This hybrid is smaller than the Super Hybrid, and in my book, that's a good thing. They say it's built on the same chassis, and you can see it, but the overall look is smaller. It lets you get away with alot. If you swing too steep, you'll make contact. Sweep too much, you'll still make contact.
For the first round of the year, I performed decently with it for the first real time in anger. It's long. Very long and accurate. Unaltered, it performs with a very slight fade to straight flight. I had Adams bend mine a little upright to make it go the opposite way (slight draw to straight). Stock shafts are 60g which makes the ball get up in a hurry and the length is pretty remarkable. My best shot of the day was a 179 yard strike with the 5i hybrid out of the right rough (soft, slightly muddy turf) to 25 feet of the pin. The best I could have asked for given that situation.
Overall a very nice hybrid. I say the best they've done still because I went away from Adams because they just started to look too funky. They've gone back to a more traditional look and gave a big technology punch to allow different types of hitters to use the same stick. I was very happy with it and will have these for some time.

but I do like the v3s and wish they didn't charge 200 bucks for one club if you are not buying the set. I did see one 7 hybrid in the very small head style that you can subsiitute and it is a 31 degree.

The V3 #3 is manufactured to play 3/4" longer than the A4OS so there's about 4.5 SW points covered. Via the manufacturer the V3 was made D0, the A4OS D1 so thats up to 5.5 SW points. 60 vs 65 gram stock shafts so that's near enough to 6 points. I wouldn't be surprised if the V3 had a lighter grip either. 16 grams of headweight is huge tho.
So yeah, at any rate you'd be looking at retaining the extra 3/4" length to have a fighting chance. You could look at shaft weight too, but that may be getting away from preference.
