913D2 V/s 913D3

Besides the D3 being smaller,  what are the other specific differences between the D# and The D2??

randy,

the 913 series drivers are similar in launch angle.  the d2, i believe, though has a slight draw bias vs the d3.  the d3 is a little more workable off the tee.  hope this helps.

randy,

both 913 drivers have similar launch characteristics.  the d2 has a slight draw bias to it, though.

All Titleist drivers are 0.5 degrees open at the neutral setting.  That can be adjusted. 

Under size matters, the sweet spot and forgiveness are better with the larger faced D2. The clubs have a similar profile for typical flight.

The center of gravity is further forward with the D3, and it is easier to shape shots.  So it is a better players club with an ability to work the ball in both directions and also if the contact point is on-center.

I switched to s D2 12.5 deg loft and switched shafts from a Diamana kai'li S-flex to an Diamana iLima A flex. The yardage gain off the computer was remarkable. WITH MY d2 and iLima my Ball prov1x is launching between 17-23 Degrees on a beautiful flight trajectory that seems to flatten and go out of sight before it falls off.

AC Rix Rox, I also have the 913D2 10.5* driver w/'Ilima 61"A" flex shaft. Is you driver head a 10.5* or 12* standard? Since the settings are set to .75* increments I'm wandering what setting your using, and on what head standard loft you are using. Might try it myself.

Wow, you went from a stiff shaft to an "A" flex.  That's quite a change in my opinion.  How has the change affected your dispersion and your distance?  Why did you skip the regular shaft flex?

My PGA Pro @ DSG urged me to try the A flex in the lightest shaft I could find (cheap). Long story short.

Problem is: Now I hit the ball so dag nab far, it goes out of sight. I had to buy $500 worth of eye exams and new glasses to find my balls. Whew! Glasses were cheap compared to all the lost V1x's!

Hi Norris,

My D2 is 12* Standard at factory default setting: A1. I loved my D3 with kai Li S flex but my D2 with iLima 61g mid hi flex A out performs it by a wide margin. yardage increase is off the charts. I hit balls so far I had to go get new glasses to track their flight and find them. My Pro cannot believe the difference. It's performance has been so consistant, the D2 reigns supreme in my bag and has earned a Daphne tiger head cover too.

It's funny, nobody ever asked to see my D3 after I teed off. Now when I tee off with my D2 almost everyone I know wants to know what I am hitting. I don't want to tell them because I am scared they will go get one and use it against me. Sorta was my secret weapon so to speak.

Dag nabit, the cats outta the bag now!

Hi AC,  Do you know what your swing speed and ball speed are?

Thanks for the info AC RixRox. I also have a 910D2 12* w/bassara "A" flex shaft in it. My 913D2 is a 10.5*, but for some reason it just doesn't feel right to me, and (like you) I hit my 910 D2 12* better, so I'm thinking about taking the Bassara shaft out of the 910D2 12*, and replacing it with my 'iIlima 61 shaft "A" flex shaft. If winter ever ends, I'll try it out and see how it works out.

the d2 has a little wider face than the d3 but the d3 is a little bit taller. I am a 15 handicap and I prefer the d3 over the d2. you need to demo both heads with every shaft option available. that will be the only way you can tell which is best for you.

Based on your ball striking and launch profile, your PGA Pro can cut to the chase & point you to the correct shaft weight and flex for your profile. That can save you a bunch of time and money. Also, there is so much cool equipment out there to choose from you have to get profiled to quickly find the "good stuff" for you to try.
My Pro suggested I try both R and A flex of the lightest shafts I could find. My drive yardage went from 190-225 to way + out of sight. One main point here is the weight of the shaft is most critical. The flex and kick point will help determine your launch angle (should be averaging 17-21 degrees)which will further add to your distance. To further prove my point, the World's Long Drive Champion, Tim Burke, hits the ball over 400 yards. 427 yards to be exact. how did he do it? Well, Jason Zuback went to Lance Reader of Krank Golf, said "he thought Tim's 86 gram shaft was too heavy". Lance said "try a 55 gram shaft"(senior, ladies, active). Pretty light aye? source: Golf Digest Feb 2014, pg 96 The rest is golf ball history. Yup, the cat's really outta the bag now! The weight of the shaft is extremely connected to yardage IMHO. The flex and the kick points can be sorted out as you tweak it in. Remember this and I will say I told ya so, distance, without control is an expensive waste of lost golf balls.

I think you have a good plan. Errata: I miss spoke My D2 is 12* factory STD A1 hosel setting.
