Pondering replacing the 4 iron with a 4 hybrid!

I plan on making this game as easy as possible in 2015.

I honestly have no clue right now. I have an Altitude 3 iron on the way, so if I like that, it could be Altitude 4 iron.

Really enjoyed the X2Hot when I hit it, really liked the Big Bertha as well.

Going to consider the Vapor line, 815 line. I have never played a 4 hybrid, so we shall see.

I've grown sick of the sound of my hybrid, I might try to find a J15H

Lots of choices!

I would definitely lean BB over Altitudes. ALT's were great from 5 on but the longer ones left a little to be desired for me especially off the deck.

I have never spent extensive time with the Altitudes. One of my good buddies that I play golf with has them and I have hit the 3 "hybrid" and really liked it. So, with a hole in the 3 hybrid spot, I figured I would give it a try.

I have always lusted over the BB and X2Hot, but for some reason... 3 hybrid is a club that I don't use a ton. Both will get long consideration for the 4 hybrid spot.

Graphite irons for my extra set of irons, or a set of irons w/ graphite shafts. I've got two sets that are pretty similar, and it might be fun to try graphite for a while.

During the hour between the time I thought my car was stolen, until the moment I realized it had been towed away, I did some serious pondering with the insurance money I thought would be coming:

Driver: Ping i25 with the 85-gram shaft
3-wood: Scour eBay for another R7
Hybrids: Serious ponder mode here; was wondering what TaylorMade had out there these days
Irons: I'd have to try out the new Callaway X-Forged, as well as the Srixon 745's, then make the call
Wedges: I'd have to consider trying something besides Cleveland, maybe the Scor
Putter: Without a doubt, I'd be getting the SeeMore Giant FGP

But alas, I spent $223 to get my car back, thus delaying further any equipment purchases :/

It's funny, I'm debating going back the other way. I haven't been hitting my 4h as well lately, but I've been hitting the 5i nicely. :shrug:

Pondering whole new setup basically. Finally going to pull the trigger just not sure where to go with it. On a budget with a 1 year old and wife being stay at home. Looking at last years equipment. Need irons, wedges, driver, and possibly 3w. 3w might wait I have a cleveland hibore that does okay. Putter is fine also.

Looking at

Irons
D100
Nike VRS_X
Adams a12os
and others


Drivers
Cleveland Custom XL
Taylormade RBZ
Ping K15
Wilson D100

Wedges
Taylormade ATV
Cleveland CG16/588

These are what are in my budget unless I go used so I have a lot of pondering. Sorry for the long post.

Sounds like you need a little #THPLegacy and the 14 club deal.

Yeah I don't ever win anything. If I didn't have bad luck I wouldn't have any luck at all but thanks for the heads up.
