Survey: Best of JDM Hybrid/UT's
« on: March 16, 2018, 09:26:00 PM »
Unclej started some surveys some while ago but it never came to hybrid/UT's

There are so many good one's out there but for me the best are ...

A Grind type-d (24)
JBeam TF-Ti UT (21)
(hon. mention: Onoff type-s 2013 (21))

For me very often the same ut doesn't work well in other lofts.
So f.e. if I like one in 21 deg. it doesn't work that good in 24 (with the A Grind maybe being an exception).

A Grind: already enough good things being said about it. For me it works especially good as 4 hybrid with 24 deg. It is also the only wood type hybrid which I could use as an iron replacement. You just hit on the ball as you would with an iron.

JBeam: Have been testing the TF-Ti UT for several rounds and I can say it is one of the most forgiving hybrids I have ever played.
It is on the bigger side but hides it size quite well. Behind the ball the head is easy to align with the emphasized top line.
It works well from the tee and out of the rough and bad lies (but prefer the A Grind if it gets really nasty).

The only bad thing I can say about it is the sound. Especially hits on the toe side sound awkward but see hardly any loss in distance.

(Sound the onoff wins)

Ah...good topic. not sure the new ones are much better.

Roddio hyut..my fave as of now
RomarRo R-gr8 mid size all around er I think this was '14 or '15?
On-off  prospec and type s '13 r as good as anything for me really

Shafts I prefer are basi ut, tprx ut and Roddio i7 or i8 in that order.

Man, that jbeam looks tasty...

I havenít tried that many UTs. Ibrid, the ONOFF S type, original cup face RomaRo. Fell in love with the Type R RomaRo and havenít even thought about getting rid of it. Amazing stick.

For me, I've just 4 brands of UTs left :

Proceed Ti-UT.  This has the DAT 55 face. I really like this.  The 15* is the head that has survived all kinds of whim and fancy. That said, if there's a 15* UT in another obscure, I'm up for a test.  The 15 has the Crime of Angel FW90 shaft and the 21 has the Crazy STUP UT75.

Modart. Still really like these.  Shafted with Basileus Alpha FW 75.

A-Grind Proto UT.  Perhaps the deepest face of all.  As with all A-Grind stuff, great value for money.  Shafted with Basileus Alpha FW75.

Nice collection there.

I like shorter and heavier shafts.
JBeam: Attas EZ 95 (39.5")
A Grind: MCH 90 (38.75")

Also the reason I liked the type-s with the original ns pro steel shaft

#1 JDM UT for me is the Egg I+ 4UT with stock shaft. Fugly as sin, so keep a HC on it when not being hit!

RomaRo iBrid Ch2 19*
RomaRo Ray 21*
OnOff ProSpec 21*

I heard good things about the J beam. Really wanted to try but the lofts are not what I am looking for. Saw the Agrind type D in a store in Japan. The face looks so close its for sure a hook machine so i didn't even want to try.

I like the original a grind UT. But launch is abit too low for me so I switch to the Callaway Apex which is great.

Hacker I should have put the 2014 egg I+ in my list..,I just can't ht bad shots with the egglets...I still have them...put them in the bag if 5i or 21* Roddio ever go south, they fix me right up.  Hit the 6ut to within 4" from 165 last time it was in the bag...soooo easy...

Iíve always wanted to try one but the clubs in those spots in my bag have become so irreplaceable for me that I have never tried one. Iíve turned into a bad ho! 😬

You should try one. They are that good. I prefer them to the type R  ute

Was wondering when the Ryoma will be mentioned.
No doubt very forgiving and super long but also prone to topping the ball - at least for me
