It's easy to do......cut off old shaft, drill out the hosel, tip trim new shaft to instructions, epoxy it in there, butt trim to length, grip it and rip it. :)

hmmm well my callawy being regular is a bit of a mistake i feel (i hit drives 260yrd+)

so im thinking of going extra stiff? ive got a gay ass fade at the moment (shaft related?) I am right in saying i should be going for a stiffer shaft am i not? ive got a video screenshot (albiet from behind) of my current shaft on impact....its a bit wobbly ;)

Unless you are swinging 120mph, stay away from XS.

If you get the chance, seek out a golf shop in your area that has a launch monitor. Get your swing analyzed get the right shaft for your swing. Really....it's the right thing to do.

i would do (more for the speed of your swing measured:D) but there arent any :(

my 5 wood (taylor made) is an S-90 plus, which is about as stiff as they do isnt it?!

i must have been having a blonde day when buying my BB :( Im not talking suicide stiff here! just a little stiffer than the callaway stiff ;)

A wet noodle is stiffer than the stock Callaway.

Without seeing the TM shaft my guess is that the 90 refers to the weight of the shaft...90 grams...heavy by todays standards, so I could be wrong about that.

There must be something near you......I know you are in the UK after all, but still...;)

Google, pro shops or golf shops or launch monitor and then add a plus sign and the name of your county, state, whatever.....the plus sign narrows the search and you may be suprised.
