SO...I just got a 910 D3 with the 'ahina x72 by Diamana for Titleist...It is a beautiful club with a great looking setup at address but...I am very disappointed in the shaft. It feels incredibly weak for a x-flex shaft. Is anyone else having this problem or noticed this? I have had the 73g diamana whiteboard in a 907 D2 as well as an Accra X SC95 in the same head and was hoping this 'ahina would be comparable but maybe I am mistaken. Any suggestions or tid bits?

Any "made for" shaft is usually weak and tip soft. That head is awesome, that shaft is not. Take your whiteboard and have the 910 adapter put on. You will be good to go.

I did not care for the stock ahina. It is not even close to the real ahina.

I just got the D3 with the same stock ahina shaft, only in "stiff" flex. I'm coming off a 909D2 with the Whiteboard 73 X flex. I loved the club because I tended to have a high flight and could hit lowish screamers - also I'm a lefty and could never get a low enough loft - 9.5 in both the D2 and the new D3 - but had trouble controlling the flight when it wasn't time for a full swing - you know - just trying to get a clutch one in the fairway... That X shaft and big slow feeling head messed with the timing. The adjustability in the D3 is a godsend for we abused lefties.

I have hit about 50 balls over three sessions with the D3 "stiff" on the practice tee and love it - "made for" shaft and all. Maybe I'm missing out in not having a higher quality shaft, but I'm getting plenty of distance, roll and a better feel. I am sure my swing speed is up due to the smaller head - 112-116 with the old D2 per a Golfsmith test drive in 2009. Swinging the 460 cc head started to feel like it had the head cover attached - I'm 50. This new club is terrific. Can't wait to get it on the course. Feels very controllable for different shaped shots. I'd like to hear more about a shaft change from other users. Now if the *&@! weather will cooperate...

Order the "made for" Diamana shafts tipped 1" and it's just like the real deal aside from the graphics
Anyone know where to get Titleist shaft adapters that cost less that $50?

That's what Titleist claim but based on past experience I doubt that is totally true???

Maybe the aftermarket has a triax engine nano hybrid zylon infused magic technology.

In all seriousness, I would like to know tipped 1 " versus aftermarket. Anybody?

Wasn't the only difference btw the g4t and x5ct models the length of tip section to allow for bore thru heads?
