In this review, there were many hybrids to choose from, each claiming to be the best. There are only so many physical aspects that a designer can manipulate - so they all focus on principles like moment of inertia [MOI], center of gravity [COG], and coefficient of restitution [COR] using computers to test their design. But in the last analysis, no matter how good the technical design is, it comes down to two questions: Does the club fit you and which clubs are the best?
The first question is answered during the fitting process, the second question is the topic of this review.
Time to Go Hybrid
Hybrids are much easier to hit than long irons and big-headed fairway so if you havenâ€™t already done so, itâ€™s time to go â€œhybridâ€�.
What is a Hybrid?
A hybrid is just that â€“ itâ€™s a combination of an iron and a wood. But not all hybrids are the same. Some are more like irons with flat faces while others have some bulge or roll on the face. Some have fade build in, while others have a bias for the draw. The length of the shaft is shorter than a wood but longer [a half to one inch] than a long iron.
A hybrid gives you a higher trajectory and more distance on your long shots. And they are easier to hit out of bad lies.
