So I have this club in my bag I cannot hit worth a bum nickle. It is a 4 Hybrid. I have tried to hit it correct, but I can't seem to get it straight. I hit it like a wood and it goes right. I hit it like and iron and I hit it way right. It doesn't like me. I'm thinking of finding a nice used Orlimar Trimetal 21° and be done with it. What would you do?

1) Identify a possible swing flaw
2) Try out other 4 hybrids with varying shafts. Try out 7 woods with varying shafts
3) Analyze results of step 1 and 2 then make a decision

i had this dilemna just recently. my friend has a 7wood that i hit unbelievable and so does he(he wasn't letting go of the thing), so i threw a cobra 7wood in my bag. i loved it, then i started to not hit it well. i decided it was time for a newer technology 7wood(atleast graphite shaft), or possibly an 18-22* hybrid. I ended up testing several 5 and 7woods and a few hybrids. i loved the nickent 3dx ironwood so i bought it cuz of the accuracy and utility of the club. if the 7wood works for you, go for it. if it fills your yardage gap and play into your game then buy one. but make sure you weigh all your options and test out a few different clubs that can help you out with your yardage gap.

Use whatever works best for YOU. It took most of us a long time with lots of trial and error to make up a set that fits OUR needs. You'll find your equipment is an evolving entity, just when you think it's all set, you'll find that one club that just does it a little better. Personally, I've never met a hybrid I like. That doesn't mean hybrids are bad, just not right for me (right now).

As Kenny Mayne would say, "A 7-wood? My Nanna has a 7 wood."

Wonder what Kenny would think of my 11 wood? Actually, I couldn't care less. It's never how and always how many in this game. I've probably won enough money with my 11 wood (and 7 wood) to buy a Hyundai. I love picking up the greenie money from the macho 3 iron hitting boys.

"11 wood? That's an old man's club...." "Shut up and pay the geezer."

I'd be interested to see how this works out for you as well. I've been considering adding a 7 or 9 wood to my bag or a hybrid club. Haven't tried any of them on the course yet though.

I'd say don't give up on the hybrid just yet. I am just figuring mine out (after almost giving up several times) and I'm finally getting the hang of it.
