    Re: 4 Woods?

    until you can hit them all 'properly', surely it just comes down to what works for you?

    when I say properly I am really referring to 2 through + and pro players where the shots will generally fly the same distance with the same trajectory - but maybe not always the same direction then the issue becomes what 'shots' do I need in the bag rather than which clubs.

    My 21 hybrid is a 3i replacement, as per region3. For some unknown reason, tour edge call it a number 4 hybrid, but it has 3i loft?

    Not too sure what your point is duncan, I may be being a little dumb though

    I can hit my current clubs "properly", although that was questionable yesterday!!

    Re: 4 Woods?

    my 5W is 18 degs and i have the 21 deg utility
    The 5 w shaft is longer
    i notice a useful distance gap between them
    i tend to use the 5w off the tee and the 21 off the fiarway/rough

    in hindsight i prob shoudl have gone for a 4W rather than the 5w

    A few years ago i bought a Progen Driver 7W to add to the old 1/3/5 Ws i had; it was such a good club that i bought a Progen 3W and played with those 2 for a long time. Had a lesson at Woburn and the Pro told me i should get a driver, so i bought one as well, but felt a bit lopsided, so bought the Progen 4W off teh web new for 12 ! And played with those 3 for ages as well. Used the 4W for a lot of tight tee shots.

    (i only swapped them out when the driver became illegal and bought a Callaway GBB off ebay, and then swapped in some other Callaway eBay specials that are lovely clubs. They woudl still be in the bag if the Ping giveaway hadn't come along

    1,4,7 or 1, 4, 21 is a good spread

    My 4W is 17* and I have a 3H, 20* hybrid. So no major difference there tbh.

    I got rid of the 3W coz I could only use it off the tee, and because my 4W gives me a better flight, I don't reckon to there being any loss of distance with it.

    The major difference is that with just a little practice with the 4W, I am always thinking I'll be playing my next off the short stuff.

    OK - taking your capability out, the difference between the 3 wood and 4 wood will be negligable in launch angle, trajectory and spin, distance approx - 8%

    ie it's not complex

    Re: 4 Woods?

    being very inconsistent I changed driver to a 12 degree as opposed to 10.5, decided my 3w @ 15.5 was too small a gap so went with a 4w @ 17 and have 21 degree 3 hybrid. works for me, just about

    also going to get 2 (18deg) & 4 (24deg) hybrid as for some reason I hit these way better than longer irons which I rarely use anyway
