Another vote for the Cobra F6 and F7 hybrid. Excellent price and by far the best hybrid Iíve owned for flight, forgiveness and feel.

My miss is a hook with most hybrids. I have a try VERY hard to hook my F7.

I find driving irons go straighter and plenty high with the right shaft.

Mizuno MX-700. Incredibly straight and the most stable stock shaft I've ever played. Not too upright like many hybrids.

Total sleeper, ridiculously cheap on eBay.

I highly recommend the Cobra F7.  It is an amazing club.  It is pretty much point and shoot automatic.  The adjustability is really nice for gapping.  I don't plan on replacing this club for a really long time.

My G400 22* is the easiest hybrid I have ever owned. Sits nice a square and I don't ever worry about hooking it. It's been the perfect club for full approach shots into greens, punching out low under trees and I also chip with it around greens like an oversize putter.

I recently bought a Honma Tour World “c” model 7 wood (first time I’ve ever owned a 7 wood) and it sets up amazingly well behind the ball.  PGA SS has them on sale for only $129.  Perhaps a 7 wood is worth a look.  For the record, I’m a 0 handicap with about a 110 mph driver ss.  So i have the strength/speed for hybrids, but lately I’ve been hitting them low and the 7 wood looked so nice...

I have some Razr Hawks here which have been incredibly kind to me. Went through tons, these ones work. Cheap too.

If you want distance with height, try a TEE Exotics EX10 head with an appropriate shaft - the standard AD 50 is soft, go up a flex. I use a Tensei CK Red 70 in a PXG head - it's an excellent shaft for height, more spin, consistency. The EX10 head has a firm feel because it has a Japanese Alloy for more ballspeed.

Titleist 818 H1. In my experience it is forgiving, high launching and sits slightly open to the eye - definitely not a hook machine.

Question - when looking to replace a iron with a hybrid - do you go the same loft or slightly higher as the hybrid goes farther.  Any experience someone can share on this?

More loft on the hybrid because it goes further, at least in my experience
