Driver shaft length. Should i have my Ping Anser Diamana Ahina cut down?

5 posts in this topic

Hey everyone

been reading a lot lately about driver length and a sort of threshold between gaining distance and controlling the club

I would like to have a slightly more inside out path and was thinking considering my height that It might be a good move.

My six iron carries 185-190 which isn't the longest but I'm not afraid to loose a little on the driver distance wise if i can gain some control.

I've also read a few horror stories where golfers have cut down the shaft and it never felt right again.

Being the the Ahina is a slightly stiffer shaft for its "rating" I just want to know if anyone out there has done it and how did i work out for you.

thanks

Adam

Well that's good to hear.  I just had it cut down and inch and will pick it up this afternoon.

Will probably take a few swings on their track man to see what i can see.

I have a 910 D3 with the ahina x-stiff. I had it butt-trimmed from 45" to 44" and absolutely love it. I can't say it feels at all different, but the results were very good.

LAST YEAR I WAS SWINGING PING I20 9.5 DRIVER WITH A 46" GRAPHALLOY RED STIFF. SWING WEIGHT D-10. DISTANCE WAS SO SO (270 AVERAGE) BUT VERY STRAIGHT.  I JUST WENT TO PING ANSER, SET AT STANDARD 9.5 W/ 45.25 DIAMANA STIFF. NOW IM 15 YARDS LONGER AND EVEN STRAIGHTER. I WAS CONCERNED ABOUT THE SHORTER LENGHT BEING AN ISSUE WITH DISTANCE BUT NOT IN THIS CASE. IM NOW CLOSER TO A 280+ AVERAGE W/ LOTS OF ROLL. PRETTY HAPPY AT 51 YEARS OF AGE!
