Bought a 913D2 driver off ebay, took it out last Sunday and found I was slicing it nearly every drive. Got me really puzzled so I borrowed my mate's 913 head and compare them on the same shaft, I was hitting my mate's straight nearly every time but the eBay version was prone to fade or slice.

 

A bit further investigation on the club head shows it has a 9 digit serial number with a T on the 6th character, which I read on Titleist website is suppose to be a tour model. I also weighted the head and it comes in at 188grams vs my mate's 196grams.

 

I sent the head to Titleist prior to my round and they hadn't indicated that it's a forgery.

 

Any idea what might be going on that's causing the slice other than my swing?

I have a D2 also.
Have you checked what setting it is on?
The D2 is weighted to draw over the D3.
I have mine on setting C1

Sounds like a tour head brotha & most (not all) tour heads generally sit open at address & it may have hot melt inside the head towards the toe which could cause it to cut/slice

Set it to the biggest draw option it has and see how it goes.

Two things

 

1 a placebo effect and you are probably manipulating the swing to the head.

 

2 the difference in weight is 2 swing weights so this could effect the feel of the head, lighter club subconsciously swing faster.

 

fix by putting 12 grams of lead tape on head and see what happens.

Seems like the tour had doesn't suit you. Easy fix. Buy the non tour version. Thank you for coming

Didn't even know it was a tour head until after I got it. Another range session tonight is in order. Going to pick up some lead tape during lunch and bring my wrench along to try as many options as I can. If all fails, it's going back to the bay.

You can get a different weight for the port on the bottom of the head that will make it heavier without having to resort to ugly lead tape.
