Adams Idea Pro Gold
Adams has a variety of hybrids available, but the Pro Gold is our favorite. Popular with Tour pros because of its neutral weighting, narrow sole and shotmaking abilities, the Idea Pro Gold is still a lot more forgiving than any long iron you’ll find. We particularly like the Matrix Ozik shaft that makes hitting shots with a boring trajectory a piece of cake.
Lofts: 16°, 18°, 20°, 23°, 26°

Bridgestone J36 Hybrid
Designed for better players, the J36 hybrids allow for tremendous shotmaking capabilities. Want to hit a low punch shot? A high fade? How about a sweeping draw? All kinds of shots can be hit with these stellar long-iron alternatives. Add on the Aldila VS Proto shaft, and you have a hybrid made for scoring. (Let’s see your long irons try to do that.)
Lofts: 16°, 19°, 22°, 25°

Callaway Big Bertha Diablo
With hybrids like the BB Diablo, you’ll soon forget the sting that came from ill-hit long irons. These hybrids have a Dual Runner Sole (DRS) that reduces surface area with the ground, a smooth wood-shaped head and S2H2 Tech, all resulting in a series of hybrids that each lend big distance and tremendous forgiveness. Shafts come in steel or graphite.
Lofts: 18, 21, 24, 27
