Cons: created a pretty large debate
What’s so good about the new Titleist 913H?
A few months ago I raced to post my review on the old 910H before people started running out to purchase the new one. At the time I was really unsure whether it made sense for me to get the new one or keep my 910 but after hours using the 913 and 910 I’ve come to a simple conclusion, the 913H is slightly more consistent, slightly more controlled, and goes slightly further. Well apparently that wasn’t enough because it is being outsold by both the new and the old RBZ hybrids (which I will be reviewing soon). That does NOT mean that the RBZ is a better hybrid though…
The New Titleist 913H
I really liked the new 913D and I really like the 913H but to be totally honest, this review is going to be a lot like my previous one for the RBZ Stage II fairway woods, a great club than can barely out perform its parent. So I decided to keep track of my average distances like I always do and hit 50 for each club and I averaged a whooping 2.1 yards further with a 913H 24 (degree) than my old 910H 24. That doesn’t make this club worth it but despite the little improvement to yardage, my swing speed went up 3.0 mph and I hit the 910 first! So after hitting 50 shots my swing speed actually improved. I couldn’t believe this so I had a friend (26 handicap) try out both. He hit about 50 for each and we removed all of the bad shots from the list and he ended up with 2.9 yards longer and 4.1 mph quicker swing speed.
Now I bet your thinking based on how much I have loved RBZ clubs in the past I’m going to say that these clubs don’t even come close to the RBZ hybrids but I can’t. Both clubs totally outperform the new and old RBZ hybrids. These are MUCH easier to hit and are way more consistent. Although the RBZ averaged something like 5 yards further than the 913H (sorry I forgot to write the exact number down) I was way way more consistent with the 913H. If you think you a great player and you don’t need the extra consistency or ease of hitting a good shot than go for the barely longer RBZ but I’m telling you, the Titleist 913 is the best hybrid you can get.
*So I wanted to explain why I have one of each the 910 and 913 hybrids in my bag. I actually had an original RBZ 5 wood but I loved this club so much I got rid of the RBZ and got myself a 913H 19 degree and kept my 24 degree 910H in my bag.
Options and additional information…
The 913 comes in five different lofts, 17, 19, 21, 24, and 27. There are also a ton of different shaft options just like all of Titlist clubs nowadays.
So which should I choose?
Well coming from someone who has both the 910 and 913 I find it really difficult to choose between the two. If you add up all of the improvement and all of the tiny developments that Titleist was able to incorporate in the new 913H, is it worth it to buy the new model? Well clearly I think so because I went out and got one for myself. If money is an issue believe me, you will be just as satisfied with the old model as you would with the new, but if money is not an issue I would recommend getting a new model. All of the little improvements add up to take the best hybrid ever made, and make it even better. Both clubs are great for all levels of players so skill really shouldn’t affect your choice. Try them both out and choose which one you feel is better. I would love if you could share your opinion on the matter and I’m sure other would also appreciate your results and decision if you were to go and try them both out.
