I know it happens. I've watched a club making friend remove and replace lots of heads/shafts etc. I've had a head fly off. I'm just saying given the prices they are now charging for clubs (Ping Ansers $1500!) it shouldn't, but of course it will.

Surely that's not the case with Mizunos.  They're perfectly engineered and constructed by samurai blacksmiths trained for a lifetime in the art of grain-flow forging.  He must have bought a fake.

You should take the clubs to a golf store and have them clean off the old epoxy, rough up the shaft and inside of the hosel again, and then reapply the epoxy...It might take them 3 minutes to do it.

Exactly............it's a 1 minute fix.  If you send the club back to the manufacturer, you may not see it again for 6 weeks!   If you take it to where it was purchased, they'll fix it on the spot.

I guess if it wasn't me I might of thought the same way, hang on a sec,I think we had to stop playing for about 5 minutes to compose ourselves before we continued we were laughing so much.

Mizunos?  Samurai blacksmiths and Hollywood sound men.

There aren't any Samurai assembling U.S. market clubs in the Mizuno factory in Norcross Georgia.

I think the Australian market ones are assembled in China.
