I have a Taylor made gapr. A buddy swears by his Titleist u510. New cobra offering coming soon. I’m considering changing out the gapr. Who has experience with these or others.

I'm old school I guess. I don't have a utility club.

I actually just made a switch to a GAPR after finding a price I couldn't pass up and am loving it so far. I had an older Apex UT that was awesome but didn't gap properly otherwise I don't have any experience.

I love my TEE CBX iron woods, very easy to generate ball speed and very straight

I just swapped out my U85 for an M6 hybrid looking for some more forgiveness. Seems good so far but I need some time on the course with it.

Peak back a few pages in the Tec thread, I threw some data up in there a while back (y)

It’s fun.

I have a ping crossover that’s hit or miss. Feels great when you actually hit one but it’s not consistent

I was fitted for an X forged UT 21 degree at the grandaddy a few months ago and love it.

I tried a used Gapr 3 mid. Not sure if it was the shaft or what but I couldn’t hit it at all. That Forged Tec looks sweet. I hit my irons so low though that I think all I really need is a hollow body 4 iron for a driving iron. 🤣

I agree and believe that very few players strike consistently good shots with a utility club/driving iron. This is why these type clubs are not as popular as hybrids or fairway woods.

I was hoping to try a few utility clubs this summer to swap out my hybrid. See if leisure travel is permitted any time this season...

I have used the Srixon U85 and got along with it well, just found that I couldn't get the distance I was looking for.

I also have a U85 that I carry, 2I and a Hogan 4i Utility. Both are great and have their place. To me the Hogan is exceptionally easy to play.
