Curious as to who is playing a U-series utility, whether you are also playing a hybrid and why did you choose one model over the other, whether by fitting or simple preference of design.
I am seriously considering one. Fitting will certainly give me the numbers off a mat or level turf, but there are far more factors that need to be taken into consideration in my opinion, not the least of which is looks. Personally, I like a smaller, players-style head with a thinner topline, which makes me lean toward the U500. However, a bit of forgiveness in a long iron can also be appreciated, like in the U510.
For the record, I have decent ballstriking ability for an older guy (65). I'm a mid-single-digit player. I can find the center of the clubface.....most days. I play Titleist players distance irons and am out there on the course virtually everyday. So, I am not afraid of the U500, assuming it doesn't play like a muscleback! (Been there, done that.)
Just interested to hear your thoughts after having played one or the other for awhile. What level of golfer are you? Is a hybrid easier or harder for you to hit than the U-series utility? Do you feel you get more distance out of the Utility iron than you would a regular one of the same loft in your iron set?
Just looking for opinions and consideration data from some of those who have played the U-series to add to my decision-making reservoir of research and info. Thanks in advance.
