Maltby KE4 Tour HDI Hybrids
The new and improved Maltby KE4 Tour HDI hybrid design is probably closer to what a real hybrid should be vs. hybrid designs that are more influenced by metal wood shapes. With a low and deep center of gravity, a progressive wide sole design, adjustable head weighting and a very thin high strength forged MS300 face material (with the added bonus of being able to adjust loft and lie), the HDI hybrid design is perfect for dialing in the exact distances and trajectories required by any type of player. Whether your looking for maximum distance or simply trying to replace those hard to hit long irons, you owe it to yourself to try one of these amazingly easy to hit KE4 Tour HDI hybrids. The KE4 Tour HDI hybrid also features a DBM (Diamonized Black Metal) finish that is chemically implanted and more wear, corrosion and scratch resistant than typical black PVD finishes.
New and improved for 2014, the KE4 Tour HDI hybrids feature additional loft options, deeper etched scoring lines, a slightly longer hosel for increased bend-ability, triangle screw weights and improved cosmetics.

Finally switched to a 3 iron hybrid
I finally replaced the 3 iron that I had recently had trouble getting a consistent distance with. I bought one of these heads and fitted it with a DG X100 shaft to match my irons. Absolutely a great move to go to this club. I'll likely buy the 4 iron as well. Very easy to hit. Ball goes high off the club face with the 220 yds I'm used to out of a 3 iron.

I needed a club that I could use to find fairways on tight holes. I picked up the Tour HDI 3 Hybrid, and I couldn't be happier. I hit the club fairly long, but more importantly my miss hits are not penalized nearly as much as other clubs I have used. I will suggest this club to anybody for an easy to hit, straight club. Highly recommended.

As a recent happy customer of the Maltby DBM irons, I decided to give this clubhead a shot. I needed something to go in between my 4-iron and my 3 wood.
Visually, the head looks like a wider 4-iron with more offset. But that is completely expected. Finish is exactly that of the DBM so I know it will wear well over time. The back plate is the newer version, as well as the weight. The weight is the new triangle version.
This leads me to my only negative, the weight was loose upon delivery. It would be fine if I ordered more along with the wrench. Sadly, the bare head comes with no wrench. It would also be fine if the head was modeled after the Adams design, but no, it's smaller. I tried to use a hex wrench but nearly stripped the socket.
Onto the most important thing, performance. I shafted this up with a soft-stepped True Temper X100 SL. I have soft-stepped X100's in my irons so I wanted something just a little lighter but with the same characteristics.
First swing, was butter with a slight draw. Second swing the same. Third swing I tried to hammer and hit it really thin, but still got in the air and drew, but landed about 20 yards short of target. Toe shots and heel shots are equally acceptable. The dispersion is great, only distance suffers. Feedback is great, you know exactly where you miss. Sound is also good, slightly muted, not at all clicky.
Overall, I'd give this an A, but only once the weight issue gets cleared up.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THIS "Maltby KE4 Tour HDI Hybrids" AND A CONVENTIONAL HYBRID? ?IT LOOKS LIKE AN IRON
The KE4 Tour HDI Hybrids are considered Hybrid Driving Irons (HDI). They do have more of an iron type profile, with a narrower sole than traditional hybrids, but wider than most irons. It is designed for those that prefer more of an iron look, but need the launch characteristics of a traditional hybrid to help get the ball up in the air.

What length shafts would be used on these, I intend to use Rifle Project X Steel shafts with Regular Flex on my intended purchase of Maltby TE Forged
Starting with the #1 you would use the 41.5" shaft.
1 = 41.5" shaft
2 = 41" shaft
3 = 40.5" shaft
4 = 40" shaft
5 = 39.5" shaft
You would also need to shim the .355" taper tip Project X shafts to fit the .370" hosel bore of the KE4 Tour HDI Hybrids.
The SHIMT is designed for this installation.

how much would a set of tour hybrids cost with shafts grips and covers
We would need to know what shafts and what grips you would want before we could give you a total cost.

Can you bend these 2 deg flat or too risky?
2 degrees should be possible. There is always risk when bending clubs, but the design and material should allow 2 degrees.
