Question about switching shafts...

6 posts in this topic

This is going to probably come across as a stupid question but that has never stopped me before so here goes.

Today I took the Kuro Kage Black 60 gram shaft with the FlexLoft adapter for the driver, (8.5 - 12.5) out of my Nike Covert and switched it with my Kuro Kage Silver 70 gram shaft with the FlexLoft adapter for the 3 wood, (13 - 17)...., and I was very surprised how well I hit the ball.

My question is this..., Does this switch actually allow my driver to be adjusted from 13 - 17 degrees? If so I could barely tell a difference in the height of my ball flight but the trajectory was much more of a boring/penatrating flight which my puny brain attributed to the difference in the stiffness and swing weight.

Has anyone else here ever attempted this and if so..., what were the results?

Thanks for any and all responses....., God Bless!!!! Ray

The sleeve just lets you change plus or minus 2 degrees from the base loft of the club. It should let you get the same range of lofts regardless of whether the shaft is in a 3 wood or driver, but not set the driver to 3w loft or vice versa.

The clubhead itself has a loft in the middle of the adjustable range as indicated by the driver adapter (10.5* in this case) and that loft will stay the same with the 3-wood adapter. The only thing that changes is the number on the adapter, where the 13* option is really 8.5* and the 17* option is really 12.5*.

    • Possibly will be going to Barcelona Spain, middle of January.  My wife has her annual meeting over there this year.  Weather doesn't look like it will be great for golf though.  High's typically in the mid-50's.  But any recommendations for golf if we can get in a couple of rounds?
    • Frankly, I'm starting to think that dress codes have become necessary since people refuse to dress appropriately on their own.  Defendants showing up to court in shorts and shirts with the sleeves cut off is indicative of a problem.  A golf course doesn't need to be quite so formal, though. I have pretty minimal views of what is "respectful" on a golf course.  I personally generally wear long pants (sometimes shorts) and a collared shirt, but that's probably due to advances in textiles.  When I was younger, I wore jeans shorts and tee shirts to the local muni because that's what I had that would be remotely comfortable.   Since my friends and I were pretty much the only ones on the course one particular day when our school was the only one not having classes, we decided to take our shirts off and get a tan while golfing.  We were reprimanded by an employee and told to put them back I.  Looking back, I think this was the correct thing to do.  We were just trying to get tans, not be disrespectful, but I think the correction was warranted. I think a Course has the right to apply and enforce a dress code.  I'd hope that they relax it a bit if a visitor were unaware of it when first playing.  If a course does not want a dress code, good for them.  If you think the clientele at your local course is dressed in appropriately, speak with an employee about how you think people should be dressed, state that you will not patronize a place that allows such horrible cretins to breathe the same air as you, and then do not return.  The free market will decide if your business was important enough for them to force your opinions on others.
    • Thanks for sharing.   This is some great information.
    • Fascinating thread, shows how the generations view the world among other factors? And many of the views use extremes to make their point, e.g. cut off jeans, ratty T-shirts. I'm still baffled with the objection to cargo shorts, not the huge baggy ones, but the ones that are the same cut as "golf shorts" with extra pockets on the front. I also don't see how tucking in your shirt or having a collar have much to do with golf. I guess back when players wore plus fours and ties they were outraged at what's acceptable golf attire to much of today's older generation. Again, the Boomers and older generations are keeping younger generations away in droves by clinging to old norms IMHO. The sport will decline further/faster if that persists? Golf is more expensive and takes longer than many competing pastimes, is it really necessary to exacerbate the problem because someone otherwise neatly dressed doesn't have their shirt tucked in with a belt on?
    • So if everyone played Sunday's round on Sunday, they could start the round with LCP and that would be fine, correct?
