I'm off 6 and play the earlier Cleveland hybrids, basically the same. Absolutely love them, would never change ever.....had the bad shanks, hated my irons so I thought why not. Never looked back. I get looked at, a few sNopes here and there....but do I care, nope 😀 so easy to hit and great fun, especially after the shanks 

 

Curious if anyone loaded up on the XL Halo hybrids, 4, 5 and 6 and then added the XL halo irons?

I bought single irons through Carls. Only change was +3 grips, I got them in under a week (I'm about 1-day ship from Cleveland). The base spec is about spot on for me - I typically go +1/4" in length and 1* upright. Out of the box they measure that compared to most irons. ymmv

In the 4,5 and 6 the XL Halo irons are for all intents and purposes hybrids anyway, so if I was in the market for them I'd be inclined to go irons all the way for uniform results.

Curious why someone would do that given that the XL Halo irons are pretty much hybrids themselves? 

 

They are sorta hybrids but sorta not. I did just get the 5H and have 7i-DW. The hybrid has a longer shaft than the equivalent iron and feels heavier at the head (plus the shaft is heavier if comparing graphite to graphite). So they swing differently.

That's why I wouldn't mix them.

It's interesting as I still have G425 6H(30*) and 7H (34*). After one round and range session my initial impression is that I can easily go from Halo 7i to G425 6H. The Halo 5H is a tougher nut to crack, swings different than either the 7i or 6H (or by memory, G425 5H). Will hit the 5H again at the range and compare with my F9 3H but there are a lot of variables. I think I might not be loading the 5H well enough - it is stiff as are the irons and my other hybrids, but it feels pretty stout.

I recently got the XL Halos 5i to D and was thinking about adding the next long club. So is the consensus here that it would be better to just get the 4i instead of the 4H?

I think it depends on how you gap at that end of the bag. I'm going without a 4i/h club, as I think 3H to 5H ends up being a usable gap. I just didn't see enough difference going from 5 to 4, ymmv.

It all depends. I go from a 4H to a 5i, and the gapping is just fine even though the 4H is 22 degree and the 5i is 23 degree.

Not for me, don't actually want to hit an iron unless it's the sw which is really for chipping. I'm hybrid all

You can't go hybrid all with Cleveland Halo, they only go up to a 27 degree 6H.

Yeah, funny how that can work. I had 7i and G425 6H in the bag (both 30*) and they gapped well. No substitute for real-world experience.

I was hitting my hybrids well from the first swing. It took maybe four or five rounds to get used to my Launcher HB  irons, mostly because I was hesitant to give them a full hard swing. Once I did that and I got the distances dialed in I dropped four strokes off my average, which had been going up gradually over the last ten years. I know I'll never get back to the 8 hcp I once was, but at 71 I don't mind.

    • Sony Open Pics from January 11, 2022 Part 1
      I was able to get out to the Sony Open today to take a few pics.  I guess due to Covid precautions they kept the spectators pretty far from the players.  Also due to camera restrictions they've put in place, I wasn't able to bring the big lens like I normally do. Hopefully they'll ease up on the ropes and I'll be able to get more pics tomorrow!
