My most used 7i clubhead came loose. Where can get fixed, hopefully not to expensive. I suspect some of my irons may give way soon, so thinking if shd redo whole set. After all it's about 4 years old set

From the look, I think the ferrule is loose not the club head.

The club head will be 'flying' out if the head is loose.

For ferrule, you can use epoxy to glue it back or you can try contact cement :-

Epoxy can be used to glue the club head but think it is better to get a clubfitter to do so and it is not expensive.

Basically the club head is dislodged. Holding the shaft firm, I can rotate the clubhead.

I am not confident of just buying glue and DIY. Those pro shops who change grips are they capable of doing this job, or must go to clubfitters?

Most / All fitters would be able to do this. Some time back the ferrules on my hybrids came loose and I took them to Henry at FESC. It's probably a 10-20min job.

Damage i think less than $10

In that case, better to go to clubfitter to fit the head back.

Interesting to know that the head are coming off for a 4 years old set.

My old set is more than 6 years and do not have this problem.

Maybe you kept them in your car often for ad hoc call up for game. Cool

Can also goto Henry or Golf Simply @ FESC 2nd Level ... They are all friendly folks ... If you are their regular and/or know them well, they do not charge you for this  kinda service ... If u need to fix the whole set, they may charge you. I doubt it is expensive. Prolly around $10 max per club with new ferrule ... The ferrule may need to be replaced due to wear and tear ... I did that on one of the club at a shop @ FESC 2nd Level but the owner did not charge me because I was there to change the grips as well ...

Better get your whole set checked. Epoxy may have expired.
This is for safety and to avoid damaging the hosels cheers
