  1. Update:

    Well, it's confirmed - I received the wrong club.

     

    My fitter finally got back to me and said it should be a 21 degree 4 hybrid. That certainly makes more sense. Even though the loft is the same as my current 4 iron, I would expect it to come off a little hotter. Should fill the gap nicely. 

     

    Thanks for all the responses. Good thing I didn't hit it!

    Yeah I'm a 23° hybrid to a 24° 5 iron and that also works well for me. It sounds like the OP would be better suited to a 19° hybrid to fill the gap between a 3 wood and a 21° 4 iron. 

    Exactly my thought. My old hybrid was 18 degrees and filled the gap perfectly.

    What's the SureFit adapter setting?  Is it possible it's the 24* but it's lofted down to fit your gap? 

    I also reached out to the fitter about this but no response yet. It arrived in default/neutral settings.

    Doesn't sound right if you are actually striking the 21d iron well, which lets be honest: that's a 3 iron not a 4 iron and many of us don't have the speed and/or consistent strike to really get a 10-12y gap with long irons below a 5 or 6. Its possible the combination of added loft and a bit longer club showed a more consistent gap for your longest iron. 

     

    The number on the club to me is marketing as you can see a 3d or more difference in a 4 hybrid for example between models. My epic is a 4H is a 23. Rogue was a 22. Mavrik is a 21 but the mavrik pro is a 23. 

     

    Last iron I consistently hit is a 25-26. The 23-24 iron I can hit OK but I prefer my 23 4H then gap down to a 20 as my next head cover. 20-21d iron? Not even at the range for me 🙂

    It’s a set of Srixon ZX4s and I believe I strike the 4 iron pretty well. I’m not too concerned about the number on the club but that it’s actually higher lofted than the 4 iron. My old hybrid is lofted 18 degrees and filled the gap perfectly.

    My Titleist 4h is 25 degrees, my 5h is 27 degrees, neither says 4 or 5 anywhere.  There is no standard for what is or isn't a 4h or 5h, no reason to worry what label it has.  The only issue is loft.  Your fitter would know and you should have a record of what you were fit for.  If it was a 24 degree hybrid that's all that matters.

    This particular club explicitly shows a 5_24 on the neck of the head.

     

    If I can contact him and he says that’s it, I’m good with it. A 3 degree higher loft than my highest iron just seems weird to me.

    24 degrees is within the usual range for a 5 hybrid. If you were after a club to go between a 3 wood and 4 iron I'd think a 3 or 4 hybrid would have been more appropriate, so I agree that an error was probably made somewhere along the line.

    That’s what I’m thinking. Something seems off.

    That sucks!  I would not follow the advice of hitting it that the other  poster gave.  Not until I confirmed it was the right club.  Even delofted you could only lower it to 23 so it if you are hitting the 21 degree club well enough to justify having it, then it doesn’t make sense.  A 21 degree hybrid might gap fine with it but a 24 doesn’t make sense…


    I will keep it out of the bag for tomorrow 😞

     

    Thanks man

    That doesn’t sound right.  It’s common for hybrids to be longer than the iron they replace but not 24 degrees being longer than a 21 degree club.

    My same thought. Either Titleist sent me the wrong club or maybe my fitter fat fingered the order. I reached out to him but he hasn’t responded. Playing in a tournament tomorrow and was reallllllly lookin forward to using it.

    I guess my question would be were you fit for a 24* 5h? I would hope they sent you what you were fit for. If they fit you for that club for that gap, don't try to do mental math and hit it and see.

    Honestly, I don’t know. He put the TSi2 in my hands, made some adjustments, then ordered it. I didn’t know the specs until it showed up. He fit me for my whole bag and he’s been awesome so far but this just doesn’t seem right.

    Anyone know how long it typically takes for a club to go from the conforming list to market?

    I was looking to upgrade my old CBX and I am trying to wait this out

     

     

    Man, I’ve been waiting for months and I see no announcement in sight. Went for a fitting and he put me in Vokeys. Didn’t think I was good enough to game traditional wedges but here we are.

  11. I was fit for a TSi2 hybrid a few weeks ago and it just arrived. Upon closer inspection, I realized it’s a 24 degree lofted 5 hybrid. I was expecting something with less loft.
     

