I'm curious about how shaft length is measured.  Specifically, at the grip end.  On most grips there is a double line about 1/8" or 1/4" from the very end.  From what I've seen, most measurements are to that point, rather than the very end of the grip.  Meaning, if a driver has a stated length of 45.5" should that be to the double line, or to the very end of the grip?

 

I'm getting ready to pull the trigger on a G425 but will end up ordering it without the Arcos stuff, and want to make sure I get the right length ordered.

 

Thanks,  Rod

There is no one single standard for that.  Different OEM's have different practices.   Some even measure it to the end of the shaft butt before the grip is even put on.  Some others use a fixed length

end of grip.  order it at stock length 45.75" for the Alta shaft and 45.25" for any other shaft.  these lengths are to the eog.  The problem with Arrcos is the grip adds an extra 1/4" onto the length.  So when you change from the Arrcos grip to a non arrcos you will loose that 1/4"

There is no one single standard for that.  Different OEM's have different practices.   Some even measure it to the end of the shaft butt before the grip is even put on.  Some others use a fixed length past the butt end of the shaft (e.g. 1/8" or 1/4").  

 

If memory serves - Ping is one of those that typically measure w/o a grip but adds on a fixed amount to account for the grip.  So where it ends up on the grip depends on which grip you choose.

 

Here is a thread that discusses it in more detail - and even a good picture of the different grip treatments 2/3'rds of the way down the first page.  But the short answer is that most that measure with the grip will measure to the top edge of the grip, not the top of the dome.

      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.
