I recently bought a couple TS 7 Red shafts. One is uncut the other is from a Titliest fairway wood.

Can someone tell me how much was tipped with the adapter still on it?

    It was tipped about an inch.
    Those SureFit adapters are quite deep, if you notice where the serial number ends on the outside of the adapter that's about where the end of the shaft seats. Just above the thin circlip on the outside of the adapter.

    Thank you for the reply. Looks like it's tipped about 3/4" then. That won't change the stiffness by anything noticeable.

    Since that's a fairway shaft the tipping is probably standard and you are correct it shouldn't play any stiffer. If it was a driver shaft it may play a little stiffer.

    Very well could be 3/4's if it came from a fairway wood that could likely be the case. I didn't clean out the adapter I checked and throw a depth gauge in it but I can if you really want to know exactly.... within a 1/4 of an inch is probably sufficient?

    I was down to the shop on a different errand and checked, it's nearly an inch and a half from the top of the adapter to where the shaft seats. So, if you don't count the small plastic ferrule, but rather measure from the top of the aluminum cuff of the adapter, perhaps an inch and 7/16's?

    It's going into a M6 5 wood once I get the adapter off. So you guys have answered what I was wondering. Fujikura says to tip 1/2" for a 5 wood from the start.

    Seems right. Might want to start straight in and leave it a bit long in the butt to check the ball flight.
