Can I use the standard length shaft for my 17* Hybrid for a 21* Hybrid? I have both clubs but would like to use the shaft on my 17*h with the 21* head without cutting the shaft.
Can that work?
Hi Jay, You can use any hybrid shaft in any head - the difference in your 17 depends on the shaft, but in general, it is 1" longer and your 17° was not tipped and the 21 was probably tipped 1".

What do you mean by tipped?
When we receive a shaft from the OEM vendors, it comes at a raw length. We will cut the tip end (tip it) for flex and different lofts and cut the butt end to length. On a 17° hybrid, we don't cut the tip end and the final length is 41", on the 21° hybrid, we will cut the tip end 1" (depending on shaft) and the final length is 40". That is our standard installation.
Like they say, it is do-able. The 17* shaft will add ~6 swingweight points and may soften the effective flex slightly. The other compensation is flattening the lie angle for the longer shaft (if you use A1 on the 21* shaft you would use B1 for the 17* shaft).
I'm doing the opposite with my 19* fairway. I butt cut the shaft to 41" and put on a Winn Lite Dri Tac grip to bring the swingweight back up. I have the setting on A3 so it almost swings like a 17H but much easier to hit.
Same thing with my 21H. It is only 1/2" longer than my 27H and the lie angle is .25* flatter. Hits perfect.
