I left my old Nike VrS hybrid on the range & when I went back to get its, it was gone. So its time for a new hybrid. I know hybrid tec doesn't change as fast as driver tec, so unless I'm wrong in my assumption, I'm thinking about picking up a 22* ish hybrid (or maybe a 19* & a 22* ???) from a couple of years ago & wanted some opinions. Between used golf bins at the local boxes & eBay & on here, I've kind of looked around, and I think I've narrowed it down to these 2 choices... The Srixon ZH45 or the Titleist 816 H1. So... any opinions on either of these being a stand out? Anyone still gaming either one? Also, am I wrong in my assumption about playing hybrids from a few years back? Overall opinions would be much appreciated. Thanks!

    I'm still playing a 913H, the face is pretty worn in but I haven't found anything worth replacing it for. Given my run with the Titleist I'd suggest going with the 816 but in fairness I've not hit the Srixon.

    I have the Srixon in 19 degrees. It’s good. Especially from slightly iffy lies. Face and weighting appear neutral and ballflight is high without being too high.

    I actually also have the U45 in 23 degrees and find that between the both of them I have most scenarios covered

    I play the 816H1 in 17 and 19 degree and wouldn’t change anything at the moment. It feels solid.

    H45s are great clubs. I picked up a 3 last season on a whim and it quickly lead to me buying a 4 as well. First hybrids I've ever gotten along with.

    I bought 5 different hybrids over the winter and the H45 won out.

    Considering either the 19 & 22 in the srixon or the 19 & 21 in the titleist but dialing the loft up to 22. Like the idea of a more fade biased hybrid so probably would try B1 in the 19 & C4 in the 21???

    I played the 19 and 22 for a minute in the H45... the 22 launched pretty high, I went back to my 4 iron. 816 is a great hybrid but the H45s are not to be slept on, the 19* was awesome from many different lies and was a bomber off the tee. I'd game the H45 again, no question, I just stumbled on my 816. Good hybrid, too. I rarely lose it left and it's forgiving. The profile of the H45s are smaller to my eye, I actually like that though they may sound a little more metal-like.
