Driver shaft similar to original aldila NV75x


Recommended Posts

Looking for recommendations on shafts that are close to the same weight (Higher 70s for grams) and torque (higher 2s) as the original NV75X That have a similar launch but less spin. Love the feel launch of the original NV75X but want to bring the spin down a bit.

 

Let me know what you think! Thanks!

Shaft change is most likely not going to help especially if you love the feel of the shaft you got.

 

The biggest factor in the spin you get with a driver or wood is not the shaft but rather the face impact location.  So to address spin problems, you should always start by evaluating the face impact location and consistency.  Use foot powder spray or impact tape.  Don't rely on feel.

 

The second most important determining factor for the spin you get is the dynamic loft delivered at impact.  To high a spin can be caused by too much reverse shaft lean (hands too far behind the ball) at impact.  This is really a swing issue and usually not something a shaft change will fix.  It can be caused by 'flipping' or It can also be a side effect of trying to hit up or force a positive AoA without the proper instruction.  Ball position too far forward or tee height too high can possibly be contributors as well.

 

Shaft can have some influence on the dynamic loft but it's really quite small compared to the other factors.  And it can't lower spin without also lowering launch unless the change in feel causes a change in your swing.  So it's not the most reliable way to try to address launch/spin issues.  Choose a shaft based on feel and consistency of the results. Then it's always better to use the head loft to adjust the launch and spin.
