  1. Slight plot twist I thought might be worth sharing. I ended up going somewhere different to get another opinion fitting-wise. I was fit for the same head (G410) and the HZRDUS Yellow 65 in 6.5 flex. I ended up pulling the trigger on that, especially because I was able to get it at no upcharge.
  2. I was able to do a face on 7 iron this morning at the range. I apologize in advance if the angle isn’t perfect.
  3. That’s very helpful to know. Mine is around 108-110 so I guess it’s fair to assume that wasn’t necessarily the problem.
  4. And to address this, my current driver is the 913 D3 9.5* with the Aldila RIP Phenom 70 S flex. The fitter said I needed a more “stable” shaft to help with my left miss, I personally don’t think my original shaft is too stiff, but I don’t know much, which is why I asked in the first place.
  5. I’m sorry if I’m doing a bad job at explaining myself. I definitely do think that the G410 head was a major reason for the improvement. However, I hit that same head with multiple shafts, the DF being the one that performed noticeably better than the others. But since I can’t afford the combination that I was fit for, I was just looking for suggestions for something that would be similar because I have very limited knowledge of shafts.
  6. I did a bunch of research using everybody's suggestions (thanks again for all the good responses). It looks like the easiest option will be to get either an Even Flow Shaft, HZRDUS shaft or PING's stock low spin low launch shaft. I'm basing that on total cost and how easy it is to get one that already has the PING adapter.
  7. I completely agree, and thank you for providing the specs. One concern I have is getting the right flex on a completely different shaft because I know how much it can vary regardless of what flex the label says it is. Regardless, I’m definitely going to research the shaft lines you mentioned and see if I can find something that fits the same profile. If I end up pulling the trigger on something I will be sure to give an update. That could be worth a shot as well. The flex differences are also another concern I have with going for something completely different.
  8. That’s a solid idea, I’d definitely like to hear your thoughts once you give it a try.
  9. I appreciate that answer. I left out the fact the actual driver head that I was fitted for was likely the main reason for the improvement (my current driver is about 8 years old), not so much the particular shaft necessarily. I’ll start where you recommended. Thanks again for the input.
  10. Recently, I went for a driver fitting. It was a great experience and the difference was massive compared to my current driver (20-30 yards of added carry, much higher ball speed, total distance, tight dispersion, etc.) The shaft I was fitted for is the Diamana DF Series 60g, trimmed -.75. Unfortunately, the shaft itself is $400, which would’ve put me at almost $900 for a driver. Simply put, that’s unrealistic for me right now. I was wondering if there are any driver shafts that have a similar profile/characteristics at a more reasonable price point. I know looking for something “similar” to what I was fitted for can get a little tricky and isn’t the best idea, but I figured it wouldn’t hurt to ask. Any input would be much appreciated.
  11. I don’t have any face-on videos right now, but I can try to take some this weekend if I get a chance to get to the range. In terms of my start lines, my typical shot will start out to the right of target and curve back left, sometimes on mishits they will start straight-ish and curve left. I try to line up slightly right on most shots to compensate for the draw.

    3W Off the Deck?

    I’ve always found hitting a hybrid off the deck to be a lot easier personally, maybe it’s all in my head but that’s just my experience. I play a 17* hybrid on the low loft setting (I think that makes it 16.25*) instead of a 3W. I know it’s not a perfect substitute but that’s what has worked better for me.
  13. I found them to very forgiving. I can’t comment on how comparable they are to the G15’s, but even bad mishits generally stayed on target and didn’t lose a crazy amount of distance.
  14. I have plenty of times, but more along the lines of “I’m gonna hook this drive into the woods”
  15. I usually don’t tend to get too competitive when playing with other people, especially friends. Maybe the occasional match play round for bragging rights or something like that.
