Long-time lurker, first time poster here.
Recently I have been considering testing out a new shaft for my driver, but would like to know if it's worth it or if it's a swing issue. I have a 102-105 SS, but hit the ball comically high - like sand wedge high. I'm still able to squeeze out 240-260 off the tee, sometimes more if I put a good swing on it and can control the height and spin. The problem is I get virtually no roll out, sometimes I find my ballmark in front of my drive. On sims I'm getting about 3,500-4,500 spin rate. It's ridiculous because I can hit my 3-wood just as far. My driver ball flight just hits a wall at it's apex and comes straight down.
I'm comfortable working the ball both ways depending on my swing on a given day. I also rarely miss fairways, which is part of why I'm hesitant to make change. My current setup is an off the rack Ping G400 10.5 with a 55 Alta CB R-flex shaft. I've only recently become obsessed with the game hence the "beginner" setup in my driver.
Any reccomendations on where to start experimenting with lower launching, lower spinning shafts? Should I immediately jump to the other end of the spectrum (70 g x-flex) to feel the difference, or start more gradual? Thanks.
