for me the synergy is much more stable, and lower spinning. Same low/low-mid launch; but i felt that the v2 got a bit loose on me while this is much more dependable and consistent.

V2 is just like Copperhead TX

Synergy is lower spin and flatter launching.

The link will allow you to compare Kuro Kąge Dual Core XT or Black Mamba to hzrdus black, which should allow a nice comparison to Synergy Proto.

http://www.golfwrx.c...0#entry16405828

Quick comparison is that hzrdus black launches about .5-1 degree lower than kkdcxt and spins about 200-300 rpm more.

So this new Synergy spins and launches lower than the Orange V2 and the DCXT? Impressive.
Any chance you can review the 2017 Diamana X? That's their flagship shaft I believe.

Keep up the great work!

There were two prototype versions of the X that were submitted for testing. One spun and hit higher, the other was a bit flatter. I'd say the closest thing I can compare the Diamana X to would be a Tensei Pro Orange V2 on one and probably more like a Tensei Pro Blue for the other. I'm unsure which became the retail model.

For me in the same head the synergy is higher with less spin than my V2!

Glad to hear that. It's not a low launching shaft at all for me, but it is massively low spin.

So far I'm impressed, now I need to compare to my green mamba 60tx!

loving this thing so far -- unfortunately it's been too dang cold the last week to get to a range or play. sigh. winter is coming...

The 65 is nearly the same in terms of the heavier Kuro Kage and Black Mamba, but with a bit more swing speed because of the weight.

update --

this is firmly in the bag. for me, it was the slight uptick in launch angle that's giving me much more consistent results. i hit all but 2 fairways yesterday (despite being sore AF) - and despite the cold conditions, got all close to 300y (it was sub 50*F), and 2 over 3 bills.

the ball has a piercing trajectory to the apex, goes for days, then hits and runs like a pissed off squirrel.

on the sim i was getting:

AVG SS: 117.3
Smash: 1.47
Launch: 12.2
Spin: 2218
Ball Speed: 169.7
Carry: 287.4
Peak Height: 103'

predominant shot shape: dead nuts straight.

total is irrelevant IMO since it's just a sim.

That's a very nice launch window and that sucker at 2200 should hit the ground HOT.

Yes this posting is exactly the same as the other topic lol but I just want to make sure all eyes have a chance to chime in!


For those of you that have been playing the shaft....

I'm trying to determine the best tipping length and want to hear some opinions before I move forward. I currently play a KK DC XT 70tx. Tipped 1/2". Getting very solid numbers. Low spin drives are very low and normal drives are hovering around 2100 2200.

I ordered the Synergy proto 65tx because I wanted to try the slightly lighter weight based on the higher swing and ball speeds from the testing. Should I tip this 1/2" as well? Would it make sense to tip it 3/4" or 1" to get the spin down slightly and hopefully keep launch similar or slightly higher?

Thanks for your thoughts!

Yes this posting is exactly the same as the other topic lol but I just want to make sure all eyes have a chance to chime in!


For those of you that have been playing the shaft....

I'm trying to determine the best tipping length and want to hear some opinions before I move forward. I currently play a KK DC XT 70tx. Tipped 1/2". Getting very solid numbers. Low spin drives are very low and normal drives are hovering around 2100 2200.

I ordered the Synergy proto 65tx because I wanted to try the slightly lighter weight based on the higher swing and ball speeds from the testing. Should I tip this 1/2" as well? Would it make sense to tip it 3/4" or 1" to get the spin down slightly and hopefully keep launch similar or slightly higher?

Thanks for your thoughts!
mine is currently untipped - 65TX, playing 45.25". haven't had issues with too much spin and control has been exceptional for me.

What shaft specs were you playing before the Synergy?
Taylormade M3 8.5* - Tensei Pro Orange 70TX
Taylormade 2016 M2 Deep Face 14* - Tensei Blue 90TX
Taylormade 790 UDI 2 Iron - Hzrdus Black 85g 6.5
Srixon 745 4-PW - KBS C Taper 130x softstepped 1x
Vokey 50* F Grind - KBS C Taper 130
Vokey Wedgeworks 54V grind - KBS C Taper 130
Vokey Wedgeworks 60K, low bounce - KBS C Taper 130
Evnroll 1.1 (yup...square bumpers!)

I'm having a difficult time reconciling come of the numbers for this shaft given that my SS is 106-110.  By all accounts, taking the Black Mamba numbers as a starting point, could one say that the Synergy "should" produce slightly better results?
Currently Under Evaluation:
=================
Titleist TS3 @ 9.5º w/ Diamana DF 60TX
Taylormade M3 3HL @ 17º w/ Tensei Blue 65S
King F8 3H @ 19º w/ Aldila ATX Green Tour 85S
Callaway Raw MB's 4-PW w/ ProjectX 5.5

Synergy will spin less. Assuming you need that, then yes.
