I have been gaming these RBZ hybrids for years now.  I usually hit them decent, sometimes really good.  But also sometimes snap hook the craaap out of them.  My golfing buddy who also has the exact same clubs, did some trackman fitting today and they did some frequency test on all his club's shafts...  came out of there learning that the RBZ hybrids in regular flex (my hybrids are only regular flex clubs in my bag, got them years ago... now a stiff).... tested to be more like a ladies flex!!  the guy was like, some of these stock manufacturer clubs put in these shafts and just slap a label on them to help sell them.

soooo i am assuming mine are probably pretty similar. and if nothing else, they are still regular flex and I am in stiff now.  so I am looking to replace my 3 and 4 hybrids.  

I am most likely going to go to a 4 iron and just replace the 3 hybrid.... thinking of going for a 5 wood rather than a 3 hybrid again.  I was always under impression when debating between a hybrid and a wood, it comes down to if you are approaching greens or hitting off tee box and what you need the club for.  Well, my 3 hybrid is kinda my 225ish club and I am rarely ever approaching a green at 225. ... When I hit this club, its usually on a long par 3 into wind or a tee shot on a tight hole where I am not hitting driver.  occasionally i use it on my 2nd shot on a par 5 though.

so my question is this.... do you think a 5 wood be the better choice for me? and if so, what is a good 5 wood?  I own a 915 3 wood and like it, thinking of maybe just getting a matching 5 wood or even 917 version.

What loft is your three wood? I took my hybrid out of my bags 2 year ago and went to a 5 wood. After hitting it about that distance of 225-235ish for a year or so I was really enjoying it and looked into getting a shaft and head combo I really liked since I knew after a year that I was going to go 5 wood instead of back to a hybrid. After quite a bit of testing I ended up going Epic heavenwood and dialing the loft down. I hit It the same 225-235 for yardage. Its a stronger then my 5 wood but the extra loft and the shaft length are allowing me to hit it great into a green and probably will not change until I break the shaft or head many years down the road. Really glad I took the advice of my fitter and tried it. It worth a shot if youve got a good fitter and different options to try.

I love a 5w over a hybrid.   To me it is easier to work both ways.  Plus if Im hitting it into a fast green the high cut lands soft.

I think my 3 wood is 15 or 16 degrees. Can not recall of the top of my head. I know my 3 hybrid is 19 though.  My driver is the epic and I like it. Maybe I’ll give the 5 wood a try next time I’m at the golf store.

I’m debating the exact same thing. I had a 3w and a 5w in the past and the issue I always had was choosing between the 3 or 5 as a safe shot from the tee.

Funny i've tried going to a 5 wood multiple times from hybrids and it has never worked for me. As you say, it depends what you want to use it for...for me I need that club to be versatile, and I prefer hybrids because it is easier to flight the ball down whereas a 5 wood went a little high.

One option you might not have considered would be to bag a 17* 4 wood (or a taylormade 3hl), then go 3 hybrid and 4 iron. That way you get more options at the cost of a few yards from 225+ but still keep all your wedges.

Ping G400 5 wood looks very inviting. Shallow face, easy to launch, great sound and adjustable loft.

But I still have a Cally Razr Black 5 wood and it is almost automatic for me. Hard to take it out because it is such a perfect situational club. Excellent for tee shots on short, tight par 4's.

The RBZ 3 hybrid always looks like a small fairway wood to me.  I play Cobra woods, so it's like an F6 Baffler or BioCell+, compact head and low profile.  If you're looking for an into the wind 5 wood, maybe a low spin low launch shaft would do the trick.  I put a Rogue Max in my Baffler for a similar effect.

I was recently deciding between a 2 hybrid and 5 wood. Really looking for a fairway finder on short par 4s. I played an old 980F 19* and recently changed to a 915Hd 17.5* (de-lofted to 16.75*)

After swapping back and forth between clubs at the range, the shaft length is the main noticeable difference. After hitting the hybrid for a few shots, going to something about 3 inches longer was tough and I struggled to control it.

Both go about the same distance so sticking with the hybrid for now because of this.

