OK, that's fine. But just remember that just because you get no roll, that doesn't necessarily mean you are "losing" distance. In fact, I doubt it very much. By that I mean, if you were to switch to a different club or shaft that gave you more roll, it would likely do it by simply giving you less distance in the air. Basically, just a lower trajectory.
I would think that being able to hit any club and have it land softly - even a driver - would be a good thing.
Of course, if you're playing links courses, or in Texas, or any other place with firm fairways and wind, then yeah, maybe lower shots that roll are the better option. But anywhere else, I don't see it as a problem.
Just get out to the range and work on your short irons and wedges!
