Found this topic while looking for a different one, but lawncare is one of my other primary hobbies besides golf. Here are a couple shots of mine from this past season. Just did the last mow of the year last weekend.
Back in May after a double cut
And in September - can see my hot peppers growing back in the garden too. I grew 8 plants this year and easily got a couple hundred peppers
My family came from Detroit, and even though I grew up in northern Virginia, we'd visit Detroit every summer. My grandfather lived really close to Chandler Park, but on occasion we drove "all the way out there" to Plumbrook. I was really just starting the game in high school, so my memories of it are pretty hazy, but it was a real treat at that time.
My husband and I learned golf together and we both love it. We play together every weekend during April-November. For the winter months, we ski every weekend together. There’s no time for anything else. Vacations we take are almost all golf/ski related.
My husband has a very demanding job so he only has time on weekends. But I golf/ski during the week on my own/with friends. There were a few times he couldn’t play or ski due to injuries but he’d still ride the rounds with me or take me to the mountain and wait at the lodge.
I don’t watch sports on tv with him because I usually have other things to do in the house.
We have been together for 25 years, married for 17 and we haven’t gotten tired of each other yet.
When I met my wife, she quickly learned of my devotion to the game. For first couple years, she wanted it to be my thing. Recently, she has taken an interest in wanting to try it. Either way is good by me. Would be fun as a family with our kid to go golf. But, either way, I’ll have my time with the game.
You need to remember that the fulcrum for a swing weight scale sits at 14 inches from the butt end of the club. That means that the majority of whatever shaft you are using will be out past the fulcrum. Therefore the shaft weight plays a greater influence on the head side of the club vs. the grip and why a heavier shaft will increase SW more than a lighter one.
Of course there are also shaft balance points to take into consideration but for this example I am assuming our hypothetical shafts are the same other than material and weight.
Your example above would depend on the weights of the two shafts since 38.5 to 39.5 would usually equal 6 SWP. Your weight difference breakeven would be around 54g to tip the scale either way.
