2018 Goals

- less club ho’ing
- more focus on the game , esp the wedges 80-120
- emphasis on the gym

-More consistent with this club at higher velocities (should be such a weapon for me and it’s not)

    If you swing hard and miss, it hurts a bit.

Counter balance , a bit softer Butt , IMOP offered a touch better launch

I didn’t believe the hype on these , but after expirementing some, the tensi is a real deal

I would say they do play slightly soft to flex; I tipped the White fairway and Tensi about +.5 extra vs the Fujis and Graphite Designs

Installed the Orange in the driver and the D+ 90 TX in , WOW , very very anti left on both

Silver Bullet - Tour Issue Deep Faced M2 16” w/ Diamana D+ 90 TX tipped 2.5”

D2753991-2141-4F7A-BFF1-030156DC4D8B.jpeg FC944E86-80A6-4271-99CF-A2A446A90BC5.jpeg

Installed into a Tour Issue Deep face 16” M2 , 14.2 * measured loft

First impression, probably not the best trackman session , tested the club after a heavy lifting session of legs and back, pushing 40 I’m certainly not 21 any more and not a good idea

My best with a 3w is around 110ish (115 driver ) but only mustered up 107 for this session

With 107 thoughts on performance

best Carry vs best carry of a previous set up (This Head with AD DI 9x tipped 2”)

Track Man
Ad di Launched about 2 higher , carry with the AD DI on most shots where 270 with best shots going 281 BS. Low 160’s
- spin 3000 ish 2800 to 3500 depending on shot played - different session , not weight training prior

D+ 90TX , launch consistency around 9.5 to 10.0* , Carry around 260 to 270 , roll out was a more due to spin
Spin mid 2500 never broke 3000 bs 158 to 160ih , also the misses where less severe than the ADDI

While I’m not a HUGE fan of the spin being THAT low with the 3w, not really wanteing it Roll out like it is BUT the head with this shaft combo is 100% ANTI left, even throwing the club from the top its thought to get it moving left

Losing about 10yds carry, but gaining NO miss left which I might try to live with , but the run out could be significant, I’m really not trying to construct a distance club

Anyone have any suggestions of a thought higher launching shaft, that is as ANTI left as this D+90TX , I might need a 15.7* head vs the current head @ 14.2 , coupled the 90TX shaft with a higher lofted head might be the ticket

NOTE Swing weight is a bit high as D6 43” , static weight is down @ 358* D+ 90TX vs 362 (ADDI)

Very interesting club , I think it CPM at 280 , my 2 iron is 290 ss around 105

Looking for your opinion on DG X100 vs DG X7. I see that you are a big user of the DG X7 shafts. I currently play X100 hard stepped and my swing speed 102 to 104 MPH. I am considering switching to the X7 shafts but want some opinions on them.

In your opinion, what is the main difference between the 2 shafts? Do you think I could handle them with my swing speed?

I appreciate your input.

IMOP weight is the biggest difference for me and butt diameter

134 g and .610 butt

Yes the cpm is higher than x1 but the former two factors are the biggest differentials

What’s your swing speed 6 iron?  I’m 105 with a two iron and 6’3 245

I’d try to build a Test club with one see if u like it

Swing speed with a 6i is 102 to 104. Sorry forgot to add that. Do you think I have enough speed to handle the shafts?

Yeah it is pretty quick. I think that the last time i was fit for irons I was spinning DGx100 in the 7i about 7,700 RPM's. How much can I expect spin to drop?
