Taylormade M2 tour 3HL w/GD AD DI 8X
Mizuno MP Fli Hi 18* w/ GD AD DI 95x
Mizuno MP 59 w/DG Tour issue X100
Titleist Vokey 50, 55, 60 w/DG tour issue S400

Driver shaft will go in- Taylormade M3
Currently playing- Elements Chrome 7f5t
Agree to participate in reviews- Absolutely
Desired shaft- MAD Pro 6x w/ GP MCC 4+ midsize Black/Grey
Testing- I would start by comparing the MAD against my current shaft on a launch monitor, and when it finally stops snowing outside, I will take them both out for on course testing to see what works when it really matters. I enjoy trying new things, but I don’t change them unless I know for sure it will help so any review would be very honest based on only my results

        Graphite Design Tour AD-GP 7S, Taylormade M2 10.5 set to 9.5
What is your current handicap?
        Hovering around 14
What's your driver swing speed?
        Between 98-102
Where are you located (City, State, Country)?
        Humble, TX, USA
What driver (brand/model) will you be installing these in?
        My Taylormade M2
What shaft do you currently play now?
        Tour AD-GP 7S
If selected, do you agree to participate in an ongoing testing / review thread?  We ask that you provide hi-res, quality photos, and provide a review of the shaft. NOTE: You are responsible for supplying the driver head.
        Yes, I will be as thorough as possible.

AVAILABLE SHAFTS:
MAD PRO 6-S, MAD PRO 6X or 7X, MAD 45 or 55 R and MAD 65 R or S.  Full details on MAD shafts here.
Desired shafts. Info needed:
Weight Pro 65g
Flex Stiff
Adapter Taylormade
Grip Golf Pride MCC
Total Driver Length 45.5”

Please explain briefly how you would approach testing these shafts:
        Phase 1 would be to take the test shaft with my current setup to an indoor monitor. Warm up with my current setup to establish norms, followed by shots on the test shaft to compare spin, carry, accuracy, and distance to my own setup.
        Phase 2 would be to hit both my current setup and the test shaft at an outdoor range under typical weather conditions to compare real world ball flight tendencies.
        Phase 3 is to test on course. Hit all driver holes with two same mode balls using each shaft to compare distance and accuracy. Report results including any photo evidence of differences in performance.

Please explain briefly how you would approach testing these shafts:  First would take my two gamers with the MAD to the range. Would start with my trusted TP on Trackman. Once loose I would hit a series of 10 balls and compare trackman numbers to desired numbers. Also focus on dispersion and flight without trackman. Also the feel of the new MAD compared to my TP

What is your current handicap? 7
What's your driver swing speed? 118

Desired shafts. Info needed: Mad Pro 7x
Weight 70-80g
Flex X
Adapter Ping G
Grip Pure DTX Midsize
Total Driver Length 45”
Please explain briefly how you would approach testing these shafts: First, I would test on track man outdoors -20 balls with my own driver, then 20 balls with the Mad Pro. All data will be recorded. Then, I would leave the range, go directly to the 1st tee and play 10 holes where driver is appropriate. I would begin with my driver and record the results on fairways hit, yards left to the hole and other small points about relation to where I normally am on that hole off of the tee. Then, I’d loop back to the first tee and the same 10 holes, collect the same data and this time switch out my shaft with the Mad Pro. Then I’d analyze the results (having a data background helps) and report the findings while also capturing photos, recording feel and other nuances.

Thanks for the opportunity
Cheers,
Jeff

  • Please explain briefly how you would approach testing these shafts:  I would first hit on the driving range with the MAD shaft and my current shaft.  After I was comfortable with both, I would then take 10 golf balls and put a red dot on the ones i hit with the MAD shaft and a blue dot on the ones hit with the Diamana.  I work/live at my golf course so this shouldn't be an issue to spend some extra time out there.  I would record the difference between the balls and see which shaft flies furthest and most consistent.  Next, I would play 2 rounds with the MAD shaft installed and 2 with the Diamana and record fairways hit/average distance (shot with range finder).  I would then take all the data from my testing and compose a well written review to post to the designated forum.  I look forward to hearing from you and thank you for your consideration.

