PostSubject: FW & Hybrid shaft suitability   Mon Aug 04, 2014 10:54 pm

Hi bros,
Need to consult you all guys for help

I'm got my driver shaft switched to ALDILA Phenom stiff 60g and pretty much like the feel and performance of the shaft.
Compared to my previous RBZ matrix Ozik stock regular shaft, my observations were that the distance is slightly lesser (possibly due to a less whippy shaft) but better control.

My question is now that I like Aldila phenom for my drivers. Does it make sense that my FW and hybrids use this same brand of shaft for the respective clubs?

Would it improve my game for FW? Or should I do another round of fitting?

I'm using Xhot FW and RazrX 3H hybrids and Xhot 5hybrid and 6 hybrid. All regular in stock shafts

Thanks

I also use the Phenom RIP stiff 60g shaft for one of my drivers.  I haven't changed my fairway wood shafts to the same brand, as I have a lot of clubs and I hit my existing fairway woods quite well.  I think the more important thing is to ensure the weight of the shafts are not too different.

Noted bro

Don't mind asking
If your driver is 60g Phenom
What is your FW and hybrid weight?

I'm also considering abt the torque and kick levels
Thinking if I should get something similar to the phenom 60S

You'll probably need to consider the following factors:

(1) Weight of the clubhead also affects the club's swingweight and "feel".
(2) You may have different swing characteristics (speed, tempo etc) for different clubs.

Looking at the equipment used by the pros, few of them use the same model / make across all their drivers, metals and hybrids. That should tell you something.

shaft fitting is tricky and requires experience and technical knowledge. best is to get fitted by pro. may be, money well spent.
