Important Factors To Consider When Buying A Hybrid

Golfers who like using hybrids benefit from their unique design. The hybrid design is a mix of features you would find in a fairway wood and an iron. But, when wanting to purchase a hybrid to add to your collection of clubs, there are a few elements to consider ensuring you get the right one. Since more players are finding it easier to use them, it is a common go-to club when wanting to replace certain clubs to improve their game. The following points offer perspective on what to look for when buying a hybrid.

  • Why do you want one? Golfers often want a hybrid to replace clubs they have such as an iron or fairway wood. Others may just simply like the idea of having on to play certain shots. If you intend to have one to replace a club or clubs this may influence how much you want to spend and which option to purchase. A clear purpose for this club should be established to know what options to consider.
  • Think about angle of loft (for replacement club). If you plan to use a hybrid to make plays you would have normally used other clubs for, consider the angle and loft of the club. There are hybrids designed at different angles and this can make a difference in your play ability in the future.
  • The hybrid choice should have similar flex in shaft like your other clubs. If you don’t choose something with similar flex and feel it may lead to inconsistent play. It makes it easier for you to adapt when you on the course. When you find a club you want make practice swings to observe its flexibility and feel. Your final selection should fit in with your other clubs you like to use.
  • Should be same length shaft wise as your other irons. The hybrid may stand out a little as being different in design, but it shouldn’t overshadow your other clubs. The length of your hybrid should be about the same as your other clubs as it helps when having clubs on the course playing different holes.
  • Try it out to ensure it is a match before you buy it. Get your hands on the club and practice different grips and swing techniques. It should feel good and have potential to grow with your skills on the green.
