New H1 and H2 models provide superior distance technology with precision fitting to improve long game performance.
Titleist 816H models deliver an unparalleled combination of distance and forgiveness through the game’s best hybrid technology. The Active Recoil Channel – a long, deep channel, positioned along the sole of the clubhead, close to the leading edge – delivers more distance by actively flexing at impact to launch the ball with lower spin and higher speed. An Ultra Thin Face works in combination with the Active Recoil Channel to deliver increased ball speed across the entire face. A precise High-MOI design with a low centre of gravity (CG) location delivers stability and forgiveness by preserving ball speed across the face for distance consistency on off centre hits.
816H hybrids feature a new SureFit Tour hosel configuration that adjusts loft and lie independently in 1º increments (as compared to .75º increments on 915). The 1º increments mirror the adjustments typically made to irons, while allowing more fitting flexibility for players to try the same lofts at different shaft lengths.
816H1 [above] has a larger profile that provides confidence, with slightly increased face progression that performs well from the rough.
816H2 [above] has a more compact shape with a slight offset for iron-like shot control for players who engage the turf more aggressively.
“The new 816, with the silver head and black face, is a really cool-looking hybrid,” says Jordan Spieth. “It’s really clean, really crisp. When I strike it, it shoots off the face nicely. It goes a little higher than my 915 hybrid, and a little bit farther. If you’re going to hit it a little higher and farther, ultimately that’s enough to make a golfer really pleased. When you mishit a hybrid, you need it to stay on line, still get up in the air and to still go far enough – and that’s what 816 does.”
