    Well tomorrow is a big day. Going to be 60* + so I’ll be out on the course. I have my diamana DF and atx green ready to go and I just got a dozen of the new srixon xv and Bstone Tour B X. The reason it’s a big day is because I’m going to make a decision between those 2 driver shafts.



    This really only means that the loser will be sold to help fund a new 130 rogue white to try. Seeing as though I’m between jobs currently and I have a golf trip in a couple of weeks, I can’t justify the purchase of a new rogue white. But that doesn’t mean I can’t unload of items to fund it, right?




    That's the spirit! Keep churning old inventory to fund the new!



    Interested in your thoughts of the ATX vs the DF. Although, with 1.75" of tipping, we are probably living in completely different playing conditions!

    Which of the two offered the most "feel"? How similar do they seem to be in ball flight? From what I've read on each, I would imagine the DF felt stiffer? I'm looking for Pro Orange like performance with a bit more action in the feel department. Trying to gather info from any source I can at the moment.

    Launch wise they are similar for me. The green feels a little firmer with less feeling load and kick. The DF feels awesome, traditional whiteboard profile but with a little firmer handle. DF will spin more of course but if paired with a lower spinning head it’s an amazing combo.

    Last swing of the day with my m3/DF 70tx. The rogue white is en route so we will see what happens.

    Why such low swing speed? Is that your keep it in play swing? J/K



    Impressive numbers. That explains the almost two inches of tipping! Going to a 60 gram shaft, are you tipping that even more?

    I actually think it’s automatically giving a 1.5 smash and estimating club speed from ball speed reading. I did hit a few that certainly weren’t squared up perfectly and they all said 1.5.

    I was just teasing you.



    But dude, that ball speed. And, it may be under estimating your swing speed. With a less than perfect strike, it would take more effort to get those speeds.

    It’s typical for me in mid season form. So pleasantly surprised to be there when I’m just now starting to get rid of the rust.

    I don't think my body could physically handle swinging that fast. Good stuff. Eager to hear your thoughts on the Rogue 130 White when you get it in play.

    You finding a big difference in spin just going from the g400 to the m3?



    I hit a tour issue m4 last night lofed down and opened up and it was great. Seemed to spin less and a more flat ball flight

    If true playing loft is identical the m3 spins less but not by as much as you’d think. My G400 max tour head had a playing loft of 7* and paired with the tour green I was getting approx 11* loft and 2500-2600 spin. I have the m3 at 7.9* and was averaging 12* and 2800 spin with the Diamana DF. I’d guesstimate that with all variables the exact same the m3 probably spins 200rpm less than my g400max tour head did.



    EDIT: But then again I don’t have my m3 weights adjusted for the lowest spin setting either. I have 7g of melt toe side and forward with one weight in the middle and one weight in the rear. So I guess it could be set up to spin lower.

    The raw weight is 69g so it’s not much lighter overall. Interesting tidbit is that the balance point is actually lower than it is with the DF. I will check the SW when I get to the course in the next couple days. With the white being a lighter shaft( albeit not by much) and counterbalanced, I have an extra 5g weight en route for my m3 in case it swingweights a little too light.
