So I get the Precision Rifle 4.5 shafts - "tip trimmed and frequency
matched" - it says. And each shaft in deed has a sticker - "0215.5 CPM",
"0214.9 CPM", etc. All numbers are pretty close - 214.1 to 0217.0. They
are trimmed to some lengths with .5 inch differences and the tips are
roughed up about a inch or so. The have purple marker dots on the shaft
near the grip ends.
They have ferrules that fit the Argus Ti-2000 oversize iron heads almost
perfectly - perhaps <1/64" over size to be ground down. They balance (with
a grip ***-banded to the proper end) about 6 1/4" from the end of the
ferrule (uncut). So far so good...
Here are the "dumb" questions -
1) They are supposed to be for 2 - PW but the 2 shortest are the same
length - 36 3/4 " and the longest is 40 5/16". Looks to me that they are
intended to be ***trimmed to standard or custom length? Or did I get a
3-SW set since the two short ones are the same???
2) Does this sound like a good frequency match range?
2) They have purple marker dots on the shaft near the grip end - might those
be indicators of the "spine" or the frequency match point? If so, how
should I fit it to the face of the clubs - pointed at the top of the club or
in the same direction as the face? Or someplace else?
I am not headed for the ba***t to epoxy them together yet - I'm going to
wait until after the GolfSmith class on Saturday and some advice from the
experts of RSG. But my hands are sweating to get at it!
