Extending a golf shaft is a useful technique to have if you are buying used clubs, or if you are experimenting with different club lengths. If you know how to cut a golf shaft or how to extend it, you don't ever have to worry about purchasing the correct length of clubs on Ebay or other used club marketplaces.
If you play a 34" putter, and want to purchase a Scotty Cameron on Ebay, imagine how many more options and low prices you will have knowing that you can purchase any length of putter!
