shaft specs comparison

6 posts in this topic


I'm thinking about buying a used driver.  Taylor made 2.0 senior shaft is described as 10.5 degree loft. The staft is a graphite Matrix Ozik  Xcon 4.8 Flex M. I had the shaft tested and it is Senior Flex.

Another type driver has a shaft described as " Aldila RIP'D , Graphite Senior.

My question is:  which shaft would be better?  Don't know what my clubhead speed is.  Shaft lengths are 45".  Thank you.

Any chance you can hit these two drivers before you buy them, maybe get some launch monitor data?

As for shaft specs:

Aldila RIP.D NV =   Light flex... 55 grams....   MidTorque.... Low Kickpoint

This shaft stock for Callaway Razr Fit woods (2012)

Matrix Ozik 4.8 = M flex (senior) Closest I could find was 5.0 version on RBZ:

M.Flex .... 45 grams.... 4.5 Torque (above average).... Low-Mid kickpoint

TaylorMade doesn't do a very good job of archiving clubs/shafts which are no longer production models.

Basically, the RIP.D would be heavier, have average torque, and a fairly high launch

Ozik 4.8 would be a mid-high launch.

FWIW, I have the RIP NV stiff low kick point in my driver, and I can tell you this, it feels really whippy even for my swing. I have no idea what my swing speed is, but I know my carry isn't much over 240 if that. I think I would look at the Matrix,.

    • Just a typo. Worth reading the article though.
    • My goalsfor the year are three fold but they all have the number 50. Between April 15 and October 15. 1. Play 50 rounds  2. Driving Range Practice 50 times 3. Dedicated putting/chipping session 50 times To get me in the spirit of things I'm reading a book on Father Son Tom Morris and The Greatest Game Ever Played.   I'm going to be buying this putter because I have a hand tremor, this putter was designed for that which should help my game astronomically.      https://www.biomechsports.com/golf/   Last year I also started dialing in my wedge game by buying a Cleveland 52 56 and 60 degree wedge.  If you have never used a 60 degree wedge you have to try it .  It has changed my short game incredibly.  I also have a good teacher to go to so here's hoping for a great season.   Join me me on my quest for 50.
    • So today I was luck enough to play golf in February in Wisconsin. I changed my irons, 3w, and hybrid going into this season.  I haven't posted much since October that will be changing.  My wife and I bought a house which is a awesome yet a pain in the ass all at the same time.  On Halloween (my birthday) our furnace wouldn't work and on christmas eve a big piece of ice fell off our roof and smashed our A/C unit.   Those issues plus some other remodeling has kept me off TST and completely away from golf.  I played in a scramble on 10/23/16.  Haven't picked up a club until Saturday since that outing (well except to move them from our apartment to our house). I will hopefully be playing a similar amount as last year and working on improving my swing.  I will be getting a updated swing on here once we get some more good weather.  It looks like it will be back into the 30's in a few days. This was my round today. http://www.gamegolf.com/player/Jakester23/round/1336229 I felt pretty good other than a few swings.  Its pretty cool to get 2 rounds of golf in already this year. 
    • We've discussed how bogus the "timing" thing is in other threads… but it doesn't take a genius to figure out that a few mm swinging at 80 MPH or whatever is not going to amount to much "time" to "square" the clubface. Offset works because it tends to make people aim the clubface to the left. They line up the toe and the hosel, and the clubface points left.
    •   Haven't done this in a while... here's my current swing with 6 iron Haven't kept a legit handicap, but first three rounds this year have been +3, +4, +2   what i'm working on: 1. shortening my backswing in order to stay more connected going forward 2. more side tilt in the downswing/getting the bottom of my swing forward to eliminate that unsightly flippy action and lower ball flight 3. eliminating the early extension just before impact... which should straighten itself out once I take care of #2.   any advice appreciated gents!
