Ive been playing 910D3 since it was released... Tried the 910D2 and just couldnt keep the ball down.
Been testing the 913 range, had a quick fit up, ( got an hour booked next week ) but it seems the D2 is working for me a lot better.

Anyone else gone with this, OR have you gone from 910 D2 to 913 D3?

I went from 910 D2 to the 913 D3. I liked the D2 and hit it well, but  I hit my friends D3 and liked it better.

The 910 is a great driver. Some like the 913 better, some don't. Gotta find what works for you!

I actually still have the 909. Tried every model since ... but nothing has kicked it out of my bag. A simple black pear ... no gimmicks, but long, and incredibly workable.

i tested the 910's till i was blue in the face... i was fit for 910 D3 8.5 Aldila R.I.P 60X and hit has been the best driver i have ever owned. i have always been terrible with the driver.  my faults are terrible push/fades and huge yard-robbing slices  with a ton of backs spin (over 4000 rpm).  im not here to brag about how far i hit it or anything like that. but a great drive for me is 300-320 (pretty rare) . a good drive is 275-300 and most of my drives are in the 260 range with a lot of spin.... but when i get going bad and its fairly often.. its heavy push fades and slices that only go 230 ish... and well right.  i have hit houses, roads and everything else thats not part of the golf course..safe to say its the most inconsistant club in my bag.. no matter the brand.  im going for a fitting for the 913 D2 simply because i believe it will be more forgiving and i hope it will help a little with my slice because it is more draw biased than the D3.  the 910 D2 just ballooned and had way too much side and back spin for me.  Really hoping to get some spin down with this new 913 D2

Great driver as well. Just goes to show, if fit properly the last few years, it's tough to find something better...

My miss is also a push fade, Normal ballflight a little draw. Push fade maybe not quite as severe as how yours is but the 913 D2 Definitely felt like it it would eliminate that to some degree. I think you will like the new D2!

I was playing a 910D3 8.5 in C1 setting with a GD-DI 6 shaft since it came out.

I was going to automatically get a 913D3 8.5 head as it is the logical progression.

My fitter and I were trying different combinations, and the D2 still produced ideal launch conditions for me, so I figured why not.

The 913D2 shape is much better than the 910D2, with the top line looking more square edged like the D3, for a  lack of a better discriptor.

It is definitely more forgiving than either D3 head, both me and my fitter, who is a +1, who both used 910D3 in 8.5 and 9.5 have switched to the D2 8.5 head with our old GD DI 6 and Kiyoshi shafts.

The spin properties or so called draw bias of the heads are not nearly as drastic as people on here would lead you to believe. Hit the D2, you might be surprised. Does the D2 turn over a little easier than a cranked open RBZ Tour head? Of course, but a D3 head? very little difference. Similar LA and Spin numbers with my old 910D3 head, but maybe a couple extra mph in Ballspeed and definitely more forgiveness for the 913D2. With the D3, I used to tee it up with 2/3 of the ball above the top line and have a strong AOA, but now with the D2, I tee it much lower, go at the ball with a far less aggressive AOA but still get the same launch and spin properties. Granted is it all the club that has made that change? No, it was partly the indian, so to speak, but the shape and performance properties of the club is what made those changes possible.

With so many low spin shaft and variable configurations for shafts, I've been telling my friends to get the D2 head for its full 460 size, and then fit the shaft to adjust launch properties.

Best of luck hope you enjoy your fit, I'm loving my 913D2 setup. In the last two months I've been playing the RBZ Tour 9 degree head and absolutely love hitting bombs with it, but the 913D2, while it may be a little bit shorter in total yardage (admirable considering the shaft length difference with RBZ) is much more consistant.

Enjoy the hunt.

I used to play the 910D3 and was recently fitted for the 913D2. I couldn't get for the life of me feel comfortable with the larger head at address. So I went with the 913D3. Best decision I ever made as my numbers are incredible. The D2 is great dont get me wrong but for me it's all about feeling comfortable at address.

Great post!

IMO, the reason some don't transition well to the newer lines is they assume that the same combination that's optimal in their old driver will be optimal in the new. It may be a great starting point, but best to go into a fitting for the new version with an open mind.

I loved the D3 and hated the D2 in the 909 series. The D2 was miles better for me in the 910...

I could be wrong.
I have been before.
I will be again.

cool, thanks,.  i might add that i have been playing the 910 D3 8.5 in the D2 position...so loft at 7.75 and full closed   i dont think i will go for a 7.5 loft in the 913 as  thing the 8 degree range is good for when i do feel i want a little more loft.  hoping for more fairways. i dont give a damn if the 913 is long or  the same... hope its not shorter!!!  just want it straighter and lower.

So your hitting it high and right with 7.5 loft and fully closed? Sounds like your coming heavy from the inside to out. I couldnt stand looking had such a small amount of face...

FWIW... if you're a right-handed golfer, and hitting an 8.5 loft head set at D2, your effective/dynamic loft (as you correctly stated) is 7.75. However, the face angle will be 1.5 degrees OPEN; if you're a left-handed golfer, that same 8.5 head at D2, becomes 10 degrees (effective/dynamic) but 1.5 CLOSED.

It is impossible for your 8.5 degree head to be both 7.75 degrees and have a closed face-angle.
