I have a 3H, want a 4H and 5H - should I get the same make/model?

I have a bit of a dilema.  I'm a high handicapper, but am starting to figure things out (play a stretch of 4-5 holes close to par, making a few birdies here and there, but fall apart 2 or 3 holes a round). One of the things that I've "figured out" is that I love love LOVE my Cobra Baffler T-rail 3H.  Easily my favorite club, and I consistently hit it the same distance (185). I have Ping G20 irons and my 4i and 5i are very inconsistent. I'd like to get a 4H and 5H to replace them. My assumption is that it makes sense to get matching Cobras, right? Problem is that I'll have to hunt around used club sites to find them in a stiff flex.  Is there a benefit for hybrids to be the same make/model? If not, I'll just test drive some clubs at the local Golfsmith and PGA Superstore to see what fits.

I have the Cobra Baffler T-Rail and I wanted another hybrid, I brought the Cobra AMP Cell hybrid and love it. I hit it as well as my Baffler T-Rail, really can't tell the difference. I would just question your wanting all these hybrids so close together, a 3, 4 and 5. I would forget the 4 and just buy the 5H. Unless you are that good I don't think you will know the difference between the 3 and 4. Just my opinion.

Good to know about the AMP cell. As far as wanting a 4H and 5H, my distances are actually pretty consistent for 6i through SW and my 3H (direction and too frequent thin shots are killing me). I figure if those distances are consistent, a 4H and 5H would be too. Think I'll try a 5H first though just in case.

I have the X 2 Hot hybrids and they are the best ones I've ever hit. I know they are expensive but they are worth every penny. I purchased the 3 & 4 and I absolutely love them. I golfed Saturday for the first time with them in my bag. They are just so user friendly I promise you won't be disappointed.

I have a mix of hybrids.  I don't match at all.  Taylor Made Burner 3 (much older than the rest) and a Cobra AMP 3, Callaway Warbird 4 (my favorite), Calaway Xhot 5, Adams IDEA a12 2.

Love hitting my hybrids off tee's on shorter holes, and 2nd shots on par 5s.  Just love my hybrids period.  They make the game more fun for me

    • So as some my have read my wife bought me two Edel Wedges for Christmas.  I got a 62 and a 56 degree both 1.5 inches longer than standard (to match my one length irons) and with the driver grind at 22 degrees of bounce. So, granted, it was one round, but I got a number of shots with both.  The 56 I use for pitches of between 30 yards to 80 yards and the few shots I had with that were fine. Where I really noticed a major difference was with the 62 degree.  I had one shot from a soupy fairway from about 15 yards off the green that I had to hit a floppy shot on.  Normally with that soupy fairway I don't think I would have gotten my old lob wedge through it well enough.  With the driver grind and 22 degrees of bounce I was able to hit a fairly good shot (given the lie) that wound up about 9 feet from the hole (not bad for me).   I had a better shot hole 12 that was about 18 yards from the hole and in the rough (still kind of soupy) .  I didn't want to take a chance with it lob so I hit nor of a left hand centered chip shot.  I thought I hit it a tad too hard (usually with my old wedges if I flew a chip to the hole it would bounce about 15 ft past) but this shot litterally landed a foot in front of the hole spun REALLY hard and kissed the flag stick (if no stick it would have went in) then stopped a ft from the hole allowing me to save par. I normally would have though I got lucky with contact but the next hole I hit my approach halfway up the green which was a good shot but it proceeded to spin backward and roll off the green.  I then had a 25 yard chip from the fairway and hit the chip again it right at the flag and lands about a foot in front of the hole SPINS HARD again and kisses the flag stick while stopping again about a foot from the hole allowing me to save par again. I guess this could also only be because they are brand new or not but so far I'm able to get a good amount of spin on my chips I wasnt able to before.  About the only negative so far is that I'm kind of hesitant to practice with them for fear of the milling being prematurely worn off and losing the ability to add so much spin.   Oh also I went to the range and practiced a few sand shots with the 62 degree.  It makes normal sand shot (with drier raked sand much easier).  The problem right bow is that no sand on the course is raked so tried using it to hit out of unranked soupy sand and I've cone to the conclusion that a normal sand shot isn't possible for me (even with the edel).  I kind of worked out that I can open the clubface and sort of hit a chip trying to get ball and sand at the same time.  That seems to work. Anyway.  My opinion so far with these wedges is that it was money well spent!
    • I finally got a video of my Zip Navigator rolling through what passes for the rough at the Grandview Golf Course today. It might have been easier to get a video of it underwater with a snorkel given the conditions here lately! Anyway, I think it does OK in the rough though I can't imagine why I would want to run it there as a matter of course... It does bounce the clubs around in the thick stuff as you can probably hear. I'm pretty happy with it overall. It seems to have the most trouble in very wet, muddy grass if it's got any speed on. The wheels spin like a truck stuck in the mud. I've found it works best if I slow it down and let it crawl through the goop. I'm glad to be walking again.  
    • 😜I foresee 27 shanks in your next three rounds. 
    • Day 13 - back to the indoor practice putting mat.  Mainly used the white line side (has the smaller hole cutout in the ramp section) to focus on keeping the ball going straight - worked from 3' - 6' distances in 1' increments.  Goal was to make 8 in a row at which time I could move to the next distance back.  IF, which was more the case, I left the line and missed the cup more than twice I had to move back to the next shorter distance.  Really forced the focus to be on making sure the backswing and follow-thru were equidistant from the starting point, keeping the head steady and having enough swing to sink the ball and not blow through.  Tough exercise but rewarding when I could "hear" the ball fall.
