The issue is getting all confused. Recently, I had the driver replaced due to a cosmetic issue. ALl graphite shafts have far smaller core area down the center of the shaft than do steel shafts.

Yes for sure there is a matter of having to figure out what to do about the swingweight or rather, the headweight FEEL of the driver after it has been cut down in length. Nothing else is affected in the club from a performance standpoint because you still have the same exact weight in the head as you did before.

But if you add 8g to the grip end, you would have to have a VERY refined sense of feel for the weight distribution of a golf club golg even feel anything.

It could also be an indication that the weight of the KBS shaft is too heavy for you hheadweight your swing as well, however the fact you say you did well with the same shaft in the other set of irons is more of an indication that somehow the swingweight of this set with the same shafts was made to be too high.

So my next experiment is to put the staffs in the bag and play a few rounds. Believe what you will but Hfadweight extended my 46″ driver 1. It ends up not working and I have to replace the shaft all together which was the only other option.

In the end, you can put a little weight into the shaft, but the balance of the weight you need to add to get the head weight feel up there heavy enough to be comfortable to your sense of weight feel will have to be done by putting lots of lead tape on the back of each iron head. All times are GMT Maybe to a local fitter in your area. Gap as far gilf overall length from driver to 3 wood was a bit of a work out process for most, and usually the 2 clubs ended up being within an inch of each other.

Well I feel like a heel for headwejght you the wrong information for your very descriptive response. The MOI of the club is controlled by two things.

So any information or opinion would be greatly appreciated. If this means using a 15 degree wood with a 42″ shaft, so be it. Notify me of followup comments via e-mail. Not surprisingly, it was largely our mid-to-high handicap golfers who showed the most improvement with the shorter shaft.


Tom 3 years ago. Steffan March 23, The average golf can not do this consistently.

Bought a second hand R7 Superquad and installed a second hand Proforce v2 shaft and cut it down to an overall club length of Craigar 7 years ago. MOI matching of clubs is a way to build clubs so every club requires the same effort to swing and to unhinge our wrist-cock angle on the downswing same effort to release the club to hit the ball. Actually, it is somewhat interesting that given the fact swingweight was invented some 90 yrs ago, it really was a somewhat close attempt at matching the MOI of clubs.

Do you know if Golfspy is planning on doing a review on the Wilson Staff Di11 irons? Their last offering I paid attention to was So the longer that dashed line, the higher the MOI about the spine axis, and from it, the more load placed back on the golfer. Mike August 11, Another well thought through, well implemented and nicely summarized article and test. We use that in combination with height to determine a viable starting point for the length of the irons.
