5 Questions on Shaft Fitting
This Article Features Photo Zoom
Here at Golf Tips HQ, we’re a blessed bunch who have experienced just about every type of shaft-fitting process available, from indoor launch-monitor sessions to outdoor, real-world testing. All of which have helped us choose the right shaft. With all the experiences we’ve had with the actual art of shaft-fitting, none were particularly useful in helping us prepare. The process of fitting is one thing, but getting ready is another.
For instance, we’ve asked ourselves questions like: How hard should I swing during a shaft-fitting? What if I’m not swinging well during the fitting—should I tell the fitter? And how will that affect my results? Should I get a shaft that’s one rung above my ability to help me improve, or should I stick with a shaft that’s primed for my current skill level? And if I do that, will I ever improve?
These are the kinds of questions we’ve had through the years, and with our accumulated experience, we’re here to answer on your behalf. Take a look at our top five questions, and don’t miss our expanded coverage of “Shaft FAQs” on golftipsmag.com.
