When hybrid golf clubs started getting popular, many golfers added the 3 or 4 hybrids to their bags, generally replacing the irons they were finding hard to hit. Made sense. As people started getting more comfortable with hybrid golf clubs, they wanted to have the same or similar clubs in midrange sizes. Golf manufacturers complied and started stretching the top and bottom of the range.

Today, you can get a hybrid golf club from # 1 to # 9 and even wedges come in hybrids. It seems odd but it isn’t really. As a golfer, you like to play with clubs that make you feel comfortable and that help you get consistent results. If hybrid clubs make you feel more comfortable, then why not have a set of hybrids.

The general assumption is that most people struggle with long irons. However; at InterloperGolf, we see a good many orders for hybrid clubs in the shorter scoring clubs. Many people are ordering # 7, 8 and 9 in hybrid clubs. Initially we were a bit surprised but not everyone is good with short irons – we just assumed they were. Now that people see options available to them, they want to have hybrids there also.

Looking at the demand for hybrids, we started tinkering with different make up of sets of hybrid golf clubs. We started with a set of 3 hybrid clubs, generally # 3, 4 and 5. It did decent business but our real success came with the set of 7 hybrid clubs, # 3 to #9. Emboldened, we came up with a set of 11 hybrid clubs, # 1 to #9, PW and SW and it did well too. Today, we offer several sets of hybrid golf clubs. Some of them are listed below:

While sales of sets of hybrid clubs are on the rise, sales of iron sets are on the decline. Most people would buy a set of irons, 3-9 + wedges. Not any more. Popular configurations are either all hybrids or 3-5 hybrid clubs and 6-9 irons and then a set of 3 or 4 wedges. Woods have also taken a hit as hybrids have stretched their upper ends into the 1 and 2 clubs. Now people buy the 3, 4 and 5 woods but seldom venture into the 7 and 9 woods as hybrids have taken that market over.

There is still debate on whether you should go with graphite shafts on hybrid clubs or steel. Larger manufacturers like Callaway, Nike, TaylorMade, Cleveland etc. promote hybrids as they can sell them for more. Hybrids are almost always more expensive than steel. At InterloperGolf however; we believe that since hybrids replace irons, it is best to stay with steel shafts. That way, you don’t sacrifice control and costs stay under control. With the new lightweight steel shafts, we now have some of the advantages of graphite without giving up on control and costs are still way below graphite from major manufacturers.

All in all, this popularity of hybrid clubs is good for the amateur / recreational golfer. Helps you enjoy the game.
