I think it's time to move on.


Just isn't working out, eh?

Unfortunately no. I've been dying to have it work.

That's a bummer to hear.  There have been some seriously mixed reviews in this test group.  It's been a wild ride.

When I was picked I was extremely hopeful that with this shaft and being fit for the first time i would never have to swap again. My fitting result made me doubtful that it would measure up to my self fit raijin and after a lot of use it was confirmed. Sad day.

My most recent round of golf was GREAT off the tee. I think I finally found my rhythm with my setup.

Averaged 274 from 8 drives, and found 5 fairways. So 62.5% of fairways. And the fairways I did miss, weren't wild shots. The ball flight was actually quite straight. They were just somewhat blind tee shots and odd angles to take, and my lack of course knowledge had me aiming at the wrong spots. So I hit the ball where I wanted to, I just hit it to places I shouldn't have.

Today the tpt was better but was hands down beat out by a hzrdus yellow. The TPT was too heavy and harder to load. The yellow was very similar to the raijin and paired with the g400 was just great. Spin was a little higher but flight and dispersion were markedly improved. Looks like the end of the road for me and the tpt. Thought about putting it in a fairway but probably won't. Thought about a grip change as a last ditch attempt to adjust the feel but I don't think it will help.

Thank you so much to GolfWRX and TPT for allowing me to test and be fit for one of the shafts.  It's been a lot of fun and maybe at some point I can find one that ticks all of the boxes. Glad others are happy with them!

Did you also try lighter TPT shafts in fitting? A lot of feedback focuses on shaft but the fitting is a major component.

I did but this is what they fit me to so I went with it. I don't remember how any of the others felt. It was hot with no a/c and I was beat.

I think a LOT of attribution for a club’s performance is mistakenly placed on the club - but it’s the fitting that matters the most, especially for shafts.

Read your review and was curious as to why they fit you into such a heavier swing weight? Do you think that attributes to it being heavy and harder to load vs the Hzrdus Yellow? Seems like the swing weight of the Hzrdus might be more suitable for your swing.

Bringing this back to say that the TPT is out for me. I have it in my M3 460 8.5 head and i was having issues with it launching extremely low and the peak height was extremely low too. In other words I was losing a huge amount of carry distance and in wet Wisconsin these past few months no carry distance = no distance at all.

So I wanted to continue using it, I really had some good results from it but that was before a bit of swing change to help reduce my AOA, when I had that swing it launched well and it really helped stop my big miss which was when I got too steep and hit it high and right. I think with a swing like that it was doing what it was advertised to do, help bring in my dispersion and control that miss. Now that I have really put some work in to be a better driver and reduce that AOA from -2.5 to -2 all the way to 0 to +1 I have found that all of its benefits have started to disappear.

That change brought along like I said above, a really low weak ballflight that just lost all carry. I didn't know what to do, I really tried hard to not blame the club, thats honestly the last thing I wanted to, I thought with that swing change I was just not hitting it like I wanted. Then after boosting the loft to 9.25 I started to see a higher ballflight but with increased spin and a big right bias. Thats something I absolutely hate and that made me bring out other drivers and different shafts.

The winner in bringing out older clubs and shafts was what I was playing previously, the HZRDUS T1100, to my immediate surprise it launched like the TPT at 9.25 but with the head standard at 8.5 and with obviously less spin, that combination immediately got my carry distance back and it lost that right bias that was making me angry on the TPT. Higher launching and lower spinning in the HZRDUS is obviously the key to more distance. Lastly, my biggest surprise is that the HZRDUS felt better, like a million times better. The shaft is loading better, it feels less harsh, and I can feel the clubhead better too. I know it's always been a knock on the HZRDUS that the feel is harsh but it felt much better next to the TPT.

It was a good run, but I just don't see myself going back to the TPT after what I have seen going back to the HZRDUS.

I have been enjoying my TPT since I was fit but have just recently picked up a Titleist TS3 to try out so I haven't been hitting my TM M3 as much.  I wouldn't mind swapping a Titleist tip on the TPT  and trying it in the TS3 but with all the problems with breakage that people have been having, I'm afraid to do any work on the shaft.  The walls in the butt end of the TPT shaft were so thin and I don't know if the tip is also thin and applying heat and putting on a new tip might end up causing failure.

Seems like many moons ago when this process first started for me.  First off let me say thanks yet again to TPT Golf.  The trip to see Jon Sinclair was a wonderful experience.  

This past weekend I had the honor of spending the day with Jon Sinclair at his studio facility in Euless TX (https://www.sinclairgolf.com/).  Jon works with a number of tour pros and has a lot of knowledge – especially when comes to gears 3D type stuff.  He also fits and builds for a number of tour guys and his facility is an awesome man-cave.

Jon picked me up from the hotel at 9AM and we got cracking right away on driver.  After getting some preliminary numbers with my current gamer we started different shaft/head combos.  We took at least 90 minutes on this but I eventually got settled in with this combo: [head] G400 10 LST, [shaft] 14.5 LKP LT

Dispersion was significantly tighter and ball speed increased about 3 mph on overage.  This was my best hit of the day:

It was fun and exhausting trying all the different shaft/head combos but this was the clear winner in terms of total performance.  I increased my ballspeed while tightening dispersion - doesn't get much better than that.  

