I'm hitting my driver around 200. I hit my 4hybrid around 160-165 when I make good contact. I'm looking for a club to hit around 180 from the fairway. I haven't hit a fairway wood since I started (less than a year ago) because I made bad contact and it was a cheap club. Would a three hybrid work as well as a fairway wood or are more expensive fairway woods more forgiving? Any suggestions ?
3 hybrid or fairway wood

If you feel like your good or comfortable with your hybrid then its ok to go with a 3 or 2 hybrid. They aren't the same really though. From what I understand the hybrids are easier to get up into the air and are easier to hit out of the rough. The three wood is going to most likely have less loft so it will have a lower ball flight but be better off the tee. I have a 15 degree 3 wood and a 19 & 22 degree hybrid. If you play a courses where you would like something a little easier to hit off the tee a 3 wood is a good choice. Also a lot of guys are going to a 4 wood its kind of in the middle of your hybrid and a 3 wood.
