    M2 Tour 3 wood with the AD GP 7 is quickly become my favorite 3 wood ever!

    That is great to know. I'm going to play with the current shaft (speeder 757 ts) in my M2 Tour one more time, and then will probably install the AD-GP 8TX and see what happens.

    I don't get as much lift off the deck as I would like but I might hit it off the deck 1x per round, this is mostly a tee club for me.

    I hit the GP and TP on trackman and thought the GP was a terrible shaft for what its worth. I have a fast transition with around 116-120mph SS and the GP was all over the place while the TP was with me the whole swing. What it really comes down to is the user and testing.

    I took my F7+ with GP 6X to a Trackman fitting and the fitter couldn't find anything that could beat that club for me. (The Speeder Platinum is so freaking smooth, didn't work for me but it's best feeling shaft Ive ever hit. I am a Fuji guy however ) I have a 7X coming to try in my 3 wood.

    J13 I have a Atmos Black 7X that you would love. Too much shaft for me but someone with your swing speed would kill it.

    Also 3 wood tipping? I've seen some people say no way, but website says 1/2 inch for 3 woods. Did you guys tip your 3 woods?

    Hey Axman, I also had success with Tour AD TP in F7+ but recently switched to Atmos Red 6X. It performs exactly as described. Have you tried Red?

    I am afraid the Atmos red would launch too high and spin too much for me. I have a Atmos Black 6X as well as the 7X (yes I have a problemøŸ˜¬). I bought both because everything I read said it was the new version of the Speeder Tour Spec 6.2 VC which has been my go to shaft for years. However Atmos seems to preform differently for me than the Speeder. Also, with my first time on Trackman I learned a ton about my driver swing. I do not have a problem with launch. Spin is my enemy due to a negative AoA (-1.5 and sometimes more) no shaft is gonna fix that... some of spin numbers were in the 4500-5000s with a 14-15 degree launch on some swings. This totally explains why I am 1 to 2 clubs longer than guys who hit their driver past me and thus answers my quest on why I can't find the right shaft. The GP works for now (reasonable launch and spin under 3500) until I can fix that AoA, then I will try and get back on Trackman and get a proper shaft fitting. (Having said that I have a Rogue limited 125 on the way because I liked it so much during the fitting, yes I have a problemøŸ˜¬).

    I've recently switched to AD-TP's from GP's. Much happier with TP. Feel is better and it seems like I'm getting dead center hits more often than with the GP.

    A fan of the TP here as well... Atmos Blue is my 2nd favorite of the season thus far, but something Judge 440 said rang true for me as well. It just seems like my strikes are more often centered with the TP.

    Axman, if spin is your issue...you need to try an Agera. That'll lower your spin but still be playable. Check it out. I love the shaft but I've for launch issues. Might be perfect fit for you?

    yes on tipping 3 wood shaft. I missed a fairway a few weeks back and was in shock. 108ss. GP shaft best I've ever played and been doing it for 40 years now but get fit as everyone is different for example the DI which many rave about was disastrous for me.

    Hey fellas,



    Quick review of 3W performance with TP-8X. Cally XR 3Deep @ 42.25" tipped 1".



    This shaft is referred to as a AD-DI on steroids and although I slightly agree, it is noticeably more stout with still satisfying but less pronounced kick. It can truly hang with the biggest of hitters but is playable enough for medium transitions too.



    I'm getting true mid flight / low spin with this setup. It is not as workable as I hoped, but it is a very straight shaft. It flat out performs in the wind as well, significant improvement from my previous shaft (Kai'li 80X). Distance is top tier as well. I've gained only 3-4 carry yards but Im getting better spin numbers and leading to decent rollout on tee balls. The switch was well worth it for me.



    I'm most surprised with how stable this shaft feels, but in a non harsh way.



    It's awesome in 3W, I definitely recommend it. I would advise tipping it a bit less than usual, it plays plenty stiff, does not need excessive tipping like a DI. I think Graphite Design hit the mark with this shaft, it slots perfectly between a DI and a GP - giving you a bit of each and forming a truly unique shaft in their lineup.



