Can't decide to whether to get g10 driver at 45.75'' or 45''

any suggestions?
Hi guys, I have a g10 ordered but I'm having second thoughts about getting it at stock length and am thinking of going to 45.

I'm 6'3 but am still fit to standard length (mizuno, tm std)

My main concern though is about losing the sw, I'm not sure how much they can put back.

Although the lady on the ping phone line said because i'm getting an x flex they can make it a bit heavier than normal.

I wish ping would make some heads heavier for shorter orders.

ss 108 distance trackman said distance is 285 on a decent hit.

Any thoughts?

Not really too sure, because unfortunately with all of pings custom fitting jazz, they don't offer the simplest thing.

Shaft length. Its really odd that manufacturers go to all this work with face angle loft etc, and don't offer a couple head weights so you can shorten the club with out messing it up.

I have personally found that while the swingweight does change significanlty with a 3/4" change in length, I cannot tell the difference in performance. It seems to have the same effect as just choking down an inch. The swingweight of the club itself has not changed, but the dynamic (or "felt") swingweight has changed - the club feels lighter when choking down (or is it choking up?). Sooooo, I usually build my drivers long (46") and choke down an inch on shots where I need more control. That way I can "let it out" on safer/wider holes and pick up a few yards IF I catch it flush.

I guess it depends on the person, but I'd probably notice a 4.5 point change in swingweight in my driver. Who knows though, some people don't... and some people just think they do.

Just my .02, get it stock length at 45.75" and try it out for a while. If u're not comfortable, just choke down on the grip. That's basically what I do now, because I guess I'm not good enough to notice the differences when I had my '09 Cleveland Launcher cut down to 44 1/4" with shaft stabilizer (shaft broke on me the beginning of summer, so send it 2 Cleveland 4 re-shaft) and now having it back to stock length (45.5") and choking down on it. To me, feels like the performance is about the same or maybe even better when choking down, but it could also be that I'm now more comfortable with this driver (or my swing/game has improved by a tiny bit?).
Best of luck with whatever u decide!
