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.
