I have currently been gaming a set of original Pro Gold in 18 and 20 degree lofts for about 6-7 years now, and I am just wondering whether or not an upgrade might make a difference.  The 18 degree is pretty much one of my main go to clubs in a majority of situations.  The 20 degree though is just really in the bag, but that is about it.  I have never really gotten the same performance out of it, and now it has a rattle in the head as well.  I have been looking at all the options, A12 Pro, Super XTD and the SS, and am looking for any opinions on whether any of these options are hotter than the other.  I really like the shape, feel, and size of the Pro Golds, but I have been reading the great reviews on both the Super XTD and the SS and have been intrigued.  I am a bit concerned though, since it seems that both the XTD and SS are a bit bigger that both the ProGolds and the A12 Pro, that I wonder if it effects playability.  Any thoughts or real world experience is greatly appreciated.

XTD is going to go farther and higher and is a bit more forgiving.  But the head is larger.  Almost like a 7 wood.   If you are trying to stay with the smaller profile like keep using the A12 Pro

Ive owned all three and if you like your gaps where they don't go for the XTD. The A12 is still my goto club and the XTD is my FW replacement.

I am kind of looking for something to fill in that 5 woodish spot in my bag, but I still want the workability and flexibilty of the size of the club.  If those were the parameters which would you go for?

+1 A12 Pro are better with appropriate gapping, and a much smaller profile as well.

Like everyone said ....A12 is way to go...I play the XTD 13* FW and 17* XTD HYBRID...and the hybrid is STUPID LONG for a hybrid. I'm waiting for the 913 hybrid to hit the streets so I can test that out. XTD is a great club no doubt but it is just too long.

If you are gapping hybrids and using more than one, I suggest the a12 Pros.  the XTD is good if you are looking for a single hybrid that can be more like a 5 wood replacement.

I agree with what everone else has said.  I currently play a 15*/19* XTD and 23*/26* A12Pro.  The XTDs are stupidly long.  They have a larger head like a 5/7 wood.  I actually just bought a 20* Pro Black and a 16* A12Pro to see how I like those to fill the gaps.  The gap between the 19* and 23* right now is too much for me.  I use the 15* as a fairway wood.  It gives me more control (shaft length I'm sure) off the deck and still can crank off the tee.  If you're concerned about head size and gap control I would stick with the A12Pros and then a XTD if you're looking to replace a wood.

An XTD would fill the 5W spot easily and you will like the feel and sound as well.
