While I was at the range yesterday the clubhead of my Biggest Big Bertha broke off the shaft right above the clubhead (went about 100 yards!). From my understanding this club was made about 15 years old (my dad bought it for me used about 3-4 years ago).
I called Callaway, and they want $70+ shipping to have it reshafted!
They also said I could "trade it in" for a new driver at cost. A Razr Black would be $125 and a Razr Fit would be $210.
Called a local golf shop, their in house shaft would be about $50, installed. They can also get other shafts & have more in stock too.
They also suggested used clubs or some model year clubs that are marked down to about $200.
I have never been measured for clubs, not sure what my swing speed is. I am able to hit this driver 275 yards on a very good day, average about 225-250 when I hit it right. I have been battling a slice for years and was actually working on some adjustments to my swing when I broke it. I had gotten the ball to straighten out a bit.
What should I do? Is it worth fixing a 15 year old club? Or is technology much more advanced now that I should upgrade to one of Callaway's newer drivers?
The shop would measure my swing speed before installing a new shaft to make sure I am playing the right shaft, I could also get a full club fitting for $25 and then make the best decision on what new club to get...so many options! Any suggestions?
