Taylor Made V-steel and a Blue TOUR 90 Shaft....

Recommended Posts

Is this a good combination? ... Or something else?
I have just acquired a Taylor Made V-steel TOUR issue 15* fairway wood. I was wondering what shafts are popular to maximize the performance qualities of this head?

Also, I have a Grafalloy Blue TOUR 90 S shaft laying around that I acquired a short time ago, however, I have no idea as to the tip trimming instructions regarding this shaft.

Does anyone here know what the tip trimming instructions for the Grafalloy Blue TOUR 90 shaft are?

Also, would this shaft work well in this club? :)

Just for information: I currently use a Diamana 83 S in my driver (a TM 510 TP 8.5*) Swing speed around 108mph with a moderately smooth transition, (but not too smooth.) :cheesy:

It's been a couple years ago since we got our first Grafalloy Tour 90 X, we had one in a driver and we put one in a TM 200 tour ridgie. This was a tour only shaft, somewhere around 3.0 torque, and weighing around 95 grams. This is a lively shaft with a mid soft tip section, similar to the Pro 95 or Purple Ice launch wise but more lively.

 

My son plays his driver around the 270ish cpm's, and we had to take this Tour X more toward the 285ish cpm's to play to flex, even at 285 cpm's this shaft wasn't boardy or overly stiff. All in all a tremendous shaft in a fw wood in my opinion. My suggestion would be too bounce your driver, and trim this shaft to play at least 10 cpm's more than your driver. :)

Is the Grafalloy Blue TOUR 90 shaft similar in nature to the Grafalloy Blue TOUR 70 shaft that (I think) is available in the Golfsmith catalog?

Or is it a completely different shaft. (Basically I'm asking if the trim chart for the TOUR 70 shaft will work for the Blue TOUR 90 shaft?)

 

I know that I can try to do this by frequency, like you have mentioned, but there have been articles in other places about how trying to match CPM numbers between graphite shafts is almost impossible due to the fact that the kick points between different manufacturer's graphite shafts react completely different to one another! (Apparently, it's not the same as steel!) :)

 

 

So, since I want to put this in a fairway wood (3-wood, at 43") I need to know at least some rough tip trim amounts for this shaft.

 

Thanks for your help (and to the others that might chime in here, in advance)!

In my eagerness to help you, I have allowed my eagerness to out distance my knowledge of the fore mentioned subject. :) Otherwise, take with a grain of salt all that I say.

 

I was giving you the quick answer, and my son has played this shaft, and I having hit it some. As I remember, this shaft, the Tour 90 X, was trimmed around 1 1/4" inserted in the 3 wood. This shaft is pretty beefy, and even though the frequency turned out quite high, the shaft was still smooth and without any boardy feeling what so ever.

 

The Tour 90 X, (ours were X flex) is a totally different shaft than the Tour 70 X. (again, this was an X flex also)

The Tour 70 X, which now sells in Golfsmith and other retailers was supposed to be the same as the tour only Tour 70 X shaft but I don't know that for sure. The tour only Tour 70 X that I had was a touch lighter than the Grafalloy Tour 70 for retail, I'm guessing off the top of my head that it's around 75 grams and mid 3's torque.

 

I hope my rambling hasn't confused you too much, I was merely trying to give you some information, limited as it might be, until someone with something more substantial could help you further.

 

Cheers :cheesy:
