Thanks Bill. It's interesting that you consider the DG to be a low trajectory shaft. It makes me think that the fitter really didn't care enough to try to increase my apex to attempt to accommodate my low spin rate. He didn't take any measurement for club length either, so I'm apparently standard everything, but stiffer shaft to accommodate my swing speed.
To be fair, the fitter did say exactly that - they will adjust the lie angle if it doesn't work for me, but like I said in another reply, how would I ever know if it is not working for me if I don't have a basis for comparison with other lie angles?
I also have fairly short legs, yet bizarrely a 35.5" wrist to floor measurement - which puts me at 2 degrees upright, according to Ping... Hence my concern that I'm just "standard" everything.
@Nick-uk Just a thought, you can always get your lie adjusted (whether you do it now or later). It’s pretty simple to have done down the road. I had mine adjusted 1 degree upright after the fact.
FWIW… We’re similar height, similar distance with the 7i. I’ve been playing the DG S300 and S400 for as long as I’ve been playing, and very happy with them. I did try different shafts once, ran back to the DG. I can only assume the DG product life has existed for a long time for a reason.
Also, unless someone is quite short or tall, most people will be fine with a “standard” fit.
Unless I’m working off of outdated information, the standard Dynamic Gold shafts haven’t really changed much in decades. They’re known to be low launch and high spin, kind of the preferred trajectory of yesteryear.
Again, spin rate alone is not enough information, but low spin rate + low apex height suggests an issue to me. It could just be your swing, but it’s also possible that shaft doesn’t fit you anyway.
Just for reference I’m a “low spin” ball striker myself, but my 7i averages 5900 rpm, not 4000. My average apex height is 95’ though. I play KBS Tours.
I was fitted out of DG S300 years ago. They don’t work for me.
