    Same issue here. All came 1/4 inch short of what I wanted. Oh well. Reshafting anyway.

    Is this still an issue?

    I just got some King OS hybrids. The 4/5h is listed at 39.75”. With the stock grip it measured 39 5/8”.

    If I remove the grip and measure to the end of the shaft like most oems to it’s 39.5” so .25” short of spec.

    With a GP Align grip it’s 39.75”.

    Actually, they got a new formula fromBryson. It involves multivariate equations, advanced trigonometry, calculus and it takes an hour to measure each set.

    I think you nailed it, it's the grips. The Cobra Connect grips have shorter butt caps comparatively to other OEMs. However, every OEM measures length differently. Some account for grip cap, some don't. Some measure with the top arrow, some don't. Some cut then bend, others bend then cut. All of this can influence the length of the finished product around 0.25" of an inch.
