Which loft/shaft for my driver?

9 posts in this topic

So,

I am an 8 handicap and have a 909 DComp driver. I have had it for 2 years and got it when I was like a 15 handicap. It is cut down half an inch and regular flex with 10.5 loft. Last year I was hitting about 230 with 210 carry and this year I am in the 230-250 carry range and hit about 240-260. I demoed a 910D2 yesterday with aldila RIP stiff flex 9.5 loft. I hit it roughly 15-20 yards farther than my driver now. I have a very nice trajectory with it and seem to be much more accurate with it. I am just wondering if this is probably the right club for me? I dont care for like all the adjusting crap to the nozzle to make you draw or fade and what not but if they are there I would maybe adjust loft only if I got this driver. I am wondering if I should just reshaft my club with longer stiff flex or go trade it in for a 910. My driver seems to have a higher trajectory and a lot less roll.

What do you reccomend?

Thanks

Why not try out a new shaft that will have less loft this way it off sets what you are doing and you get best of both worlds. Kind of a new driver same reliable head but different flex and shaft and grip.

Im confused, so i get a certain shaft that gives the head less loft? Would there be much difference in a 910 D2 and a 909DComp if they have same shaft length, shaft and loft?

Because I know I need 9.5 loft and S flex, just don't know if I should get 910D2 or like a 909D2. I was hitting the 910D2 amazingly well yesterday but I dont know if that is how I would hit a 909D2. Is this years driver really that much better than 2 yrs ago? Like I said, I could care less about adjusting the driver for a fade or draw and what not but the companies want you to think this years driver is 20 yards longer than last years.

I am hearing longer lighter shafts is the reason for the longer distance.

Yes, the driver I hit yesterday was much more accurate and average 15-20 yards longer. it carried about 5 yards longer and rolled 10 yards longer because of the decrease in loft. I swing up with 9.5 driver to get good carry and good roll. The 10.5 seems to hold its line upward better than the 9.5 which has a rounder trajectory, but it carries a little farther and goes a lot farther.

My driver was perfect for me last year and the year before but all of the sudden I played yesterday and I can now drive 4 or the 5 par 5's in two (the one I cant drive in two is 545 yards)

Does anyone think the head alone on the 910 D2 would be deeper than the 909D2? Because if I could find a good left over 909D2 I would get it unless you think the 910 is a completely new, better driver.

It's not.  It's a good driver, just like the 909.

I went to a golf store with a launch monitor and tried various shafts in the 910D2. First I hit it with the 9.5 aldila RIP and it kept saying I was pushing it which is wierd from just coming two days ago hitting like a 5 yard draw straight almost everytime. The screen showed with each shaft and even my driver the same thing right fade, and I think it was because i couldn't really see where i was supposed to hit it. It said my launch angle with the Aldila was like 14.2 and my club head speed was 100 mph average, I was getting spin around 2200-2600 and my average distance was about 270 yards.  which seems a little long. I hit it about 10 yards farther than my Dcomp into the launch moniter. This seems a little bit wierd because I wasn't at all hitting the same driver head with the same shaft standard on the course like I was using a shaft too stiff. I was getting trajectory right where i wanted it and ball flight just like I wanted it with a slight draw.
