KCee I think for the remainder of this year I'm going to give hybrids (3 and 4) a go. I've generally been a good iron player and my 4 iron is still a reliable 180 yard club, but it used to be a reliable 200 yard club. Haven't really noticed any diminished height or distance on higher lofted clubs, but I've definitely noticed it on the 4i and a bit on the 5i as well.
Never really gave hybrids much of a chance. The couple I've tried I've been inconsistent with, sometimes hitting them well, sometimes hooking them with a seemingly good swing, and sometimes not lauching well enough to get the distance needed. The Cobra 3h I have in my bag right now I tend to hit on a much lower trajectory than my old Zebra hybrid that I have the hooking issue with.
