I have a Titleist 913D3 with a Fujikura Motore Speeder VC7.2 Tour Spec. I ordered this driver at a 44.75" length and a D4 swingweight. I wanted to shorten my driver by 1/2 an inch from the butt of the shaft. I have heard people say that every 1/2 an inch is about 2 or 3 swingweight points and that 1 swingweight point is 2 grams. I have an 11 gram blue weight on the driver head. So if I did cut down my driver length by 1/2 an inch, I wouldn't be able to return to at least a D3 swingweight without lead tape? I know that titleist's heaviest weight for the driver head is a 14g black dot weight, which will only bring back 1.5 points on swingweight. Also, will cutting down only 1/2" in length affect the flex? I've heard that 1/2" from the butt of the shaft shouldn't do any effect on shaft flex, but just curious to make sure. Thanks.

Shortening your driver to 44.25" with the 14g bezel weight will result in a swing weight of D3. Also, those shafts have enough butt section to accommodate these type of length changes without effecting the flex.
