Hybrid vs. wood distances?

10 posts in this topic

I am hitting my driver well,but on par 5 holes I need a long club off the fairway. I can NOT hit my 3 or 5 wood so I always use my 4 iron. I just picked up an Adams 17* hybrid 3 iron, what can I expect for distance? Will the Hybrid 3 iron be close to a 3 or 5 wood as far as distance?

I suppose it all depends on lofts and lengths of shaft but I'm going to say there's not way your are going to get even a 5 Wood distance out of a 3h. I believe a 2h is generally compared to a 7 Wood.

I thought that 2i = 5w, and since 2i = 2h the transitive property of golf clubs gives us: 2h = 5w

I couldn't hit my 3 or 5 fw either so I built a 2 hybrid in 15* with a Grafaloy Red . Its not as far as a 3 wd , but its accurate , easier to hit , and I'm usually a wedge away on par 5's.

Never hit a 7wd but I just got back from playing a round and love the Hybrid.The hybrid is shorter than my 3 or 5 wood but it is ACCURATE and straight. The way I hit FW's it is very beneficial for me to hit the hybrid even if its a few yards short it a lott better than a woods shot or topping the ball.

I agree. There is no way that a 3H will go what a 5 wood does. I have a Callaway 3H X with steel shaft (I really didn't like it very much and don't use it) and my Fli Hi 3. I can carry both about 190-195 and I can carry my 5 w about 210-220.

Since, with most companies, a 3 hybrid is to replace a 3 iron, 4 hybrid to replace the 4 iron, etc, the 3H should never go as far as a 3 or 5 wood. BUT, I too can't hit my 3 wood at all. Most 3 woods are 15 - 15.5 degrees and I did see the Cobra 1 hybrid at 16 degrees. I love my Cobra 3 and 4 Hs. Best investment I've made in golf. So, hopefully their 1H can replace my 3 wood, even though not as long by a few yards?

What worked well for me was taking my Taylormade Burner 3 wood and having it cut 1 1/2 inches. The inch & half brought it to about the length of a hybrid, but the head mass was still that of a full 3 wood that still produced excellant distance. The big advantage was that since the swing-arc is now shorter, the club is a snap to control and I even find myself using it more in longer grass that I used to before.
