Driver, Fairway wood, Hybrid Shaft Weight


Recommended Posts

Hey guys! I am about to purchase a "custom" hybrid and wanted to make sure I select the appropriate weight.

 

This is my current setup:

 

Driver: Originally 58g with 46" length. I cut it down to 45". So total weight, would be 56.2g 

 

3 wood: Originally 67g with 44" length. I cut it down to 42" length. So total weight would be 64g

 

Is my calculation above correct?

 

If I want a hybrid shaft to be 10g heavier than my fairway wood shaft, could I pick the option below?

 

Oban Devotion 84g Hybrid Stiff Shaft, at 46"

 

When I cut it down to 42", will it´s final weight be 77g?

Not exactly.  You need to use the cut shaft length, not the club playing length.    Cut shaft length = Playing length minus BBGM minus grip cap contribution.   But you don't really have to w

But you don't really have to worry about the exact cut weight progressions.  That's one way but just using the uncut shaft weight is usually close enough when determine good potential weight progressions in the set.

 

Just realize recommended shaft weight progressions are just that - recommendations.  They tend to  work in many cases but not all.   Ideally shaft weight should be fit separately for each club type (driver, fairway, hybrid, iron, wedge).
