I don't see why the apparent distaste for substituting a hybrid or two for the long irons. Play what works. If you can't make the long iron do what is needed, then try something different. I used to play all the way down to a 2I. Now the longest iron in my bag is a 5I. One of my most used clubs is my 25° hybrid. It replaces my 4I, but it's also my trouble club from funky lies, my layup club on many par 5 holes (as I get older, I just can't reach them in two any more, so I play for my best chances now). I also carry a 22° hybrid. They aren't ridiculously long like with some guys, but I usually hit them fairly straight, with good height.
