Tom, I’m going to have a meeting with Ed at Ed’s Custom Golf in next couple of days. Really looking forward to getting his help retooling my bag. During the last couple of months of practice I’ve really come to rely on my hybrids off the tee and with my 2nd shots. I simply find them more reliable with my swing. I have a question about developing a hybrid to complement my 7 iron, perhaps my smooth 6 iron swing. Monday night I hit 6 iron on a par 3 hole that requires careful distance control to avoid going into… Read more »

Thanks Tom. Your comments make sense. I have never had my irons checked for actual loft. Be interesting to see, particularly between my 6 and 7 clubs. I am intrigued by the 775HS spec sheets, in particular the 775-6. Really looking forward to re-tooling my bag with Ed’s help. Thanks again for your advice. Steve

Hi Tom, I am curious as to why the hosel bores are .335 vs. .370 when the hybrids are replacing long and mid irons? Would not the .370 shaft be a more suitable match if exchanging out the iron for the hybrid at the same approximate playing length? Can these hosels be shimmed to take a .370 shaft or would that not be recommended? Thanks for all you have done to make golf more enjoyable for the masses.

Eric, I would consider playing the 775 # 5 hybrid at 37.5 i.e. -1/2 inch from Tom’s intended length for this Hybrid’s spec head weight. Taking full advantage of the added 18 grams total to the weight ports this should achieve a D0.8 swing weight. While going to a 25 gram grip is certainly a viable part of the solution it will restrict your choices of grips.

Tom, with the advancement of shaft technology and the ability to adjust shaft profile to suit different player/swing types I would think .370 shafts could be designed to match any characteristics designed into .335 shafts. Looking at shafts available through Golfworks there are no listings for .335 hybrid shafts thus limiting options to your shaft offerings. Would .335 fairway shafts generally be a viable option for your hybrids? If one were to bore out your hybrids to .370 what weight loss should one expect? Thanks.

Tom, thanks for your reply detailing your experience in designing your shafts and reasoning for not pivoting to .370 hosel sizing for your hybrids. My question on possible hybrids in future being designed with a .370 hosel was my experience with a particular .370 shaft which I would like to use in your 775HS hybrid. If I were to convert this hybrid to .370 what should I expect for weight loss? Thanks.

I am building a set of 575mmc irons with the PCF Micro Pro wedges. The FC 80 Steel Fiber .370 shafts tipping chart recommends that the PW be tipped at 4 7/8 ” I believe, But no tipping for the 52,56 60 wedges. Could you please advise me on how much the wedges should be tipped?

Reply to  Bobby Marson

Bobby
I have never seen a situation where the gap wedge, sand wedge and lob wedge tip trims for a shaft are zero when the PW is more normal at 4+ inches. Only if the shafts for the wedges were specifically DIFFERENT and made ONLY for the wedges would that possibly be true. 99% of the time all the wedges for the same shaft would be tip trimmed the same. Best to double check with the maker of the shafts to get this clarified before you start cutting.

BILL: As long as the tip diameter of the wood shaft matched the bore diameter of the hybrid it is possible to use a wood shaft in a hybrid. Now that being said, it is no small challenge to try to figure out how much to tip the wood shaft because factors like the shafts actual stiffness progression and tip parallel length come into the picture to cloud things. In the end it really is much better to find a hybrid shaft that fits your swing than to be working in the clouds trying to guess how to trim a… Read more »

Hi Tom,
I currently play the Sterling Irons including the Sterling 5h.
I’m thinking of having some 775’s built as single length clubs at 39.5 or 40 inches in length.
My swing speed with my irons is approximately 80-85 mph.
If I have the 4h 775 built to this length is it likely to generate more distance than the Sterling 5h.
Would I have enough swing speed to generate good distance with the 2/3 775h at this length.

Peter: There is a custom clubmaker in Canada who has done very well making a single length hybrid set from the 775 hybrid heads. The fact that the heads have two weight bores helps tremendously for achieving matched swingweights when the hybrids are all made to one length. He tells us he has good success with this. There is absolutely no question that a 775-4 hybrid made to 39, 39.5, 40 inches would hit the ball longer than the Sterling #5 hybrid. The reason is because of the big length difference between 39-40 and back down to the 36.5 or… Read more »

Hey Tom
The specs on the hybrids say the offset is from 16 mm to 20 mm. Is this accurate? I thought these had slight onset if anything.
Also have you seen in your fitting experience where players using an offset iron model fade the ball more than one with minimal offset, and if so, what could be the cause?

