The reason I ask is I stopped by a custom club maker and found out my my s300 shafts in my irons are playing at a 3X. I ordered them from Maxfli and requested STD loft/lie with S300's and they cut the shafts down so the tips are really strong. He says they do this because the head design gets the ball up quick so they stiffen the shafts to make up for it so they have a more normal ball flight. That's about the queerest thing Ive heard of! I only swing a 5-iron 87mph so there's no chance of me loading these shafts or having any kind of feel. I can't believe Maxfli thinks a 3X stiff shaft should be used EVER. Tiger and Keeney dont even have shafts that strong and they swing 120mph+. I think I know why I lost all my distance!
Well the club builder quoted me ~$400 to reshaft my irons (SW - 3iron) which includes the fitting and new grips but that seems expensive when I could get a brand new set for 700. He charges $700 for chrome KZG forged blades that are beautiful and fairly...
How difficult is it to reshaft a bore thru clubhead? Does anybody know a link where I can see it done or have instructions on it?
For instance, looking at a 905R and thinking about pulling the shaft. I know there is a bore plug, do those get destroyed when heating and pulling?
I think I also saw that the tip needs to be cut on an angle? Is that correct and what kind of angle?
I would assume that for most shafts I should leave them untipped, is that correct as well?
I was always under the impression that a wedge shot, when played a few inches off the back foot, would result in a higher trajectory.
But the other day, I was reading about a 72* wedge and they said that to get the best flop shot, you should have the ball off the front foot, and that will get the ball the highest
My question to you:
For the highest trajectory, Ball near the back or front foot? Or smack dab in the middle?
I'm gonna head out to the range this weekend to start working on my swing. I was going to pick up a 3 wood and driver this week but dont know what flex to choose.
I plan to get the TM 580XD 10.5* driver and either the TM r7 steel or TM Vsteel (following the advice of fellow forum member). Of course, If I see something cheaper, i'll probably pick that up first, but I am still confused on flex.
Its my understand that it has to do all with my swing. Something i haven't really developed yet. What flex should i pick?
Does your physical condition / height have anything to do with it?
I hit the local course this weekend in my continuing efforts to build some kind of game. Short 9-hole mostly very short par 3 holes in the 150-300 yard range. It's a GREAT course for a beginner such as myself.
This kind of course emphasizes the short game/irons. I hit them pretty well and overall was satisfied with my distance while my accuracy needs alot of work.
However, there are a couple par-4 holes where you can actually hit a driver off the tee. While I can hit balls OK most of the time at the range, I simply cannot hit off the tee on the course. Some kind of mental block or something but also I need much practice on my swing mechanics.
I want a backyard hitting cage that I can practice my drives with and my low irons as well. In looking at some prices this weekend, I've found they are VERY expensive to purchase ready to go. I am entertaining the idea of building my own - just a big 10' X 10' X 10' PVC cube shaped thing I can stand in and swing away. The most expensive part...
I hope this question makes sense. But say I wanted to figure out how long the shaft is in my driver, from where to where do I measure, and if I use those two points, do I have to add or subtract anything? Say I were to measure from the end of the grip to the top of the ferrule, wouldn't that be short of the actual length because some of the shaft length is underneath the ferrule and where the shaft and clubhead are joined?
I would love to turn the corner this year and start playing my 3 and 4 irons. I was at the range yesterday and I flushed a 3 iron about 230 right at the target and it inspired me to become more consistent with long irons.
Does anyone have any tips to becoming more consistent with my 3-5 irons? Maybe a link? Stance? Scoop vs. Downward blow? etc???
Thanks in advance!
