Hybrid clones of Taylor Made, Ping, Callaway, etc. When I retired and decided to pick up the game again after a decade long layoff, I had all kinds of trouble hitting irons. I thought hybrids were the ticket. I didn't want to spend too much on the real thing so I found this site that made clones. I would order one at a time to try it. Some worked. Some didn't. I had a mix and match set of hybrid irons up to 52 degree loft. I will admit I liked the sand wedge for chipping. Felt like it slid on the surface nicely and picked the ball up.
But I finally decided the only way to get better is to use irons and wedges and just keep working to make them better. I settled in on this set of Adams irons and hybrids. I just liked the way they feel and now my game is finally improving with them. The clone hybrids are in my shed. Next time I decide to clean it up I will probably throw them out. I did return to one hybrid I have in my bag. Its a 31 degree Ping clone. It replaces my 6 iron. Its the one hybrid that hits really high and comes down straighter than my 6 iron. If I can't get my 6 iron working I might invest in the real thing. Its much more forgiving.
I’m not too overstocked on anything. I have 4 dozen new golf balls, which is a lot for me, 4 new gloves (also a lot), and now that I have new wedges, I have 6 old ones. That’s about as well-stocked as my golf inventory has ever been.
