Okay, here's the story ...
Got the club today. (thanks for the head cover, btw)
Went to the range that allows me to see the ball beyond 275 yards
(ya never know).
Well, low-and-behold, off come the most incredible
drives ever. There was a fence at 275. I was single bouncing
into the fence (no tail wind). The stiffness matched my swing
perfectly. The high kick-point kept the ball at the right trajectory
and in control.
Thanks for the recommendation to use the HP/M.
A short while ago you helped me to choose a shaft to reshaft
975D driver. We went with the Composite Dynamics HP/M shaft.
got it back from my guy and used it for the first time on Saturday
the range. It feels fantastic. The stiffness is right on for
me and I
am getting exactly the kind of ball flight that I was looking
this is just a note to let you know how pleased I am with how
turned out. This is really going to help my game and I am telling
anyone who will listen about your site and this shaft.
Thanks for helping me out.
Today I played in a Chamber of Commerce scramble with the new
driver. For the first time out it was great. The temp was 75
degrees and I hit several drivers that carried 270 yards. They
landed in the 6" rough with no roll. The ones that landed
in the fairway got some roll. It is going to take some practice;
however, I think it will be great. Flex and overall weight seem
fine. (Zeider head with CDI UL shaft).
I received the H/PM shaft and have installed it in the 4+ warbird
and it is the best combination I have tried so far. Would the
shaft work well in an intamidator 300 driver and 5 wood? Thank
you for your help.
I thought you might enjoy this story. I am a former
PGA Professional and
today, still do my own club fitting, repair etc. I recently was
in my local
high end retail golf store. I was in the market for a new driver
narrowed it down to a Great BB. Of course
I would have replaced the shaft, if not immediately, relatively
soon. I have
been a Harrison shaft user for years.
As I was looking though the bins of demos and used equipment
which, I normally>do if I'm buying pro-line merchandise. A
BBB is sticking out with this unusual
shaft in it. Now, I was not in the market for a BBB. However,
I said to myself
"take it to the range anyway". I've never heard of
this shaft company
"Composites Dynamics", (yea OK!!) but you never know.
Besides the head was
brand spanking new and it was priced at $189. Frankly a deal
shaft (again a shaft that would get yanked the minute I thought
I had enough
time between rounds to let the epoxy cure)
Now we all know, (don't we?) the shaft is the heart of any golf
particularly so at 70 - 130mph. I have never in my life, hit
a shaft so sweet.
Also much to my surprise when looking up the retail on it, (worth
penny and more, I might add) I of course outright ripped off
the shop whom
sold it to me. I would have paid $400 for this used BBB despite
I knew nothing
about the shaft company. IT FELT JUST THAT PURE!!
So here is a tip to those who want a deal and good equipment.
existing driver head, or go find a used model of the one you
want to buy. Go
to your local custom club fitter or a PGA Professional whom is
a custom club
fitter (NOT ALL ARE!!!) One that has a swing speed analyzer.
Get your MPH
write it down and order a shaft to with the right flex from this
your sure about your head selection. Buy two shafts. You will
go nuts if you
are stuck without it for more than a day I assure you. Finnally,
you will end
up with a far superior product than "off the rack"
at a reasonable price.
Even better yet, Get that local custom club fitter to start carrying
know there expensive but take it from someone who knows or at
least thought he
knew about golf shafts. These guys have something here!!!!! I
company all the luck in the world, it is a competitive crap shoot
This company is producing quality, sweet sweet quality. My only
is the lack of Model / Flex branding. (It may me marked under
For those of you whom are interested, this was a Midnight Pearl
(I think Tour
Version) 45 Inches to sole, 6.8 Frequency, (approaching X flex
) I have no
idea if tipped. I will be ordering a spare.
Hey Harrison, the rest of you I won't name, yes including YOU!!!!
Manufacturers......... THIS IS YOUR WAKE UP CALL!!!!!!!!!
Thanks for all of your help. Online technical support for golf
clubs is a
great thing. When you try to ask the various club companys' tech
to go about changing their clubs to meet your own specs they
you. Or tell you to buy one of their other clubs! This has been
surprise. Can't wait to get this put together!
