This is my first tee post, no jitters. :)
I have a Nike hybrid that never found the course with me. I should never have bought it in the first place but a sale at GolfTown got the better of me and I just bought it off the rack without regard to the loft or fit. I hit this thing way too high and I hit my 4 iron just as well.
I used to hit a 1 iron at my old home course, same thing, it was my go to club to hit the fairway on tight 4's and some 5's.
My home 10th was the primary reason, 260 yards to a hill. 3 wood flies the hill (the hole is downhill) and the bottom was always wet, always. You could get caught on the down slope also.
The whole course was full of mid length par 4s where even a 3 wood could have been too much on some of the holes and a 3 iron leaves too long an approach.
I tried a 2 iron that matched my set but never got the feel for it. A new one may find its way in my bag sooner rather than later.
The only problem I had with the 1 iron was putting that extra bit of oomph into the shot. It really needed a nice, easy swing. That little bit extra had me push it or fade it, or both on a bad day.
