Aldila Shafts

4 posts / 851 viewsLast Reply

Hello, I am currently hitting an old Cleveland launcher that has a cut down green aldila nv 65 stiff shaft in it. I have hit this driver/shaft combo better than any other I’ve tried. I am wanting to upgrade to a Cobra F8 tour length driver and I am wondering what newer aldila shaft would work best for me based off the shaft in my current driver. Any information would be appreciated. Thank you!

Welcome to The Sand Trap. If you like the NV series, I would stick with that. I would also keep the same weight. Aldila has a bunch of shaft, but they are all slightly different. The NV series has a certain feel and is low to mid launch. If you like it, I would stay with it. They are still available.

Aldila has updated the NV in a couple versions recently utilizing some of the new materials that are available. If you like the old green NV I would look at the 2KVX NV. I have seen some measurements and the quality of these shafts looks outstanding especially for a shaft under $150.

I have the Orange 2KVX NV Stiff flex in my driver and I like it. My swing speed when I was fit for it was right around 100. Now I'm up a bit closer to 105-110 and it still feels fine.

I was a lower hitter with driver previously, and the higher launching shaft and a higher loft on the driver has helped me get the ball in the air more. 

I will probably retest on a launch monitor this year, but I think I might be getting a bit too high and too much spin now that I am hitting more up on the ball so I might need to switch to the Green model which is marketed as lower launch and lower spin.

    • The lesson was bit "meh", could of been partly because I had really bad headache. It's been actually so bad that I've taken few days off course completely and had a visit to a doctor. Instructor basically told me three things: 1. My upper back and chest are extremely tight, have so called "facet lock" if that's the right term in English 2. I slide a lot towards target during my downswing, making it hard to hit driver 3. I should check the lie angles of my clubs, 1 degree or so upright could help. For number 2 he gave me a drill where you set yourself to impact position and start the backswing from there. I pointed out this could work as a trigger move for me, he agreed. Will work on this surely, but I feel now it's not the time. I asked him few times about my wrist condition at the top of backswing, but he didn't feel that's a problem which made be bit disappointed because I feel it clearly is after watching the day 4 drill. Taking the wrist action as my number one priority to fix, because I feel there's many things that arched position at the top is preventing me from doing. Been working on it bit inside and today got to hit some balls. In order to have a chance to get that cupped wrist position at the top, I felt like my backswing direction had to change, the plane looks completely different now. I checked the wrist position multiple times before swinging, but I couldn't hold it at the top. However now it's atleast flat instead of arched, but I guess this needs much more work: Imgur Post with 1 views. Left wrist looks better to my eye at impact, but could it be I'm rolling my wrists over more or something? Thanks in advance!
    • A senior player I know likes to buy clubs from Callaway Pre-Own. He said they offer great prices/condition, trade-in value and returns if you don’t like the clubs. He is constantly swapping club through the program.
    • Played Pinehurst #5 this morning, finished with a 78.  Drove the ball well, hit 13/15 fairways.  Greens in Regulation, 3! That’s right, just missing most of them.  Putting saved my round,  26 total putts, 13 a side.  8 one putts several from 5 feet of more to save par.  Made two birdies, one of them from off the green from about 16ft, a real gift. The 9th hole was hilarious (at least to me). Dogleg right downhill (363 yards). Cut the corner with my 4 wood. 2nd shit is 140 downhill with the wind at my back.  Immediate thought was pitching wedge. Green had a false front, flag was short middle. So I thought let’s hit an abbreviated 9 iron. Great swing, ball is high and turning right to left. Looked like it will be right on the pin. Flies the pin and rolls off the back.  Up and down, one putt.  Oh well!
    • Shot a fantastic 70 (35-35) today. 4 birdies, with a bogey on 9 and 18. Stupid 3 puts on both. Actually shot my age again. First time it was a 68, two years ago.
