Shaft question?

5 posts in this topic

I currently play a Cobra Speed LD F driver with the stock stiff shaft in it. Last summer i demoed a Rocketballz driver for a few rounds and hit it great. It had the R11s shaft in it which would be a RIP phenom 60.  My question is, if i would select a shaft with similar specs to the RIP phenom 60 will i get the same results?

I am looking to get a new driver, primarily either a Rocketballz or the Titleist 913.  The shafts i am looking at to put in them are the following:

Rocketballz with a Graphite Design DI 7 shaft

913 with a Graphite Design DI 7 shaft  OR  Graphite design BB 6 shaft.

According to Titleist fitting chart all of the shafts (DI 6, BB 6, and RIP phenom 60) have similar launch and spin descriptions.

Also, The current shaft in my driver is 63 grams. what will going to a 70ish gram shaft do?

Those are great shafts -- GD shafts are known for smoothness and consistency. Tiger plays a DI something.

The 70g will increase your swingweight, but with Titleist you can install a lighter weight in the head to balance SW if it is slightly heavy for you.

Titleist also has a graph in their product catalog showing spin and launch as compared to other shafts - but you may have seen it.

Any chance you can get on a launch monitor and test some of the shafts out? Not sure if Titleist fitting cart comes with Graphite Design shafts, however.

Product charts can help you narrow down the field, but it's best to hit the shaft before you buy it.

No I do not have access to a launch monitor. In fear of ordering something that doesn't work well for me i will test out everything i have access too and  decide from there.   I am leaning toward RBZ or 913 though.  I will hit Cobra Amp, Ping g25, and R1 as well though.

      I'm no expert - that's for sure - but every once in a while I look at a swing and have to ask myself .. how are you a 17.7 !?!.  How long have you been playing?  What's your driving distance?  It could be just camera angles or the fact that I'm not much of an expert on other people's swing issues . .but it looks to me like your swing is pretty good!  I'd trade ya. 
    • Lowest score you've seen?
      I have played in a couple of the pro-am tournaments that the local pro tour, The Dakotas Tour puts on.  I played with a former winner of the tournament and watched him fire off a 65.  Watching him and some of the other pros play is fun.  He shot a 65 which was best of the day and you would have thought by his reactions he was over par.  He wasn't being a baby about anything, but he just knew it could have been a more special round as he lipped out 4-5 birdie putts as well.  Those guys have a different mentality when it comes to scores, but its fun to watch them plot their way around the course when they are playing for a livelihood.  This is the same tour that Tom Hoge came and played an event in his hometown of Fargo, ND last August.  He didn't win it either, took 2nd or 3rd I think.

      Ive seen some pretty low ones, but i feel like the most impressive round I've seen was a -4 or -5 round this guy i played with shot in sectional US open qualifying a few years ago. I don't remember his name - he may have just been a mini-tour or web.com player. But he had never seen the course before that morning. Really impressive.

      Sorry if I missed it, but I haven't seen this mentioned anywhere yet:   Game Golf, which uses sensors on the butt end of each club and a wearable GPS device to track yardages, accuracy and efficiency for every shot you hit in a round, is adding a pin placement feature to its software that will allow users to position the hole in its precise location on every green. The company says the result will be enhanced accuracy on putting and short game distance statistics. “A database of pin locations does not exist in golf, so we are building the world’s first and most robust set of accurate data on pin placements and putting for the amateur golfer,” says Game Golf CEO John McGuire. “We’ve put the control for pin placement back in the users’ hands. The big deal is that the next players to play the course on the same day will see automatically accurate pin placements and can truly plan their game strategies.”     http://www.golfdigest.com/story/game-golf-now-giving-you-pin-placement-option-chance-for-dollar1-million     and   New Pin Placement Feature:
      The first advancement not only helps golfers track more accurate putting stats from specific pin placements, but also helps other golfers who will play the same course on the same day. Using GAME GOLF LIVE or the GAME GOLF App, the new Pin Placement feature allows golfers to select the edit button on their phones, zoom in on each green and drag the pin to its precise location, resulting in putting stats that are 100 percent accurate on every green. "We track more data on more golfers on more golf courses worldwide than any other company," added McGuire. "A database of pin locations does not exist in golf, so we are building the world's first and most robust set of accurate data on pin placements and putting for the amateur golfer. With this advancement, we've put the control for pin placement back in the users' hands.

The new feature also allows for precise adjustment of ball locations on the green relative to the pin, further enhancing the accuracy of the data. The pin placement feature is currently available on iOS (iPhone) platforms and coming very soon to Android systems.   http://www.worldgolf.com/newswire/browse/92198-GAME-GOLF-LIVE-ANNOUNCES-MAJOR-UPGRADES
