Cobra Fly-Z


Cobra’s SmartPad adjustability technology on its Fly-Z hybrids enables you to select from eight different loft and trajectory settings, all while maintaining a square face angle at address—a great feature. In addition, the Speed Channel—an engineered “trench” around the perimeter of the face— minimizes face thickness to improve ball speed. Low and rearward CG placement for a higher launch rounds out the primary design elements. Three models are available: 2-3H (16 to 19 degrees), 3-4H (19 to 22 degrees) and 4-5H (22 to 25 degrees).

successful “R” franchise, including a hybrid design: the R15 Rescue. Better players will fall in love with the compact (99cc) head design (dubbed the “peanut” design by TaylorMade Tour staff); it greatly enhances the R15’s versatility and playability. Similarly, stronger players will be happy to learn that the R15 has a neutral to slight fade bias—you won’t have to worry about losing shots left, as is common with some other hybrid models. An unobtrusive 3-degree loft sleeve allows players to fine-tune their trajectories and distance gaps. The R15 Rescue is available in 2H (17 degrees), 3H (19 degrees), 4H (21 degrees) and 5H (24 degrees) models.

Nike Vapor Flex


Designed to provide more distance with optimized launch conditions, the Vapor Flex hybrids have a reinforced cavity-back design that interacts with a compression channel behind the clubface to enhance ball speed. These hybrids have a fantastic look at address, too, with a straighter leading edge that sits tighter to the turf. A sloped crown design lowers the center of gravity for more consistent impact and improved launch conditions. A FlexLoft2 mechanism allows for fine-tuning the loft and face angles. The Vapor Flex hybrids are available in 3H (17 to 21 degrees) and 4H (21 to 25 degrees) models.
