Hahaha well glad you were able to scratch that itch. Currently sitting in the worst ice storm in OK history with no power. The TSi has been on my mind constantly...just want to see if I can replicate what happened on that fine day!

Oh man, that's awfully early for a storm like that and the worst in history none the less.  That just means you're due for an unsual warm up in about two weeks 🙂

Weather here is unusually cold as well, gonna have to order a heater for the golf cart because idc if they’re calling for snow.. I’m still hitting this thing day 1. If I know Missouri weather though, I’m sure it’ll be sunny and 70 in November.

Brutal that an ice storm is already hitting @HeathS16! Hope that melts quickly...

As usual, no weather issues here, but I'm taking a pre-emptive weekend off from golf this week to spend extra time with the family and ensure I am able to play each weekend for the rest of November (and maybe a bonus Thanksgiving round) with the new boom stick once it arrives (likely) next week.

Being a weather forecaster in San diego must be one of the most boring jobs in the world.  I lived there for 8 years (Point Loma and La Jolla) and can still recite the forecast by heart.  "The high tomorrow will be 72 degrees, with a slight off shore breeze.  The coastal marine layer will burn off around 10:00.  Sunset will be at....  Tune in tomorrow for the same report."  

 

Except for June, of course.  I can't say I miss the June Gloom.

Weather was unseasonably cold in the Seattle area last week, but back up to normal now. Mid 50s, perfect golf weather 😃

Luckily we are back into the 60s by the weekend but before then we are in for almost 2 inches of ice 🙂 Find by me, Ill doze by the fire and dream sweet TSi dreams.

Hope this ice storm stays south of you! 70 sounds super nice.

That sounds like a good plan. I've just pre-conditioned the wife that I will need plenty of time to get to know the new stick so that will mean more rounds this fall 🙂

The TSi series looks great in person. At my fitting, i didn't get to mess around and take too much time observing the head and face, there is a Covid rule for the fitting about not touching anywhere except the grip.

That's a great plan, score the points early to be redeemed when it counts!

I have 3-4 of those, great hats cold weather. Fortunately have only needed them a few times in last 9 years.

While we wait, wanted to give some thoughts on the shaft that I was fitted into: Graphite Design AD-XC 6S.

Here is how Graphite Design classifies the profile and launch/spin characteristics:

image.png.6404bcc452658fac5182f7b2e6cab1b3.png
Source: https://proschoicegolfshafts.com/tour-ad-xc-shafts/ 

I don't claim to be a shaft expert, but typically when i think about a low/low shaft, I think of a super stiff, stout shaft. I think the first thing to look at is, what does Graphite Design consider a low/mid launch shaft. If we look at the S3/Cool Clubs data, we can see what "Cool Clubs" defines as a mid-launch shaft. Based on this graph, it seems like the AD XC-6 S is just about as close to a mid-launch shaft as possible.

S3_launch_ADXC.png
Source: https://mygolfspy.com/shaft-review-graphite-design-tour-ad-xc/

Looking at torque, the shaft is what would be considered low torque. Advertised torque is 3.2, but measured torque from multiple sources is around 2.9.

Based on looking at the different elements of the shaft profile, the shaft should be stable but smooth. Based on the fitting, that is how the shaft felt to me, but definitely need to spend more time with it before i fully come to that conclusion. Based on Pluggedingolf's review, they came to a similar conclusion: " it’s very stable.  However, the butt section of the Tour AD XC has a very strong kick."

This was the shaft I was most intrigued by going into my fitting. I had hit the DI and IZ before, as well as Ventus & Tensei (though not the raw version) & HZRDUS (but not the new RDX version).

I found the kick to be super strong, and as a result the "feel" was awesome, but it didn't translate to results as my left misses came back with a vengence. Two caveats though - this was the last one I tried so fatigue may have been a factor. They also only had the 6x in stock, not the 7x that the fitter would have had me try if he thought that shaft was the one (he thought it was too soft up in the grip section anyway).

It may have worked well for me because i have mostly a right miss. the XC-6S combined with TSi 2 definitely kept my right-side miss in control. My good swings resulted in a nice baby fade. My bad swings with the TSi 2 and XC-6S resulted in much better shots than my SIM Max/Ventus Red combo. I could still miss slightly right with the TSi 2/XC-6S, but not off the planet right.

Thanks for everyone that participated in the mini-contest of guessing which shaft that I would get fitted in. The closest guess was from @Lacassem. He guessed right shaft brand, weight class, and flex, but was just off on the model. Please PM me your address, have a small prize to send.

Love it.

just winging this one and going with the AD DI. Seems like you’re looking for a little higher launch and little more roll. Not knowing what your tempo or swing speed is this is my best guess with a stiffer tip and a softer middle.
