Mine 45" as well...

I was thinking if I'm just 1 meter tall, I doubt my drive will be longer or more consistent with a 46" than to a 40" driver... I feel that there should be a max length to height ratio.

Having said that, we r talking abt 43.5"-47.5" on an average asian height in this topic.

What do u guys think?

BaBa watson use 44inc...what u think?

Interesting articles to read By courtesy of golfspy :

http://www.mygolfspy.com/mgs-labs-is-longer-really-longer/

They did a test on 2 clubs with 2 inch different in length.
Results: shorter club is only 1.4 yards shorter but accuracy much improved..

To each his own opinion as science had proven it. But bear in mind that cutting too short will drastically affect your swingweight . Also, it may affect the kick point a bit..

Bro.. Your 7 iron hits 240m ?? Laughing

Btw, do you grip down on your driver? or you play it to the butt of the shaft..

why do u say i hit 240m on my 7i? What on earth gave you that idea?

I grip down slightly on the driver... i find it hard to control if u grip all the way to the end.

Just kidding bro. Only wondering which club is longer than your driver and why... For me I can't hit my irons..

And for my driver it was cut to 46" but I always tend to grip lower...

Bro Chien, I have a 44in R9 Max Driver with a shaft that should suit you if you want to try out what a shorter driver feels like ...
