Been using 70g shafts since starting golf.
Ss 95-100. I'm happy with my driving. But I can't figure out damn 3wood shafts.(whether 70g or 80g is good for me) I use addi 85g for hybrid and it's a beauty.

Anyone using 70g shafts for both driver/ fwy? If so are they matching set?

I use Diamana S+ 70 stiff flex in my driver, and both fairway woods. Works pretty good for me.

I used 70 and 70 for awhile, I since switched to a heavier 3w shaft and a way heavier hybrid shaft and while it did take me a little bit to get comfortable with the new weight and balance I am much more accurate with the heavier shafts.

that's what I was thinking too. I gained accuracy when I moved from 60g to 70g driver shafts. what's your hybrid weight?

Until today (new shaft finally delivered) I have been using a 75g HZRDUS Black in my driver while using a 78g Aldila Silver in my 3w and an 86g Aldila Tour Blue in my 3H. I'm stepping down to a 65g shaft for my driver as the 75g shaft was just a bit much for me (also had to do with how stout the shaft was). I didn't have any issues with my driver and 3 wood shafts weighing basically the same, though. My opinion is use what your comfortable with (and what gives you the best overall consistency and #'s). Hopefully you have access to try some different weight shafts out.

I put steel shafts in my fairway woods about a year ago.
My advice is to get a used 3 wood with one in it and try it. I think that may cure your accuracy problem, it did mine.

Hope this helps.

I used to use 85/85 for driver/fw.  It was to make my driver heavier for control.  I now go 75/85.  Anything lighter than 80g in a fw is too light for me.  I lose a lot of feel with it like that.  But, John Rahm, Rickie Fowler, and a ton of other pros use 70-75g shafts in their drivers and fws so it's not strange by any stretch.

At one time the thinking was fairway wood graphite shafts should be 10 to 15 grams heavier then the driver shaft.

Glad you started this discussion.

My current 3 wood shaft is 10 grams heavier than my driver shaft. But I'm actually switching back to a 75/75 combination because I got a really good deal on the atmos 7. So we shall see!

Would love to hear more input from others.

Tried 80g 3w at used section. It felt not heavy at all. Strangely, swinging 70g 3w felt so much lighter.

Ordering 80g shaft now. lol
