Upgrade driver shaft

Recommended Posts

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.

wow if ur cousin's a clubfitter than i would definately talk to him and go through him completely

the only reason i ask this is cause its not 100% convient to go to his course. Im gonna call him, and im going to hit all of the shafts mentioned on a luanch monitor. Thanks for the suggestions.

    • Wow, looks more suited to Croqeut than golf. Cant find anyting on the interweb about it. Looks like its pretty old though.
    • I think providing people dont turn up in speedo's and flip flops it shouldnt matter what you wear. If im at the range i'll generally be in Jeans/Joggers, t-shirt and trainers. Personally i dont understand the guys that turn up in their full gear to hit a basket of balls then go home, but each to their own i suppose. The way i see it is the range isnt just for dedicated golfers. Its a place for people to try it out, to have a bit of fun or, in my case, to spend some time with my 4 year old that doesnt involve staying in building train sets (fun but nice to get out). If someone turns up and they are not dressed to your liking or sound like they are having "too much fun" just ignore them and focus on what you are doing. I find it actually helps me when there is noise next to me as if i can hit good shots with a group of lads laughing next to me then not much can distract me on the course.
    • Zero.   I can't remember ever coming closer than 3 feet in about 40 years of off and on golf.  I guess I need to improve my iron play. 
    • And dawn of the big day has arrived at the Talamore Golf Resort. Or it will soon, anyway. Sand Trappers everywhere are rising to catch sight of the first scoreboard of the day, so we won't disappoint you and make you wait any longer than necessary. Teams for the morning foursomes are set.   I was able to zip south in time to catch the end of dinner at the Carolina Hotel at Pinehurst, as the coaches squared off to announce the teams. Sorry no group photo yet, and just a candid, but you can already sense that the East has more gray hair, but the West needs to do more stretching! I'll refrain from posting pics yet about some of the bling the teams received last night, but let's just say we should all hope for a tie in this Newport Cup match, to be decided by a sudden death fashion show: the all-red Pizza Delivery men vs the Jet Blue flight attendants.   
    • Drop and stop is realistic for a 15 handicap, as is sucking it back for a +1 handicap... I haven't updated my profile handicap in a while... But we'll go with I'm in the middle... Can I suck it back? Ummm... Maybe a foot or so... Am I a drop and stop sort of guy... More or less. But in this next phase of my game, I'm playing shots that are much more consistent than what I was hitting before. If I miss a green from 150 yards and in now, it's not by very much... I played 27 holes yesterday, I did only hit 9/27 greens in regulation, however, almost all of my missed greens were nGIR, and most of those we within 10 feet of the edge. It's definitely better than it was with this way of playing shots from 150 yards and in, because with my driving distance most of my iron shots into par-4s on my home course are from 150 yards and in. "GIR is King, nGIR is Queen."- Lowest Score Wins.  As a side note, that is only tangentially related. (It's a slightly different skill)  My pitches and chips have started to get better, since I purposely started playing the shorter swing shots.
