    I did the same thing, dropped the 3w for the longest hybrid I could find. For me it was the Rogue *17 with a lower spinning shaft.

    Adams Black Super Hybrid 15*, 17* or 19*. Hits like butter and flies like no ones business. Plus you can find a brand new one between 30-75 bucks. I got a 15 and 19 degree. Took out the 3 wood a while back.

    I just made a similar switch. I went with a Ping G410 17 degree. I did a fitting at Club Champion, and tried the Callaway Apex, Titleist 818H2, PXG, and Srixon. The Ping won out for me.

    I'd appreciate if you share some additional details about your detail. Which one went the farthest? And in what shaft combinations? Thanks.

    What's the Apex look like at set-up? Does it look draw biased-closed, square or open in your opinion?

    I recently did a fitting out in Carlsbad and my complaint was my inconsistent yardage with my Cobra F8. The fitter watched me hit a few outdoors on trackman, and thought that the F8 hybrid's center of gravity was too high for a guy who sweeps the grass with his hybrid, which is me. He pulled out the Apex, which wasn't a good fit for me, then the Rogue. The Rogue was an immediate match for my swing. He said this made sense since the Rogue hybrid has a lower center of gravity. I went back and forth between the F8, the Apex, and the Rogue and it was about as dramatic a difference in performance as anyone could expect. My point is that our swings do play a role and need to be matched to the appropriate club, and that is why everyone swears by a different club as being the holy grail.

    Played my new Adam's pro minis again the weekend. Never played a longer hybrid also had no hooking issues. Nice fades all day. I tried to hook it on one hole and it went dead straight.

    here is my 20° behind the ball. Sits relatively open to my eye. The slot on the crown is a bit deceiving compared to the face though.

    If you are looking for a smaller, anti-left hybrid, try finding an Adam's super lsp hybrid. They were tour only I believe so hard to find but they should be dirt cheap if you do find one. They are bombers for sure

    Just a quick update on the Taylormade M3 H2 I purchased from a member. It came with a couple Stiff shafts(Diamana and Speeder) that were both too soft for me so I bought a Matrix Altus X and have used it once. Matrix shaft was a huge improvement for me as I prefer an x shaft. First round with it I had 265 yards over a creek and between 5 different traps(Pete Dye) and I hit it on the green. This was the exact shot I couldn't make it to the green with my 3H before. I missed my eagle putt but had an easy birdie. The M3 is NOT a hot club and honestly I don't feel the explosion or ball speed off face like I do with my Cobra Biocell. The Biocell just feels so much better and the quality is much higher imo. However, the M3 fits the slot I needed and I have already seen evidence that I can use it and feel confident on long Par 5s when my drive falls short(wind and wet conditions in midwest are providing zero rollout). My 3 wood with that shot would have been too risky and I would have been in a trap or out of bounds. My 3H would have come up just short of green and I would have needed an excellent pitch shot to get a birdie. I also used the 2H off tee on a short 310 par 4 and fell 40 yards short of green but in middle of fairway. Just a safe club to play with excellent distance. I am very happy with my switch and cannot imagine a scenario where my 3 wood makes it back into my bag.

    2019 Apex is longer than anything I’ve tested this year. Ordered 18* 2 flat, no issues with lefts and low spinning.

    Get fitted for a Henry-Griffits Praxis series. Great design, unknown by many but they are bombers. Has no offset — may even be a little face forward. More like an iron than a fairway wood. Doesn’t go left, does go long.

    The 1h above has a 12
    The 16 Apex came stock w 6g weights and my 19 4h had a 7g in it

    I saw the apex today for the first time. I personally thought it was dead square and I loved the lead edge and top line. It’s one of the best looking hybrids I’ve seen. For the record I don’t like how any of the Callaways look..(my preference not knocking) but this apex is sharp.