    This club was supposed to fill the gap between my 3 wood (15 degrees) and 4 iron (21 degrees).

     

    Did Titleist send me the wrong club or is this common? Would a hybrid with 24 degrees of loft ever be used to gap higher than a 4 iron with 21 degrees of loft?

     

    Help - I’m confused.

    I was just in a golf tournament last week and won some pro shop credit

    I have to use it by the end of the year.

    So I was hoping this would come out before the end of the year so I can use it on this

     

     

    Nice - congrats on the placement. Earning money makes you a professional golfer, right?

     

    I'm crossing my fingers, brother. As soon as I hear anything, I'll post on this thread!

    Does anyone have any idea how long it would take for this to come to market

    What is the general timeframe for a club to show up on the conforming list to make it to retail?

     

    Should we see this in the fall or next year?

     

    Wondering the same. If history repeats itself - the CBX2 was announced on July 29th 2019 and made available to buy on August 30th 2019. Keep your ears open over the next week or so. As soon as Cleveland posts something on IG I'm sure it'll be all over the forums.

  14. Well, they finally came in and they are beautiful. Went with 4-PW attached to TT Project X 6.0 shafts and Golf Pride MCC +4 midsize grips. I've only played one round with them but the ball flight is a huge improvement over my old clubs and the ball coming off the face feels amazing. Obviously the lofts are jacked so I'm more or less clubbing down from the distances I'm used to with my old set. Definitely a chunky iron at address when you get past a 7 iron but I'm a 19 handicap so seeing the bulge in my low irons gives me some confidence. First time with the 5-iron on a 192 par 3, I stuck it 6 feet from the pin with very little release. Missed the birdie putt (I'll blame the aerated greens) but sunk the comeback for par. I've heard the decent angle can sometimes be too low with these irons but I had no issue sticking greens. If you're looking for solid GI set of irons with a forged like feel, look no further. I would recommend these beauts to anyone.

     

    Now I need to get the bottom of the bag figured out because the PW is going about 140. C'mon new Cleveland CBX zipcores.

    looks good choice in say 50 and 54 with the  Blade  full face 58

     

    oh NO!

     

     

    Agreed. I'm thinking 48, 54, and 60 full face 😍. My ego wants to play the RTZ zips but I know I should be playing the cavity back wedges. I currently game an original CBX 56 and the thing is money. 

  16. Ordered a set of ZX4 4-PW with TT Project X 6.0 shafts (+.5") in April. Initially I was told that orders were being filled in about 3-4 weeks. After a month, Srixon told me that the clubs wouldn't be built/shipped until the end of June. Well, June came and went. Now I'm hearing from Srixon that they will be done mid to end of July. It seems like a lot of you are experiencing the same thing and maybe they're just waiting on shafts at this point. I like to gripe on here but I do believe they will be worth the wait. I'm just hoping that the order won't be pushed back any more. I've played my current irons for 10+ years so what's another 1-2 months. Positive thinking!

     

    Seriously though, I want my freaking irons. 

  17. Gamed the Ping G425 at the start of the season but couldn't hit it. I always thought Ping was the face of forgiveness but hitting the Cally LS has blown me away. It's been in my bag for a few months now and my distance and dispersion have improved greatly. The head combined with the Mitsubishi MMT 60 X shaft is a pure bomb combo off the tee box. 

     

    I've only swung the SIM2 a few times so I can't speak to how it compares but I was a TM (2010 Burner) guy before making the switch to the Epic Max LS and I have to say the difference is huge.

  18. Ordered a 4-PW set back in April. Still not here but Srixon saying they should be here late July. Out of all the clubs I hit during my fitting, these felt the best and they look sharp at address for a GI iron. Should also say I'm coming from TM Burner 2.0's that are 10+ years old. Will update when I can actually play with them. I'm hoping to knock 5 strokes off like @combokid!

  19. I was recently fitted for new irons and the ZX4 blew me away. I swung the G425, the Sim 2, and the Apex DCB but nothing felt as good. Coming from TM burner 2.0s from 2010, the feel of the Srixons were amazing. I'm counting down the seconds until they arrive.
