I'm building a new set of clubs, have ordered new vokey wedges, and the driver is next.  i'm an average player, who hits the driver 230-240yds with a mid, sometimes low trajectory.  I currently have an 8 year old titanium 983e @ 9.5deg.  i have a natural fade/hook, and would like to get  more distance and straighten out my drives.  i have work to do on my swing, but would still like to have a great driver set up.  I would like something a little more intense than the stock shaft.  any help or suggestions for the proper shaft would be greatly appreciated.

With all the custom shaft options available, it is tough to suggest what shaft will ultimately give you more distance and straighter drives.  I recommend looking at the characteristics of the shafts (kick point, weight, torque), comparing that to your current shaft and ball flight, and scheduling an appointment with a Club Fitter who can analyze your ball flight first hand.  The link below will take you to where you can view all the custom shaft offerings.

I have battled hooks my entire playing career.  I was fitted for a D2 with an Oban Devotion shaft.  This thing is awesome.  However, I went to a 10.5 degree because the shaft is lower launching, or so said the rep.  That offset the traditional 9.5 i have always had.  I also learned that the loft on the bottom of the club isn't as important as the combo with the shaft giving proper launch. I have a great trajectory now with a shaft I have to work to turn over.  Give it a try, I highly recommend it.
