I've loved it in my hybrids.  Put the 80 in my 3 wood. Liking the 60 x in my driver.  I don't think it's considered too sexy at this point but seems to work for me. Just wondering if I'm missing out on an upgrade somewhere.   Contemplating toying around with a 70 in the driver and a 90 in a driving iron if anyone's tried that.

It's still a great shaft. I have one in my hybrid and only took it out of my driver after finding a Veylix Rome for cheap. The Rome has similar performance to the whiteboard but feels a little better to me.

Played the D+ 70x in my DBD 816 A, had to turn the loft up to 11 but it was a killer combo, still have it in the spare bag.
Damn you for starting this topic, thinking of pulling it out for a test run at the range now.  
Love my current setup but will take the D+ for a spin soon.
A lot has been said about the Tensei range & the general concenses is that they are a step up.
Is it worth an upgrade????
Not for me itís not, as I donít feel they will give me 20y more or improve on my fairways hit which currently averages around 10-12 / round. But for anyone else it might be worth a look, the D+ is solid shaft though.
If you like it & it works, stick with it, Iíve been down this road of having a winning combo only to chase something else with shafts that donít suit my swing & going backwards.
If you can hit another combo without much expense then try it.

I still use it in a couple of my drivers...still very relevant in my book.  Newer isn't always better...one of my favorite shafts of all time the Speeder 757...it still feels like I've come home when I swing a driver with that shaft...and the results are still positive.

Yeah I donít really want to go down the shaft rabbit hole so probably stick with. Been trying a few driving iron shafts and thatís been a pain. Think Iím gonna get a D+ 90 and see what happens there. Been working with all my other long clubs. They just seem to produce a penetrating flight, not too much spin while still having a nice feel.

If it wasn’t for the Tensei Orange I would probably be playing a D+. It’s just as good as anything out there, great feel and a profile that works for a lot of people.

Between work and Ohio winter I just got my first round in yesterday with a d+ 70x. I haven’t hit that many fairways in years. Paired w an epic sz, I hit some of the most controlled and longest balls of my life. Total game changer. Am I supposed to put it down and get a tensei now?

I have the D+ 60 gen 2 in my M2 driver and love it.  Very accurate and stable.  I played the 70 D+ gen 2 in my 915D3 but went a little lighter in my M2 to try to increase some swing speed.  To me it is hard to be Diamana shafts.  I have the S+ gen 2 in my 3 wood and hybrid as well.  It is a fantastic shaft for the money.

Although I really like the PX Hzrdus Yellow as well.

The only shaft that swaps with my D+ is the Hzrdus Black. I love em both in the big dog. I play the D+ an inch shorter than standard.
I felt really good about that shot....
Until I hit it.

Follow up question for you guys. What iron shafts do you think have a similar feel/ profile to the whiteboard?

Aldila Rogue Silver but then I saw you said iron shafts.

I'm playing Nippon NS Pro Modus3 Tour 105 in my irons but I don't believe they would be in the same category as the D+.

The White profile has always been a classic tip stiff/mid stiff/butt soft design which is the same type of profile as the good ole' DG X100.

Although I LOVE my Kuro Kage DC Silver, I still can't seem to let go of the D+ Limited 70S that I experimented with.  When I'm in "mid season form," it can be a beast paired with my Fly-Z+ or F8+ head.  I've had to go back to the lighter and friendlier KK while I work on some swing tweaks in the beginning of the year.  Right now I'm trying to decide whether to now look for the KK in a 70 gram, or the D+ in a 60, they both work so well for me for different reasons

Yeah, I'd say the X100 is a good match. I gamed those for years, but now play C-Taper 125 S+ in my irons.

Still have a D+ 72 out of a 913 D2... put a Ping tip on it and have had really good results in my G400 MAX.  It was said much earlier on, but a comparison was made to the HZRDUS Yellow... I was thinking the exact same thing.  Tip feels a little softer in the yellow to me but a very similar feel and performance.  Really great shaft.

Older post bump but I was hitting this combo in the sim last night and the shaft felt great. Typically I wouldn't quite find myself in a x stiff shaft as I'm typically in the 105ish swing speed and mid 150 ball speeds. The way this shaft loads seems to really fit with my swing. I was seeing balls speeds in the upper 150s with some north of 160. Dispersion was pretty good, no big left misses. Biggest problem was low launch though. Even with a 10.5 xr16 pro head turned up to 11.5 I was only getting 10-11ish degrees of launch. Not sure if that's more a shaft issue or a head issue?
