C16 Driver

Stephen M

Have an opportunity to buy Titleist C16 driver. Hit it it on driving range. Forgiving. Feels great. Shaft length is standard 45.5. I usually customize my driver length to 44.75. Better control. More fairways. Current owner of driver thinks shaft length cannot be shortened in C16 driver without losing benefits. Is this true?

    No, you can shorten the shaft if you feel it is needed. You are looking at a 0.75" length change and that could/probably will change the swingweight slightly.

    Try hitting it gripped down on the current shaft and see how it feels.

    I bought a C16 driver second hand and like you I usually have the shaft shorter than standard. Had my local pro cut an inch off the shaft for me and I can't see any downside to this ... only positives for my game! And no issue of shortening the C16 shaft.

    I have used a couple different length shafts in my C-16----worked fine. Still searching for the perfect one.