  • It's pretty easy to get out by myself on my home course on Friday afternoon.  I would go to hole #5 (Trilogy at Vistancia in Peoria, AZ), which is a wide open 586yd par 5 and locate a center line target.  From there I can track total distance and distance from my aiming line to compare distance and accuracy with my current shaft (which was fit for me) to the MAD Pro.  I would ensure that I got at least 3 solid hits with each combo and then GPS them for distance and again measure from my center line aim point.  Additionally, I have full access to the LM at the PGA Tour Superstore...I can take my own ball in and also compare 3 - 5 solid hits with each club on the launch monitor so that ballspeed, spin, carry distance, total distance, and accuracy could be more specifically measured

Upstate NY provides plenty of opportunities to play indoor during the long winter.  I have a very good idea what my gamer performance is and what it feels like.  I would set up a date with a indoor bay and see how this shaft performs on the monitor.  After that I'd head to the outdoor range and see what the ball flight difference is as well as continuing to evaluate performance.  Lastly I'd take it on the course for a few rounds to see how it performs during play.

Thanks for the opportunity

I like to go back and forth on the range with the current gamer and the new set up. After I get a feel for how the shaft is performing I go out to the course and hit 3 or 4 balls on each tee shot and compare to where I usually am on those holes. If all is checking out, I like to get in to a money game and see how the shaft performs for a round under pressure.

Thanks for your consideration!

Please explain briefly how you would approach testing these shafts
Little history on my M3 driver: Preordered it in February with the Matrix Black Tie 80.  The shaft fit me perfectly, dropping my RPMs into the magical 2000 range.  There was delay on that shaft until April, so I’ve been using a demo head and my previous gamer, a Graphite Design Tour AD DJ8X.  Turns out that Matrix is out of business, so I just went through a second round of driver shaft testing, settling on the Tensei White Pro. I will be spending the next month both on the course and using Trackman to fine-tune my numbers.  It would be great to test another premium shaft against the Tensei, because my options were limited during my testing.

[*]Please explain briefly how you would approach testing these shafts
First I would compare the quality of the graphics and looks of the shaft.  I would then test it on trackman doing three sets of five swings rotating the Graphite Design Mad, 70tx Synergy Black, Black xtorsion 70TX and a  Tensei Ck pro white TX.  Once I collected the data I would take it to the course and would hit it against one of the previous listed shafts. Including normal swings, going after it, and shaping shots. I would the do the same over the course of two weeks with each of the listed shafts.  
During the course of the testing I would provide updates on the site with course conditions, comparisons of distance/feel and my overall opinion of the shaft.  In the end, I would play a few rounds with the shaft at my home course and give a final review of the product.

Please explain briefly how you would approach testing these shafts. I have 2 M2 heads and would hit them side by side.  First I would take them to the range to get a better feel for the shaft and how it works with my swing.  Then take the 2 clubs to the course. Using my GPS I would hit them side by side on the course for distance, despertion, Feel,'spin and ball flight.  i would also bring a few of my other shafts to test against the Mad Pro 7X, (Matrix Altus LT, GD ADDI 7X, Matrix Ozik TP7HD  and Tensei Blue.

Please explain briefly how you would approach testing these shafts

Launch monitor testing first to post spin rate, launch angle, carry distance, and dispersion. Then range testing with just feedback on how the shaft feels compared to my rogue.

Then on-course testing. First, sleeve of balls for each shaft. Compare total distance and dispersion for 3 or 4 total rounds (9-12 balls for each shaft). Second, one ball off each par 4 and par 5 for 9 holes to compare results of drives that matter.

Please explain briefly how you would approach testing these shafts - I would start by testing the shaft at my local range with TopTracer technology. After gathering the stats/launch numbers then I would see if it translated well to the course.  Can I flight it, hit draws and fades. How does it feel, typical ball height, reaction from others, etc...
