Had the Roddio UT (older version see pic above) on the course. Got the same good impression I had from the practice range. Very forgiving. Even thin hits get up good in the air. Flush it and goes high and long. For me the Roddio i-9 shaft feels somehow muted, less lively and very different to the Attas shafts I usually have in my hybrids (honestly prefer the Attas feel) but no doubt the results speak for Roddio shaft.

Comparing it to the similar looking Onoff the Type-S/Kuro

Sound …well the sound here the Onoff is certainly the winner. The Roddio with all-titanium head sounds little muffled and feel is more on the softer side.

Similar looking at address but the Roddio is slightly bigger 127.3cc vs Onoff 117.8cc. The MOI onoff 2735g/cm2 vs. 2098g/cm2 of the Roddio would suggest the onoff is less prone to react on mishits but my impression is that the Roddio holds the line much better on mishits.

Works very well from the deck and with deep face especially good from the T. Definitely a keeper for me.

Just got back from the range where I brought my Romaro Type R 18 deg Hyb paired up with a Crazy STP Iron 85. 
This thing is so automatic I feel like I can hit it blind folded (of course not for real )   
I'm getting about 215 to 220 carry which is about what I should expect.     Sound and feel are nice too. 
Perfect for using it on a first time course!

I am almost hopeless with FW so have to rely on UT for my 2nd or 3rd shot.  While I haven't try most to the UT mentioned here, the only one that gives me the consistency and distance is the Ryoma UT.  They used to be a hook machine for me but now I know how to control them with a high draw.
GP 1 minute with Diamana DF
Katana Voltio III 13*
Ryoma 2U, 3U, 4U and 5U
Grindworks DP 6-AW with Fire Express Spirit I-65
Epon Tour Wedge 54 with MCI solid

I’m in the same boat. You should try out the Freiheit 18 hybrid. Maybe not Ryoma long but gets the ball out there.
