You hit your driver well. What's the problem?

Nature of the game. Always something to improve.

And there is always an itch for something new. Just trying to scratch the itch without getting a whole new club.

Here is your first problem. If this isn't the first thing someone points out, they aren't too knowledgeable in shafts...

Any shafts made for a particular company is "watered down" or "sub-par" compared to the actual shaft. What it says isn't what it actually is (sorry I don't know the specifics on the variance). Do NOT get a shaft that is made "exclusively for" someone.



Best advise so far. Shafts are different by weaves and weight. Low weighted shafts with tight weaves are going to be expensive.

The matrix is a high grade cross-woven which lowers torque. For a manufacturer to use this shaft as there's....such as Taylor Made, they only need to wove their shaft 1 inch as the matrix does and they can put matrix on the shaft. It is night and day on the difference of the off market and original.

re: Golf genuises - opinions on a new driver shaft


If you want a shaft that is going to make a difference, then you are going to have to spend more money. Most all shafts under $150 for a driver are not that much apart. Check out Harrison Mugen Prototype Blue shaft. Its probably $200 or so, but this shaft is a great shaft for the price. It hits like a $400 shaft. It will help will low ball flight as well. I have a 2x that is cut 1/2 inch short and it is a BEAST!

make for damn sure the shaft is not "made exclusively for"


honestly? I mean, the shafts aren't junk - they may not be the same as the real Diamana shaft, but damn.

Seriously. They aren't worth a shite...the specs are off in almost every aspect from what it says on the shaft, because they are mass produced and offered as a stock shaft.

Let me put it this way...it's like you getting a care package for a tournament, where it is advertised that a sleeve of ProV's will be in the package. You find once picking it up and hitting them they aren't actual ProV's, but X-Out's.

not exactly correlative, but you get the point. The weight is usually lighter than specified, either stiffer or regular than specified, and less torque than specified. They are just off-brandish. Doesn't matter to some people, but people who are extremely particular like me it matters too.
