I've been told by an experienced golf fitter that the best driver shaft selection for my physical body measurements, m swing and my 92 MPH CHS is a Matrix Ozik XCon 6 R-flex, cut to 44 inches. My current driver has a Matrix Ozik XCon 5.5 S-flex. Apparently the 5.5 is especially made for Taylormade to put in their r7 Limited drivers from 2008, because I can't find a shred of data on it.
Looking at the specs for a stock length XCon 6 R-flex as follows:
Weight 67.5 grams
Tip OD 0.335
Tip PAR 3.5
The problem I'm having is this. The price of a retail Matrix Ozik XCon 6 is a hefty $300. I paid $299 for the entire club 2 years ago, so that's a non-starter. So before I go and make such a purchase, I'd like to know what you good people think. First some information...
Looking at the specs for a stock length XCon 6 and XCon 5 S-flex here's the primary difference:
XCon 5 Weight 59.5
XCon 5 Torque 4.0
XCon 6 Weight 69.5
XCon 6 Torque 2.5
Going with pure logic... I'd venture to say that an XCon 5.5 S-flex is probably somewhere between the two values, right? Interpolating, I get the following spec:
Weight 64.5 grams
If I cut my XCon 5.5 S-flex 46 inch stock shaft down to 44 inches, would that come close to equating to an XCon 6 R-flex?? The same club fitter said not to do this as it would upset the shaft's dynamics.... but I don't quite know what that means. He said I should just learn to choke down on the club. If I cut the 5.5, should I get it frequency tuned?
