The lighter shaft is easier to hit. I have a bad back and found I prefer a 50 g shaft even though I'm more accurate with a 65 g shaft. I've tried an S and it's like swinging with a board even though I have the SS to play one... it isn't worth it. A shaft that makes it easier on my back is always worth it.
It comes down to something called COR. It's been the same for years. Coefficient of Restitution. This is defined as the ratio of the final velocity to the initial velocity between two objects after their collision. Basically COR is a measurement of the energy loss or retention when two objects collide. That's why the claim of 5 yds further is bogus. Drivers are more forgiving across the faces today than they used to be because they've gotten better at making the driver faces and widening the "sweet spot." Still there is that main sweet spot where you get the max distance.
Which driver are you more comfortable swinging? It seems like you answered that. It's your new one. Enjoy your Sim Max.

Great day for golf, if a bit on the humid side. Greens were fast and firm.
Probably the best I've driven the ball (with driver, at least) in a long time. Approach game wasn't as good, though. Short game was good, not great. Need to stop being lazy and not reading how the contours of the green will affect the ball where it lands. Putting was pretty good. Made a couple of mid range putts 12-15', but didn't convert anything in the 6-10' range.
I can't say that I have fixed it as the Sh**ks still pop up every now and again, but I think that's just because I don't focus on what I need to be doing.
What I focus on is keeping my right elbow pushing in towards my left arm during the backswing, this helps prevent it from lifting and flaring way behind me which pushes my right hand forward while my left hand is trying to go back. When I do this correctly my right elbow is in the proper position for my downswing. This also helps the right shoulder to actually turn back instead of pushing forward. And lastly I try to keep my right hand flat, like holding a tray or pizza at the top of my swing. The toe of the club is a little open compared to how it should be when the club is parallel to the ground on the backswing, but it's the only way, as of now, that helps prevent it.
For your grip, I would look around the site as there are a couple good threads on how to properly grip the club. Best way is to lift the club off of the ground while you're gripping it, this has helped me to prevent the clubface being closed.
Hopefully that makes sense?
I could get home with a ripped driver and two ripped 3 woods. A gentle helping breeze would make me less daunted but anything other then perfectly struck shots and it’s not happening. Bout a one in fifteen chance I reckon.......maybe
