low launch senior flex shaft
Posted 22 April 2012 - 02:07 PM
Realistically, it's not really going to happen. Senior flex shafts have deliberately flexible profiles for a reason - to enhance spin and flight time to maximise distance. Obviously there are some which are different to each other, but this is the general trend with these shafts. If you reduce the flex profile to lower ball flight you will lose distance - the lower the flight the more distance you will lose unless you increase your swing speed. Therefore, you need to evaluate which area is of the most value to your game. Is the lower flight worth sacrificing those vital yards, or can you increase your swing speed sufficiently enough to overcome this factor?The other option is to reduce the loft on your driver but the ultimate result will be the same. In summary to reduce flight, stiffen the shaft up, use a heavier shaft and lower the loft. Picking any specific shaft is irrelevant because we simply do not know the ins and outs of your game and your swing dynamics. Seeking advice from a professional fitter is highly recommended in your case.

I'll offer a point, one is when a qtr back throws the bomb down field for a touch down, he throws the ball up at almost a 45 degree angle. He s trying to keep the all airborn to carry that great distance. If you have access to a launch monitor even for a couple of swings to determine what's best go for it.
