Re: ping tfc 149 or aldila serrano shaft??

just looked on ping website and tfc 149 shaft has 5.8 torque and aldila has 4.0 torque! Can anyone explain this to me please??

If you want to have a fairly "high" trajectory, go with the Ping shaft.
If you want a slightly lower trajectory go with the Seranno.
If you want to go slightly lower still specify the Prolaunch Red from the WRX options list.
I find the standard Ping shafts to be a little too "whippy" for me.
The torque figure relates to the shafts tendency to twist during the swing.
The lower the figure, the less "twist".

This article might help a little bit in explaining the effects of torque...

Hope that helps

Hey Smiffy,

I see you play the G15's. Just wondering if you tested them against the Rapture V2's? I'm trying to decide between the two lol....

Also,

Go with the Serrano, I have read great reviews about it compared to the tfc 149

I asked my local PING dealer about these. He said the Serrano shaft is targeted toward players who want a mid-to-low ball flight. He said the stock PING shaft is more of a mid-to-high shaft.

You'd probably need to demo both and see which yielded the best results for you.

The only G15 club I have in the bag is the Driver, and I haven't checked this out against the Rapture. Mine was a direct replacement for the previous G10 model.
The G15 is taking a little more time to adjust to than the G10. Despite what my pro (and others) say, the G15 does seem to sit a little more closed at address than the G10 did. I'm finding my bad shots with the G15 are straight pulls, whereas the bad shots with the G10 were fades.
Same shaft, same swing (I think) so it's got to be the head, hasn't it???

You are scaring me.....I really don't like closed driver faces. I'm hoping my dealer will get some demos in soon. I'd love to try one.....10.5 with Serrano stiff.

i have had the ping G15 driver for a long time now and admittedly it did take some time to get use to but now i have it is incredible the serrano shaft is the best out of the two as it doesnt seem as stiff as it is the G15 driver is the driver for any golfer and goes a mile when hit you can beleive me !!!!
