Bending Already Adjustable Clubs

Thomas K

I currently am playing Titleist 585 H hybrids in 17* and 21* lofts.  Can you bend - before adjustment - the 18* 913 HD to 17* and the 20* 913 HD to 21*?  I like the smaller-sized hybrids much more than the almost-wood-like hybrids and I'd like the ability to play the 18* head with 1* less bounce and the 20* head with 1* more.  Any thoughts?

    I believe that adjusting the loft not only would open or close the face angle, but may also impact bounce as well. It may not be too much of a change, but it should change due to head position. You also may be able to adjust lie angles to suit your swing better too.

    The heads don't have a hosel to bend. The SureFit adapter takes care of those adjustments. What would lead you to worry about the bounce of a hybrid when one degree of bounce is negligible even in wedges?

    Also, hybrids are generally not meant to be bent.  I saw a hybrid/iron bending machine at Golfworks and the key word is that it will SAFELY bend most hybrid models.  Whether or not Titleist hybrids are among them is a matter for the staff here; furthermore, most fitters will not risk bending hybrids (just like Png irons and stainless steel models) because of the risk of breakage.
