What we say...
Titleist's 818 H2 Hybrid is designed for golfers who have a steeper delivery to the ball and prefer the look of an iron.
The new Titleist 818 hybrids incorporate tour-proven Titleist driver technology to create the longest, most accurate Titleist hybrids ever – providing dedicated golfers with the performance and fitting precision for improved long-game shotmaking.
The compact, square-toed profile of Titleist's 818 H2 hybrid delivers penetrating launch with precise distance and iron-like control. Available in 17o, 19o, 21o and 23 lofts.
Titleist's 818 H2 hybrid has a smaller profile, redesigned with a squarer toe, delivering launch and trajectory control with a slight offset for more aggressive players that engage the turf.
Stephanie Luttrell, Director of Titleist R&D Metal Woods Development, says "When building scoring clubs like 818H1 and 818H2, you have to think about distance in terms of playable distance. Playable distance is easy distance that launches high and lands soft."
"Improving that performance requires faster ball speeds, higher launch and a higher peak height of shot, which we achieved through our redesigned Active Recoil Channel 2.0 and improved MOI properties. Playable distance is also consistent distance that you can control."
"Having seen just how powerful the combination of SureFit CG Weights and SureFit Hosel was for players being fit into our 917 drivers and fairways, we knew that technology would be especially meaningful in shot making clubs like 818 hybrids, allowing players to optimise their ball flight and produce more consistent shot patterns. We've also made 818 hybrids even more forgiving, which is crucial to maintaining that playability on off-centre shots."
Titleist 818 H2 Hybrid: Key Features
Active Recoil Channel
Generates faster ball speeds across the face through its improved channel design and flexing polymer insert, producing a significant advantage in distance.
New surefit CG technology
In combination with Titleist's industry-leading adjustable SureFit Hosel, provides the ultimate in precision fitting and maximum shot-shape customisation for every player. The proprietary 16-setting SureFit Hosel allows golfers to set loft and lie independently to optimise ball flight and turf interaction for consistent centre-face contact, maximum distance, and improved shot control.
SureFit CG provides precise customisation through a highly efficient interchangeable weight system, optimising spin for a more consistent trajectory and tighter shot dispersion.
High MOI design
With a 10 percent higher MOI than the prior generation – increases speed across the face for more forgiveness on off-centre hits, while the optimally positioned, deep centre of gravity increases launch and trajectory for more shot-stopping control.
Premium Stock Shafts
818's high-performance stock shaft matrix features premium aftermarket options from the Mitsubishi, Aldila and Project X shaft brands that fit a wide range of players and swing speeds. Titleist will be the first manufacturer to offer each of these tour-proven hybrid shaft models:
