  1. Anywhere to still find a new Del Mar? I know they weren't part of the 16 line so I'll have to get the last gen model. I've seen them online new, but don't know if they are legit websites. Thanks in advance

If you have doubts, why not take your time, and make the best decision before you purchase ? [/quote] Well....because the way it is in pitt....there is no where I can go and just try out a shaft with my head because no one has the shafts with the str8 fit adapter on it This is the kind of thing that makes me wanna just sale the whole thing and put money into a new setup...I did just get a bonus...just really wanted to throw that money in the bank I play golf like 4 times a week and I just can't hit it anymore I probably will see about getting lessons and then go from there...maybe if I had the proprietor swing I won't need a change [/quote] Ben You have the classic symptoms of angst, buyers remorse, distrust, etc. I believe you are really not comfortable/trusting enough for true custom. I suggest you stick to off the shelf, pre-built, I have to try before I buy, what are your return policies, etc. type stuff. [/quote] maybe a little bit..haha I am just a try it before I buy it kinda guy...cant help it...i want to make sure it's the right fit for me...it's just a little crappy that places like GG don't have more than one other shaft that will fit my driver...if they want to do fitting...how are they going to fit me when they have nothing to go by other than hitting a different head...i don't trust that...i want to hit it with my head

[quote name='ChipDriver' timestamp='1314377112' post='3521184'] [quote name='ben6485' timestamp='1314369759' post='3520834'] Well...Nemacolan does not have a bunch of the shafts even though they have a partnership with nike....I'm not buying a shaft without hitting with it...that's just not the way I do things...its bs...no where in Pittsburgh area has the shafts with the str8 fit adapter(like the ones one the Nike website) Is it too much to ask to hit a damn shaft with my head on it before buying? [/quote] I may have missed it - but why are you stuck on Nike? Are there other heads/shafts that were recommended? or did you like any others? [/quote] Because I have a Nike ms black...it'll cost me more than I can spend to get a whole new setup
  9. Well...Nemacolan does not have a bunch of the shafts even though they have a partnership with nike....I'm not buying a shaft without hitting with it...that's just not the way I do things...its bs...no where in Pittsburgh area has the shafts with the str8 fit adapter(like the ones one the Nike website) Is it too much to ask to hit a damn shaft with my head on it before buying?
  10. crap..they don't, stock them...but Nemacolin resort about 30 minutes away has a partnership with nike and has a nike fitting program....so they probably have a number of shafts that will fit me.....so I called the instructor that does the fittings and left him a message....hopefully he calls back soon...still not going to do another fitting until I get the info back from my fitting yesterday...hopefully things will work out...I don't wanna pay a bunch of money for the wrong shaft

However, it's just a general guideline. I would have to say from experience and from the literature I have read that 106+ is the ideal swing speed for x-flex. Of course you have to throw in other variables such as how hard you load the shaft, what type of transition you have, etc. Also, it is very true that one company's x maybe softer than another company, but most if not all x flex shafts are pretty much close in terms of cpm numbers which leads me to believe that one company's x flex is not going to be a lot softer or firmer than another. [/quote] I remember the fitter saying that the S Flex in the Project X is like having an X Flex in other company's...so that's also something I should consider. I also load up aggressively...I guess you would say. He said I'm a "hitter", not a "swinger" [/quote] The PX 6.5 cpms out around 270 on average which is definately x flex. 6.0 cpms out around 260 which would be at strong flex which is in between stiff and x-stiff. I too am a hitter and load the shaft hard(play x-stiff) so I know exactly what type of golfer you are. Don't really have a choice when it comes to producing power when I'm 5'7 and don't have the luxury of leverage compared to a taller guy, haha. [/quote] cool...well, maybe he'll suggest something like the 6.0 I'm hoping he has a bunch of them in stock when he gets the list of what I possibly fit so that I can try them all out [/quote] Try a 5.5....it will be firm enough and you can swing easier and still hit it farther than you think. [/quote] I saw on the nike website where there are some nike dealers around the area that at the PX sticks so I will have to go buy and check them out
  12. can't find them onlineMy cousin has the Walter Hagen Irons he bought like 3 years ago and he can't find the specs...mainly the lofts he's possibly buying my cg14 52 wedge off me and wants to make sure the lofts of his SW and PW aren't too close to the loft of my 52
