Titleist 910 shaft suggestion

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 

Dear all,

 

I am looking to buy a Titleist 910 D3 and am looking for recommendations re. shaft choice and would really appreciate any recommendations. I am 24, 6ft 1 play off 7 and have a smooth swing with smooth transition @ 105mph on average with a driver. I currently hit Ping i15 driver/woods with a Axivcore 69 Red in them. Irons I play the old Callaway X Forged with PX Flighted 5.5s which work well for me (I like the heavier weight of them) and find them easy to shape. 8 iron is a staple 155 yards with a good flight shape.

 

The i15 is OK but having battled with it for a while its getting the chop......I'm struggling for distance (average about 275-280 yards) with it I believe because its launching slightly too high with too much spin even though the shaft does 'feel' nice. Its not ballooning but its not exactly penetrating.....into a wind I am definitely struggling and tend to tee the ball lower than what is probably ideal to compensate.

 

So the options I am looking at -

  • Project X Tour Issue X7D3 5.5 - Not sure if this will be stiff enough for me but considering it due to consistency with the irons.
  • Project X Tour Issue X7C3 6.0 - Perhaps better?
  • Project X Tour Issue X8C4 6.0 - I like heavier clubs but perhaps this is too heavy/difficult to load for me?
  • Fujikura Motore F1 65
  • Graffaloy Pro Launch Red

 

Any advice on a choice between these or even any other suggestions would be really appreciated. Many thanks in advance for any info!!

I have an Aldila RIP stiff shaft on my D2 and love it.

I like the px x7c3 6.0 in that club. My SS is @ 105 and it gave me the best results.

+1 on the 7C3. Lower flight and great roll out.

I was surprised when I was fitted for that shaft. I would have guessed it would be too stiff for my 100-103 SS but the lower spin, slightly lower launch, and better overall numbers made it the shaft for me. I don't recall which shafts were slightly longer, but distribution was much better with the PX. Great combo for me.

 

I play PX 5.0 in my irons so I'm not a stiff shaft guy.

The Mitsubishi ahina that Titleist carries as a stock option is their low-launch, low-spin shaft.  At 72-73 grams, it's not terribly heavy either.  Personally I think it is a great shaft, regardless of what the "stock is crap" crowd says.

 

You have a smooth transition, but relatively high clubhead speed, and looking for lower launch/spin.  So you're probably looking for something in the mid-weight category (70-80 grams), with a higher flex point and lower torque.  I'd check out the ahina 73 in Stiff and X-stiff just for a comparison.  I think the Stiff would work for you based on your speed, but it doesn't hurt to try a few different models, and a few different shafts with the same specs just to see if they perform slightly differently.

One of the things I liked about testing the 910 was how simple it is to test different shafts. Check out everything you think has a chance.

And for informational purposes, the 913 will have several aftermarket, not "made for Titleist" shafts. Although the "Made For" Shafts are very good - I mean Ben Crane won a tournament last year with the "Made for" liteweight Bassara Shaft in his Titleist driver.

 

Hey ... they're Tour Proven.

I highly recommend the UST proforce V2. I recently bought a D3, F and H all with stiff V2s and love them. I demo'd tons of shafts extensively before deciding.
