Hi,

I'm thinking about replacing my hybrid that i have at the moment, but i don't know if i should buy a new hybrid, or for example a 2 iron. I'm a 8hcp and i'm 23 yeard old. This is my bag at the moment with my yardages (in meter).

910D2 9,5° - 250 meter

913FD 15° - 225 meter

910H 21° - 200 meter

AP2 3 iron - 190 meter

CB 4 iron - 180 meter

CB 5 iron - 170 meter

CB 6 iron - 160 meter

CB 7 iron - 152 meter

CB 8 iron - 145 meter

CB 9 iron - 135 meter

CB Pitch - 120 meter

Vokey 52° - 108 meter

Vokey 56° - 98 meter

So what should i get? Hybrid 19°, Hybrid 21°, Fairway wood 19°, 2 iron (AP2, CB, 712U)?

Thank you all.

Laurent,

Why are you thinking of replacing your hybrid?

Do you want a different ball flight?

Do you want that gap between the 3 wood and hybrid to be a bit smaller?

Are your trying to find a setup that will play better for the course you play the most?

I am guessing you hit the ball a little lower than average. Or maybe you hit them high but don't really play in the wind much.

I guess I am wondering why you want to change things as your current setup looks fine to me. But there are a few variables that your original post does not address that I am missing. Let us know. Thanks

Hi James,

I'm thinking about replacing it because i want the gap between my 3 wood and hybrid a bit smaller. Also i thought a 2 iron would be easier then a hybrid.

I play quite high because there isn't that much wind out here.

Thanks

Laurent,

I voted for the 21 degree hybrid, but thought about telling you to change nothing.  Like James, I think your gaps are pretty good overall.  Yes you could close the gap between your hybrid and 3 wood, but then you'll just expand the gap between your 3 iron and hybrid.  I currently have both a 910 and 913 21degree hybrid and I hit my 913 a little farther (~10 yds).  I hit my 913 higher and it carries farther.  They have different shafts, but the specs of each shaft are similar (910 - Titleist Diamana ‘ilima 70 HY  and 913 - Diamana S+ Blue 72 HY).  Like James said, without knowing exactly what you are trying to accomplish, it's difficult to give meaningful advice.  I guess the best advice I could give would be to see you club pro or fitter and tell them what you are trying to accomplish and have them assist you.

Hope this helps,

Barry

Hi Laurent,

It sounds to me that you should consider upgrading to the 913h.  I have found that this club is a bit easier to hit than the 910h.  Then you should take advantage of the surefit hosel system to adjust it to the right yardage for your game.  To do this, I recommend you find a Titleist fitter.  The shaft is the key to finding the right gap.

Hope this helps,

Sam

Laurent,

I think Barry gives some solid advice.

Given what you wrote, you want a smaller gap and still hit it high, I would suggest demo'ing a 19* Hybrid or the 19* fairway wood and seeing how they might work for you.

The 2 iron (CB/712U etc) might just not fly high enough for your liking. 

I hope this helps, please let us know how your search goes. All the best.

I have three hybrids in my bag.  913H 17*, 910H 19* adjusted to a 20.5* and a 913H 24*.  Love them.  Then I go to my irons which begin with a five iron 26*.......my three wood is a 15* adjusted to a 14.25*......and my driver is a 910D3 9.5* adjusted to a 10.25*......I too love having the ability to adjust the loft as needed....the biggy is the Titleist hybrids are awesome........
