Loading the shaft
The transition from backswing to downswing affects the amount of pressure on the shaft, it can be quick or smooth and slow, everyone is different. It's not all about matching swing speed to shaft flex. This also affects the amount of lag in the release of the shaft, resulting in a major impact on strike and distance.
To see how this affects you, please book a fitting with us in the Pro Shop and see if you have the correct shafts to maximise your potential.
