PostSubject: 5 wood or 3 hybrid?   Thu Feb 12, 2015 10:00 am

hi bros,

currently I have slot for one mroe club in my bag, and thinking of either 3 hybrid or 5 wood.

Currently hitting my 4 hybrid about 180 metres thereabouts, and next longer club would be my 3 wood, which is around 200-230 meteres depending on how well I strike it.

Also keeping in mind which would be easier to hit, any suggestions as to whether 3H or 5W would be more ideal...

Appreciate comments!

Look at the loft for your 3W and 4HY, and find something in the middle. My guess would be somewhere in the 19deg - 21deg range.

With that in mind, go hit a few clubs of that loft range and see which one you feel comfortable with.

If you like your current model 4h and are hitting it consistently I'd go for the same model with a lower loft. I did this with a Ping G25 4h (23*) and added a 3h (20*) to make up my distance gap.

No real answer to your question except to go and try. Everyone has a different swing and some of us even have swings that change over time. 

Recently I tried hitting a 3 hybrid I used to love (it is with my cousin now) about 3 years ago. But just could not control it. Swear by my 5 wood now, but who knows about the future. 

Think you should take the time to hunt, the process is very enjoyable in any case.
