PING Mens G30 Hybrid
Game improvement hybrid
I bought the 17 and 22 degree G30 hybrids. I have been a Ping fan for a long time. I have always found them forgiving and long. I had been fitted for a set of clubs in the past but more recently bought off the shelf or customized on my own. This purchase was off the shelf with the x-stiff shaft. These are just as forgving as my G25s with similar distance. I like the looks a little better this version. The blue is nice.
I have never been a good wind player. It just kills my distance despite the fact my swing speed is about 110mph. I went and was fitted for a new set of clubs recently and realize why. I was also playing the G30 irons. These clubs are meant to get the ball in the air and they do that. If you have a high swing speed or launch it high anyway, you'll need a different shaft or club. My spin rate was way too high. I am now playing the Callaway X2 Hot Pro with a heavier, x-stiff shaft and absolutely love it.
Bottom line, if you need the higher launch with plenty of distance and forgiveness, G30 hybrids and irons are a great choice. If you are a better player with higher swing speeds, look elsewhere or at least make a drastic shaft change.
