I consistently hit my 915d3 8.5 head about 12 yards further than my 910d3 8.5 head with the same a'hina shaft.

Spin is ~400rpm lower, and dispersion is much better on misses.  Took me a few rounds to get used to the recoil channel, but it inspires confidence.

I thought I'd never give up the 910 but the 915 is just a better piece of equipment for my game.  Still planning on getting a hotmelt to fix the sound of the 915 and then I'll have absolutely 0 complaints or regrets.

I just replaced my 910d3 Aldila RIP stiff with a 2016 M2 HZRDUS stiff.  It's been a good switch for me, but I think it's mostly due to the shaft combo as prior posts have mentioned with the 910d3.

Some really useful posts here. It's making me want to keep my 910D2 driver and play around more with shafts.

Can anyone tell me more about the 910, 913 and 915 hybrids? Was the 913 that much better with a hotter face?

May pull the trigger on a 21* hybrid, but which one?

I do have a 913h 21* that I keep with my back up AP2 set as it fits the gaps better than with my Srixons.  It is my favorite Titleist hybrid I have tried yet, haven't tried the 816 range though.  The 910 was ok, but not impressive and the 915 felt nice but I found it to be harder to control and I don't really like the rounder toe.  The 913 isn't as round as the 915 and not as sharp as the 910, looks just right to me.  Performance is excellent, great flight, great distance and forgiving enough... I don't get along well with Titleist fw woods though, not sure why, I have just never found them to be all that forgiving and have not stood out distance wise, 915 probably the best out of them for me.  

What shaft is in your D2 now?

I think so, you might be losing out on a bit of distance with the driver but the 910Ds feel like butter.  Definitely still the best feeling driver I've gamed, the fairways are nice too however I think thats where technology has advanced the most in the Titleist wood family.

For me - drivers, yes. Fairways and hybrids, no.

Did the fairways and hybrids improve a lot in later versions - hotter faces etc?

Or were there other brands that simply produced better models?

I still have a 910 3 and a 5 wood in the bag, A few months ago I have hit a few fairway woods using a Trackman. I hit the Callaway XR16 woods 10 meters further, but I hit my 910 fairways great so I keep them in the bag.

For me, I would definitely say that the fairways and hybrids have become hotter. I didn't notice much difference between the 910 and 913 when it came to hyrbirds but the 915 in the F and H was a big jump.

i still game the 910. Still bombing it 290 with a Wilson duo golf ball.......its one of the better titleist drivers they have come out with in recent memory. The 917's are pretty good, but anything in between the 910 and the 917 are a waste of money. Its only esthetics that really changed, not performance. Titleist is mainly about quality, not building "hot faces" and things of that nature,

Very useful information - just what I need. I'm really debating whether to invest in a Titleist hybrid, and if so which one. I'm a slow swinger and want something I can hit regularly off the deck in various lies. I'm inclining towards Ping G with the Alta shaft. Very easy to hit off the mat - haven't tried it on grass. Seemed easier than the XR which also has a tinny sound. The 915H I tried had a Reg flex shaft and I really need an A flex, so was inconclusive off the mat but not without promise.

go hit these clubs off the grass at a fitting center. You CANNOT get a true feel for any of these clubs at a Dicks, PGA store or Golf Galaxy hitting off a mat.  That being said, the M2's are amazing as are the big bertha hybrids. I play a titleist hybrid for my 200 yard club and its one of those clubs that is my "go to" club. If i hit a bad shot with it I am almost shocked. It has been the best club in my bag for a few years and its so easy to hit out of multiple lies. The day I have to give up this hybrid is the day my confidence level drops 50% :)

good luck

Still play a 910 D3, to echo a bunch others, I have tried newer heads and hit them further, but none as consistent. I did recently upgrade from 910F 13.5 to 915F 15 degree and it's been a great switch. I like a strong 3 wood for tee shots, and the 915 performs MUCH better overall. I can hit it as far as the 910 off the tee but is much easier than 13.5 to elevate off the deck. Haven't played a hybrid so can't help much there.

i have a 910D3 and a 917D3..

the 910 spins more (200-300rpms on average); the 917D3 launches a touch higher; the 910 sounds a bit better (less tingy sound, more muted); the 917 feels better.

all in all, i like the 917 performance better -- a bit longer due to less spin and higher launch.

*hit BOTH heads with the same X-Torsion Copper shaft...

915 D2 seems every bit as accurate as the 910 D2 was, with maybe single digit yardage increase.  I am playing it much lower however with a different shaft, and I really like it.  If only it sounded/felt like the 910...

It's amazing every year the golf manufacturers come up with "the latest is greatest, so much better than last year's model"..  "Jailbreak technology, Wind turbines".  I'm always amazed when I am in the golf store and when I see people paying $499 for the latest and greatest driver.

I think (hope?) it depends on your disposable income. I buy the new stuff because tinkering with equipment is fun for me and I enjoy it as a hobby, but other than trying to get dialed in on a launch monitor because the launch/spin profile of a driver is better they're all pretty much the same.

If I didn't have the money I'd probably replace drivers and fairways every 5-10 years and irons maybe every 10 years, wedges probably every 3. It takes a long time for technology to improve enough that your old clubs are obsolete, and if you play players irons and wedges they'll probably take 20 years or so before there is any discernible technology difference. A set of mp14s and Cleveland 588 wedges from 1997 would still suit me just fine, but a 975D driver would probably need an upgrade.

The 975D was a great driver in it's time!  I always wondered what they'd get if they put today's technology into that footprint.  Probably hard to do, but it would be fun to hit.

I play a 910D2 driver, and it has a great sound and feel but I'm losing some distance to the new M2 driver I demoed at the same loft, similar shaft.

So I'd like to hear from other users of the 910 series. Don't know whether to continue with Titleist drivers/fairways/hybrids from 910 up though 913, 915, 917  or go over to Taylormade and start accumulating a few clubs, shafts and adapter sleeves. I can see virtues in either choice....

What do you think?

Same situation as you as I played the 910D3 forever.  I switched to the 915D3 and the face seemed a little hotter and it was a little more forgiving.  Never been a fan of TM woods but the M2 really intrigued me.  Did not pull the trigger on one last year but did this year.  I am glad that I did as the M2 as I am hitting it longer, straighter and will less spin than the 910 or 915.

a lot of PGA guys play the older titleist drivers.....between the 910 and the 917, you get 5 yards on average....not worth the $500 u pay to hit it 14x a round.....
