I know that so many of these threads become "what shaft should I get" and I don't want this to be a "Get Fit" posting. I do that too often actually.
Ive become a total Ho on this site and love it. And because of it I've bought my own equipment and now work on my own clubs. As a result I sometimes just want to tinker and experiment even if it means selling at a loss (I consider that my rental fee).
So to my point. I've never been a great fairway player as my swing speed isn't outstanding (95 or so driver). I don't launch fairways well. So what happens is fitters put me in tip soft fairways to get the ball in the air. The problem is that I end up going left with them very consistently. Now, I understand that some of this is swing flaw and I'm not objecting to it, but my miss with every other club in my bag right now is to miss right, because I've made a swing change and it's weakened my grip substantially (still a bigtime work in process but slowly improving). My tempo is very smooth, slow takeaway, I don't load the shaft aggressively, in fact I play my driver at D8 and irons at D3/4 just to help with loading (and I like the feel of heavy). I had the EvenFlow in my driver and I wasn't in love with it's loading - feels pretty dead to me, which was a bummer.
I play PX LZ iron shafts now and they are really fantastic for me. I play a Tensei V2 Orange (the rare one) off the tee and again, no issues left. Of course both have firmer tips and get kick elsewhere in the shaft. But I am still lost with the fairways. I bought the Rogue 4W and HW, (Callaway recommended Synergy Blue 60 regular) because I saw the success everyone is having. And when I time one out right, they go like crazy. I don't want to get rid of the heads. But they go left on me way too much. That synergy blue just kicks like hell and I can't keep it from going left. To the point that they are out of the bag for now. (I'm editing here to say Im playing the club at D4 - as the first replies said maybe I need the shaft to be heavier)
So after all this longwindedness my question. Can you recommend a more appropriate profile than just "soft tip" for a fairway shaft that might not have a tip kicking like crazy but doesn't play stout, because I can't launch anything stout. I dont need a specific shaft recommendation (though I'd love them if you have one), but more a profile thought. I keep looking at the Proforce V2HL but enough reviews have said stout to give me real pause. It's like I need a soft profile but firmer tip I guess, but still something that helps promote launch in a fairway.
Any thoughts really really appreciated.
