I really appreciate this post, thanks a lot. Maybe standard everything will turn out to be the best for me after all, it's obviously just a bit frustrating to hear after going for my first custom fitting! I'm definitely happy with the heads though, and I'm pleased to hear your opinion on the s300, so hopefully the lie angle confusion will work itself out. The only question is - how will I ever know if it's resulting in dodgy shots, or if it's simply a bad swing (as I have no basis for comparison)!?
I wasn't aware of DG being a higher spinning shaft - I'd just assumed that because it was a very common shaft it was pretty average spin. That's definitely good to know though.
I did hit the forged but found I lost quite a bit of distance. Clearly I'm not good enough for them at this point.
I agree, but if there's a particular technology that helps increase spin, why would I not go for it?
I believe my swing speed is quite a bit faster than "average", but I'm fully aware that the low spin is a result of my rubbish swing. I wasn't suggesting it wasn't the right shaft, I was simply looking for another opinion. The above definitely makes me feel better about the DG now anyway!
Sounds like I got a bastardized version then. Looks like I got the mavrik22 club head, with project x evenflow riptide 50 shaft. They even gave me the epic head cover. This order is all over the wrong place.
If you are of average height and build, with average clubhead speed, and you somehow think that Dynamic Gold 300 shafts - probably the most popular/common shafts for decades - are an issue for you, you might need to look elsewhere. You have a swing/impact issue. Not a shaft issue, in my opinion.
The other thing is that not all the greens you play on are necessarily amenable to low shots holding them - you have to be able to hit it high unless they are soft. Yours is simply a garden variety version of why certain players can and can not win at Augusta. Equipment isn't going to drastically alter the characteristics of your ball flight if certain fundamentals are not in place.
