High launch shaft help?

9 posts in this topic

Hi guys I've got a titleist 910 d2 driver fitted with a stiff project x 7c3 shaft. My ball flight is low-mid and I feel I'm losing a bit of distance and ideally would like a bit higher launching shaft. Can anyone recommend any shafts please?

What is your current launch conditions, number-wise?

Many driving ranges have a barrel of used clubs for the average player. Pick out a couple drivers and hit them then write down some notes what ball flight, distance you got from each one. Go back and hit a couple more and write down your results concentrating on shaft manufacturer, flex, loft of driver. That should give you an idea what best fits your swing.

The PX shaft you're playing is definitely designed to launch the ball somewhat low, so the good news is there are a lot of options to help get a higher trajectory, but saevel is right...without knowing your launch numbers or knowing a little more about your game or what you like/don't like it's hard to make a suggestion.

What other shafts have you played in the past that produced a good trajectory for you?

Have you adjusted the loft? You can add 1.50 degrees (or .75 deg) of loft which may solve your issue.

I have a FUJIKURA MOTORE F3 60 Driver shaft in stiff.  It is high to mid high launch.  I like it a lot.

I had the same problem as you. Struggled with the PX and the Ahina for months. Bought a made for Titleist Kal'i 65 in stiff and problem solved. Nice boring mid high ball flight. Got all of my distance back and probably a little more. 108 to 110 swing speed and the shaft holds up great. Good thing is you can find these pretty cheap too. Hope it helps and good luck!

Timely.

I have a Callaway Razr Fit that had a Aldila RIP'd NV in R in the thing. This is my "range beater". The problem with the RIP'd NV shaft is that I have to swing out of my socks to hit it. When I do that I get great distance and flight, but I'm never going to swing like that on the course. Aldila shafts are fitted A-flex: 75 to 90 mph; R-flex: 90-100 mph. So R-flex is like a stiff in some other shafts.

My Big Bertha is cut to 44" -- Fubuki Z50 shaft in R (for 80-90 mph)

I wanted to shorten my Razr Fit to the same length so I wrapped some electrical tape around the butt end of the grip. This made the shaft feel even stiffer. Grrr. I don't want to bang my good driver with those rocks at the range.

The shop at the range had a 3-wood Aldila Trinity shaft in A-flex for the Razr Fit which was 1/4" shorter than the shaft on my Big Bertha

The Aldila Trinity shaft was a lot easier to hit, caused no loss of distance for a normal hit, and it didn't feel like I was hitting with a board. It is a higher launch shaft, and matched my BB's shaft more closely for feel. I really like the feel of this shaft.

The best part? Since they had no use for the shaft because it had the Razr Fit tip on it, it was free . Regular price $200.

    • Because everyone gets bored of blue skies now and again! Crazy winds and serious mood-lighting! First hole has the signature lighthouse behind the green and a great linksy fairway, second is a 114 yard par three that played about 140 yesterday.  
    • A good afternoon of birthday practice yesterday. Did a lot of short game work and went out to the course way after the last tee time to put them in practice in 'real' situations. Finally I did a nice putting drill to gauge areas to focus on - this will be a bit of a regular thing that I go back to now and again to judge progress. A few photos from on-course work: Downwind - 15mph and dispersion from shots at 125 yards, 115, 100 and 75. Nearly pulled the wedge from 75 into a bunker, which would have been horrendous, so that's a bit worse than it looks. Delighted with the rest and all on the middle tier of a three tier green. After about 10 minutes of practising, from 50 yards using a variety of clubs (furthest to nearest) - putter, wedge, hybrid chip. Had to come up a big tier, so pretty pleased with this. Hybrid chip was the right play in that it took the tier out of play, but my default would have always been wedge. Just nice to add another shot to my game - although it will need more practice. Putting: Just need to make more inside 10 feet. Great not to have any 3 putts though! Hole Ft Break Score 1 Score 2 Score 3 Score 4 Score 5 1.         3ft Straight 1         2.         6ft R/L uphill 1         3.         9ft L/R downhill 2         4.         12ft R/L downhill 2         5.         15ft L/R 2         6.         4ft slight break downhill 1         7.         8ft R/L 2         8.         12ft L/R 2         9.         16ft L/R downhill 2         10.     20ft L/R uphill 2         11.     5ft slight break 2         12.     10ft L/R 2         13.     15ft R/L 2         14.     20ft Straightish 1         15.     25ft Double Break 2         16.     6ft R/L downhill 2         17.     33ft Slight uphill 2         18.     45ft Slight downhill 2         Total 32         Strokes Gained -2.81        
    • 26/2/17 - more slow takeaway work. Heading to the range later and will spend time really working on transitioning this work to full swing. I think the feel needs to be that my left arm is glued to my stomach, but will check with video later.
    • Thank you! Got out for a few holes so it was a good day in spite of work!
    • 2/25: Played two rounds today with dad at a different course than usual. Shot 96 and 93. A few nice strings of pars and made several amazing putts (). Mostly bogeys other than that but managed a couple of absolute blow-up holes in each round that helped to guarantee 90+ scores from an otherwise very nice day of golf. I could complain about "sand-traps" sans-a-single-spec-of-sand with 10-foot wide puddles in them, or mushy fairways, or waiting 5-minutes for the 4-some in front of you on every shot, but there wasn't a notes field on the scorecard.  Practice is paying off, though. Hit my drives farther than ever, draws when I wanted them, and the fade didn't let me down when I needed it. 3/4 "flighted" shots are the new go-to approach of choice all the way out to 160+ with my 3-iron, and (n)GIRs have jumped up considerably. I've rambled on about my short-game improvements before, but it continues. Holed a pitch shot from about 10 yards and stopped 2 others 6 inches from the pin. Gotta play some more rounds from the front so I get used to stringing pars together. Realized today that I don't just get nervous about it, I also get cocky. Weird combination.
