Interesting. Do you know what Mark did to them to compensate for the extension, in terms of adjusting swing weight, drop in flex etc ? When I discussed this with a top end club fitter he suggested I do a complete reshaft to avoid compromising performance.
I had mine done at AGT in St. Andrew's by a top end club fitter. No mention of compromised performance performance; he seemed perfectly happy to load a tip weight into the hosel to maintain the swing weight. I'm not sure the flex changes by extending the butt end of a shaft. If it does it won't be a dramatic change.I "know" from reading posts from experienced clubfitters that shortening a shaft by lopping the butt end has no effect on flex; clipping the tip does though. I have no idea why that should be; wasn't covered in Higher Physics when I was at school ...
I'd forgotten about this thread, but since it's resurrected, I confess I'm not sure AGT did weight the clubs. What I do know is they extended them and added thicker grips (well regripped with more tape wraps at any rate).I've had a few of the heads work loose and had to be refitted, and noticed they've been tip weighted, but I don't know that AGT did that, or if they were like that when I got them from Keve who got them on ebay (and the trail goes cold at that point).Or it could be a Mizuno thing. Keve's also had a loose head on his 6I about the same time mine went, and his hosel/shaft were identical to mine - there's a plug in the shaft with a raised "bar" that doesn't fit the whole width of the plug, and fits into a slot in whatever's in the hosel; there's definitely something in there but it's difficult to see exactly what.
