Here is my situation. I currently have a 915 F 18 5 wood that has on the stock (what it came with) Diamana D+ 80 gram stiff shaft. I am looking to get a little more launch out of it, so I am wanting to replace it with an extra Diamana S+ 70 gram shaft that I have out of a 3 wood. While there is only 1/2 difference in the length, I noticed something the other day.
While I would normally just remove the grip, and butt trim the shaft 1/2 inch, when I put the two 5 wood (with the D+) against my 3 wood (with its own S+) I see that the graphics on both completely line up, and that the 3 wood appears to have a longer tip section.
Hope I am making sense here, but this struck me for a minute and I am not 100% sure if I can just do a 1/2 trim now. Were the graphics done after the fact just to be visually consistent sitting on the rack? Or were these trimmed a specific way?
Again it has me doing a double take. Other option is just to play the 5 wood 1/2 longer (no big deal) but wanting to make that extra shaft the same as a standard 5 wood.
