Other than length and tip, is it possible?

I thinking of transfering my old cleveland launcher R shaft 65g into my R7 Superquad.

Ur swingweight may be off by a couple of points. You can counter it by adding extensions but the club is very likely to not play the same. Both clubheads weigh different in the 1st place so you have to check what swingweight are you after 1st.

Std 3 wd length is around 42.5" + 1/2". That puts it a good 2-2.5" shorter than a std Driver.

Unless the shaft is aftermarket and is worth some money, I dun see why you should do it.

I'm not an expert. I think Eric can chime in when he logs on.

why do you want to transfer the shaft to your 3 wood?

After transferring the shaft, your 3 wood may become too light

long story, my R7 Superquad has a stock SR flex shaft which i find too flexi.... just exploring all kinds of options to keep the head and not spend too much on the shaft. Smile

You are mistaken here. It is the shaft from the 3 wd to the driver and not what you thought.

It can be done.
I have done it.
But you must check your current driver cpm and your 3wood cpm
A good clubmaker can worked it out
