I purchaed the evolver from Rock bottom golf for cheap - and it comes with a regular shaft and I want to put in a new shaft ( XS )

It has .350 tip. I purchased a set of .350 shaft hosels off ebay.

Now....

If I buy any .350 tip shaft will it work and be as easy as me taking it to a pro shop for them to insert into the hosel adapter thing, then into the club?

Or is there something I am missing?

I believe you are missing something. One manufacturer's stiff or extra stiff may be another manufacturer's regular.

The head is fairly light, about 190 grams. So, an extra stiff won't flex as much using that head.

Rock Bottom has a disgusting habit of just installing an unfinished shaft into the Evolver head. By that, I mean when you order the Pershing stiff shaft with the Evolver, they just install it untipped, and it cpm's at about 232, about lady's flex. From what I have read, when you get a Pershing stiff, you need to tip it about an inch to get it to play to stiff flex.

You may be able to take a new shaft to a club shop, and ask them to have it cpm to between 250-260 cpm's. Also, mention the 190 gram head weight, which they would take into consideration in arriving at a good cpm for you.

If you have the cyg hosel, the answer is yes. Just take the hosel and shaft to the club shop. They should be able to determine if they need to tip the shaft for you. They would install the shaft into the hosel and put a grip on.

You should also have the Nickent wrench (should have come with the driver) to get the club head off of the current hosel. If you don't, I think a quarter inch allen wrench will work.

Also Nickent made 2 versions of the Evolver.  My guess if you bought it off Rockbottomgolf (as did I) it probably came with the hossel that allows for easy swapping of shafts but is not adjustable.    There is also another version with the CYG hossel which allows face angle changes and perhaps even loft adjustments.

If you have one of the above versions, but the hossel adapter (ebay), buy the shaft you want and have a clubbuilder install the shaft into the adapter and attach it to the head using the wrench.

Interesting, I bought one from RBG with a UST Proforce V2 High Launch with a senior flex.  Granted its a senior flex but does feel much softer than a normal sr flex.

Downside is I butt cut it to play at 45".

Might need to tip cut it and make it play a little firmer.  downside is my swingweight would be super low and the shaft characteristics would be very off.

    • Can you share some information about your computer, such as OS?
    • There used to be a joke about the instructional articles in Golf Digest.  It might still be there, I haven't subscribed in years.  Anyway, every odd-numbered month, the lesson would be "fix your slice," but what they wouldn't tell you is that it'd cost you 10 yards.  In even numbered months, they'd tell you how to gain 10 yards on your tee shot, but not tell you that it'd cause you to slice. YouTube instruction is a bit like that.  You'll get conflicting information that may or may not cancel out.  Find someone reputable and get lessons for you not for some generic you. If you need someone online to give you something to work on, and don't feel like spending the money for something quality like Evolvr (hey, money was tight when I took up golf, I understand), at least make a "My Swing" thread and try what ends up being suggested for you.  The first time I did this, I was shocked at how someone could watch a few swings on video and give me good advice of what to practice that resulted in some improvement.
    • No. At best you’re going to get conflicting advice that may or may not work with other things you’re trying to do in your swing. 
    • It’s been a month or two since I last played, but I took Classic out for a spin, and it worked just fine. The data was able to transfer from my device using my computer as well. 
    • Do you guys watch or like any YouTube instructions channel? I’m as a newbie follow a few that think help me learned. It might not better than lesson but for now it will do. I plan to take specific lesson though like griping and swing path. I watch a lot from Danny Maude and Mike Breed.
