  2. I had two hybrids for a while (19 and 23 degrees) but found the 23 launched too high. I felt I had a bit more control over the ball flight with a 4 iron (at least vertically, not horizontally ) and switched to a 21 degree hybrid. I'll even take that out for a 3 iron for when I play a particularly tight local course, where I know I'll have a handful of punches in my round. I just can't keep the ball down enough on full swings and punches with anything higher lofted than a 21 degree hybrid. That's important to me. If it wasn't, I'd probably play multiple hybrids.

  4. Gonna jump in to add my two cents as a Ventus Blue guy. I've been playing Ventus Blue Velo 6s all year, G410LST head bouncing between 8 and 9 degrees depending on how I'm hitting it. In the sim all winter, I hovered around 150-157 ball speed (on GCHawk, didn't have clubhead data) but on the course I'm probably closer to 145mph for a fairway finder swing. I wasn't "properly" fit for it, but I've had great results compared to the Tour 65 shaft (still a shaft I like/get along with) and my old driver setups (400Max, Sim Max/Hzrdus Yellow). Launch averages 13-14 and spin around 2100, so
  5. Update on this one: took customer support a week of back and forth for them to say, hey, looks like that round somehow got lost and didn't upload to our servers. Delete and reinstall the app on your phone and things should work. I followed their instructions to resubmit the round and that deleted my round entirely.... and I had already played and posted another round successfully at that point without deleting and reinstalling the app.... so, round lost, no cause given or resolution received by support. Answered their survey they sent out after saying I didn't get the help I was looking for, a
  6. I love this when it works, but it unfortunately doesn't always work for me. I'm four rounds in, I have Link and used that for two. I don't think I missed any shots using Link, and just a couple with my phone, but not really a big deal. (I couldn't remember a couple shots after the round, but I'll chalk that up to the beer I was drinking.) Currently dealing with an issue where my round from Saturday is lost in the ether somewhere. Showed up on my phone, but couldn't view stats/SG and it didn't aggregate with the rest of my stats. Didn't show up on desktop dashboard. Contacted custom
  7. Yep, fairways and hybrids are not good value - but the performance dropoff in past iterations, I feel, is smaller relative to other clubs in a bag. This seems to be the best place in your bag to buy used equipment. Picked up a TS2 3w and 818H1 hybrid at a used golf store for about $200 last spring and do not plan to replace either item anytime in the foreseeable future - and if so, it will be for fitting reasons and will target a similar price point for replacement.
  8. Same in MN. Can't speak for durability yet, but comfort is top notch. Even if they're not that durable, at this price I'll be playing these all year
  9. I didn’t note this in my original post, and I didn’t do a very through test, but I didn’t notice a ball speed drop off the driver. Just seems to be different launch conditions, which if you can manage, you’re good. I’ll be testing further though. Anyone else noticed a ball speed drop (or gain) off the driver, or just launch/spin differences?
