Looking to possibly pick up a 17* G15 hybrid to fill the gap between my 20* hybrid and 16* 3W, especially for those long par 3's and long par 4 approaches.  3W has been too erratic and 20* hybrid too short.

Anyone have success with the 17*?  I'm a little concerned that a mere 3* loft difference in hybrids would not produce noticeable yardage gains.  Heck, might even go back to the trusty G15 4W.

Ping i e1 4-U w/ CFS
Ping Glide 54*ws / 58*ws
Ping Redwood D66 @ 35.5

Funnily enough I posted this yesterday in another thread:

"I actually did this, I have a 20 degree G15 (play irons from 4I down) and really like it. So I assumed I'd like the 17 degree as well.
Wrong. Just haven't got on with it. Was killing time before a flight at Golfsmith on Sunday, was hitting a used i20 17 degree hybrid and loved it.
Subsequently taken it (after purchase! I didn't steal it) to a grass range and am hitting it well. Will be playing rounds Sat/Sun to see how it goes when used in anger :)"

Like you I have a 3W (15) and the G15 Hybrid (20), so I thought getting a 17 made sense. I found it to be much different from the 20. Maybe I did not give it enough of a chance, but I had assumed it'd just be like the 20 degree, but 3 less. Now with the i20, I hope to be much happier with the swing and the results.

"I don't agree 100% with your analysis.  Yes, it's nice to hole out, which I did twice during last weeks game, but didn't need either to win those holes or the match.   All that was needed was a tap in to win each hole.  Of course, I was aiming from 20yds and 15yds with the intent to put the ball in the hole, but the expectation was tap-ins."