Thanks for all the suggestions.... I really do like my 3/4 hybrid.  I think I definitely would like to get rid of the 4 and put the 4 iron in the bag.  As for the 3, I think what intrigues me the most about a 5 wood is just because its a change. I like getting new clubs as much as anyone. But I will say, my 3 hybrid just fits my eye and I hit it solid. My main issue is the regular flex shaft (that apparently is more like a ladies flex).... So I may try and just throw a new shaft in it and keep it.

I really LOVE my HZRDUS shaft in my driver.  I noticed they make those in fairway woods and hybrids as well.  Maybe I could get one of those for my 3 wood and hybrid, throw in the 4 iron and be done.

  I eliminated the "choosing" problem by dropping the 3W (14.5*) and the 5W (18*) from the bag and replaced them with a 3W HL (16.5*).  Works for me.

I just looked, my 3 wood is a Titleist 915FD 3+ at 13.5 degrees.  from what I understand, I can adjust the loft about 1.5 degrees at the most?  So the most I could make it is 15 degrees.  my 3 hybrid is 19 degrees.

so currently I have
driver at 9.5
3 wood at 13.5
3 hybrid at 19.

I kept a 3 hybrid in the bag but adjusted a 5 wood down as low as the loft will allow it so it basically plays to a 4 wood. I found that my 3 hybrid @ 20 and my 5 wood (4w) @ 17 make for a really smooth transition and give me a decent gap between driver to fairway and fairway to hybrid. I can hit the 5 wood easily off the deck and get it to stop on some par 5's and it's long enough off shorter par 4's. For instance, driver carries about 275-280, 5 wood carries about 240 and hybrid carries about 220. I know some don't care for a 20 yard gap on the high end of their bag but for my home course, it's a great setup.

Just buy a Cobra F6 baffler 5w and forget the 3 hybrid. The baffler is about as straight off a club as I have ever hit, plus it is over a year old now and can be had very cheap.

RBZ stock shafts or TM shafts during that time were terrible - too light, too long in shaft length, inconsistent. They did a great job of marketing but it eventually caught up with them ...

I'd keep the head and reshaft, saving the 3 Hy for windy days; and get a 5 wd.

i think this is the route I am going to go. May not change out my 3 wood to a 5 wood just yet... but i will change the loft up to 15 degrees at least.  Playing here in DFW as you know, gets windy alot! i think the hybrid is nice to keep in the bag.

found a gently used, like new HZRDUS black 6.0 hybrid shaft on ebay... same shaft I have in my driver.  ordered it and should have in a few days. Going to throw that in my current RBZ 3 hybrid and try it out. If its anything like the driver shaft, i think i will love it and now want one for my 3 wood.

Was tempted to get a 5 wood, but at the end of the day I like my hybrid over the years. just want a new shaft more than anything.  I assume this will be easier to hit than a new 5 wood since I am so used to it and it will have a shorter shaft than a 5 wood (typically).

I love my 915 5 wood, it's been a revelation, I swapped from a 915 hybrid and haven't looked back.

My 3 iron is 22 degrees. The gapping works fine for me.

I have experimented with the same set up also. I much prefer the 3-hybrid over the 5 wood though

You may look into an Adams Super Hybrid XTD in the 19*.  I have one with a V2 86g stiff shaft in mine, and it might be the club I don't get rid of for a long time...or if I do, it'll be for another one in a different loft if I ever get a different set of irons.  Been in my bag for 3-4 seasons, and I get just as good of ball speeds as any new club that has come out during that time.

G400 SFT is the perfect 5 wood

I'm a handicap golfer in my 50's. Any opinions I have about golf equipment or professional golfers or the game in general should be taken as seriously as you would the opinions of a random guy in the fourball ahead of you who just shot 92 but is usually better than that.

Keep the hybrid...buy the 5 wood...and buy a 7 wood...then buy a 2 hybrid a 16.5 HL and a 4 hybrid....come to think of it...get a driving iron and a T16-MB long iron.......................try them all and drive yourself crazy...then you'll be a true GoflWRX'er!
