Hi Tom, thanks for your detailed and wide answer, which shows me that you know your job and passion better than anyone else.
You are totally right. My driver has a shaft length which is compared to other driver at least 1.5 or 2 inch shorter. This gives me more accuracy but less length. Hope Covid-19 situation in Germany will allow me soon to visit Mike to get a fitting for a new 919 THI. I will let you know the results. Thanks and all the best

Hi Tom, I am interested in a new driver but still struggeling which one to choose. I have your clubs since 10 years, build and fitted from Mike McFadden and I am very happy with them. Mike is also my Pro since 10 years and he ist for me the best Pro I have ever had. My driver is your previous model before the 919 THI. I tried already some clubs, i.e. TM SIM, Ping G410, Titleist TSi3, TM M6. What they all had in common was that they were very consistent and forgiving and the carry distance was better… Read more »

Hi Tom, on the topic of shafts, I’ve been reading quite a bit recently on spining and flo’ing and thought there’s no one better to ask. I’ve got the 85g black shaft in my driver. Are you an advocate of flo’ing? There seems to be a bit of confliction regarding where the spine should be inserted into the head. Some say the 12 o clock position, others say it should point to the target and I’ve even seen a few say it should be set at 45°! Would really appreciate any info as I’m keen to do this through my… Read more »

Tom, thanks so much for your detailed response. Very much appreciated. I had my driver shaft shaft flo’d with a laser recently and it was installed in the 12’o clock position so I’ll obviously have to move it. Many thanks, Craig

Hi Tom

I have a 919-HL-13 driver with a Wishon Blue Stiff shaft built to a 44′ playing length.

The shaft has a 46′ raw length with a 23.75 balance point.

What does butt trimming the shaft to get to 44′ playing length do to the balance point?

Since the weight comes off the butt side of the shaft I am guessing that the balance point moves lower.

My reason for asking is that I plan on ordering your new driver when it comes to market but I may look at a different weight Wishon shaft.

Thank you for your insight with regards to shaft specs.

I will be sitting down with Rick McKinney in Woodstock, Ontario over the next few months to select the shaft options that will optimize my Wishon driver performance.

I just got the 919 driver this season and I love it! I was curious though to know if the black oxide comes in 9 degrees as well. I was told it was only available in 11 and 13. Here on the website it also says 9. I wanted the black oxide version but still like my driver.

No worries. I just got confused because it says here on the website the black version is available in 9 degrees. Just a typo I assume.

Tom: I want to give Kudos to Bill Wietzel.(from the greater Cincinnati area), who I have known for many years. I am now a very satisfied owner of the 919THI driver. Bill definitely has the passion for club fitting and his 20 plus years in the club fitting industry gave me confidence as we worked together to find the best solution for a new Driver. I am 60 years old and play to a 3 handicap and when I completed the driver fitting I knew exactly why this club selection was the correct choice for me. He is dedicated to… Read more »

Tom, Been a fan of yours since the mid 90’s, back in the Golfsmith days. Congratulations on semi retirement but we sure miss Wishon Golf being here in the states (although Diamond is great to carry on the legacy). The 919 THI is a very nice driver head design, great traditional look, and the bendable hosel is a fantastic design, definitely the best hosel design in the industry. The only thing I don’t like about it is the sound, but that’s strictly a personal thing. The rumor is you’re working on a new driver design. If so I’d like to… Read more »

Has someone else in the desert started doing fitting with wishon,,have your 919tii 3 driving wood and 5 wood 870 irons have loved them might be time to get some different shafts I am willing to spend the money to try. But will need a fitter.

Hi Don,
I’m 75 and believe me your SS is probably nearer 70. I’m using the Blue shaft in A flex and am very happy with flight and distance.

Hi Tom ,

I have had a full set of Wishon clubs for c 10 years and they are brilliant . I love the 919 driver which was really well fitted by Richard Kempton from Kent . A couple of friends are very interested in getting the driver but have been saying that the 919 has been around a long time and surely driver technology has moved on a lot in 10 years so shouldn’t they buy one of the major brands eg Taylormade . How should I respond ?

thank you ,
Peter

Hi, I am researching drivers and have settled on your 919. I have a swing of 95 give or take a couple. Will the S2S White shaft at 44″ handle this speed. It is an average load swing.

