Hi

I have Taylormade tip and want to callaway tip. I have seen them for 25.00. Does it need a tool to unscrew and add, looks like a torque screw or something. But about 10 mm deep to get to screw inside shaft, don’t know if glue is used, but sure it could be. And I will need to remove old tip too. Easier to take to local pro 😀 I might want to go back to other shaft later thanks

It would be extremely advisable to go to your local pro and tell him what you want done.

It is not difficult to pull the tip from a shaft and replace it with another provided you have the correct equipment.

Best leave it to the pro if you have no experience in this area.

You will need a graphite shaft puller to remove the old adaptor. Then clean up the tip section of the shaft and then fix a new adaptor with the appropriate glue. If you damage the original ferrule you will need to replace it and or if the linish marks on the shaft are outside the ferrule line then you'll have to use a longer ferrule to cover the marks on the shaft etc.
Make sure you purchase the correct diameter adaptor that fits your shaft because it's hard to put a .350 into a .335 bore !
Hope that helps and probably better if you give it to someone that knows how and what to do, rather than stuffing up the shaft.

And how much would this type of service be?   You know "pulling someone's shaft?

 

 

Serious now- simple procedure and going rate from a golf shop somewhere?

Not sure where you go to get your shaft pulled but I know the little shop afew doors up from me was closed down by the council last week.

Apparently for not having the right type of business registration papers to give any style of massage ?

Cost them $22K in fines, if that's the pricing that you're trying to ascertain Mads :)

 

Seriously though, to do the job is about $35 + adaptor + grip if required could run $100

What are your sandbelt based customers going to do while they wait for the re-grip now?
