Ventus fairway tipping


Recommended Posts

This has been discussed before. It seems that the ventus shouldn’t be tipped no matter the club. Rules schmuells. I’m moving from a 44” ventus blue 7S driver to a 45” ventus 6X in search of more distance. Preliminary results are exciting. The bonus is now I have a sweet fairway shaft available for my 3 wood. Kinda in that tweener zone for flex at 107-110 driver but that’s all out. Hopefully they’ll be more through training but that’s a different topic. With 3w I’ll be swinging much smoother and I usually play them a little shorter (42 1/2”). 
Should I tip the 3w?

thx

go 1” on a 7s   i went 1” on a 7x black and here’s my numbers from my first test on Sunday. no issues with 3 wood.  

I would tip it a little bit. I played all of mine tipped and they’re just fine. Start with half an inch, and just leave it a little over length and choke down to your normal length. You can always cut

I would recommend tipping your 3 metal 1 to 1.5 inches.  Really depends on how stiff you want the tip and how much spin you want to knock off.

Start with half an inch, and just leave it a little over length and choke down to your normal length. You can always cut from the butt end or tip it more if need be this way. Once you cut from the tip there’s no going back, unless you don’t mind a little extension.

I play 6X in driver tipped 1/2" and 7S tipped 1 1/2" in 3wood. If I was to do it again I would go 1" in 3 wood...

      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.
