G25 Driver Shaft length

3 posts in this topic

I was checking my impact with spray foot powder while hitting on a launch monitor.  I visit the center of the face more often than not but I also visit the surrounding area.  The shaft on the G25 is long, 45.75 according to ping.  I want a shorter shaft for more control.

Is it as simple as choking up or do I need to do something more?

Thanks

I would start by choking down on the club.

You can go and get the shaft cut, but I found that it does make the club feel different (lighter). The swing weight will change. It shouldn't really change the performance of the shaft, just changes how the club feels. For you, you might be taking as much as an inch off the shaft, that is pretty substantial in terms of swing weight change.

Put a rubber band around the end to reinforce choking down. Sometimes you may want the extra shaft length on a wide open par 5. My driver is 45" and I choke down an inch. Your best shaft length may be 43' or 44". Experiment and see. I'd hate to cut down that much shaft though. The black girl (Sedena?? forgot her name) on Big Break last time really choked down on her driver and she bombed it pretty well.
