Ever since I tore my rotator cuff I’m lucky to be around 103 or so. But I have a short swing and hard transition so I always seem to fit into a stiffer profile than swing speed would suggest.

Hmmm so your fine with 70 gram 6.0 flex?

Yeah works great

Matt..
What was your thinking of not tipping the Driver Shaft?
Reason I ask is the mini head is the same weight as a  3 wood head...??
If your not part of the Solution , then your part of the Problem!!

An un-tipped shaft will play a little softer/be a little bit more active.

Really I thought a Tipped shaft played Stiff due to the fact your altering the kick point, mainly lowering it?..

What I’m try to do is use this Accra TZ5 M4 flex in mini Driver at 44”...

But the Mini Driver Head is around 211g I think..( same head weight as my cobra 3wood)...
My thoughts was the Extra Head weight PLUS shorter over all shaft length makes differences??

I use it off the deck occasionally and didn’t want it to be too stiff. Built it to 43.5” and figured if need be I could tip it 1/2” and still play at 43” but it’s been perfect so far. Just had some range time with it and was killing it.

I’m hoping the Extra Head weight( 210 grams) slightly softens the overall feel
