If you are not getting any roll... Then I'm guessing your ball flight is high (lots of spin) and you're ball is just ballooning into the sky, and dropping out of the sky due to gravity and not rolling?  If your swing speed is truly 115mph... Let me ask you some questions...

1.) What loft is your D3 head?

2.) What setting do you have the 910 D3 at (A1 is neutral)?

3.) What shaft do you have?

Give us more data...  I really doubt you'll hit a 913 D3 further just by taking the club off the rack from the average retailer.  You need to be properly fit into the shaft to maximize distances.

With that being said, you will also want to consider your setup and swing path.

Watch this video...

Once you have the proper setup and path... Then watch this video and you can see where to hit the face of the driver to maximize distance.

I'm guessing that you have too much spin with your driver.  You should hit up.  Hit just above center - toe side hit which will help you hit a draw and maximize swing speed, maximizing ball speed and minimize spin.  This equates to more distance.

With the 913, you get more forgiveness and better stock shafts.

The early word is you better get fit; don't expect the 913 to flight the same as the 910 given the same loft and similar shaft.

Make sure the fitter knows what he is doing and takes his time.

By the way, Beach - thanks for the videos.

I tried this out at a local Golfsmith yesterday to see how it feels. I also compared it to the 910 that I also have. I tested the 913D2 9.5 degree Diamana 63g stiff shaft. I also compared it to the 910D2 with the respective stock Diamana Kai'li stiff shaft. The immediate notice to me was the weight of the club head, which felt really light - almost similar to the TM offerings. As for distance, the 910 I was hitting about 267 average with roll. The 913, I was averaging about 278 with roll.

Keep in mind, this was just a rough try out of the driver and didn't get real solid numbers (swing speed, launch angle, etc) to take home and compare. But overall, there is a little more forgiveness off the face of the 913. Off-center hits still felt more solid than the 910. I still want to do more testing in the future to see if it's worth trading in or selling the 910 and maybe even wait for the Nike Covert to come out and make a decision then. But I can say that I am impressed.

I would still go and try it out for yourself to get a good feel for your swing. I only spent about 15 minutes testing this club, which is very minimal.

I have hit them both, and i own the 910.. what i found is that they are pretty much the same club look and feel wise, but i did see a little added distance with the 913.

I think stock shafts make the difference. While the stock offerings in the 913 are very good, better players, or those who have played exotic shafts, will find them as not giving enough life to the driver. It would be gratifying to see exotic shafts offered at a more reasonable price by Titleist.

For me, a middle aged guy, the Bassara 50 showed a lot of kick and life in the 913. I tried the i'lima but it did not "wow" me. And that's just my swing at the moment. The bottom line is get fit, and if you have a favorite shaft on the sidelines, you might want to get it fit with a Titleist adaptor.

Hi Beachcomber

The loft is 9.5 degrees, aldila rip 63g stiff shaft, i have it set to C1!  this setting gives me the most penetrating ball flight and also cut out a lil bit of my draw. i swing on an upswing and an in to out swing path.

Im asking if both clubs were struck in the middle, will the 913 D3 give me more distance over the 910D3

I thought B1 was neutral.

I don't have the club, but from what I've read and watched online (Youtube video reviews), A1 was neutral.  Anyone have an online 'key' to the settings?  Looks like the OP is at C1 setting.

I really think it depends on the shaft... And how your spin and launch numbers are effected. From what I've read, the 913 D3 will be a little more forgiving than the 910 D3 on mishits.

According to Rory McIlroy, YES.

If you want to get more distance I would go with the 913 D3 in a 7.5* and I would also get it with the Diamana White 72 x-flex. 115 mph is way to much for a s-flex to handle.

The 913 with different shaft options will give different results. Tinker around with the 2 in comparison if possible but I own a 913 D3 but snow hit the ground before I could use it, but from my understanding and knowing that shafts can play a huge difference, I would play around a bit with the two on a titleist sure fit cart!

    • Thanks, makes perfect sense to me as it has been what I have worked on the past couple of months, and up until yesterday it wasn't something I had to really think about during the swing.  I'll hit the range sometime this week, hopefully it was just a bad day. And yes, been planning to get a My Swing Thread going, but was hoping to get back to where I felt my swing was late last year first. But that may not happen, so guess I'll try to get some swings recorded soon.
    • more offset if for the ones who can't close the face. for me i want less offset so i don't have to worry my ball hooking when i close the face. a lot of AM golfers aren't worry about trying to spin the ball with a GI irons, they are more into trying to smoke the ball as far as they can. and the most forgiveness they can get. but their are some guys who can spin the ball with a GI because they are using a softer ball which helps a lot and knows how to spin the ball. i think it's easier to hit a ball with a small face then a big face
    • I don't really feel that. I'm not working on anything that has to do with the elbow "dropping" at all. If anything I feel it driving outward (toward the ball) more as it comes down naturally. You should start a Member Swing thread of your own. Your elbow probably gets stuck around behind you too much. I'm exaggerating some things to help with my piece right now. It exits lower when I swing normally (even on a draw).
    • @iacas  two quick questions for you. On your transition into the downswing, what is your feel for when the club/hands/right arm/elbow drops?  I ask this because I had a horrific round yesterday, once I got to the top of my swing I was totally clueless, even went back to the range a few hours later, had no issues with wedges, but everything else stayed horrific.  I understand the lower body initiates the downswing, but for me it is more of a parallel move with my lower slide/rotation and my right elbow dropping.  I tried what I would call my normal swing and it just wasn't working, then I tried to only shift my lower body first, then tried the feeling of pulling my hands down and then out.  Regardless of what I tried it just didn't work, just lost all feelings when I got to the top.  Not looking for a magic pill here, just curious if you have a certain feel at this point in your swing. On your follow through, I notice your left arm stays high (inline with your shoulder line).  Mine is much lower when I finish my follow through, sometimes probably under my shoulder line. Is this just a difference in swings or is there a common fault that you see that may cause a lower follow through? Thanks!
