Thanks Ole Gray and russtopherb for the responses!

Have room for 1 more club in the bag and no other areas of concern, plus it's a very good price for a top brand.
So definitely seems worth a try come next payday!

Definitely try giving it a few swipes before you buy it, I know when I demo'd it I was striping it off a mat, however that thankfully transferred to the course also. 

I will say that I do have concerns over the face; after a few range sessions off grass the black face is already really scraped up. Most likely not anything that'll impact performance, but something I definitely noticed.

I am enjoying the  Hy-wood so much that I decided to put the Launcher XL Halo 7 -wood in my bag.  I will be putting it in play tomorrow at our weekly dogfight.

Well I picked up one of these fancy halo hy-wood hicky bobs yesterday. I've been having too many misses to the right with my Maverick 3 hybrid lately so after reading reviews and watching some videos, I took the plunge. Let me tell ya, this joker ain't no joke! Like ole George Jones sang "she's hotter than a two dollar pistol" is a fact Jack.  Check out the specs below and we'll chew the wad more on this puppy.

CLUB LOFT HEAD SIZE LIE ANGLE LENGTH SWINGWEIGHT
3+ Hy-Wood 18.0° 143cc 60.5° 41.5" D1 S/R/A


They claim it's a cross between a hybrid and a fairway wood.  It's what comes out after Lassie is bo-hawged by a wolf. It's smart with plenty of bad arse under the hood. It sets up great behind the ball and inspires all kinds of confidence. Then you take your first swing with it and your eyes light up like a june bug in a bass pond. This dawg will hunt! The ball comes off the face quicker than cake off a folk after Fat Albert's starvation diet.

I seriously wonder why Cleveland Golf doesn't have more interest in their hybrids, fairways, and drivers. They're such a big deal when it comes to wedges and I have three of my own so I know they make good stuff. Anyways I'll throw in a few pics and if anyone else owns one of these please share your thoughts in this thread.

Nice review!  At first glance, the face view and, to a lesser extent, top down profile looks really similar to my G400's.  I think these "morph's" are pretty ingenious actually; trying to leverage the best of and throttle the worst of two club types.  Curious, for comparison with mine, what is your driver or 3w swing speed?

What are those dimple shaped markings in the middle of the face?  I've never seen those on any of my clubs.   😝

I hit the 17 degree Apex UW today.  That club is long and forgiving.  Couldn’t try the Hywood as they didn’t have it in stock.  If it’s one and the same the Hywood is the better value.

Thanks buddy !   My driver swing speed is in the upper 80's to low 90's depending on how much tylenol/aleve I ingest prior round. Getting old at 71 however getting smarter selecting clubs that fit my swing.

My new 7 - Wood  is the bomb! 💣    It's going to be a mighty little weapon for me on par fives as it launches far and high in the sky then lands like a butterfly with sore feet. 🥰😍

The 7-wood topic got me wondering: what's the difference between the Hy-Wood and a 7-wood? Just loft/head-size? I've got room for another club - no longer need/never hit my 4-iron (GI Sim Max), and was thinking about some kind of hybrid, but have been loving my 7-wood (about 200-210 yards-ish), so not sure I need anything else. 

Absolutely love the look of the 3-hy-wood, fwiw

@ole gray can probably answer this one with a lot more clarity since he has both, but I replaced my Heavenwood (21*) with the HyWood (18*). I get a wee bit more yardage with the HyWood but I have MUCH better forgiveness with the rails helping out on any heavy shots. My Heavenwood was my safety blanket and I have had no reservations about putting it out to pasture in favor of the HyWood so far.

The Hy-Wood at 18 degree loft has a more piercing flight and roll out where as the 7-wood has a beautiful high ball flight.  I am able to fade the ball where needed with the Hy-Wood and the 7 - wood has more of draw bias.   Love both of em! 😍

Russ, I have always felt the heavenwood was an awkward club, meaning it has a long shaft (5w) with a small head (7w). Does the Hy-Wood give you that same feeling? Like the shaft is too long for the size head?

Heck I cut an inch off mine and it didn't affect anything other than a very accurate and easy to hit club! I removed the 8 gram counter weight in the butt end of the club as it sucked for me.   Love it now 😍

Not at all. On the opposite side of OG I love the counterweighting in the shaft. Makes it feel so smooth for my swing.

I hit this club 3x today. One was a dead pull, which was 100% operator error. I was so worried about going right due to water I way overcompensated. 

The other two times I put the ball exactly where I wanted. One was a par 4 where my driver shot ended in the adjacent fairway to the left (man I hate it when groups let me play through 🤣) , my second shot with the HyWood put me 55yards out for a short pitch, right in line with the flag. The other was a par 5 where I had to hit an 8i after my initial driver shot in order to get the trees on the dogleg out of play, I hit the HyWood dead at the flag and ended up 15 feet away from the pin after rolling out.

I’m enjoying my Cleveland 3 Wood , I’m super impressed by this 3 wood . If you’re interested in there woods .

Its the first time I have been on 2 in a long longtime.

It actually went over the green and into a bunker, that I was fortunate to get up and down for bird.

I did have there 3 regular hybrid but didn’t keep it because I like my 4 stealth hybrid more.

Reading this post and resulting comments triggered my impulse buying response, and I’m very happy with the outcome! Found a Hy-Wood with my desired specs on sale at an online retailer, delivered two days later. Took it to work with me, hit 30 shots on the range before my caddie loop. 28 of 30 went 200-plus yards, with a slight draw or fade. I chunked one, topped the other. Four days later, played 18 with the Hy-Wood in use on almost every hole. Boom! Deep rough? No problem. Uphill, downhill, side hill lie? 95% success rate. It’s in my bag from now on, including during my upcoming two-week golf trip to Ireland this summer!

 Thanks to all y’all for publicizing the existence of this awesome club!

I'm liking the Hy-Wood. A perfect fit for a half set between driver and strongest iron/weakest hybrid. Excellent off the fairway, smaller head and rails help if one goes astray ...
