Just wondering what will happen if we lengthen the Driver's shaft to the maximum allowable 48". Will it lead to longer drives. Will it be at the expense of accuracy. I am tempted to extend my old Titleist 905R to 48".Very Happy

Sister, my game very lousy nowadays. Need the length to try 2 on on Par 5s. Losing to many young men.

bro TDO, u still use the 905?
Extending from 45 to 48 is 3 inches of attachment , not advisable, the swing weight and total dead weight is going to be out of proportion that U dont survive 18 holes ( 14 drive only).
the extended part will come loose if you are strong,
your kaki will kick u out of their car, because it is harder to fit your bag in

so much said, those playing wish U have extended and can make u buy lunch all time

905 > gor tong liao.
spend 249 get a RBZ stage 2 would help to solve your problem
think hard and act fast

Ha! Ha!. Thanks for valuable feedback. What to do? Budget problem so have to stick with old clubs. Even my irons are more than 10 years old.Sad 


Apparently, this 905R is still serving me well. I bought from one of the brothers here some time last year. I hit on average about 70% of fairways with this driver.Very Happy

My kakis don't have RBZ driver. I tried R11 though from one of my kakis. Difference in distance is not much compared with my 905R. Gained about 5-10 yards only. So not worth investing in a supposedly better driver just to gain 5 - 10 yards.

Sorry, but i just can't help to laugh when i read this paragraph ..

Note: The wrist-to-floor measurement is used as the initial guideline for determining club
lengths for the golfer that will match well with their height and arm length for comfort.
To make the measurement correctly, wear flat-sole shoes only, stand comfortably erect,
shoulders perfectly level, arms hanging relaxed at the sides. The measurement is made from
the major wrist crease on the dominant hand to the floor in inches plus any fraction.
