What GolfWRXers are saying about ‘hitting it 300+ yards using a stiff shaft’

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing the use of a stiff shaft and whether it can provide both distance and accuracy. WRXer ‘ebibler’ kicks off the thread with this problem:

“I’ve been getting up to the tee lately and haven’t the slightest clue where my next drive is going. I have always played an X flex with a nice tight draw, but this year I seem to be hanging shots to the right(probably my hands or my swing but…….lol)

I currently play an F9 with the Atmos in X, it hits bombs, but they are useless unless I can control them. I’m normally around 3 Bills off the tee, any chance a Stiff flex would help? My town has zero options for fitting, so I come to you guys for help!”

And our members have been getting involved in the discussion with lots of advice offered up in our forums.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • Jc0: “Consider a heavier weight if you are having control issues. Stiffer and heavier usually help with control.”
  • mcounci2: “Not me, but one of the guys in our regular foursome has an incredibly smooth swing and is about 310-330 with a stock stiff hzrdus smoke black TS3.”
  • Leftlove94: “If I get into one I can hit it 300+. Not as frequently as I used too, which is why I’m hitting a Stiff shaft now. Had one drive last week at 305 but it was a touch downhill. Average drive was about 275-280 w/ 5 yards of fade. A draw adds 5-10 for me.”
  • Booker: “One of my playing partners hits a 910 d3 with the stock made for 72s ahina. Plays to a three handicap Doesn’t care about shaft flexes or weight, just kills it—174mph ball speed with this thing. Also still plays a vsteel spoon with a 75g NV, no problem carrying the spoon 265. Going on ten years with that driver and 22years with the spoon.”

Our members have been sharing photos of their first driver and how they feel about the club today.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • mogc60: “Hogan Speedslot persimmon. Had the 2 and 4 wood as well. My grandpa insisted I start playing golf at 15, and he gave me these.”
  • scooterhd2: “Still gaming my first driver (above photo). I’ve cheated on it a few times but keep going back to it. Worn grip, epoxy rattle, and all. Just goes straight for me.”
  • electroleum: “The first driver I had with a proper set of golf clubs was a MacGregor Dx Power Pyramid driver. Had the full matching set.”
  • jwhite86: “My first real driver was a Taylor Made 360… bought it right after the 500 series came out… let a friend try it at the range, and it immediately got a sky mark…”
