Are shafts for fairway woods typically heavier than driver shafts?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

I currently have a Mitsubishi Diamana Blueboard 63g stiff shaft in my driver and love it. Now I’m thinking of getting one for a 3 or 5 wood. Should I stick with the same weight or is the conventional wisdom a fairway wood shaft should be a bit heavier?

From what I've done, and seen other players do, they go about 10 grams heavier in the fairway wood shaft.

If you're driver shaft is 63g you will need a 73g in the fairway.As the shaft is shorter you will need extra weight to keep the same swing weights consistent...

Not necessarily. Check out the specs of the shaft and 3 Wood on the OEM website.

It also depends on your physical characteristics. There is no rule. Just play what fits you
