What is the impact of lengthening driver shaft from 45" to 46"?

Other than additional weight at the handle tip, Will the addition affects the end swing results?

It'll affect the overall swing weight.

Swingspeed goes up ... However, this does not neccessarily translate to more distance , as smashfactor may go down

After reading about cutting the length and increasing the loft in this forum.
I experiment it with a 11.5* driver and 44.5 inch shaft.
My fairway accuracy went up to almost 100%!
Not much lost in distance.

All things being equal, i.e. swing and golfer, then I suspect that you'll gain distance at the expense of accuracy.

there are fewer people who will benefit from increasing length than there are in reducing length.

with accuracy comes distance, with inaccuracy comes doubt.

so you go figure that out.

I agree. Also...

based on my 2 years of studying physics.....lengthening of shaft...is suppose to give rise to distance

based on my 7 years of studing my golf ......when I choke down, I get cleaner hit....when I choke up, I choke literally...

based on common sense which I had accumulated for the past 10 years.....I choke down

Seebayho,

the 11.5 degree might have helped too.

after going to Big Fish Golf a few days ago, Eric told me, I would be surprised how many pros play with c6-c8 swing weight. and...

i am with Duval on this. i choke down on driver 1 inch and irons too after watching Anthony Kim, lo and behold, i hit further, and straighter. Go figure.

LOL! Duval_S' new title should be SBTCSS... si beh tok kok seeng soong.

Anyway, back to topic. I tend to choke down a little as well. I get better control over the club and as DGman mentioned, a better shot which (oddly enough) translates to better distance too Smile
