Just wondering if anybody knows anything about shaft weight,I've looked and can't find anything clear on it.My driver shaft weight is 45 grams in a stiff flex,
i have never got fitted but hope to some day.It feels sometimes a bit flimsy
and i find that i have to stay extra smooth with it to stay in control.Does anybody know how shaft weight plays in the shaft whether it be 45 gram or 75 gram e.t.c.Thanks,i just want to know if it would be worth swapping it out with a fitting or just leave it.

In general, bigger hitters prefer heavier shafts. But this is (barely) a general guideline and really is more a matter of taste and preference (as in hard to predict). 45 grams is really light for an S flex shaft - and keep in mind that there is hardly any consistency between various "S flex shafts". And some shafts are (relatively speaking) stiff in the tip with a softer butt end, vice versa, and every thing in between. And then there is torque (resistance to twisting) which is a different parameter. If you have a sense of "this is a bit flimsey" I'd say that there is a good chance that a different shaft (which might or might not be heavier and might or might not be stiffer) would work better for you. A good clubfitter could be very helpful, I would think. dave

    • Actually I do ( did ). I write right handed but throw, bat and golf left handed. I bowl left handed, played tennis right handed, Ping Ping..either hand is fine. When I try a new task or tool...I often have to consciously decide which hand feels better to use.   I think you mean anatomy? If the human body is capable of performing an action, there’s nothing opposite or foreign about it. It may be more difficult than another task, but not foreign or opposite.   The hands are the only part of the body directly connected to the club. We can manipulate the face of the club with our hands independently of the rest of the body. I can stand still and hit hooks or slices while keeping my torso practically still.

    • Juli,    Our dominant hands perform millions of everyday task for us that are in our subconscious mind. We never give them a thought. However, the golf swing is NOT in our subconscious mind . It is a learned conscious task that is totally foreign and opposite to human genetics. If it was NATURAL NBA and NFL and other great PRO athletes would be leading the PGA tour .    Our shoulders ( upper arms ) are the most flexible joints in our body . This enables our dominant HANDS to bring food to our mouths so we could survive as humans and they will ALWAYS roll over, turn down unless we force them / teach them to perform otherwise . The DS only takes 2/10 seconds . Whatever key you choose to use must be  preprogrammed / prepared before you ever pull the shaft back . The human brain can only sort out and perform ONE ( 1 ) task in that short amount of time . So - what is that one thought to be ? Well - their is a direct connection between the brain and it’s dominant hand . The right in your case . It is responsible for dropping the entire lever system down back around behind our torso and to stay right palm upward during the entire DS . If we don’t we definitely know what is going to happen and you can see it on any range in the world . It is the turning of the torso ( inner circle ) that squares the face, not the hands ! Yes - I know this sounds radical and some will say so , but check out * Cortical Homunculus * and see where I am coming from.  thanks for your reply . Good luck
    • I get where you are going with this.  The only thing I can think of that would really constitute a "Mental Mistake" is there have been times where I'm forced to used a cart and it's cart path only. I assume I have the correct club and then by time I walk across to my ball (Not sure why I never hit it near the cart-path.) I realize I don't have the "right" club. So, 9 times out of 10 I use the club I have rather then hike back for another one.  Sometimes it works out, sometimes it doesn't. When it doesn't I always think "Damned, I'm an idiot."  Pretty much the rest of the time my mistakes come from this list. Hit it off the hosel. Hit it off the toe. Hit it off the heel. Hit it off the bottom. Hit it off the top of the club, or roof of the driver. Shanked it. Thinned it. Or some other unexpected weirdo swing fault that happens.  I would bet "mental" mistakes, on average, probably make up about 1 shot a round for me... maybe less. I played yesterday. Shot an 84.... 12 over par. I don't think any of those 12 were due to "mental" mistakes. I would say that all 12 shots came from "didn't hit it good enough" mistakes.
