I'll agree with everyone that says get properly fitted. I did this year for the first time and it was a great experience. I ended up buying something totally different that what I would have bought off the rack and the results (+ 20 yards, about 3 more fairways a round and much less punishing mis-hits) speak for themselves. A quote from one of my regular foursome (and he didn't know that I could hear him) - "he's out with the big boys now". Not that it should matter to you but I ended up with the Ping G400 (not the Max although that's what I thought I wanted) with a regular flex Alta CB shaft (thought I wanted the Aldila X-Torsion). The fitting also included Callaway, TaylorMade, Titleist and Cobra.
