FW / Hybrid fitting scheduled for Friday the 19th

I've mentioned on a couple threads that I have been struggling with my fairway woods.  So far I've received a lot of good feedback including: go for a 4 wood, try the DHY SIM, don't rule out a hybrid in lieu of a fairway wood.

Now that my back is feeling better I decided to go in today and make an appointment.  I'll go in two weeks and I am walking in brand agnostic.  I'll send some updates when the time comes.

This won't reach BergRyman status but I feel pretty cool being able to share the experience...besides, the reward is a new club so, win win right? 🙂

I'm hoping to get a couple swings with the new Tensei Orange Raw to see how that plays / feels.

Good luck, hybrid may be way to go.

It was really nice to see all the new offerings...best part is I really have no plan walking into this besides finding a club that gets me 240-250 yards.  Now I just hope the time flies by a little quicker 🙂

@Berg Ryman has set the bar rather high on fitting reports, starting with the restaurant review. 🙌🏼

We have a winner...

It came down to the Callaway Mavrik and the SIM2 Titanium.  What I will say in short order is that the SIM2 may just be the fairway wood that keeps fairway woods my bag.  Spin, launch, feel, flight and carry all hit the numbers for me.  The Mavrik felt great and was so easy to hit straight but that is also a byproduct of the spin; the RPM's on this head were easily 1000-1300 higher than the SIM2.  

I really really loved the aesthetic of the SIM2 and I believe that had a huge role in me having some confidence in hitting this off the deck.  I ended up going with last years' Diamana FW75 stock in a stiff flex. 

The video is the Mavrik  

I'm happy...this was a great experience...
