Whiteboard 63g X vs. Blueboard 63g X

14 posts in this topic

Just picked up a 909d3 with a blueboard 63g X...... Heard many good things about the whiteboard..... Anyone have opinions? Coming from the V2 76g S in my driver but I think the torque was a little too low. A slight push to the right was very common

How is your ball flight with the blueboard? If you're looking for a lower ball flight and lower spin, the whiteboard may be a better shaft. Hard to say since you asked a very open ended question. I game a whiteboard mainly because my launch and spin are to high with the blueboard. They're both great shafts, play the one that fits you better.

Haven't gotten the new one yet..... But going from the 907D2 to the 909D3 may be enough...... Had replaced a stock blueboard in my 907 with the
V2 to lower my ball flight and spin..... Leery about going back to the blueboard even tho the d3 is touted as low launch low spin..... The new one is also and X flex as opposed to the stock BB that was a S in the 907.....

I didnt know you could make an X at only 63 grams...That thing must be made out of mithril or something, lol.

Am I the only person who uses a 83g of the Whiteboard? Why am I so tempted to try a 63?

I have it narrowed down to a few replacement choices:

1. Diamana Ilima 60 X
2. Fujikura Motore F3 60 X
3. Matrix Ozik HD6 X
4. V2 66 X

Not really any way to hit these all in the same driver, basing it off of my last launch monitor session and what I feel I need in a shaft combined with the D3 head. V2 76 S was good but too low torque, also hit it fairly low with the 907 D2 head (don't mind that so much though) Swing speed 110ish. The 4.4 torque rating on that stock BB has got me worried.

I hit a 73. I wouldn't mind an 83 but most of those I come across are in X-flex. I like an S-flex tipped about 1/4" better.

I am picking up my whiteboard tomorrow to replace my Fubuki shaft as I get the best numbers with it. Went to a fitting with the Callaway van today and the White board with my FT-9 gave me a more boring ball flight and gave me consistent launch and low spin. Looking forward to hitting some bombs on the golf course.

If you hit a V2 too low, you're likely going to hit a WB way too low. How is your ball flight with the stock BB?

Haven't hit the stock BB yet in the D3, had it in the 907 before I changed it to the V2. I thought about that with the WB, but was thinking that going down to 64g and up to an X flex would offset that. Have compiled a new list of options, and looking for thoughts on the following:

Motore F3 70g
Rombax 6w or 7w
Fubuki Alpha 73g
Matrix Ozik Xcon 7
Diamana BB (Non Stock)

I'd definitely hit the stock setup before you change anything but based on that list I would say the Motore or the Xcon. Both a a little higher launching but still very low spin shafts. I would say the Fubuki Tour would be better than the Fubuki Alpha since the Alpha launch is closer to a WB. And if you liked your V2 in your old set up you ought to look at putting that in the 909D3, it's by far the most price effective solution. You don't want to put a $400 shaft in a head only for it to launch to low. Another cheap solution would be a ProLaunch Red, it launches similar to a WB and costs a fraction of one.

Good Luck.

    • Not only are you hitting the sweet spot, but a relaxed swing like that is probably more efficiently transferring your back/shoulder/arm power through relaxed hands into the clubhead. Swing a whip as hard as you can, and you just look like a fool.  Flip is casually and correctly and the tip goes fast enough to break the sound barrier. Now that you have had a taste at a smoother and easier swing, you can start to become more consistent with those movements and correctly add more speed in the future.  Frankly, with your posted index, I'm surprised this is new to you.  I look forward to hearing how your game improves now.
    • The lessons I've had generally follow the same pattern: 1) Diagnosis (could be set up, or swing) first 5-10 mins. 2) Experiment to see if I can feel the error (5 mins). 3) Experiment to feel the correction (often with exaggeration, drills etc). 4) Skills test to see if I can implement the changes (can I do it with a 4 iron, can I massively exaggerate the desired effect) The homework is basically these 4 things. When I feel I've fixed it, or feel like something else is wrong, or I can't fix it, then I'll go back for another lesson. Has helped me go from a 27 to sub-14.
    • So the question becomes why does a 75% swing hit the middle of the clubface more often? My guess would be that the movements are in control and you're not wasting energy forcing the club to act against a more neutral motion. I feel like when I go super hard (say 110% of my usual speed) I try and thrust everything (handle, hips, hands) forward and right rather than just swinging. Is this also the reason that flighted iron shots are preferred to full swings?
    • I agree with some of the other posters. Hitting the ball square is more important than just speed. When you get a player that can match top speed and center hits..well you pretty much have a professional...lol
    • How can one possibly improve without homework? My instructor last year gave me plenty of homework.  Sadly, my schedule caused me to need to have my few lessons over too short a period and to not do all the homework.  It was a great disservice to both my attempts to improve and my instructor's time. In all honesty, the actual instructions did not give me a whole lot of information that I didn't already know from all my reading and online research.  He merely said things in different ways and applied it differently.  This very vital assistance did very little for me at the time of the lesson, but the after-lesson drills and spending the next days/weeks/months considering new ways to look at the information I've had for years was a great help. An instructor who does not give the student homework (specifically tailored to that student's issues) is nothing more than a 20 page audiobook.  And I don't think anyone here is going to suggest that one can become a great golfer by just reading the same 20 pages over and over.
