Re-shafting Irons Question


Recommended Posts

I have a set of TM 2017 M2 irons (4-AW) with regular steel shafts. Age and arthritis are beginning to take their toll on my body. My pro suggested I go to graphite shafts. I've looked for a set like mine with graphite and found a couple. However, I'm wondering if it might not be cheaper to re-shaft my set. I guess I could trade my set and put the proceeds towards the purchase of the new set. Anyway, I'm just looking for advice on what to consider. Most of the posters here usually have good insights. Thanks for letting me know your thoughts.

I think that's a loaded question.

Graphite shafts for irons start around $15/ea. and go up quickly from there. So assuming you're going to shaft them yourself and you get something in the $25/ea. range, then you're looking at $225 +shipping (9 clubs x $25) plus a few dollars for the epoxy. And don't forget you'd have to move the grips from the old shafts to the new ones. Unless you're getting new grips too, then you can add about $50-100 onto the total depending on what grips you get. 

I checked on 2nd Swing and they're selling a 6 club set of M2's around $320.

So unless you're really attached to your current setup, I'd sell them and look for a used set of graphite irons.

Just my $.02

Good luck and let us know what you decide!

Even if you do the work yourself; by the time you factor in the cost of the new shafts, and possibly grips, the tariff could be a couple hundred bucks...and that is predicated on buying the cheapest shafts available.  If you are not looking to spend any more than that; buying another set is probably going to be the least expensive option.

Good points from both of you. I don't do my own work so I'm probably looking at even higher costs. Dick's will buy my set for $180 and they have a graphite set like mine online for $700 so that seems like the way to go. Plus I know I'm getting shafts designed for this particular set of irons. Thanks for your input.

    • This drill will help more for that. Try and keep the right elbow from bending more than 90 degrees too.
    • The numbers are ticking up for daily vaxxing, from what I read.  So that’s some good news.   My wife and I can’t wait for the under 12 to be approved.   It drives us crazy that non-vaxxed adults are doing whatever they want with their kids while we mostly keep ours home and limit contact with people until it’s safer. My wife said there was a long line at Walgreens yesterday for people getting the vaccine.   Fingers crossed.   
    • Thanks! I’ll try to drill out I like the idea of feeling pressure on your thumb. I’ve read the article multiple times. I was doing the armpit drill in attempt to stop getting my right arm behind my shirt seam. 
    • Anyone else played here?   I’ve wanted to come here since the late 90s, and I’m on the first family vacation where I’ve brought my golf clubs.   I’ve only played one of the courses, but really liked it.  Oleander.   Jekyll is an island off the Georgia coast, pretty far south.  They have 3, 18 hole courses, and a 9 hole.   The 3 18 hole courses all meet at the same clubhouse from what I’ve seen so far.  
    • “Yes, I’m vaccinated,” says NBA legend Charles Barkley. “Everybody should be vaccinated. Period.” “The only people who are not vaccinated are just assholes,” he says. The 58-year-old NBA Hall-of-Famer says he personally thinks sports leagues should force players to get vaccinated. “Can you imagine if one of these guys that are not vaccinated, if they get one of these players’ kids, wives, girlfriends, moms and dads sick and they die over some unnecessary conspiracy bullshit,” Barkley says. “I think that would be tragic.” NBA legend Charles Barkley: ‘The only people who are not vaccinated are just a--holes' NBA legend Charles Barkley on whether sports leagues should require athletes to get vaccinated.   He was (properly) given a trolling warning by our moderator while I was driving to State College. So he won’t be posting for a little while. You can have your own opinion. You don’t get your own reality, though. And there’s only so much stupid and selfishness we can take here.
