Watch "ABS my Stealth" on YouTube

Wow. Talk about zero offset in those irons. :grin:

Very cool @NRG!

I have done some tinkering as of late with modern meets ABS (on my driver) - going down a similar path that you have. Currently, using a 45" SIM, with 10x Ventus Black (+/- 105g - I should have saved the money and gone steel) - heaviest shaft I could find.

I’ve added 30g butt-weight and 20g head (back weight) - I may have adjusted the slider weight from stock as well (hard to keep track). Anyway, over 400g (14.1 ounces) now, with a D-5 swingweight.

This thing is a tank but only relative to what “normal/modern” feels like. It’s been fun to hit (because you have to “hit” it ;)). I’d like to see how shaft flex looks - I need to take some video. Also, it still feels long, so may cut to 44.5/44".


I just set up an account with Golfsmith, (called something different now) for my workshop supplies.

Looking through the catalogue and pricelist, it looks like they don’t do a steel shaft with a .335 tip anymore. :astonished:

Very had to find anymore. Value Golf sells one and I recently purchased a few of these. You have to tip them a bit to get the right stiffness because it’s a R/S combo shaft, but other than that they work okay. They are very affordable, but don’t know if they ship to the UK.
They’re also heavy, the raw weights of the 3 I ordered were 137-139 grams before trimming (listed at 135 on the website but they run heavier than that).

The other reasonable option is to pull shafts from old clubs.

I guess it’s logical. Who is going to be messing around with .335 steel shafts anymore??

All Driver & 3 wood shafts are graphite now, hybrids are .350 tips (I think).

I have a few in stock, but they will run out soon enough.

This is on the Stealth head, it turned out to be 45"…love the hit! No distance, but I only hit 3 balls because i didnt miss it. Go figure. Next up, original SIM head

Love your commitment to improving the Stealth to ABS standards. Interesting that the steel shaft reduces distance on you initial tests. Good luck :+1:
