Hey everyone!

I recently got a 7 wood that came with a Tour AD GP shaft but unfortunately the shaft is all sorts of messed up from the previous owner. I ended up grabbing a Tensei White Raw AV 85 TX shaft instead. I was looking at the specs off Mitsubishis website and noticed the only difference between the 85 X and TX is 0.1 torque. Im curious is there really any difference between the X/TX? Here are some numbers from the simulator today. The 85 TX is on my 7 wood (21) and my 4 wood has the same shaft but in 75X. Based off this small sample size do you think I can get away with using a TX in the 7 wood? Thanks!

totally.  I have AV Raw White in X and TX flexes in both 75 and 85 G weights.  FWIW, I am a scratch golfer and I find the two shafts virtually indistinguishable from one another.  Enjoy the TX and don't let the label bother you 🙂

and just to close the loop on your question, using this in a 7 wood should be no problem.  Is there a particular concern you have over the shaft?

For a minute there I thought it was too stiff for me even though its not that typical block fade you'd see if the shaft was too stiff haha. I think youre right though, the TX is really tripping me up. It makes me feel I am not worthy to use that shaft HAHAHAHA! Most of my shots with the 7 wood with the 85TX have a tendency to draw/hook. The shop I bought it from told me its tipped 2 inches that's what got me worried it might be too stiff haha. I appreciate your feedback!
