RBZ Driver Shaft

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Quick question to help solve a dilemma I am in.

 

I just bought the new RBZ driver..I had my friends gf who is a manager pick it up for me from Sports Authority (nice discount).  Her store only had a 9.5 stiff flex.  She called another store and put on hold a 9.5 regular flex and I'm not sure what I should do.

 

If I had to guess I'd be a regular flex. BUT ive been using a stiff flex on my Cleavland Launcher for about 2 years now (hand me down driver). I'm happy with my drives right now....but I do want more distance.  The big thing is the swing speed (I don't know what it is)...I've been doing research on it so I'm not completely clueless.  

 

I currently hit a slight fade/slight slice with the driver I have (more times then not). I'm far from a pro and usually shoot low 90's. Id say I drive the ball between 220-250.

 

Sound like I should go return it for a regular flex? I'm not sure if Im going to have time to get somewhere to get my SS measured.

 

I did read on here that TM's stiff might not be AS stiff as other brands. I was swinging both of my drivers to see if I could feel a difference but it's hard to say.

 

Any input would be lovely.  Appreciate it guys.

FWIW, I HAVE hit my uncles R11 reg flex...and from what I remember I hit it well.

 

I'm going to go ahead and guess then I need a regular flex...but the fact that I've been hitting a stiff for a year or so now is weighing on my mind..since I've adjusted to hitting it.

HoleinNone...The only way to know what flex shaft you need is to know your swing speed...Anything lower than 90 Mph should be played with a regular flex shaft..So anything 90 Mph or more should be played with a stiff flex shaft...You can have yours checked at any golf shop that has a simulator..The simulator will give you the ball speed once you have hit into the simulator..Your swing speed is 70% of your ball speed..So if your ball speed is 130Mph...Your swing speed is 91 Mph...Its important that you are in the correct shaft.....I hope this was of help to you.....
