  1. I am building 2019 Callaway Apex Pro Smoke with a graphite shaft that Callaway doesn’t offer. What kind of pure length of the shaft should I get when I cut the new shaft from the company to have the standard playing length? ( 6 iron: 37.5”) I will have 2 degree upright lie angle and Golf pride Tour velvet 360 grips which gives about additional 1/16 inch as far as I know. It seems shaft manufacturer sells the irons shafts with progression of length. Can I just install the original shafts without cutting? or what would be proper length for these heads? Thank you in advance
  2. Two years later, now I am using project x 54g x-stiff shaft. I hit 300 yrds that was my initial goal. Thanks to Stuart, it was worth to try. I am also glad to see many of manufacturers are trying to put lighter shafts on their stock lineups.
  3. All clubs are factory ordered and still in mint condition. All grips are standard size. Note that JDM Rogue star driver and wood are originally shaft installed w/o adapter. No split shafts and No trades. All prices are shipped OBO but no low ballers please. 1. JDM Callaway Rogue Star Driver 9.5* w/ Graphite Design Tour AD VR 5X (D3, Standard L/L/L) - $330 2.

  5. It was a pulled one. I think the prepping was not good enough as Mizguy mentioned.
  6. Here are the specs from Callaway website with the head weight I measured today. Keep in mind that Epic Star doesn't have adjustable adapter. I measured US Epic and XR16 at the shop, so there is some tapes on the head. Consider the impact tape as 1~2 grams. I couldn't have a chance to measure the slider weight of US Epic. Enjoy!
  7. If True Temper makes 6.5 flex shaft for SS >100 mph and it is broken at that speed, who should use the shaft?
  8. Without spay I can sell where I hit right away since the dirty range ball remains the stain on the face in every shot. Also, I can tell by ball flight. If slightly off-centered hit matters, then it also doesn't make sense. I don't think even Tour players can't hit the sweet spot every time. I bring my bag by car and sometimes I store the bag for a while. But I have never broken >60g shafts.
  9. I broke a shaft, Project X pxv 39 6.5 flex (39g) w/ Callaway XR16, around the tip. My SS is around 100 mph and I hit 5 shots after reshafting without any abuse and every shot was made around the sweet spot of the face. I looked at the inside of the hosel and I could see the level of epoxy was about 1.5" (filled up to the middle of ferrule) I wonder whether this amount of the epoxy is used for the normal installation of the adapter. If the excessive amount of epoxy can affect the swing weight or bending force to the shaft? How much epoxy amount do you use when you install a shaft? I have check Youtube, but some guys suggest to fill the epoxy enough and the others use only minimum amount of epoxy to cover the surface of the shaft tip. This is second time to break lightweight x-stiff shaft. The first one was Aldila NV44 Magnum TX (48g) on Titleist 917 D3. Is it possible to break those x-stiff shafts with my SS? (I don't think so...) Last time when I had the same issue with Magnum, some ppl said it can be happened with several heel shots, but I never hit that spot with both shafts.
