94jettameowpsst : You state that at Dicks, you were measured at 121 mph w/ the driver.
Keep in mind that at some Dicks, they often measure Ball Speed, not clubhead speed.
Clubhead speed is usually around 2/3rds of what ball speed is, so 80 mph.
If you are swinging at 121 mph, you would be driving the ball further than most pro golfers, who avg around 115? mph. At 80 mph clubhead speed, an R flex is closer to what you want, but every maker is different, so you have to test hit them at the store.

Serious question. I hit my irons relatively straight, can draw/fade however i want, but my woods and my? driver i hit high right. Consistently high right, every time. I have a regular maxfli set of clubs w/ driver and woods (yes i know they’re not great). I was messin with clubs at Dicks and decided to have my swing speed checked just for reference, swung normally, and to mu surprise averaged 121 on 5 swings w/ the driver. What shaft do i need? i think my face is open on impact w/ my driver

no that shaft is a regular its pretty whippy in my opinion a stiff? shaft would help your game.

The higher the swing speed, the more bend there is in the shaft. With this excess bend, your timing with the release becomes that much more critical. It’s much easier to be consistent with a stable club head as opposed to a whippy one. Thats why players like Bubba Watson use super stiff shafts. If you want more distance but have a slower swing speed, that “whippy” effect will help. But the? faster you swing, the more detrimental a flex shaft becomes.

typically the? longer the club the faster the swing. it doesn’t usually differ by too much between clubs but it does vary just a little bit. the most dramatic change in speed is almost always between the irons and the woods.

What difference would? it make if someone is using a RFlex shaft Driver but has much higher swing speed? Would he Slice or Hook more often…and why? Can you please explain this from the technical aspect? Thanks.

I think instead of launch angle you should have done apex height if you can and distance between? the two shafts.

@markcrossfields what about shaft torque? I’ve been playing some used mp32 irons w/ tt s300 shafts and am looking to change them out because as I’m progressing my ball flight is getting maybe a little too high. Anyway looking to get that explosive? piercing flight but not sure where to go.

@ Mark Crossfields. I want to know if you “spine” your club shafts? and does it really help you? play better?

Wow what a great demo. Very believable to the skeptics out here. Could? you possibly create another demo that illustrates shaft kick points. High versus low and the affect on ball flight. Thanks again Mark great work.

how about shaft length? Also, can you adjust lie angle at clifton hill? I was looking to experiment with a flatter club, so can you give a price for flattening a? single iron? Thank you.

No, my 6 irons club head speed is around 90mph and my driver swing speed is 112mph, I use x flex in driver and? project x 6.0 in my irons.

Reply

daeHeotatoPrM June 11, 2012 at 7:23 pm

Does swing speed vary between clubs at all? For example, if my club head speed is 85mph with a 7 iron, is? it likely to be 85 mph with my driver as well?
