Need some help deciding whether to stick with my stiff shaft or move up to a X-STIFF shaft. My driver swing speed is 108-110 mph. I can't seem to control the ball with my current shaft (Fujikura Motore 5.5, Weight:59, Torgue: 3.4, Kick point:Mid.)This is the stock shaft that came with the driver. It feels too soft. I had my swing looked at by the Club Pro but he really didn't anything negative to provide. Any driver shaft suggestions?? I am currently stationed overseas so quality golf equipment is limited. Please recommend websites that I could purchase driver shafts.

If you're swinging that fast you shouldn't be afraid of going to an X flex.  You could probably go to a stock made for Titleist Ahina X, (I think it's 73 grams and 3.0 torque).  It's a pretty stout shaft and it'll probably get your spin numbers down.  I have a similar swing speed and I play a Diamana Whiteboard stiff in a 8.5 910 D3.  At first I was a little apprehensive to go to such a stout shaft but it feels really good and works fine for me.  Good luck and from a fellow vet thanks for serving.

go with a heavyer shaft. get something in the 68g area or even look into the 70 gram area.

Phillip,

I have a swing speed of ~105-115 depending what I want to do with the ball. I was looking at the Fuji Motore shaft, but I decided to go with the Project X Black 6.0. This should fit in with your swing speed, and like other people on this forum have said it is a heavier shaft. If you still think it is too light, then the Project X Blue 6.0 has the same feeling, but I think it's 10 grams heavier...and cheaper too.

Hope this helps!

Can I order this shaft through Titleist? Like I said earlier quality golf equipment over here in Okinawa is limited.

Thanks for the help. I love this site! It has helped my game so much.

Where can I order shafts for for 910 D2? As I understand I can only order it through Titleist due to the Sure Fit system. Is this true?

Phillip are you a military person or working on a military base there. I know the u.s. spec. Titleist rep for japan.

PHILLIP A

I was wondering if Team Titleist is going to come out with alignment sticks in 2013?  They would be cool and be the want of everyone on the range especially the younger generation, and it may be a way to bring more people to the world of Team Titleist?  Let us all know!  The Range Rat

Phillip,

Lets us know how it works out.  I was having the same issue with a swing speed of 114.  I got fitted and changed to the fujikura motore speeder tour spec 6.2 in stiff.  It plays like a X and is a super nice, tour level shaft.  You'll see a lot of guys playing it on tour.

I've just had some back surgery and am going to be out of action for a few months. My plan is to get refitted for the 913 once I get back. I would be happy to give and ship it to  you shaft free of charge and send it to you as a thanks! the shaft is less than three months old. I have some marine mates who do a great job and I also lived in Japan for a number of years, so I know your issue when it comes to availability.  It has the surefit option so will bolt straight on...

Good luck either way and enjoy the nice weather in Okinawa. 

Adam!

My SS is 114, I use a RIP60 stiff in my 910D2, works great.  Shaft is very stout, hard to overpower.  Mid flight, lots of roll out.

Check out ebay. You'll be able to find something new or used depending on what you're looking to spend on a shaft.

PHILLIP A


Adam,

I really appreciate the kind gesture but I couldn't accept that shaft from you. I know that shaft cost you a pretty penny. Your thanks is enough for me and the rest of the troops. Keep supporting what we do to serve our country proud. Semper Fidelis!

Titleist Family,

My shafts came in yesterday and what a difference it made! I went with the Fujikura Motore F3 70 Stiff shaft (71gm). It is a great shaft. I want to send out a thanks to all my Titleist family for all the help and advice you provided me. Semper Fidelis!
