Little more info, - I'm 55, I start off my round swinging slowly then build speed up during round, hence the ss range(98-103 at dicks driver demo, hit about a dozen balls). I typically carry my stock 7 iron 167,( have irons bent 2 degrees weak 36* 7 iron) Planning on keeping my TM at standard 45.5" length

Mister2cool  -  Did you tip your driver shaft any on your Taylormade? seen we have similar drivers models.

We have similar swing speed and you might be a little faster. I play my driver at 46" and SS is roughly the same as you got at Dicks. My 7 iron is 33* and typical carry is about the same as you. I installed mine straight in with no tipping and it had been working absolutely perfectly for me. I think if you are more in 105+ range after you warm up, you can tip it 1/2" but I don't think you need to go more than that. The shaft is very stable that you really don't need to rely on tipping to stiffen it up.

Did you pick up a handcrafted or no-handcrafted version? I haven't experienced non-HC version so I can't say for sure if those play true to spec or slightly softer like most OEM version.

Thanks for your help. I picked up the Handcrafted Version? I have hit a friends hzrdus black 75 -  6.5 flex and had a really nice flight, just a little stiff for me. Was thinking the Hzrdus black - 6.0 untipped would have been ideal for me after I warmed up and played about 6 holes.

Wanting the Even Flow to flight/spin similar to the Hzrdus Black 6.0 straight in(untipped), or as close as possible, that's why I'm thinking EFB either straight in or tip 1/2" only. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

I had HZRDUS Black 65g 6.0 untipped earlier last year for testing as well. I did love the flight and had pretty good success but was having a hard time with it's harsh\stiff impact feel. That's why many referred to that as "Rebar". EF Black plays very similar to that but has vastly improved feel throughout the swing.
Honestly EF is so smooth that if you played 6.5, you probably wouldn't even feel that it's too stiff. You'd have to look at ball flight numbers to really figure out if you need to step down on flex. Some of us went half a flex down last year with our HZRDUS T1100 shaft with a small tipping to give ourselves some room to allow some tired swings later in a round. I think you can safely tip 1/2" just to be sure you don't overpower it on your faster swings.

Thanks for your help, I really appreciate all of your experience.  It sounds like the untipped 6.0 efb should fit me perfectly and bring my M3 to life!

I prefer a low launch shaft around 70grams, with the smoother feel, and it sounds like the EF Black (67g) fits that feel, without feeling whippy. Also if playing it strait in would probably help later in the round when I begin to lose energy from the summer heat, I still like to walk (using push cart) for exercise, and typically feel drained after the 15th hole.

I was fitted for the 17' M1 when they came out at GG, they put me into the stock Hzrdus yellow 6.0 (non-handcrafted tipped 1" -TM standard), I got good results when I was warmed up but always felt the shaft would have played better for me with a little less tipping and slightly heavier weight or less counterbalance.
