I carry a Titleist 913 17 (16.25) and 21 (20.25) degree hybrid in my bag (both are turned down -.75 degrees). Hybrids are more versatile for my game and the type of courses I play. I dont carry any fairway woods either, I just use my 17 degree on short holes when driver isn't needed. It works for me, 240 yards off the tee and 230 yards off the deck.

None. See my signature for my clubs.

I'm in the 0 hybrids boat. For some reason I just can't hit them. Will stick to my 3 iron!

You're right, they're versatile. Even though it flies high I'll use my hybrid for a low knockdown punch shot or stinger from time to time. The forgiveness it shows is remarkable, I'll punch it out 170 and just watch it run, knowing if it was a 3 iron it wouldn't be that forgiving. Can't argue with that.

Sorry to rehash an old thread but this is a constant battle for me. My 23* 4H is absolute money. My 5W only goes 10 yards further on avg (185 vs 195) and is mishit much more often. I've owned a few 3H with little success and sold them on eBay. I resigned myself to the fact that my SS (low 90s with driver) makes hybrids less than 20* difficult for me.

I got an RBZ 3W for xmas this off season and can (pardon the language) smack the shit out of it. My hits off the deck aren't always forgiving but get plenty of distance. I was able to get an 18.5* RBZ tour hybrid off eBay for 20 bucks including shipping. It should arrive on Tuesday and I have high hopes for this club. Im very happy with my 3W and very happy with my 4H but theres a gap in there (185-215) and im having trouble finding the right club. THis club will be huge on par 5's/long par 4's/long par 3's...my Cobra Baffler 5W has had some decent days but I love my hybrids and my RBZ 3W and are hoping this will be the answer for distance with decent forgiveness.

Let us know how it goes.  I use a 3H and a 4 Mizuno Fli Hi, which is an iron hybrid.

You asked for it boogie...

I haven't been able to play for a week but I was able to get a range session in today. Bottom Line: THIS CLUB (RBZ Tour 3H) IS A EFFING BEAST! I'm still cautious of the "hot new girl in class" effect but compared to my 5W I have NO anxiety hitting this club. I'm not a long hitter but this seems like it will fit that 185-215 gap perfectly. I was carrying range balls 180 with a penetrating ball flight that got a TON of roll.

Another thing to note: I usually play regular flex but have gained some swing speed (currently about mid 90's) by shortening my backswing and follow advice on my MySwing videos. MUCH more consistent contact but a higher ballflight that is robbing me of some distance. I've always been told to err on the side of weaker flex but this was a stiff flex and gives me a much more penetrating medium ballflight. I know the right answer is to get fit but I'm on a somewhat tight budget/free time right now. Either way, this club gave me a GREAT first impression and I can't wait to try it on course. Bye Bye 5 Wood.

I have 2 in the bag, Tour Edge Exotics X-Rail 3(20°), 4(23°)

Sometimes I only have 1, but lately it's been 2... May end up being 4... If I can find an X-Rail 5h in stiff...

None.  I've spent years looking for a hybrid I don't hook the crap out of.  I have no issues hitting a nice high 3i off the deck, once that becomes an issue I'll begin the hunt anew.

I had a similar problem the first time I got my hybrid years ago. The problem was I was setting up and swinging like it was a wood, not an iron. Once I got over that it's been amazing.

I was overpowering the club and getting hooks. Now I love it. I was overly aggressive on the handle.

Sorry for the late reply but just joined. I carried 4 (1-4). Adams Pro Prototype Yellow with "By You" Shafts. Used the 1 off the tee and others to cover various distances. Beautiful flight pattern and workability with the right shaft and flex!! Stayed away from the long irons and driver due to numerous leg surgeries so these worked best during that time period. Also gave me the opportunity to hit them until I could accurately and with confidence. The sound when flushed will stick with you. Now I carry the D, 3w, 5w, 4h, 4-9i, pw, aw, 56, 60, and sometimes a 64 now that I'm back playing.

Ready for this?

This is my entire bag...

-40* X9 Extreme Hybrid (95 yds)

-34* X9 Extreme Hybrid (115 yds)

-28* X9 Extreme Hybrid (125 yds)

-22* X9 Extreme Hybrid (140 yds)

-Cleveland Mashie 5 Hybrid (155 yds)

-Cleveland Mashie 3 Hybrid (170 yds)

-Cobra Amp Driver (I can hit 220 on a good day)

-Taylormade Monza Corza Putter

Summary: 1 putter, 1 driver, 1 wood, 2 wedges, 6 hybrids

I got sick of trying to hit 6-PW consistently so I replaced those irons with a few hybrids and have been playing MUCH better and actually enjoying golf!

I'm upset with both my Adams V4 and TaylorMade SLDR #4 hybrids.

For the time being, they're benched in favor of my new Nike Vapor Speed 4i. (I will use it mainly as a driving iron).

My 7W now functions as both a FW and a hybrid substitute.

I'm curious to see how many hybrids everyone carries these days.  I'm "re-tooling" my arsenal.  Thinking of just eliminating the 3 & 4 irons completely, replacing with a 3 & 4 hybrid.  I basically will be carrying driver, 3W, 3 hybrid, 4 hybrid, 5-p/w, 2 wedges, 56 & 60.   Just curious of your thoughts.  Thanks.

That's often what I carry ... my 3h is actually 18°, which Nike calls a 2h.   I think a 5 iron is a good iron for most of us to start with ... hybrids below that is fairly common.

    • Just no.  It hasn't happened that often to me.  When it has, I look at the ball, and come to the conclusion that it just means I have to focus, and make sure I get the ball first, without much room for error.  Sometimes I do, sometimes I don't.  But that's normal for me anyway!  The most recent that I hit went well, and and a guy I was playing with even remarked on how good the shot was.  It's just another challenge.  Like the one tree that always gets in the way!
    • I hold it closer to the end. But I agree these are harder to get on.
    • Me neither (with other Pure models), until now. I think with a little more careful technique it's not a problem. I was accustomed to the grips just blowing on/off quickly without having to pay too much attention, except for getting the alignment correct and stretching to the length you want. I made a short clip of removing the grip from my 4-iron, and you can see after a couple bursts there is a point where the top wants to start ballooning (4 seconds in), and if I wasn't careful with the bursts, it might have blown up (pardon the messy garage).  
    • Wow. I've never had that happen. Like, ever. 🙂 I just took the Combos off five of my irons without any issues at all.
