lol it was 36.5 but i've been working on changing my swing some and as a result i'm much closer down to the ground now.
6i- 34.25 7i 33.75 8i 33.5 9i 33.25 PW-LW 33
1h and 3h 35.375

How are shortening the shafts? Are you cutting from the tip or the butt? If you're cutting off the butt, you must have to use a *feces*load of build-up tape for the grips.

Not as long as twoiron's but more loft and the perfect tool when extracting myself from nasty rough.

Agreed on TLT.  I'm making myself a set to TLT specs so I'll post a review in the coming weeks.

My 6 iron is 38.5" with TLT it will be a fraction longer buy my wedges will be 2" over standard.  So I won't have to hunch over so much.

3h- 190

My 13 year old hit my old 3i (which is about 2" too long for him) about that last night.  You're a wimp.   Wink

(Actually, he did just that.  I just about shat myself.  I don't have one in my bag now 'cuz I can barely hit a 3i.)

There's so many ways to read that statement.

No further comment from me....

LOL. i was hitting it 215 before i cut it down.   i'll give up the distance if i get more overall consistency and confidence.

thats what im not sure about.  i was hitting all these clubs choked down about 2" for 6-8 months now. i got use to the 'sw' from that position how much does it really change just by cutting them down and then regripping (im more worried about how long it will take me to get used to feeling like im actually holding the club again LOL)

Swingweight changes about three points per half-inch.

I'm wondering if the grip size is going to be an issue.  You're used to gripping down 2" on standard grips, which puts you on a smaller-diameter part of the grip.  After shortening the clubs and regripping, you're going to be holding the standard-diameter portion.