Hey Tom, just wondering what the lowest and highest lie angles are that I could get the 919THI driver to bend to.? Is it possible to find a driver that can have a lie angle bent to say around 50*? Thanks for your time!

Tom, thanks for the response. Are you aware of any driver that could have such a flat lie angle? Maybe manufactured with a low lie angle initially? Thanks again!

Hello Tom, I have a 919 THI (8.5 degree hand picked by you for Charlie Sampson) and I wanted to know if you make a shaft recommendation for me. My go to driver that has been perfect is a Ping i20 with a Ping TFC 707 D true x-stiff shaft. I first tried a Tour AD DI-7 matched up to the TFC and the flight was too low although the shaft didn’t feel boardy or harsh at impact. I then put the same shaft I have had great success with in all of my Sonartec 3 woods and Miura hybrids,… Read more »

Tom I have a 460 949 Driver, a 525 Driver, and one of your original 919 Drivers which I gave my son. I am struggling driving the ball after a couple of years away from the game. Would their be any considerable advantage to getting a 919 THI closer to my specs vs the 949 and the 525 I already play sometimes? I got a head from Maltby and can kill it, but it is constantly open and I hit it all over the course! Thanks for the help in advance!!

Hi Tom

I’ve had a complete set (forged cavity back irons and 919 fairways and driver) that I had made maybe 7 years ago. My old 919 driver broke at the hosel yesterday (cracked where the hosel meets the head). How do the current 919 heads compare to the one I had? I know you can’t answer but do you think the shaft could be reused and just a new head expoxyd on? I had the whole set matched and I’d love it if the club felt the same as the old ones.

Hello Tom I’ve followed you from afar for some years now ever since I saw ‘so you think you play the same clubs as the pros” Your ideas for the club or recreational golfer are so great in helping people understand what they are striving for but follow the wrong path quite often in trying to achieve it, so good on you for educating us. My old mate Bobby hit his 5 wood further and straighter than his driver I had to send him links from your guides as to why, I tried and finally gained a Cobra ladies head… Read more »

Hello Tom,

I am not new to golf but I do not play often maybe a couple rounds a year. My 16yr old son is pretty good for being a recreational player. HE has taken an interest and we are making plans to play. Should we both get fitted for a driver or is that overkill? I have always struggled off the tee.

Tom, I have your hybrid, e wood and 4 wood and you mentioned sand blasting the face in f the driver. Could I do the same with the hybrid? It doesn’t seem to spin enough either. Also, could I sand it with paper instead of sandblasting?

Tom, I had another question about the driver. I have a 919 but I am finding that i am such a low spinner of the golf ball that my off center hits tend to knuckleball out of the air and hook like crazy. i own a GC2 with HMT and know my numbers very well. i am finding that at 110mph club speed that if i miss the center by as little as 1/2″ toward the toe that even with a slightly open face to path relationship, i hit these 1400 and less rpm spin balls that hook off the… Read more »

I wasn’t sure my last response posted. Here are two typical drives

Aoa. 7.1 up
Path. 3.2 in to out
Face to path .5 closed
Dyn loft. 16.2
Launch 14.8
Spin 1374
Side spin 661
Start line .7 left
Hooked 47 yards
Carried 259
27 degree decent angle

The one above is my nemesis

Shot 2

7.1 AOA
3.1 path
3 face
19.9 DL
18.8 launch
4.8 start line
1588 spin
192 side spin
Finished 10yds right slight draw
Carried 270
39 degree decent angle

One ends up perfect and one hooks off the planet and neither have any spin

I don’t know the actual driver loft other than it is stated at 9. (Taylormade aeroburner) My impact positions are very similar in look to Dustin Johnson and the club head is “not” passing my hands. Flipping it is not one of my issues LOL :). However, i do hit up on the ball trying to gain carry distance. My launch monitor is a Foresight GC2 with HMT. i am a 4 handicap and my driver swing speed is 108. The dynamic loft number i gave you for both swings is measured by the GC2 and should be the actual… Read more »
