    Nice results 3woodvt!



    I'm loving my GP 7x, it's really knocked some spin off my drives which I actually needed. Weird thing is it doesn't feel boardy at all to me, nice smooth load and some kick through the ball. Shaft feels "dense" at impact compared to the OG Whiteboard 73x, like it filters out the bad vibes LOL

    if you really want a good shaft, skip both of these and get an M9003!




    Someday, after I save a bunch of lunch money I'll grab one of these to try!
    Thanks Hammer. First time in about 10 years doing the fitting thing. Been fitted for irons before but never driver. Your description is what I experienced and right on the mark for me and you. Funny thing is I wouldn't have known what you were talking about until after today. It's nice being in the right equipment for a change. Love my irons, hoping I'll love the Driver change, and putting has always been my strength. Cheers! Trying to get back to 0 or dare I say maybe a + GHIN> image/taunt.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':taunt:' /> .



    PS. My launch went up a degree with the AD-GP but my spin was dropping 300 on average and was getting some great carry for me. Looking forward to seeing if that transposes to the course.

    update. First round with new shaft combo and hit 9 of 12 fairways and longer and tighter that previous combo. One bad tee shot due to high toe hit in left rough. Other misses were no trouble. Very nice shaft. I've finally got a shaft I can stick with and not wonder anymore for the next 5 years+. Get Fitted...It pays off. 74 on my 72.7/141 track.

    Got to say I'm quite surprised by comments about the AD-GP being boardy - I didn't find that at all. Stiff, of course, but not boardy - certainly nowhere near as boardy as my 'ahina in comparible weight and flex. It's a really good shaft, as are all of the Graphite Design offerings at the moment.



    I'm looking forward to hitting the AD-TP. Sounds like that might be the one to go for just for those days when you're not totally at it. Sounds like a great 3W profile too.



    For some context, I use C-Taper in my irons.

    I agree as it's anything but boardy for me. Sounds like those making those comments probably need to be in a softer profile like the AD-DI or AD-TP. I was actually worried about it being not stiff enough and I'm sub 110 SS. Turns out its perfect for me and my 106-110SS.



    Everyone is different and each person needs to be honest with their limitations. For those that find it not stiff enough they can move up to the next level and the M9003. The very stiff tip and firm mid and firm butt is just what many of us really like. Those that like the soft butt and firm tip probably love the AD-BB and so on. I would be describing the M9003 as "boardy" in stiff flex as I don't particularly like a really stiff mid section but in reality it would be the wrong shaft for me to begin with. When talking shafts a person is crazy to base their purchase off someone else's description on the internet. Go and hit it and make the decision once you see your numbers and how it feels to you. If you don't like how it feels I doubt that person would be keeping it very long.



    PS. The not very stiff mid section really loads this club for me as I start an aggressive downswing and creates a wonderful feel and kick for me at impact. Hard to describe but oh so sweet at impact. The very stiff tip keeps the face square along with it's low torque and the ball just wants to always go strait. Perfect shaft for some of us.

    Wasn't really a fan of the AD GP in my M series driver - Just ordered a 2017 M1 w/ the AD TP 6X Tipped 1/2"



    I'm an AD DI fan in my 3-wood, so I'm thinking the AD TP w/ a 9.5* head may be the ticket. I'll be testing it against my Tensei CK Pro White 70TX.

    Ditto! I'm excited to hear your thoughts on these two shafts.

    Bomber 11 I too am looking forward to your thoughts on the TP you're trying but the GP and TP have almost the same profile with the GP mostly having a stiffer tip than the TP. If you're tipping the TP wouldn't that kinda make it just like the GP? I know the GP is slightly firmer in the but end but very little. Anyway look forward to hearing your thoughts.

    Oh my God!. Just dropped the G LS with new shaft down to 8* and wow. Ain't even gonna elaborate. Would love to get back on a monitor. Was 162 ball speed with 15 launch and 2300 spin.



    Looks like around 12-13 launch with less spin and another 5 or 10 yards. Hmmm? Got to go back somewhere and monitor this thing to compare my original set up at 275 avg carry^^.



