Pinemeadow Hybrid Irons Review

Pinemeadow Golf Hybrid Irons

Hybrid Irons have become very popular with golfers since they were first introduced in the late 1990's.

Hybrid irons are more tolerant of badly struck shots than traditional irons. They are particularly popular with mid to high handicap players. Generally speaking the average amateur golfer will hit the ball further with hybrid irons than they will with a normal golf iron.

Although hybrid golf clubs are a favourite amongst amateur players many of the top professional players will often replace one or two of their long irons with similarly lofted hybrid irons.

Most hybrid golf irons have numbers that are identical to the traditional iron they are designed to replace. That is to say you would use a number five hybrid iron to replace a conventional number 5 iron.

Although you would normally replace a traditional iron with a hybrid iron bearing the same number that is not to say the clubs lofts will be necessarily be identical. It is not unusual for hybrid golf clubs to have marginally less loft that the iron equivalent. You may find, for example, that your original 4 iron may have a loft of 23 degrees whilst the number four hybrid iron could have a loft of only 21 degrees.

Hybrid irons have larger heads than the equivalent conventional golf irons. The centre of gravity is also lower in a hybrid iron and is generally positioned a little further back in the club head. The shaft of a hybrid iron will almost always be graphite, although some manufacturers (including Pinemeadow) will offer a steel shaft as an alternative. The shaft length of a hybrid will also be longer than that of the traditional iron it is replacing. This extra length helps to increase the club head speed which increases distance.

The trajectory of the ball will be higher with hybrid irons than traditional irons which makes it particularly useful for approach shots to the green. This is because the higher trajectory will result in less roll thereby reducing the possibility of the ball running off the back of the green.

It is important to remember that hybrid irons should be played off the fairway in the same way you would play a normal iron, but possibly a little further back in the stance. They should not be played as though they are woods. The only exception would be when playing them from the tee.

A lot of golf clubs that are sold as sets will often include a 3, 4 and 5 hybrid irons as standard. It is also quite common for players to replace the long irons in a conventional set of clubs with hybrids.

Like many golf club manufacturers Pinemeadow Golf produce a range of hybrid golf clubs.

Features of the Pinemeadow PRE Progressive Hybrid Irons

The Pinemeadow Golf PRE Progressive Hybrid Iron Set is designed to appeal to mid to high handicap golfers. There are a number of features that make the PRE Progressive Hybrid Iron set ideal for these players.

The PRE Progressive Hybrid Golf Irons have a much larger sweet spot than conventional golf irons. This makes them far more forgiving on shots that may not be struck absolutely perfectly. The complete set features heads that are of a hollow construction. The sole plate of the long irons is quite broad which helps the player to set up correctly and get the ball away cleanly. The width of the sole plate gets progressively narrower on the mid and short irons. Having a wider sole plate prevents the club from digging into the ground on shots on 'duffed shots' where you make contact with the ground before the ball.

The club heads are slightly offset which also helps the high handicap golfer to address the ball correctly.
