I figured that's what you meant.

There are other factors at play that I am now aware of which are that my old irons had way to much spin and the launch angle on the hybrids is much better than my old 4 iron. The proper comparison is probably a new 4 iron in my set which i would probably hit about 200ish but I still am choosing the hybrids every time.

Cool, I'm glad you were able to get a genuine improvement.

That......is......hilarious! Kudos sir.

I just don’t like the look of a Hybrid. I had a 2 Rescue for a while and never got comfortable hitting it. I can hit my 3 iron 230+ so distances wise I’m fine. I put it back in the bag and gave the Rescue to my son.

RE: Long Iron Replacement? Really?

I found that with the Burner 2.0 irons I didn't want to hit the 4 or 5-iron. I agree that's 24* or lower is better suited to a hybrid.

I'm far from a consistent ball striker but I had more success with a 3-5 iron than I have had with a hybrid of the same loft. I also see a lot of people offering comments and statements that don't always indicate that hybrids are that easy to hit. Some people seem to really love them, but others seem to have as bad of luck with them as a fairway wood.

Some people have trouble hooking hybrids. If Hs are the only clubs they hook, they might...

  • Try a heavier shaft. RBZ hybrids, for example, test out about a half-flex softer than the shaft indicates (see Second Swing review).
  • If the head is standard, switch to a pro/tour head which has less offset. A couple of years ago, I did quite well trying out Callaway and Adams pro/tour hybrids with an R shaft. The versions with standard high offset heads, however, delivered mostly pulled or badly hooked shots.

Don't make me go all Al MacInnis on you.
