I really like the iBrid CH2. It is very forgiving and the variable thickness cup face helps with ball speed, too. The shape is more like a driving iron than a small fairway wood, what I prefer in a hybrid. I built mine to 3i length (3hy/22) and it goes miles (for my swing speed and compared to other hybrids) while being very accurate at the same time. It goes further than my previous 2hy (18).

Shortly after the Ballista was available I gave it a try but I didn't like it at all.

I never tried the iBrid CH1.

As mentioned in the other post I recommend the I-Brids over the Ballista.
Ballista were nice.   perhaps I did not give it enough chance....  probably had the wrong shaft.

I-Brid chapter 2 just looks more simple.
Shape reminds me of the Adams A12 Pro that I used to love!
Anti left and very workable.

Other Romaro hybrids are good too.   
Type R '17 UT in 18 deg is the most automatic/straightest hybrid I've hit.

Nobs, I think we like the same type of hybrids. I also had a Adams A12 Pro which I also thought was very good.

Yeah... the more forgiving hybrids unfortunately tend to go left on important shots.  Just can't reliably use them.
