5 Best Hybrid Golf Clubs 2019
Hybrid golf clubs are renowned for ease of use, combining the usability of a fairway wood with the pinpoint accuracy of an iron.
As arguably the most forgiving club known to man, the hybrid can get you out of many difficult spots, for example when you’re just off the fairway.
Many choose to hit a hybrid even when they have a good lie, simply because the large surface area of the club face provides a greater sweet spot.
Hybrid play is an especially useful tactic for beginners, especially for those who can take advantage of the latest technology for increased bail speed.
Using a hybrid club is a useful tactic because long irons are notoriously hard to hit. With hybrids less acclaimed golfers can hit solid shots with consistency.
Also known as a rescue club or utility club, there are various configurations to choose from, usually between 17 and 28 degrees loft.
Other decisions include shaft length and type, adjustability and of course design.
But with so many hybrid clubs to choose from, which are most recommended on your golfing journey?
Here are five clubs which will help on your quest to becoming a useful player!
Callaway Rogue Hybrid Golf Club
A highly recognized brand boasting a highly rated hybrid club.
Callaway have really outdone themselves this time, with a club that’s available for left and right-handers with either regular, stiff or senior flex.
Though only the ‘synergy’ shaft material is available that doesn’t mean to say it isn’t highly customizable.
With four different loft types (17, 19, 21, 24 and 27 degrees) golfers can treat themselves to a replacement for each of the long irons in their set.
The Rogue uses Jailbreak technology which incorporates two steel bars that stiffen the body. It also has a Hyper Speed face cup which increases the ball speed of shots as the ball pings off the face.
What makes this club special is it’s easy to launch further and straighter.
Arguably the best hybrid golf club on the market, the Rogue will capably help you out of some sticky situations, especially as it’s been coined the most powerful hybrid ever!
A truly magnificent feat of engineering.
TaylorMade M4 Hybrid Rescue Club
As the Rogue’s main competitor, the M4 comes complete with four configurations, including the 19, 22, 25 and 28 degree loft options.
This allows you to customize your bag with clubs that suit your individual style and preference.
The M4 is the latest in the TaylorMade collection, succeeding the highly reputable M2 and M3.
It enables golfers to hit a variety of shots as it’s easy to launch from any situation you find yourself in on the course.
It’s difficult to separate this club from the Rogue, especially considering the quantifiable research that’s gone into ensuring a flawless design.
You certainly won’t regret equipping yourself with this top of the range hybrid.
Adam Tight Lies Hybrid
Though we’ve just examined two high end hybrids on the market, that doesn’t mean to say you have to spend a fortune to get top quality.
In fact there are many cheap alternatives to choose from, like the Adams Hybrid.
There are two lofts, the 22 and 25 degree, which come complete with either a regular or senior flex with a graphite shaft.
The Tight Lies Hybrid uses patented Ghost Slot technology which creates greater acceleration as the ball leaves the club face. This creates a level of flexibility and forgiveness which is perfectly suited to the amateur game.
The club has a large sweet spot which does exactly as the name suggests: helps you escape tough lies.
It also has a low profile upside down design with a huge sweet spot. These characteristics make it the best lower priced hybrid on the market for consistent long distance shots.
A fantastic replacement for long irons.
Cobra KING F7 Adjustable Hybrid
What’s fantastic about this hybrid is it comes complete with an adjustable loft mechanism you can tailor to your requirements.
Produced by one of the most recognized names in golf, the club comprises forged stainless steel which maximizes face flexing.
This increases bail speed and ultimately allows you to hit the ball further.
What’s revolutionary about the F7 is its Baffler Dual Rail System, which improves turf interaction for greater consistency from various lies.
It also has a single fixed weight for a deep center of gravity. This is positioned low to generate even greater distance.
If it’s adjustability you’re after you need look no further than the F7. The ability to manually manage trajectory prevents you from having to carry multiple clubs for different shots.
Pine Meadow Excel EGI Hybrid
This is another great option for those on budget, and the Excel EGI Hybrid certainly doesn’t compromise quality either.
Let’s face it, unless you’re a top player you’re probably not going to notice the nuances between expensive and less expensive clubs, so long as you choose something which comes with a stamp approval.
And this club certainly does.
What’s great about it is it’s ideal for beginners, coming complete with various lofts including 19, 22, 28, 32, 35, 36, 40 and 45 degrees.
The loftier the club the easiest it is to get elevation from under the ball.
This hybrid club comes complete in either a regular flex or graphite shaft, and you’re onto a winner when you consider the price.
For replacing troublesome irons this is exactly what’s required, so if you’re eager to try a new hybrid and wondering what all the fuss is about this club will certainly help.
What’s great is it has a version for literally every iron, meaning if hybrids are your thing you can literally use a hybrid for every type of shot you’ll face on the golf course!
