Turn a fairway wood into a hybrid?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Has anyone ever tried to turn a fairway wood into a hybrid?
I bought my first hybrid this week!
Cleveland classic 3h 20.5*.... Love it!
Now I have a DCT 3fw @ 15* & a 5fw @18*
The classics 2h & 3h are exactly the same loft and lie as my DCT fw's and a similar shape,
So I'm considering re shafting them at the classics length using the ust v2 high launch hybrid shafts! As I struggle getting these fw's up off the deck!
Surely I'm not the only person who's thought of this??? Any thoughts???

Kinda sounds like you're building the Perfect Club.

That's the plan! I was kinda hoping someone would say... "I did exactly the same thing and it's the best thing I ever did!"
I'll be getting a club fitter to do it properly so the swing weights match!
In theory it sounds great! I was just wondering if anyone knew of a reason they won't work?

@Hardballs ,  let us know how it works.  I find it much easier to hit my 3 hybrid than my 3 wood.  Could just be a shaft length issue for me though.

I didn't re-shaft, but I did experiment with what you're suggesting...

I had cut down an older 4 wood for my daughter some time ago. It had a shaft that was too soft for me and figured it would be good for her to learn on. She has since moved to a new set and when I was looking for a fairway wood to outfit a bag for behind my truck seat, there in my club bin sat the shortened 4 wood. It measures at 0.5 inches longer than my Cleveland Halo 2 hybrid and plays stiffer with the cut down shaft. It is a fantastic club off the deck and out of light to medium rough!!

Would probably be even better if I'd re-shaft but works the way it is and so what the heck!
