I need some advice!! I got fitted throughout my bag, new 714 AP2's, SM6 wedges, two 816's hybrids and the driver and 3 wood!!
I hit everything great, 5.5 handicap, 94 mph swingspeed, smooth tempo, but hard transition!!
Fitted with 917 D2 w/rogue max x-stiff and here's why, numbers were phenomenal, 12 launch, 2,600 backspin and 15 yards further carry and 23 yards total distance!! But, man it is rigid when I get on the course, drives are high and low right!! I hit my 3 wood just as far as the driver, 245 to 255 after roll, the 917 3 is hot, but crazy my 3 wood is just as far as my driver!!
Well, here's where I might have made my mistake, went to a big box company that focuses only on golf!! We put a sticker on the face of the driver and my contact was on the heel consistently, so he requested that we cut off a half inch off my driver, the rogue max stiff, put a boatload of lead tape on it to get to D2 swingweight, played today and lucky if I hit it 220!! I even put a 16 ounce weight in it and would only get it to C9.5 and I hate lead tape!! Now I have a stiff rogue max at 44" that I can't get to D2 without putting a lot of lead tape on it!!
Very tempted to go back to the x-stiff and try to work with it!!
I have been fitted my one of the best in my area and he requested the x-stiff, but like I said it feels like rebar and everything is right!!
Comments or thoughts would be appreciated!! This is all about shaft IMO, I have the D2 8.5 set at B2 neutral!! And yes I have had lessons!!
Thanks in advance!!
