A year ago I bought a nickent 7dx hybrid for a great price of $70. I got this hybrid because I was just unable to hit my 5 iron (2008 big bertha) effectively.
The problem I am having now is I have never been able to effectively hit the club off the tee.
I don’t often use a 5Iron, usually on long par 5s and long par 3’s.
I will say this club out of the rough is great, it glides and flies through it. However off the tee and fairway, the head feels oversized and heavy on the toe. This causes me to leave the club face open often and shank and slice this club more often than I should.
My 5iron (i-brid) does not have the pop that a hybrid has, does not have the distance, but I do not slice it. I have to say in the last year my irons and long irons have got better.
I keep telling myself I am relatively young (40) and should be hitting a 5 iron not a 5 hybrid.
But when I get 170/180 out I was not carrying a 5i the way I should.
But my 5 H is flying all over the place.
I am locked in with my 4H, but that is my 200y club.
Lastly the 5H is the odd club out.
My irons are all callaways
My hybrid-woods are taylormade.
The 5H is a nickent-so it feels different than everything.
I guess I am asking for advice as to when do you give up on a club?
When do you pull it from your bag and admit to making a mistake in buying it?
We buy clubs when one club does not work to our liking. Well when the replacement club is not a proper replacement, where do you go from there?
I am not sure if this is a question any longer or I just needed to type and think it out!
