Stiff Graphite Shaft With Soft Tip?

Just bought a Callaway Razr 5 wood, it's got a soft tip that looks floppy. The guy I bought from said it plays as a regular shaft, I can feel the head in my swing and it's not a nasty feeling. It doesn't have a bad result but I'm wondering what the benefits are or how it can help me, can you tell me what you've found using the soft tip shafts?

You will just have to learn to wait for the shaft flex to unload.
I have a soft tip in a 4 hybrid which took me a while to be patient and slow the swing tempo

When I try to crush it like my 3 hybrid, I push the ball badly to the right.
Soft tip shafts are for lower swing tempo players, IMO.

Thanks for that, it's weird feeling the head so much in my swing as I've never felt it before. Will try to be smooth in future and not crush it, cheers....

The problem with a too soft tip is controlling the club head.  I have a Cobra Long Tom with a stiff shaft and soft tip.  I can knock the ball a country mile...sometimes.  Most often I have to tee up another ball.  It has been retired and now resides, with others of its ilk, on the "Isle of mis-hit toys".
