I am not a big Bobby Jones Hybrid fan because the hybrid looks too much like a fariway wood. I have switched to Adams Golf and their a7Os and a7 irons and I love the way the hybrids play just like I would expect. I find that a7Oses play about a clube length or two mnore than my previous set and now I don’t have any graphite irons beyond the 5 hybrid or beyond the six iron in the a7 series. KUDOS to Adams Golf – the jury is still out for Bobby Jones hybrids in my mind!
My vote for progressive iron set is to both the a7OS and the a7 set. In terms of the hybrid set, the a7Os has my vote over the Tech V3 My tendency is to slice or fade shots so I find that the a7Os straightens out that slice very much thank you! Tech V3 might be a nice set in themselves but I would find them awkward to play because of my slice. I will stick with my a7Oses and my a7’s thank you!
I thought Cleveland Hi Bore were an all hybrid. That means to me that Adams a7Os is the best integrated hybrid iron set around. I would rather play a set of mixed hybrids, hybrid irons, and oversized irons as the a7Os offers over the Hi Bore set any day. I think somehow this selection was not well thought out. If I wanted a full set of hybrid irons I would have bought the a7Os max – certainly not the Hi Bore!
