Dynamic Gold shafts with Sensicore

21 posts in this topic

What is this? What does it do? I am looking at getting some 690.MB and was looking at putting the X100 shafts in. Should I get the DG X100 W/ Sensicore?

Shafts with Sensicore reduces the vibrations that are felt with every hit. Ever hit one of those shots that just left your hands stinging? Sensicore would reduce that.

Here are the details from true tempers website

"SensiCore is a patented technology designed to absorb the vibration of hitting a golf shot. A frequency tuned polymer core, located inside the shaft, eliminates up to 70% of unwanted vibration at impact
SensiCore radically improves feel and provides golfers the ability to practice and play longer because it decreases the harmful effects of "shock" on the hands, wrists, elbows, and shoulders.

Tour professionals have taken SensiCore to the winner's circle over 150 times. Ask them and they will tell you that SensiCore is the best feel in golf!"

I see you are playing the 690.MB wiht X100. How do you like this set. Do you use Sensicore?

Sensicore adds a little bit of weight to the shaft, but not much. It is essentially a shock absorber inside the shaft to reduce the harsh feel and vibration on off-center hits. I believe the insert is "tuned" to allow feedback, just not the "OW!" type of feedback.

I used to have a set of Pings with the Cushin insert in the shafts, which is very similar to Sensicore. I didn't think they made a big difference either way, but that was with a very forgiving set of irons. With the 690.MBs, you might encounter the stings more often and find Sensicore useful.

If at all possible, find a golf shop that has demos with Sensicore-equipped shafts so you can feel the difference yourself.

Im not saying it dont work but has anyone actually seen what sensicore consists of ? ...... its like a plastic drinking straw that runs the length of the inside of the shaft,with foam spiraled around it from the hosel to the butt.

They say the simple ideas are always the best................

Something you might want to check out. A product called pro soft inserts, wich can be found at www.myostrichgolf.com . They work great and i believe would be a less expensive option than sensicore. Get the dynamics and put these in inplace of purchasing the sensicores. I've done this and found the pro softs to be a better option.

I think they work. They're not a valid option for me because I want all the feel I can get, and I don't hit so many shots thin that I need to reduce the vibrations.

Never used them what-so-ever i dont think so i couldnt comment on wether they work or not.

On wether they are beneficial or not is a tough call and depends on your ethos on golf / feel / and confidence levels....

Do you want to hit a shot and purely see the result and get a "more solid" feeling to perhaps boost your confidence (with sensicore),OR hit the shot,"feel" how you have struck it and use your knowledge to try to adjust your next swing (without sensicore) ?

Personally if i hit a rank shot i'd rather feel it and know about it too,and not be "conned" into thinking i struck it better than i actualy had.

Yes, but you and I are decent golfers. We don't hit that many totally crappy shots. If you feel harsh vibrations 20 times in 18 holes, or maybe if you play in really cold weather, then Sensicore may make sense to you.

Fair point

If after playing reasonably serious golf for 16 years i had 20 shots a round with harsh vibration,i'd be thinking of suicide not sensicore

Doesnt a graphite shaft effectively do the same thing as a sensicore / ping cushin etc by filtering out some of those "bad vibes" ?

Agreed! Most better golfers want as much feedback as possible. Sensicore takes away the feedback on the golf shot!

It does, but at other expense as well - accuracy, the "feel" people have grown accustomed to in irons, etc.

I guess I don't understand the "feel" feedback thing. My eyes give me plenty of feedback.

I agree. A friend loaned me a set with tri-gold sensicore shafts and the feel a bit dull and board like. My reg. set has s300 dynamic gold, never got stung yet, and a very soft feel.

I have a set of irons gathering dust in the garage that have DG X100 with Sensicore. I don't like the X100. The Sensicore is fine. I put backer rod in my shafts to reduce vibration.

I want to mix gorilla glue or another polyurethane glue with water and pour a set number of grams down some shafts to see what the resulting stiffening foam does to flex and feel. Its worth it just for fun.

I would imagine the flexing of the shaft after a while would break the bond of the gorilla glue and you'd have a rattle. Not sure if gorilla glue rattles or not. :-) Let us know.

    • Darts does have the advantage of being played in many venues where you can get a pint at any time during the game, as opposed to golf, where you only get the reward when you're done.  Unless you're in the US, of course, where many courses have a roving bar-cart to help you enjoy your round.
    • Furyk getting tight under Ryder Cup pressure could well be true or at least partly true. That critique seems partly true of the U.S. squad in general, doesn't it? Bubba's record is comparably poor at 3-8-0. Considering his dominance and winning percentage in stroke play and beat the field average, Tiger's Ryder Cup record isn't too stellar either. I'm just saying that Furyk (& Tiger too) may not have been used as smartly by the Captains as say, Luke Donald given his relative strengths and weaknesses. Donald tended to be sat for fourball where Furyk played both formats about the same amount, and maybe not with the right complementary partners for the foursomes. When Donald's relative approach game and putting (& birdie/bogie ratio) ranking slipped in 2014 he wasn't picked for the Euro team, because it seems his relative potential contribution (producing birdies) in alternate shot / foursomes had diminished.   Furyk Donald   SG-Tee SG-Putt SG-Appr SG-ARG Bird/Bog Bird+ % Bog Avd SG-Tee SG-Putt SG-Appr SG-ARG Bird/Bog Bird+ % Bog Avd 2016 -0.294 0.195 0.458 0.285 121 165 69 -0.583 0.060 0.645 0.449 82 181 16 2015 0.064 -0.024 1.081 0.513 15 83 8 -0.793 0.289 0.573 0.514 121 171 46 2014 0.121 0.091 1.175 0.408 5 97 1 -0.493 0.517 0.315 0.351 93 108 93 2013 0.023 0.092 0.950 0.323 25 78 14 -0.459 0.528 0.583 0.628 45 42 58 2012 0.225 0.423 0.830 0.275 9 145 1 -0.188 0.818 0.582 0.430 13 66 7 2011 -0.017 -0.160 0.643 0.190 77 147 32 0.040 0.870 1.094 0.273 1 4 1 2010 0.150 0.402 0.641 0.367 21 76 21 -0.506 0.870 0.661 0.464 16 109 9 AVG 0.039 0.146 0.825 0.337 39 113 21 -0.426 0.565 0.636 0.444 53 97 33 10-'13 0.095 0.189 0.766 0.289 33 112 17 -0.278 0.772 0.730 0.449 19 55 19 Furyk's record is horrible in the better ball / fourball format. I think that may be due to his relative lack of distance where it's harder for him to contribute much and bogey avoidance (his strength) is less important than making birdies. I expect Furyk's often been set up in a fourball pairing like Kuchar and Watson in '14 where the relatively short, but good putter / short game guy (Kuchar) was expected to complement the long hitter (Watson). Watson and Kuchar made many birdies, but still got smoked by two superior ball-strikers with average putting due to the better ball / fourball format. Rose's excellent short game helped that team in the alternate shot/foursomes format where their ball-striking was maybe less of an overt advantage than in better ball.
    • Yeah. Their products have been really solid. The 5C was iffy, but then again, the price was dirt cheap (relatively speaking). I may or may not be working for a company that supplies parts for them now, so I hope they get more popular.
    • It's all part of the deal. Especially when you are golfers like us (note my HI). Look at it this way. A couple of weeks ago I traveled three hours to our TST outing in Norwalk, OH and proceeded to barf on my shoes for 18 holes solid. Had one of my best rounds last week. It happens. Get away from it for a bit, get over it and when you come back you'll do better.
    • This sounds really really dull.  The kind of dull I'd really like to get used to seeing n my own game.
