910 H setting help

Hi all,

Looking for some help with adjusting my 910 17 H. My bag is all ap’s, vokeys and 910’s. I’m a 7 and hit every club well. EXCEPT my hybrid. I cannot find a setting that works for me. I have my D3 on B1 and 15 set on C1. I’m a hooker. With these settings, I hit a high draw. I’ve tried the Hybrid at both and a few others settings and get the same results. Low huge hooks (I’m a high ball hitter, this baffles me). I’ve never had this issue with hybrids. Any thoughts? Thanks!

Hi Scott

I have had similar problems with my hybrid.  I just added some lead tape to the bottom of the toe and it has straightened out my shots and helped with the launch angle also.  Good luck and I hope it works for you as it has with me.

Your driver on B1 and 3 wood on C1 are .75* flat.    Also keep in mind that the 17H has a shaft length 1" shorter than the 19 fairway and is 1/2* flatter on top of that.

Another reason you could be hooking the ball with your 17H is that your swing plane is flat. Try a setting of A2 or D2 and stand more erect with the hybrid.  Or buy a 19 fairway.

I have my 19F, 21 and 27H set at A3.   If I set them to A1, I have a tendency to snap hook.

What I didn't ask in my last post is what brand of hybrids you used before.  TM hybrids and woods of the same loft have a 2* lie angle difference (I looked up a 19 fairway and hybrid; 58.5 vs 60.5).  

 910F and 910H have the same lie angle but the shafts differ by 1.5"  - hitting the hybrid is like hitting the fairway wood with too flat of lie angle.  If you compensate for the lie angle on a flat club - low screaming hook.

If you are using B1 on the driver and C1 on the 3 wood, again, try B2 or C2 on the hybrid (maybe even A2 or D2).  Stand more upright on the hybrid. 

 

Thanks for the thoughts guys. I've always avoided the left side of the chart with my swing. And don't get the range time I would like to play with settings. I have a tourney today and will get over to the range before hand to try the settings you suggested Lou.

 

I suspect I'm standing a bit too far with this club. Not sure, might be reaching. But it's only happening with the hybrid.  

 

I played the Mashie. I've played TM's as well. Always found them easy to hit.  Thanks again.

I had a 2K7 Burner 7W, Superfast 1.0 5-18, SQ2 5/26 hybrid and Superfast 6-27 and I just about never missed with them.  My bad shot was generally a block or push-slice (mainly due to standing too close to the ball).  Almost never hooked it but tended to hit a bit high.

I got the 910F on a whim (was passing by Play It Again Sports and the price was pretty cheap).   The Superfast 21H wasn't doing anything for me so I traded the 5-18 and the 4-21 plus $40 for the 910.  I actually hit the 910F on the B3 setting (which is 20.5 loft) just as far as the 5-18.

I picked up the 910H 27 on ebay for a really ridiculous price.   Set it at B3 initially and was nailing it.

I just got the 21 as a birthday present.

To make a long story short, the past month I had been having some consistency problems with my 19F, 27H and 7 iron.  I was using a persimmon 34H instead of the 7 iron because I couldn't hit the latter (pretty much snap-hooking it).  Generally I had been hitting a low pull with the 19 and missing left with the 27H.  I also saw my Surefit setting drift from B3 to C4 on the fairway and to A1 on the hybrid.  I would also miss left with my PW (which I had been dead accurate for a long time).  The other issue was that my left hand wanted to turn over toward the right (overly strong grip).  Also started feeling off balance.

It is when I got the 21H and started setting it up that I discovered that somehow my swing gradually flattened (probably due to the 34H because it has a flatter lie angle vs the 27H; I hadn't used the 34H since mid-2011 because I had an SQ 34H that I hit well).   I had a hard time hitting it.  The light bulb came on when I took the 27 to the neighborhood park.  I put the Surefit setting to D3 and stood up a bit straighter - consistent but small fade and setting to A3 made it dead straight.  Did likewise to the 19F and 21H at the driving range and I got my consistency back.  Also went back to the park with the 7 iron and PW and started standing more upright and hitting it very well.

Also, I remembered the low hooks when I was setting up my do-it-yourself irons in 2009.  My 8 iron was about 1.5* flat and I was hitting low hooks.  No problem with 9-LW because all were 35.5" and lie angle of 64.5*.

So that is why I have been suggesting to stand more erect.  My dad gave me this tip in 2008 because I generally pulled my woods and hybrids.  I also had to bend my irons upright to where they should be (1* upright).

 

 

 

 

 

I have my 910F 19* and 910H 21* set at D3 with a shaft 1" shorter than stock (41" and 39" respectively).  To make up for the swingweight loss, I have Winn Lite Dri Tac oversize grips.   I CRUSH it with these two now.  They both have Bassara A flex but play like regular due to the shortened shafts.

My 910H 27* is set at D3 with shaft 1/2" shorter than stock (38.5") and I hit it very well.  It has Bassara Regular Flex.

They all feel comfortable and I don't get off balance when choking down the handle.

I changed the setting to C3 on the 27 and really NAIL it now.

Another thing to consider is that not all of these clubs can be made perfectly with the alignment is the sure-fit technology so you do have to work with each club to find the setting on each that fits you I have the 913d and two 910 hybrids and had to spend about a half hour on the range with them to figure out what settings had to be on which club... if you can barrow some fitting tape from your local pro and see what is going on with the bottom of your club at impact and make adjustments accordingly. It could be a simple fix.
