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...

    • Some background information before you vote... I run a weekly game on Saturdays and Sundays with anywhere from 8-12 guys. Handicaps in my group range anywhere from 1 to 16. Expected pace of play at my course is right at 4 hours. Anything more and its frowned upon. We do not get the earliest tee times of 8am, because the course does me a favor by allowing me to have standing tee times without having to call every week. We have 9:00-9:10-9:20 every weekend.  This morning we had 7 guys, so I sent off a 3some (me included) and the last 4 guys to follow. On the 3rd hole I noticed that there was a 2some in front of us on 4 tee, and one of the guys took 5 practice swings just to top his driver maybe 4 feet. It was still on the tee box. He reteed and pulled one about 60 yards left. No biggie, golf is hard no matter how good or bad you are.  The 2some was not very good, so they were having a hard time keeping  up with the 4some in front of them. I texted the assistant pro (close buddy) in the pro shop and he came out and asked the 2some to try and keep pace or let our 3some through. We waited on every shot on 4-5-6 and finally on 7 green we hurried to the 8th tee only for them to look back at us then drive off. The issue was they were waiting for the 4some to get on the green before they would tee off, and then come nowhere close to hitting it 200 yards. On the 9th tee I finally said, "hey guys, do you mind if we play through? We will get through that 4some no problem and you wont see us again" They said sorry, but the 4some is not allowing them to play faster and that they couldnt let us through. At that point I said, you're a 2some, and 2 hours for 9 holes is not on pace. You need to push the guys in front of you so they know to let people through.  At the turn the assistant pro let us through, and we played through the 4some on 11 without them missing a beat. Ended up playing in 2 hours and 55 mins, even with the hold up (all three of us shot sub 80 rounds). After the round I thank the assistant pro for allowing us to play through, and mentioned that 2 hours for a 2some was not on pace. He told me that they complained that I was pressuring them to push the group in front of them, and that he was a tennis member who they would like to join as a golf member. The assistant pro said he has been giving one of them lessons, and that 2 hours probably should be their pace. I replied with " I have no problem with anyone shooting 120 on a Sunday morning, golf is golf, but when there is a faster group behind its golf courtesy to let them through"  I dont really care what they think, and honestly if they can get around in less than 4 hours Id be glad to have them play in my weekly game. Was I wrong for pushing a group of not very good golfers?  
    • Fired up the smoker and plan to watch in about 35 minutes.  Can't wait to see this match go down.  My money is on Rory, but we shall see.........   @natureboy - How about that 133 YARD ;) wedge shot yesterday into the elevated green with the pin placement in the front.  Mortals wouldn't have a chance at that pin....
    • Not a smart bet IMO.  Just for the fact that Spieth plays so well at the Masters.  I would take that bet on all the major excluding the Masters.  No one in their right mind would bet against Spieth at the masters, 2nd, 1st and 2nd place finishes in his last 3 attempts.  Just saying.....  I believe he will win another Major, @ the Masters.  
    • Yes, some ranges with limited space use "restricted flight" balls that don't fly nearly as far as regular golf balls (60% sounds about right).
