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

    • Your earlier statements included this: It’s false. And that video is ridiculous. The ball is basically smeared against the face, but it’s less so with wedges, and so I believe there’s more contact with wedges with these dimples. It’s based on physics. What you quoted (without quoting - please attribute material and quote it) -  says little about the basic physics, and what it does say it gets wrong. Like: This is not true most of the time. Again, given the same impact parameters, a firmer ball will have a higher ball speed and a bit less spin. Until the spin gets too low, that ball will likely fly farther. Softer balls are appealing because for some they generate a bit more spin to keep the ball in the air longer.
    • Golf ball compression is important because it affects the distance and control that you will gain on a golf shot. Your ability level will determine which kind of golf ball you will get the best feel and distances with. Firstly, on the low end of the spectrum it is possible to find low compression balls that create long distance if you have a slower swing speed. On the compression chart, these balls would often be rated between 30-70 and are ideal for beginner golfers or senior golfers. An example of a low compression golf ball in this category would be the Callaway Supersoft. Yet at the other end of the spectrum, you have high compression balls which mean you would have to strike the ball with more speed to achieve the same kind of distance. These types of balls, however, give the golfer more control over their shot, especially with their faster club head speeds that they are generating. These balls may be rated greater than 70 on the compression chart and are ideal for more experienced golfers. An example of a higher compression golf ball is the Callaway Chrome Soft and offers a direct comparison to the Supersoft. You can view more about the differences and similarities between these golf balls here.  A good rule of thumb which can be applied to knowing your compression level, is that golfers with a club head speed of 70mph should use a 70 Compression Ball. A golfer with a club head speed of 80mph should use an 80 Compression Ball and those with speeds of 90mph should use a 90 Compression ball with 100mph swing speeds indicating the use of a 100 Compression golf ball. By using a suitable golf ball you can make sure that you increase your average golf ball speed. In order to get the maximum distance possible out of a golf ball, it must be fully compressed. This is when the ball will be half flattened upon impact due to enough force being applied to maximize the compression. Golf Ball Compression: What Is It? [Complete 2020 Guide & Chart] (reachpar.com) Is that based on the wide variety of swing speeds?
