did buy those FliHi last November, and did not like them the first 2-3 times out there at the range hitting them on matts.
later I was able to practise on grass again and there was a complete
different feeling. The FliHi was easy to set up and hitting targets was
never that easy, like cheating as the others saying.
have replaced 3i-6i right now, and be happy with this choice.

These clubs just get better and better. They are so easy to use, I just love them from the rough

Users, what are they like off the tee? I just feel like I would miss them and that the fli hi maybe a little shallow off a tee peg? Any thoughts?

off the tee you must be carefull, that the tee is deep enough...
I put the ball on the tee just a bit higher than the grass would pillow him...

No problems off the tee with the 3. It is turning out to be a really versatile club, does a nice line in low punch shots out of the trees too.

Well I hope I'm not the only dissenter here but I have tried the 4 and 5 iron equivalents and found them offering little my Cobra hybrid rails don't already do.

However as its wet and windy here (not referring to the aftermath of a curry) I have only had a limited trial of them; but after reading the comments here will maybe keep them on trial for a couple more weeks...

It’s really hard not to think of them as a hybrid rather than a niblick type iron and with the shorter steel shaft you feel you’ll strike them off the heel but maybe that will disappear with time.

I tried these as they are the potential replacements for the 4 & 5 irons I took out of the bag and have currently replaced them with the hybrids and after reading all the positives I thought I must give them a try.

I'm still of the opinion that I need to use them a bit more often to really give them a chance but so far I'm not seeing great improvement with them over the hybrids and in fact as these irons are more for distance the hybrid look to be going further.

 
Just my initial thoughts...

I think in this thread most people are comparing them with irons not hybrids. I think the beauty of them is that you can have a steel shaft that matches your other irons, If you already had hybrids in those spots I am not sure your going to see greatly different results.

(I really am going to have to review before I submit; the grammar in my review is embarrassing!)

I understand these are designed to be a continuation of your irons rather than a bridge between them and your woods but even so the idea is still to find an appropriate club aimed at achieving the distances a 4 and 5 iron are designed for whilst making them easier to hit.

That said this was the premise that hybrids came about. I'm not sure the shaft material is the key element in their selection (aka graphite shafted irons) rather it’s the ease of use and better feel in the transition from a 'long iron'.

How do we reconcile using a 5 Fli Hi versus a 25* hybrid when the former is nominally easier to hit (for me) but the latter launches a ball further?

This was the point I was trying to make but I will keep them (taped up as they  are) a while longer...
