    I have the H2 hybrid in 19 degrees. If I wanted to buy another to go a bit shorter, what would be he proper club to have good gapping? I am thinking the 23 degree but I am not sure.

    Sounds like a good choice or you could do a fitting to check all the data on your gaps. Also depends on where your next long iron starts. For me, my longest iron is a 6 iron at 29 degrees so the hybrid is 24 degrees and the fairway woods are 16.5 and 21 degrees.

    I agree with Dale, best way to make sure you get the right loft is to get fitted. I’m no expert or fitter, but I’d definitely say you are in the ball park. Research what your club below your hybrid is and put it as best as you can right between the loft of your hybrid and the club below it.

    I have the H1 in 19* lowered to 18* and then the H1 in 23* lowered down to 22* and my gapping is bang on. I was fitted for both clubs to make sure my gapping and ball flights were what I wanted from them. I find the 4* gap is about right for a 15 yard gap

    Tom,

    agree with above as best to get fit as you will have to consider the carry and roll distances in the gapping as depending on your swing you may find they can get pretty close (either carry or total) with longest iron and fairway. Shaft and SureFit will allow you to get the correct match. If you can do this outside it will also give you the ball flight which you won't get indoors.

    Mine were 19 and 23 degrees in H1 on A1 matched to my 716 AP1 5 iron which is 1 degree strong and a 917f2 at 15 degrees.

    I agree with Dale that the best approach is to go for a Titleist fitting. I was fitted for AP3s and H1s this year. The fitting was a wonderful experience and guided me perfectly. The fitting doesn't only address lie and loft but also the shaft. My irons are with a graphite stiff shaft and hybrids are with graphite standard flex, it surprised me that would be the case but the fitting showed me the way. Check out a Titleist Thursday event in your area and take advantage

    I wish we had Titleist Thursdays in our area. The closest is about two hours away in Myrtle Beach. We use to have them in Charleston but has been a while. Guess not enough participation.

    The tournamnet season for us does not start until August so time for me to play around with my game. Am taking out a couple of wedges Friday (48 and 52) and putting in another Vokey and putting in an additional hybrid. I currently play the senior tees and know we will be playing longer tees. Will need a little more distance in the mid ranges. So the additional hybrid should be my answer. Plenty of time to get dialed in. Great question. I love that old 913, just could not get rid of it. I have a 816h1 (18*) (21*) and a 913H 25.25*.

    My driver is set at 11.25 (917D2) and my fairway at 15.0* (917f)...at 72 this sets up well with my 716AP1 Irons 5-P......Vokey 50.08, 56.10 F Grind.......fitting is the way to go.....my Titleist fitter set my up with all these clubs.....and I work them in an out on an as need basis.....senior tees, I go with more wedges.....

    My lofts are 11.25-18.75-25.5-28.5-31-36-42-48-53-58-64. The driver is 910D2 with Ilima 61R. 5W is 915F with x5ct 60g lite. 4H is 915H with Bassara A. 913H 27 with Bassara R. The 6 and 8 irons are AP2 with Project X Rifle 5.5. The 42* (RM21) and the remainder of wedges (SM6 50-08, 54-10S, 58-08M; MD3 64/8) are DG wedgeflex. The spread between the 915F to 915H is 20 yards. spread down to 9 iron (42) is 15 yards. Wedges are 20.
