I recently went and was fitted for the new Taylormade Driver. The Pro suggested I go with a 10 (10.5 turn down ½ degree) and a stiff shaft.
Since I don’t have the $400 to drop on the new Taylormade I sought out a more economical equivalent.
After hitting a few clubs yesterday I came down to the Cobra 10.5 w/ stiff shaft or Callaway Razr X black 9.5 Stiff.
The callaway is a heavier club and it is noticeably heavier. However I was still carrying 250 on a cold day in Feb day, and considering I have not swung since Oct I think It was a decent distance.
So my 2 part question is this.
How much does weight really affect the driver? And would that slight weight of over 300 grams make that much of a difference?
Now if I do make the switch to a driver with a stiff shaft, should I also make the switch with my 3 wood, which is regular flex! (if the answer is yes, it will have to wait as it is just going to cost too much to replace all my woods).
I do have to saw being Taylormade driver/wood player for the entirety of my short golf career,(although I love my bertha irons) I really liked the Callaway Razr X black!!!!
Any advice or help would be appreciated!
