I'll give it a try, but I don't love the looks at address. My XR Pro likely stays in the bag.

YES!!!

This is very much what I envisioned, looks like an updated 815, have gotten over any issues with the crown stuff at address.  It looks adjustable....

I need a 4H ASAP, as in right freakin now.  PP is loaded and ready.

I agree about looking like a new 815 hybrid! It just went very high up on my "need to try" list! Could this finally dethrone my 20*?

There isn't is!  I'll take a #3 & #4 please.  Looks good!  Not sure how much performance benefit you get from going carbon fiber or adding the Boeing tech on the crown but do like the railed sole.  I'm sure this will be a natural extension of the Epic line.

Having hit the hybrid already it's everything people were asking for. Compact shape, sound is great, weight at the bottom is great for mid flight, and of course, the adjustability makes it extremely easy to gap as needed.

That could be interesting.  I am always trying to find the perfect 18* club.  I've tried tons of 5 woods and hybrids.  Nothing sticks too long.

Agreed this looks very similar to the 815 Alpha, crown is a bit busy, but will give it a try when it releases. It will be very difficult to replace the tour issue Adams in the bag now.
