Hello I have a M1 from last year with a Tour AD Shaft and I do love it.
Ive played Titleist drivers since the 905R but switch to TM last season.  Hated the Crown on the D2.  

But I've been talking to D2 players and they love the Driver.   I honestly miss the feel and consistency of Titleist Drivers.

Looking to pull the Trigger on a 917D2 with a Tour AD DI6 but would love to hear some real full season reviews from the excellent members here.

Thanks!!!

Titleist drivers are alway solid - Played them all right up to 917 but went M2 instead.

Im sure with the right shaft the 917 is just as good as anything else but honestly Ive never hit one.

can anyone explain the launch characteristics of the 917D2 head? HIGH / LOW? Forgiving?

If there are those out there who have been playing the 917 for a full season, chances are, they love it.  I had it out for a couple rounds and loved the sound and feel but was disappointed with overall performance.  It just didn't do anything better than my 913 D2, that's not to say that it's bad but it wasn't any longer and in all honesty I don't think it is as forgiving as it should be.  I have sold the head and moved on to a G400 so we'll see how that goes.  

I have never had an issues with any Titleist drivers I have played, the 917 D2 for some reason just didn't do it for me.

I switched to the 917D2 from a 910D3 after getting fit at Titleist. I didn't think anything would replace the 910 as I knew exactly what it would do and none of the later releases gave me anything better, so I kept in in the bag. For me the 917 has that same feeling but is longer due to improved ball speed. I had a DI6x in the 910 and now a Rogue MAX in the 917. I put the DI in for a few rounds, but switched back to the MAX. Club head is 9.5 set at B2 with 10gram neutral weight.

Can anyone who went through a fitting recall the spin differences between the D2 and D3 heads? One of the earlier posts mentions the D2 head was not as forgiving as they hoped. I loved the sound and feel of the D3, but wanted something a little more forgiving. In the past the D2 spun so much for me I just couldn't consider it.

Gamed the 917D2 all year after getting fitted. I wanted a higher ball flight this year so I went with a 10.5' with the option to bring it down to 9.75'. The D2 spun less and was more consistent than the D3 for me. I use the 12gm neutral weight and have had my best season off the tee. The forgiveness is noticeable. I can often see exactly where I caught the ball after each shot and I've been surprised more than once with the result of an off-center hit, in a good way.

Same situation for me. 1st edition M1 is the only non-Titleist item in the bag. I've wanted to go back to Titleist but they were always too spinny for me. Thinking about making the switch back with the 917

I played the 910D2 with kiyoshi purple for a few years before getting fit for the 917D2 with rogue silver. I picked up a few yards and kept the same control. D3 got me a little more distance but really lost distance on mishit.

Picked one up a few weeks back 9.5. It came with a Fuji Pro vista 75 stiff. 1st time out I popped my Aldila Tour Blue stiff in it and hit it great, next time out the fuji, obviously 2 different animals, high and right all day, last time out tour blue, C2 and draw weight...absolute fairway finder! With this setting the ball flight was pearcing, long and straight. Great feeling and great sound. Felt better than my 915d2
Now I'm sure tomorrow it'll be a nightmare

Went D3 and love it. Was not a fan of the shape of the D2 and I always fit into lower spin heads. Almost as straight as the Fly Z which was a fairway finder, but quite a bit longer due to reduced spin. Love the sound and feel.

Interesting... I was hitting the D3 in the bay the other day and I was surprised at how easy it was to hit straight.  Easier than the D2 was for me which I found really weird.  I love the look of it, feel was a little harder than the D2, maybe the KK ini shaft in the D3???  It still has me thinking of trading the G400 back in but my SS with the Ping is 3-4 mph faster.... hard to leave that.  Ball speeds were only 1-2 mph faster with the G400 though....  D3 definitely has my interest.

Iíve never had my D3 on a launch monitor and really donít care about numbers.  Itís plenty long and a fairway finder.

I found it by accident.  I was hitting Epic subzero at an outdoor fitting this spring at miles of golf in Cincinnati and not loving it.  Tried 3 different shafts. No thanks. No love.

