Here's where I think I got screwed, but them again, maybe not which is why I'm coming to thesandtrap. My backswing with all clubs ie driver and irons is a slow one, with an aggressive down swing. My average club head speed with my driver is 120 measured at my local golf galaxy one week ago when I purchased the SLDR.
I am still learning a lot about the game. But when I purchased my irons, I grabbed a couple different clubs from different manufacturers right off of the wall. I liked the rbz's the most. Well coming from the knock offs, I hit an actual set of clubs way way better. I was "fitted", and had oversize grips put on and the clubs were extended 1in.
Sorry for this being so long guys. Only when I picked the clubs up after the work was done did I realize that they were Regular flex. I am not a pro nor a club fitter but I thought I should be in at least stiff flex shafts. When I asked about it the guy who fitted me said and I quote, "you were carrying your 7 iron 195 yds and you were hitting them well, I don't think you need anything to be changed. Touché I thought to myself.
When I went down and purchased the driver, the man who fitted me didn't look familiar, well he was an actual taylormade rep who was there for some program they were doing. He explained to me that, with a swing speed as high as mine, playing regular flex shafts, the amount of flex I'm getting is way too much which in turn causes inconsistency when the club head makes contact with the ball. He recommended x stiff, soft stepped down. I'm not sure what that means.
Last thing, knowing how much better I hit the taylormades vs the knock offs, it was hard for me to think that the clubs "could be" causing my inconsistencies.
So I was wanting some advice and really hoping you guys could help shed some insight. Again sorry for the long story by all to often I see people asking for help and all the replies are saying how they need more info. Thanks in advance