    I will comment on driver and 5W performance (check my witb) when I've had more time for testing on course/range

    Decided to put the GP-8TX in my 3-wood, and will be playing a few rounds this coming weekend. Should have some feedback by next week.
  • BigHook25BigHook25 Members Posts: 2,293 ✭✭✭✭✭✭
    Ok, so this is my first go with a graphite design shaft. I've hit more Mitsubushi and Aldila shafts, and also some Matrix and Fujikura shafts. I put a GP 8TX in my 3-wood and have a few rounds with it so far. Some might say it is a little "boardy", but those type of shafts are more along the profile of shafts I tend to play. To me the shaft just feels stable from butt to tip, without feeling harsh in any way. The golf ball seemed to hold its line very well. With stiffer shafts, sometimes you may have to worry about lower launch, but I never had an issues. My friend even hit a few with it and had a nice mid launch without any ballooning. Some of the launch may have been helped by the fairway wood (2017 M2 Tour 15 degree), which is fairly easy to launch in my opinion. I wasn't swinging all that well, but even with some bad swings I never noticed the golf ball curve that much. It almost stayed where it started or had a little movement to it.



    So far I'm very impressed with the GP and it will stay in my fairway wood. Never hit the AD TP, so no comparison to that shaft.

    Thanks for the review. I've been gaming my GP for a few weeks now and have been impressed. Seems easy to load and the harder I swing the better it performs. Makes me really want to get a GP for my 3W.

    I just picked up the TP 6X. My SS is usually between 108 to 111 mph. It is installed straight in on a 915 D2 and I just hit it at the range last night. It feels very smooth to me and I am glad I didn't go with the stiff as the X feels like it is more between stiff and x-stiff. I will be hitting it on a trackman this week and I look forward to the numbers. It appeared to fly higher and carry farther than my speeder 757 (stiff) and with similar spin as it rolled out... trackman will confirm that. I would say that based on my initial range session the TP lives up to the mid-high launch and low spin shaft that feels smooth. I did hit my son's DI 6X in his 917 D2 and it had a very similar flight but with a bit less roll out. I really like the extra carry distance the TP gives me and I anticipate the trackman numbers will support a bit longer total distance as well.

    Great numbers. I'm going to play some more with the 8TX, and then might put a 7X in my driver. I agree with you about swinging harder, as I often go at it pretty hard with an aggressive transition, and the GP appears to be able to stand up to aggressive swings.

    Based on the numbers with my driver and the way the shaft feels I have every reason to believe it would be great in a 3W. I'd be tempted to go 8TX as well.

    I picked up a TP 7x recently but haven't been able to hit due to a foot injury, but I don't know if it's been tipped or not. Does anyone know what it is from the end of a TM adapter to the first ring for an untipped TP shaft? Really hoping the heavier weight of the shaft brings more consistency even though I'm not as long as lot of guys on here.

    Any of you guys rocking a GP in a 2017 M2? If so, how do you like it. I recently sold my 9.5 915D2 to try and gain a few yards with the M2. Should I stick with the 9.5 or maybe try the 10.5 or is there a new shaft out there I should be looking for that pairs well with the M2 head? I never got a chance to hit the 915D2 and M2 side by side. Thanks guys!

    Anyone compared the Tour AD TP 6 against the LTD Diamana D+ 70? Feel like these are two really similar shafts, but I don't know much about shafts. All I know is one costs quite a bit more than the other. I really liked the Tour AD TP 6X but couldn't justify spending an extra $200 for the upcharge over the D+70S. Someone help me justify it.
    Got 14 daggum golf clubs, but none of 'em hit the ball straight.

    I've played a Motore Speeder 7.2 TS in my R1, R15 and '16 M1 since 2012. Love that shaft, boardy tip stiff and heavy, usually point and shoot accurate as well. Just took delivery of a '17 M2 with the TP6 in it. My thoughts are this it performs equal in launch and spin numbers but you can definitely feel it load and kick, in other words, I say I don't have to work as hard with this shaft vs. the Speeder. Would love to see how it compares to the new Atmos though. Was never a fan of the DI series as it felt too soft and spun too much.

    The GP is closer to the .2 TS lineup in terms of feel since it's tip stiff and has that boardier feel. The TP, As someone else described, is the DI on steroids. A little firmer in the tip but it kills spin and feel great still.

    I really want to try the AD TP 6S/7S. Has anyone found them to be whippy at all? Their middle of the road torque specs are right in my preference zone.




    I went from the DI to the TP and it is what I would consider smack dab in the middle of the DI and the GP in terms of "whippy." I have a low/mid flight with a medium tempo and the TP was perfect. I wanted to like the GP but it was too low launching for me but I know it is great for some. I have historically preferred a tighter feeling shaft like the GP but the TP was perfect in launch and feel.
