New Hybrids or wait?

Hi, currently play 11yo Cobra Baffler Rail hybrids. Want to upgrade. Also play my 10yo Mizzy MX200 irons. Financially, would only want to upgrade my woods first, especially since I love the feel of my irons. My question, obviously I would be fit to replace the 3 and 4 hybrids for my iron set. But in a year or too, if I were to afford new irons, would I have to get the same specs as my current irons, or new hybrids again?  Should I wait to replace my hybrids when I replace my irons? OR can I get hybrids fit generalized(lofts, etc) to be used with any new irons.?

I think I understand what you are asking.  If you replace your hybrids and then, a year down the road, get a newer, stronger, set of irons...would the longest iron and shortest hybrid have enough separation to warrant carrying them both?  It's possible but the simplest solution would be to not worry about it and use whichever club the situation merited.  It isn't always the case that distance, alone, is the determining factor when choosing a club.  

Anyway...good luck with whatever you decide to do.  I don't think you can go "wrong" either way.

A few manufacturers make complete sets of irons with hybrids included, e.g., Cobra. Don't know if you're ready to spend the cash or what you are looking for in irons, or what you HC is, but you may want to take a look at them. I have a pretty high HC, usually shoot in the mid to low 90s, sometimes higher, (but then again I'm 68 and have had three back surgeries, so...). 

I like hybrids so I purchased a set of Cleveland HB Launchers, 4 through GW. They are all based on a hybrid design, really like them but they are not for everyone that's for sure.

Have fun with your search and I would recommend you not rush into anything.

    • I was always under the impression that once you declared a ball lost and dropped a ball, that was it. Once you declare a ball lost and drop another, the original is out of play.
    • This is going to hinge on some things. You “assumed” it went in the water, but did you have “KVC” - “Knowledge or virtual certainty”? How long did you search? After your search, did you have “knowledge or virtual certainty”? Most likely: You search, didn’t find your ball, and likely (in your opinion) thought you had that KVC. You dropped at the best estimate for where your ball crossed. You played the shot, as that was the ball in play. You found your original ball, but since you’d (likely) done the above, it was just another random ball, basically. It does tell you that maybe next time look “better” as you’d have saved yourself a shot, but it’s just a ball you pick up and ignore, basically, as the ball you substituted and played was fine. That’s all “most likely.” If you dropped a ball WITHOUT the KVC, that is a different can of worms. P.S. Here’s another topic about this:  
    • I’m going to try hitting balls while restricting hip turn in the backswing tomorrow. It looks like I am rotating them way too far at the top of my backswing. I think it will help my sequence coming back down. 
    • I chose the last answer because… I don’t really understand the “other sport” stuff. I love hockey, football, soccer… F1. My wife couldn’t care less about any of those. But I also don’t really care if she plays a lot of golf. It’s fine by me that she doesn’t, really.
    • What I’m asking is… make the biggest swing you can make with good contact, and keep trying to make it just a little bit longer and longer. If it’s a 1/4 swing for now, or 3/8, start there, and then push it.
