    Help with Decision

    Looking for some advice...

    I currently have a Driver, 3 wood, 4i, 5i, etc.
    I am looking for something to fill the gap between the 4i and 3 Wood. Wondering if I should get a 5 Wood or perhaps a 3 Hybrid.

    I am leaning more towards the Hybrid as I believe it gives me a few more playable options.

    All suggestions are welcome. Thanks.

    Like you suggested, you'll probably find the 3H more useful.

    I use a 7-wood to fill the gap between 3-wood and 4-iron. It gives a higher trajectory than a hybrid, and it is still good to hit out of the rough.

    I carry a 7 wood also and love the ease of hitting from any type of lie .
    I haven't found a good 3 hybrid that i would carry as an equivalent yet , and although my 4 hybrid is fine to hit it can be quite temperamental out of the rough

    Another vote for the 7 wood to fill that gap. I simply adore my 27 and 24* hybrids to transition form my 6i. I should point out that the Wishon hybrids I use have a .335 hosel and not .370 like most other hybrids. This allows for more options on tip flexibility and will promote a higher trajectory. I have a 21* hybrid but much prefer the 7 wood option.

    A lot of people simply can't hit hybrids so a 9w/7w option usually fits the requirements.

    I miss my 7 wood. Hybrids have always been love/hate for me, though that's what I'm gaming right now.

    Check out this link from my favourite YouTube channel, TXG. Ian Fraser is a world-class fitter that is based out of Toronto. Iíve spent countless hours watching fitting videos online and for my money, they offer the best content out there.

    This video touches on your question. Not sure if your game, swing and launch characteristics are the same as the player that they evaluated but the thought process for gapping will be the exact same for you.

    Enjoy the channel if you havenít already discovered it. Itís awesome!!

    I wish I had his launch conditions.

    Good to see another TXG fan on board here.
