  • Putting my driver shaft into my hybrid?

    I recently made the switch to a lighter shaft into my M3 driver - Fuji pro 2.0 Tour spec (67g), and would like to switch to a lighter shaft in my M4 Hybrid as well which currently plays at 85g. My old driver shaft was a Fuji Pro 73 (77g). If I were to put my old driver shaft into my hybrid and cut it down, would that work?

    Also if there's already a Taylormade driver tip on the shaft, would I be able to put that into my hybrid?

    Not sure if the adapter will fit - did you try it?. Chances are the shaft will be too soft as the hybrid head weighs quite a bit more than your driver head - which will soften the flex by head weight alone - let alone - no tipping of the shaft.

      probably wont fit, most drivers and fairway woods are .335 inch diameter

      most irons and hybrids are .370 inch diameter

      Sportsyard in Mississauga has hundreds of shafts on sale (cheap) you would be able to find something that would work there

        you'd probably lose all of the tip to bring it to hybrid length, which is not recommended.

        A 5 wood length is feasible for a driver shaft reuse.
        Things change.

          I have a somewhat similar question. What would be the effect to the club if I used the shaft of my 5wood to a 3wood head, and use the 3 wood shaft to a Driver (discard the 3wood in my bag since I rarely hit it straight). These are stock shafts for same brand so same adpater. Reason for doing this is to square the club on address. I'm 5'4" and play iron 2 flat.

            Depending on the lengths of those shafts, they would most likely make your 5w and driver play shorter than you normally play them.

            Essentially you are hard stepping these wood shafts, so they would play stiffer.

            As as mentioned above, shafts are normally tipped based on headweights.

            As an example, for a 46” uncut wood shaft, it would be no tip trim for driver, 1/2” for 3 wood, 1” for 5 wood.

            Doesn’t hurt to try as an experiment. Might work out or might not. There is no one size fits all.

              This can work and will reduce the overall length. However swing weight may change drastically.

              At 5'4" I do strongly suggest you review my True Length Technology technique for club build or correction. 2 flat probably helps but will still not optimize your sticks to perform as you hope.
