  • .5 off 6 iron shaft same as a 7 iron shaft?

    Broke the shaft on my 6 iron and went to Golftown for a replacement.

    Shafts on my irons are .5 inches shorter.

    I asked the guy if it would be the same if I just put a 38 inch 7 iron shaft in it instead.

    He said no as the stiffness would not be the same.

    BS?

    If you put a 7i shaft into a 6i head, that is called Hard-Stepping 1x ( once ). It would stiffen the shaft my 1/3 of a Flex.

    The tech at GT would have a new uncut 6i shaft. He would install it in the head ( no epoxy ), then butt trim to length, then add tip weight to match your set's swing-weight, then epoxy, then install grip.

          He seemed somewhat distracted and maybe a bit of a noob. As it turns out I was the noob.
