I need help tipping my new shafts for "one length" irons

So I bought new fujikura pro 63i shafts for my cobra f7 one length irons and I'm trying to figure out what to tip them at. I've read variable lengths is 1/2 for 3iron and 1/2 for each club after descending order. The original shafts are all a 7 iron from what I understand, so by sticking to that if I cut 2.5 inches off the tip then cut to length I should be good correct? I dont want to cut and then realize I messed up. Any help is appreciated thankyou.

Yes, if you are using one length irons where all the heads are the same weight, you would ideally tip all the shafts the same. However there are no hard and fast rules. If you have issues with the long irons, you also have the option of tipping them a bit less to help give you a bit more launch height. Just depends what you need.

As mentioned, contact Cobra and also contact Fujikura. Call: 1 800 728 6420 Have a question? #AskChad



Pending your intentions, you could consider soft-stepping or hard-stepping to achieve results for each iron.
Also you might consider mix-matching S-Flex and R-Flex for achieving desired results.

Generally when equipment is modified, it becomes "trial and error" to achieve the right fit.
I suggest build the 6 or 7 iron first to test. Then build from test results.

I would call Cobra as possibly the very last resort. You will not get any useful information from anyone there, or any OEM for that matter. Sorry, this sort of thing is above the pay grade of anyone you would talk to. May have slightly better chance calling Fuji.

Again though it's more educated guess when dealing with one length clubs based on weight and desired help with ball flight.

    • Plumbrook is short and none too difficult. But a fun course to play and go try to hit bombs all day. If you really play it to score (For me long irons or fairway woods off the tees for well placed pitch and chip in opportunities) it can be an easy course to score on. Greens are usually in good shape and roll true. I lived very close to Chandler Park until I got married in '91 at the age of 32. I used to play 9 in the morning on my way to work on those long days close to the summer solstice.
    • How to get rid of the stuff, that is the question I have. I don't feel like just throwing out my stuff but the thought of selling, packaging and shipping is not appealing. Plus I don't think my stuff is worth anything really. At last count I had 11 putters, 6 drivers, three sets of irons, and an untold number of wedges, chippers, hybrids, etc. Is there a place you can donate to?  
    • Here is a video on "Custom Wedge Shafts" you may find interesting:  The whole question of High Launch vs Low Launch shafts generally applies to driver fittings; here are two videos on that subject you may find interesting:      With respect to my wedge game and testing etc.; I have found minor differences as far as launch angle (measured on a GCQuad) with various stock shafts found on off the rack wedges from the major manufacturers. For me the biggest impact on launch conditions is my delivery of the club head to the ball at impact. A long time ago I had picked up the following tip for hitting a low trajectory shot (I cannot recall where and from who this originated). Called the 2-2-2 setup. Grip two inches down; place the ball back 2 in from normal; pull your front foot back 2 inches. Generally when i use this technique it is with a 1/2 (9 o'clock?) to 3/4 swing (10:30?). Oftentimes I will use this swing with the driver as my "fairway finder" into the wind or with a cross-wind; also when having to keep it low because of a tree. I use it a lot on approach shots into the wind or a cross wind.
