Like many of you, I've yearned to answer life's most important questions. And while I've come to understand women, the meaning of life, and string theory, the riddle of the 5 wood / hybrid has proven a difficult puzzle to solve... until now. The Titleist TS2 17* hybrid looks like an old school 5 wood. Classic lines, black gloss, etc. But what about the shaft? Old school 5 woods have steel shafts. Enter the KBS hybrid steel, and bingo! we've entered the future by way of the past. I tipped the shaft 1.75" so it plays like a hard step and a half. Overall club length 39.5". I'm long and straight!
