I went to a Titleist fittings event last night at my local AG store with the plan to get fit for a U-series iron to fill the gap between my 4-iron and 3-wood. I like the feel of a long iron more than my current hybrid so thought that th U-510 would be the ideal club for me.
After trying both the U-510 and U-500 I had a definite preference to the U-510 as I was getting the perfect distance but the dispersion just wasn't quite as tight as I had hoped.
The fitter, Roddy Spence, then built up a TS2 19deg hybrid for me to hit to see how that performed and I was massively impressed. The ball flight was perfect, my dispersion was much better than the U-510 and even when I tried to hit a big draw (a hook was the standard shot with my last hybrid) it went near straight. I went straight into the shop afterwards and placed my order.
Moral of the story, dont go to a custom fitting with your idea of the perfect club already in your head. Take the advise of the Product Specialists and they will build you the best club that suits your game. You might be surprised!
I was told that it would take 2 week for it to be built up and sent out, does anyone know if this is likely to be bettered? It was a standard spec build - TS2 Hybrid 19deg head with a HZRDUS Smoke Black 6.5 shaft
I cannot wait to get it in my bag. Hopefully I get a few rounds use before the TT Regional Event at Slaley Hall next month.