Jon was a really down to earth, nice man that knows his s***.  Also, SwingMan stopped by to say hello.  It was a pleasure getting to meet a fellow WRX member while in TX.  SwingMan has been a student of Jon's for a while now and it was fun having the chance to meet up and get some great TX BBQ.  

If anyone has any questions I'd be happy to answer.  I haven't played with this setup on the course yet but I'll be sure to provide updates once I start gaming.

Impressive numbers Eric! Sounds like a very cool experience.  

I know you didn't get too much time in with the 15 but how much different did the 14.5 feel/perform from what you remember?

Scott, the feel is quite similar imo.  The 14.5 is a more stout version that is a little stiffer in the tip and butt section.  Turns out I really like the feeling of stout shafts so even though I got great numbers with the 15 Jon was able to get my dispersion tighter when we moved into the 14.5.  The extra stability is good for my swing as I'm sensitive to torque.

Let me add another note as to the most impressive part of TPT shafts.  My old setup: Cobra F7+ with Xtorsion Copperhead 70TX.  I got decent numbers with this setup but I had a hard time controlling the ball.  While testing with Jon the furthest point between my biggest miss left and my biggest miss right was 120 yards.  That's horrible and I'm not proud of that but I basically had 60 yards to miss on either side of my target.  

With the TPT my widest dispersion going from widest left to widest right was 70 yards.  

120 yards vs. 70 yards.  That's kind of a lot, people.

I’ll be seeing Jon Saturday morning. Really looking forward to it. I’m hoping we can find a fit that gives me the results I saw with that first 15 shaft I had.

Finally got to see what all the hype is about. Special thanks to GolfWRX, TPT Golf Shafts, and Jacques Intriere at Greenwich Golf Fitting Studio in Greenwich CT.

A little bit about me, Tall, lanky, speed to burn. Played hockey all my life thru college, didn't pick up golf until high school and have been playing pretty seriously for the past 6 years or so.

I've been playing a M3 440 9* with a Kiyoshi Black 75 05 at 44 1/4", prior to that was a 2016 M2 head with the same shaft, and my prior driver to that was a Cobra F6+ with a Matrix 8M2 in X flex. Always fought launching high and spinning high, but have hit some of the best drives of my life with the Kiyoshi Black, it's comfortable, the weight fits me well, it's familiar.

Warmed up with some 7 irons, hit a few with my gamer and then we went on to the TPT Shafts.

I tried the 15 LKP LT LW and the 15 MKP MT SW. Since I normally play my drivers short, and these fitting shafts were a little longer I was able to pick up some club head speed, but I've always felt I've gained speed after a hitting about 30 balls and then generally tire out after 60.

I honestly didn't notice too much of a difference between the two shafts. I've been recovering from a torn glute and am pretty much back at full strength, so we did throw out some bad balls, but overall both shafts felt and performed pretty similar for me. The one thing that I couldn't believe is how STABLE these feel. Even from the "waggle" test the 1st time it just feels  I didn't hit too many cuts with it, and while my bad swings still had some bad results, overall it just wanted to go straight.  While I turn over my Oban at times a little too much, the TPT seemed to want to go straight.  Ball speeds across all heads were low even on shots I felt I flushed. This could be due to the balls, the fitter had chrome soft x's and they appeared to have been hit a decent amount of times, I even broke one of them during the fitting, so that's possible but all other numbers seemed decent, so not exactly sure what happened there.

It still launches a little higher and spins a little higher than what is desirable.  My fitter and I both wonder if the 14.5 might help bring the launch and spin down a touch, which would help optimize my numbers, but since I was the 1st person he's fit into TPT and didn't have a 14.5 shaft we made use of what was available.

I still need to get the shaft and get it built and play a few rounds with it, let me know if anyone has any questions.  And for those of you who have been worrying about breakage, was constantly swinging the TPT's 120 and over and didn't have any issues, so it seems that the problems that were had during the initial production runs has been corrected.

It still launches a little higher and spins a little higher than what is desirable.  My fitter and I both wonder if the 14.5 might help bring the launch and spin down a touch, which would help optimize my numbers, but since I was the 1st person he's fit into TPT and didn't have a 14.5 shaft we made use of what was available.

Haven't received a shaft yet. My fitter and I are confused about who's supposed to reach out to TPT. He thinks based upon my swing and everything I'd probably be a good fit for the 14.5 seeing as I have speed to burn and could use a touch lower launch and spin, but he did not have one of those for me to try. If not I don't think the 15 MKP MT SW would be a bad fit, but my fitter said my gamer was already pretty optimal based upon what he'd seen.

Just wanted to provide a quick update: played two rounds and my shaft did not break.  Things are looking up :taunt:

Loving it so far.  Going to get another round or two with the new cannon and post my thoughts.
