1000 thank yous to **benno_r** for compiling this list over the years!!!

 

Feel free to add or make corrections. Thought we needed a database for all shafts and if they've been tipped. Thanks.

 

Aldila

NV 75 Stiff. 26" to lower left corner of first "A" Aldila

NVS 75 Stiff. 26" to lower left corner of first "A" Aldila

Aldila RIP Alpha Red Eyes 70g Reg. 26 7/8" from tip to bottom of word Aldila.

Rogue Silver & Black. 31.5" from tip point of the "A" in the atom.

 

Fujikura

Fuel (non TS). 20.5" from tip to "x" in Flex

Speeder 6.1 Stiff. 17.5" from tip to "a" in Fujikura (reported same for all VC speeder shafts - not confirmed)

Speeder 661. 16" from tip to "a" in Fujikura

 

Grafalloy

BiMatrix Prototype. 8" Steel section.

 

Graphite Design

Tour AD-BB 6S. 24.75" Tip to first green ring.

Tour AD-DI 6S / 7S. 24.75" Tip to first green ring.

Tour AD-DI 7S "Black". 25.75" Tip to first green ring.

Tour AD-DI 6X. 23.75" Tip to first green ring.

Tour AD-DI 7X. 24.75" Tip to first green ring.

Tour AD-DJ 6S. 24.75" Tip to first green ring.

Tour AD-GT 7S. 24.75" Tip to first green ring.

Tour AD-MJ 6S. 24.75" Tip to first ring.

Tour AD-MT 7S. 24.75" Tip to first ring.

24.75"seems to be the go Graphite Design ADs in stiff

AD DI 7S - 24.75" to first green ring

AD BB 6S - 24.75" to first blue ring

I am guessing via comparison that X Flex are an inch shorter to the first ring.

AD DI 6s 24.75" first green ring

AD DI 6s 27.75" first green ring

Also checked an AD GT 7S, an ADDJ 6S, an ADDI 7S, and 7X, and all conform to the 24.75" to first green ring measurement principle.

Graphite Design - Black AD DI is 25.75" to first ring.

Graphite Design - AD DI 7S - 24.75" to first green ring

Graphite Design - AD BB 6S - 24.75" to first blue ring

GD AD MJ 6s 24.75 to first yellow ring.

DI 7s is 24.75" to band

An AD DI 6X is an inch shorter to the first green ring than a 6S, so a 6S tipped an inch (to give X flex equivalent) will have rings aligning to 6X out of the factory. The shaft in question was tipped half an inch, which is 3 wood tipping spec.

 

Matrix

Altus Hybrid Stiff. 15.5" tip to "S" in Altus

Radix HD7 stiff (blue shaft). 20.5" tip to "7"

I found it... jmcdonald has it right. The measurement for the other Tour AD Wood models of DJ, BB, GT, MT, MJ, M9003 and GP are also 24 5/8" from the tip to the first ring in the graphics closest to the tip on a brand new shaft. For the Tour DI Hybrids, it is 21 5/16", for the Tour HY hybrids it is 20 7/8". The Tour AD 9003's are 25 3/4".https://forums.golfwrx.com/discussion/comment/13241268/#Comment_13241268

Diamana TB 30.25” tip to top of Circle D logo

 

So, in this photo I have both Diamana BF and DF shafts.

The BF looks to be at 17-3/16"to the l in Chemical, so that's tipped 1 inch.

 

The DF is at 18-1/8" to the l in Chemical is untipped in my mind.

 

That is if the DF and BF and, maybe by extension, RF and ZF all have the same tip to graphic dimension.

1/8 or 3/16 - either way is fine. Its just error of the person who measured (I just copied those from other threads). 3/16 is like a hair over 1/8.

 

The point is that is your shaft is tipped .5" or 1" or 1.5" you would be able to tell even if we said it was just 18" from tip to graphic since those are much larger numbers.

Bumping this useful thread for the following:

 

Anyone have the tip to graphic for the Fujikura Atmos Tour Spec Hybrid.

 

For the Blue 8S I have (unknown tipping, but unlikely untipped, likely 1/2") the tip to graphic is 14.25" from the tip (tip trimmed some amount) to the "a" in Fujikura

 

Edit to Add:  Response from Fujikura CS, thanks Chad!

 

15-1/8" to the "a" in Fujikura

 

Edited by geochitown
added tip to graphic dimension received from Fujikura CS
