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.

How did heavier or lighter shafts affect your iron performance? – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing shaft weight and how it affects their iron play. WRXer ‘RoyalMustang’ kicks off the thread asking two questions:

“1) If you went lighter, how did it impact your game (down to 95-105g). Tempo changes, good or bad?   

2) If you went heavier (120-130g), same question? Good move?”

And our members have been sharing their experiences in our forum.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • gripandrip: “Average about 105 on my driver swing speed… not much more anymore. Currently playing to a ~2 HC. Switched from DGS300 to Steelfiber i95. No issues for me at all. I stayed with DG400’s in my wedges. Initially, I thought I had issues with dispersion, but after a couple of rounds, it was no longer a concern.”
  • mackepa: “I have found that around 120 grams is the “sweet spot” for my iron game. Anything heavier, and I start swinging hard to try to get the shaft to feel like it’s loading. Anything lighter than 120, and it starts to feel like a toothpick. I tend to also play my irons over length since I’m a little taller. I currently swing driver about 110mph, but I don’t really go after my irons with the same effort. I currently love the KBS $-Taper 120 Stiff.”
  • erikro: “Biggest difference for me is with the s300 shaft I feel it more the next morning. With a 105 gram shaft I have no trouble.”
  • Ri_Redneck: “I play graphite iron shafts, but only 115g and higher. I like a club with some heft. If they get too light, it throws my sequencing off, and balls go everywhere. I can’t say I’ve ever gotten too heavy in my irons, but 80g is the top of what I like in my driver and FWs.”
