Tour AD DJ 6s

9 posts in this topic

I'm buying a Tour AD DJ 6S on Wednesday for my ping g25 fairway. It has the stock TFC shaft in there now in a stiff flex. I saw the impact the oban kiyoshi purple had on my driver as far as high launch and low spin and it's been fantastic. The tour ad DJ seems to be the way to go for fairways to increase spin and launch which is what I want for my fairway. Looking to get some feedback from anyone who has tried this shaft out or is currently gaming it. Also, I'm currently between 98-103 swing speed on average so I want to see where I stand compared to the field using this shaft. Thanks!

Never hit that shaft in a fairway wood but I know how good the Graphite Design stuff is.

Is your TFC a "tour stiff"?

The TFC shaft is not the tour stiff, that's really what I was looking to get initially but surprisingly Golf Town doesn't carry the tour stiff on the floor. The stiff is playing more like a regular for me, quite whippy. I've heard the 6s plays to a true stiff so I'm looking forward to trying that out. Mind you the TFC shaft really is quite impressive for a stock product, I'd just like to increase my spin for my fairway wood.

The Ping TFC shafts are decent, but they really are much softer than their labeled flex. I had a TFC stiff in my G10 3-wood for a while and couldn't ever hit it (unless a 10 foot high roping hook counts as "hitting it") until I replaced it with the same shaft I have in my driver that works well for me. When I bought my hybrids I got a great deal, 2 G10's brand new for $70 total, but one came with a regular flex and one had a senior flex TFC shaft. I swung the senior flex one once on the range to test it and immediately decided I would re shaft it before trying it again. I was scared of the thing splintering when I swung since it was flopping around so much. That said, they are decent quality shafts. My grandpa normally uses a regular flex shaft and his stiff TFC works exceptionally well in his clubs.

You're spot on. I went in to my local golf town today just to hit the regular flex for fun and it honestly felt like ladies flex. The stiff plays to a stiff regular at best and that's being generous. Got my g25 reshafted today.. can't wait to hit it at the range.

I'm playing the AD DJ-7 in my driver.  I've had it for almost 2 yrs, and got it for basically the same reasons you stated...I tend to launch the ball low and wanted something that would throw it up in the air with some spin to keep it in the air.  I play my driver short (44 1/4") so I went with the 7 to keep the swingweight up.  It's a fantastic shaft.  It does what it's supposed to do and I like the way it feels.  I have experience with other high end premium shafts and this is as good as anything I've played.

Awesome, glad to hear. I'm picking mine up tomorrow, it's been quite the process getting this shaft put in a g25 fairway since the shaft is a .335 and the fairway is .350 so they've shimmed it. Hopefully it holds...

Cool!  Shimming is pretty common, and there are some good shims on the market, so I don't think you'll have any issues.  Let us know your thoughts on the shaft!

That's good to hear, I hit it today after picking it up. I can honestly say this shaft is doing EXACTLY what I wanted. I've successfully gained spin and a much higher flight. Super excited to put it in play on the course tomorrow morning. The shaft is playing to a true stiff flex as well. Great looks and performance so far on the simulator is looking awesome.  A steal of a deal for $120 :) Now to figure out what to do with my stock TFC shaft lol... might just use it as an alignment aid...

    • 1 Iron Golf Clubs
      So...finally broke 90 the other day....would have been better but for cored and sanded greens. Never struck the ball so well. Have been trialing the "Bobby Clampett" Impact Zone training, and focusing on a point forward of the ball...working a treat so far and my irons are way more solid. Time will tell whether it is a flash in the pan or a good move, but the range session are very encouraging. Played since xmas at all?
    • Donald Trump for president?
      Notice this comment ;)  Yea but he's been doing that since he's been in office. At least he hasn't wavered away from his agenda for how ever long he's been in office. He's not going to pass it. He's going to try.  Trump doesn't have an agenda except to his own ego. He doesn't care about America. He doesn't care about the American people. He's uses to screwing as many people over as possible. Heck, why not add Washington to the list.  For me I think Trump just sat back and thought, "you know what I can win the presidency." Then he's going about doing it. It's all about vanity nothing else.   
    • How Do You Decide Where to Play Golf
      This is a more difficult question for me to answer than it once was, so I selected "Other".   If I play locally, then I only have a couple of choices.  But this year I rejoined the Men's Club at my old home course, so that has now become my current home course even though it's a 2½ hour drive (about 150 miles).  I also play several other courses just as I feel like it, no one course by price because I can get varying deals at 30 or 40 Colorado courses with my Avid Golfer Passport.   A lot depends on how far I feel like driving, it may depend on when my brother drives down from Idaho to play for a few days, and it just depends on what I feel like.
    • Donald Trump for president?
      Isn't Bernie doing the same thing?  He's leading a witch hunt against big business and the wealthy.  Do you really believe he's going to pass a 90% income tax on the wealthy, outlaw guns, provide better free healthcare, increase the minimum wage to $15+ country wide and provide free college to everyone? They are both snake oil sales people appealing to the lowest common denominators of their parties.  Bernie may be more sincere about his beliefs, but that could just mean he's crazier too.
    • Jack or Tiger: Who's the Greatest Golfer?
      But that stat goes directly to Tiger's lack of longevity (to this point in time).  If he hadn't had the issues that he's had, he wouldn't have missed all of those recent starts.  I don't see how you can diss Jack for being competitive over a longer period, and then still making many starts (which attracted more money to the events just by his presence) after his competitive career was past.  I don't know what the numbers work out to age for age to the point when Tiger was no longer starting in Majors, but that has to be a more telling number.
