Titleist reveals new 818H1 and 818H2 hybrids

Published

on

Two weeks ago, we spotted Titleist’s new line of 718 irons at the 2017 Quicken Loans National, where we photographed the 718 AP1, AP2, AP3, T-MB, CB and MB irons. Now, Titleist is unveiling its new 818H1 and 818H2 hybrids at the 2017 John Deere Classic and at the 2017 Aberdeen Asset Management Scottish Open.

In what Titleist calls a “product seeding and Tour validation process,” company fitters will be at each site where they will be fitting professionals into the clubs, as well as collecting feedback and data.

Compared to Titleist’s 816 hybrids of the last product cycle, Titleist’s new 818 hybrids have some noticeable changes based on the picture provided by Titleist, including an updated Active Recoil Channel, and the addition of what looks to be SureFit CG weight in the sole. The SureFit CG adjustability system was introduced with Titleist 917 drivers and fairway woods, and it appears the company is now using that system in the 818 hybrids.

See in-hand photos of the new 818H1 and 818H2 hybrids below, and make sure to see what GolfWRX Members are saying about the new hybrids in our forum.

    Whether they shallowed out the channel or just covered it with a piece of plastic to make it shallow, it was a good move. If all the woods are lol this in the future, I may find a reason to update. Lol

    “product seeding and Tour validation process”

    What validation process? Does anyone really think Titleist hasn’t already tooled up and started a full production run? These golf companies spun even the most trivial details.

    Had to watch some stupid ad, and the pictures didn’t even work!!

    Golfwrx used to be a good website before the current management and ownership took over…

      Barry, I totally agree with you. The core of the website is gone, and pretty soon its core audience will be gone, which will make this site no different from “golf.com” or something.

        Or better yet, uBlock origin – the best unwanted traffic blocker

      Just use Adblock, FFS

        When you use Adblock, some content doesn’t load. Some web admins make the content reliant on whether or not the ads load, so your argument is invalid.

    These would have to be very special to replace my Callaway Apex hybrids.

Titleist AVX golf balls passed the test, are now available across the United States

Published

on

Titleist’s AVX golf balls first came to retail as an experiment in three markets — Arizona, California and Florida — from October 2017 to January 2018. AVX (which stands for “Alternative to the V and X”) are three-piece golf balls made with urethane covers, and they’re made with a softer feel for more distance than the Pro V1 and Pro V1x golf balls.

After proving their worth to consumers, Titleist’s AVX golf balls are now available across the U.S. as of April 23, and they will sell for 47.99 per dozen (the same as Pro V1 and Pro V1x golf balls) in both white and optic yellow.

According to Michael Mahoney, the Vice President of Golf Ball Marketing for Titleist, the AVX is a member of the Pro V1 family. Here’s a basic understanding of the lineup:

  • AVX: Softest, lowest trajectory, lowest spinning, less greenside spin and longest
  • Pro V1x: Firmer than the Pro V1, highest spinning and highest trajectory
  • Pro V1: Sits between the V1x and the AVX in terms of feel, spin and trajectory, and will appeal to most golfers

Different from the Pro V1 or Pro V1x, the AVX golf balls have a new GRN41 thermoset cast urethane cover to help the golf balls achieve the softer feel. Also, they have high speed, low compression cores, a new high-flex casing layer, and a new dimple design/pattern.

For in-depth tech info on the new AVX golf balls, how they performed in the test markets, and who should play the AVX golf balls, listen to our podcast below with Michael Mahoney, or click here to listen on iTunes.
