    Talking my first Hybrid, a Callaway BB Heavenwood 5H 26* loft

    my first hybrid...nice

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    today i played with my first Hybrid, a Callaway BB Heavenwood 5H 26* loft which I compared to my 3-iron and 4 iron.

    Heavenwood 5H 26* (which is about the same length as my 670 3-iron) is easier to strike and goes a bit further than my 3-iron (S300 shaft), but then again I notice my 3-iron goes barely much further than my 4-iron (after my 5-iron, practical reliablilty has been elusive, so far). More importantly than theextra distance, the Heavenwood 5H 26* is more predictable for about 180~200 yards or so than any of my irons or my 3-wood.

    I needed something easier than my 3-wood 15* that will not carry as far (210~240 yards) on a 200 yard Par 3, greens on a mound, that isn't so challenging as my 3-iron (160~180 yards) to stay in play for par. Hybrid's also handly around Par-5s, esp. after a drive I'm not so happy about.

    Perfect: Callaway BB* Heavenwood 5H 26* has found a "home" in my bag. (*But wtf about this "Big Bertha" marketing name??)

    Best of all, I got this club for free, from work, and I mistakenly choose "Regular" graphite flex istead of "Firm" flex, but turned out to be just fine as I like it and my wife (the lady also liked) and our son can also use it.

    Yea, ya know there's really not much reason to carry long irons anymore. You'll see on tour that less and less players are hitting long irons as well. Quite frankly, I'm not really sure what the advantage of long irons are over hybrids....probably just comfort, cause I don't think there are any technical advantages.
