Hi all,

has anyone tried to put 3 iron shaft (graphite) on a hybrid? 

Any suggestion?

Thanks.

A 3 iron shaft (graphite) is definitely too light on the hybrid head ...

so if the shaft is heavy enough, would it be a problem?

I am not an expert but I would build a hybrid shaft closer in flex to my irons than my woods. Reason is hybrid is played like an iron and for better accuracy (lower dispersion). For weight, lets say, if your driver is 60-65g, your woods is 70-75g ... Your hybrid should be 80-85g ideally ...

You may wanna consult a club fitting professional like DGman from BFG, etc. for professional advice. Wink

There's  no  issue  using  long  iron  shaft  for  hybrid  if  the hosel size  fits. I  used  to  use  the  same MCI80  shaft  for my irons & miura hybrid.

Now I  use V90 long iron shafts for my Tourstage UT hybrid to complement  my  irons in Modus 3.

Light graphite hybrid shafts are  also available if weight is  your  concern.   First  check  the  hosel  size  of  your hybrid,  then  you  can  decide  which  shaft  to  select.

By  the  way,  you  need to  also  check  if  the  length  of long iron  shaft  is  sufficient  for  your  intended hybrid.

It is "doable"
Iron shaft can fit into your hybrid club.

But first you must determine the swing weight of your 4 iron. If you can hit your 4 iron, your 3 hybrid, swing weight should be almost similar to your 4 iron sw ( swing weight )

Like is it "D 1 , D2, or D3?"

Secndly check the CPM
http://www.clubmaker-online.com/hpm.choose.html

Your 5fw and your hybrid should almost be identical.
Like my 3 and 5 Fw are 265cpm and my hybrids are between 250 -255.

When you have these info, a good clubmaker can assembled one for you.

I have a Golf buddy who did this.
He used his 3 iron shaft and put a Mizuno hybrid which worked wonders for him.
His iron shaft were NS Pro 90 r flex.

The heavier your shaft the less distance.
I have seen lighter shaft worked wonders for "short distance hitter>"

Honma Golf uses this theory that's why short hitters can gain extra advantage.

Hyrbid shaft in my humble opinion should be either 65 to 75 grams.
If your golf hybrid becomes "too soft/ whippy on the tip" just add extra "tape"

I am talking based on experienced.
