If you want to have a fairly "high" trajectory, go with the Ping shaft.
If you want a slightly lower trajectory go with the Seranno.
If you want to go slightly lower still specify the Prolaunch Red from the WRX options list.
I find the standard Ping shafts to be a little too "whippy" for me.
The torque figure relates to the shafts tendency to twist during the swing.
The lower the figure, the less "twist".

Hey Smiffy,

I see you play the G15's. Just wondering if you tested them against the Rapture V2's? I'm trying to decide between the two lol....

Also,

Go with the Serrano, I have read great reviews about it compared to the tfc 149

I asked my local PING dealer about these. He said the Serrano shaft is targeted toward players who want a mid-to-low ball flight. He said the stock PING shaft is more of a mid-to-high shaft.

You'd probably need to demo both and see which yielded the best results for you.

The only G15 club I have in the bag is the Driver, and I haven't checked this out against the Rapture. Mine was a direct replacement for the previous G10 model.

The G15 is taking a little more time to adjust to than the G10. Despite what my pro (and others) say, the G15 does seem to sit a little more closed at address than the G10 did. I'm finding my bad shots with the G15 are straight pulls, whereas the bad shots with the G10 were fades. Same shaft, same swing (I think) so it's got to be the head, hasn't it???

You are scaring me.....I really don't like closed driver faces. I'm hoping my dealer will get some demos in soon. I'd love to try one.....10.5 with Serrano stiff.

    • I have come to the conclusion that some shots just aren't worth attempting. Sometimes Stroke and Distance is the easier way out.  1) the duffed tee shot that ends up rolling down a steep slope into a lateral water hazard. You're hitting out on a steep slope - lucky if your ball stays on it. Your local knowledge of the course says "f*** it." You re-load +2 strokes and stripe one down the middle of the fairway and get a B or DB. Be thankful. It could have been a snowman. 2) the shot that ends up in the tall fescue... deep in the tall fescue, but you know you can find it because you know the course. Your local knowledge once again tells you to abandon the ball and take a S&D and drop a ball and just hit a shot because hacking your way out of that thick dry grass is a total nightmare. Stop and pick up your first shot on your way... that $4 ball is still usable. Now a pro or low handicapper might actually try these shots, but for us higher handicappers these make blow up holes. Stroke and distance can actually be a lifesaver at times. It is something that can always be used.
    • There is one reason to have the latest greatest equipment.  If you love having no money in your bank account and can't afford to play golf anymore, then the newest clubs are a must have.  Don't get me wrong if I have a club in my bag that is not working I will replace it.  But I will buy last years model from a second hand seller, and still have way better equipment than Sam Snead or Bobby Jones ever played with.
    • You know, sometimes. I have found though that as I have improved, my times have gone way down. An hour and a half to walk nine. It used to take me over two hours. I don't hurry any more than I did, I read the putts the same, I still take a practice swing or two. I actually hurry less, I used to pick up on holes, or not even look for balls and just drop one. It's just that now I progress towards the hole significantly with each swing, balls are easier to find if they are usually in the short grass, This past weekend, I hit a bucket before playing, the range is right next to the first tee, across a little drive. A couple got to the first tee in a cart just as I walked to the range. I hit a whole bucket of balls, crossed the road to the first tee, and they were still playing the first hole about 150 yds out from the tee, looking for balls, I think. Anyway, they waited for me on the second hole and let me play through, so I couldn't be mad. But wow.
    • FWIW, I had a long (forced) layoff from golf a few years ago. I basically had to start over from day one. The reason for my layoff required that I start slow, and easy. I started with my putter, and worked my way from there, back to the tee box. You can "google"  learng the game backwards for more information. I know it works, because I have seen it it work with a few golfers. Obviously getting quality, personal  instruction is probably the better way to go. However, it's pretty difficult to find that quality instruction, unless you do your home work, and can find the right instructor, and more importantly have the time/money to spend with that instructor.
