I noticed I play better with wood shafts that have a smaller diameter (measured at a constant point on the shaft, ie 18” down from the butt end). For example, Aldila NV and Fuji Ventus is smaller diameter in than Kuro Kage Black 2nd Gen. I know this is not a common spec that’s used for fitting but  What does a smaller outside diameter do to the performance?  I suspect it softens the flex, so maybe that’s the only benefit I’m experiencing.  Please educate me.  And if there is something real to this, how would I find those specs for shafts golfworks sells?
