Hi guys,

I'm looking for a recommendation for a replacement shaft for my Cleveland HiBore XLS 3 wood. It was originally fitted with a Fujikura Red Tour Trajectory Stiff Flex Shaft but due to a mishap on the weekend I'm looking for a replacement. I know I could just buy a new 3 wood but I've grown to love this club and have a matching driver and 5 wood. I have a good balance of control and distance with the club and I know most of this is probably down to the shaft but along with this the club at address has always given me confidence.

Anyway, back to the point of this thread. I'm looking for an equivalent replacement. The Fujikura spec is as follows: Weight 65g, Torque 3.1, Kickpoint Mid/High, Flex Stiff.

Shaft also has to be available to buy after market in the UK.

Many thanks in anticipation of your help.


In my bag:

Driver: Cleveland HiBore XLS Draw 9 o Stiff

Woods: Cleveland HiBore XLS 3 and 5 Wood Stiff

Hybrids: Adams Idea a12 OS 19 o and 22 o Stiff

Irons: Cleveland Ta6 5-PW

Wedges: MD Golf Seve Icon 52 o and 56 o

Putter: Odyssey White Hot Pro N o 9

Bag: Titleist Sta-Dry Stand Bag

Ball: Srixon AD333

Cleveland HiBore XLS is rather old now - consequently quite a few turn up on Ebay on a regular basis - complete with Fujikura Red stiff shafts attached. It's certainly a lot cheaper than buying an aftermarket equivalent and getting it fitted. Prices are around £40 and the match is exact rather than a near equivalent. The F1 65 is NOT a close match IMO and frankly there are around a coupled of hundred other shafts that meet the 65g mid/high criteria which would be a closer match, but it would be easier to buy the real thing rather than speculate on what would or wouldn't be an equivalent to the club you want.

Thanks for the feedback guys, I hadn't really thought of just buying a club from ebay for use of the shaft. It's an old club but one I like, I still hit it further than any new clubs I've tried at demo days. Plus I like the looks (not everyone's cup of tea I know!). Thanks for the help! Matt

    • I did, too, but now they’re apparently trying to walk it back and scrambling to save face.   Deservedly so. Wilson should have gotten one, too, and suspended.   Just to play a little devil’s advocate, could their line of thinking be to hire these types of guys because they “understand” how to be rough without crossing the line? Or that they understand the difference between being physical and having intent to injure? Not saying I agree with it or believe it, but I’m just trying to see it from a different perspective.
    • I estimate first putt length. When I first took AimPoint, we practiced estimating distance because it was part of the mid-read technique. It’s pretty easy once you break the putt into sections visually. 
    • Thanks for the post and update. I think we are all waiting for them to resolve these issues. I don’t want to abandon it for another system just yet. I do hope they resolve it soon.
    • I assume you do this during "downtime" on the green, when nobody is putting and not waiting until your turn to putt.  Trust me, pacing off a 30 footer, both ways for 60 feet, is time consuming.  But not if you do it while someone else is lining up a putt.
    • I pace off every putt and I am a fast player. I also use the process to 'feel' the green slope under my feet, especially near the hole (obviously being careful of other's line). It takes no time at all and will not contribute to slow play. With the feel under my feet, I am actually more confident of the break and spend less time optically confiming slope than some of my playing partners.
