You say by your own admission that you arent a great ballstriker, (good striker to me thats clubhead speed of 110 +), hence you don't play or like the 1 iron.
i don't like the 1 iron either, i found they leak slightly left and right and are too unforgiving and a 3 wood is better than a 1 iron,
but i am mad keen on a 2 iron over a hybrid for my reasons listed previous...
