Hey everyone, we’ve also took some time to review the D3 driver, and compare it to the D2.  In a nutshell, the D3 is for better quality players who prefer the ability to work the ball over some added forgiveness.  Our independent reviewer struggled a bit with the shafts on this review, as they tended to produce to low of a ball flight overall than the D2.  The driver itself is designed this way, so better players looking to get more height on their tee-shots may want to steer clear of the D3, or get a shaft combo with a really low kick point.  Enjoy the review below!

913d3-titleistLook

The 445 cc club head of the Titleist 913 D3 driver should appeal to the player that prefers a slightly smaller club head.  In addition, the traditional pear shape is visually appealing.  Similar to the 913 D2, the glossy black finish looks great at address.  The 913 D3 has a similar design as the 910 D3, however, you will notice a few glaring differences on the sole.  The rear weight is bigger, the sole plate is all black and the trim of the 913 is silver and red.  Similar to the 910 D3, Titleist continues with their SureFit technology which allows you to alter the lie and loft.  Golfers can also control the weight and shot trajectory by altering the removable weight in the back of the club head.

Feel

The Titleist 913 D3 is relatively forgiving and easy to hit.  Similar to the Titleist 913 D2, the D3 produces the same feel, crisp contact and muted sound at impact.  Off center hits still feel solid with very little unwanted vibrations.  Adjust the swing weight for your personal preference with the SureFit interchangeable weights.

Performance

I tested the Titleist 913 D3 in a 9.5 degree loft with a stiff Aldila α Rip 60 stock shaft.  All shots were hit in the A-1 SureFit position and standard rear weight.  The Aldila α Rip 60 features a 63 gram shaft and 2.9 degrees of torque designed to produce a low to mid ball flight.  The D3 is designed for the player who prefers the ability to work the ball.  Overall, the D3 is perfect for the player who wants a lower ball flight.  Most shots with the D3 club head produced a low or mid trajectory.

The Aldila α Rip 60 produced a mid ball flight with the 913 D3 driver head.  In addition, the workability in the D3 is apparent.  The 913 D3 does not offer the forgiveness of the D2.  It is much easier to spray the ball left or right.  Many of the misses with the D3 were low and left with a right to left ball flight.  Personally, I found the D2 produced a higher trajectory, more forgiving and longer than the D3.  However, some will enjoy the ability to work the ball and prefer the D3.

Titleist 913 D3 Review with Other Stock Shafts

All stock shafts were tested with a stiff shaft and a Titleist 913 D3 driver in the standard A-1 SureFit position.  The D3 was tested with the standard rear weight.  The Titleist Bassara W 40 and Bassara W 50 are not listed as an available stock shaft in the Titleist 913 D3 driver.

Aldila RIP Phenom 70

rip-phenom-shaft

The Aldila RIP Phenom weighs 74 grams with 3.2 degrees of torque.  The Aldila RIP Phenom 70 stock shaft is designed to produce low to mid ball flight. Combined with the 913 D3 club head, ball flight was extremely low but stayed mostly straight.  However, the Aldila RIP Phenom 70 shaft felt like there was no kick at impact.  Carry distance was poor but at least the ball stayed in the short grass.  Similar to the 913 D2, the D3 with the Aldila RIP Phenom 70 is not a great match for my swing characteristics.

Diamana S+ Blue 62

diamana-shaft

The Diamana S+ Blue 62 is 64 grams with a 4.5 degree torque.  The Diamana Blue is designed to deliver a mid ball flight.  Testing the 913 D3 with the Diamana Blue resulted in a low to mid ball flight.  Similar to the Aldila RIP Phenom, the majority of shots were straight.  However, the Diamana Blue produced better distance than the Aldila RIP Phenom.

Diamana D+ White 72

diamana-white

The Diamana D+ White 72 shaft features a 74 gram shaft with 3.3 degree torque.  The Diamana D+ White 72 is designed to produce a low ball flight.  Consequently, most shots were a low to mid trajectory.  Personally, I struggled with consistency with the Diamana D+ White 72 combination.  Again, misses were left and low while good shots were straight with a low or mid ball flight.  Carry distance was average with the Diamana D+ White 72 stock shaft.

Value

The Titleist 913 D3 offers a smaller club head design and great look at address.  In addition, the 913 D3 allows the ability to work the ball.  The Titleist 913 D3 is ideal for players that struggle with a high launch and ball flight.  The D3 only offers 4 stock shafts but should be easy to find the best match for your swing.  The Titleist 913 D3 retails for $399.99.

    Even if you’re not feeling like trailing around crowded shops or live
    to far away from the stores, you can easily browse the deals
    in the virtual shopping mall in the privacy of your own home until you
    find what you’re looking for. We seem to be living in a time in which
    the interest in alternative types of health care and healing modalities is
    at an all-time high. As a result of the effects of the far infrared saunas’ rays on your body, the manufacturers
    claim that you can receive the following health benefits by using their far
    infrared saunas:.
