Lower COG hybrid with same iron MOI?

Hello, is it possible for a hybrid to have the same head MOI as an iron but with a lower COG? Because I noticed swinging a 3-hybrid compared to a 4-iron with 1/2 inch difference and same DG S400 shafts (no hard/softstepping) and same club MOI, I can still feel a difference.
 

It’s like the face is resisting rotation on the 3-hybrid more than the 4-iron, and that has to be from a higher head MOI, right? So is there any hybrids that has the same head MOI as irons but still having a lower COG?

That's a tough one and would depend on what iron you're comparing them to,...but you'd probably have to go back to hybrid designs from the past.  For low COG and lower MOI, look for hybrids that have a smaller head size and shallower face. 

 

A couple examples are the Titleist 585H and the Taylormade Burner TP (2007).  The 585H is "moderately shallow" and the Taylor has an even shorter face height...definitely shallow and low COG

No it doesn't have to be.  In fact unless you have an extremely late release and fast face closure rate, it's probably not likely.  Although despite that, yes it is still a possibility.  When it comes to the golf swing, feel is frequently not real.    A more likely cause is that hybrids and irons typically have very different visuals at address (including face angle) and some people are very sensitive to that difference.   It can cause differences in the way one aligns and grips the club or play a wide variety of head games with the person swinging the club that can effect the swing.

 

But if it is MOI, I doubt you'll have much luck finding a hybrid that's close to a typical iron head.
