@  ROBOPTI : (14 July 2014 - 06:07 PM) 2 CALLAWAY KINGS OF DISTANCE HEADS UP FOR GRABS - SEE DETAILS BELOW
@  petter7 : (14 July 2014 - 01:14 PM) I believe Mizuno measurements are without the grip on the club vs. Titleist with the grip installed.
@  HossOnMoss : (14 July 2014 - 10:42 AM) Correct. They measure differently and are actually the same length.
@  TJR : (14 July 2014 - 05:45 AM) Melonhead - 38" (Titleist) 37.75" (Mizuno) - difference is probably the way the clubs are measured.
@  MN NICE : (14 July 2014 - 05:27 AM) MONDAYS ARE FOR SUCKERS!
@  melonhead : (13 July 2014 - 09:56 PM) What is standard length for a 5 iron guys?
@  yardsonthetable : (12 July 2014 - 06:21 PM) Thanks!

Hello Everyone,
As I get older and my swing slows, I'm thinking that a softer tip driver and possibly three wood shaft would benefit my swing speed (or lack there of). Any ideas on high quality shafts that might work for a 100 mph swinging old guy? Thanks in advance.

Xcon5 for the driver. It isn't super high end, but Aldila NVS in a 65 or 75g for the 3W might work.

100 mph isn't swinging it so slowly that you should need something softer in the tip based just on clubhead speed unless you are just low spin, low launch by nature of your swing mechanics. Regardless of age, a softer tip shaft will not necessarily increase distance unless you really need that.

That said, the Graphite Design QuattroTech series are good options for anyone who needs more spin. Diamana Blue Boards may even work as well unless you need something really soft as would the Matrix Code line. It just depends on how extreme you need to go.

A friend of mine switched to a redboard in his driver and immediately gained yardage - in fact, he qualified for the US Senior Open and Am last year after not even qualifying for the state am the previous 5 or so years. He thinks that switch had a lot to do with it - of course, the belly putter had something to do with it, too!

The redboard is pretty extreme, though - especially if you're still tripping trip digits in SS (of course, my friend is as well). But it would NOT be my recommendation to START with a redboard. The best thing you can do is find yourself a good fitter with the appropriate tools - as Hoss says, you may just be very low spin. My SS is around 110 and I need a shaft/head combo that will give me a little more spin as well - I don't understand the reasons why, but that's how I've been fit...I know it's a tired refrain around here, but spend the $100 - $150 to get fitted properly - you won't regret it.

From what I've read (haven't hit it....yet)the new 'ilima might be a good alternative. Softer tip, more geared for smoother swingers, low spin.........not to mention way cool graphics.

In fairway woods you might consider Fuji SAPPHIRE, TRTI-46, PRO-Ti 857, or Pro95.

A newer Altus might also work for you.

I fully concur with the X-Con 5 suggestion for the driver. I still swing in the 110-113mph rage and haven't found anything better.

Try an Oban Revenge!! The N°6 with a 4 flex would fit perfectly for what you want.

Easy to move right to left and long with lil effort. very smooth shaft.

Thanks for all the input. I was hoping someone might suggest an xcon 6 in a 3 wood head. I have a mint tour issued Big Bertha 3+ with a Fuji 757 tour spec stiff that plays way too stiff for me. I was thinking of trying the xcon 6 in that head, I just don't want to ruin the shaft by cutting it down and not being able to re-use it. I'm going to post a question in another forum to see if anyone has used the xcon 6 in a 3 wood head. If anyone reads this and has tried that combo, please chime in with your thoughts. Thanks again.

The X-Con 6 is a very different shaft than the X-Con 5. Torque is way lower. Where did your "soft tip" proclivities go?

Those of us who pay attention to ACCRA have noted the evolution of their line. This year they added an "RT" model (responsive tip). Reports from their Tour Rep have always been that most Tour Pros don't bother to "match" their driver and fairway metal shafts. Not only that, they found the Tour Pros seemed to end up with surprisingly soft tip model shafts in their fairways. That was said as the reason that ACCRA is now going with a "next weight up, same flex value, no tip trim" model.

If you insist on that "high end" position, one shaft that has not been mentioned is the ACCRA RT in your choice of weights and flexes. If you just want to take a flyer on a soft tipped shaft that you would "never" put into a fairway metal - I went with a GD YS 6 in a Sonartec that tingled my scalp.

Have we been "wrong" all along by just taking the next weight up in a given shaft model and tipping it 1". That's been the standard operating procedure for years. This could signal a shift in the "conventional wisdom".
