NOVA Hybrid Irons

   Hottest Hybrids in Golf

After many hundreds of requests from golfers world-wide we partnered with David Lake (One Iron Golf System), to design a set of golf clubs that combined the playability of a hybrid wood with the inherent accuracy of an iron.  The result of our collaboration produced the industry's first true hybrid iron set.  Our NOVA Hybrid Irons are as easy to play as any hybrid woods on the market but, unlike hybrid woods, give you the ability to aim at the pin on your approach shots. 

Although hybrid woods are typically the easiest to play clubs in a player's bag  they incorporate the single flaw of all wood type clubs - bulge and roll built into the club-face.  For those not familiar with these terms, they relate to the curvature of the club-face from toe to heel and sole to top-line.  The presence of bulge and roll on a club-face makes it impossible to attain any level of distance or accuracy control that you would normally associate with iron play.  With a hybrid wood you aim to the width and depth of a green whereas with an iron you aim at the pin. 

NOVA Hybrid Irons have the flat club-face of an iron coupled with an overly wide sole to produce the low center of gravity typical of a hybrid wood.  They are designed for single-length play (per the One Iron Golf System): same length, weight, lie angle, bounce angle, sole width, etc. throughout the set, and completely swing-weight and MOI matched.

NOVA Hybrid Irons are shafted with a specialized frequency balanced graphite shaft (100% graphite) specifically designed to accommodate all swing speeds.  The result is a lightweight hybrid iron custom fitted for club length that promotes the sweeping style of swing that many golfers prefer.

The big distinction is that NOVA Hybrid Irons are just that – irons, which means you not only enjoy the playability and added distance of a hybrid wood but also the precise distance control and unparalleled accuracy of an iron.

NOVA Hybrid Irons are without a doubt the easiest to play, most consistent, and accurate hybrids on the market today.
