Hybrid Shaft - Narrowing the Choices


Recommended Posts

Typical request for shaft advice but more in direction of narrowing it down to a few choices.

 

Golfer - 6’4” 300lbs and strong

Swingspeed 105mph to 110 at best.

Down swing transition - aggressive

Tempo - aggressive

A hitter

Normal ball flight high with high spin from hitting down on the ball.

Would like to lower ball flight.

 

Regards,

Dan

The UST website suggests VTS silver in 85x.

 

This worked out very well.

I just put one (75 stiff) in a 20* Adams 9031 and am really liking the results. Good stable feel and a nice penetrating mid spin flight. I will say that I did not care for it paired with a Mizuno 22* CLK head (the newer version)...but then again only hit it for one range session and may have to revisit. I play the VTS Silver in my driver as well.

Tested MRC OT h 100 x-flex today in a R15 19 degr Hybrid.

Length of the club is 40.125; MPOI is 2805 and the SW is D 0.5.

HW: 229 gr. No tipping.

(I will measure butt flex soon /freq analyzer was not working properly - flex is on the high end of the scale)

The raw weight of the shaft was measured at 108 gr. Playing weight of just 102 gr.

--

Feel: heavy and solid. Yet soft on the hands. mishits are not punished. Loading the shaft is hard to feel. (my driver chs is ±106-108)

Stability: excellent. Possibly the best I've felt in a hybrid shaft.

Flight: mid. On a rope.

--

Experience:

Before building the club I tested the shaft in various heads (Old CLK, 910, rbz, ballista) and was looking for the right balance.

I choose the R15 for the weight. I do not care for OEM hybrid setups most of the time: the shafts have crap stability, lack feel and are too light. I do not care for distance with a hybrid: I want to secure my long shot.

That is exactly what IT DOES. During the swing the shaft follows very accurately. No crazy annoying twists or twirls from the head in the release zone.

it is sturdy but not boardy. Playing curve shots, hi/lo was very pleasant. I was a bit anxious about the overall weight of the club but sofa so good..
