Buying a new driver for my son, assuming same shaft make, flex etc in for example Ping stock option Alta CB which is better:

1) Driver shaft reduced to 43 inch or

2) 3 Wood shaft that is 43 inch??

I assume 3W shaft will be slightly heavier and potentially slightly stiffer, is there any reason to favour cutting over interchanging. Would be handy even interchanging a hybrid with 3W for length in same G410 same Alta shaft combo

For woods the shafts are interchangeable until it is tip trimmed for less than driver.

 

The difference being that the 3w shaft would play stiffer.

PXG  9* 0811 X  Hazardous Smoke Yellow 60g Stiff

Wishon 929HS 3w  Wishon Black 65g Stiff

Wishon 775HS  3 hybrid  Wishon Black Hybrid Stiff

4-G  PXG 0211  DG 105 Regular

Ping Glide 3.0  54*  Z-115 Wedge shaft

PXG 0311  60*  TT Elevate 95 Stiff

PING Anser 3 Goose Neck Putter

If driver shaft 45 1/4 it would be harder for him to find the middle with lie being so upright surely. Although some drivers have lie adjustability I think. Will have to do more research as new drivers aren't cheap. Found a Ping thrive set last night online which has 43 inch driver but seems to be sold out everywhere. Not easy this junior equipment minefield...

Hence the need to choke up a bit. For reference, my son is 5'0" and swings 44". Lie is less of an issue for drivers since you're not hitting off the deck. If it's little flat, he'll hit a slight draw, which isn't necessarily a bad thing.

I know what you mean, thinking of going with the Ping ProdiG in the +3 inch over standard shaft. It seems weight aswell as length a major factor to consider to avoid ‘ugly duckling’ phase. Extra weight brings false speed and u can’t keep going heavier so the fitter today recommended ProdiG even tho will only get a season or so out of them. Adults lengths and weights when he grows out of these better for swing long term. It’s a strange one because he can pipe my stiff shaft 44 inch driver ?

      This week, the PGA Tour is at TPC San Antonio on the Oaks Course for the Valero Texas Open. GolfWRX was on-site Tuesday to catch a glimpse into the bags of some of the world’s top golfers.
       
      The field of 144 is getting ready to battle starting Thursday for the $7.7 million purse, with $1.386 million going to the winner. The tournament is also the last event where players can qualify for The Masters, just like Canadian Corey Conners did last year.
