    As a guideline I believe 1/2" reduction in length usually equates to a reduction of 3 swingweight points.

    1/2 inch = 3 swing weight points you will approximately C9.5- I don't think you will feel a difference- you can gain back 1 point if you can reduce your grip weight by 9 grams.

    Hi Stefan, Shortening your shaft by 1/4" will reduce the swingweight approximately 1-1.5 swingweights depending on the balance of the shaft cut. We have found in our testing that not too many players can tell the difference in 1 swingweight.  Grips work the same way - approximately 4-5 grams of grip weight will also change a swingweight 1 swingweight depending on the balance of weight along that grip (length of grip and where the weight of that grip is balanced)

    Stefan, also instead of reducing the grip weight 4 - 5 grams you could if you want add 2 grams to the head weight to increase the swing weight 1 point. Also the shorter shaft will reduce the effective playing lie by 1/2 degree so if that becomes an issue (not likely) I would suggest you have your club (s) bent up 1 degree
