not unless you bore the hosel ID to .370, but if the other way round, you can use a shim.

aluminum shim is cut from soft drinks can and its not soft enough to fit over the shaft and act as a thickened shaft.

we recommend specialised copper shim thats designed for golf clubs, whenever possible. plus some shafting beads to ensure proper fitting for the .355 shaft in the .370 head

love to...and there are lots of trees behind the shop..just need to get over to the malaysian side, chop down a few trees and risk getting knocked down by the 25 mph train.

then we have to drill a few holes on the hosels to knock in those lovely dowels and make sure its termites treated before we knock them in..haha

V,

to avoid any "mishap", its ideal to have both the club head & shaft of the same specs. To fit a .370 shaft into a .355 hosel you will need to locate a skilled & qualified club fitter for this job. Next, pray hard that the hosels do not get weakened in the process......

Cheers,

Beer
