because a pure swing that you KNOW is pure can still spray it within at least a 20 yard window - which on some greens means a penalty stroke. Then, as you start to hate the hybrid, you'll hate yourself more because you bought new wedges taking the hybrid into account. Now you're at the club max so you'll keep the hybrid in the bag and alternate between wanting to break it and loving it for the rest of your life, all depending on when it decides to screw you.
Just my 2 cents. . .
