Extending Back to Standard


Recommended Posts

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.

    • And with that, you lose. (In the minds of many.)
    • Perhaps that guy is(was) the exception? Plus, I think the 6,000,000 number might be way low. ... not that it matters. I get your point and I also immediately thought of that guy. It's kind of hard to argue that he's not 100% evil. For now, I think it would be wise to leave him out of the conversation. That one is still very painful for a lot of folks.  Having said all of that. I don't think we've ever had a president who is(was) 100% evil. 
    • Yeah, it’s an old topic. Was more appropriate here than the 2021 TOC topic.
    • Haven't posted a video in a while. I have been working really hard on my swing... REALLY HARD.  Anyway, I don't have any new video to post. But I do have some old video to post.  I'm just sticking these here as a benchmark to where I was. The first one is a 2009 video of my driver swing. This is back when I was working with my previous swing coach. I was playing well at the time, handicap was around 10-14. My miss at the time was a snap hook.  I know the exposure stinks. Again, it's just a benchmark for me.    The next two videos are from 2015. At the time I was between swing coaches. My handicap at the time was around 16. Although I distinctly remember playing some great and some horrible rounds at the time. At the time I was really REALLY REALLY fighting the snap hook. Some days the snap hook would be manageable and I would score really well. Other times, I simply wouldn't be able to get off the tee. The swing coach I would get about a year and a half after these videos were taken would be the swing coach I'd end up sticking with up until now.  Again, I'm just sticking these here for my reference.     
    • You really believe that nobody is 100% evil? There are at least 6,000,000 people that would have disagreed with you. But they're dead.
