Different shaft weight but same stiffness
I’m trying to decide on a specific driver shaft and at the moment determine if the 64g or 73g shaft is ideal. Swing speed is ~106...Carry distance is ~250-255 on the monitor.

Any other thoughts. The results from both were similar.

re: Different shaft weight but same stiffness
Heavier shaft has an effect on the center of gravity which may lower ball flight and spin and I don't really know what I'm talking about.

re: Different shaft weight but same stiffness
I just did a driver fitting. Apparently the shaft I had was really light. Going to a heavier shaft with the same stiffness allowed me increase my spin and to carry about 15-20 yards further on average. Overall distance was about the same and accuracy improved.

I tried several different shafts as weight distribution can be different as well before I found the most optimal one for me.

I kept my original head as trying different ones really didn't improve a whole lot.

re: Different shaft weight but same stiffness
Usually the heavier shafts will have a "stiffer profile". The CPMs may say stiff, but the heavier shaft will usually have a higher kick point and lower torque.

Lighter =/= longer.

Correct, I knew this...I'm just trying to decipher any other things I'm missing.
