How to choose the right golf shaft flex?
Let me say, that every golf shaft company varies in their flex ratings and measurements. This chart is designed to give you a basic guideline for most golf driver shafts.
What can you expect if you choose the wrong golf shaft flex for your unique golf swing?
1. Too stiff - You are playing a golf driver shaft flex that is too stiff. What can you expect? Your trajectory will be low and to the right with a loss in distance potential.
2. Too soft - You are playing a golf driver shaft flex that is too soft, what can you expect? The common assumption is that you will be hitting a large fade or slice because it is too soft. This is incorrect. You can play a softer shaft and be penalized less than playing a shaft that is too stiff. Although it will take more practice on timing and tempo, a golfer can always go down a flex and not hinder there game as much as going up in flex.
For example: My average swing speed is around 118-120 mph and I normally swing Stiff flex. I have played an entire round of golf with an Regular flex in my driver. Although it felt "whippy" and played soft, I was able to find the fairway all day and still have good distance.
With this said, let's find you the right flex right off the bat! I hope this golf flex chart shown above helps you choose the right golf shaft flex.
