Conclusion: Took my 3 iron in to the golf store and compared it with Cleveland Mashie and Titlest 909 wood and hybrid on the ball flight computer at the store: 909H generally about 200 yards and 3 iron about 190 yards.
Conclusion: Two years on, I cannot resist commenting that the reviewer is absolutely correct about the differences between the 909H and 585H. I use the 909H 19 deg. as a 5 wood / 2 iron and the 585H 21 deg. as a 3 iron. The 585 is more of a true iron-replacing hybrid whilst the 909H is more "woody.
Summary: I purchased this to replace a 3 iron (~225-230 yd range). After going to Edwin Watts, they informed me that they didn't have a demo to hit, so relying on reviews I purchased it anyway. I am beyond satisfied with my purchase. I hit the ball high, so I was afraid about losing distace.
Conclusion: I've been a Titleist guy for years with a low single digit handicap (1 to 3). I bit the bullet about a couple of years ago and went to a 5 wood instead of a 2 iron. My playing friends have alll gone to hybrids years ago and make fun of me for not going to them.
Summary: Purchased a 909H to replace 3 iron. Switched all my equipment from Ping to Titliest, and this Hybrid is easier to hit than the Ping G10, although I am a 4 handicap so it should be easy I guess. This club sits very square, no offset to speak of which provides confidence at set up.
Conclusion: I have some difficulties deciding which loft to choose, I currently play the new Wilson Tour FG irons and my average 4 iron is about 185 yds. So I am looking for a 909H for about 200 and 220 yds.
Conclusion: Asep, replace your high lofted fairway wood and your 3 iron with the 19 and get another wedge. 200 yard approaches are a crapshoot anyway, and you're going to need that wedge if you try that stuff. Heck, you'll need it if you don't. Oh, and these are very easy to hit hybrids.
Conclusion: I am using AP2 2008 Titleist 4 iron with project X rifle shaft 5.5 with no problem, but not really satisfied with my 3 iron with the same shaft. Should I replace these clubs with 909H hybrids? and what the benefit? anyone can suggest me? Thank you.
