The Right Shaft to maximize your Distance.

Trying to get the right shaft flex to maximize your driving distance and accuracy is a complicated business.  However, we have launch Monitors like Trackman, FlightScope and GC2 to make our job a whole lot easier.  Factors to consider.  Clubhead speed, shaft flex, shaft type, shaft weight, shaft length, launch angle, ball speed and total carry distance.  So to say I swing at 100 mph will not help.  Unless I take all these other factors into consideration.  Randy of Fried Eggs Golf tries to help, but you need to see a club-fitter in the final analysis and be prepared to spend a couple of hours testing to come up with something close to what you need.  As this is a tiring process, you may want to split it up into two days instead of trying to fit in all in one day! Good hunting!

It’s experiment time… I use a Ping G driver and three Alta 55 shafts in Stiff, Regular, and Senior to see how flex affects ball-flight.
