My current driver is about 10 years old with a regular flex and 10.5 loft. I haven't hit it well for some time. That's mostly in the swing, and I am taking lessons to try and improve, but I am wondering if it's still a good fit for me. I had a fitting session with a pro with a launch monitor recently. Swing speed was in the high 70s, low 80s. Launch angle was pretty bad, spin rate was pretty good. (The launch angle finding fits in with some of the address and ball position changes my instructor is recommending.) The pro recommended a Rocketballz Stage 2 high launch set to 12 degrees loft with a regular shaft. (That fit my budget better than the most recent offerings). The only other driver he had for a comp was a Cobra AMP. His price was not competitive on older equipment so he recommended I look around. Turns out the high launch with a regular flex isn't easy to find in retail stores. It would be easy to find a stage 2 Rocketballz at 10.5 that can be adjusted to 12 degrees. I assume the only difference in that and the high launch would be the ability to go up to 13 degrees if needed. Does that seem right? I also wonder about trying something like an Adams Speedline S, primarily because Adams has such a good reputation in maximizing game improvement. Looks like that driver can go up to 11.5 degrees loft. Any thoughts about comparing those two clubs? Should I consider a Calloway in that price range? Maximum forgiveness and improving the launch angle are the big things I'm looking for.
