Just wondering what the swing weight on the drivers you THPers use and what is your happy medium. The reason I ask is because this new driver I have from CC with the M6 head and Paderson Ballistic shaft comes in at D6. I've been having trouble adjusting to that much swing weight.

Dont know. Dont care. Swingweight is one of those things I never worry myself with.

D3 ? I've never had it measured. it's a stock option from Callaway and that is all they list.

Mine is D4 with a counter balanced shaft. I also went to CC but did not but my shaft from them, I bought it myself. An Oban Kiyoshi 65G CB Stiff.

C9-D2, but don't really pay much attention to it. The reason I know it is because I have a swingweight scale. I can swing the C9 just as good as the D2. As one fitter told me, if you choke up at all you change the swingweight.

I have zero idea what the swing weight is of any club I have ever swung.

I like the D5 range, counterbalanced is not for me

Same for me, I couldn't tell you the swingweight, but seems to be working well

I honestly have no clue for driver or any clubs. If I played more and tweaked my clubs more often I’d probably be more aware. Nothing against those that do, props for knowing what works for you guys!

I built my driver until it felt comfortable, and they spec’d it at club champion and it came out at D6. certainly doesn’t feel super heavy to me though.

D6, have played lighter swing weight and have played heavier, this just feels comfortable for me.

Absolutely no idea, and absolutely no interest.
