Following on from my other shaft post....

Can you fit a RH shaft & adapter in a LH head?

Cobra F6+ if it makes a difference..

Thanks 🙂

Possibly, with lofts reversed. My friend had an R1 with a LH adapter, he just had to go the opposite direction of what the adapter said.

Just as @russtopherb said the lofts will be reversed. But also the draw setting will be a fade setting. I've used it in my LH head before to give a more fade bias driver.

Thanks chaps. I've been offered a RH shaft in X-stiff to try but it's a righty, great that I can give it a whirl.

Other option is you can take the shafts into a shop and ask them to swap over adaptors if you really wanted to as well.

This ^. . I ordered a LH adapter from Golfworks and took the adapter and shaft to GG and they installed it. @DStarAs to your shaft question  - it doesn't matter.

Yup its a trick used by companies too on true custom fits. Most driver sleeves make the club upright but opposite like this will make it flatter.

Seems that everyone here agrees that you could demo a RH shaft in your LH driver and it will work, just have the setting reversed. Needless to say the neutral setting would NOT change. So go give a few shafts a try and see what works best for YOU, as that is what really matters.

Hadn't ever thought about the draw/fade difference. I don't often change the setting cause I don't want a draw biased driver, but this has peaked my interest and I just happen to be playing a RH adapter in my LH club. 🤯

Yes, I am LH and used a RH adapter in my Cobra and took it to the local shop and the measured it and it is just the opposite side of the circle works. 

So basically it's opposite day? +1 is -1. Draw is fade. Bogeys are really birdies.

Interesting, I knew the lofts were mirrored but thought the draw would also be mirrored and would still be a draw setting.

Thanks for the clarification.

I've got the shaft on the way so will have an hour on the GC2 at the club and try to figure out what works best 👍

I'm so far gone from the specs game. Still playing clubs fitted back in 1998. This is crazy to me, but makes sense

When my wife asked if I wanted to leave Maine and move to where she grew up, I couldn't say no to Pinehurst, NC. I honestly don't spend much money on golf equipment, but I'm constantly reading reviews in case I ever get ready to buy

I swing left handed and have been the State of Maine Left Hander's champion since 1997, the last year they held the tournament. I'm currently a 6.3 handicap. Trying to get lower, but my gut gets in the way.

Not sure if the lofts actually change; but you are just opening and closing the face of the driver. 

Actually it is the opposite. The loft (face angle) in relation to the shaft can be changed however the sole won't be quite flat on the ground when the shaft is absolutely straight (not hands forward nor back at address). However, the face angle (draw/fade) cannot be changed. It is the relationship of the sole to the face angle when the sole is flat on the ground. The lie angle can be changed. In other words, when the shaft is straight (hands not forward nor back at address) it will be more vertical (more upright) when the head is in the 'draw' setting or less vertical (flatter) than neutral when in the fade setting. A more upright setting will promote a draw and vice versa, but you are not really changing the draw/fade-open/closed face angle.

By the way, if your driver and/or fairways have changable weights in the heel/toe or front/back you can adjust how fast thye face will close near impact. Weight more towards the toe or more towards the face will keep the face open longer to prevent hooks. Weight more towards the heel or more towards the back of the head will close the face faster to prevent slices.

All clubs overlength - 47 inch driver, 45 inch 3wood, 44 inch 5 wood, 41 inch 3 hybrid, 39.5 inch 5 iron with other irons in line with that. All clubs graphite shafted and X-flex except flex of putter.

That is for a draw/fade setting on the adapter.  I believe the discussion was about loft changes.   When changing the loft on an adjustable adapter,  you are also effectively opening/closing the face.   From what I have read, the whole concept works as long as you sole the driver, but if you never sole the driver, you may not be making a change.
