Went and had a fitting done for driver and irons, and got fitted into an ACCRA FX 260 M4 for the driver. Had no troubles with this when it was built, and decided against the matching fairway wood (was about to go on a holiday and couldn't justify the $$).

Now, I've bought a Cobra F9 Fairway with an Aldila Tour Blue, it was advertised as stiff but is an ATX 85g (which I take as an x flex with lower torque?). Basically I'm hitting it the same distance as my 3 iron and I know it's due to the shaft being too firm. Doesn't feel like it is loading or releasing at the right times. I could buy the matching shaft but it is hard to find in Australia without paying for another fitting, and it is quite expensive.

Basically, my question is if anyone has any recommendations for a shaft with a similar profile to the ACCRA that would suit me in a 3w? Or if anyone is selling an ACCRA FX 260 in FW length then let me know haha


Thanks!

    A regular Tour Blue or a Rogue Black are great fairway shafts. Similar profile. Mid launch which is nice for a fairway wood.

    Based on the Accra description, I’d consider an Evenflow Blue 75g in 6.0. Same torque, similar flex and launch / spin description. Likely very similar feel (smooth, even flex, not boardy, easy launch).
