Haha yeah Iíve changed my swing too, made a wholesale change over the course of time to get rid of my flip. I hit a lot of high spinny balls on misses when I started golfing. Eventually started hitting good solid shots and playing pretty decent golf. Got to a point I felt like I had the potential to break 80 about anywhere I played.

Instead of staying in this happy area I got too flat/inside-out and wasnít able to launch the ball or put any spin on it and really struggled. Hitting low hooks and high blocks out of bounds are perhaps second fastest way to demoralize a golfer right behind shanks and slices.

Last summer I had a 9 hole league round where I lost seven balls off the tee and shot a 53. Maybe it was 55. Thatís the worst I could ever remember shooting for nine. I had to quit the game for a month just to mentally reboot. Didnít swing a club for a month and came back and quit thinking (other than ďjust hit the damn ballĒ) and managed to finish the season fairly strong.

 I wonder what my 7D shaft profiles would have looked like in 2010, 2015, and 2020. Or hell just the first half of 2020 and second half of 2020. 😂 Or perhaps a 7 Dreamers shaft made in 2020 would be more like 7 Nightmares 🤷🏻‍♂️

Youíre full of ideas, Matt!

The shafts intrigued me, for sure, but Iím afraid my persistent swing tinkering would yield it useless quicker than Matt could sell his. Probably not, but thatís what I tell myself halt any serious consideration.

I always thought it would have been a lot of fun to have gone to Tokyo and had the fitting and gotten a shaft made just for me. But if we are being honest I probably would have sold it within 6 months anyways out of boredom. 😂

Maybe there could be a 7D reboot that combines custom shaft building with the old lady from Loop making them by hand then having the guys from TRPX or Crazy doing the naming and graphics. 🔥🔥🔥

With all the focus on lower spin and higher ball speeds of new FWs it only makes sense even pros are going to 5, 7, even 9 woods because they donít need to hit a frozen rope 270-290y off the deck. And for amateurs those low spin FWs  become quite hard to launch/stop in traditional lofts so we drop down to hybrids or higher lofted fairways that with the hotter face they go about as far as the old 3/5 woods did but with high launch and more forgiveness. Win-win. Hope it sticks around for you. Definitely a nice looking unit.

Higher lofted fairways are still seen as an old man's or ladies club. Seriously, they are awesome. So forgiving and sooooooo easy to hit. Can't go wrong. Look at the best players in the world, some of them are now playing 7woods.

Ok, thank you for your quick reply.

I have just a doubt about the 63, maybe light but let see.

Not easy to find shaft only (at least I donít know anything about shaft except what I am reading here).

One of my last purchase was a Grindworks VariantOne 24į with a OTi95S, brand new for close to nothing (94$us).

SO I shafted the old man 9W with a Basileus Alpha FW75.  Turns out I thought this was 26* but its 24.5*.

Tried it at the range and its surprisingly easy to launch.. 24.5% I suppose.  Ball flight is high though, higher than my Ito 23 hybrid and just as long.. a happy problem.

I think there is more distance from this as I still wasn;t hitting it pure.  Always felt like I was hitting just a tad behind.  Will nee another range session to dial in ball position.

9W... sigh... sign of the times for me...
