Best driver/shaft combo for these swing numbers?

2 posts in this topic

Hi all, would love some feedback.

I've thrown away way too much money on clubs without getting fitted. I finally went into Golfsmith today and tried out the swing monitor. I really only tried the TM R1, which I loved, but just wanted to get some numbers to think about. My swing speed average was 100mph, launch angle was around 16, and RPMs at 2000. The feedback I got was that these are good numbers and the guy recommended the R1 with stock stiff flex and a draw set up.

So, my question, should I go with the stock shaft? Any other ideas for drivers that would fit these swing numbers? I really want to have the most confidence possible standing over the ball. I have tried the Callaway RAZR, PING G25, and the TaylorMade R1. Any other suggestions, as well as shafts?

Thanks so much!

Did you try a demo club or two (already put together), or did you get tested using a fitting cart with a variety of shafts to try in different heads?

I have had pretty good luck with stock shafts in drivers and FWs - only exception is the RBZ FWs, the 45 gr. stock shaft was a bit too light. Some people will spend an extra $400 for a shaft upgrade, but I've never felt the need to go that way.

At spring demo days, the clubfitters have pretty much had the same idea on driver selection sequence: Find some models you like, test hit them, find a shaft that works for you, and fine tune it with changes in loft.

For someone who has 100 mph clubhead speed, the 16* launch angle may be a bit high. Could you lower the launch angle and pick up more distance? Again, if you got tested using a fitting chart, you would get to test out multiple shafts.

From clubhead speed and launch-monitor data, the fitter should be able to find a cluster of shafts with specs that fit you. Then, you can actually test out those shafts.
