I don’t know that anyone can give you a definitive answer. It depends so much on your swing now, how fast you swing, your shaft lean at impact, your rhythm and tempo determines how much and when the shaft loads and unloads, etc.

You can look up the weights, the spin profiles, the launch characteristics… and get a rough idea of the difference between the two.

DG will be a lower launching shaft in general and will be constant weight vs. the progressive weighting of the AMT Black. That being said, I would be very surprised if you see much difference in these shafts.

Sounds like you are switching heads also, so that will make it even more difficult to determine what differences the shafts are presenting as the heads will impart the largest changes.

Yep, I am definitely seeing a lower ball flight. Most of my shots with the forged clubs feel thin but they aren't losing much distance. 

Probably will take some time to get used to the new shafts.

This is exactly right. You will need some time (few hundred balls) to get used to the new shafts. One reason I don't love the modern fitting session. Five swings with 5 different shafts doesn't really tell you how you will hit each shaft. It only tells you how your body immediately reacts to a given shaft when coming from something different.

    • I’ve not really noticed anything,  I’ve played in the wet and I’ve hit with a wet face because I haven’t bothered to wipe it off.  However my pattern is “Jekyll and Hyde” so I tend to either hit it pretty straight or hit bad shots that are pretty bad.   So I doubt I would notice something that was saved by a few feet due to a wet/coated club face.  Usually trees do a better job for me to keep it in play.
    • When water gets on my driver face I hit knuckleballs... not my preferred shot shape.
    • Thing is… a lot of slower swinging players could probably use MORE spin.
    • There is someone at my club who has been noticed putting Vaseline or chap stick on his driver to reduce spin.   The person who told me said that they were told not to do it if money was on the line.   So I guess it’s a thing.  
    • Our Mens Golf Association has bylaws that talk about keeping things in the spirit of the game and polices certain behaviors and situations.  The person who runs it is a fierce competitor and when he talks match play strategy, he will say things about how he plays to put pressure on people to win and get into their head by trying to bury them or play aggressively at the start to make an opponent go in the defensive.   He doesn’t trash talk or say things to mess with people. As golfers, or people, there are going to be people who try and exploit anything they can get away with and it’s best to be prepared to deal with it and not let it bother you.  People who are jerks and push it too far will get reputations and in the end if they are excessive, it’ll rebound on them.
