  1. The website states the red shaft is high launching with high spin and the black shaft is mid high launch with medium spin. Just wanted to know how much higher the red launched then the black. I was fitted for the red shaft but with windy conditions always present not sure I can knock the ball down enough. Anyone have any thoughts.

    I have the red in graphite. Have always struggled with hitting the high shot. Much better now but still can hit the low punch draw, no problem.

    If you were fitted using both, you should know if the distance is worth getting the red. I struggle with height, so the red was a no-brainer, the flight was ideal for spin and launch angle. I'd otherwise be losing distance on calm days or with a tailwind.

    Did your fitter do the order incorrectly or did you make an error ordering yourself on-line after your fitting? If your fitter made the mistake, it's an easy fix to have him do a return and exchange to correct the error. If it was you, contact customer service and explain and see what they can do.
  6. Looking at getting a set of T 300 clubs. I hit the R300 Red shafts in a 7 iron and was consistently around 178-185 yards. My swing speed was in the low to mid 90's. Should I get the Black S300 shafts as opposed to the Red. Two or three of the guys helping me said they would recommend the Stiffer shaft with my swing speed. Not getting to hit the stiffer shaft, I am unsure of how to proceed. I am 52 years old and know that my swing is slower than it used to be, but don't want to get a stiff shaft and not enjoy it if swing speed continues to slow over the next 5-8 years.

    Each of the red and black shafts have multiple flexes. Moving to a stiffer shaft may not result in moving to the black shaft.
    Any of us can give you our personal observation that will have no bearing on how it will affect you. Flex is most important for dispersion. Too soft will have a wider dispersion. Too stiff will give too much or fade than desired.
    A Titleist fitting location should be able to have you try both shafts and in other flexes as well. To make sure you are getting the best result.
    There are launch and angle of descent that are ideal for your club/ball speed. If your fitting was more than demoing a rack model at a store, I’d trust the fitter.
