i'm wondering if somebody with some experince in using shaft
extensions might be able to help me out with a few questions i've got.
so this is my story so far. for the last 3 seasons i've been playing
top-flite tour grinds which are +2* and +1". about 4mo ago a friend
had a set of new maxfli blade heads he wanted to get rid of and i took
them. i put in balistiks which i trimmed to quite a stiff flex and
have been quite happy with. one thing i also did was to try them at
+3/4" so they are in essence a quarter inch shorter than my top-flites
were. i was generally happy with them when i first built the clubs but
just find that as my swing is hitting a nice groove, that i tend to be
reaching for the ball and have decided to return to +1" in my irons.
so my options are i can do it the simple way and put shaft extensions
into my irons or i can do it the difficult way and remove the shafts
from all of my irons, cut a new 2i shaft and move the rest down a club
and then trim a quarter inch from them. ie take the 4i shaft and trim
1/4" from the tip and then put it into the 5i.
the later method seems laborious though it will probably result in the
best results. so my question is. if i go with the shaft extensions
will i notice any difference in the playability of the irons compared
with the reshafting method?? how about differences in swingweight
between the two methods?? anything else i'm forgetting about??
