Heavier, Iron Like Hybrids?

3 posts in this topic

I've been bagging Nike Sumo (squared I think) 4 and 5 hybrids for the last 3 seasons with some success. While I've hit them okay, I've never had complete confidence swinging them, especially under pressure. So, this year I decided to put my 4 and 5 iron back in the bag (although the hybrids were more like 3 and 4 iron replacements respectively). I've played 9 holes 3 times with them and have been hitting them pretty well. The misses are just shorter shots as opposed to the hybrid which was a massive hook, spray to the right or a top (a top!! wtf?).

So, I started thinking that perhaps the weight and maybe the head design are throwing me off. My 4 iron has a nice weight and I like the feel of it. The general consensus seems to be "swing your hybrid like a 7 iron". Well, it doesn't look, feel or swing like my 7 iron, so I don't know how I'm supposed to do that. I just can't think 7 iron with these in my hand. I know Mizuno made the MP Fli-Hi, but that's apparently discontinued. Maybe the new Mizuno H4 3 iron? I don't know if it's quite the same. Any suggestions?

you can also add weight stickers to the back or bottom of your clubs to increase the weight.  before purchasing any club i suggest you hit it on the range or in the store. at that point you might be surprised on a club that you weren't thinking of purchasing out performing your choices.

I went to dick's and golf galaxy to hit the MP-H4's, but neither had them in stock (although golf galaxy said they would be in this week). After some research, I determined that the MP-H4 in a 3 iron is just what I'm after. So, I ordered one in TT Dynalite Gold XP Stiff. Should take a week or so since it's custom.

Anyone want to buy a 4h and 5h Nike Sumo squared hybrid set in stiff shafts?
