Titleist 910 D3 + Grafalloy Blue

3 posts in this topic


so i'm getting really interested in just making a driver myself.  i currently bag a 2009 nike sq dymo stiff flex 9.5.  here is basically what i experience with that stick:

-105-110mph average swing speed

-3800rpm backspin

-16 degree launch angle

-250-260y carry, 5-10y roll

my biggest drawback is spin.  i've read a lot about shafts and i think the grafalloy blue stiff would be a great spin reducer.  i think i'd like to stick with a 9.5 head even though my swing speed is borderline 8.5, and shaft is borderline X stiff for that matter too.

i've hit the 910 d3 on launch monitors several times, and i always hit is consistently and pretty long.  i put a lot of spin on it though, but i think i can attribute much of that to the shaft.

at any rate i realize this may be a fail miserably, but i'm willing to do it for fun since it's not terribly expensive, knowing i can probably get a pretty good price out of on ebay if i must.  any tips for this build, like shaft length perhaps?  also curious if you think my specs above would benefit from a build like this.

Are you talking about the ProLanch blue? If so i have some experiance. I actually have very similar numbers to you. The blue to me felt very wippy like my swing was way ahead of the club. when i got fit for my new driver i hit that, and all the diamana shafts with some project x shafts. I really liked the mid launching kaili shaft with my d2 i can hit pretty straight drives with it and a really nice penitrating flight . let me know what you think

i meant the original blue.  the prolaunch blue is actually the exact opposite of the original blue.  in fact the prolaunch red replaced the original blue, and that's the shaft i ended up with.  i also paired it with an adams fast 12 ls, and wow, what an excellent decision.

      No shottracker is more then just a website issue offcourse. To keep the scores updated they are always pretty good actually. However I just sent them a tweet a few days ago since it seems like they have errors since this last week with a disappearing scoreboard. That's pretty bad.

      Welcome to the site. If you had hit that first putt in the video I would have said that you had a chance, however since you missed it I have a hard time giving you the thumbs up..  Check back though when your HC is at a +3 / +4 and another video of you hitting that same putt and I will reconsider! Good Luck!

      Well, after reading this thread, I'm going to try it.    Figure my best opportunity would be a nice fluffy lie in the first cut, not off a tight fairway lie ... I like pulling off unusual shots, so why not choke up a little and give it a go ...

      It could affect handicap if it pushes one of your ten best out of the last twenty but only by whatever the difference is in the next lowest score that replaces it. But if your handicap is legitimate that score is probably close as your 11th best. The movement would be minimal.

      Agreed. I searched this way on the old site and it usually worked well. Here, the My Swing thread you want could be many pages down the results.  I suggested an enhancement on the other site features thread to include a link in the profile to their My Swing thread- like the Game Golf link will be there. Definitely useful for me as I enjoy browsing swing threads when I see comments in other areas.
