I’m thinking of replacing my TU’s. Anyone have any opinion about the DBM vs the TE’s?
You’re probably getting tired of reading my responses, but since you said you like the softer feel of the R300 in the long irons, you might want to look into the DG Pro shafts. They’re designed to help launch the ball higher in the long irons. (They’re taper tip, so in the MMB-17 you’d need the taper tip shim.) Here’s the link with a video about them – http://www.golfworks.com/true-temper-dg-pro-steel-shafts/c/10685/
More info…better decisions!
Pierre, Score LT is a good shaft but is not for you, imho. With the distance you’re getting, I’d suggest True Temper Dynamic Gold S400 or X100. They aren’t new and fancy but they’ve been great performers for decades and you’ll see them, or the Tour Issue DG, in the bags of most great ball-strikers.
One more thought about clubheads: have you considered the MMB-17? Probably the best looking blade around. Built a set for my son and he loves them! I think Britt has plans for a new forged blade for next year. Looking forward to learning more about that.
Hello, Pierre, you probably already know that the club head design is virtually identical. I play the TE forged and love them, and I have customers playing the DBM and love them. (I think Britt Lindsey plays the DBM.) You can’t go wrong either way. The DBM head looks smaller and of course is dark. TE is easier to bend for loft/lie, although I have had no difficulty bending the DBM for my customers. They are also more “forgiving” on mis-hits. My only slight concern is for those who already have high launching shots. The vertical CG is the lowest among the Maltby heads. I even use the lowest launching shaft on the market (TTDGSL) and still launch it a little high, but I can live with that!
I’m sure Britt will have some great insights to add. Hope this helps.
