Wishon Golf’s new 797HS hybrids offer a high COR face design with slightly stronger lofts to deliver more distance when used off the tee on tight holes or longer par-3 holes.  

The 797HS is also designed with three weight bores to allow as much as a 27 gram increase to the headweight, allowing clubmakers to build to a wide variety of shorter custom lengths at normal swingweights to achieve much better control and consistency with little to no loss of distance.  Designed with a slightly more narrow body shape with progressively taller face height, when set behind the ball the 797HS hybrids look incredibly easy to hit consistently high to achieve maximum carry distance.

 

  • C455 high strength steel alloy face delivers higher COR for higher ball speed and greater distance.
  • Unique 797HS head design combines a slightly more narrow body shape with slightly taller face height to offer a confident look behind the ball and less chance of hitting under the shot from fluffy rough. 
  • 33 to 35mm progressive face height combines with thicker sole section to offer a slightly higher CG to generate penetrating shot trajectory with  adequate height, good for use off the tee on tight holes or long par-3 holes.
  • Body and hosel are investment cast from 431 stainless with heat treatment to allow bending the hosel 2-3° for custom lie and face angle fitting needs.

  • Industry standard hybrid lengths are as much as 2” longer than an iron with the same loft.  The twin sole weight bores on the 797HS combine with the hosel weight bore to enable clubmakers to add as much as 27g to the headweight to allow assembly to shorter lengths for more control, consistency and proper distance to ensure proper distance gaps, down to the irons.  Wishon Golf has proven hybrid lengths at or even shorter than an iron of the same loft will deliver more consistency and control without large distance gaps.

Would it be possible to build these to the same length as my EQ1-NX irons? Or should I stick to the EQ1 hybrids to complete the set?

BRIAN Best to stick with the EQ1 hybrids to make them the same length as the EQ irons. WHile the multiple weight bores on the sole of the 797 hybrids will allow them to be built to a shorter length than our normal hybrid lengths (normal is #3 = 39″, #4 = 38.5″, #5 = 38″) if your EQ1 iron length is 36.5″ (8 iron length) you won’t be able to get that short with the 797 and have it come out to a normal swingweight. Also, and this is a BIG ONE, the standard lie angle of the 797… Read more »

I want to remove my S2S White stiff shaft from my #6 775hs and replace it with a .335 A flex SK Fiber wood shaft. Can you give me any advise on how to tip trim the “wood” shaft for your hybrid, or a reference chart? Thanks Tom.

DOUG All parallel tip shafts are made with a specific length of the shaft up from the tip where the shaft remains at that 0.335″ (wood) or 0.370″ (iron) tip diameter. This is called the tip parallel section of the shaft. That dictates how much could possibly be trimmed off the tip end of a shaft and still be able to have the shaft fit into the hosel bore of the head. IN most every wood shaft, the tip parallel section is never longer than 3″ to 3.5″. Sometimes it can be only 2.5″. So the first thing you need… Read more »

Thank you so much for the very technical, yet easy to understand explanation, I have the knowledge and tool skill to do everthing you suggested. However, not sure I want to deal with all the vaviables. I think I’ll stick with a hybrid shaft at .335. May be tough to find a .335 as good as the Wishon White S2S. You are the best source for tech info out there.

Hello Tom,
I am contemplating changing out my 3 and 4 irons for hybrids. I’m a little confused by the use of bulge and roll on a clubbed that is to replace in iron with a flat face. Can I continue to hit down and through taking a divot or should I adjust my swing to be more of a sweeping motion through the ball?

Chris Absolutely great question you asked and I am happy to have the chance to explain. Irons do not have bulge and roll because their shape is far more narrow than any hybrid. In other words, the distance from face to back on an iron is a lot shorter than the distance from face to back on a hybrid (or wood, or driver, clubs that also have bulge and roll). What that does is place the center of gravity very close to the face on an iron, but much farther back from the face on a hybrid (or wood/driver). And… Read more »

Tom, it’s unbelievable to which excess you give insight into the mechanics of club design. Others would ask for a fee to share this knowledge, while you offer it for free! I admit I read.through each comment.section of each club just to grab as many wisdom as possible so really appreciate your work.

Michael Thanks very much for your appreciation of the information! Several reasons for me doing that. WAY BACK when I was starting and was curious about EVERYTHING related to golf clubs, I used to try to call the golf companies and shaft makers with my questions. Every time I got shut down or hung up on and I literally got so pissed at that one day that I threw the phone and declared that I was going to go out and learn all this stuff on my own and when I did, I was going to share whatever I learned… Read more »

CHRIS I’m sorry, I forgot in all that diatribe of explanation to answer your question!!! (I can get carried away with explanations!!!) If you have the hybrid at the same length as the iron being replaced, play the ball in the same position in your stance. Don’t try to make any extra effort to hit down on it. Just use your regular swing and don’t think about it. The other factor in this is the shape of the hybrid’s leading edge. Hopefully the hybrid would have a decent amount of rounding/radius around the leading edge from face to sole so… Read more »

Hi Tom, I a big fan of your designs going back to Snake Eyes. I have a buddy who is still using one I built for him.
I have the 775hs #2, #3, #4, and #5. The 775hs #4 is my favorite go to club in my bag. However, they are looking a bit worn and my club head speed has slowed, so the #2 is ready for retirement. I’m sorely tempted by these 797hs beauties. Can you talk me off the ledge, or should I jump?

JIM Thanks so much for your interest in my work over the years. I really do appreciate that, very much! I was cleaning up some stuff the other day in my workshop office and tripped across a set of the Snake Eyes MC-01 forgings along with 3-4 of the wedges that I was able to design in the late 90s when Golfsmith had bought the name out of bankruptcy. It was fun re living that because I hadn’t seen any of the Snake Eyes stuff I designed for quite a while. 775 is and always has been a really good… Read more »
