should check out if you choose to play with hybrids.
1) Callaway Rogue/ Rogue X
This club has two internal bars behind the face that join the crown and sole which makes the body stiff and concentrates all the energy directly to the club face. There is a larger version of Callaway Rogue and it’s Callaway Rogue X, they 11 options in lofts from 17 to 32 degrees. Players using the Callaway Rogue say that this club decreases necessary effort in getting the ball in the air. Also they say that it’s easier to frame the ball with Callaway Rogue X.
I don’t think hybrids can technically be considered as irons, but if they were, i’d say that Rogue X is on of the coolest irons for senior golfers.
2) Between the highest rated hybrids there is Tour Edge Women’s Hot Launch 2 Series. This kind of club is available as a set or individually. Club’s hollow body and thin face make easy to perform long distance shots. Women’s Hot Launch 2 is available for left-handed players too. Its reasonable price and solid production make the club more widespread and popular among female golfers.
3) Another popular hybrid with reasonable price is Srixon Z H85. This hybrid is for more experienced golfers, for the ones who appreciate full face grooves or the clean head design. Srixon Z H85’s shaft is stiff but it’s very playable from different lies and can be faded on command which is really very important feature for any golf player.
4) Next and one of the most useful hybrid is Cobra King F8. It has a graphite shaft and is designed so that it can be purchased with 3- 4- or 5- hybrid configurations. Cobra King has 455 stainless steel face which makes the club more flexible and give golfers opportunity to perform farther and faster shots.
5) Callaway Apex (2019)- just like Callaway Rogue it has two internal bars which provides more face flexing. Callaway Apex’s compact shape may make us think that it’s not likely to perform strong shots with this club but that’s not true. Apex has a high-strength steel face which increases flexibility over a larger area.
