I am very interested in applications and experiences regarding Graphite Design Tour AD DI vs. DJ vs. BB vs. Other when installed in a 3wood.  I included "Other" so different shafts might be noted if there have been really positive experiences.   I am particularly interested in hearing about set-ups for stronger swingers with the occasional tendency to hook, but all golfer types are welcome.  Any great experiences for a 3Wood?  Any particular tipping success with these shaft options?

Tried the ad di, dj and diamana kaili, i think the kaili fights the hook the most, AD DJ lands the ball the softest or flights it the highest and the ad di to me was ho hum, nothing real special. Kaili is a great 3 wood shaft.

Bumping this thread because I had similar questions.

I love the DI 7x in the driver and currently play the Axivcore green 85x and 95x in a strong 3 and 4 would, respectively (both SQ II tour)

I have two clubs that might get re-shafted, the first being a 15* SQ II tour issue with a stiff Fubuki (not a stiff flex guy, just what it came with) and the other being an Adams tour issue F11 ti that currently has a VTS Black 8x proto in it.  

I hadn't thought of the BB (maybe for the driver) like the OP, but have been waffling on whether to go DI or DJ, both 8x.  Since the axivcores I am accustomed to are pretty boardy and I fight a hook, I wondered if the DJ would not be for me??  I also turn over the VTS Black 8x a little more than I would like to.  I never really hook the DI in the driver, unless I make a really bad swing.

I guess my question is this:  Will the DJ be as accurate and fairly anti-left like the DI, but with a bit more spin/higher flight, or will it be too loose and spinny for someone who likes a boarder fairways shaft?  Truth be told, I don't really like boardy, I just like accurate, and I have enjoyed the DI thus far because it has an amazing combo of feel and accuracy.  I would like something equally consistent but great feeling for my fairway wood, I"m just not sure if that measn DI or DJ.

The DI 8x is a great 3 wood shaft. Has great feel and flight. I also have a Fujikura Rombax Pro95 in my other 3 wood and that is a great shaft as well.

KPH-

How does the Di compare to the Pro 95.  I also played the Pro 95 for years but not since I made the jump to X flex about 3 years ago.  I'd be very curious to hear a direct comparison between the two.
