Tour AD DJ 6s

9 posts in this topic

I'm buying a Tour AD DJ 6S on Wednesday for my ping g25 fairway. It has the stock TFC shaft in there now in a stiff flex. I saw the impact the oban kiyoshi purple had on my driver as far as high launch and low spin and it's been fantastic. The tour ad DJ seems to be the way to go for fairways to increase spin and launch which is what I want for my fairway. Looking to get some feedback from anyone who has tried this shaft out or is currently gaming it. Also, I'm currently between 98-103 swing speed on average so I want to see where I stand compared to the field using this shaft. Thanks!

Never hit that shaft in a fairway wood but I know how good the Graphite Design stuff is.

Is your TFC a "tour stiff"?

The TFC shaft is not the tour stiff, that's really what I was looking to get initially but surprisingly Golf Town doesn't carry the tour stiff on the floor. The stiff is playing more like a regular for me, quite whippy. I've heard the 6s plays to a true stiff so I'm looking forward to trying that out. Mind you the TFC shaft really is quite impressive for a stock product, I'd just like to increase my spin for my fairway wood.

The Ping TFC shafts are decent, but they really are much softer than their labeled flex. I had a TFC stiff in my G10 3-wood for a while and couldn't ever hit it (unless a 10 foot high roping hook counts as "hitting it") until I replaced it with the same shaft I have in my driver that works well for me. When I bought my hybrids I got a great deal, 2 G10's brand new for $70 total, but one came with a regular flex and one had a senior flex TFC shaft. I swung the senior flex one once on the range to test it and immediately decided I would re shaft it before trying it again. I was scared of the thing splintering when I swung since it was flopping around so much. That said, they are decent quality shafts. My grandpa normally uses a regular flex shaft and his stiff TFC works exceptionally well in his clubs.

You're spot on. I went in to my local golf town today just to hit the regular flex for fun and it honestly felt like ladies flex. The stiff plays to a stiff regular at best and that's being generous. Got my g25 reshafted today.. can't wait to hit it at the range.

I'm playing the AD DJ-7 in my driver.  I've had it for almost 2 yrs, and got it for basically the same reasons you stated...I tend to launch the ball low and wanted something that would throw it up in the air with some spin to keep it in the air.  I play my driver short (44 1/4") so I went with the 7 to keep the swingweight up.  It's a fantastic shaft.  It does what it's supposed to do and I like the way it feels.  I have experience with other high end premium shafts and this is as good as anything I've played.

Awesome, glad to hear. I'm picking mine up tomorrow, it's been quite the process getting this shaft put in a g25 fairway since the shaft is a .335 and the fairway is .350 so they've shimmed it. Hopefully it holds...

Cool!  Shimming is pretty common, and there are some good shims on the market, so I don't think you'll have any issues.  Let us know your thoughts on the shaft!

That's good to hear, I hit it today after picking it up. I can honestly say this shaft is doing EXACTLY what I wanted. I've successfully gained spin and a much higher flight. Super excited to put it in play on the course tomorrow morning. The shaft is playing to a true stiff flex as well. Great looks and performance so far on the simulator is looking awesome.  A steal of a deal for $120 :) Now to figure out what to do with my stock TFC shaft lol... might just use it as an alignment aid...

    • For those who don't show clubs in your sig line. I currently carry: 1-3-5 "woods" 2-SW (mid 90's loft angles, unlike stronger modern lofts) Putter I probably don't need the 5W, and I'd like to try a hybrid or two. Some day...  
    • Ok thanks. I feel like I am stuck right between reg and stiff. Hard to tell though as the last time I hit stiff flex in my irons my ball striking wasn't as good or as consistent. I play stiff flex in my driver, 3 wood and hybrids but that's mainly for consistency. I've always had a high ball flight since I started playing golf but lately it's become ridiculously high. Do you guys think moving over to stiff flex would help with lowering the ball flight.

      http://www.gamegolf.com/player/roamin/round/1613273 Beautiful (and hot!) Florida sunshine, four rounds of golf, and $20 buck on skins. Great weekend! Highlights were, first and foremost, the 39 on the front nine this morning (a personal best), and the amazing par, birdie, par finish to the day.
    • Four rounds this weekend, two on Saturday and two on Monday. Shot 89, 90, 84, 91. Today was skins day and luckily, my highlight round came this morning. The front nine was just awesome, shot 39 with six pars and three bogeys. Then got stupid on the 10th after the first bad drive of the day and hit a tree, twice (well, different trees ), and made triple. Three more pars and nothing worse than a single after that, to finish with an 84. Fifty cent skins, plus extra skins for birdies, and low score on front, back, and overall for each round. I was up by 20 skins on the 18th in the second round when we went double or nothing.   I hit my longest drive of the day, at 274 yards, with a perfect angle left to the par 5 green. Then hit a perfect 3W and ended up 6 feet off the front-left edge of the green. Thinned the pitch-shot a little and it rolled about ~15 feet passed the hole...two-putt for par. My buddy had hit a tree with his 3W (bad angle off the tee), and finished with a double. $20 bucks! Cha-ching! What a great weekend! 
    • Austin had a great swing but other than the "macro" moves I don't see many similarities to DJ. - Austin had a slightly weak or neutral grip, DJ uses a strong one
      - Austin raised his left heel on the backswing 
      - DJ has a much more flexed lead wrist on the backswing and downswing
      - Austin goes into right pelvic tilt and with more axis tilt on the downswing where DJ maintains left pelvic tilt longer
      - DJ is more rotational while Austin had more "leg drive".
