Am I the only one?
Titleist has smaller fairway heads - that makes them more playable. The problem is that they are not always for the slower speed golfer.
Other OEMs have gone to mega fairway heads and bigger hybrids that are smaller than the typical fairway (let's say140cc verus 115cc), yet their hybrids still offer confidence -- and they offer shorter shaft lengths that lead to more consistency; and they are more playable out of more lies than the typical fairway.
For the above reasons, I've gone to one fairway (17-18.5) and 2 hybrids that are 20+ degrees. I play a 42.5 inch fairway, a 40.75 hybrid and a 40 inch hybrid.
And yes, Titleist hybrids are fine clubs - the 913 seem smaller than the 910 ... not as confidence inspiring IMHO.
