Totally. I can just really feel the grip so much more on a .5920 shaft vs. a .5919 shaft. With the .5920 shaft, I end up way right and then with the .5919 shaft I just hit it straight. I guess that the .0001 tip differential just gives me that much more turn and I can get the club head around in time.


I can't tell the difference between .335 and .370 other than the associated lengths, haha.

I take it that someone was trying to convince you that they can tell the difference. What were some of the differences that they could tell?

*overfade - as in a major league slice

HAHAH, I like that term and might have to borrow that one. Don't they call it a power fade in long drive? That's absolutely crazy.

Do you know why there are even different size shafts? It is to allow for different weighting of the heads themselves or something else?

I believe I remember being told by Graman shafts that .350 is less costly to produce.

Are those Japaneese graphite or American graphite inch Sizes?
Obviously with the higher standard Japaneese graphite it would be easier to spot the small change but the sloppy American fibers who could tell! Or is it the other way round? I'd go with the one that takes the left side out of play :-)

Andy and Slymer, you're both in luck! I have recently learned the cure to hitting it left vice hitting it right. Andy, you need to start using left handed clubs with a shaft that has, and this is the important part, exactly a 0.3502 diameter tip. Slymer, you can continue with your right handed clubs, but you want to go with a shaft with a 0.3498 tip. It will solve both of your problems, I guarantee it!

Correction:

I asked Graman if my statement ".350 is less costly to produce" was accurate. Here is his response; "That is not accurate at all. Industry went to larger tip for strength and lower torque without using higher modulus graphite. So in a way, I guess your statement is somewhat correct".

My next question to him will what is the difference between a .335 tip and .350. I had always thought it was because the .335 will load and release better but it will be interesting to see what the expert says.

Sort if makes it sound like a .335 would be more if a shaft for the masses....odd that Taylormade uses .350 tip in their drivers.

I swear I remember being told by a shaft manufacturer that it was easier and quicker to push .350 shafts into hosels in the manufacturing process.

FOR me i can really tell the difference a .350 shaft plays a lot stiffer 4 me, there are a lot of comments in this post, BUT i would say if fading is your thing use a .350 shaft. :thumbup:
