    Dean

    here is one article worth a read :

    http://findarticles.com/p/articles/m.../ai_n14700263/
    EG A shaft with a high kick point can generate a low ball flight because the clubhead tends to maintain its loft at impact.

    Basically its opposites - A low kickpoint gives a high flight so you need a shaft with a mid to high kick point

    If you have such a good club - spend some extra on getting it custom fitted.
    Have you changed the position of the shaft to knock one degree off the face ?

    can anyone tell me whats the best shaft for a lower ball flight
    I have a " UST Mamiya PROFORCE AXIVcore Tour Green driver Shaft " 85g, X stiff flex with a tour velvet grip that has an R9 sleeve which fits an R11 driver.

    This shaft will reduce the flight height of your ball dramatically.

    70 including postage if you want it.

    X flex is going to need a pretty fast swing on it, or every thing will go low, but right.
