Driver shaft not stiff enough?

3 posts in this topic

I recently purchased a new FT-9 and put a diamana whiteboard 83x in it. I played an aldila 85x for the last few years so I figured this would be a good replacement. The shaft feels a little bit whippier than what I am used to with the aldila shaft and the ball tends to pull left off the tee. Granted I can still put it in play but I have to hold off on the shot. Is this an indicator that the shaft isn't stiff enough? It certainly feels less stiff than the aldila I had been playing so I'm not sure if this is the cause.

Thanks

I cant directly compare them but from my understanding the whiteboard is a very low launch and spin shaft that is quite stiff in all sections. If you dont mind giving up a half inch or so in the final club length, you could take the shaft out and tip trim it a half inch. This would make it feel overall a little stiffer. And if not, the aldila 85x can be had fairly cheap on ebay.
