I went to a club fitter to order my Miura blades and I thought that I might as well check all my equipments just so that I can have confidence in them.
The results were confusing to me to say the least. I was really surprised. So I need you guys who are experienced to share your wisdom.
NOTE: I'm currently fighting a blocked shot to the right with all my clubs. This is my biggest flaw right now.
R11s with Diamana Ahina 60gram S-Flex 9* loft , neutral face
6i MP68 with Project X 6.0
Ball: Pro V1x
Software used: Trackman.
backspin: 2240 , Side spin: -130 / +170 , Launch angle: 9-11*
Ball speed: 148 - 161, average: 155mph . I forgot what my swing speed is, but 4 months ago I remember seeing between 102mph on the low side up to 112mph on the high side.
Spin: 3650 , Launch angle: 15.5* (If I remember correctly)
Distance: between 184 - 192 yds, Average: 186
Swing style: heavy load , mid to late release.
plane: -1.1* / + 1.3*
Club face: 4.8* open. (I forgot if this is driver or iron)
Ball flight: All goes right. (I was quite nervous doing this fitting and a little stiff)
So the fitter wants me to go:
Note: he also tricked me by not telling me I was swinging a Fubuki Alpha X-Flex and the results were straighter balls, same distance.
but this is after I hit multiple balls with my own shafts and I start to find my timing and swing. (I always hit bad tee shots for the first 4 holes before I straighten my shots)
Iron: Project X 4.5 or
Dynamic Gold R300 or
KBS Tour R-Flex.
Fitter told me also that a tour pro generally has a much stiffer driver shaft and a much softer iron shaft.
Thus I'm really confused... for one, I'm scared of X-flex shafts... I don't think I have remotely the swing speed to load X-Flex for the driver.
And for my irons... I got off a Project X 5.5 and switched to a 6.0 after a fitter looked at me 4 months ago.
I actually called my old fitter at golfsmith and told him the info, and he plus other fitters that work with him at other Golfsmith branches told me that my equipments are balanced and the flex are not too stiff, unless something has changed over 4 months, in which the changes I notice is that I have become stronger actually.
I may have forgotten some other info, so ask me if you need to know more.
So please do share with me your wisdom.
