Crazy fw 80

Recommended Posts

So I picked up a crazy fw80 6.4 for a maruman shuttle 3w

swing speed 98avg on driver 

launch is so high and distance is horrendous. 

Bad experiment or can it be saved?

Help and Thanks

Maruman Shuttle heads are high launch to start with. 
Perhaps 6.4 is too flexy for you?  Hard to say without knowing your swing style. 

FW80 is a very good FW shaft.   With the right specs,  I have had very good experience with it.  

I have used FW80s with 7.4 to 8.2 flex and all worked pretty well.    ( 8.2 was probably a bit much shaft for me. ) 

Only issue for me is that it is a bit on the light side for an FW shaft.    

I have a moderate tempo with smooth transition.   Driver SS is probably right around 100 mph these days.

Your swing speed is similar to me and tempo is the same. Also I’m not a high launch player. More mid launch on all clubs  I had Mitsubishi gg shaft in it before but the flex was too soft and shaft was too light. I play a crazy 6.7 in ryoma driver and thought the fw6.4 would work. But maybe I need 6.7 or 6.9  or another stiff fw shaft

Thanks for the reply

I don’t know... all the Crazy driver shafts that I’ve tried to like in the past didn’t like me back ...

if you want a more controlled lower launch with your FW ,  Fire Express BX70 plays really nicely in an FW.    I have an F3 flex in my Modart 3wood and an F2 flex in my 5 wood.    Debating now if I should get another one for my driver...

If you are talking about the Red Gold colored FEX 65 ,  aren’t they high launch?   bx70 is low launch.
