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.

    • I can't wait to hear about them.  I'm probably not getting new hybrids this year, but if I did, these would be near the top of my consideration list.  Please let us know how they are.
    • I read something recently in either Golf Digest or Golf Magazine and it listed I think the top 50 players and what they played for irons.  It was a blades/ combo set/ whatever set type of article.  I showed that they were very few players playing a full set of MB’s.  If I recall correctly, most were gaming some type of combo set.   Clubs like the TM p770 are just so good now, their benefits are more attractive to better players.
    • Thing is TV shows the good shots, the putts being made so we all think they hit everything close and make every putt. Go look up PGA tour proximity to the hole... you’d be surprised it’s not close like you see.
    • I would have to agree, as agile and strong as they are with a game of golf, they probably would look pathetic in a fighting ring. If and when they get their dup together that will be a good show. Although I think the media has hyped it beyond what it really is and would just be a competitive round of golf like most others.
    • I dunno. Watching two meat heads who probably have no idea how to fight isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. I’d rather see them play some serious golf and really give the tour a show.
