RocketBallz vs Ping i20 vs Adams XTD hybrids? Planning on ditching my 4 wood & using 2 hybrids. Thoughts?

I'm not normally an "all one OEM" type of guy, but I really love Ping, & nearly every thing in my bag is made by them because it just fits me.  However, these RBZ are really nice.  I have been able to hit them (demos at my club), & I like them a lot.  I am considering also trying the Ping i20's and just wanted some opinions before I drive 45 min to the nearest Golf Galaxy because my club doesn't carry them in stock or in a demo.  Since I am truly replacing me fairway(s), I think the RBZ sets up more like a fairway wood (bigger head, longer shaft), and I think thats why they seem to work so well in that roll thus far.  They are LONG!!!  Anyway, wanted some opinions from those that have hit / tried both.  Thanks!

I just picked up an i20 20* to replace the 3 iron. I tried the rbz but didnt like it as much as I liked their FW. Also tried the adams xtd. Really liked that stick. Ended up getting a 17* to play as a 5 wood. The i20 hybrid reminded me of the idea pro from way back. Really clean looking and not overly huge, and easy to hit. Just my two cents.

The i20 hybrids are very good. They are very forgiving and I even like the stock PX Black shafts. I was going to purchase the i20 3 to replace my A12 Pro (not forgiving enough) then I tried the RBZ. The RBZ 3 is my 215 yard club and it is so forgiving. Not everybody will like the RBZ but it is worth a try.

Well, and thats the other concern...  I'm ditching the 4 wood because I don't hit it as well as I hit the RBZ hybrids.  No matter what I do, I hit a low cut w/ all my longer shafted fairways, but seem to be able to shape the RBZ a little more.  I can hold off my follow thru & hit a little cut, or fully turn my hands over & hit a nice draw.  A lot of people complain that the RBZ are too big, but I think that's why I like them.  So, my concern is, will the i20's be as easy to hit?  Would probably go w/ the 17* and 20* if I go Ping.

Maybe throw Adams XTD into the mix too.  After researching this topic a little, I keep seeing comparisons between the XTD & RBZ.  I've never owned an Adam's club, but I am not opposed to trying a new OEM if it works.  Thoughts?

Sorry to keep bumping this thread, but Holy $h!t...  The XTD retails for $300 per hybrid.  What the hell is up w/ that???  Is it made of gold???

IMO the best hybrid on the market is the R11 rescue which is why most Tim guys use it. The rbz IMO is one of the worst hybrids ever. Out of the ones listed the i20 is the best

You can find the xtd hybrid for less new if you look.
