I tested the ts 2 and 3 with this shaft. Didn’t like it in the 3 but with the 2 everything was straight and distance was good. I wish the fitting cart had the 65 gram to try in S. The x in the White is too low launch and spin for my swing even with the TS2

I am currently trying out this shaft in my TS4 driver as well, not sure on my thoughts yet about it. I love the sound and feel of the TS4 compared to the 3. Really need to get to a place with a trackman to compare numbers.

 

I bought the TS4 driver from a buddy and it had a Fujikura Atmos tour spec 7x black shaft in it, hit it for a little while and really don't like that shaft to much

This has been one of the best forums/chats I have found yet regarding the Rip Tide, so thank you all.  Trying out two drivers still, and just put a Titleist tip on the Rip Tide black tonight to hopefu

I have the evenflow black in a G400 LST I bought over the winter. Had no idea what it would look like when I went to the course. The driver is a very hot and cold part of my game, and mostly, it was c

Everything I’ve read about the Riptide says that it has the feel of the blue and the stability of the black rolled into one. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

I didn’t like the sound of the ts3 either or the shape. Ef white and ts4 sounds like that would be a low spin monster and would be bombs away for some golfers. Based on my experience with lower spin heads that combo wouldn’t fit me as much as I would like it too. Curious to see what your results are with it

I’m using the evenflow riptide 5.5 r 50g in my mavrik max driver. Got fit into it and have been very happy with it. I’m just starting to understand the impact the shaft has on the club performance so I can’t offer much other than i tired 6 drivers and settled on the max and tried the 3 riptide weights 50,60,70 and got the most distance and accuracy from the 50

I will let you know what the results are once I had some more time on the range with it and hopefully find somewhere with a trackman to compare numbers.

Ive got the stock 55g in my Atomic driver and the stock 65g in my Atomic 5w.  I like them both.  I like that I can feel the shaft loading and unloading and can tell when Im swinging the club well and when Im not.

I think that I like the 65g a bit better because Im kind of in the high end of the regular flex range and its considered to be a, "regular+", almost like some of the old uniflex iron shafts were.  I do like the 55g in the driver but sometimes I feel that Id like if it were just a bit stiffer.

Ive havent always been a big fan of PX shafts in the irons that Ive had them in.  I always found them to be a bit too stiff but I do like the ones in my TA woods.

PX designed the evenflow with feel in mind. Hzrdus line was designed around performance and feel wasn’t considered in the design. The approach with even flow was to keep the performance aspect but make sure the shaft would have a good feeling.

Maybe that explains the problem I'm having with the TS3. I have the HZRDUS Smoke . To me, it was close to what I'm used to playing.... Aldila RIP 60 and Aldila RIP Phenom. Both of those shafts have considerable more feel  than the Smoke, with the RIP 60 maybe a tad more boardy. The Smoke seems a lot more boardy to me. Other than that, I like the trajectory and ball flight. I think I just need to get used to how it feels.

The smoke is still built on the same profile as the original hzrdus shafts, px softened them up but in my limited swings with the other than green they have similar feels to me. Once golf opens up I’ll get some swing with the green but I’m not a fan of hzrdus line but despite that the yellow works for my swing and it’s been in and out of my bag on and off since it game out

I have been looking at the hzrdus green and wanting to try that one out as well as the hzrdus black.

once you get some swings in with the hzrdus green let me know what you think of it.

From my reading the green is a smoother black but still stout. The hulk version is a different beast all together. The design of the green was based on the hulk popularity and they softened it up fo the mere mortals, but as a someone who hated the telephone pole feel of the black I’m curious to hit the green.

I would like to find a gently used 70, 6.5X or TX. 

The tx is the hulk and different profile from the 6.5.

This has been one of the best forums/chats I have found yet regarding the Rip Tide, so thank you all.  Trying out two drivers still, and just put a Titleist tip on the Rip Tide black tonight to hopefully try in the TS3 tomorrow.  The other combo I am trying is Cobra F9 with the Smoke Yellow with the heavy Ricki Fowler weights.  I have tried both combos with the Tensei Blue, and while they feel good, spin is still really high.

Part of it is likely delivery, as I am less up in my strike then I would like, but hoping these offer lower spin options for me.

If strike is the same on both my money is on the f9 and smoke yellow being lower spin than the TS3 and riptide... let us know though! I’m curious how you think they both feel.

I went with a 65g 6.5 Black at 45.5”. Took it out yesterday and I liked the consistency. I play a STD+ non taper grip so I can choke up a smidge if I want to play at 45”.  It is a smoother feeling, slightly less penetrating option than my HZRDUS Yellow with excellent carry.

Spin and ball speed were better on the TS3 with the RipTide...BUT, direction was tougher to get consistent results.  This is likely because it was a 10.5 degree, turned down to 9.75.  That means, but Titleist standards, it was pretty open.  So like the junkie-fiend gear person I am I sold the TS3 10.5 and got an 8.5 on the way (not to mention made $50 on the deal, and the new comes with a Project X HZRDUS Black Handcrafted.  The plan is to turn the 8.5 up to close the face down a bit, and see what happens.  I will keep you in the loop!

I’m playing the Even flow 6.0 stiff 75 gram in my Ping G410 plus: I’ve posted a couple times about my experience so far after about 10 rounds... Long story short I’m a fan of this shaft!


Edit: I’m no longer a fan of this shaft: it’s 100% my fault for buying a driver when I’m not in “golf form” but my swing speed is just too much for it anymore, and I’m basically trying to time the face on every swing. And if I could do that successfully, I’d be a much better player!

I just ordered a new Driver & 3W with the White.  The combination of the TS4 and the EF White @ 85 grams was incredible - knocked 1000 RPM off my current setup. Only needed a 6.0 since the shaft is heavier and the tip stiffer than most. Specs below (but driver will actually be 0.5" short):
