Titleist 818H1/H2 vs Titleist TS2/TS3 hybrids


Recommended Posts

For me the ts2 has been a little more forgiving and a little longer (the longer is not necessarily a benefit but I suppose I prefer it).  I had the 818 is a 19 and 23 and traded them plus a very little cash for the ts2 in 19 (set to 18.25) and a 4 utility iron.  Overall I prefer the ts2, and do think there are slight performance benefits.  All that said, if I still had the 818’s the performance benefits are so small that I would not spend the money to replace them.

818h1 was and still is a great hybrid with no hook options. But if you like a even more forgiving and very long hybrid like a small 5 wood try the TS2 hybrid in 19*.

The 818H2 is probably the first hybrid that I've ever considered irreplaceable. Haven't tested the TS, but the looks/set-up just don't appeal to me, so that's off putting enough for me not to even consider it. The 818 is just so incredibly solid feeling and does everything I could expect from a hybrid. In fact, I would go so far to say that the entire 917 line is the best that Titleist has ever produced. Other good and bad offerings, with the 907 line by far being the worst, but just can't go wrong with the 917/918's.

 

So I just got a tsi2 hybrid but am thinking about making the switch to the 818 instead...the reason?  There is no ARC channel in the tsi (or ts!).  I believe that is why the ts and tsi models feel more tinny. 

 

I've only gone down this rabbit hole because I love the feel of my tsi2 fairway wood - which coincidentally still has the ARC channel.

I can only comment on the feel/sound of the 818h2. It's super solid and muted. I really just can't imagine that the Ts or Tsi could be better performers. If feel is a concern for you, stick with the 818.

      This week, the PGA Tour is at TPC San Antonio on the Oaks Course for the Valero Texas Open. GolfWRX was on-site Tuesday to catch a glimpse into the bags of some of the world’s top golfers.
       
      The field of 144 is getting ready to battle starting Thursday for the $7.7 million purse, with $1.386 million going to the winner. The tournament is also the last event where players can qualify for The Masters, just like Canadian Corey Conners did last year.
