Bumping an old thread in hopes of some guidance. I'm hoping @LBlack14
pick up on this for me.
I"ve got a set of X-22s (non-tour) that carry some sentimental value. The issue is, they have A-flex graphite shafts. I don't like the feel of graphite in my irons and I suspect the A-flex would be terrible for me anyway. I would love to reshaft the 5-9 irons in steel and put them in my bag.
I can get all the stuff I need to reshaft myself for around $215 shipped. This would include the following:
- 5x DG .370 shafts (I think this is the right size?)
- New ferrules, I like a taller ferrule than the stock nubbies on the X-22
- 5x NDMC grips
- 1 grip kit, full set 14 clubs
I already have a blowtorch and can either buy a vice or MacGyver something up with c-clamps.
Where I need guidance is pretty much everywhere, as I'm a total neophyte.
For starters, is it even worth doing this myself, taking into consideration that I'll need to buy some supplies I won't likely use again?
Am I missing anything from my shopping list?
Is .370 indeed the correct diameter for an X-22 reshaft? Additionally, are there any issues resifting a graphite model with steel? Hoping I don't need to get into any shimming headaches.
My understanding is that the x-22 is not a true bore-through and that the cap on the sole is just cosmetic, is this correct?
Are any of you club fitter guys willing to walk me through it all and show me the tricks so I get it right the first time?
I realize that I could probably buy a set of mint X-22s in any flex I wanted for around 250-300 bills, but like I said, sentimental value.
Sorry for the late reply. You may want to read this from Jeff Summit of Hireko Golf. Also this from Golfworks. I myself have never reshafted any Callaway irons.
Hope this helps.