    Looks like 8 degrees it is now. image/taunt.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':taunt:' /> image/superman2.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':superman2:' /> . Mark it 8 Dude...and don't look back. image/lock.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':lock:' />

    "firm butt is just what many of us really like."



    agreed...



    On related note I didn't get fitted but based on my experience and the posts I have a gd tp coming to me soon! Thanks all.

    I was able to sneak in a little launch monitor time yesterday. Had the front weight centered, and back track all the way to the rear.



    Taylormade M1 9.5 w/ Tensei CK Pro White 70TX
    • Swing Speed: 117 mph
    • Ball Speed: 175 mph
    • Carry Distance: 309
    • Total Distance: 331
    • Spin: 2100 RPM
    • Launch Angle: 12.7*


    Impressions: The Tensei CK Pro White 70TX is very smooth in relation to how firm it is. You can tell it's made to super tight tolerances, and of very high quality materials. It 'kicks' the exact same every time, which I loved because launch angle and dispersion were super tight. I'll need to test further in the summer when I'm loose and swinging a little faster, but for now I'm very pleased with this shaft. I do need to regrip it, as the mid-size that came on it wasn't helping me turn the ball over at all.





    Taylormade M1 9.5 w/ Graphite Design AD TP 6X
    • Swing Speed: 118 mph
    • Ball Speed: 177 mph
    • Carry Distance: 316
    • Total Distance: 327
    • Spin: 2350
    • Launch Angle: 13.6*


    Impressions: Whoever called this shaft "AD DI on Steroids" was very accurate. It feels physically more petite than the Tensei (I believe it tapers down faster than most shafts?) - however, it holds its own as far as firmness w/ the CK Pro White. To me, it feels like AD DI w/ a little bit less active kick. Essentially like an AD DI and AD GP had a baby and painted it silver. It launches higher than the Tensei, AD GP, or AD BB. The difference between this and AD DI is I never felt "out of control" with this shaft. At 118 the AD DI would've began feeling whippy and soft, and the AD TP didn't. Very smooth, easy to load, and releases max power on the ball.

    Impressions: Whoever called this shaft "AD DI on Steroids" was very accurate. It feels physically more petite than the Tensei (I believe it tapers down faster than most shafts?) - however, it holds its own as far as firmness w/ the CK Pro White. To me, it feels like AD DI w/ a little bit less active kick. Essentially like an AD DI and AD GP had a baby and painted it silver. It launches higher than the Tensei, AD GP, or AD BB. The difference between this and AD DI is I never felt "out of control" with this shaft. At 118 the AD DI would've began feeling whippy and soft, and the AD TP didn't. Very smooth, easy to load, and releases max power on the ball.



    If I were to rank the driver shafts I've hit in the last year on overall performance and feel:
    1. Tensei CK Pro White 70TX
    2. Graphite Design AD TP 6X
    3. Graphite Design AD BB 6X
    4. Fujikura Speeder 661 Evo II X
    5. Graphite Design AD DI 7X
    6. Aldila Rogue Silver 60 X
    7. Project X Hzrdus Red 6.0
    8. Graphite Design AD GP 6X
    9. Project X Hzrdus Black 75 6.5
    10. Matrix Ozik Black Tie 75M4





    Nice write up. Did you tip either of these? I have a similar swing speed and like the DI and the BB tipped 1".

    That's the only version Taylormade has available on their website for upgrade options.



    Since I get 40% off everything Taylormade, it made more sense to go that route vs. ordering the AD TP at retail. I believe it's $380 retail, and I paid $419.99 for the M1 driver w/ AD TP in it image/smile.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':)' />

    Seems odd that they would offer the 60 gram, but not the 70 gram. I could kind of understand not having an 80 gram, because there probably wouldn't be as much demand, but the 70 seems like it would be popular enough to warrant offering it with the 60. Maybe they'll offer the 70 at a later date.

    If anyone has hit a AD TP 8X in their fairway wood, would love to hear thoughts. I think with a bit of tipping, its profile sounds like a superb fairway shaft.



    Been gaming a Kai'li 80X tipped 1" and it's been solid. Intrigued to upgrade, as I want a bit more out of my 3W. Looking for the same launch / slightly less spin.
