I may have screwed up. I ordered a Epic 3W with a UST ES 450 Recoil shaft with a light flex last week. Today I was messing around with the build and buy option and I noticed that there was a UST ES 450 Recoil Fairway shaft option. It was too late to call Callaway today to ask what is the difference in the two shafts. As far as I know my order is still in progress. I went to the UST web site and they only listed the ES Recoil 450 and not a ES Recoil 450 Fairway. Does anyone know the difference ? .
Nate thought they were the same so I guess I am good to go. You got to love the Callaway Community for quick answers. It's bad when you screw up a shot on the course but ordering the wrong shaft could be disastrous.
I dunno, If the 450 and a 450 FW is available I would think the FW model is a slightly heavier version of the 450 driver model.
The positive side of the is that if you are in need of the light flex. You will probably like it better
@jimm9fa7, I think what @PC98 said makes sense. There are two ES 450 Recoil shafts made by UST, one for irons and one for woods. The one for woods that I ordered is the F2 or light. It is 53 gram shaft. The ES 450 shaft made for woods can be used for the driver, 3,5 and 7 woods, being tipped different and of course the lengths. I don't think the 450 iron shaft even comes in a F2 or light flex. The butt diameter is smaller than the wood version too.
I called Callaway and talked to Simon. Nate and PC98 or absolutely correct about the 450 shaft for woods. I am getting the the F2 and should be getting a shipping notice today or tomorrow. I also went back to the UST web site and the ES450 for irons only is made in 40 inch length's and is a ladies flex. Funny how an idle mind (when I;m not playing golf) can cause anxiety.
