Howdy all,

Did a driver fitting and settled on the Tour AD DI 6X being a great fit for my driver. Speed was about 110 and I seemed to respond well to the handle section being stiffer.

Naturally I'd like to tinker with my U500 which currently has a Smoke 6.5 (95g) in it - which is ok but I'm far from in love with it...

I'd love some options and feedback on what might suit from others that have experimented - my initial thoughts are something like a Tour AD 95/105? But know they can vary profilewise quite a bit?

A little extra height would be welcomed - Anyway let's see some options.

    Hard to go wrong w the AD, but there should be many shafts w better fitting profiles than the Smoke.

    Don’t get the Tour AD Driving Iron. It is trash. I played the DI in my driver but recently got better numbers with my BB so went that route, still have my DI 7x in my 3w and I smoke it.

    I played the AD 95x in my driving iron for a year or so and just couldn’t hit it for squat. Unstable, felt like a noodle, super inconsistent. I hated it. Recently got fit at Club Champion for a KBS Hybrid Tour Prototype 85s and it feels so good man.

    Thanks for the feedback!

    I had some reservations about the DI being a little wild - I like the KBS suggestion also.

    I'm also considering the Oban hybrid stuff..
