GolfWrxers, do you use a hybrid or not?

Are you using a hybrid or still using the long irons?
I still use my 4 iron but use a Nike SlingShot Tour 21* to replace my 3 iron, just so much easier and versatile, especially out of the rough.

I tried a bunch of hybrids, found I prefer an iron-like hybrid rather than a wood-ish one, so I took out my 5-wood and tried the hybrid for about six months. Eventually I decided that the one I bought had too much offset, and now I'm using an x-tour 2-iron...which is essentially a hybrid iron compared to the rest of my irons. Very nice.

 

Now X-Tours are on my short list for my next set of irons.

i use a 15* bridgestone hybrid which is like a shallow fairway wood with a square face and no offset. i hit it further than many of the 15* 3woods i tested.. which had almost an extra 2 inches of shaft length. that obviously is my problem not those 3 woods.. as i feel more comfortable letting the hybrid rip. however i tested all the cally, taylor, nike, cleveland and sonartec hybrids and the bridgestone was the longest by a consistent 15 yards believe it or not. it's really a sweet club. great feel and suprisingly forgiving on minor mishits.

 

that said other hybrids i tested were not nearly as long. it definitely feels more like a fairway wood, thus i'm waiting for the 585h to replace my 3-iron (pending a test of course.. but that club looks incredible i can imagine what it feels like and the ball looks like flying off the club). the bridgestone will not be leaving the bag for years but i dont want to buy a higher lofted one as i'm looking for more of an ironwood to replace my 3 iron.

 

i have the fli hi I & II and i hit my 3 iron better. i need to reshaft the fli hi II with steel before i form a real opinion on those clubs but right now they're not in my bag. maybe too much offset on the II and the I feels a little dead to me although it's more reliable and easier to control than the II. hopefully the 585h comes out soon and i wont have to stress. not gonna buy anything until then.

Still hitting long irons, but will have a 21* ironwood soon for only use on our long Par 3s and maybe for when the driver goes arye.

 

Our longest Par 3 measures right at 200 to 210 yards but has a deep green. It's a 'tweener for me with either a 3 or 4 iron depending on how I am hitting the ball on that day and windage. I usually hit 4 iron.

I love my TourStage FUT Hybrids.

 

I had my best luck with a steel shafted 19*, which replaces my 3 iron.

 

I'm going to throw and Ozik hybrid shaft in my 16* and see what results I get.

I'm carrying a 20* 3H Heavenwood and a 3 iron. There are times the 3 iron is the right stick, low trajectory, under limbs, into the wind etc. But if I need 200- 210 yds and a soft landing it's the 3H. I could easily use a 5W for that but the 3H is more versatile fo me. I do take the 3 iron out if I want to carry the 60* wedge.

I've been going back and forth between a 2 iron and hybrid for a couple years now (had much more success with a 2 iron than 5 wood). Never could get comfortable with a driving-iron style or wood style hybrid , until my Sonartec Md. I've got the 19* Md as my 2 iron replacement, and while I think the 3-PW set up fits my game best, am definitely not ruling out replacing the 3 with yet another Md.

I still use my BB 06 3 & 4 iron since they are like hybrids anyway and are very easy to hit.

I have tried a number of hybrids and just can't get a consistant feel for any of them. I think I will go to a 7 wood and use that inplace of my three iron. Thant being said I have a number of hybrids for sale, cheap. LOL..............

I used a TM hybrid for about 3 years...I liked it a lot. I sold it because I've decided to boycott TM for various reasons...so I'm back to a 2 iron.

 

I'll likely pick up a new one this year though.
