    It is a great idea to learn this side of golf. I don't think that I know a single person that replaces their shaft. Most of my golfing pals head to the pro shop for this kind of thing. I wonder if there is a school or artisan that teaches this side of golf? I do know that if you do get to build a golf workshop you'll be the envy of every golfer in a tri-state area!

    Replacement shaft for razr fit driver voodoo rvs7

    I just bought Razr fit driver 9.5 with stock shaft.I read and found out for my self RIP shaft isn't the greatest.I went on EBay and bought the aldila VOODOO RVS7 with 3.9 torque for $69.00 and a $29.00 Sleeve.I put this driver together myself what a difference this shaft makes.I highly recommend anyone with razr fit driver head to at least change the shaft. Good golfing everyone
