I have a question:

If Tigerwood use an L flex shaft for his driver, can he hit more than 300 yards straight?

Just want to clearify...

Those with swing speed lower than supposed to be, using Stiff shaft, what will the ball flight/shape looks like ?'

And how about the other way around ? Higher swing speed using regular flex ?

hey yeah that's an interesting question.. i'm unsure of my swing speed too but i'm using a stiff flex now. wondering if the ball flight can tell whether the flex is appropriate or not.

found this on golf.about.com

If Your Flex Is Too Stiff
What effect does a too-stiff shaft have on your golf game?

1. The ball will probably fly lower and shorter for any given loft, compared to a properly fit shaft.

2. The ball may tend to go to the right, or fade side, for right-handed golfers because with a too-stiff shaft the clubface is harder to square (the clubface is more likely to be open at impact, in other words).

3. The shot may feel less solid, more like a mis-hit even if you make contact on the center of the clubface.

If Your Flex Isn't Stiff Enough
And what will happen if your flex isn't stiff enough?

1. The ball might fly higher for any given loft, compared to a properly fit shaft.

2. The ball may tend to go left, or to the draw side, for a right-handed golfer (because with a too-flexible shaft, the clubhead may tend to come into the ball closed).

3. Shots may tend to feel more solid, even when they aren't.

sounds logical enough!
