Has anyone out there ever put a fairway wood shaft into a hybrid club? If so, how did it work out? High launch, low launch or what? Thanks.
Nearly all wood shafts are .335 tip diameter. Nearly all hybrids are .370 tip diameter. Even if you shimmed it to get it to fit, it is highly inadvisable to do this and it’s dangerous. A hybrid head is much heavier than a fairway wood head so it requires a shaft specially designed for it.
I’ve put lots a shafts into golf clubs including a Wishon .335 hybrid shaft into a ping g25 3h. So I’m not worried about the danger or the weight. I was interested in knowing how the club would play, i.e. ball flight, spin rate, playability, etc.
One of the first hybrids I made was a 19* and I was having trouble getting it high enough into the air. So I used a fairway wood shaft, and tipped it according to the weight of a fairway wood head of similar weight. Worked like a charm. If you use the Golfworks Brass Adaptor shims (https://www.golfworks.com/the-golfworks-brass-adaptor-shims/p/SHIM/), you shouldn’t have any problems.
