Titleist 910 shaft suggestion

Recommended Posts

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

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.

    • When I am feverish and have the flu or flu like symptoms my concentration level and patience goes as close to zero as possible.  However, a head cold with no muscle aches and I can make it through.  About 20 years back I hurt my right knee over swinging on the range (turned out to be a torn meniscus) but I was determined to play.  I could put very little weight on my right side and my follow through had a step forward like Gary Player.  I played an excellent round (for me) and although I did not crush the ball I stayed in the fairway on almost every shot.  Needless to say I played no golf for the next 8 weeks to let the tear heal. Great round by the way!
    • So just wondering......do ALL sets of tees have slope and Course ratings? Or would you still keep that to a select few tees?
    • Being a member somewhere?  I'd hate that, variety is what makes this game so much more satisfying.  That said, if I have the chance to just get in a quick weekday round, or am stuck at home and suddenly feel like I want to play, I tend to go to one of 5 courses between 20 and 30 minutes away. I've decided on and driven on the same day even as much as 4 hours there and 4 hours back just to get a round in somewhere I'm interested in.
    • There only one course (Cascades, a full-length 9 hole course that is part of Crystal Springs) in my area that has "green" tees which are for juniors, novices, or people that just cannot drive the ball more than 160-170. The LongLeaf system sounds great and I believe it could be done with a minimum of investment but I do not see it happening with the exception of resort courses (which is where the green tees are in my region).  Why?  My guess is that course operators look at it as more on-going maintenance in addition to an initial investment.  I believe it would be worth it by bringing out more golfers while keeping up with the pace of play. 
    • Congrats on a great round, especially when suffering with the flu. I am on day 6 with the flu (diagnosed), and now know that death is probably not a bad thing.  I put down a 40' X 80' yard full of sod by myself. I was spent. Putting it down was not too bad, but I had to carry each piece from the font yard. I was maybe 35 at the time.  I had just sat down to admire my work with my favorite beverage in hand. My phone rang, and it was a good friend calling saying they needed a short stop for their men's soft ball team. I tried every excuse I could muster to not go. His friendship finaly got me to the field, which is when I found it was double header.  Long story short, l played as perfect a two games as one could ask for. No errors. Turned several double plays. Went 10 for 10 batting, with  4 of those going over the LF fence.  Spent the next couple of days in major muscle pain.
