Titleist 915 recommended shafts

STeasdale

Hi,

I'm due to be *** by a PGA, however I wanted to discuss it here first. I have just been fitted for some new miz JPX900 forged irons and was showing as having a club head speed of between 94-97 mph. Can you recommend what type of shaft you think I may need for a titleist 915 (d2 or d3)?

Many thanks

    Need a lot more info here. I'm in the same range and use S because my transition is fast. I would recommend the 30 in 30 that Titleist provides

    The type of shaft you use depends on a lot more than swing speed. Sure, we can eliminate shafts based on swing speed (if you're a senior swinging at 70 mph, obviously you won't be able to torque an X shaft effectively, for instance). But the shaft that will optimize your ball flight, and therefore distance, will also be determined by your tempo, your attack angle and your natural trajectory.

    If you have a smooth, long tempo you may get more raw distance from an R flex, even at your swing speed, because of the greater flex you'll achieve. If you have a high ball flight, a mid-high kick point will lower your trajectory a bit.

    There's a lot to consider. I recommend you get fitted.
