Does anyone know if the new shafts, heads, gloves and balls affect gameplay at all? I tried the super-stiff shafts and it seemed it was harder to hit the ball straight, but I don't know if I just had a case of the shanks or if the new shafts make the swing less forgivable. Do the newer balls travel farther. It's really hard to tell since if you are swinging well, you can hit the ball using default equipment pretty far. Thanks in advance for any input.
