Hi - New to the Forum - but hoping to get some adivce/opinions on a question I have.  I am a mid-80's player, and I have broken 80 a handful of times with 76 being my lowest score.

I was hitting my driver about 245 regularly, but I had a lot of spin and a very high launch.  On the advice of a guy at Golf Town, I got my driver reshafted.  I was hitting a 55g regular flex with a low kick point (the shaft that came with the driver).  They put in an Adilla NV 65 stiff shaft.  Long story short, it instantly reduced my spin and I started driving this thing up the middle and I was carrying about 260 yards.  This has got me thinking that I shoudl look into reshafting my 3 wood and hybrids.  I am even considering reshafting my 5 and 6 irons as I pull them left and think I may need a stiffer flex.

So, my question - should I look into buying new equipment, or just stick to reshafting?  I currently hit Adams Idea Tech A4 Irons and hybrids (3&4) with regular flex.  I like the clubs, and would prefer to keep the heads if it made sense.

Any advice would greatly be appreciated.  Also, if you can suggests any good shafts for a three wood, hybrid, or irons - that would be great.  I am looking for a lower ball flight and less spin.

Thanks

Go back to GT and test some shafts. The launch monitor can narrow the choices for you.

Definitely consider re-shafting over new clubs. Shafts can make a world of difference. Have you considered checking the lie angle of the irons you are pulling to see if that could be the cause. Obviously your swing speed is probably the biggest factor since you are using regular flex shaft in your irons as well, but the lie angle could definitely be a cause of the lefts.....especially if it's consistent.
