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.

    • Well, Yes.  Basically a skinny cart.  When I proposed these to course owner a good quality model was $1,700.  They have Yamahas.  The best, IMO. The math worked.  And, the range of them was waaaay more than twice that of a 2 passenger.  Number of charging stations and overall real estate for same would/could be an issue.  Number of wheels on the course is a valid concern.  I think the weight of singles would somewhat offset that concern. Often, we have a 90 degree restriction.  You know, stay in the rough until you’re even with your shot.  Then go straight out and straight back to the cart path.  Can’t tell you how often that is ignored.  Plus, people unnecessarily driving through low, wet, areas.  Grrrrr!
    • Not necessarily, they come in 2 wheel configurations, basically a scooter.
    • DAY 51  January 23rd.  Great weather so I spent a little over two hours on the range working through 10 drills from the book, "How to Train for Golf Like an Olympian."  Today my focus continued on better rotation throughout the swing.  I placed an alignment rod in the ground facing me when I set up to the ball.  Then hit shots trying to monitor my head movement back and through impact.. this helps me focus on rotating around my spine and less movement off the ball. 
    • Day 19 - did some alignment work today to check where I’m actually lined up vs where I think I’m lined up
    • The only issue I see with individual carts is that means twice as many wheels on the course.
