Rory put the hybrid in play so not sure where the disconnect is?

Well however the conversation went it ended up in his bag so it doesn't matter. For a while at the start of a new season Dustin used to have TM's latest and greatest irons in the bag or a tournament

Bent by who? I called TM up and spoke with a rep and they said they won't bend these flat. I I told them I usually struggle with over drawing most hybrids, at least ones at 60* and he was just like... oh well this is very neutral. Idk, call me a little skeptical then.

My local roger Dunn here in California . They use the same fluted hosel as the M6. I’ve had an M6 hybrid bent as well with no issue.

Okay so not directly by TM. Man I really wish they'd sell heads only because none of those stock offerings I'm really crazy about and the one time I ordered direct from TM in the past, I got that 1'' tip job that the poster above is talking about. On a 60x black tie... that was no fun to swing.

I agree the offerings for shafts are not great. But I will say I previously played the Fuji Atmos Tour Spec HB Blue 8S in my 818H2 and the stock Ventus Blue (no Velicore) in the Sim Hybrid was suprisingly good. I would compare it to the differences between the Ck Pro Tensei vs the Ck Tensei. The stock shaft on the SIM is the Ck Tensei equivalent in terms of materials used. Really surprised myself as I am a shaftoid.

Surely they’re just talking about standard tip prep? Why would any manufacturer sell each club stiffer than stock. Especially given how many shafts are non full retail, meaning they can define the spec a bit more as is

Well it used to be OEMs started tipping shafts without "telling" us because head weight was going up, so it was so counter act the shafts getting more active due to this. Just look at a few G400/410 heads out there...Many of them come in over 205g stock. I've had 3w heads come in before around 208-210.

TM charged my card last night so I have to assume it’s being built. Did you order custom or just stock?

Nothing for me I ordered 19 custom with Ventus tipped. Got excited that it had shipped last week only to realize it was the gloves I threw in with the purchase

I didn’t mind the stock Ventus shaft even if it was a made for. Gave me the right height I was looking for. Liked the smoke in my woods that came stock how is the smoke in the hybrid? @Lobber

Ordered my 3H with a GD AD-DI last night (and a different grip). Figure it'll be built/ship next week sometime. This is the 2nd hybrid I've ordered without ever hitting the club (or even seeing it in person). The last one I used for over 4 seasons before it broke. Can't wait to try it, as it looks like it'll be perfect for me, my swing, and what I want the club to do.

Mine arrived on Friday, perfect timing before the Saturday tee time. Ordered 19 with the the Ventus tipped 1 inch. Love the early receipt after "won't ship before 2/7/2020"

Was very impressed. Only got 5 swings on it during the round but really impressed. First hybrid I've hit in years that didnt want to just go left. An easy little cut swing carried like 240 and stopped on a dime, and I got one to flight nice and low and ran onto a par 5 from 278 out from an average lie in the semi rough. Really really happy. Dare I say I might even can the P790 UDI now....

 

I have been struggling with fairway woods for a year and with this thing I feel like i have something I can smooth to 2 iron lenght and hammer to 3 wood lenght with more consistency. Consider me impressed!

hit the sim hybrid again for the third time today. not impressed. i want to be. so many pros are putting this in the bag. the club trade in program is so good. i am looking for a new hybrid. but im just not seeing the results with SIM. possible the shaft is the issue. I'd love to hit this with the tensei pro white in it. but with the ventus, im seeing better distance with my gamer 2016 apex at 20 degrees and a shorter shaft. Also carry the Callaway super hybrid at 20 degrees 15 yards farther.
