Up date:
The Stock Shaft from TM is really Holding it’s own... was never a Diamana Shaft Fan, but this is good...

I wonder if it’s a Made for or OEM ??

I tried looking something up about it a while back but there was nothing to be found. I’m guessing it’s some one off or prototype shaft or something they got a deal on to put in the OO since it is kind of a niche club. But I’ve been wrong many a time before.

Played league tonight and absolutely murdered the OO with the Smoke Green in it. I was a few paces behind guys I normally drive with but I only missed one fairway all night and it was safe in the first cut. I haven’t kept track but I would say my average driving distance is up although my longest drives probably aren’t as long. Just way more consistent and hitting my second shots from the short grass. On the flip side I shot 47 tonight because now that I’m driving it well my short game has gone to shit

How is the distance loss / accuracy gain for you guys after a couple of rounds? Are you still happy?
Is the 13.5° head giving you good launch conditions? Have always played 9° or 9.5° drivers.

And if theres anyone in Europe wanting to let one go... please let me know. :)

I’ve lofted  mine DOWN to 11.5* and I’ll quote a comment tonight...

What’s that rocket your hitting!

For me it’s slightly , and I mean slightly shorter than a good Drive ,with a Full Fat version but the risk and reward totally outweighs the other!

The mini is a good Tool well worth the risk!

I’m in love with mine. Way more accurate with it than a full length driver and it has the perfect launch characteristics for me in the 13.5 turned down one notch with the HZRDUS Smoke Green 70 6.0 at 43.5” playing length. It feels incredibly solid.

Strongly considering selling doing away with full length driver altogether and adding an 18* UT driving iron or a 64* PM Grind wedge

I'll be doing the same, as in not having a full length driver (Ping Rapture 12.5* atm) and getting a 64* PM Grind.

I believe standard to be 43.3/4
Glued the MIC ( yes)Small Batch Hulk Shaft and I think I’m going 44”

Well that was a waste of Time lol

What's up? Are you not Hulk enough for the Hulk shaft?
Hmmm nope!
There just isn’t any feel for me!

I hit the Ping 410 plus against the Mini with the 3 different shafts and not one got near the Ping!
Worrying I know

The shaft in the Ping was the Tensi Orange/Red Stiff

The 410+ is very good. I went to a Ping fitting and the Tour 65x was best for me. Couldn't get the timing right with the Tensei Orange.

I was surprised just how good the Dispersion was.. maybe a little Bit to high of a Flight.. maybe but equal to the mini for finding the short stuff... but longer!
