Hybrid Golf Clubs Preferences
Hybrid golf clubs are by far the best thing that has come along in golf for many years. From helping many pro's hit a Jack Nickolas like 1 iron, that fly's high and lands softly onto the green, to the everyday golfer replacing all hard to hit standard irons with the corresponding number hybrid golf club.
Hybrids have been designed to take advantage of the best attributes of fairway woods. Like fairway woods, hybrids have a wide sole with a low center of gravity, helping the golfer to hit high shots with accuracy. The face on many of the hybrids have roll and bulge to give the golfer a gear effect shot correction technology. This type of technology can be found on drivers and fairway wood heads. Like on many standard irons hybrids also have an offset hosel to give the golfer more time to close the club face before impact to help reduce shots that slice. Many golfers will find hybrids to be ideally designed for a sweeping swing rather having to hit down and taking divots like with standard irons. Hybrid golf clubs have a higher MOI (Moment of Inertia) compared to stranded irons, which translates to more forgiveness on off center hit's
Like with standard irons it's possible to find hybrids with shaft choices of graphite or steel. The main advantage of graphite over steel is the lower weight of graphite shafts will help increase swing speed, translating into more distance. Graphite is also very good in reducing vibration verses steel, but steel on the other hand is a very good choice for tempo control for long hitters not looking for added distance.
It is highly recommended that most golfers use more hybrids for more enjoyment, and to help lower scores.
