TaylorMade R11 3 Wood Reshaft

I’m reshafting a TaylorMade R11 3 wood. Can the old shaft tip be drilled out of the adapter and the adapter reused? Thanks.

Ryan,

If you step drill it and be very careful, it can be done.

Regards,

Jeff

MacGregor Iron Reshaft

I have a set of MacGregor Tommy Armour Silver Scot Tourney 985s. Thinking of using True Temper Dynamic Gold R300 as I have not done this before, I see the heads are pinned. Do I also heat to remove epoxy? Can you tell me what size tip I will need?
Roy, Corning, California, USA

Roy,

They are .355″ taper. Heating will remove both pins and shafts.

Bending Mizuno Irons

Hi, I would like to know if a clubmaker can change the lie of my Mixuno JPX 800 hybrids 2° flat. Thanks a lot for your answer. Best regards.

Bertrand,

The JPX will be difficult to bend; getting two degrees might be tough.

Cleveland Wedge Reshaft

Jeff, I have a set of Cleveland 588 wedges with the shafts growing old and with a few spots of rust. I would like to have it reshafted. Before I do it I will need to buy some shafts. What is the tip size and type fits the Clevelands? If my irons are D3 swingweight, what swing weight should I use for the P, S and the L wedge?
Dennis, Petaling, Selangor, Malaysia

Dennis,

They are taper tip .355″. I would not worry too much about the swingweights as the heads are heavier than the rest of the et. expect anywhere from D5 up to over E for swingweghts for these wedges – which is typical.

Jeff

Reshafting Procedure

I have 10 TaylorMade Rocketballz RBZ graphite shafts pulled from #4 Rescue hybrids. I want to put them into 3-AW Acer XDS hybrid heads i bought from Hireko Golf. I can’t find tip trim info on these shafts. Help!
Jon, Hibbing, Minnesota, USA

Jon,

We have to make some key assumptions first. Are the shaft tip sizes and bore sizes the same? Are the raw lengths of the shafts long enough to get the finished length you want? That being said, here is what I would do. First you need to measure the pararell tip sections of the shafts. If there is enough tip section, here’s what to do. The #3 and #4 get no tipping. The #5 gets 1/2″ tipping, the #6 gets 1″ and so on. Then cut to length from the butt end. If there is not enough tip section to do this, go in 1/4″ increments. Good luck.

Regards,

Jeff
