Good points, Marc. One question: How to make a "plan" when playing a course for the first time, other than the generic, "Keep ball in play"? I hardly ever play the same course twice (as a golf writer), or if I do, the rounds are separated by months or years. I hear a lot of tips about having a plan and planning one's strategy, but without being familiar with the course, it's awfully hard to do.

Mr. Marc Solomon,
The reason golfers have a different swing for every club is because they are not playing with shafts that have been Neutralized and Flex Matched. Research has proven that the simple orientation of that spine of a golf shaft combined with mix matched flex's of golf shafts have required all golfers for years to adapt a specific swing for each club.

Accumade Neutralized and Flex Matched shafts are the only shafts on the market that actually address and fix that problem. And I would be glad to send you a set to evaluate and prove to yourself and your readers where the problem truely lies, the shaft. We also have a video (not animated) on the front page of the website which will visual show you the spine of a golf shaft and how it always seeks the Neutral Bend point when it is bent in a golf swing.

On Flex Matching for instance; in a standard box of R/S combo flex steel shafts, it could take anywhere from 2800 - 3300 grams to deflect that shaft 4 inches at its neutal bend point. That a 500 gram variance on 3300 grams which is about 14% potential flex difference from one shaft to the next within a box of supposidly matched shafts. Accumade groups those shafts into sets based on +- 5 grams. Likewise, simple misorientation of a shaft to a hosel in a non-Neutral Bend Point locations could vary the stiffnes of the shaft by +150 grams. This concept takes Frequency Matching to a whole new plane of thinking.


Thanks for your time
