Recently fitted for hard to find shaft

7 posts in this topic

I am new to the sand-trap and have had no luck in finding a similar posting. I recently started playing NCAA golf and was fitted for a new driver shaft. The specs I need are extra stiff, 70 grams or more, mid to high kickpoint, std. length. I am having trouble finding anything online and was wondering if anyone here has similar needs or a suggestion on what direction to go. Thanks!

What shaft did you swing during your fitting?  Ultimately this is the shaft you are looking for.  What you have listed here are more like boundary conditions, but no two shafts are exactly the same. Therefore picking a shaft within your conditions doesn't necessarily mean you are fit for that shaft.

My swing was evaluated using the stock shaft in my driver. We aren't looking to replace the entire club, just the shaft. Those specs are based off of my launch angle, angle of attack, spin rate, swing speed, smash factor, etc. I just have to find something to put in the driver before spring season starts.

Just about every major shaft manufacturer makes a shaft close to what you are looking for.

Try the Diamana 'ahina...  x-flex, 72 grams, high kick pt

or the Aldila Rip Phenom...  x-flex, 75 grams, mid kick

How about an eighty buck sleeper shaft from Golfworks (and maybe Golfsmith)? The Aerotech Claymore MX 60 shaft (not the long drive version) was used by Eric Jones in late October when he won the Remax Long Drive competition for 50-55 year old guys. His winning drive was 369 yards, and his longest of the competition was 388 yards. The F5 model is good for swing speeds from 100 to 115 mph.

Oban Devotion gets play on tour

Try the Oban Devotion 6 or 7

They are at a decent price

Another might be the GD G Series at about

I think each can be found for about $140. But I'd get a pro to install it - spine and flo or SST Pured.

Thanks to all. I have some knowledge of golf equipment but rather than trying to find this on my own, I thought the collective brain would be better. You have all been really helpful.
