Tour 905R vs retail...


Recommended Posts

alignment, performance, where to buy?
does the tour 905R have the same alignment aid on the crown as the retail 905R?

can anyone out there who has a tour 905R or who has hit one compare it to the retail, are the performance characteristics the same or are there differences?

i have a v2 75x in my ignite 460. i want to pull it and put it in a 905R 8.5* or 9.5* or both. since i have the shaft, is there any place i can get the heads without buying the whole club. moreover, i DO NOT want to get a head from a golfsmith or golf galaxy as i have seen how they get clanged around and handled by customers and staff.(no offense to anyone who may work at one of these places) i do not have the cash to buy tour heads (no matter how much i want to) so therefore, anyone know where/or who is reputable enough that i could buy these heads from where i can trust they have been handled with care?

thanks folks, lay it on me...

yes, a tour 905R will have the same alinement aid (DCI symbol). A tour head will be closer to square or a tad bit open, and can have a more solid feel. Unless you buy the clubhead from someone who pulled the shaft, I am sure that TM is the only brand that you can get the head only. My guess...go the Ebay route, or find a 905R with a V2..it is an option you know...

I bought mine at my club and it has a dead square face. titleist is usually pretty good with their tolerances on their drivers. and not all clubs are banged around at the stores. why dont you go into your local golf store and ask if they have any in the back that they could bring out for you. also most of these stores now have titleist DEMO clubs that perspective buyers hit rather than the drivers that are out on the shelves for sale.

i would do that if i didn't already know how clubs in the back are handled at those stores...i work at such a retailer and see regularly that they get banged up in the back by employees, on the floor by customers and though there are demo clubs, the ones on the rack often see time in the hitting bays. i'm not the only one in my store who feels this way, employee discount or not. i'm sure Titleist is strict about what they distribute, but i'm not confident in what's on the rack. I prefer to order direct from the company customized to my specs or from someone who can order for me, that's just me.

 

if anyone knows of a company where i can be confident that the least number of hands will touch the item once it has been assembled at Titleist, or (Preferrably) can custom order from Titleist, please let me know, I'd really appreciate it.

 

thanks,

Josh

And this is coming from a guy that has 2 "TP" clubs, 2 "Y cutter" wedges, a set of X Tours, a pair of "Tour" 360 Adidas' and it looks as if all you wear are J. Lindeberg clothes, and you're telling this guy that HE'S the one being picky?! I suppose that those TP's, X Tour's, and J. Lindeberg's were the first things you picked up too right? Yeah right. :yahoo:

Sorry for not answering you question but I just had to take the bait on that one! Now, where were we? If I were in the market for a club like you describe I would either PM some of the guys here that sell lots of tour clubs because they might have a connection somewhere. If that doesn't work I would try to find a club/course near you that is a "Titleist club/course". You know...the pro has all Titleist equipment and that's really all they sell in the proshop. I'm sure you can find what you want if you contact the latter. Good luck! Simp

Get one through discount dans special order....itll touch only titleist's hands and yours....supporting a forum sponsor...getting a good deal....and getting a club thats untouched...

YEP. That's where I got my custom R and several other clubs. Best prices around and their turn around is always crazy quick. Thanks again Dan and crew!

 

Also, whoever came up with the lemming thing... Definition- The act of following the crowd into an investment that will inevitably head for disaster. Kinda nice when one simple word kinda just sums it all up.
