Like the title, I am interested in this shaft. I would like to know how it plays, and if possible, in the 910D3 or the Cally RAZR Hawk Tour.
Thanks!

High launch, quite tip soft.  A good shaft, but if you hit high already I'd advise against it (unless you tip it).

DI6 is mid-high launch and mid-low spin. DI7 is lower launch and spin than the 6. Most people's experience with the DI is with a shaft pull from the BST or ebay, or as a stock option from an OEM. In such cases, you can be about 90% certain most are not tipped propperly for their swing. I've found the Japanese made, high end Graphite Design product needs to be built to 1/4-1/2 a flex strong for best results. I'm playing a DI-7 right now with fantastic results. Nice mid launch with very low spin.

the 6 yes - the 7 no.  i hit the ball very high, tried the DI7 after talking to a few very knowledgeable fitters and a tour rep, and it gets the ball up maybe a degree higher than other shafts then IMMEDIATELY flattens out.  someone posted some information that the DI series in a Japanese test of all the 2010 shafts had the LOWEST spin and LOWEST overall total height.  i will have to search for it and post it. you are spot on with the 6 though.  HIGH launch / LOW spin!  high ball hitters stay away!

MID launch is perfect description.  Tipping with any shaft is so important.  That is why the average hobbyist (such as myself) can try very nice high end shafts and form an opinion that isn't factual.  you need a good fitter to properly help you in the process.  i can't say that i follow my advise all of the time, but i make sure to only form my opinion if something was PROFESSIONALLY dialed.  If i'm not mistaken - aren't you a fitter?  PM me sometime and lets chat about the razr hawk tour.  wanting some help making a decision...

thanks!

I have tried a DI-6x in my 910 D3, and I never play xstiff in anything.. it launched it way too high for me as well.. I sold it already.. might try a DI-7 or an Attas 7 next..

Ok, because I tried the madefor stock in the TEE XCG4.
It felt good, but I guess it is not the real thing.

Does the DI series spin the same amount as it's Alidila RIP counterpart (DI6 vs. RIP 60, DI7 vs. RIP 70)?  Reason being is I had great spin numbers with the RIP but launch was a tad low.  Will the DI keep spin around the same and launch a degree or two higher?  That's what it looks like according to the Titlest Shaft comparison chart:

Can anyone compare the DI7 to the Fubuki 73? Anyone hit both in the same head?

Similar. If tipped propperly for the player the RIP 60 will spin slightly less and the DI 7 will spin slightly less. Close though.

DI is lower launch, spin, and overall ball height.  Both smooth, gd kicks harder and has more of a mid kick than the fubuki...

Looking to put a DI 7 stiff in a 909D3 head (9.5). 96-98 SS, mid tempo. GD web site say's 0" tipping for driver. with my #'s should i still tip it maybe .5" or go straight in.

Thanks

Probably straight in.  I've played the Di6 untipped (mid tempo 105-109mph) and didn't have too much trouble, but if I were switching to it I'd probably tip it some.  

Besides, you can always pull and cut, you can't add tip back on.

Can anyone compare how the DI-7 plays in the Ping I15 vs 910D3?
