New shaft for 3 Wood

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

Hi all!

 

I am wanting to reshaft my 2009 Cleveland Launcher.  It currently has the stiff yellow Fit On Fujikura shaft.  For me this shaft has too active of a tip and it's hard for me consistently square up the face at impact.  I hit the ball pretty high with so I can stand to lose to height on it.  Any and all recommendations are welcome!

Mitsubishi rayon Diamana D+. It's not cheap but it is a very high quality shaft with a stiff tip section, I believe Tiger plays it (so it must be good lol)

Looked in 2009/2010 catalogs, and there's at least four varieties of Fuji Fit-On shafts, both in general components catalogs and in OEM club brochures. Both Callaway and Cleveland used FFOs as stock shafts on certain woods.

 

What are the specs on your yellow Fit On? Weight, kickpoint, flex?

 

You would probably do best to get on a launch monitor and get fitted. Use current shaft as baseline, then look for better performance data.

Specs for fit on gold.  60 grams, low-mid kickpoint, stiff flex, 3.5 torque, active tip.  I was having similar issues a while back with my driver and I put on a UST proforce V2 X-stiff, 67 grams, 2.8 torque and it has helped a lot.  Lowered my ball flight and has tightened up my dispersion.

I looked on the UST.Mamiya website for V2 details. Instructions show tip trim for Driver, 3W, 5W and 7W. So, your driver shaft could be used in your 3W. (Some shafts are designed specifically for drivers)

 

Only consideration: do you want to softstep it for a slight edge on launch off the fairway?

Yeah I'm not wanting to put my driver shaft into my 3 wood. But I Just gave that info for a reference point as I didn't know if I needed to go with something similar in my 3 wood

I have ProLaunch Reds in my driver, 3-wood, and hybrids. I know the hybrids use a separate shaft from the driver/woods, but the driver and 3-wood are probably the same. I do like it though, as it's a lower launch/spin shaft than most of the stock shafts out there.

Agreed.. I have them on my 3 & 5 wood and love them. I have replaced every club in my bag this year except for those......
