PostSubject: Adams A4OS or Cleveland Launcher Hybrid   Fri Mar 12, 2010 10:45 pm

Hi guys,

i know this may seem asinine, and i don't know if i'm just feeling itchy but i'm having a tough time choosing whether to go with the adams or cleveland launcher for my set of 3 and 4 hybrids. i personally like the feel of both of them, aesthetics wise the launcher has a nicer shape but i hate the alignment aid.

i'm at the point where i could go either way so i'm looking for your personal opinions to tip me over the edge cos i really can't decide between the two. haha

thanks for the opinions guys! Smile

i've hit both of them and they both are really good, and i'm torn between the two, so i was hoping someone's personal opinion might sway my decision to one of them. any reason will do! like brand preference or the shaft or the sound or something! hahaha

I have not tried the launcher hyb, but if it was like the hibore hybrid, then it is pretty straight and long, the 3hyb gave me 175m carry when I tried at Marina Bay about 2 years back.

But Adams hyb I can tell you more. I have tried the A2OS, A3OS A4OS and A7 hybrids mostly in golfsmith's simulator in LA, and bought the A4OS now in my bag for coming to 2 years, comes with YSQ HL shaft 19 degrees. The feel and distance on flush hits are quite good compared to any hybrids I tried like cobra, callaway, TM and some japanese like maruman and kasco. Sometimes when one hits a hybrid we try to force a little for distance. no harsh feedback from A4OS if you miss the sweet spot, and take this strange observation: 3/4 backswing shots goes just as long, quite important when you need long carry over water. After a while I started using it on fairway bunker, quite good if you let the clubhead just swing. I once hit a firend's hibore from bunker, it didn't work head was too heavy and sank right into the sand for a "nice" duff. But take it for what its worth from a 16 handicapper. Those low handicappers here would always have a different view. One single-hand I played with at SAFRA who tried my A4OS decided he didn't like it even though he hit it 190m on the par 5 Army No 1 for a 2-on. Said the head was as big as a wood, defeats the purpose of a hybrid.

great feedback bro thanks! Smile

i guess hybrids aren't meant to be small and compact and workable like an iron. if not why would we buy them? haha

wouldn't you think the a4os is a bit of an old model if you're only getting it now? i feel myself gravitating towards the taylormade rescue 2009.
