I just got my replacement (Kevlar Green) shaft delivered on Friday and was able to hit with it for the first time this morning.

 

All I'll say for now is, it's a MUCH better fit for me!! ;)

Yeah!

Tour Exotics 3 wood is in the bag because we are allowed 14 clubs.  It's a great club for pulling balls out of the water or from bushes - you never want to put your hand into anything in Florida unless you are absolutely certain that it's safe.  There are rare wind conditions when I might hit it off the tee on a few holes that I play.

I'm assuming most of us are waiting on more data and will put it in the reviews.  Personally I have a dilemma...Just got a Titleist 915D3 and now I'm debating if I continue testing with the SLDR or pick up a Titleist tip and start testing with that.  I'm leaning towards taking out the SLDR heads and having a shoot out.

Same problem here hckymeyer. I just got an 8* Sldr that I'm wanting to try out but I'm going to try and hold off until either I'm done testing or I will only hit that driver on days where I don't swing my current gamer.

I played two rounds this past weekend and had to use the 915, it was the shiniest tool in the shed so to speak.  I really liked the way it set up and hit some very nice drives.  I don't feel like it was any longer than my SLDR though. 

 

Hoping to get out Friday again and I plan on taking both SLDR's with me.  I have a 9 (set to 10) and 10.5 (set to 11).  Diamana in one and Paderson in the other.  I'll hit both drivers on every tee and then swap shaft/heads at the turn and see what happens.

Seems like you have it figured out man. All I can comment on so far is feel. I love the feel of this shaft. Haven't gotten enough time with it yet to say more.

I still have more testing to do, but so far the Paderson is continuing to impress me, particularly with the feel and consistency.

I get my baby back from my club guy today. He just got back from Traverse City so it's been sitting in his house after he put the adaptor back on with 24 hr epoxy. Headed STRAIGHT to the range after work.

I'm liking the irons, loving hybrid and FW but not overly impressed with either driver shaft so far. No trackman data yet, but suspect I'm losing a few yards. Swing Caddie tells me my swing speed is up with the heavier shaft, but it just seems like it's losing energy at impact.

Swing caddie isn't the most reliable machine with a driver. Irons and wedges it works great. I am ordering the heavier NI driver shaft soon. I believe this will be the best shaft for me with a faster swing. Thinking it will help tempo and increase fairways hit. The most accurate of shafts as well as one of the longest was around 92 grams. I'll know if this is the same for me soon

Loving the hybrid shaft so far. That may be a product of having it shorter where I don't struggle to hit it. But the data I'm getting says its at least as good as the Fuji I had in it at a longer length. Hope to get on the range to see some actual ball flight soon
