Are they saying a shaft like the AD DI is suited for players who fade the ball, or that it will impart more of a fade when fit into any head compared to shafts like the AD IZ?

They’re saying it will impart more of a fade. Perhaps “more prone to…”. Now it’s up for debate if they actually do. Don’t shoot the messenger! Haha. I’ve hit plenty of fades/slices with a VR 🤣

I have not noticed the 7S AD-DI I have in a 3 wood to favor a fade. Pretty easy to draw it, I would say. It is a fantastic fairway shaft. Fun to swing it because the impact feel is very satisfying. A slightly stiffer version of it would be sweet.

10/15.  I'm seriously tempted to get one even though I have a Diamana PD on the way.  Love the color scheme and graphics.  It looks like it will have the stiffest tip out of everything else in their line up which is right up my alley.  I do worry about it have such a soft mid section though.

They have profile info on here. Looks pretty good to me soft from butt through mid and stiffens up at the tip. Basically stiffer DI?

I would have to say that on paper that's what it looks like.  More stable DI that launches slightly lower as well.  I had the OG DI for many years as my gamer.  It was loosey goosey off the tee for me but I hit some of my longest drives.  Hopefully the increased overall stiffness resolves that issue.  I have two cousins that have the TP in their bag and I'm a big fan.  Just want something that launches a hair lower and the UB seems to fit the bill.  The fact that it looks to be a bit more fade biased also makes it more appealing.  I asked @JustinDto save me a UB in 7 TX already when he gets them in next month.  😂

Being told a more stable DI with stiff tip like the XC, which Just put an XC 6TX in driver and love it, but it launches a bit lower, really excited to try this one out.
