I asked the same question on the forum a few weeks ago Liam, but asking whether I should swap my 5 wood for a 2 iron hybrid. My view is that the same loft in a hybrid and fairway should go about the same distance
For the record, I will be swapping my 5 wood for a 19* (roughly) hybrid

I carry three hybrids. 18deg, 20 deg and 22deg. I love them and will not put fairway woods in my bag again. I'm just as long, more accurate and confident with them.

Carry 19 and 22 degree hybrids and love them, ultimately just so much more forgiving than the fairway woods which i always struggled with.
I think theoretically fairway woods will give you a little more roll and therefore a little more distance but if you can't get them away in the first instance that won't help you much!

I use a 3 and 5 fairway wood but my 4 and 5 irons are hybrids.
I absolutely love the hybrids. Very easy to hit and great for getting out of the longish light rough.
Used to struggle with the woods but they are starting to really work for me and I am getting great distance with them.
I would just go with whatever you feel comfortable with but make sure you know your distances if you swap, last thing you want is a distance gap because you have exchanged clubs.

The bloke who invented the hybrid needs a knighthood. I have no real problems with hitting long irons, only that if i slightly miss hit one then i know it, loosing too much distance. I was handed a 21degree hybrid some time time ago, I now have 3 and now may longest iron is usually a 6iron. The consistancy of the hybrid strike far outways the benifit of a long iron. I can get the distance i need but with the height i still get nice control on the green. Depending on where im playing i look like an headcover sales rep..lol..

I'm of the opinion that a hybrid is a wood and I can get more control from an iron. I'm not against them as I do consider my 5 wood (17*) as a type of hybrid which does get the height and can be hit in from 210 yds .
