Need a stiffer fairway shaft


Recommended Posts

Please help
I just had my 85X Prolaunch shafts installed by a friend who has been making clubs for 20 years. We were trying to frequency match these to my driver. My driver cpm was at 264 and according to the charts that he uses that was a little higher than x which is perfect for me. Knowing this my fairway woods needed to be around the 270's. Unfortunately these cycled at 256 (after tipping what we could). :) This was a solid stiff on his charts. So I need someone to help me out and give me some shafts that will cycle where I need them to. The prolaunches are weaker than X according to his system. So any help is good help here guys, Joe let me know what you think. Thanks a lot

Oh and today I found out why my sw has been crappy lately...4* flat 2* weak. Can anyone say high and right?? :) So maybe now at 56* and 2* upright I will hit it well again. :beee:

This is a great reason why I don't like using butt CPM to determine playing characteristics.

 

If you wanted to build a back up driver and had a second Grafalloy Axis and a head that weighs exactly the same, then butt cpm are a great way to build two clubs that will feel and perform almost identically if not perfectly identically.

 

Comparing a prolaunch with a T60 to a grafalloy Axis with a SQ max is like comparing a mouse to an elephant, they're completely different from head to toe. You're comparing a stiff tipped shaft with a (relatively) soft tipped shaft, it's not going to work.

 

What about the prolaunch's playing characteristics don't you like?

 

Now another issue could be the fact that the prolaunch's bend profile doesn't fit your swing. That's a real possibility, especially if you're liking the Axis . . .

 

If that's the case, you might want to read Joe Kwok's article here:

I have not hit them yet so I don't know how they feel. I was just concerned because the clubmaker said that because we couldn't get the cpm where we need to it would be a temporary fix. And I would hate to spend more money buying new shafts...again. I will be hitting the range today so after I hit some I'll habe to come back with a verdict and see what you guys have to say.

 

Now what shafts would play the same as the Axis for my fairway woods because I love the feel of it and would like to have the same in my woods?
