    Hey Ron, so below a 3 you are really talking more about degrees of loft. You can find lower lofted hybrids, but you may find fairway woods easier to hit. If at all possible, try to take some lessons and develop your swing before spending too much on clubs. Good luck and welcome to a great adventure.

    Hybrids are essentially a mix between woods and irons. The head shape is larger than a iron and smaller than a wood. The shaft is longer than an iron, but shorter than a wood. A hybrid will generally go further than a similarly lofted iron, and less far than a similarly lofted wood. Usually hybrids are not as strong in loft as woods. So a 3 wood is generally 15 degrees and a 3 hybrid would be more like 19 degrees. A 5 wood hovers around 18-19 degrees, whereas a 5 hybrid is more likely to be 25 degrees or so. In this case the 3 hybrid will not replace the 3 wood at all. The 5 hybrid would be not replace the 5 wood at all. However, the 3 hybrid may replace a 5 wood, because the lofts are so similar. Depends on how to player launches the ball.

    Generally speaking, 2 hybrid = 5 wood.
