There is a reason why Adams Golf hybrid clubs are now regarded as the best-designed hybrids on the market and the dominant brand of their kind
Adams Golf have always been renowned for their hybrid clubs, and many of the guys on tour use them. I was therefore looking forward to

Straight off I have to say I enjoyed playing with these clubs and just loved the adjustability of the hybrid. And I must admit I didn’t think
Cobra Baffler Rail
Key Technology: A compact head that sits square and has neutral weighting for added workability. The shallow face is laser welded and made from steel to promote higher ball speeds and longer shots.
Mizuno MP CLK
Key Technology: A hybrid designed for strong ball strikers thanks to a tour inspired square face and low profile design. Internal weighting in the head helps to move the sweet spot low on the face, reducing backspin and a ballooning flight. The shape of the head allows the player to work the ball.
Cleveland Launcher DST
Key Technology: The centre of the sole sits in a slight recess between two raised areas. This helps to reduce drag from the turf and improves playability from the rough.
Benross VX Proto Escape
Key Technology: A traditional shape and shallow face is combined with a generous head size, which combines workability with forgiveness. Designed with a low centre of gravity to help produce high shots, particularly from the rough.
Yonex NanoSpeed 3i
Key Technology: The Yonex Nanospped 3i hybrid features a stainless steel sole and face that is combined with a lightweight carbon graphite crown. Extra weight is placed in an inner weight system that lowers and deepens the centre of gravity to aid ball flight. The shaft is specifically designed by Yonex to give added consistency.
TaylorMade 09 Rescue
Key Technology: A new compact head shape gives greater versatility and workability. The ‘Low Friction’ sole design helps to produce a clean contact with the ball. The centre of gravity placement is designed to give a mid to high launch.
Key Technology: The internal weighting design moves the centre of gravity lower and further back. The lofts however are 1? stronger and this combination creates a flight that is both high and penetrating. Available in 17°, 20° and 23° options.
Price: £120 (S) £135 (G)
Key Technology: Designed with more iron like weight distribution compared to other PING hybrids. This has increased the MOI by a huge 49%. A large toe area helps to increase forgiveness levels.
Srixon ZTX Hybrid
Key Technology: A shallow head with Tungsten nickel weights in the toe and heel, produce high shots with less run. The face has been made thinner and lighter giving added distance while increasing the size of the sweetspot.
MD Golf Superstrong
Key Technology: Compared to previous Superstrong hybrids the 2010 model has been made deeper and an extra 1.5mm of offset has been added. This combination increases the club’s forgiveness dramatically.
Ben Sayers Benny
Key Technology: Features a specially designed groove configuration to increase spin and control from all types of lie. Weight is placed low and deep in the head for added forgiveness.
Ram Tour Grind X
Key Technology: The square head is designed to give a longer carry and improved control. Weight is repositioned in the corners of the head to help square the face at the impact decision.
Wilson FYbrid HS
Key Technology: A new heavy sole has lowered the centre of gravity to aid forgiveness and optimise the launch angle. The sole has a lower leading edge, designed to improve contact from a variety of lies.
Key Technology: Created to suit tour players by opening the face of the compact head slightly and altering the centre of gravity. This gives a high launch with reduced spin and provides extreme workability.
Titleist 909 H
Key Technology: The head size, shape, offset and centre of gravity change depending on the loft of the club. A screw is positioned in the back of the sole in order to position the centre of gravity in the perfect place for optimum launch.
Callaway Diablo Edge Tour
Key Technology: A sole design improves contact from a variety of lies and turf conditions. The thin crown means the centre of gravity is lowered to where more amateurs strike the ball. Variable face thickness increases ball speed across the face.
MD Golf Seve
Key Technology: A hybrid specifically designed to produce the type of high ball flight not associated with long irons. Weight is positioned in the corners of the head for forgiveness and control. It has a deeper face and extra offset compared to previous models.
Adams idea a7
Key Technology: Incorporating the best attributes of the popular Idea Pro Hybrids the Idea a7 is a blend of high performance, forgiveness and increased carry distance.
Mizuno MP Fli-Hi
Key Technology: The offset and bounce have been reduced to improve workability. The thin face is plasma welded to the body for increased distance. The hollow construction helps control flight.
