Let us know how that Type R FW is.    Was thinking about getting the 13.5 deg to match it up with my driver but ended up just doing 18 deg Type R hybrid instead.

In an (desperate) attempt to make my putting better, I bought this used beauty ;) very cheap just wanted to test if the toe hang and shape works. First few rolls on the carpet are promising. Not JDM but these were supposed to put a good roll on the ball. Just an experiment. First time using a super stroke grip as well (pistol GTR 2.0).

I nearly bought a Yes 'Donna' purely because it has the same name as my wife! Lol.

Picked up an I-Brid Chapter 2 19 deg following many raving reviews by users.
Was in search for a UT to match up with my Grandista woods so it was perfect timing.
Gave it a whirl this week at the range and my first impression is that this club is really really good! One of the most anti-left UTs that I have hit. 
This CH-1 stainless steel cup face has a Titanium like feel. The shaft is an ATTAS EZ 75 S which feels a bit light for me but it's a very good smooth shaft ad pretty stable.  The only slight dislike is the sound and feel.  I prefer the 455 stainless steel "spongy"  feel  of the Modart UT but I guess I can't have everything.
In this case, the performance and versatility overweighs the slight dislike of the sound and feel.   
Would recommend this for someone looking for a player's UT that does not hook!

Nice!!  I really like the flow neck on it.   Much more cleaner looking than a typical plumbers neck.   Hope it works out for you!

Spot on with your observations. Not the biggest fan of the feel (it is not bad either), but it simply performs. I don't see anything replacing it anytime soon. Have a 22 and 19*. The 22* is crazy accurate.

I also prefer the look of the flow neck. I also wanted quite a bit of toe hang to experiment with. Those are the 2 reasons I went with the "Tracy II". Seems to be quite a heavy head which is good because I shortened it to 33"

That and the Tracey are like the ibrids...they just work...feel is not the best but fine, there's something to the grooves...puts a really nice roll on the ball...
