Thank you Tom for the reply. I’ve always been impressed you come on here and answer seemingly ANY question from ANYONE. You won’t find that anywhere else.
Wishing you and yours a Happy Holidays.

Tom Wishon

KYLE Many thanks for your appreciation ! Yes, I do and always have answered any questions from anyone who wants to know more about any aspect of golf club performance or design. It goes way back to when I was just starting and I was ravenous to know everything I could. back then I used to try calling all the golf companies and shaft companies trying to get someone who knew this stuff who could answer my questions. And every time I was blown off or given some lame excuse that what I was asking was “proprietary information they could… Read more »

I’ve yet to try these wedge shafts, but offering a knock down and high option is interesting.
I’ve found the S2S stepless perform great in wedges for me. No reason to switch except that I’m curious.
As far as the putter shafts, is there really any characteristic other than weight that matters?

Tom Wishon

KYLE You’ll find me as one who believes that if a golfer has found an iron shaft they like, then there is no reason to use any other shaft in the wedges. When I create products for my design line, I try very hard to combine ideas I have on my own with the occasional request from our clubmaker customers for what they want to see as well. In the case of the wedge shafts, this was a request from quite a number of clubmakers. But in doing these shaft designs, I was very, very skeptical of the way all… Read more »

Hi Tom really appreciate your insight on golf equipment and patience to respond to all the various topics. My question is on your Wedge Shafts I’m looking to buy a High Flight Shaft 605-WG-HF are there flex options ? I assume the shaft part number will be the only flex thanks for your time.

Tom Wishon

ROB Many thanks for your interest for sure. It comes from YEARS AGO when I used to try to call or write to industry people asking questions and NEVER or rarely got an answer. It used to make me so mad I made a promise that if I ever got to the point that I really knew this stuff I would never shut someone down who wanted answers to questions. 40 some years later here I am still answering !! HA ! OK, wedge shafts. The High Flight and Knock Down are their own flexes to try to elicit a… Read more »

Is the double bend putter shaft used for a 90 degree bore in order to get the 72 degree shaft angle? And also what is the inside diameter of the tips of the putter shafts?

Tom Wishon

DAVID it is possible to find a single bend shaft that will go into a 90* bore and end up giving you a more “normal” lie angle such as 72*. In a double bend putter shaft, one bend is for the lie, while the other one creates a specific amount of offset. So a single bend shaft is made with only the one bend that controls the lie and does not have any bend for offset. Hence with any single bend shaft, the face will sit out there a little in front of the shaft and grip. There is no… Read more »

what is the correct size for a wilson 8813 putter; i cut one down several years ago for my son when he was under 5′, now want to replace so he can use it now he is 6′

Tom Wishon

JERRY That would be a 0.382″ flared tip putter shaft. Not many of them around anymore because there are so few putters made with a tapered over the hosel construction to accept such a shaft. But I dug around and found this source – http://www.pgatoursuperstore.com/true-temper-shaft/100315000674.jsp opr here – https://www.golfworks.com/true-temper-straight-taper-putter-shaft/p/TT0001P/ (on this Golf Works listing, see Item #TT0004P). I do not know if either of these have the indented “flutes” that were on the original 8802/8813 shaft but if not, no biggie as the flutes were just decoration on the shaft anyway and of no performance function.

If you have a standard 35-inch putter grip, what is the raw shaft length? Just an estimate. Thank you.

Tom Wishon

CLIFF Sorry but it’s tough to know what you are asking so I will take a guess. When you say “standard 35″ putter grip”, there are no grips at 35″ long that I know of so we have no idea what you mean there. If you are asking about putter shaft length, most shaft companies that make putter shafts make them with a raw uncut shipped length of either 35 or 36″ length. Uncut is the meaning of Raw Length when it comes to a shaft. If you are asking about what is the actual cut shaft length with the… Read more »

Hi Tom
I noticed on the spec sheet that the knockdown wedge shaft is a lot lighter than the high spin one. Is this correct?

Tom Wishon

MIKE: First of all, please accept my apology for the long delay in responding to your question and post, The auto notification feature of the blog that is supposed to tell me/us that posts are waiting for response was “broken” or messed up such that none of us knew that posts were here and waiting. VERY sorry for the Oops on that. In the end when the two wedge shafts are installed and cut to the golfer’s desired playing length, they end up the same weight. If you look at the chart closely, you see that the Knock Down shaft… Read more »
