Dynamic Gold shafts with Sensicore

21 posts in this topic

What is this? What does it do? I am looking at getting some 690.MB and was looking at putting the X100 shafts in. Should I get the DG X100 W/ Sensicore?

Shafts with Sensicore reduces the vibrations that are felt with every hit. Ever hit one of those shots that just left your hands stinging? Sensicore would reduce that.

Here are the details from true tempers website

"SensiCore is a patented technology designed to absorb the vibration of hitting a golf shot. A frequency tuned polymer core, located inside the shaft, eliminates up to 70% of unwanted vibration at impact
SensiCore radically improves feel and provides golfers the ability to practice and play longer because it decreases the harmful effects of "shock" on the hands, wrists, elbows, and shoulders.

Tour professionals have taken SensiCore to the winner's circle over 150 times. Ask them and they will tell you that SensiCore is the best feel in golf!"

I see you are playing the 690.MB wiht X100. How do you like this set. Do you use Sensicore?

Sensicore adds a little bit of weight to the shaft, but not much. It is essentially a shock absorber inside the shaft to reduce the harsh feel and vibration on off-center hits. I believe the insert is "tuned" to allow feedback, just not the "OW!" type of feedback.

I used to have a set of Pings with the Cushin insert in the shafts, which is very similar to Sensicore. I didn't think they made a big difference either way, but that was with a very forgiving set of irons. With the 690.MBs, you might encounter the stings more often and find Sensicore useful.

If at all possible, find a golf shop that has demos with Sensicore-equipped shafts so you can feel the difference yourself.

Im not saying it dont work but has anyone actually seen what sensicore consists of ? ...... its like a plastic drinking straw that runs the length of the inside of the shaft,with foam spiraled around it from the hosel to the butt.

They say the simple ideas are always the best................

Something you might want to check out. A product called pro soft inserts, wich can be found at www.myostrichgolf.com . They work great and i believe would be a less expensive option than sensicore. Get the dynamics and put these in inplace of purchasing the sensicores. I've done this and found the pro softs to be a better option.

I think they work. They're not a valid option for me because I want all the feel I can get, and I don't hit so many shots thin that I need to reduce the vibrations.

Never used them what-so-ever i dont think so i couldnt comment on wether they work or not.

On wether they are beneficial or not is a tough call and depends on your ethos on golf / feel / and confidence levels....

Do you want to hit a shot and purely see the result and get a "more solid" feeling to perhaps boost your confidence (with sensicore),OR hit the shot,"feel" how you have struck it and use your knowledge to try to adjust your next swing (without sensicore) ?

Personally if i hit a rank shot i'd rather feel it and know about it too,and not be "conned" into thinking i struck it better than i actualy had.

Yes, but you and I are decent golfers. We don't hit that many totally crappy shots. If you feel harsh vibrations 20 times in 18 holes, or maybe if you play in really cold weather, then Sensicore may make sense to you.

Fair point

If after playing reasonably serious golf for 16 years i had 20 shots a round with harsh vibration,i'd be thinking of suicide not sensicore

Doesnt a graphite shaft effectively do the same thing as a sensicore / ping cushin etc by filtering out some of those "bad vibes" ?

Agreed! Most better golfers want as much feedback as possible. Sensicore takes away the feedback on the golf shot!

It does, but at other expense as well - accuracy, the "feel" people have grown accustomed to in irons, etc.

I guess I don't understand the "feel" feedback thing. My eyes give me plenty of feedback.

I agree. A friend loaned me a set with tri-gold sensicore shafts and the feel a bit dull and board like. My reg. set has s300 dynamic gold, never got stung yet, and a very soft feel.

I have a set of irons gathering dust in the garage that have DG X100 with Sensicore. I don't like the X100. The Sensicore is fine. I put backer rod in my shafts to reduce vibration.

I want to mix gorilla glue or another polyurethane glue with water and pour a set number of grams down some shafts to see what the resulting stiffening foam does to flex and feel. Its worth it just for fun.

I would imagine the flexing of the shaft after a while would break the bond of the gorilla glue and you'd have a rattle. Not sure if gorilla glue rattles or not. :-) Let us know.

    • "5 Minutes Daily" Practice Challenge (February 2016)
      Spent quite a bit of time working the shoulder/hip turn drill and divided into four parts: 1. Shoulder turn with shaft across shoulders (feel: right shoulder blade moving to the left) 2. Same as #1 add hip rotation and weight shift keeping a steady head (feel: downswing feel left shoulder blade moving to the right) 3. Use club: pull left rust with the right on the backswing. Downswing and shift swing with left arm only... Keeping right elbow inward. (Feel: swing with left arm and hip). This one helps to get the feel of swinging across the body rather than out to left as much as I have been. 4. Put it together with a full swing with ball. Really cold here today, so divided practice between the garage and inside with the 1/2 swing. Also did weights, kettlebells and boxing for the aerobic exercise.
    • Use blades to learn how to play!
      Modern blades are relatively forgiving these days, but there are plenty of better player cavity backs that provide the level of feedback to know exactly where you struck it on the face. 1. Your irons wouldn't be to blame for something like that.
      2. I hate to be that guy but I don't see that actually happening unless you're getting major rollout/weather conditions/altitude. You should buy a laser rangefinder to avoid misjudging distances on the course.

      It's not your research. It's Mark Broadie's. Beyond that… GAME Golf is a partner of TST in 2016. We have an advisory board that addresses issues with them on a regular basis. I'm co-author of Lowest Score Wins, which has plenty of our own research. No, that's wrong. Again, if you have a 33 foot putt (expected: 2.0) and you hit it 33 feet past the hole and then make that one, the math is exactly the same as if you hit it to 3.3 inches and tap that one in: 33', 33': stroke 1: 1.0 strokes lost. stroke 2: 1.0 strokes gained. Net: 0.0 strokes gained.
      33', 3.3": stroke 1: 0 strokes gained, stroke 2: 0 strokes gained. Net: 0.0 strokes gained. Everything after the first putt is irrelevant. If you three-putt from 33', you lose 1.0 strokes regardless of the length of the second or third putts. If you two-putt, you break even. If you one-putt, you gain 1.0 strokes. Your third hole you were 27 feet away. Expected strokes: 1.95. If you two-putt, you lose 0.05 strokes. Lo and behold, you two-putted, and lost… 0.05 strokes. Same as if you hit it to two inches, or 33', and made the second putt.
    • Use blades to learn how to play!
      I thought I would bring back an old thread instead of making a new one so here's what I have to ask.   This year I have a lot of free time and I would like to spent at least 4 hours each day, or at least every other day, practicing my golf game so I can get to a 1 to +1 handicap. I've been playing since I was young but only 1 time every couple years, and right now I'm playing off of a handicap that was from all 5 scores I had last year and it's 12M. My last score of the season was a 79 and my highest was an 88. I want a club that's going to force me to learn when I strike the ball correctly as, before they were stolen ):, my Nike vapor speeds didn't provide me a lot of feedback.    Would blades be a horrible decision? I don't want to spend $1000 on clubs and I was fitted for standard length, lie and lofts that are around 42-44° for a 9 iron and decreasing/increasing by 4° each club in the bag. So, im looking at some used Nike VR pros, but I want to get a second opinion before I buy them. Would it be a bad idea to learn this way. Another problem that I have is the fact that I find it difficult to control distances because I can consistently hit my 3 iron 235 like I'm supposed to and sometimes I have a 3 iron that flies ridiculously hot off the face and can touch 290-300 yards. Obviously this is an issue if I'm going for a green that's 230 yards away.    Am I wrong for thinking this? are blades a bad idea?
