Hi Britt,

I’m clear on most steel shafts being designed around a 1″ bottom of bore to ground line measurement and the impact on tip trimming based on the BBGL measurement for a given head. Am I correct in remembering that graphite shafts are not designed with this 1″ BBGL measurement and thus this additional step should not be incorporated for graphite shafts?

Also, are there steel shaft brands that do not follow the 1″ BBGL design practice and if so, how can we identify that?
