Driver Shaft Question


Guest bcowhey

Recommended Posts

New member to forums here, just a quick question for anyone out there very familiar with driver shafts. Just recently got fit for full bag of new Titleist clubs and absolutely loving how the equipment is performing. I only have two small issues.

I was fit into the TS3 driver and the TS2 3 wood. For the TS3 I hit with the EvenFlow T1100 White 6.5X 75g shaft and absolutely loved the feel and performance, but for some reason I can't really but a finger on I really wasn't a fan of the white shaft's contrast with the gloss black head. When I was hitting the TS2 3 wood, I was hitting with a Diamana model, I believe the D+PLUS Limited 80X. It performed great for me and I much preferred the look of the Diamana to the EvenFlow. When I ordered I requested the Diamana in both the driver and 3 wood but I guess Titleist didn't have those shafts or the fitter messed up and I got the EvenFlow in both clubs. Nothing really wrong with the performance -- to be quite honest I really like the feel of the shafts -- but visually they mess with my eyes and at some point I'd like to expand into some aftermarket shafts that might prove to perform better for me. So now for the question:

How comparable is the EvenFlow to the Fujikura Ventus 7X and the Diamana D+PLUS Limited 70TX? I've heard fantastic things about both but the heavier weight of the Ventus (78g in Ventus vs 76g in EvenFlow) and the TX stiffness in the Diamana (which actually has same weight as EvenFlow) seem to tell me that there could possibly be changes to swing weight or feel or performance etc. I'm not an expert in this area whatsoever so I'd love anyone's input on which to switch into.

All else being the same (flex, weight), I personally feel like the EF White and D+ are fairly comparable. Granted, I don't recognize the dozens of feel characteristics that some people pick up on, but I've happily used white and black evenflow shafts and I've got a long history using various generations of whiteboards before that. I could be mistaken, but I'm fairly certain that both the EF and D+ shafts are traditional weight balance, and the extra tip stability of the EFW compared to the rest of the EF kinda winds up backing it into a mid-butt soft profile, if that makes sense. Can't comment on the Ventus. Best of luck to you, and you might find that you stop looking at the color difference after a little while.
