The recommended trimming instructions for the RIP Hybrid from Aldila are no tip trimming. In looking at the Aldila RIP Hybrid 85 shafts that we have in stock the tip is left unpainted so if it is not going into the Adams A3 Hybrid, which was listed as a .370" hosel bore either the shaft tip is slightly larger in diameter then it should be or the hosel bore size is slightly smaller then it should be. The Aldila RIP Hybrid 85 is designed with a 3" parallel tip length where the shaft would measure .370" up from the tip. Even if the shaft tip has been left unpainted it still needs to be lightly sanded for proper installation and this light sanding maybe enough to make it fit.