Fitter on a whim gave me a D3 in fuji tour spec and immediately fell in love. Love sound, love shape, Love ball flight. Credit card. Done.

Only got better 2 months later when I was goofing around like a true mental WRXer and tried a Kuro Kage dual core 70tx.  Lowered flight and spin a bit. Bingo!   Awesome.  Has stayed in bag all year.

P.s.  I hot melt all my heads because I play my driver at 43.5Ē.  Sounds even better with hot melt. Toned down the pitch a little.

Were you hitting the two drivers at the same length?  The reason I ask is because the Ping is stock 45.75" and the Titleist is stock 45".  .75" doesn't sound like a lot but you would definitely pick up some swing speed, maybe even as much as 3-4 mph.  I noticed an increase when I switch to the G400 from a 45" shafted driver.

any long term 917 D2 reviews??

I really am interested in playing one this year.  In my past history nothing beats the consistency of the Titleist drivers. (Ive had 905 983K 909 910 913 915)

I have a DI6 X that I haven't played in my 917 as I've been playing the XTorsion Copper, but will give it a try soon. Could only be a good combination based on my experience with it raising launch and lowering spin in my 915.

Speaking of which, I like the 917 much more than the 915 because of the richer (deeper) sound, better feel, and lower spin. The dark gray color is really appealing and reminiscent of Titleist woods of 905 and before.

I have had my 917D2 in the bag now since October 2016. I had chopped and changed between a couple of shafts but having settled into one I have found it to be  fantastic club.

I have had the 975D, 975JVS, 905R, 909D3, 913D3 and 915D2 in my bag previously. The longest of those for me has been the 913D3 and I would say that on absolute middles hits, it is the longest driver that I have ever played. The 915D2 was probably the straightest. The 917D2 is a combination of the two and it is working really well.

I did try the D3 when I was fitted into the 917. It was longer than the D2 but on mishits, I was just losing too much.

For me, it's brilliant. I could never get used to the sound of the 915, it was just too loud. If I was hitting range balls I genuinely wondered if it might damage my ears.

It's amazing - the feel is smooth but tight, and the launch is mid-high with low spin. Really phenomenal shaft. The Green would be closer to your TG, but I only have experience with the TX (higher quality materials) versions. The Copper launches higher and spins about the same as the Green, but is counterbalanced.

anyone gaming 917 with Tour AD DI ??

I have a DI6 X that I haven't played in my 917 as I've been playing the XTorsion Copper, but will give it a try soon. Could only be a good combination based on my experience with it raising launch and lowering spin in my 915.

Speaking of which, I like the 917 much more than the 915 because of the richer (deeper) sound, better feel, and lower spin. The dark gray color is really appealing and reminiscent of Titleist woods of 905 and before.
How do you like the x torsion in the 917? I play a tour green in my 917,  and was thinking about trying the x torsion.

It's amazing - the feel is smooth but tight, and the launch is mid-high with low spin. Really phenomenal shaft. The Green would be closer to your TG, but I only have experience with the TX (higher quality materials) versions. The Copper launches higher and spins about the same as the Green, but is counterbalanced.
Thanks, really like the feel of the tour green, but want something a little higher launching.

The 917 D2 is great. I've been playing the 9.5 with a tensei orange v2 70tx. It's as long as anything else out there for me and feels great. Crazy forgiving too. It's my favorite Titleist driver since the 910. It sounds great and performs really well. I've hit everything out there and there's a few with less spin, the ballspeed is up with any of them and forgiveness is only matched by the ping

Anyone go from 915D3 to 917D2. With the newer balls, I have borderline too little spin with my 915D3 with Diamana 70 White. Solid hits are in the ideal 16-17 launch with 17xx spin. However, mishits can be 14xx spin with the newer balls and I believe the 917D3 may be lower spin yet. Hence why I am considering the 917D2.

I've had the 917D2 in my bag for around a year or so and i dont foresee anything kicking it out at any point soon. I play the 8.5* D2 with Hzrdus Black 62grm 6.5X and I don't believe there's another club on the market that can beat it consistently. Long, Low spin bombs with decent run out that find fairways.
