    Default effect of driver length and shaft weight on distance

    assuming you hit it on the sweetspot everytime, how much difference in distance does a 43" driver make compared to 45"? If you switched from a 60g shaft to a 100g shaft, how much difference in distance would that make?

    All depends on you and your response to more length and weight. But in general with regards to the length, rule-of-thumb is 1 inch equals 1 mph

    So, I may lose only 5-6 yards, but with a real good chance to hit the ball a lot more consistently. Seems like a good move. Of course, I know the difference in swing weight, the effect on flex all need to be accounted for...
