I live 5 hours from the closest fitting center. I've been fit before by a Callaway demo truck four years ago. They made a set for me including driver. I've traded that driver since. I have a high 80s to 90 swing. Got tested at Edwin watts last year. Hit the ball low to mid trajectory. Looking at GBB Epic. Which shaft would be best for me?
@Banditgolf,A low to mid trajectory and mid 80 to 90 mph SS I would think that you would need a regular flex at most or even an A or also known as a light or senior shaft. If it is all possible I would try to hit the Epic with both flexes to see which one performs best. There is a saying that the best shaft is the lightest one you can control (tightest ball dispersion + longest length). This might be a little bold but at the driving range if you see somebody hitting an Epic you may ask them what flex shaft they are using an if its a regular or senior ask if you could hit a few balls with it (your balls of course). If a stranger asked me this I would not mind at all but I know some people would.
Without knowing your spin numbers and you said you were low to mid launch. It's hard to really say. Different shafts are different when it comes to flex there isn't a standard measurment. I am of the opposite school of thought than CarlT when it comes to choosing a shaft. I think you should find the stiffest shaft that you can comfortabley get a flex on with your normal swing. The best thing to do would be to go to your local club who has a callaway cart and see if they will let you try out a couple of the shafts. I have a friend who tried out the T800 and he had to go up to a stiff flex on it and his swing speed was 91-94 mph. A couple of other shaft that I would recomend you take a look at are the Fujikura Speeder Evolution II TS 665 Graphite and the Matrix Speed Rul-Z 50 Type A. That all depends on your swing characteristics ie. if you have a fast transition come under or over the plane and what your spin numbers.
I think the most important part of the golf club is the shaft and that a proper shaft fitting should be done. I usually buy my shafts for my drivers seperate from the driver head itself. Just so i can make sure that I got the max preformance.
Good luck Finding the right shaft.
Any Recs to get better numbers ?
