  1. Having recently come from a Warbird 3w with stock Graphalloy shaft to my current G400 SFT with Alta CB shaft, it's been a very positive shift in hit-ability and accuracy. My only complaint with the current club is distance which is producing 185-195 carry and generally not any roll. I've had a good many holes that need that carry to be 10-20 yards longer to avoid front ball catching aprons or clear water. The added distance from the new KBD TD driver shaft will help this a little, but I still feel like I'm not getting enough out of my mini-boom stick...but maybe I am?? Unfortunately at my recent TS fitting, we could not test my G400 with the Diamana Thump 65R shaft that produced best results with the TSi2 3w (15*). That was yielding about 10 yards additional carry. Yea, I know, "go buy the TSi and that shaft and call it a day", but I'm not ready to jump there yet. First, I'm not so sure my G400 with an upgraded shaft won't get me there, second, that's a hefty price, and finally, there are so many other 3w make/models to consider. I've not messed with the G400's loft setting, and only played it at nominal 16*. It can be adjusted to 15*. I see that a number of mfg.'s are offering much lower lofted 3w's (13*) and larger volume heads. While I do use my 3w off the tee, my primary use is fairway. The G400 was available in the "Stretch" version and a nominal 13* that can be changed to 14*. But is reducing loft the best direction? Many argue (like drivers) that based on swing speed and AoA, more distance can be gained by playing a higher loft and getting more ball height. My fitting data had my current 3w ball height at 77 ft. and the TSi/Thump at 79 ft. Anyone been in the same boat; looking for some additional 3 wood distance? What did you test and what did you end up with?
