Now that I've learned how easy it is to regrip a club, the thought of cutting my driver down is even more in my mind.
The club as it currently stands: Srixon Z-Star, set at D4 swingweight. Adjustable weights, and I have a few extra. Miyazaki Dromos 59R shaft. The club is currently 46" long as well, stock grip.
My thoughts, plus needing some math help....
Being 5'6", I know that I need a shorter driver. The Regular flex seems to be in between flexes for em. My miss lately has been high and off the toe. So I thought that I would start off at 44".
1st question: Where should I trim the 2" off? Would tipping it an ince and then butt cutting it an inch be a horrible plan? Advantaged of tipping it or just cutting the 2" off the butt?
2nd question: Swingweight. Obviously, I'm going to lose quite a bit of weight from the club. The grip that's going on weighs 49 grams.
Help me with the math. I am taking 2" off a shaft which equates to about a __________ change in swingweight. I can get the swingweight up to D7 in standard form using the 11 and 7g weights. D4 with the 11 and 3 or 7 and 7, and D1 with the 7 and 3g weights in it. In order to get the swingweight back to a reasonable amount, say D3, _____________ weight must be added into the head.
I have 4 weights for my driver: 11, 7, 7, and 3.... Just need to see if I need to find any extras, which may be tough for that driver.
Any basics you can give me would rock, I really need to get something better fit for my diminutive size, and a 46" driver isn't doing it.
