Callaway Super Hybrid Review 2020

The Callaway Super Hybrid is unlike anything that golf has ever seen. This club is a true cross between a hybrid and a fairway wood. If you don’t enjoy carrying fairway woods, but you want the longest possible hybrid on the market, the Super Hybrid will be there to save the day.

The new Callaway Super Hybrid brings superior distance and ball flight to players of all levels. This club has had some rave reviews, and we had to try it for ourselves.

We hope this Callaway Super Hybrid review gives you a better idea as to if this club is right for your golf bag.

Features and Benefits

Player Handicap

The Super Hybrid is easy to hit, easy to launch, and incredibly long. If you are a player who enjoys any of these things, you could greatly benefit from making an equipment change at this point.

The one problem that some players have with this club is that it is a very low spin. If you don’t generate a lot of spin in your golf swing, this is one of those hybrids that will run forever once it lands. This can be a good or a bad thing, but it’s essential to be aware.

Since this option is highly adjustable, you can set it; however, you need to make it work for your game. You can adjust the face of this club to work as a neutral, fade, or draw to help if you struggle to keep the ball straight.

If you also have trouble with the launch angle, you will soon be seeing a much better ball flight with the Callaway.

Shaft Options (5/5)

The Callaway Super Hybrid is still being manufactured by Callaway so that you can get a variety of custom shafts.

However, the stock shaft, the Mitsubishi Tensei CK, is available in the Stiff, Regular and Light Flex options. This is a top of the line shaft that will work well for a vast majority of players.

Look/Sound/Feel (4/5)

You will likely not find a larger hybrid on the market. This club is almost as big as a fairway metal. It provides a huge sweet spot for off-center hits and allows some of the highest ball speed on the market.

For a club that looks this big, you may assume that it is also going to be quite loud. Surprisingly the Super Hybrid sounds just like an iron when hit.

The Super Hybrids have a great feel, but they are not going to allow you as much workability as a players club might. You will have a hard time missing with this club, but when you can get distance comparable to a 3 wood out of your hybrid, it is hard to complain.

Forgiveness (4/5)

The Callaway Super Hybrid comes in a 17 degree, a 20 degree, and a 23-degree model. You will find that the higher lofted hybrids have a bit more forgiveness than the lower lofted.

The 17-degree option is going to be a bit harder to hit than the others, but we believe it is still easier out of a bad lie than a fairway wood would be.

Price (3/5)

The Super Hybrid is expensive. Priced higher than almost any other hybrid on the market, you will be paying for that ball speed, but it will likely be very much worth it.

Alternatives

If you are still unsure that the Super Hybrid is for you, there are some other great options on the market right now that could be just as good of a fit.

We will warn you from the start that none of them tend to be as long as the Callaway.

Callaway Mavrik Hybrid



PROS

  • Priced lower
  • Just as forgiving

CONS

  • Not quite as long

The Callaway Mavrik is a new release that came out at the same time as the Super. This is a very forgiving club offered at a lower price point.

There is no question that the Mavrik is a long golf hybrid, in fact, one of the longest on the market, but it does not quite compare to the length of the Supers.

The flash face technology and jailbreak bars make this a really difficult one to miss. The shaft options in the Mavrik range from the Project X Catalyst to the UST Helium.

You can get this hybrid in whatever combination you need to succeed. It is available in 3, 4, 5, and 6.

TaylorMade Sim Max Hybrid



PROS

  • Priced a bit lower
  • Extremely forgiving
  • Long, and available in lots of lofts

CONS

  • Smaller club head that some may not like

Another brand new and high performing release is the TaylorMade Sim Max. The Sim Max has ball speeds that will compare to the Callaway Super.

We love that the TaylorMade is offered in so many lofts. It comes with the Fujikura Ventus Blue Shaft, and you will see some significant improvements in feel from the previous M6 version that TaylorMade has released.

The SIM Max has an ultra-strong steel face that the ball tends to launch off of. This is not an adjustable option, so you will need to choose a model that works for your swing right from the start.

If you struggle with hitting a fairway wood and a long iron, you can fill your bag with the SIM Max clubs and make golf much easier on yourself. With the twist face technology, TaylorMade makes it hard to miss with this thing in your hands.

Cobra Speedzone Hybrid



PROS

  • Priced lower
  • Very forgiving
  • Plenty of lengths

CONS

  • Not adjustable

Similar to the SIM MAX and Mavrik, the Speedzone is designed to help players increase ball speed.

The Cobra features the baffler rail technology that Cobra has perfected through the years. Regardless of the lie you try and hit this out of; it will respond and perform at a very high level. 

The Speedzone is not an adjustable option. The center of gravity is low, and in the center, so you will be able to get plenty of launch and forgiveness.

Overall the Speedzone makes some significant improvements on the F9 Speedback from 2019. 

Conclusion

The Callaway Super Hybrid is one of the highest performing golf clubs that has ever been made. To get fairway type distance from a club that is easier to manage and handle is genuinely remarkable.

If you are in the market for a new favorite golf club, this could be the one.
