Upgrade driver shaft

8 posts in this topic

i used to have a diamana blueboard R flex on my sasquatch driver and the performance was astounding, until i needed an S Flex. So recently, i upgraded shafts in my 3 wood and hybrid and their performance greatly improved, i was getting more carry and more roll. I was wondering if anyone could recommend some low launch shafts for drivers that are for better players.

Thanks for the impute

How much do you want to spend? You can go really high end and purchase a Matrix Ozik shaft. Since you had a Diamana, have you thought about an Accra? They are made by UST and Mariyama. Also, you can go wrong with a UST Proforce.

I'll make the same recommendation I make to everyone. Find the CPM count that produces an optimum launch angle and ball flight. Have your fitter then pure the shaft to that exact number. CPM is the shaft flex, BTW. It's more precise than saying "Regular" or "Stiff." It narrows it down to the nitty gritty.

First off, where did you get that great idea for putting the college that you want to go to in your signature?

More importantly, why not try the Blueboard again, but in stiff? If that doesn't do it for you maybe try the Whiteboard. But if you wanna try something away from Mistubishi Rayon, try Matrix Ozik, Graphite Design, Prolaunch Red. I mean all of the shaft companies make a good low launch shafts, as long as you are willing to spend the money for it. But Just go try out different shafts, get fit if you can, or check the company websites and find the one that performs how you want, and then get it.

I totally agree with the above comment. However, i would suggest trying the new Aldila DVS.

the best way to test out some shafts, is to go to your local golf store and ask to quick-fit some shafts in one of the manufacturers set-up. Like Nike, Callaway, Taylor Made etc.

They can "click/screw-in/on" a new shaft in seconds, and most stores have the majority of the shafts on site.

    • I have struggled with fat shots for years, and have gone through hundreds of different combinations of grips, stance and backswing, largely to no avail--until recently, and, now, 90% of my strikes with long and short irons are flush. Here's what I do:  1.   Two-knuckle left hand, firm. (Moderately strong grip.)
        2.  Right hand:   two middle fingers very light touch on shaft.  Thumb and index finger virtually off the shaft. Pinky hovering over left hand.
      4.  Feet slightly less than shoulder width apart.
      5.  Toe line open 10 degrees.  Right foot 10 degrees open (line perpendicular to right foot therefore is 20 degrees open to target.  Left foot is 20 degrees open (30 degrees left of target line).
      6.  Wrists have zero tension:  angle between shaft and forearms is almost 180 degrees, i.e., wrists are "drooped," not cocked up slightly to lift clubface.
       7.  Weight is 80 % left.  (That's not a typo.). Head is angled right.
      8.  Take-away is 100% by left arm push.  Two fingers of right hand serve only as support going back.
      9.  Take-away direction is along the 9:30-3:30 direction (outside-in).
      10.  There is no wrist cocking, only a dorsal hingeing; the hingeing is not made to happen; it occurs naturally.
      11.  I try to stay on the left foot as long as possible on the backswing.
      12.  Left arm goes back about 135 degrees, with the butt end of the shaft pointing toward the ball.  (The shaft makes an "L" relative to the left forearm.)
      13.  Swing down along the 3:30-9:30 direction.
      14.  The right hand should come off the shaft at the end of the swing, evidencing the extremely loose, two-finger right hand grip.
        Hope this helps other high cappers.
    • I tried to play Goat Hill with some friends when I was waaaay beginning.  Turns out it's not a good course for people who don't know how to play    I haven't been back -- is it actually good?  The costume tourney sounds like a lot of fun.
    • It's still up;  the time (of day) and place are fluid, but I think it'll be Sept 24. I appreciate the offer of prizes, Fredo, but you don't have to.  
    • Knox thought he should be the first captains pick, he can't be happy.  
    • Ask yourself this: is your goal to be a golf club designer, or to find a driver that works for you? So, if you want good distance and fairways, get on the launch monitor and see if you can get your driver zeroed in. If not, swap out before 60-day guarantee expires. A driver is not a great offer if it doesn't work for you. I didn't mean to be harsh, but understanding shaftology will take lots of study. To get started on shaftology, see this recent thread: Shaft Flex  Get your driver straightened out, and pick up details on how clubs work along the way. A good fitter can help explain the specifics of your case.
