The other day during an ad-hoc driver fit, which I'll save for another story as I came away with a JPX 825 9 degree in Fujikura Blue Eye stiff, I put up my 650 against an 825 (stock stiff Blue Eye) on the flightscope monitor. The 825 was obviously way more forgiving and dispersion was way tighter than the 650 but on average it was 20 yards shorter due to higher flight and backspin. I should point out that the 650 always gives me excellent spin and launch angles when struck correctly!
The question is, if I fit the Red Eye shaft or even the PX 6.0 shaft (which I've previously been fit for in another brands woods) into the 825, can I reclaim some of this distance and keep the tight dispersion? I know the Red Eye is a good fit as it performs very well in my 650 (both fairway and hybrid).
I know a few of you will say find a proper fitting centre with an adequate fitting cart but to be honest the closest one is along way away and at present I just don't have the time available to commit to such an endeavor!
Comments, advice and experiences very welcome :)
