I was using simple descriptive language. The actual is from gradations where the shaft increases in diameter. From this you can compare how much tip trimming has been done. I reiterate that all 5 shafts are the same make and model. However they came from 3 different sources. 2 new via Jon, 2 from the leftovers of a fitting cart at Jons and one new bought from Drummonds.

 

Wouldn't you be better off taking them all back to Jon and having him work out which shaft (club fitting wise) works best with which hybrid??

By the way.
162m?
Arebyou taking the pisss or what?


I was at the range today doing the first study.
The 162m is obviously the rough average. Looking for 150, 162, 174 and 186 as the average result from the 4 clubs.
Aiming for a ball flight that means I can land on and hold the green in Summer with 24 and 27.
As soon as I can make sense of the combos I'll go to Keysie with real balls and check the distance gaps.



Yep that was pretty obvious where 162 came from.

You should be using real balls already.

The idea was for me to try and document the different combos. Then Jon and I went through the results. Discarded some outliers and established swingweight, length and fitness figures. Then he did a best fit and documented the likely changes to get a logical progression of shorter length and more stiffness.

Appropriately it seems like a bit shorter and a bit stiffer than standard is best for me.

Couldn't have been done without some data. Normal fitting is shaft A vs shaft B. Here we're fine tuning shaft A which works so it works better.

Now evaluation of distances to get the gaps I need. Will be oncourse and on the club's range when it's quiet and I can put some lasered targets down.

All very methodical and with the help of a professional fitter. Very lucky, couldn't get the level of service elsewhere.

Now getting the ball flight with all lofts to land and hold greens. Never had such great ball flight from 18 and 21 deg lofts with any clubs.

I was at the range today doing the first study.

The 162m is obviously the rough average. Looking for 150m, 162m, 174m and 186m as the average result from the 4 clubs.

 

 

 I am sitting here in the corner with Commish, but will ask questions anyway.

 

Q1 : Why do you need precisely those distances from each club

 

Q2 if want 150 m to 160m why not take the hybrid club which goes 170m -175m  and grip down about 2 inches open face and hit a nice soft cut or fade shot in.

 

Assumption to the questions

100 % full swings made with each hybrid perfectly executed every time.

ball is struck precisely on sweet spot of the club

no wind on day

relative humidity of air around 50 %

good to perfect flat lie on fwy

greens are soft enough to stop the ball on the spot it lands.

golf ball chosen on the day spins at required spin rate off club every time.
