I do not carry one. I put one in my bag when I first started and could never hit it consistently. Would be a great shot every now and then, but most shots were terrible. I doubt I will ever use one again. My low irons are arguably the most solid part of my game, so I have no reason to carry one.

I resisted hybrids for a long time, but finally broke down and bought one today. I've been hitting my 5 woods really irradically off the fairway this year (ok in the rough) and never been consistant with my 4 iron, so I broke down and got a 3h Nickent Ironwood. Let's hope for the best!

I use five of the old Adams Air Assault Tight Lies fairway metal woods (3,5,7,9,11). Their faces are quite narrow in the vertical direction, so I think of them as 'sort of' hybrids. Does that make sense?

Yeah, I am starting to dislike my hybrid. I used to hit it pretty well. But now I get a lot of varied results. Sometimes I'll really hook it, others It'll be a huge fade. It's strange. 99% of it is my swing though. Rarely do I hit straight, however.

I'm off-and-on. My first set of irons was 4-P,S, so when I started deciding to have more in my bag, I got a 3-hybrid that I'm iffy about. I recently borrowed a friend's Nike 3-hybrid, and loved it, so it went in my bag - and I bought a matching 4-hybrid. But for almost a year in between, I was using an MP 3-iron.

I honestly don't think they're as bad as they used to be, which is why I have a 20˚ Mizuno. I went back to a 2-iron a few years ago after hitting hybrids for a couple of years. Didn't matter what I tried to make them do I could never get consistency. So I gave up on them until I tried this one. Very versatile. Good from the tee, the rough, fairway bunkers, even good to chip with. But until I found this one, I completely understood why people didn't like them.

I do and I dont. I change it up by weather conditions, or course. Windy days the 3 iron is going in the bag, clam days I take the higher flying hybrid out to play. I also switch between my 5 wood and a 2 hybrid for the same reasons. I have a 1 hyrid as well but hardly ever take that out because I love the 3 wood right now.

I haven't tried a hybrid, but I love my 2 iron and have no problems hitting it, so there's no incentive to upgrade. The courses I play encourage running the ball onto the green rather than soft landing.

When I eventually replace my olden-days irons, I'm going to have to get a hybrid because most manufacturers don't seem to make 2 irons any more

I played one when it came with the gi set I started with. A couple of months later, I went to blades and tried playing with the long irons that came with it and had better success. The ability to work it more seemed more valuable than a high straight shot. I do hit pretty high already so I didn't need the extra pop.

I hook mine like crazy. I hit my regular 3 iron a lot better.

I played 2 rounds with one when I was struggling with my 3 iron a few years back, and hit it even worse than my 3 iron. It has earned a spot in the garage ever since.

i always was pretty consistent hitting my 3i, especially off the tees. never hit woods well but hit one of my playing partners Cleveland Hibore woods and just absolutely fell in love. Went on ebay and bought a 3wood 5wood hibores. found a 2i and a 4i hybrid at a used sporting goods store for $30/piece so decided it could be a cheap test. loooove these clubs. i can hit them off the tee or off the deck or out of the rough. i can swing my 2i like a wood and sweep it and keep the ball pretty low to keep it controlled and i can strike the ball downwards like an iron and send the thing flying straight up. either way i hit it, it goes about 225. same with the 4i....have a pretty natural draw so i set up at the target and swing away...big sweeping draw that comes perfectly back online and drops like a rock from the sky at about 200yds. never liked hitting hybrids or woods before the hibores. my woods are the same brand/design as my hybrids so maybe thats why i hit them so well
