Tipping Speeder 904HB for 5H?


Recommended Posts

Hello WRXers,

 

I have a new uncut Fujikura Speeder 904HB in regular that I want to install in a Callaway Apex 5H/26* head ('16 version). 

 

My driver swing speed is 100-105, and I tend to be a steeper player (hence the 5H).  Since the shaft is new and uncut, I have some room to customize.  Does anyone have any tipping advice or general advice about 5 hybrid shafts that would be helpful?

 

Thanks and hope everyone is having a good start to 2021

Back when the 904HB came out Fujikura suggested no tip trim. Butt trim to length.   http://golf.ezwebcatalog.com/.sc/ms/dd/ee/308

says 1.0" for 5h

 

I've mainly played 4 iron shafts Thump stiff in my 5 hybrid.

 

You may want to tip it less say 1/2", and leave an extra 1/2" on overall length, so that you could go back and tip it an additional 1/2" to get to 1"

 

FYI: I personally have a 904hb stiff shaft, and I just installed it untipped in a 4h (22*).

 

Haven't hit it yet, but feels pretty stout untipped, but this is a Stiff flex 904hb.

.5 or 1.0 would be your best bets.

 

That is a very stout Hybrid shaft.

My understanding is that tipping a shaft will make it play comparatively stouter all else being equal, is that correct?

 

So, with it being a particularly stiff shaft (I already accounted for this in going with Regular versus my usual stiff), I may want to err on the side of tipping less so that it's not overly stout?

 

It's interesting that the original spec sheet said not to tip, but then again they may have just been referring to the typical 2H/3H/4H installs.  It sounds like tipping .5" might be the best choice here.
