    Yeah but keep in mind that 4 yards is not my total distance.

        So.....I have a 3 hybrid 21* club and a 22* 4i. These sit between a 14* 4 wood and a 24* 5 hybrid . The 4i is used only to get a shot that needs to stay below some tree branches. I could probably do the same with my 5i.

        I will usually use the 3 hybrid when I need something between the 4 wood and the 5 hybrid.

        Any point in my considering a 7 wood?

        I also cannot hit a 3 wood or 3 iron.

          Your 14* "4-wood" is actually a weak 2-wood or strong 3-wood, baased on its loft. A 21* 7-wood would negate your 3 hybrid. If considering a change, add a 16.5* or 17* fairway metal which is a four wood.

            So sorry, my mistake. My 4W is actually 17* not 14*. I am quite happy with the progression on lofts from the 17* 4W, to the 21* 3 hybrid, and the 24* 5 hybrid. Among them, they offer me some really solid and distinct choices on club selection.

            But...trying to refine my original question....If both the 3 hybrid and 7 wood are the same 21* loft, what would be the differences between these two types of clubs and in view of those differences, is there any reason to prefer one over the other?

            Any insight appreciated.

              3 hybrid is more upright than than a 7 wood which can produce more hooks - 7 wood would be longer by an inch or so - and the flight of the 7 wood would be higher

                Thanks for this. For someone who tends to slice, that might not be a bad thing.

                  You should hit the 7-wood slightly longer than the 3 hybrid, usually 7-10 yards, primarily because of the longer shaft.

                    Thanks, makes sense. I am not in a big rush to go there just yet as I am doing OK with the 3 hybrid. Would be nice to be able to try one out though.
