I have a strange question and I can not quite seem to figure it out. Recently I switched from a Callaway FT-5 9.5 Neutral with stock Stiff shaft to a Taylormade Burner (2007) 10.5 stock Regular shaft.

With the Regular shaft the ball went long and straight almost every time. When I attempted to hit the Stiff Shafted version (same shaft stats) of the 2007 Burner I sprayed the ball everywhere. I am not a big hitter typical drive is 260-280 depending on how I get a hold of it. To Note: My swing speed average is 108mph.

My question is this, how come I hit the Burner better in regular than I do with stiff?

You cannot go by the flex that is stamped on a shaft anymore, especially between different manufacturers, and sometimes the same manufacturer.

Okay in case anyone was wondering, I figured it out, it was my swing not the shaft. After correcting the swing I have more control, accuracy and distance with the stiff shaft than I did with the regular flex. Operator error.

thats why I reshaft every club I buy unless i'm buying directly from the warehouse where I can customize it myself. Shaft flex is so variable nowadays and it makes it very aggravating trying to play clubs with what is expected to be the same flex when in fact it is not. Weight of the shafts can play a factor too when talkin drivers.
