Adams Idea A3 Boxer 4 Hybrid Lite flex- should I reshaft?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Picked up this club in golfsmith yesterday off the used rack for 19.99, needed a 4 hybrid.  Its in fantastic shape, the only issue is that the shaft is a graphite lite flex.  

 

I'm very beginner, and generally I'm not going to be swinging overly hard, but my irons are steel shafts in regular flex.  

 

My question is, should I get a new regular flex shaft for this club?  Is it worth it (the head is in great shape)?  Or did I make a mistake buying it?  It felt pretty good hitting it in the store, which is the reason I bought it.  

 

Also, if I do get a new shaft, should I go with something like this (looking to be cost conscious here)?

I believe the reshafting is $20.

 

Thanks in advance!

Should have probably mentioned, I'm not a senior - Im 27. Just didn't look at the shaft flex before I bought the club d2_doh.gif

my suggestion (please take with a grain of salt) is that for somebody just starting out (meaning you are focused purely on getting the ball up in the air and straight more than anything else) the lite flex is fine.  You might actually find that the softer flex helps you to develop good tempo by swinging smoothly.  If you are convinced that you need a stronger flex on the shaft, than I would suggest returning the club, and poking around on ebay to find a used club that is the appropriate flex.  You will be money ahead in the long run.

Thanks for the suggestion.  I actually am considering keeping the lite flex, just for the reason of being able to slow down my swing if needed. I'll take it out on the course this weekend and try it out and see how it feels.
