Anyone care to share what hybrid (brand) is in your bag?

I have a TM R7 Draw model and planning to look for a new one... anyone care to share which model in the market is good?

I am a bit of dinosaur.....still using the 1st generation of Nike CPR.....aka my old faithfuls....18deg CPR wood and 21deg CPR iron...

Because I am known as 'pee-shooter' , the former give me 170m and latter give me 150m range only....

Me using old TM Mid Rescue 25degree.
I am hitting straight at 150m, think it suits me as i constantly hit straight with it.

But would like to change my hybrid to 3H as this distance duplicate with 5i.
Anyone selling me? Very Happy

Nike CPR FTW!!!!!

I'm also still using my 19* CPR. It's the oldest club in my bag, but i recently fitted a crossfire shaft to it and now it's even more consistent. Easy 185m from almost any lie.

Don't think you'll be able to find it in the market anymore though.

*edit* I'd like to add that i'm actually looking for a Titleist 909H now.. backside itchy

I am using Rescue Dual TP 2 & 3H. The 2H is relatively untouched. I personally prefer using woods.

Definitely the Cobra Baffler. I'm using the 2008 DWS model. 23 degrees loft with the Crossfire Shaft.

I used to favour the Callaway Heavenwood but it has gone cold recently. I'm sticking to the Bafflers for now.

What's the logic in buying a 15* hybrid? I mean.. hybrids are supposed to replace hard to hit long irons right? For the majority of golfers, we have no use for the 1i at all. If you really want something at 15*, i think a better choice might have been to get a 3W instead.

Of coz some ppl will find that a 5W is easier to hit than a 3H, and therefore use it to plug their distance gaps. Moral of the story.. know your distance gaps first, then go out and try all the possible clubs before making that purchase..

Wah! So chun... my coach just told me something today and I will just translate it here.

Coach told me that he used to be able to hit a 1-iron. (He's old-school, aka Jack Nicklaus era). Some even say that "only God can hit a 1-iron." But as technology comes into play, Coach found that he could not hit a 1-iron off crappy lies. (ie bunkers). However, with a 1-Hybrid (15 degrees), he could. Therefore, out went the 1-iron and in came the 15 degree hybrid.

Of course. Coach is a phenomenal player and this 15 degree hybrid applies only to the elite. I will just stick to my trust 23 degree Baffler. Very Happy

Hope that helps.

cleveland halo...

met one guy who reshafted the 1i hybrid to a 2i length, as he found the 2i ballflight to be too high... like deciding betw 8.5 or 10.5 deg loft for driver...
