Is my shaft .580 or .600 ?

Recommended Posts

Hello,

Just joined the site, haven't done my welcome section yet though, will get it done tomorrow probably.

Anyways, I've done some productive work today and cut all my old grips and tape off my irons because I'm getting new grips.

They are 94/95 Spalding Elite Tour Balancing System / Shaft says: True Temper Pro Fit , I'm not sure if they are .580 or .600.

Any help would be much appreciated.

I would get the .580 grips.  That way if the diameter is .580 you are standard and if they are really .600 you are slightly larger (.020) than standard.  Not to worry though because most manufacturers consider the new standard as a .580 on a .600 butt.  I have had my grips set up that way for the last 18 years.

Agree, It's not going to matter much.  As long as they are 'standard' size grips, they will be standard size regardless of the butt diameter.

Don't think that tell us what type of shaft you got. http://www.golfworks.com/category.asp_Q_pc_E_2_A_c_E_79_A_c2c_E_ln

I don't want to be harsh to all the previous posts but since he cut off the grips why not (drum roll please)  MEASURE THEM!

Take them to a hardware store and have them use a calipers for you and throw them a buck or two.  Or purchase a cheap plastic vernier caliper.

Since the thread is over a year old, chances are the OP has solved the issue by now.

Since the world wide web is still attracting inquiring minds that read forums, and since the OP's question and answer senario is repeated over and over thus the time stamp is really irrelavant I would say.

    • @Mr. Desmond, methinks I spoke too soon.  What do you want to bet, he IS back?  (under different screen name however). As in gambling, there are "tells". However, I will now take my leave and NOT engage.
    • I am not sure. Maybe 10-12 years old. I remember when I purchased them, I told myself they were the last  set of irons I would buy.  My fairway woods are probably 7, or 8 years old.  My putter is the great grand pa in my bag. I also have a couple of loose iron clubs that are pretty old.  Both my irons, and woods still serve me quite well. They are quality stuff. 
    • I'm interested in skytrak and other similar devices (more affordable at home indoor launch monitors).  I've been reading about them and watching reviews, and every single one seems to analyze the accuracy of the distance related numbers.  I don't care about distance when it comes to these devices, I only care about directional accuracy.  I want to know if I'm hitting the ball straight.     Are there reviews out there that I haven't found that focus on this aspect of these devices?
    • Avoid the greenside bunkers at all costs. If you end up in one, strongly consider playing at the center of the green instead of at the flag. And by strongly consider, I mean do that unless you're 100% sure you can pull off the shot without ending in another greenside bunker. 
    • This is pretty much what all teaching is based on.  The idea that changes in your alignments will make you a better player.   If a player comes in with either too strong or two weak a grip or a flying right elbow or a flat swing or an upright swing, the average teacher wants too change it.   I too believe there is certain things you can do to change your swing.  But I more importantly believe that a proper transition fixes a lot of little details.  I think most people would agree that tiger, jack, Sam Snead, Ben hogan, lee Trevino, and nick faldo are some of the best ball strikers and best winners of all time.   But Trevino had a really strong grip and hogan had a really weak one.  So any where in between will work.  Hogan had a really tucked elbow and jack had a flying elbow.  So anywhere in between will work.   Sam Snead had a pretty upright swing as did jack and tiger but hogan and Trevino both much flatter.  So anywhere inbetween will work. All these players do have one thing in common and that is a similar lower bodie transition
