If you are starting with an S flex and the recommended tip trimming for the 3 wood is 1.5". If you do not tip trim the shaft at all you will actually would end up a little more flexible then a standard R flex. A general rule of thumb with graphite shafts is 1" is equal to a change of flex. So if you start with the S flex and only tip trim 1" instead of 1.5" you will end up with a firm flex between R and S flex.
