Crazy Shaft Fitting Thread

56 posts in this topic

Tario,

I went to Daimaru Tokyo and got fitted with a Crazy 435 11.5 degree and 45inch length CPM 245 D1 with LY01 R2 shaft.

The distance in the computer was astounding but in actual game it is loosing around 20 to 30 yards yards average.

What is it computer over stated the distance or Iam not giving my best shot on the Driver.

Also in the computer there was carry. But in actual it just carry 5 yards the most.

Like to purchase a PRGR Egg SPoon what degree and shaft you recommend?

Also like to have Crazy Fairway wood shaft and Iron shafts. Please recommend.

Want to purchase it at Daimaru but they do not speak English.

So only took the Driver.

hitting it on a LM and on the course are two different animals. i know a bit

of your specs and i highly recommend the 17*egg with m37 stock shaft.

you cannot go wrong with this.

Well the good thing is all crazy shafts spin low, some even under 2000 from optimal impact.

If you go at 46" or longer than you should consider either the LY-01 Hot in 7.4 flex or the Black 46 in 7.2 Flex.

The Hot launches a touch higher and is made for max carry with low spin. Distance is the main focus of the Hot as it is a long drive competition shaft made for normal players like you and I.

It is 7.4 flex because it is suited to go longer and it is lighter weight.

The black 46 is a tad softer but only because it is a tad heavier which evens it out. The 46 is balanced between distance and control so its more of an all around shaft.

Well you definitely need a new shaft based on your speed and distance the DI-5 R1 is WAY too soft!

I would suggest the LY-01 HOT in 7.4 flex. This will still give you the mid to high launch but with low spin and the HOT excels at distance especially if you go 45.5" or more.

The HOT is a what they call Drakon spec, in other words made with the sole focus of distance and max carry. The Nero is more balanced and does both distance and control.

The Quadra will play softer and would launch lower than the HoT.

Damn... that's sounds eerily just like me (are you sure you're not me? :) )...

I'm currently testing out the 10.5 V-Spec demo vs. my AF-151 Quadra FE55 SR.

Th Ryoma will suit you just fine. It's as forgiving as it gets. The shaft will be the key!

I just got it shafted a couple of weeks ago but, I like it so far. Although, it seems to perform better if I time it properly & swing smoother. Best shaft I've tried so far (I haven't had a chance to try a Crazy in a driver yet).

So far, I've been pretty good at resisting the temptation of getting new stuff with my upcoming trip. Although, I did cave & picked up a set of 1050s to try out.

Who knows what will happen when I get back...

Hey T, This is for the incoming Ryoma Vspec 9.5 .5 open. I got the Quadra FE 65SX to use for now but will be saving. Do you think the CB46 will also fit? ( i prefer shaft in the 60s weight class)

What is your handicap:6

What is your estimated swing speed:100-105mph (never got measured)

How far do you hit your driver total distance:260-270y + the odd bombers

How much of that is carry and how much run:240-250y Carry Approx 10-15% run

How far do you hit your 7 iron:160y

Are you a smooth or aggressive swinger:Smooth 3/4 swing big lag and aggressive at the bottom

What is your tempo like, slow, average or fast: average tempo

What is your bad shot ie slice, push, pull, hook:hook/push

How often does your bad shot happen:probably 2 drives/ rnd approx

Any other info about your swing ie too much spin, steep downblow, flat plane etc: I hit slightly on the up so spin no issue.Flattish plane. Current drivers mid-high launch & decent roll but no idea of spin rates. No Balooning

What club are you currently using: a)Adams Speedline Classic 9.5 1*open b) 9.5* 9064LS

What shaft and flex are you currently using:a) Oban Devotion 7 05flex untipped 266cpm b) Quadra Fe 65SX

Please describe your current trajectory with this combo:a) mid to high a bit anti left, b) mid to high occasional big blocks

What do you like or dislike about this combo:

A)gamer for over 12months nice anti left combo & fairway finder but due to chroninc left wrist injury need to go lighter. Also weight & flex may get a little tough late in the round & head not forgiving on bad swing days

B) Forgiving head and on average longer. I'm also experiencing the huge blocks that others are experiencing with the Standard Quadra when I decide to give it extra.

Where do you see your game going? Keep improving <5hcp

What is your budget? lets get it right first time :)

Me -> 5'4 stocky build just turned 42. Flattish swing in to out with a slight draw as normal shot. What do i want to achieve? both distance and accuracy of course.

I´m a slow hitter (swepper) with Driver ss = 90 mph.

With my Kamui 456 Silver / Crazy LY-01 R2 flex, headweight 212gr., swingweight D5, 45 inch a clubfitter measured only 217 cpm (lady flex).

On the same machine he measured 247 cpm on my 3 wood (43 inch), D4.

How much would the cpm increase changing the shaft flex from 5.9 (R2) to 6.4 or 6.9?

What would be the correct flex (for Longest Yard 01) for my swingspeed? 6.X?

The DI-5 Regular might be a bit on the soft side for you which is why you are having dispersion problems. At 230m you would be best with the Crazy Black 46 in 6.7 flex. It will be much tighter than the DI, have low spin, a nice kick and very good distance and control as its a great all around shaft.

3 models that i interested is tj 46 noir, LY 02 Noir, and LY 01 nero

Ive been thinkng about a lighter shaft as a new project, and have been looking at the LY-01 HOT Black. I have a pretty short, compact swing with quite a lot of lag and have a swing speed right around 114mph. I hit it quite hig, which i dont mind in itself, but would like to pair the LY-01 Hot with a lower lofted head to get some roll. Will the HOT "hold" up well with a laggy shorter swing? If so, what flex? Been thinking I might need something like the 8.2 flex. Will keep the club at a length of 45 or 45.5.

How far do you hit your 7 iron: 165-170

Are you a smooth or aggressive swinger: pretty aggressive, but working on toning down my driver swing a bit

What is your tempo like, slow, average or fast: from meduim to very fast when Im off

What is your bad shot ie slice, push, pull, hook: Hook, sometimes block out right. At times I slice, so a bit of everything...?

How often does your bad shot happen: 3-4 times per round

Any other info about your swing ie too much spin, steep downblow, flat plane etc: Shortish, compact swing with quite a lot of lag.

What club are you currently using: VEGA or Tourstage 703. Also have a R510TP as a back up

What shaft and flex are you currently using: Roddio W7WA X, Miyazaki black 72X

Please describe your current trajectory with this combo: High, the Vega a bit lower
