shaft information.

Nick D

I recently was playing the 909D3 with a axivcore tour green 76x. I will be getting or ordering the new 913 but was wondering about shafts. The place where i go to do my fitting does not have any shaft heavier than a mid 70's weight. They have the diamana in the mid 70g and the phenom also at the weight. I would like to possible jump up the the mid 80 to tame my very quick transition in my swing. Judgeing for my old shaft would i stay in the x flex range if i jumped up 10grams or if you go up in weight do you want to also tame the flex. My ss is 115-117. i did like the 76x but was wanting a little heavier to tempo my transition. was thinking the ahina or phenom or rip all in the mid 80g. which shaft also is a good fit.

                                                                                                                   Thanks Nick

    I would encourage you to find a place to test the shafts. Swinging a shaft 10 grams heavier just might slow down the swing speed a bit. Not saying it will take you out of an X and into a S but it is something i recommend trying. I do know the Diamana +White  is available in a 82 gram version so try it out! Be careful of torque ratings as well when it comes to different shafts.  Simply, the only way to truly know what fits you best, you need to hit them. 

    All the best,

    Thank you Dustin for the reply, but that is where my issue stands. i have no options to try a heavier shaft in a x or in a s flex.. The two main places for me to do my fittings in this area go no higher than a 76g V2.  The highest X flex for me to try is in a RIP 60. Yes both places have the phenom 70 and diamana + 70, but no x flex and nothing heavier.

    When I hit the 913 I took my shaft from my 910. You could always look for someone selling a 80's gram x and take it to try. If it doesnt work you can always re-sale it. Just an Idea.
