I just bought this Taylor made R9 TP rescue for replacement of my old hybrid. I have to say this club has, by far for me at least, the best trajectories and forgiveness. It has made my game more enjoyable.
The taylor made r9 tp hybrid I purchased was substituted for the ping i15. I must say after hitting all hybrids across the board, this club has by far the best trajectory workability and feel you could look for in any club. with the options of FTC this club is leaps and bounds above competitors. shaft properties are a perfect match regardless of the shaft options taylormade provides. I went back and purchased the 4HY and may even take on the 5HY.
I have previously left my long irons at home because I haven't been able to controll them. This hybrid has really improved my results because I'm now able to hit longer on those long par 4 and 5 holes.
