Fellow GolfWRX members,

The other day I happend to demo a Taylor Made MC w/Dynamic Gold XP shaft.  I have been looking for information about this shaft but I cannot seem to find anything useful.  I did happen to find dynalite gold xp, are these the same shafts?? Also when I went to the TM site, the MC were not offered with this shaft, so I am a little confused.  I am looking forward to seeing what the fellow members say about this.  Thanks!

Dynamic Gold XP is a different shaft from the Dynalite Gold XP.  Higher ball flight than original DG, not as high as Dynalite XP.

I also have a Taylormade fitting cart with the Dynamic Gold XP shaft.  I don't understand why there isn't any information on this shaft anywhere.

Just a guess that the Dynamic Gold XP is similar to the discontinued Dynamic Gold Lite, or the Dynamic Gold High Launch.  True Temper is historically slow to update their website with their new shafts.  Until now, hadn't heard that there was a Dynamic Gold XP.

The shaft isn't available to the public yet, only TM, thus not putting it up on the company website. It will be made available to everyone late in 2011. Until then specs are:

R300 111g
S300 116g
X100 121g

These are designed to fall in between DG and DG SL in terms of weight and produce a mid-low ball flight.

This shaft is a stock option in many Mizuno irons.  I have the DGXP S300 in my MP-52s.  Having played both the DG, in MP-57s, and the Dynalite in MX-900s, I can tell you that this shaft is lighter than the DG  and it has a lower kickpoint (higher launch) and it plays less stiff than either the DG or Dynalight.  I wouldn't recommend it for 1) a fast SS or 2) a quick tempo player because I think that you could see a ballooning problem.  It feels to me like a True Temper response to Nippon 950 shafts and I think that it was originally designed for Mizuno.

I don't think the DGXP that came stock in the MX-300 is the same shaft as the DGXP that comes stock in the TP CB's.  The DGXP S300 in the MX-300 weighs 117 grams, whereas the DGXP in the TM TPCB weighs in at 110 grams.  The DGXP in the TPCB felt noticeably lighter to me than the ones in the MX-300.  My guess is that the XP is a 'made for' shaft that could vary depending on which manufacturer it's made for, and may not appear on TT's website at all.

Mizuno currently uses the Dynalite Gold XP whereas TaylorMade is using the Dynamic Gold XP. Two completely different shafts from a launch perspective. Dynalite Gold XP was a Mizuno only shaft for 2 years before it was added to our catalog and Dynamic Gold XP will be available late 2011, officially in our catalog for 2012. They aren't "made for" shafts, XP stands for Extra Performance.

Thanks TrueTemper.  When you say that the DGXP S300 and the Dynalite Gold XP S300 are completely different from a launch perspective, could you comment on how they are different?  I am looking at both the TM MC and the MP-53 and hit the MC in the DGXP this weekend at my club.  Thanks for clarifying.

Had a Mizuno Swing DNA fitting last week, and was fitted for this very shaft. I distinctly remember looking at the label and seeing 'Dynamic Gold' XP. Reading this, it seems this is not possible, or is this due to the fact that I had a fitting in Europe (Netherlands to be exact)?

As TrueTemper said earlier, the Dynamic Gold XP has a mid-low launch and is designed to fit in between the Dynamic Gold and Dynamic Gold SL in terms of weight. Whereas the Dynalite Gold XP is designed to be a high launch shaft with a more responsive tip section to help low ball hitters.

The Dynalite Gold XP label looks really similar, since it is only an option from TM right now I would be very surprised if one got into a mizuno fitting system. But it might have been released in Europe already, I doubt it though.

I went to a Mizuno fitting 2 weeks ago here in Austria, Europe, and also got fitted for the DYNAMIC Gold XP. Looks like Mizuno.eu uses this shaft already.

Michi,  The only one Mizuno Europe has on their site is DYNALITE XP.  But who knows, maybe the retailers are ahead of the website. . .

I've run into several Mizzy reps that use "Dynalite Gold XP" and "Dynamic Gold XP" interchangeably when describing the Dynalite shaft.  I don't think it was ignorance on their part, more a product of fitting a customer who is familiar with the Dynamic Gold line but has never heard of the Dynalite line.  Who knows how much confusion stuff like that causes as it ripples outwards.  Also the shaft bands are identical except for a couple of letters.

FWIW, I saw a chart somewhere and it had Dynamic Gold XP listed as mid-launch.  I've hit them into a net and I thought the tip was firmer.

But at least, the shaft label I looked at said "Dynamic Gold XP" :)

I know this is super old but I am looking for more information on dynamic gold xp.  

True Temper seems to say it is a low-mid trajectory and a bit lighter than dyanmic gold. Sounds like a lighter dg.  Maybe like a px shaft.

Others feel it is more of a mid trajectory shaft.

Ive always played dg s300 but im looking to get the tm tour preferred cb and they have the dg xp s300.  

Are dg and dg xp really similar or no?

Thanks

I have a set of DG XP pulls installed in some Wishon 752 heads.  Haven't hit them yet (bad knee) but they feel true to flex if that matters to you.  As for who to believe, my money is on True Temper.  My research on this subject supports the claim that they launch slightly higher than the regular DG shafts, but medium-low overall.  They are noticeably lighter than DG, that I know for a fact.

It's a "made for" Taylormade shaft by True Temper just like the TX-105 for Wilson or the Aldila NVX for Cobra. It's basically OEM

Why do ppl post so much crap without any research.

Go to DG site and read that info before putting your "own" illinformed views here.
