i'm 49 years old and a 5 handicap with a driver swing speed is 100 - 105.
I love my 910 D2, 10.5, with the Diamana 'ilima shaft.
I then bought the same shaft for my 910H 21 degree hybrid. However, I'm constantly hooking the ball.
I also have the Graphite Design YS 6+ in my 906 15 degree 3-wood and 904 19 degree 5-wood. I can easily hook these also.
I'm looking for a new shaft for the 3 wood, 5 wood, and hybrid.
I know your pain...Yout lose distance by playing a shaft which is TOO soft....consider going to to a STIFF shaft or even X-flex shaft. You will not lose as much distance as you think, plus you will gain consistecy and FAIRWAYS...the most important stat! I will bet money an X-flex will help you out...Everyone says X-flex is for pros...B.S., X-flex works for me, Diamana 73g X-flex, for a 910 D2 101 swing speed, average is the bomb. The 910 D2 spins WAAAY too much!! Confirm w/ Titlest Staff experts......no argument!
Everybody please understand a couple of things -- 1) not all shafts, heads, clubs do the same thing for every player. Most of the time we ( professional club fitters) can explain why but sometimes we can't. But if you shots are being measured on a launch monitor outdoors hitting from real grass using Pro V golf balls...then that is all the proof we need.
2) Most good fitters do not charge for fitting if you buy clubs from them. Or they might charge about the price of a lesson. Which is well worth it considering all the questions I see here on the TT site. And also how much you may spend on clubs.
3) It is BEST to get fitted by a good instructor that can help you with the decision of " change the club or my swing".

I dont think so Steve.... we'll call you Steve on the Ball... heck two identical clubs can feel and play differently. But i do believe the shaft is the heart of the club and well worth the price to be properly fitted. And I mean heads and swings matched to the shaft.
