    Driver shaft tipping for a three wood

    I splintered the tip of an older driver shaft and I was wondering if I would be able to tip trim the shaft for a three wood.

    I know it's possible but any guidelines around how much stiffer it will make the shaft?

    It's an Adila Vs Proto 70-X if that helps. I play an X flex in my driver but I'm worried that tipping it too much will make it too stiff/unplayable.

    Likely for a 3 wood Aldila recommends 1/2" tipping so that it plays the same with the heavier head. if your trim is an inch then it would play stiffer I think by 1/2 flex
