PostSubject: What are the lofts of your hybrids?   Mon Sep 21, 2009 8:38 pm

Just curious, folks: if you do carry hybrids, what loft(s) are they?

I'm currently using a 20.5˚ Launcher and a 25˚ TM Burner Rescue. I don't use the 25˚ too much because I don't like the TM and I was wondering whether it made sense to pick up a 23˚ or 26˚ Launcher hybrid instead?

Any thoughts?

I carry 2 hybrids, both TM 07 Burners - 19 & 22 deg, with Graman #5 80 gm shafts, stiff flex.

So far only 1 other hybrid felt better than my current ones, and that was Quinike's Baffler Pro, stock stiff shaft. Club head was even smaller than the TM hybrids, but impact felt really solid. I may consider changing to that..... ISS (itchy backside syndrome) again. Laughing

I must be the oddball....started the game with the same hybrid and till now...same hybrid....no technology embracing improvement....

I carry CPR 18 and 21 deg... this is supposedly (at least on paper) to carry 170m and 150m.........

Titleist 909H 19*, my 3 iron replacement.
This replaced my nike CPR 18* which i was using for quite a few years. Titleist slightly less forgiving, but feel on impact is excellent, almost orgasmic hahaha.

Reason to get a hybrid is to plug your distance gaps, so get whatever that will help your game.

Techno - do you have problems hitting your 4 and 5 iron? If not, no reason to get such a high lofted hybrid.

Actually, I don't have a problem hitting my 4i/5i (well, on most days anyway). I guess the 25˚/26˚ is excessive. Appreciate the feedback, SP Smile

I carry a TM Draw 19* to carry 180m. Seldom use in the course.
I like to use my 5 wood better.
Don't know why, It tops every time I try. Therefore I lose confident.
Only when the ball gets trap into a bad rough and I need distance, I try using again.

I agree that the stock 20.5˚ Launcher feels a little light but I play it reasonably well. Don't wanna change anything about it.... may spoil the chi Wink

21 degree - Callaway X with Crossfire - 190m
26 degree - Cleveland Launcher with Crossfire - 170m

the 21 degree is my saviour club and the 26 degree is the par maker for the long holes or the par 3s.

Jason...forget about the chi in your launcher, you got to try the Xfire to get some Boomz into your hybrid.

I think I'll pick up a 23/26˚ Launcher and get the shaft changed to the Xfire... let me see how that baby works out.

WOOT! I'm going to pick it up to test Smile Thanks boss!

On a separate note, has anyone tried Mizuno hybrids (in particular, the MX-700s)?
