Hybrids are a fantastic option to have in the bag for both amateur and professional golfers. If smashing a driver down the middle of the fairway isn't a comfortable option, then a hybrid can provide a lot more accuracy and a good amount of distance to set up your approach. Not only can hybrids be used as a weapon off the tee, but also from the fairway, out of the rough and in some cases even out of fairway bunkers.
Below is our five favourite hybrid deals currently available in September, so if you're in the market for a new hybrid, give one of these a try before you buy!
Cobra engineers optimized specific zones of the construction to engineer the highest level of performance in a hybrid. The performance can be attributed to the following key technologies:
- Hollow Split Rail Technology – allows for more flex than solid rails, creating a larger hot spot for higher launch and increased distance.
- Back Weighting – weight concentrated low and back creates higher launch, more spin, towering trajectories and maximum carry.
- Forged E9 Face- A forged, two-piece construction features a high-strength 455 stainless steel that can be designed thinner for increased ball speed.
- Refined Shape – slightly larger than a traditional hybrid, the shape features a high MOI for increased forgiveness on off-center hits, and a square leading edge to improve alignment and accuracy.
- COBRA Connect – Track your accuracy and distance and overall performance using the Arccos Caddie app on your smart device.
Callaway Big Bertha B21
Built to unlock your distance with a total forgiveness package. This is the Company’s easiest to launch hybrid with a larger head volume, and it’s designed to help get rid of the big miss that spins off line. Fast ball speeds are led by an A.I. designed Flash Face SS21 and Jailbreak. The offset is increased for a straighter ball flight, and to enhance launch and trajectory, dual MIM’ed (Metal-Injected Molding) Tungsten weights are precisely placed into the sole of the clubhead.
PING's first-ever adjustable hybrid allows golfers to customise their ball flight eight different ways through loft (+/- 1.5 degrees) and lie combinations for consistently better results.
Thinner and more flexible, the maraging steel face generates faster ball speeds and higher launch.
Its larger profile and high-density back weight provides added stabiity and elevates MOI for more forgiveness.
TaylorMade SIM Max
A club that's recently been in the bag of Rory McIlroy, who never used to use a hybrid until he tried the SIM Max and loved its versatility, high launch and distance.
As a long-iron replacement, it’s imperative that hybrids be versatile and playable in all conditions. That’s why TaylorMade has incorporated V Steel technology into a hybrid for the first time in the company’s history with SIM Max Rescue. The clubhead is engineered to deliver improved turf interaction and reduced friction when playing from various lies. A reshaped leading edge works in conjunction with V Steel to further improve playability and strike conditions.
Designers rounded the toe and adjusted the face angle to give SIM Max Rescue a more confidence-inspiring shape at address for all levels of golfers. It utilises the same C300 Steel face used in the SIM Max fairway woods to help improve ball speed, durability and overall performance. The corrective technologies of Twist Face and Speed Pocket offer improved performance and forgiveness on mis-hits on the toe, heel and low on the face.
Wilson Staff D7 hybrid has been engineered with advanced materials and RE.AKT Technology to give you the best possible versatility and playability. The superlight design makes it easier to swing and generate faster clubhead speed.
This lightweight crown has been constructed with thin-cast pockets, this dynamically reduces weight and provides strength, for maximum clubhead speed.
Carpenter 455 Face
The D7 hybrid has a thin, hot face insert, made from a high-strength maraging steel, this creates an incredible feel and enhanced ball speed performance.
