Had a really enjoyable fitting today with Titleist product specialist Darren who as it happens is the ex PGA Professional at my home club. I had in the last few weeks taken both the TS2 and TS3 out on the course for a few rounds and had an idea which I was getting on better with wanted the knowledge and guidance of a fitter to give me the once over.
Hit my own 917D2 with Aldila Rogue 70g shaft fairly well I thought.......until we started hitting all other combinations of TS configurations...........
In the end the spec' I ended up with was a TS2 head 8.5 degree loft with a HZRDUS SMOKE 6.0 A1 setting...
I actually hit the TS3 a bit further but dispersion wise it was the TS2 that worked better for me and minimized my left going left shot....
Gains over 917 were approx' +4 or 5 mph ball speed and approx' 12 or 13 yards carry.
I placed my order right there on the spot and now may wait :)

Seem to think it was only a matter of time before this came to pass!!
I've got the TS3 in the 8.5 & HZRDUS set at B4 (ie Flat lie, for the vertically challenged) and while it's misbehaving at the minute, (I strongly suspect it might be down to pilot error) I love the set-up and am convinced it's just a matter of time...
Bet you can't wait - Probably be about a week...
Enjoy it when it arrives.

I'm in the same boat - tried theTS2 fairway (bit easier off the deck) again in the HZRDUS and absolutely loved it.
Will have to get a proper fitting but can't see any other outcome than my 3 iron finding a new home leaning on the garage wall and the fairway joining me on the course! After all said and done, Startrek had it right, Resistance is Futile.

TS3 I was fitted for, on order also. May get Luke to see if he can find out a delivery date.

A new Phantom I'll bet - Which one did plump for... sorry, I meant to say which one did you scientifically determine met you specific requirements?
PS I can see me going down the same Scotty Cameron road in time - Currently using an M2 Newport Select but hanker after a slightly softer and more mallet-y instrument.
