I'm gonna splurge this weekend and buy a set of Rocketbladez irons. I demoed them last week and loved them. One thing - the shafts on the demo clubs were one inch longer than normal stock RBz shafts, which are 1/4" longer than normal shafts already. The thing is, I really felt comfortable with the longer shafts, even though the 6 iron was about as long as my current 4 iron. They just felt natural. I'm 6'2 with about a 36 inch wrist-to-floor measurement. I've been fitted a couple of times, and they all say I should be using shafts that are 1/4 or 1/2 inch longer at most, but definitely not 1 1/4 inches longer.
Question - I'm thinking of getting the clubs and adding 3/4 inch to the shafts to make them slightly shorter than those that I demoed. Is it possible that my swing faults right now are what makes the longer clubs feel better? I don't want to buy any irons for a while, and I'm wondering if when I improve I'll be wishing that I had purchased the "proper" length for me because my swing will have actually changed. Question 2 - Is it wise to just choke up on the shafts if I find them to be too long in the future? Does it make a difference?
Any suggestions would be welcome. Thanks.
