Switching out 4i for hybrid

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I know it doesn't matter, but it's a bit of a blow to the ego. I can hit my 5i and up fairly consistantly and well most of the time (when I've been practicing...). Recently got a 21* 913H to replace my 3i and I hit that well too. My 4i however is a damn mess. At the range I flush 1 out of 5 balls. Because of this, I really only use my 4i for punches under trees.

Being a fairly fit 30 year old, I feel like I should hit this club, but I'm considering swapping it out for a 23* 913H.

Any other younger dudes who've done the same? Happy?

If I could wear a pink tutu and hit the ball better I would.  What was your question again?

LOL... That actually made me audibly laugh...

Dude... I'm 31, and I carry a *bleep*ing FIVE-hybrid...

The emotions you're experiencing are one of the biggest mental barriers to amateur golf success, i.e. the poorly-inspired desire to "man up." These same neuroses also lead to things like swinging too hard, buying stiff shafts when regulars will better suit your game, using a Pro-V1x when any mid-range ball will work just fine...

In other words: don't worry about it! If it helps your game, do it. Even if it means wearing a tutu...

Lol. Fair enough.

I know I should, and chances are very good I will very soon. Guess my only question is whether there's any downside to hybrids compared to long irons (e.g. If by some miracle I did learn to hit a 4i well). I can't think of any...

The only real downside is not being able to keep it low with most hybrids. I don't think you bought one to keep it low though.

Lose the ego and go with whatever makes this game easier.  My irons are pretty much a set of hybrids (hollow irons) and I couldnt be happier with them. 

Sure, Id love to have a set of forged blades but for right now Im loving the distance and launch of my MX-1000s.
