I'm reporting back in order to put some closure on this thread.
I did indeed purchase a senior flex 3 hybrid and took it to the range to beat a few buckets of balls. I must say that the results were delightful as my shots were consistently higher in trajectory and most importantly far more accurate. In fact I startled the folks at the range (as well as myself) by hitting the flag I was aiming at some 170 yards away. LOL
Needless to say, I then proceeded to purchase that new hybrid iron set I had my eye on in Senior flex, played a couple of rounds and loved the results. I find that the senior flex truly rewards slow smooth swings with tempo and this prevents me from having to swing out of my shoes with poor results. The slower swing seems to attain equal or better distance, is far more consistent since I am more apt to hit it pure, etc.
In other words, it's all good! Loving my clubs, loving my more consistent contact and now working to dial in the new distances for each club which should take a few more rounds and visits to the range.
Thanks again to all who shared their experience and/or advice.
I'm one very happy golfer!
Fairways and greens, mates.
