The shaft can be cut for a 44.5" length but whether you can maintain a D3 swingweight depends on what clubhead you have and what grip you are using. You will likely need to add weight to the clubhead. If you shorten a driver from 45.5" to 44.5" you need to add 12 grams of weight to the clubhead to keep the swingweight the same. Also if you change the grip weight that will change the swingweight. A 4 gram change of grip weight is equal to 1 swingweight. If the grip gets 4 grams heavier the swingweight get 1 swingweight lighter. If the grip weight gets 4 grams lighter the swingweight gets 1 swingweight heavier.
