Ultra-Light High-Launching Shafts? (Driver, Fairway, Hybrids)


Recommended Posts

I'm looking at ultra-light options for moderate swing speed, not only for driver, but also fairway and hybrids. Grand Bassara Beta comes to mind for the driver, but there must be some other options as well?

Does anyone know more about the Mizuno Platinum MFusion shafts? They seem to be very light.

Or can anyone recommend a website with comparisons of the different options in the market?

Golfworks.com has guides to the different shafts they stock, including weight. But I agree with @bladeputter_11, weight is only one criteria. I moved away from light shafts because I could not control them as much.

IMO which is often incorrect a light shaft in a driver may have some benefit in increased swing speed resulting in a higher launch  and increased distance at the risk of slices or hooks. Fairway woods and hybrids are better served with having more control over the trajectory of one's shot rather than pure swing speed.
