 ==== ====I was almost at screaming point with my Trying to figure it out back in 1998 I had problems withlack of resources before i got internet I tried learning it myself via video, it didn't work. To help youout or aynone needing to fix or improve your golf game so they stop removing you from thecourse. So I researched for many hours a day for years about repair or improve your golf game Ifound this was the best. Find out the secret to EASILY improve your drive check outhttp://www.the-doctors.info/golf/golf-videos/ or get one of the tools we recommend at http://off-to.net/GolfGuide orhttp://off-to.net/GolfSwingGuru ==== ====If you're an avid golfer, you may have that persistent desire to upgrade your golf clubs frequently,if not every year. You may even begin to believe it's your God-given right to experience the latestin technology that will allow you to take your game to the next level and seek the holy grail of golf.That long drive with a slight draw... or maybe that crisp iron shot that lands softly on the green toset you up for a birdie try. You know the feeling. Let me see if I can set the stage. It's early Spring and still too cold to play golf but you are beginning to get the itch back. You pickup the spring edition of the Golf Equipment Buyer's Guide to peruse the latest equipment. Yousoon find yourself day dreaming about how the latest Game Improvement irons will allow you todrop a club and hit 150 yards with an "easy" 7 iron. Or, how about that new driver that will addyardage by eliminating that annoying fade, making you the envy of your foursome? Then the real danger sets in. You attend one of those dreaded "golf demo days" where youscrutinize every new club salivating at the grand new technology. Finally you do something youknow you will regret but do it anyway. You head out to the heated range with a bucket of balls inone hand and that new driver in the other, the one with a $450 price tag and five star rating fromGolf magazine, with the intent of validating its touted acclaim. The final verdict is in. Two thumbsway up. You may even wonder how you got through a round of golf last year without this club. Sound hauntingly familiar? Well, you're not alone. Technology is an amazing game equalizer thataffect some sports more than others - golf is at or near the top of that list. One can even makethe argument that golf technology has gone too far, providing unfair advantages over the golferthat maybe cannot afford the luxury of upgrading equipment regularly. I personally fall into thecamp that technology is a great thing for the game of golf and the average player. It allows golferswith mediocre abilities to experience the thrill that comes from hitting that 250 yard drive rightdown the center of the fairway, that they know would not be a possible with outdated equipment.Anyone serious about the game understands and maybe even welcomes technology as part ofthis game. There are other ways however, you can experience new technology, improve your game, and do itin fashion that will allow you to pay next months light bill. It's called a golf re-shaft or golf shaft
 
replacement. By upgrading what many call the "engine" of the golf club, one can experienceamazing results. Today's golf shafts are so technically advanced, you can easily take that driveryou have been using the last couple years and add 10, 15, or even 20 yards with a correctly fittedshaft! Shaft characteristics and measuring characteristics to each swing are integral to a proper golffitting - they all play key roles in determining the correct shaft for each golfer. A high leveldescription for some of these characteristics are described below: Flex A very general guideline for shaft flex is 70 to 90 mph head speed = Regular, 90 to 100 mph headspeed = Stiff, and excess of 100 mph = Extra Stiff. Torque Defined as how much the shaft twists given a certain amount of force. In general, the lower thetorque, the harder the feel and less twisting occurs (club head turning around the shaft). Steelshafts are fairly constant and do not twist much. Graphite shafts given their properties, varyconsiderably more. Lower torque with stiffer shafts are more difficult to hit without adequate clubhead speed. In general, slower swing speeds typically need a higher torque to help square theclub face, while faster swingers need lower torque. Kick Point Defined as the maximum bending of the shaft (also called flex or bend point). This characteristicaffects the trajectory of the shot. If someone hits the ball too low of a trajectory, a lower kick pointwill get the ball airborne, and vice-versa. The lower the kick point, the more the club head will feellike it is moving through impact. In contrast, a higher kick point will make the shaft have a "one-piece" feel. In general, a higher kick point is easier to control. Length In general, there are standards in place for most clubs, especially irons. For example, most 7 ironshafts are 34.5" in length. The standard driver length is 43". Recent advancements in drivertechnology has allowed for an increase in driver shaft lengths. Many drivers now come standardwith 45" shafts, some even longer. The maximum legal length for drivers is 48". Weight Most steel driver shafts weigh between 90 and 120 grams while their graphite counterparts comein between 65 and 90 grams. Many driver shafts are going to lighter weights to increase clubhead speed and distance. The weight of irons vary in accordance with the length of the shaft,incrementing 2 grams per club ranging from 120 grams for the longer irons to 110 grams for theshorter irons. As you can see from the above descriptions, selecting the right shaft can be an involved process,one that should not be taken lightly if game improvement is your objective. That brings me to the
 
point I would like to stress most about shaft selection. In my opinion, getting custom fitted by atrained professional is one of the best decisions you can do for your game. Analyzing your swingdynamics using computer generated results significantly reduces or eliminates the guess work outof the shaft fitting equation. This personally happened to me last year. I was using a USTProforce V2, a great shaft by all measures. However, I was custom fitted and found that theFujikura ZCom Six, was a better shaft for my swing. It allowed me to increase my club headspeed while maintaining or even improving control. I increased my drive by at least 15 yards.This was all done on a 5+ year old Taylor Made R5 club head. One caveat to this thesis is that extremes should be avoided. In other words, do not expectdrastic positive results by putting a $300 shaft on a 20 year old antiquated club head. Althoughyou may see improvement, you may be better served with a brand new club. There are plenty of great golf shaft manufacturers to choose from including Accuflex, Aldila,Fujikura, Grafalloy, Graphite Design, Harrison, Mitsubishi, Penley, Rifle, Royal Precision, TrueTemper, and UST. All of these companies in my opinion, produce great shafts and offer a widevariety of choices. In general, shaft prices range from $50 upward to and over $200 however,expect to find a very good shaft to fit your game somewhere in between. Try out the more popularauction methods to get even better prices. Hopefully you can now see how re-shafting your golf clubs can be a very cost-effective andgratifying alternative to a total replacement of your golf clubs. I urge all golfers to take a seriouslook at this option in order to get a taste of the latest in golf technology while improving your gameand saving some money. For more information or to order golf shafts visit our website at http://www.GolfShaftAuctions.com/   Article Source:http://EzineArticles.com/?expert=Dan_DeRoeck  ==== ====I was almost at screaming point with my Trying to figure it out back in 1998 I had problems withlack of resources before i got internet I tried learning it myself via video, it didn't work.
