I'm curious to see how many hybrids everyone carries these days. I'm "re-tooling" my arsenal. Thinking of just eliminating the 3 & 4 irons completely, replacing with a 3 & 4 hybrid. I basically will be carrying driver, 3W, 3 hybrid, 4 hybrid, 5-p/w, 2 wedges, 56 & 60. Just curious of your thoughts. Thanks.
How Many Hybrids Do You Carry?
Golf Gear mentioned in this thread:
I started with the 2H and added a 3H. Recently I started hitting the 3i pretty well so I put it back in and took out the 3H. If I need a higher softer shot I can choke the 2H and if I need something more boring I can hit the 3i. There is one course that I play that I absolutely carry the 3H because off the fairways is sugar sand waste areas and the 3H comes in handy. I never went past the 3 because I love my 4i and don't have any issues with it.
My sticks are in my signature and my wedges are 48-54-60.
Nice. Thanks guys. I guess I'm trying to figure out the "gaps" I might have by eliminating the 3 & 4 irons from my bag. Seeing more of this out there as well it seems. I've been blasting the new RBZ 3 wood, 3 & 4 hybrid probably longer than I would hit my 3 & 4 irons on a good day so I guess this makes sense. Totally have to re-calibrate my yardage now which should be interesting. Oh the buckets of balls.........
I had bad luck with hybrids the first time I tried them circa 2007. A couple of years later, I found Callaway and Adams models I could hit OK, but delayed buying them.
I carried a 15* 3W and an 18* 5W for a couple of years, and then dumped the 5W for a TM Raylor 19* trouble club. (5W tended to miss left, and was hard to stop).
I retooled this summer and have a RBZ 3W HL (17* - a 4W) and a 21* 7W. I also have an RBZ 4H 22*. I hit FWs just as well as I hit hybrids, so I still favor FWs because I need all the distance I can get.
I have flighted shafts on my irons, so I can get the 4i up decent as a driving iron on tighter holes... and 4i has lower trajectory in wind than hybrid.
