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.

    • Well the only thing in that response that is that it’s correct that people shouldn’t assume that Native Americans are sitting around fuming about this.  And personally that wouldn’t be my concern here.   While it’s important to try and consider the feelings of others (try it some time!), I personally don’t think that what this country did to Native Americans was right and I don’t think we should be using a name like that.  As we grow as a culture (try it some time!) we find these things and need to evaluate whether we are going to far, or not enough to have an inclusive society.  Or even just trying to be respectful.      whether the people you know feel differently, we’ll that’s fine.   That’s their opinion and that’s mine. please post your address so I can send you a mirror.  It might help with being able to see the opinion of arrogant white men.  
    • It’s going to come down to companies and non-government institutions to make things better.  Our political system, and politics, are too fractured for cooperation.  I even think a blanket federal mandate has big issues.  We don’t need everyone vaccinated, just more than we have.   I’m fine to have a solid 10% of people who don’t get it because they think Bill Gates is microchip happy, or it’s going to turn you into a Mole person.   Or whatever morons whose sandwich count is well short of a picnic.
    • It looking more and more like Michigan is going to be going back to masks required.   Nothing official yet but several counties have such a huge uptick that they are recommended that masks be worn for everyone.   MSU and UM have now made requirements for all staff, facility and students be vaccinated.  
    • I’m not a big fan of that drill. It can cause your right elbow to get stuck on your side. I like this drill better and the feel that the right arm widens the backswing. Also, ‘staying connected’ doesn’t really mean that your arms should be glued to your sides. Check this thread out.  
    • Bullshit. You’re trolling. Did you poll any other native Americans or just the ones who would agree with your take? Or maybe your ‘friend’ just agreed with you because they are tired of your endless whining. Stop embarrassing yourself with your ‘silliness’.
