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.

My fitting with Jon Sinclair is set for the weekend of Oct 20th.  I'll provide details of the day and details of the fitting.  Also hoping Jon might have some ideas as to why I'm breaking these shafts.

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.

Yeah a refit could make a difference but it's not in the cards.

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.

My raijin was a similar swing weight in a 74 stiff so I assume that's why

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.
