Just wanted to ask those of you who have played the RBZ 14.5 tour or 15 degree wood about length.  I am considering cutting my down from 43 1/2 to 43 inches.  Those of you who have done that, did it help you that much?  Thanks!

When I reshafted mine I went down to 42.75"...to me the 43.5 stock length just felt long if that makes any sense. It didn't feel right standing over it, and I missed in on the heel more than I do now. I'm 6'4" and that stock length was a tad long

Play the 14.5 Tour and cut it down 1".  Much, much easier to control and still significantly longer for me than my old R11

Ordered mine ½" short so couldn't answer about weight but I felt the standard length was a bit much. 70g shaft feels fine though.

42.5 in the 15* and 41.5 in the 5 wood.  5'10" tall, standard length 'arms'.  Hit them better at this length more often and much longer than I ever did at 43.5 in the 3 wood.  These are way to long for most standard height people that I have sold them too...many come back and have me take theirs down an .5 to a full inch all the time.  can always extend them later...cost of a grip to take them down..do a 1/2 inch at a time till you are killing them consistently..!!

good luck.

FYI...Diamana Kai'li 80x in 3 wood and Speeder 757 Stiff, tipped 3/4 inch in the 5 wood.
