How do the low-lofted hybrids work out of the rough? Problem may be for average player who thinks any hybrid is a "magic club" you can hit from anywhere. A 21* might come out of the rough OK, but will a 15*?

If rough is really deep, sometimes it's best to chop out with an 8 iron.

I don't know the answer. Maybe those of you who use low-loft Hs can fill us in.

I am going to be replacing my three wood in my signature with a 16 degree Adams that is the same as the 18 and 20 in my signature. I hit them very straight and can work left or right. I just do not use the three wood at all and do not hit it nearly as well as these hybrids. Might be giving up 10 or so yards but who cares at that point.

Thats alot of closely lofted hybrids, you ever think about dropping the 3 wood and adding a wedge? I contemplated getting a hybrid to replace 3 wood but the length of the club made the distance less and more accurate but how many times am I really expecting to put the ball on the green from 250 out. I went to a 17* 4 wood which just wasnt enough, settled on a 16* 3 wood and so far so good

Yes...thought about that many times. But I really have not seen the need for another wedge like a 60 degree. My plan is to use the 16 degree hybrid off the tee when driver is not needed. I can hot a little bit more of a boring ball flight with it compared to the 18 and gain between 15 - 18 yards off the tee which will be nice. One thing I do know...I need the TM out of my bag. Bought it on a whim and I can't keep it from diving left...so it never comes out of the bag.

I just took my Cobra Comp 3-wood out of the bag so that I could add an extra wedge. I have had a 16* Cobra Baffler for about 2 years now. It is a great club, I hit it about 245 off the tee and 210-225 from the fairway or light rough. Very easy to hit.

its sort of funny that im revisting this post almost 3 years later....i cant belive how the time has flown by. i finally did end up going ahead and getting a 16 degree the other day (adams idea pro gold), and i must say that i like it. i didnt mind my 5 wood at all, but the hybrid is a little easier to control, which makes it the ideal club to pull when hitting in a par 5, or even off a tee shot that is real tight
