No, you didn't miss it, you just added a relevant point to a post made by someone who obviously hadn't done it before.
After some thought, I think because the ferrule will have to be replaced and that unlike irons, there is a big advantage to using the proper collared ferrule, I am just goingbto do it right and order the ZOEM ferrule from Cobra. A rep from Cobra must have seen the thread and said he could provide one, though it can't be sent directly to Japan. I'd like to play with the new shaft soon, but by going this route, I will have two shafts.
Everyone has been great, thanks for the info.
