AD XC In driver what for fairway? AD DI AD IZ?


Recommended Posts

So i put together a epic max ls with a AD XC 7tx and it is absolutely amazing so I was looking at getting a epic speed fairway.  Currently I have the sim 2 with ad xc 8x at 42.5 inches but the epic series seems to be easier to hit and a better fit.  I love the feel of the ad xc but might want a bit wore launch and spin for the 3 wood.  I was looking at the ad iz since it seems to use similar materials as the xc but haven't been able to hit it.  Open to other options.  I have tried ventus and while nice i like a bit more feel that i get from the shafts like the ad xc for timing.

 

Thanks,

Ed

IZ is a good choice however, it might launch a bit too high for your liking.  I would recommend the TP.  To me it's the modern version of the DI, but it's more stable in terms of dispersion IMO.  It's

If more loft didn't do the trick the IZ is a good one to try. If you wanted a XC but with a little more butt stiffness and a little less tip stiffness, it's the IZ

I have the HD in driver and IZ in 4 wood, 7 wood and hybrid. Can’t go wrong with the IZ or the DI. I tried both and had better dispersion with the IZ but (marginally) better feel with the DI. I went with the IZ for the tighter dispersion. Both IZ and DI felt better than Ventus blue imho.

Going to go with an IZ in my fairways. First round today with the IZ since switching to it from the TP and was getting longer carries and straighter flight in the driver. Bet the IZ will be good in the fairways.
