PostSubject: Whats the differences between tour ad bb and tour ad DI?   Wed May 23, 2012 4:30 pm

hi,
Need some help from the forum people. I was recently introduced to tour AD BB and tour AD DI. Both looks similar to me in specs but seems like BB is the latest and most recommended one. Any folks here use the tour AD BB now and how does this compared to DI? Assume i use 6S?

Latest, but not necessarily most recommended. I suggest you go to see a qualify club fitter for advice. Contact DGman, perhaps. There is no telling what fits you without a club fitter seeing your numbers and your swing.

In short, they have different bend profile that would fit different kind of players with different kind of swing.

Went to Big Fish to get GD AD DI shaft, as they were getting amazing reviews... after trackman session, Eric recommanded i get BB, as its mid kick and will launch ball higher,I was told all other aspect of shaft are similar.

Like Yarra said, go to qualified club fitter (i recommand Big Fish) and get fitting session. This would be best option before investing your hard money.

Cheers

isn't the DI gonna launch higher than the BB?

again, without sounding like a broken record, trackman and the advice of DGman will tell you what is suitable for YOU.

they are both pricey, if that's not an issue... else, there are more economical options out there.

just to expand a bit on shaft selection.

the tour ad range is pretty interesting and covers a wide spectrum of swing type with 3 product range DJ, DI and BB. they are all positioned as mid kick but have a different shaft stiffness and wall thickness at the tip, therefore the weight distribution and spin properties will be quite different.

a lot depends on the equipment itself - loft, face angle, weight, MOI, face depth. more important, the golfer's swing abilities like his club path, club face at impact, AOA, club head speed and ball speed will help us determine weight, flex and shaft type.

its like Asahi - he loves his Fubuki K and when the BB was launch i have to used different tactic to get one in his bag and i am sure he is not regretting it. in his case, the BB will suit his unique swing to a T. once you understand how the tip action works, its not difficult to match swing to shaft.

one must be cautioned that the shaft is not the engine of the driver. the player is the engine. even with the right shaft, it does not change a bad input into a good shot. the right shaft will optimize a good shot and minimize the ill effects of a bad shot.

also we hope to be able to present a new range of performance shaft in Singapore soon.

have fun........DGman

I beg to differ. The shaft IS the engine. The player is the driver. Laughing

Btw, I think I know what's coming and it will be exciting.

Pak Yarra, I believe engine is the one that generates energy/power up the car. The shaft can't swing itself if not powered up by the player Smile
So the player is both the engine and and the driver.

In relations to the recent equipment would be "One man's broom stick is another man's belly putter"

Yea, that 'tactic' is a fatal chink in my armour of resisting poison.

But glad that I got poisoned and got the Tour AD BB. Razz

Just to add on, in my case, my input (i.e. flat swing) is a poor one. But with the right shaft prescribed to it, it kinda improved my tee off. So personally to me, the shaft is the engine and I got matched to the right shaft!

Thanks DGman!
