if you want a hybrid because you don't hit 3-wood well, that's fine, just find one that goes as far as possible and is further than your next largest club. People are so set on X hrbrid replacing X iron... it just doesn't work that way. You should design your bag around the ability to cover distance gaps AND ability to hit desired shots AND how playable each club is for YOU.
An ideal bag might have a driver, no woods, 3 hybrids, two SGI irons, 4 GI irons and a few wedges and a putter OR it might be a driver, 2 woods, no hybrids, blade irons, etc.
