I saved the receipt and would think about getting a more flexible shaft but I swing so hard I don't know if it is necessary. I don't understand why shaft length is important because can't I just scoot up or back if I need to? That maybe a really stupid comment but I really know nothing about golf except put the ball in the hole.
Go to golfsmith or PGA superstore or edwin watts, or whatever you have where you live. Have them tell you your swing speed, and ask them if the shaft you have is a good fit. It's not a custom fitting, but it's better than just guessing.

The reason you can't just scoot back, is because in order to hit a good golf shot you've got to approach it from a certain angle.
