I thought you were sold on regular flex?
I love the feel of the regs, I just cant keep my move at the top smooth enough to have enough consistency using them. I am really starting to find I play my best when I am my most aggressive. Both from a playing standpoint and a swinging one. When I play this way short, heavy, and stiff give the best results. I am very quick at the top and really release the club hard. For the last few years I had been trying to fix that and have begun to realize that it doesnt need to be fixed. I swing hard and fast. Its natural to me, I will no longer fight anything that is natural to me, regardless of how far from textbook my swing is. It is what it is, and it works. I am done with tinkering with my swing, and working on it.
Does this mean everyone should use X flex? Not a chance. If you dont have a hard move at the top, and I mean hard, coupled with a late release then they will not work. Most people are still better off with R flex shafts.
