The driver is one of the most important clubs in your bag, but there’s routinely too much emphasis placed on the driver brand and head. Today, SwingU instructor Ryan Rustand explains two key components you should be aware of when buying your next shaft: the kick point and the flex.

The kick point is the bend point in the shaft and it dictates the kind of ball flight your driver will produce. The flex of your shaft is typically tied to your swing speed with the various ranges dictating the flex of shaft you will need in your clubs.
