I keep going back and forth between 5 iron and 5 hybrid. At my swing speed (85) the hybrid probably makes more sense, but my ego keeps getting in the way

Perhaps this posting finds you in Florida. We try and get down to Ft. Myers every now and again, friends in that locale. Alas, not to be this year. So still stuck here in the snow and cold. Anytime the temps get above 32*, seems almost tropical. One of these days, I'll get over to the golf dome on Opdyke. Last time there, spent the entire allocated time in Lee's shop yaking, never did hit any balls. Assuming your getting in a few rounds in if you're in sunny climes.
FWIW. no longer bag any irons below a 6. I've utilized several hybrids over the years, but seemingly didn't quite coexist with them all that well. I continued to try and persevere. Because us old(er) guys are suppose to be using them. However, last year began using a 9 wood, and it proved to be effective for the distances I was looking for and found it altogether easier to hit from rough or fairway. Higher trajectory than a similarly lofted hybrid, which I was after. A 23* hybrid had a tendency to roll through the green on approaches. Basically its a 160 -175 club depending on how I grip it and the swing effort. Plus, a 7 wood has been a stable in the bag for years. Then there is a 19* Cobra Baffler Rail H hybrid (picked up at a thrift store for $5) that I hit the snot out of. So go figure. As always, YMMV. Regards.
