Good to hear. Just wanted to make sure the loft and shaft were appropriate to your swing. Just seen to many people buy top dollar clubs cheap, only to find it does not match their abilities.Grungels said:its the one they told me to buy when they tested my swing out
Don said:Grungels: you mentioned that you have been playing golf for 8 months and score around 100-107. That tells me something about you, but what is needed here, is what your swing speed is and what launch angle you are hitting your current driver. The correct launch angle depends on your swing speed/ball speed. The lower your ball speed, the higher your launch angle needs to be. Grafalloy makes two blue shafts, the original Blue, and the ProLaunch Blue. One has a low bend point, the other a mid bend point. The Prolaunch Blue would tend to launch the ball higher than the Blue. If you have the Blue with a 8.5* shaft, my guess is you will be hitting low drives that will not go as far as you might like. I have a 8.5* Cleveland Launcher, with a low bend point shaft, and it's a pretty nice driver for when it's windy. But my 12* driver will allow me to carry the ball a good 30 yards farther. My swing speed tops out at 108, and I still see a big improvement useing the higher lofted driver. I think you need to get tested and see what your swing speed is, the try a 8.5* driver along side a 10.5 and a 12* driver. See what gets you the most carry distance and the most fairways.
