Installing Oversize Grips

Jeff, is there a trick to installing the SuperStroke, TaylorMade Spider, and similar putter grips? I have a devil of a time with them. They seem to squeegee the adhesive off as they go on. I have been using .600 butts.

John,

Just make sure the grip tape goes all the way to the bottom of the grip and use lots of solvent. Other than that, there’s no special tricks!

Regards,

Jeff

Hogan Shafts

I have a set of Hogan Legend II graphite shafts to install. They have a 355 tip. They are Frequency Matched High Modulus regular flex. Do I install and butt trim only? Thanks.
James, New Port Richey, Florida, USA

James,

Yes, they are butt trim only.

Yonex Fairway Wood Reshaft

How do you reshaft a Yonex ADX 200 fairway wood?
Randy, Bullard, Texas, USA

Randy,

If memory serves me correctly, the head is titanium in some model years and graphite in others. If it’s titanium, it goes like a normal reshaft. If it’s graphite, the best way to ensure saving the head is to drill the shaft out. Heating the composite head will likely damage it.

Graphite Shaft Extraction

How do you extract an Aerotech Steel Fiber shaft? Can you use a torch on the hosel? Thanks.
Clay, Charlotte, North Carolina, USA

Clay,

Extract it as you would a graphite shaft; you will need a shaft puller in order to consistently save the shaft.

Titleist AP2 Iron Reshaft

I am trying to reshaft my Titleist AP2 irons and when I took the first couple of heads off there was a post in the hosel, almost like a weight. I remember the last time I reshafted the clubs the post being there. The post is bigger then the opening in the bottom of the shaft and it won’t go on, other then a few mm. They are tapered so I don’t tip trip, any ideas what I need to do to do this properly. Thanks.
Paul, Westbank, BC, Canada

Paul,

They are weights. You can use a drill to remove them or you can heat the hosels again and tap the open ends on the bench and the weights may come out.

Regards,

Jeff
