Extending Back to Standard

Hey Everyone,

This is a played out topic, but this case is a little different. Couple of years ago I cut my iron down .5 inches (half an inch). I thought I might like the control better. I didn't notice the swing weight change, but I am going to return them to standard. I did a lie test with a line on the golf ball, and they are a little upright. And I cant turn it over as well as I think I used too. I might just be mentally crazy. LOL. I did not do any weight adjustments, I just took the grips off and cut them down. I play forged Mizunos with XP 115 Stiff shafts. If I put extensions in to return them to normal, replacing the half in back, will I notice anything in shaft performance from the original standard? I know there might be a slight difference in weight in the butt of the shaft. Just wondering if I should re-shaft, or if extensions would play just as well.

Thanks!

You shouldn't notice much with a 1/2 inch.

You can buy extensions, for steel shafts, in steel, graphite, or aluminum.  None of them, once trimmed, add any significant weight to the butt end.

1/2 inch will offer little change other than the 3 swing weight points heavier. If you like the shafts you have, just extend them. I might recommend just doing a couple irons first and taking them out to the range to see if you are getting the results you were hoping for before doing the whole set.

    • Thanks for braving the cold and putting this video up! You've got a nice and efficient swing. I look forward to seeing more!  Ps. The straps are definitely long enough to fit a dump truck. I like to tuck them as well, but could be trimmed too. 
    • Barely above freezing, sleet and drizzle, gusty wind off of L Huron. 143 yds to the pin. Drop 1 1/2 clubs and smooth a knock down 7 iron under the wind. It flies dead straight, no more than 50' off the ground and ends up overhanging the cup. It looked physically impossible it wouldn't drop when I got there. At least I made the birdie putt. lol.
    • Thanks for the positive experience you shared.
    • Maybe yipper’s should go side saddle or use a wedge instead.    Just change it all up. 😁 I’ve always enjoyed using the TPM aid. Pushes you towards a fluid motion. I also wonder if making more putting games on the practice greens would help.
    • I am saving a small fortune (to me) on car maintenance and gas, clothing and lunches. Just heard, no plan to return until at least April.  I get two hours a day of commuting time back in my life. Due to MS Teams use by the company, I'm getting my stretching and pushups done throughout the work day.  I'm more productive at work., from home. After losing employment, My son and his better half, moved to a smaller community and both obtained full time employment immediately. Folks , stay safe and healthy
