Decent Anti-left Shaft Recommdations


CDM
 Share

Recommended Posts

Baseline stats:I swing between 105-108 with my driver. I have always had a late release/lag in my swing, now and then when I stand on it if snaps, not bad hoenstly but it is not controled.

 

I am trying to find a 60-65 gram X flex shaft that is considered anti-left. Current shaft is a Fubuki "X" flex in that is in a Mach Speed Black (Round) I can get this shaft to carry about 270-280 and roll out about 20-30 yards so pretty happy other then the occasional lefties. *Have to love Colorado AIR...

I am not looking to speed $300 for a shaft as the driver new only cost me $150. It is a really good driver if you can get past the sound on impact... :good: it is frozen rope when hit on the screws.!!

 

 

 

EDIT: Just looked up the specs for the Stock Fubki shaft. Very light (54 Grams) where I am used to 63-65 and the torque is 6.9...!!! No wonder it feels flippy at times I step on it.

Anything that is extremely stiff in the tip, mid and butt section are pretty much anti-left and launch low. I had a TP6HD and it took a lot of work to get that sucker to even draw but that shaft seems to be out of your price range. I don't think your swing speed is 108 if you're carrying it 280. My average carry with driver is 285+ and my swing speed is 120 when I swing hard. Your probably closer to 115. I consider the whiteboard, matrix HD line and the ahina anti-left.

I was almost dead on with a Sold swing at 108 on the trackman, not pushing it really hard. As I noted living in Colorado helps as the ball will carry at least 20 yards more in the air.

I will look up the shafts you mentioned. Based on reviews from the forums the Harrison Saga looks interesting.

That Matrix shaft is $500-1000 looking online....:blink:


Ok so I noted "cheap" but I was thinking $100-200 range. this Machspeed driver was only to finish out the year and mess around with honestly. I am waiting for the R11 to drop and will pick up just the head over the winter. Then spend $250-500 on the right shaft for next seasons tourneys..

Sorry I should have clarified my price point.

You can get a new whiteboard for around 200 last time I checked.

Harrison Saga tends to play soft to flex, in my opinion. It may or may not be what you are looking for. I have a 60x in a 9015D right now, although that head is anti-left itself. Also check out a Grafalloy Epic (heavier weight) or a ProLaunch Red.

Never played with a UST and I think I can get one for a good price...

See if you can find a Miyazaki C. Kua 59 pull. It's stiff in the butt and mid, so it will be stable in your hands and not kick too hard up high. The tip is stable, yet responsive to keep launch and spin reasonable. Lots of distance from this shaft in my testing. It won't go left. The X is extremely stout. You may want to find a 59S and tip it a bit. It should be responsive to tipping.

The Talamonti X Stiff might be a good fit. It's not expensive at all.

But Im not sure how much a shaft can be "anti-left". If your face is closed or your path or hands come that way, you are going to go left - shaft or not... I get what you are asking for - but I have a hard time imagining a shaft making enough a difference on R/L. Have you considered opening the face on your driver a degree or two?

Good point above on the hands. The lefts I have are only when I step on it. Loading the stock shaft I can feel it releasing. Tthe ball flight starts outs right (10-15 yards) of the target, then goes out about 200 yards or so, then starts coming left and I would say about 30-40 yards..! It still goes about 250 or so but then it RUNS out like 30 yards!!!

If I "slow" the tempo of my swing a bit it will go dead straight or the 10 yard fade, which what I prefer.

Could it be just the torque of the stock shaft? I looked at my old shafts and they range from 2.9 - 3.8 torque range and the stock shaft has [b]6.9[/b]? Could that be the real issue?

I really do like the ball flight it is very pentetrating. Heck maybe I should just buy a real Fubuki shaft with torque around 3.0ish and low launch and see?? Look for a pull as noted previous??

Consider the UST Axivcore Tour Green. It has a stiffer tip section than something like a Prolaunch Red, and if you go with the 75g model you will have lower torque, which can be very significant for minimizing a hook tendency.

You generally want a "stout" overall bend profile especially in the tip section and also low torque. Axivcore Tour Green 75x

Get a Speeder 757 and be done with it.

The 757 was for a LONG time THE shaft to play, saw a lot of tour usage and has a few notable wins to its name...it was, however, dethroned by the Mitsubishi Diamanas which now seem to be losing footing to the Graphite Design Tour AD series.
