I bought this club which was a "returned" purchase.  It was discounted 25% with a full 90 day guarantee.  (Had nothing to lose so I tried it as the stock miyazaki shaft has a good rep.)  This is a keeper for me.  The shaft delivers no matter how i attack the ball.  Smooth or aggressive the shaft seems to kick through the ball with energy.  The clubhead is live with good feel and forgiveness.  Awesome driver !!!!!

I bought this club about 2 months ago.  Then broke the shaft by hitting it with my hybrid club while standing too close to my bag at the driving range...:russian_roulette:
A new Miyazaki shaft is $250!  That is almost what I paid for the whole driver brand new.  I don't have the money to drop on that.  It was a great club.  Not sure what to do now about reshafting it.
Any ideas?

I bought this club about a month or two ago. Love it so far. As said before the mizayaki shaft is awesome. On solid contact the ball absolutely rifles off the face.

I just did a trackman session with the 310 and my numbers were good.  My normal swing speed max is 105, with the 310 I went 114.

Hit the 290 also but the trackman wasn't working, felt great but I was making better center contact with the 310, for whatever reason.


I'm still auditioning drivers but the Clevelands are solidly in the mix; I just cannot believe how easily they tear through the contact area

I have now had this in play for over a month. Great head/shaft combo for me.  The shaft just works and feels very solid - I get great trajectory and spin for my mid-90's ss.  The head feels solid, looks great and is forgiving enough.  I am longer with this club than ever, but that may be more because my swing is improving.  I "field tested" a lot of drivers and feel very good about this club.

Found a good deal on one of these about a month ago and I'm loving it so far.  These are easy to find used at a great price right now and if you're on a budget like myself it's win win!

Was it the 290 you tried and which shaft was it  stiff / regular etc?

I just acquired one of these in 12* with a WB shaft and its been the best driver, for me, in a while. Coming from a 9* R11 w/ a BB that I hit well, the SL290 is consistently longer and straighter for me.

As it happens, I broke my 2011 TM Burner Superfast 10.5 driver. The longer shaft exposes it when you throw the bag into the car, "SNAP". Lesson learned. Shaft replacement not viable so I bought the 2012 TM Burner Superfast. Not the same club, so I began using my 2011TM Superfast 3 Wood instead. Of course I now hit more fairways and my distance is only slightly less than the driver. So if 15 degree works, how about 12 degrees. Bought the SL290 Regular shaft on eBay for $60.00. 12 degrees assures accuracy without sacrificing distance. International Shaft measures at 8-7-2-2 which is a stiff butt section with a very flexible mid to tip. Would've never bought that spec if I knew, but after one round of use it looks like a winner. Won't be playing until Spring due to surgery, but looking forward to March!
