    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.
