D2 really very forgiving. D3 is true titleist still! Meaning u need to be good to bring out its best!

If considering to put on tour ad (latest MJ), check out the wts thread for potentially good deal. Smile

Checked with GD Ubi and was quoted around $900 plus for tour Ad DI.
Guess the $200 up charge not applicable.

I own 910 d2, then 913 d2.  They all about the same.  Same look, same performance.  Then what can I expect from 915?  Titleist is not offering any thing new.... (ok the channel is not new, Nike did it first).

According to the Titleist folks, the newbie 915 has higher MOI and less spin which equate to more distance and more forgiving ...  Wink

Totally agree. 
Not much diff in terms of performance btw 910 and 913 to me.
Probably it's me the golfer who cant squeeze extra distance out from the newer toy. This is why i stuck to 910 and didnt jump unto 913.
For 915, have to demo to know.
cheers

I have been fitted with a launch monitor and my current driver specs have already given an optimal distance.  Is is possible to squeeze more distance with newer drivers?

I am no expert lah Laughing  ... U better discuss with the Titleist experts ... Besides skill, head & shaft combo is of paramount importance in getting the desire distance ...

In a golfwrx post, the founder of Adams golf claims that maximum distance was achieved by the golf companies around 2005 as the limits imposed by the USGA had already been reached.....based on what he says, as long as you've been fitted properly and your swing hasn't changed increasing your swing speed, then the answer to your question is No......

Agreed, though probably one of the most depressing posts I've read ever.

Yes..unfortunately, I haven't changed despite knowing this too....I started out the year with the Cleveland CG Black, followed by TM SLDR, Callaway Big Bertha, went back to the Black, bought the Cobra Bio Cell (which is still for sale by the way - have to plug) and just got fitted for the first time on a Callaway Legacy Black.....

It's nice to know that we can dream and marketing does work Smile

Guys, just to share. I used a launch monitor (ES14) and tried the 915 and 913 on these settings in the range  :

Shaft - Tour ADBB6SR
Setting - A1

Average of 25 best shots

915D3                                     913D3
Club Speed :     97mph           92 mph
Ball Speed :     138mph          131 mph
Smash Factor:    1.42              1.42
Spin:               2913               2726
Launch :            14.2              14.05
Carry :              224M              214M
Best Carry :       238M              231M

The numbers showed me that my club head swing speed improved on the 915 thus equating to a better carry distance.  Though I can also get 224M on my 913 however I get better consistency with the 915.  I think a big factor is the improved forgiveness of the club. I hit a couple of shots on the toe with the 915 and it still gave me a relatively straighter shot than the 913. With that my confidence grew and allowed me to hit more aggressively.  

Disclaimer :This is in no way scientific, just a regular guy sharing my simple observation. But numbers don't lie. If you want to get your stats using my launch monitor, I am normally in OCC driving range Sunday mornings and Tuesday evenings. Just bring your own clubs Smile

Bro, great stats, thank you!

For the benefit of those who are keen, would you mind sharing your approx. handicap (so we know we have a benchmark) and the dispersion stats for both clubs (if you have them)?

Hi bro,

I am currently at 16.5 hcp.  My launch monitor does not have dispersion stats unfortunately.

Thanks. This is helpful. Personally, did you find that the 915 gave you better dispersion stats?

I kept hitting near the yellow flag at the end of the driving range . The hooks and slices are actually not that bad, ones that i will not ask for a mulligan on the course. Yes I think the dispersion is relatively better than my 913 such that the 915 does not go overly "wild" on me.

HI all, I have tried the Titleist 915 on Saturday. I am telling you it is the bomb! Its really a lot more forgiving as compared to the past titleist drivers and it actually gave me a lot more distance. I am truly impressive with this club. If you are a big fan of Titleist already, this club will make you fall in love with the brand even more. GO TRY IT NOW! MAI TU LIAO!

Awesome. I had the 913D2 which I sold in favor of the G25. This is interesting news and helpful Smile

I am getting excited after reading your post but I am happy with my 913D2 ... I guess for my case, the 915D2 can only squeeze in another few more meters and hence, not justifiable for me to splurge on another few hundreds more for the latest weapon ...
