What do you guys think?  I am in the market for a new club to sit between my 3 wood (Callaway Big Bertha Diablo 3 wood), and my 4 hybrid (Nike machspeed 24 degree).  I plan on using this club off the tee a lot because I play tight courses.  I also would love to hit it off the fairway.  The one thing from my experience is that hybrids are easy to hook.  What are your thoughts?  And suggestions on a club for a 8-9 handicap?

I have a hybrid in that spot but switch it out now and then with the 3 iron.  Still hard to beat the iron most days.  Pro's and con's of all three.  I still own a 5 wood as well but my course does not really call for the added few yards in the spot in my bag.
I go with whatever works best for your home course setup and the one you hit the best.

If it were me, I would get the same hybrid in a lower loft.

Or the 5 wood to match the Cally 3 wood.

Do you hook your Machspeed?  If not, there's no reason to suggest you'd hook the same club in a lower loft.

I carry a 19 and 22 degree hybrid combo.  I have a 5 wood at home that rarely sees the course.  I find the 19 degree hybrid a better option off the tee and and fairway.  It doesn't go as far as the 5 wood but it's more accurate.

I had a 19 degree hybrid and recently took it out to put in a 19 degree 5-wood.  the 5-wood is definitely easier to hit and longer.  only downside is it goes too high so if there's a tree blocking I can't sometimes go under. but that's probably a good thing, force me to play smarter.  so yea i'm happy with the 5wood over the hybrid.  got a nike sq dymo on sale for $70 at golfsmith.

Thanks for the info everyone!  I like my Diablo 3w, so I guess it will be the Diablo 5w.  Now just to find one...

I'd say it depends on everyone's swing... To me, a 5 wood is clearly the best option because it's way easier to get the ball airbone, but it depends... I do know that some prefers the look and the overall performance of an hybrid, and those are normally the ''irons player'' type.

It's your call !

Here is another thought for you......I went this route a few years ago.

Get a strong lofted 3 wood ( 13 degree) then a 4 wood.  It allows a nice gap for a 3 iron replacement hybrid.  The 3 and 4 wood option really comes in handy on a tight course!

I use this configuration often and also rotate a 2 iron into the mix depending on what course I'm playing.


Just my two cents.

I went thru this process about 3 months ago as I wanted a higher ball flight than my 19*h. I grabbed Cleveland launcher 17* fwy. Very good off the tee and the deck. I can work it both ways. It has been the perfect fit for me.

My setup has me
D - 230metres
4w- 200m
4h- 180m

Maybe look at their 5w but if u want a little more distance the 4w is a great club. I play off a 12.

i use a 5 wood.   it goes high, far, and very accurate.   one of my favorite clubs in the bag.  I've tried hybrids with lower than 20 degrees of loft and wasn't as consistent with them.

Thanks everyone! I really don't like the Machspeed too much.  Haven't played too much with it but it was a whim purchase and seems to be wrong for me.  Definitely gonna keep looking for a Diablo 5 wood to match with my Diablo 3 wood, and just go with a normal 4 iron instead.

I've played a slightly unusual setup for the past five years:  Driver, 14-degree TaylorMade TP hybrid, 19 degree Taylormade hybrid, then 3 through PW.  But that's going away; I just the 14-degree just isn't long enough (245 tops) and I just never liked the 19 degree much; not enough clubhead speed out of the rough and not enough difference between that and the 3-iron.

I'm probably going 'strong' 13-degree fairway (3) wood and a 19-degree (5) fairway wood.  I can always grip down on the five-wood to take something off it.

Do Not overlook a 7 wood either.

My setup is Driver, 15* 3 wood, 19* 5 wood, 22* 7wood. The 5 wood is 1/2 inch shorter than the 3 wood, and the 7 wood 1/4" shorter than the 5 wood. All have steel shafts except the driver... The 5 and 7 wood land in almost the same spot, but the 5 wood bounces and rolls out 10-20 yards, the 7 wood comes down very soft and rarely rolls when hit properly. 3 wood, I can get 240 out of it with a good lie, the last 30 yards of that are bounce/roll... Rarely I will swap out either the 5w or 7W for a 20* hybrid (steel shafted) which I carry about 205-210 with 5 yards of bounce/roll. I CANNOT step on this and hit it farther, it climbs ballooning and falls ten short. If I hit a low shot or a hard draw with it, I cant control the distance after landing as well, sometimes it rolls rolls rolls like a 3 wood....

Hybrids I either hit too high and they balloon, or I hook them. I can definetely see how someone who has a problem elevating the ball should use one, but I feel more in control with the small headed fairway woods... I go from the above 4 clubs to 4-PW (48*) gw 52* and SW 56*. Ballflight overall would be classified as mid-low.

Hope this helps somewhat. Just saying keep your options open, a small headed 7 wood is very similar to a Hybrid, aome people elevate them better, and I find they have better leading edges for handling rough....

they are 2 totally different clubs.  The 19 hybrid is 3 iron replacement with high ball flight.  If you want closer distance pick up a 17..much better gap.  If its windy hit he 17 if calm the 5 wood.  For long carries the 5 wood for tighter tee shots the 17.  Up to you.  I highly recommend the 17 personally.

I'd say go with the fairway wood but have the shaft cut down to hybrid length.  Best of both worlds in my opinion.

I agree with the 7 wood option, but ditch the 5 wood. I used to carry 3 (15) and 5(18) woods and 3 (20) and 4(23) hybrids. Overkill.

The 21* 7 wood easily replaced the 5 wood and 3 hybrid. A full rip and it isn't much shorter than the 5 wood. Choke down an inch and it is the equivalent of the 3 hybrid. Simple.

Annika dominated the LPGA with a 7 wood for many, many years.

I am waiting for the 910 fairways to come out.  I am going to go with a 19 degree fairway wood so I can play it at 20.5 and keep the 3 wood in the bag or play it at 18.25 and take the 3 wood out depending on the course and wedges needed.

To my mind there is a 2 club gap between 3w and 4h.  Here's my setup:

Dvr - 10.5*x46"
3w - 15*x43.5"
5w - 18*x43"
3h - 19*x40.5"
4h - 22*x40"
5i - 25*x38.25"
//
10i - 43*x36"
SW - 55*x35.5"
LW - 60*x35.5"

I have never had to much luck with a 5 wood, so I've been using a 19* hybrid for the last couple of years and it's worked well for me.
