I bought a Titleist 906F2 18* with an Aldila NV Fairway 75-s shaft. At first, I absolutely loved this club. As time went on, however, I started really hooking this club. I don't think it is the club head so I would have to assume that the reason is the shaft. I usually play a draw but I have not been hooking my other clubs like I have the 906. My swing speed is only about 100 so I assumed a stiff shaft would allow me to hit a relatively straight ball or, at the most, my normal slight draw.

What I am asking is if anybody thinks my problem is the shaft. If you do think that the reason for the hook is the shaft, is there a shaft I can get that would get rid of this hook. I would really hate to get rid of this club altogether because I think that, with the right shaft, I would love this club again. Thanks for any help.

So you think it is the head then? I thought the whole point of the 906 was that there is no draw bias. I can't continue using this club the way it currently plays so if it is the head and not the shaft, I will have to be looking for a new 5 wood.

Sounds like it's you, not the shaft. I know the NV is a very boardy, stiff shaft, so it's definitely not too flexible for your swing. I may be wrong, but I would work on your swing because that's probably the problem.

I would agree that it is my swing except I am not hooking any of my other clubs. I have a 3 wood that is not a 906 and I do not hook that. I have had other people hit this club and good players hook it and slicers hit it straight.

Can you trade it in or return it for something else?

One thought -- despite the quality control most manufacturers tout, sometimes they're gonna blow it. Maybe you got a club that just wasn't put together correctly. Maybe demo another of the same clubs and see if the problem persists; if not, tell your shop your club is screwy and see what they say about a refund.

    • Does it occur to you that your friend is not the arbiter of what is or isn't appropriate?  He is one man with an opinion. And you seem to think that that trumps anyone else's. You may as well say that I as an Australian, represent everyone in my country and have the final say over anything to do with my country.  Funny how this is similar to you you thinking that Florida is doing great on Covid - but then you'd know, so we'll defer to you, in spite of the numbers and facts. You are passive aggressive and a troll. Actually, I don't think you are a troll. I fear you believe your own simplistic arguments.

    • You really don’t get it. Not do you realize how dumb statements like that are, apparently, because nobody would make such statements intentionally if they did.
    • Played 27 Holes today made 7 birdies today finally birdied the 1st, just the second and third left to birdie.
    • I’ll pass that along to him and his people.  👍
    • Played my second round (ever) at the course that I think will be a home course for me next year (the complex has two 18s... I have played the other 18, but not in over a decade).  Birdied #13 to improve my away composite to five birdies and a total of -4 (I still have yet to par a hole nine in 2021 ... anywhere).  My two-round composite at that course is a 77.  By contrast, no birdies so far at my home course (well beyond two rounds played... and at least three scheduled in the next two weeks!), and three holes there I've yet to par.
