Tip Trimming

The following tip trimming instructions are suggestions only.  We generally do not recommend tip trimming on a driver or 3 wood shaft based on the shaft composition and how tipping could affect performance. We recommend that you consult your custom fitter or club-builder for the best tip trimming suggestions based on your individual swing and desired results. To locate a Fujikura custom fitter near you, please use our Dealer Locator.

In general, tip trimming can be used to achieve a stiffer shaft profile, lower launch, and/or lower spin. Tip trimming 1“ is equivalent to one flex.  For example, if you wanted to stiffen your S flex to an X flex then you would tip trim 1”. If you prefer to play shaft in between S and X flex, you would tip trim 1/2”.
