Hello everyone, I've been reading the forum for the last couple of months, but haven't posted. I'm 45 and only in the last 6 months have I done more then play once a year or so. Now I've been playing weekly. I have really old clubs that I have slowly started upgrading. I just got a Callaway X2 Hot 3 wood 15 degree and 5 wood 19 degree, which I really like. I would like to get the X2 Hot driver as well. My question is what loft should I get? I was just recently at Roger Dunn and my swing speed was between 86-91. The person working there said I should get a 10.5 and a regular shaft. However, I know that just because someone works at a shop doesn't make them an expert so thought I would ask here. Thanks for any and all tips.
Hey guys, I'm still rocking a TM Superfast with a regular flex stock shaft. I've been taking lessons for the past few months and my swing speed has been increasing (in the 106mph region now). Over the past few weeks, I've been hitting my driver really inconsistently and my instructor mentioned it might be because the shaft isn't stiff enough so we hit a few of his old drivers on Trackman and turns out that I'm able to get more distance (carry + roll) with a stiffer shaft. Anyways, I want to demo the driver market and find a new option with the right shaft. I have a Golf Galaxy and Dicks nearby, but also a couple locally owned shops that offer fittings. My only concern about just walking in is I don't know if I'll buy whatever I find there or not - and I'd definitely not buy anything over $300 (I'm afraid if I walk into Golf Galaxy this weekend, they will only want me to try the M1). So how do I approach this? I don't want some guy to have to do a fitting with me for 30 minutes and then I don't buy anything - is that a dick move? Thanks for any suggestions (P.S. My first choice would be to demo clubs at my instructors course's pro shop but they don't have any ATM)
