If one has a hybrid and a fairway wood with the same loft, and assuming that both you hit them sweet....is there a difference in distance?

I somehow remembered that FW gives more roll...but then if they same loft, that should not matter...rite?

appreciate any advice or clarity becos I am struggling with keeping up with the Jones's (aka Ah.Long-ness)....

I think FWD shaft longer than Hybrid. THats why FWD should be longer i guess. Hybrid is more to be a replacement for the long irons i think.

I am hitting my 15* Adams Super Hybrid as long as any 3 wood I've ever played. Having said that, I played my 15* Super Hybrid at 3 wood length (happened to get a tour issue with .335 tip size, so I put my 3 wood shaft in to too), it's just that the head is so much more forgiving and easier to play with.

But I do hit my 18* Adams Idea Pro longer than my 5 wood. And it is a hybrid set up (not 5-wood length) and I put a .370 tip shaft in it, too. 90-ish gram shaft, as opposed to my 5 wood 70-ish gram.

So I guess it depends on the players. How comfortable you are with your club's set up. My cousin is still hitting his 2 iron much better than I hit my hybrids...
