Are shafts for fairway woods typically heavier than driver shafts?

Recommended Posts

I currently have a Mitsubishi Diamana Blueboard 63g stiff shaft in my driver and love it. Now I’m thinking of getting one for a 3 or 5 wood. Should I stick with the same weight or is the conventional wisdom a fairway wood shaft should be a bit heavier?

If you're driver shaft is 63g you will need a 73g in the fairway.As the shaft is shorter you will need extra weight to keep the same swing weights consistent...

Not necessarily. Check out the specs of the shaft and 3 Wood on the OEM website. It also depends on your physical characteristics. There is no rule. Just play what fits you
