Shaft weighting question

mizunoMX25mizunoMX25 Members Posts: 231 ✭✭

Recently updated my TS3's shaft from a GD AD DJ 6S to AD IZ 6S and am loving the results. Much more stable and allows me to freely swing the club with no guarding against the big left. That being said, I'd like to use the AD DJ as a fairway shaft because I tend to hit the fairway wood really low. However, I have always been more comfortable in the 70-75 gram region with fairway woods. Is there a way to weight the 6S to a 7S spec without affecting shaft profile too much? Or should I just bite the bullet, try to sell the 6S and look for a 7S.


Thanks for your insights!

    I use a Sensiore insert with lead tape wrapped around the straw section.  Remove the grip , shove
    the lead tape wrapped insert into the shaft deep enough to stradle the fulcrum point ,  and it will
    not affect the swingweight . Tipping of shaft per manufacturer is optional. All my fwy and hybrid
    shafts were former driver shafts , that I had outgrown , ( played a little stiff in the driver) and have
    moved to the fwys.........and there is always the just add the tape to the shaft"s exterior.......

    How do I tell where the fulcrum point is? I'm not a clubmaker in the least. Can a local pro shop owner accurately find it or is there somewhere I can find it online?

    The fulcrum point is @ 14" down the shaft below the butt cap end of the shaft .  Using a dowel or old shaft to push the insert down 9" to 10" from the end of the shaft should straddle the fulcrum 
    point ,  and have very little effect on swing weighting.  I use my swingweight scale to be sure...
