The hybrid I initially got was a 3h, but I hit it barely past my 4I. The pro with whom I work (sometimes) suggested that I try a 4H and suggested a Cobra brand. I hit the Cobra 4H about 15 yards past my 4I, but shy of my 5W. It filled the gap perfectly (my 4I expected distance is about 150 yards for an average hit for me, 5W average about 175... hybrid about 165 - and generally straight).
My 4I is also 23 degrees, I think. I have the lofts listed on another machine.
Essentially, it's a 3-Iron that I hit high instead of low and out of rough. It just has a "4" listed.
I'm very tempted to pick up more of the baffler series to replace the woods. I love 'em and can't hit my 3W well.
Now, I know someone who carries 4H and 4I with same distances, but different trajectories. But I can't claim that reason when my hybrid is so much farther for me
