    I've been using my 910 D3 since they came out, one of my favourite clubs over the years, the last month or so it seems very flat and losing 30/40 yards to my normal distance, there are no rattles or signs of cracks but it does sound different when hitting a ball, I first thought it was me and my swing or the wet conditions etc, the pro at my club tried it on the simulator this morning and thought it didn't feel quite right, so is there a shelf life for drivers and do they naturally deteriorate over time, (I know it's getting on for 8/9 years old) or am I just looking for an excuse to go for the new TS2/3 in which case I'll have to look for a fitting, any advise gratefully received

  2. I do not have any idea about the life span of a golf club. There's a lot of newer technology available since the release of your current driver. I believe once you lose confidence in a club's performance it time to move on. I think it may be time to take the plunge to new model. However, you must be the one to make that decision. Good Luck!

    Like they say, all good things must come to an end... I've heard from a lot of players that the 910 was one of the best drivers they've owned.

    I'm not sure what the shelf life is, that's a good question. But I would go to a TS fitting and compare it to the 910. Curious how many yards you'll gain :)

    IMO, I think the TS is their best yet, by far. And I say that b/c i'm a nut job with drivers constantly trying new ones.. Not anymore though, I found the on..

    Sure sounds like a crack. could be there and just too hard to see. There should not be any significant deterioration in the performance, only deterioration in the performer... and increased performance in newer equipment. Part of the reason I change is i know "father time" is taking away swing speed from me each year. If i can slow that by adjusting shaft flex, better club weighting, etc. then i can extend my pleasure on the golf course a few more years. Sounds like its time to park the 910 and take a look at an upgrade. Love my TS3.

    You could try some impact tape, Dr Scholls, or some masking tape to make sure you're hitting the center, but if you go for a fitting, you'll REALLY know for sure what you should do!

    Sounds like a good enough reason to try something new to me!

    Best of luck!

    If the sound changed, there is a crack somewhere. Metal fatigue short of a crack is nothing I'd expect of a titanium drive to impact distance. You can declare it a hidden crack and go for it. You can check the Titleist-UK site for fitters. I know the Celtic Manor uses Titleist clubs for rentals, likely they do fittings as well.

    I loved the 910 and still hit it at times. Of course with my swing speed I don't worry about collapsing the club face.
