Driver Shaft?

6 posts in this topic

I currently have a taylormade r9 460, but i need something with a stiffer shaft. I know the r9 has a "for taylormade" shaft. Does anyone know if the supertri has a "for taylormade" shaft or the real thing? Or am i better of getting the tp with a better shaft? Any thoughts?

Thanks in advance.

The supertri shaft is also the "for taylormade shaft" and is whippier and spinnier than the 460 shaft. I had the stock supertri and the shaft was garbage, so I upgraded it to the TP shaft (Fubuki) and it is a world of difference. The shaft is stiffer, spins less, launches lower, is more controllable and feels much smoother. If you are going to get and R9 and swing over 100mph than getting the TP version is a must.

When you buy Taylormade driver, all you get is the stock shaft made by Taylormade even the TP version.    You can re-shaft your Driver at Custom Fitting Pro Shop with a Stiff shaft.  You will need a new Adaptor for your new shaft for an extra $20 (the red thing on the hosel).

Note that stock shaft on R9 is Fujikura Motore F1  Taylormade version.  You might wanna buy the Stiff flex for Fujikura Motore F1 shaft (the real thing).

I second that. The stock shaft in my R9 could be used to cane simba at the Big Top, its so whippy.

A stiffer shaft is needed even for an average speed golfer.

I know, it is horrible. I hit with the nike machspeed black with the stiff fubuki shaft today. I got much better numbers on the launch monitor than with my r9. The guy at dicks said it is the real fubuki shaft. Im deciding if i should get the nike or reshaft my r9.

    • This is the interesting question.  If he hadn't been drinking, there should be no reason to refuse the breathalyzer.   Surely he's not stupid enough to tell a boldfaced lie in his statement that will easily be refuted.
    • Number one, I had no idea there was a free rules of golf app. Do you have to be a member of the USGA? Because i'm Canadian, and Golf Canada doesn't give us free anything besides a crappy quarterly magazine. I didn't have a current rules book with me, as I was forced out of the game for almost 3 years due to a workplace injury. I encountered a situation that had never happened to me before and asked a simple question. 
    • Hmm, where have I heard that a DUI arrest is a medical issue before? Oh yeah, when his agent was arrested for DUI: http://www.golf.com/tour-and-news/tiger-woods-agent-mark-steinberg-arrested-drunken-driving-charges Color me skeptical. Not that it really matters. A DUI for an "unexpected reaction" to medication, which probably has a warning on it not to drive when taking it, is just as serious as a DUI for alcohol. If he's going through personal issues, I hope he sorts through them. But he shouldn't get a free pass because alcohol was not involved.
    • I figured it was meds, and while it still bothers me, i'm not as dissapointed as I was when I thought it was alcohol, just because I know how meds can affect you without even realizing it. I went through third degree burns to my left leg, and I did the same thing as him (though I wasn't caught or charged) for a few days thinking I was fine, before once becoming suddenly very tired at the wheel, I mean nodding off like a heroin addict. I had to pull into a parking lot and call some friends to come pick up me and my truck. I didn't drive again until I was off the meds. But it was a reaction I wasn't expecting. I had been tired throughout the ordeal after my surgeries, but I thought it was just my body telling me I needed rest. I had no experience with pain meds, or the anti-anxiety (Clonazepam or some such drug) meds they gave me after my workplace accident, and didn't know how they were affecting me.    I'm not defending Tiger, just like i'm not defending what I did. Had I been caught, I would have rightly been charged, just like Tiger.    And if you think driving at 3am post-surgery when you've slept most of the day and can't sleep at night is something out of the ordinary, I don't know what to tell you. I still go for a drive in the middle of the night when I can't sleep sometimes.  And in Tigers case, he is apparently also a known insomniac. 
    • Uhhhh…? You can have a different reaction weeks into a set drug regimen. Plenty of other factors can change. Dosage. Lack of sleep. Diet. The specific times you take things. I don't much care either way (he should not drive impaired - that puts others in danger) as it's off-course stuff, but I still like facts and dislike speculation.
