Shaft Advice

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

I need to re-shaft my Ping G20 10.5 driver (good driver), the factory TFC169D Regular flex developed a crack, and it's out of warranty.  While I'm at it I want to bring the trajectory down by using a L/M launch shaft and I'm torn between the Aldila NV55/Regular and the Fujikura Fuel 50/Regular. Specs on both are similar, and I had an NV65 in my older Taylor RX360 which worked well.  I'm leaning towards the Fuji but a guy I play with makes clubs and he says the Fuji is no better, just more expensive, almost double.  I never had a Fuji shaft before.  Also, the tip on the Fuji is .335 and the G20 hosel is .350 so the Fuji will need a shim.  Any opinions on which shaft might perform better and what difference will a shim make ?

 

Thanks,

Fred

I'd contact PING and see what they say anyway.

If the NV65 worked, why not stick with what you know. Also a stiffer/heavier shaft will bring the trajectory down more than what you have listed.

Thanks.  That was my feeling also.

 

I did contact Ping and they're pushing me to use their Ping Tour 169.  I'm thinking that this is just a sales pitch.  Will probably go with the Aldila.  I'll likely have Golfworks do it.

Is PING willing to replace it?

Nope, it's not under warranty, I got it used, but I want to stick with it.  It's a good club and works well for me.  It's a solid club, good distance, good control.  As I said my only issue is that it launches too high.  I'm hoping to bring the trajectory down and pick up a few yards and some more roll-out.

 

Still torn between the NV 55/R and NV 65/R.  Any advantage or disadvantage to either ?
