Driver shaft

I was fit for a TSi3 driver with a tensei blue 65g stiff shaft. I ended up purchasing the driver but instead of tensei blue it has a tensei white 65g stiff shaft. 
Do you think there will be any major or noticeable differences?

 Unfortunately with the recent weather I haven’t been able to try it out on the range yet

wow, they send you the wrong shaft?  White is supposed to be stiffer tip and low launch.   It's not the same shaft at all.   I assume you were fitted with Tensei blue because you were hitting it well.   I would personally take it back.

No they didn’t send the wrong one. I found this on eBay and wasn’t having any luck finding one with tensei blue. Purchased the tensei white thinking I could always get the blue shaft instead.

Some people aren't as sensitive to shaft feels, but for me the white felt like rebar when I was fit for my tsi3

You bought a shaft that has a different from the one you were fit for and more than likely will notice a difference in feel and as a result it could affect your performance.

The white has a stiffer tip which will drop both launch and ssome amount compared to the blue and is designed typically for the stronger high swing speed golfers looking to lower flight and spin.

For some it might not affect performance where others it will be a bad setup. It will take you hitting it to know if it works or not.

Hit it for a week or two and if it works, great.  If not, find the blue model and sell the white one; it should be a wash.

I question why bother with the fitting if you buy something completely different, was the fitting free and from a mate ??

Fitting is great even if you don’t end up purchasing exactly what was recommended. I’ve found that any good fitter will recommend other options based on budget. You should be able to have access to your data though so you could always find someone with a launch monitor and hit the other club and compare directly.

I play Ventus Velocore Black 6X in PXG driver and Ventus Velocore Blue 7X in Sim 2 Ti 3 Wood. Absolutely love the Ventus Velocore shafts.
