what sort of feedback are you looking for?

It would be a nice combination if it is a good fit for you. A smooth loading shaft that GD market as the impossible high launch, low spin combination. I've played one in my 3 wood for most of the year but recently swapped it out as I didn't like the "soft" feel it has. I prefer a more boardy feel.

I couldn't tell you how it would perform in a 650 but if you haven't used one before, they definitely play soft to flex in my opinion. Are they worth the money? Only you can answer that. My opinion is that there are shafts that feel and play the same way for much more friendly price point.

Probably not the information you wanted but hey :)

I appreciate your insight. I've been playing  a tour ad di in a Callaway 3 deep for about a month now and can't get over how smooth the feel is. Seems to fit my swing perfectly. I was playing a motore F1 shaft in my covert tour driver and a whiteboard 73x in my 910 before that. I think I'm really enjoying the soft feel. Anyway I picked up a mp650 driver and was considering swapping out the shaft...I'm very impressed with the mizuno head. (my first mizuno driver) Was considering  a 5 wood and 22 hybrid to match. Just curious to see if anyone was gaming the tour ad di shafts and could compare them to the factory ones

put a DI in your 650 and come back and tell us how it went :)

If you have the stock Orochi shaft in the 650, I remember the Mizuno R&D guys talking about how they designed it with Fujikura to have a similar bend profile to the old blueboard, which is an all time classic. I think you might be surprised by the performance of the Orochi shaft if you give it some time.
