OUR TAKE

The H2 maintains more iron DNA than its bigger brother, the H1, which makes it slimmer and more workable—an ideal combo for better players and those with steeper swings. It’s still easier to play than an iron—the H2 (and the H1) features a reconfigured geometry that the company claims increases MOI by 10 percent, adding forgiveness. A new SureFit CG weighting system—borrowed from Titleist drivers—makes the new H2 more playful than ever, capable of banging out draws and fades with the turn of a screw.

FITTER COMMENTS

“Streamlined, compact and very attractive aesthetics. Performance characteristics favor penetrating, lower-spin ball flights. Tremendous adjustability. Tends to favor a mid-low launch.”
