Does it make sense ?

Hi all, I am a newbie who made a mistake in buying a Adams Redline Driver (Draw) with a stiff shaft. I want to reshaft it with a Prolaunch BLue 65 (local pro shop recommends) to hopefully cure some of my slicing problems. I have a rather slow swing speed (93-97) and I can hit the ball pretty straight (sometimes draw) using the same driver with regular shaft. Am I better off buying a new driver or just reshafting the Adams ? Thanks in advance

Demo as many clubs as you can and go from there. That Grafalloy blue shaft is a good one, but it's not for everyone. I've never hit a club with one, but I hear it's pretty stiff. Some guys use a regular flex even though they use stiff normally.

Find a local pro shop that allows you to demo clubs and make your decision from there. If you find one you like go with it. If you find that you like your Adams clubs better or just the same, reshaft it.

What I do is demo clubs, then look for them on e-bay.

Kevin has the right idea. Demo as much as you can, and find a shaft/head combo that you like. If that happens to be the Adams, then so be it!

The shaft is what defines the club's performance in relationship to your swing. The Prolaunch, which plays less stiff than the regular or Nano Blue by the way, might be a good shaft for you. But, it might be what the pro shop has in stock too. If you get what i'm saying. "Oh ya, it's a great shaft. Perfect fit for you. And ONLY 65 bucks, plus install.":)

I think you'd be better of trying out a few clubs with different shaft combinations, and then seeking one out on E-bay. You'll save a pile of dough, and perhaps in the process, find that one sweet club that just oozes the confidence that everyone earns for.

Don't be concerned whether the shaft is factory installed or not. More often than not, factory installed shafts are installed incorrectly in terms of their spine. They just line up the graphics and go. Aftermarket shafts that are installed outside the factory may void warranty in some instances, but I think it's worth it in terms of the money that you're spending.

Good luck in your search. If you have any other questions, fire away....
