The Titleist 915H hybrid combines Titleist's traditional good looks with more technology than we've seen in their previous metal woods. Solid performance, but probably best left to above average players.
The big performance upgrade in this club is the Active Recoil Channel" in the sole. You can see it in the pictures above that this is not a paper cut - it's a deep, wide slot. Titleist claims that it helps the club to deliver higher ball speed and lower spin.
While the slot does seem to help thin shots, this is still not a hybrid for the high handicap player. Compared to other current hybrids, the 915H loses a lot of ball speed on mishits which translates to shots that fall well short of their target. This club is also higher launching and higher spinning than some other hybrids, which may be desirable traits for accomplished players, but not for recreational golfers. Finally, the 915H is as much as 20 yards shorter than other current hybrids at the same loft. Again, better players may not care, but average golfers likely will.
One strong point in favor of the 915H hybrid is the wide variety of shaft options. At no up charge, you can pick one of four different Mitsubishi Diamana shafts or the Aldila Rogue. These shafts cover a wide range of feels, ball flights, and weights, so every golfer who buys one of these clubs should take advantage of being fit for their best shaft.
