Bought some new iron shafts for my life but can’t find tipping instructions. They’re “new” Project X (3-PW) 4.5 flex graphite iron shafts , circa 2014. Just wondering if I should start with 0.5” on the 4i shaft and work my way down 1/2” at a time?

    My rusty memory say they are TAPER tips, and if Parallels, Discrete lengths and butt cut only, so tell me, are they all 41.00" like a normal parallel tip shaft?

    That’s what has me stumped too! The 3i shaft is 41” but they descend down incrementally all the way to about 37 1/2” on the wedge shaft ....

    Then its butt cut only, thats how PX shafts is delivered, but if you have a caliper, try to measure how long the TIP section is, thats where the difference is (0.5" between shafts) just to make sure, but this sounds right, but that 41 is a #1 iron shaft, not a #3 iron shaft, so its sound slike #1-#8, not 3-PW, so if you install them as 3PW they will be soft stepped 2x....if thats ok, move on, or simply tip them more if you feel like.

    PS there should be some labels on the butt telling what # that shaft belongs to

    Yep - the labels all list 3 thru PW
    Why would they be an inch off? Should I just tip them all 1” to make up for the SS 2x and call it good?

    Just found my PFC lists for 2014....say .355 Tapers
    What hosel specs? .355 or .370 or combo?
    Be aware of that PX IRONS in graphite has the same flex as STEEL, so they are not softer because they are graphite, so you are the closest to judge the need for flex.

    you can build 1 club (no tip trim), and simply cut off the grip cap so you can push the grip all the way down to play lenght, and leave about 1 inch outside and over the grip. Then let her try that club and judge feel of flex so you dont mess it up by going to strong.

    They are all .370 (.367) and appear to all be parallels

    Thanks for all your help / advice! I hate to screw these up, considering she’s trying to get out of the steel shafts
