PostSubject: Qn on identifiy OEM vs Aftermarket Shafts   Fri Aug 14, 2015 11:35 pm

Hi all,

Anyone knows how to differentiate between OEM and aftermarket shafts when purchasing off the 2nd hand market? I bought 2nd hand shafts and am currently using a MRC Fubuki Alpha Shaft but I have no idea whether it is OEM (made for shafts) or aftermarket. Any ideas?

Thanks in advance!

Just off my head but normally Made-for shafts will have the club brand on the shaft. Normally there should also be subtle differences in the graphics. 


Also, correct me if i am wrong but most after-market shafts come in 0.335" tip diameter.

Also the Font design is different TourAD is larger than aftermarket font... Once you know how to identify it, it's pretty easy...

I am trying to compare my Fubuki Alpha 50R vs the one offered with Titleist drivers. any graphics differences there?

How about go check out at the retail shop?

Some oem come with the made for , design with, develop for....
if you spot a logo or printing ....

Go to far east there are 2 shops that trade 2nd hand. they know best.

or go to the nice ball H brother. 

Advice to you , not sure DONT buy.
By the way there is another VERSION -- Deng xiao Pin..

good luck

Aftermarket shafts usually have gloss finished whereas stock shafts are in matt finished. Especially true for Japanese brands ... Not sure about US shaft like, Aldila though.
