I am right on the bubble. I've been fitted multiple places and I am always right on the border between a Stiff and X-Stiff shaft for my driver, 3wood, and hybrid. My driver swing speed ranges from 108-111mph . The "suggested" cut line seems to be 110 mph for most shafts. My carry distance is between typically between 260 - 275. When I got fitted for my 915 D3, they put me in a Aldila Rogue X-Stiff. When I want to hit a draw, I will typically swing a little less, with the speed probably being 105-107, but when I want to hit my preferred shot, the power fade I will swing full, maxing at 113. Most of my regular attempts to put it down the middle fall between the 108-111 that I listed. The biggest complaint I have about my driver is that the ball flight is lower than your typical ball flight.
My questions are:
-Am I losing distance when the X-Stiff because I am a sometimes a few mph below that 110 cut line?
-Is my ball flight lower because the stiffness of the shaft is a bit too much for my swing speed?
-Or am I playing the right shaft and probably getting the right distance, I just happen to be a low ball flighter with the driver?
