shaft recommendations

Hi Guys. I'm looking for some shaft recommendations for my driver. My current driver is a R7 TP 10.5* with mits rayon lt-70 stiff shaft. I'm looking to change shafts as I feel this shaft is a little too heavy and stiff. My natural ball flight is a low/mid with a draw. I am looking to get higher launch/less backspin on my drives.

 

I'm currently looking into a diamana red 63 red board. I'm not sure if I should get the stiff or x flex. By this website http://www.golfworks.com/product.asp_Q_pn_E_MR0002W,

it looks like the only difference between the stiff and x flex is that the x flex is 2 grams heavier. is this true?

 

I'm open to any other recommendations for shafts. There's a lot of them out there, I'm just not sure which one would best suit me.

 

 

 

P.S

 

I've never had my SS clocked but I think its around the mid 90's. My swing is a slow, smooth tempo. (I carry my 5 iron 175) hit my driver around 250-260 yds.

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!!

For a smooth swing with moderate speed, there's little need to go to a very expensive shaft with median torque rating. It does sound like you might fight a hook so a sloppy low $ shaft is not the answer either. The best shaft I've used for players like yourself is the Accra Tour 60. I would go with a tipped R over a straight S to firm up the lower portion of the shaft. The butt is much softer in R so you'll retain a responsive feel. Be sure your clubmakers measures the Bottom Bore to Groundline dimension in order to properly install the shaft.

 

Just a suggestion to explore :yahoo:

It looks like that you want to make your power transferring smooth from your hands through your shaft to the club head. I personally try a number of shafts and have some feedbacks for you.

 

Diamana - it is very good shaft for the shaft performance, feeling and trajectory. No matter which type you pick up, it won't let you down. You might consider 63 level shaft for better swing tempo. M63 has higher trajectory than S63. But if your swing is smooth, M series will have great hitting feeling since the tip of the M series is stiff that makes the club hit very smooth like kicking. Both types could allow you load your power smoothly without having bad or uncomfortable feeling.

 

AXIV 6568M Orange color - AXIV's mother company is Mamiya that is the OEM company for UST Proforce V2. This characteristic of the shaft is designed tip soft with butt stiff. It makes you hit the ball higher and deliver very soft hitting feeling for using this shaft.

 

Fujikura Zcom TW-64 S - The shaft has similar performance and hitting feeling as AXIV 6568M, but I like this one better than 6568M. Its trajectory is also high. The price is higher than 6568M, but hitting feeling and consistency are much better. It is the best one for tip soft with butt stiff shaft.

 

I hope it helps to make the right decision. I strongly suggest that you can try all the shafts you prefer to know the hitting feeling, performance and trajectory. This way will help you make the best decision.

Dont forget to give the Grafalloy Prototype NT a try! This is one of the longest shafts I have ever hit. It seems to fly around 10 yards further than many shafts in a driver. Also has a nice kick, although you may want to go with the regular, as most grafalloy shafts play around 1/2 flex stiffer than average.

 

If cost is no option, I think you can do no better than the trusty speeder 757! This is the smoothest-feeling driver shaft I have ever used. It is also unusually straight and can stand a fast swing when you feel like going after one.
