Next club is a Ping G10 3-iron (I feel I should modernize this by obliterating the 3 on the sole and replace it with a 4)

These are the only hybrids I have ever owned.
I'm considering replacing them with a 4 wood and a 6 wood. :unsure:

2 Ping G models.

A 30 degree 6 iron equivalent is my club for 165-170ish, and a 26 degree 5 iron equivalent is my club for 180ish. Then I go to my 7 wood and 5 wood. And tbh if I was buying a new set tomorrow I'd look at replacing the 26 with a 9 wood.

Just 1 - a 4* Adams hybrid that is a joy to use out of the rough. Sometimes off fairway if I really need to just punt something straight about 185-190.

I do have a 200 yard problem though. Found that I wasnt hitting the 3 wood well off the deck, but was indispensable off the tee (bit rubbish with the driver). So I got a 5 wood, which I like, deck and off the tee. Hit the 5 wood about 215. But that meant no space for my 3 iron - which I used to love and hit 200. But wasn't the same after a replacement shaft. Tried a 3H rather than my 4 iron (190 yards) but so happens we have 3 par 3s of 180-190 and almost always need 4 iron on 2 of those. And I hit the 4 Iron much better than the 3H.

So I'm stuck between 190 yards and 215........

I have 3
20, 24 and 29

The 29 is not in the bag at the moment as it has been replaced with a 4 iron because I need a straight faced iron for shots in to the wind and knockouts from under the trees.

I have a 25* Cleveland which doesn't actually go very far, both my 4 and 5 irons travel further, but out of deep rough or really cruddy lies.......magic. Move the ball forward, move on.

I have 4... 26 (or maybe 27), 24, 21 and 19. along with 3 Woods (Driver, 2 and 4).
Headcovers abound!
Been a fan of Hybrids since Todd Hamilton's Open win, even using a couple of Sonartecs for a while.
I had a Sonartec 3 and 5 wood a while back. Part exchanged them when I changed to Taylormades, they were good though.

I have a two - 23 and 27. Replacing the 5 and 6 irons basically. I used to have a 20 one as well, but I replaced that with a 7 wood, which has proven to be a good decision so far.

Ah, Memories! I had a couple of Sonartecs 3 wood too - the SS03 and a NP99. Indeed, really good clubs. As was the TM V-Steel (a mate off 7 still uses 3, 5 and 7 and a Pro used mine until he stoved the face in) and a Tour Edge Exotics CB1 that ended up in somone on here's bag (I recognised the shaft), but not directly. More than happy with the pair of Adams XTDs now - 15 degrees originally, tweeked 1.5 degrees either way. That was during my 'Ho-ing' days, but FW was 1 club that was pretty constant (I had bags in both Scotland, for after work, and home in Surrey for Weekend).

absolutely!
i have 2 hybrids in my bag, too and they are my go to clubs. one 4-hybrid bent up to 24° for 170 to 180 and a 21° for 190 or an ambitious 200 yards though for 200 i usually use my 18° 5-wood. i prefer the higher, further flying, softer landing, more foregiving hybrids to long irons. if the fairways are dry and rolling i sometimes reintegrate my 2-iron in the bag for longer tee shots
