OUR TAKE

As it is with drivers, the ability to adjust loft, lie and shot shape is huge in a hybrid. In fact, it’s probably even more useful, since shots hit with a utility club require greater precision. That’s why Titleist imported the SureFit system from its D driver series to its new H1 and H2 hybrids (this page). The H1 is the “woodier” of the two, designed for shallower, sweeping swings and players who prefer a larger profile. That translates to more forgiveness, too, in a package that’s easier than ever to fit in at the top end of your iron set.

FITTER COMMENTS

“Beautiful shape and look in a package that performs. Well-above-average forgiveness with tremendous adjustability. The H1 tends to favor a mid-high launch, which helps the ball land softly on the green.”