Tom Wishon

Reply to  Kourt

KOURT
Measurements like that at 16-20mm are FACE PROGRESSION measurements, not offset. To get the offset from an FP measurement is FP minus 1/2 of the hosel OD. In the case of most hybrids, it won’t be actual negative offset as you get with real irons. It will still be a positive offset with the leading edge out there a little in front of the forward wall of the hosel.

KEVIN since the hybrid(s) would be made longer than the single length irons, you would not be compelled to use the same iron shaft in the hybrids. I do not intend to set up any such guideline of +2″ longer than the irons for the hybrids. Much of that has to do with the golfer’s clubhead speed and swing skills – mainly meaning that going too long is not good for anyone. And with your speed you have enough to make the hybrids work well distance wise at less than a 39″ length. You’ll want to be sure the distance… Read more »

Very glad to hear the recommendation worked out. It helps to have been to a few rodeos in my LONG life in golf equipment technology when it comes to sensing what to recommend for golfers !! For the #2 hybrid, if you find that you are hitting the 38.5″ hybrid plenty high, then you can go with 39.25″ at 3* lower loft than the 38.5″ hybrid.

Hi Tom:
In order to have a 4hybrid for mi set of Sterlings, would it be possible to bend de 3 775 Hybrid:
– Loft: close it to 20
– Lie: from 59 to 63 (as 4* are the maximum you recommend)
– Cut the shaft to 37 inches
– Put some weight on the hosel weight bore and the sole weight bore
By doing this, I should have the perfect 4 Hybrid for my set make up.
What do you think?
Is this advisable?

Luis We do not bend hybrids, fairway woods or drivers for loft changes. The bendable hosel on these types of clubhead models in our product line is used to change the Lie Angle or the Face Angle or both. It’s complicated to explain, but bending a hybrid/wood/driver head is totally different than bending an iron in terms of what spec gets changed when you bend the hosel either forward or back in relation to the face. In an iron, we golfers are always taught to position and HOLD the clubhead so the leading edge and face are square to the… Read more »

I am considering buying a set of sterling irons and I am would like to know how short would it be possible to cut the shaft of the 775 HS hybrid.
I am not sure I am buying the iron 4 from the Sterling but in any case I will need an hybrid. I would like them to be as short as possible.
Assuming this: what would be the minimum shaft lenght for a hybrid 4/3/2?

Luis As a word of caution and advice, to be able to hit the Sterling #4 iron high enough to carry farther than the #5 iron or #5 hybrid, a golfer needs to have a clubhead speed of not less than 85mph with his present 7 iron. At clubhead speeds below 85mph, the shorter single length of 36.5 or 37″ will not generate enough ball speed and backspin with the #4 iron loft of 19* to enable the shot to get high enough to fly and carry farther than the 5 iron.

I’ve been hitting a 775HS 21* and 929HS 18*. I’m sure that they are fine heads but here’s the thing: I keep closing the faces of them both and hitting them left and low. Even when just holding the club I feel like I should turn the face a little bit closed. It looks horrible and I know it’s going left but it feels good in my hands.
So, what in a head design could make me want to do this? I don’t get it!

I am sorry but I have no idea what it is that could make you psychologically want to turn the face closed on the clubs. I’ve never heard that before in 31 yrs of designing clubheads. What you might want to try is to install a RIBBED grip on the clubs so when you grip the club and feel the rib set into your hands, the face is then square. With a ribbed grip you are far less disposed to turning the grip in your hands to change the face angle.

For the sake of symmetry I suppose, not for any pressing reason. I stripped the tape and, although I haven’t hit them since, I can now hold and waggle the clubs without turning the face angle closed. It’s a lot better. Still don’t really understand it but we’ll see if I can now swing them like any other club.… Read more »

The 775 hosel is actually easier to bend than either the 335 or 730 hosel, if there were more of a bend required on the lower loft hybrids for whatever possible reason.

If your clubhead speed with the 21/24 clubs in the 915F/H is above 85mph approaching 90mph, then most likely you would want to have 1* more loft in the 775HS heads than what you have in the F/H to equalize the distances for where they are at now with the F/H’s. Shot height should not really change – I personally know this since I still play a 915 F/H 21 and 24 in my own personal set as my 3 and 4 hybrid clubs !!

There is a company that makes a hybrid wedge in 50-55-60. Would you reason the same that it isn’t business wise to make that type of club, flor your lineup, because there is not enough interest?
