    I’m not going to lie, but I am a bit disappointed in the 919Ts. I’ve lost at least a club from my 716 AP2’s. Lofts are the same on both sets, but I was fit for a different shaft. AP2s were X100s, and the 919s are Rifle Blank 6.0’s, so obviously a softer and higher spinning shaft. Could a shaft issue be causing a 15 yard difference in the two? Feel is amazing on the 919’s, but they just seem to go nowhere and drop out of the sky for me. Thoughts?

    If the ball is launching higher and spinning more, then it would definitely contribute to the distance loss. You also might be finding the center of the face more with the AP2/X100 combo

    Definitely a shaft issue. I have played both JPX 919 Tour and AP2 718's with the same and different shafts (but similar) and they go the exact same distance for me within 2-3 yards from PW down to the 5 iron.

    Thanks for the feedback guys! I feel I am hitting making good contact with the ball, so I am leaning to the shaft issue. I am going to try out some of the forged and see if it makes any difference. I guess fittings can go a lot of ways, and you never really know until you game them.
