Pressing Graphite Shaft Against the Ground

Rizal K


Last weekend, a friend of mine pressed my 917D2 driver against the ground to feel the shaft flex. I could see the shaft flexing significantly. What I am afraid is he pressed it so hard that the performance of the shaft became affected. Will pressing the driver against the ground to test the shaft flex actually deteriorate shaft performance? FYI, I am using Diamana BF shaft which is about one month old. Thank you.

    If your friend bent it so much that you heard a crack then yes. If it only flexed an inch or so then I wouldn't worry about it.

    The short answer is no.
