Apologies if this has been asked before

I would like to experiment with a shorter driver & 3 wood lengths. I understand about swingweight and bringing it to where I like it at (D3, I like heavier feeling clubs) but this question involves the shaft.

according to Wishons article:(http://www.rickscustomfitgolf.com/images/12mythsBook.pdf) I should try a 43.75” driver, floor to wrist is 43.5 and I’m a 1/4” over standard. I know what Ralph says about floor to wrist measurements and how they are just a starting point. Still need to see how solidly you hit the ball, etc. but this is where I would like to start at.

Will butt cutting the shaft make it play stiffer then the listed flex? And by how much? I think it’s an inch plays 1 flex stiffer, or is that only for tip cutting?

Also, what 3 wood length should I play IF the 43.75 driver length works well for me? 1.5” shorter? I’m currently playing the KE4 TC with the Pro Launch Blue in it.

Lastly, just as an FYI, instead of cutting at first I’m going to measure and put tape on the grip And start putting my hands there but if it works for me I will be cutting to length.
