If you have the ones in average condition selected and the price is only $123 for both then it is a hard deal to pass up.

For the record, the 4h I got in "average" looked like it had only been hit a few times...

The X2H 5h I got in "average" looked like it had spent some hard time on a dusty range and the face was devoid of pretty much any paint. I ain't complaining or anything as the price was fair. I traded it to one of my golf groups higher handicaps and he's lovin' it.

I put a pair or Recoil shafts in my 3 and 4 and really like these clubs.

Bumping an old thread but I got the 4 hybrid from CPO to replace my older adams 3 hybrid and 4 iron and tried it for the first time today. On the first hole I was 240 out and pulled it just to see what kind of distance I could get. I took a smooth swing and hit it high and straight at the flag and came up about 15 yards short. Later, on another par 5, I dropped a ball from 210 out and hit it right over the flag and rolled it to the back of the green. I also used it off the tee on a 339 yard par 4 and ended up right beside the 100 yard marker. I'm gonna have to spend some time at the range to see if I can choke up on it and get a little less distance so that I won't still need my 4 iron. So far I couldn't be happier with its performance.

Don was killing these all weekend long. He needs Callaway to make an entire set pronto! 2-9 iron!

That's how I felt after taking my 4 hybrid to the course for the first time! If it holds up I may consider the 5h as well if my pride can handle it.

Snatched up a used 3h the other day, excited to give it a go as I didn't get along with the original x hot very well.

Mine goes straight and long. 230 over water 10' from the pin with minimal roll out.

You'll fall in love like I did.

At least I hope so.

It's a very different golf club. I was surprised they abandoned the X Hot at first, but I think you'll see why they went that direction.

my favorite hybrid in the last few years without a doubt. I still have my 3 sitting on the bench after getting the heavenwood. The 4H though has been great for me, allowed me to kick out the 5 iron.

My work mate lent me his 18° pro to try. He can't hit it very well and I'm in the market so I'll give it a try. It had the tour green shaft which I like, as I have one in my 5 deep.

I recently picked these up and was smoking them at the range. However, I just played a bunch of rounds over the weekend in Palm Springs area and they sure didn't make a good case for staying in the bag. I was hooking almost all of them, which is unusual for me. This was never a problem for me with the mashie.

All this to say, I took advantage of the 20% off CPO sale and bought an Apex UT iron, so I'm going to play both for awhile to see who wins. In general I hit my irons more consistently than my hybrids. However, I usually didn't have a problem with them.

I came away from these rounds utterly confused...

I just setup with the face open just a degree or two compared to my setup with my irons and boom. Off the ball goes long and straight.

I've always played my hybrids this way FWIW.

But I also prefer to play my long irons and have been playing the XRP'S 4-AW with a lot of success. So only carry the 3 X2 HOT hybrids and 3 DEEP 14.5 X2 HOT FAIRWAY WOOD on top.

But definitely tempted by the sales prices on virtually brand new gear at CPO recently.
