Re: 19* hybrid, 19* 5 wood, what is the difference?

What I mean about weights is this, it's easier to hit a nail square on the head with a 16-oz short claw hammer than it is with 22-oz long handled framing hammer. But with practice, you could do both really well. Like the man said above, try both.
