PostSubject: Tip of Shaft different with Iron hosel   Sun Dec 13, 2015 3:36 pm

Hi guys, i would like to ask if any one have done fitted a shaft with bigger tip (0.37) into a (0.35) iron hosel ?

From what i read online, basically there are 2 option:
1. To sand the tips of the shaft to fit the iron hosel (Cons: might damage the integrity of the shaft) 
2. To bore the iron head to fit the shaft which is also high risk involve

I  have consulted one fitting studio and their advise is to buy a shaft which fit to your iron hosel. No risk involve.  Laughing

Appreciate any kind advise.

A fitter can shave the inside of your iron hosel down with a drill
Not high risk if done by a qualified fitter with the right tools and skills.
I just did my hybrids shaft this way over the weekend. Can be done...

I'll won't do option (1) you mentioned in your post for the same reason.

I've done Option 2 before as my shaft is parallel tip.

Iron shafts come in 2 tip sizes - taper tip 0.355 and parallel tip 0.37.

Off the rack branded irons (your TM, Callaway, Titelist etc) are usually taper tipped.

One can use a taper tip on a parallel tip hosel with an adaptor but not the other way round. Shaving off

or bore the hosel will cause damage at the end of the day. Buy a taper tip shaft to fit is the only option.

A qualified fitter can bore the hosel if necessary
Parallel tips are stiffer at the tip
