Autoflex Shaft

This makes sense, there is far more to be gained for someone who doesn't already hit it that far. 

I'd like to hit this thing just to see how it would compare to my gamer, but I can't imagine that I'd ever spend this much money on a golf shaft considering where the rest of my game is. I'd be way better off spending that money on fixing my swing compared to investing in a single shaft for one club.

I totally agree with you.   With that said I so want to try it....lol.  Must not buy.  Or if someone reading this has one to sell dm me. I am weak right now.

Watched a couple of videos on TXG about this shaft.   Who on here is going to be the first to give it a go?   Only $750!    

Here is my Autoflex review.    Shout out to @Manimal26as I purchased the shaft from him. Great guy to deal with.... I have had this for close to a week now.  It is a very well made shaft.

Ok. I couldn’t stand it after reading about this shaft all over the internet. People either get massive gains with it or they don’t. Probably having a correct combination of shaft and head for your ow

I'd definitely love to try it out. I just want to see for myself if those kind of gains are really possible.

Matt said, while he does hit autoflex longer and his ss is up,  he does not hit it as consistent as Ventus black.   He said he does not need the extra 15 yards 

Hey @Hotdocta don’t you own an auto flex?

Ok. I couldn’t stand it after reading about this shaft all over the internet. People either get massive gains with it or they don’t. Probably having a correct combination of shaft and head for your own individual swing. 
Anyways, I decided to give it a go. Ordered a shaft from @Manimal26 here on my golf spy. Process went very smoothly. I am going to pair this with my Ping G400 head. Every one says this head is too heavy, but I will counterweight it if necessary to bring swingweight down. 
I will update all with my progress. Worst case scenario....I sell the shaft and recoup some of the money spent on this distance experiment.

Driver swing speed is 93-94 mph. I got the 405. Very pumped to see what this will do for my swing speed. I hit 73% of fairways last season.  If I can get 15-20 more yards (1-2 less clubs into the green as a result) and maintain accuracy then I will be very pleased. Distance is king. I did an experiment on an empty course this year. I played two balls. One from my regular tees of 6500 yards....and one from the senior tees. I shot a 78 from the regular tees and a 68 from the senior tees. I was on every par five except one in 2 shots from the senior tees, and it became very clear how much easier this game is the further you hit it!

I look forward to sharing my progress!

Both scores are very respectable in their own rights, but if you want to score low proximity to the hole is key.

I am glad you are looking forward to it. In the ping head people may mistake your diver for Bubba’s 🤪

You are absolutely correct!  Proximity to the hole is a direct correlation to better scores.  And I figure the closer I am to the hole after the tee ball....the better my proximity will be.
 

Love it!  I will be the right handed Bubba!

100% agree except for the rare course where a longer tee shot can hinder you. Not many of those though. Of course you do get the rare course that is both long and punishing like the blessing in Arkansas... but that is where better ball strikers who lack distance can prevail... 

If you start crushing it past me can we spray paint the club head to match bubbas?

Here is my Autoflex review. 
 

Shout out to @Manimal26as I purchased the shaft from him. Great guy to deal with....

I have had this for close to a week now.  It is a very well made shaft.  It feels whippy. This is unlike anything you have ever swung.  I can guarantee that.

I paired the Autoflex 405 shaft with my Ping G400 driver head.   Driver SS 93-94 mph. 
 

I have gained 4-5 mph swinging at my “normal” speed. That translates roughly to ten yards that I was seeing. Dispersion was down a little.  I am used to my driver being a fairway finder  over 70% of the time.  So that was a little depressing. Smash factor didn’t seem to change from my current shaft to the Autoflex. 
 

Now. Here is where it gets really interesting. If I slowed my driver swing with the Autoflex just a little from my “normal”.....the swing speed didn’t change from my gamer shaft at normal speed. My smash factor went up slightly and my dispersion was actually improved from my gamer shaft.  My big miss also disappeared using this intent. 
 

So my intent was to get something to let me hit the ball further, but if I slow it down....my accuracy improves without distance loss.  Go figure!

Hey guys,

 

I finally broke down and purchased a 505 for my SZ Xtreme.  I'm in the low 90's for swing speed but just started SuperSpeed training so I wanted some room to grow with the shaft.

 

A couple questions for the group:

1) was going with the 505 a smart move?  Has anyone in my swing speed range swung both?

 

2) any suggestion on optimum head weight for this driver paired with the 505

 

By the way, I got the rainbow version and my Xtreme is the Pars and Stripes edition.  The combo looks sick!
