    Currently gaming my 917 with the pro 74 shaft at 44” and liking this length. How would a TS perform at this length or 44.5” with the Hzrdous Smoke 6.0 as looking at the profiles this is the closest of the stock shafts. Just looking for thoughts as currently I can’t get to a fitting?

    While I philosophically believe there is benefit to a shorter shaft, the guys at TPI convinced me that with the TS I could do better moving from a stock 45 inch 917 to a stock 45.5 inch TS. I didn't lose accuracy with either dispersion or where I was striking on the club face. It would be worth to keep your 917 gamer and waiting until you can get to a fitting to determine the best shaft and length for you. Using my 917 shaft in a TS didn't result in much change. Both the length and technology of the shaft selected contributed substantially to the 4 mph increase in ball speed.

    I'm also keeping my 917 D2 w/ standard 45 " shaft. Very confident with accuracy, distance, and ball flight.

    According to Titleist their +6g Weight Screw will bring you back to the TS standard swing weight at 44" inch and at 44.5" their +4g Weight Screw would be required.

    I went from a 915d3 44,5 speeder757 evo iii to TS3 with stock smoke 6.0 at 45,5 and happy with this setup.
    I was fitted for the TS3 by Titleist and this is the way to go.
    Try it before buy it,!

    Depends on where you are comfortable with swing weight, I have 3 shafts for my TS3, two at 45 and the stock Smoke at 45.5. With the stock weight at 12 grams, I had 6 grams of hotmelt added to the head to bring SW to D4 on my 45 shafts. When I use the 45.5 Smoke, I just remove the factory 12 gram weight and put the 8 gram weight in, works perfectly!
