Adjustable Drivers - What you should know

March 15, 2011 1 Comment

 

Adjustability isn’t so cut and dry when it comes to drivers.  None of the Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEM) are using adjustability in the same way.  TaylorMade incorporates moveable weights, Callaway’s I-MIX uses a system of interchangeable heads and shafts, and Nike offers up to 32 different options with in their Victory Red STR8-Fit driver.  Now Cobra and Titleist have taken the plunge into adjustable Drivers.

 

Numerous options, but how do you know which position to adjust your driver to.  It isn't as simple as saying you are a slicer of the ball so you need to close the face.  Nor is it as simple as knowing you draw the golf ball and want your face slightly open.  Golfer's swing profiles dictate stiffness of shaft, flex point, weight and several other important fitting factors.  Even with the proper adjustment, launch angle and spin rate should be calculated to optimize Distance and Dispersion.

Custom Fitting is the Answer.  Take advantage of Launch Monitor Technology.  Test the different options to be sure that you are optimizing your Distance and Dispersion.  Once you find the Set up which best suits your swing, Please leave the Head and shaft in that position.  Adjustable Drivers are a great Fitting Tool, but once the proper adjustment is made, the Club should stay at that position.
