How much does it generally cost to get a driver re-shafted?

12 posts in this topic

I just bought an Aldila vs proto to put in my G10, and I was wondering about how much it generally costs to get the stock shaft pulled and the new shaft installed. I've never re-shafted a club as I generally just buy them with the shaft I want, so I didn't know what I should expect pricewise.

If you already have the shaft, any real golf shop, or even Dick's Sporting Goods will reshaft and regrip for around $15. Don't pay anymore than $20 though, I'm sure you can find someplace to do it cheaper. I only paid $12 to have my driver reshafted and regripped (including cost of the grip). Good luck

I want to live in your area because a reshafting under 20 bucks is way cheap!!!!! I build some clubs and do all my own work but I know the local golf galaxy charges around 50 bucks for a pull and install. Local fitters around here will pull for around 30 bucks or so.

Golfsmith charges $17 for the installation. This does not include the grip.

Also, if you plan on having your shaft pured, it will cost you, at least, $50.

Oh, I didn't get my shaft pured or anything...Does that really make a difference Judging by the cost, I'm assuming it can be pretty beneficial, but what does puring really do? I've heard the term but I don't really know what it means...Since Dick's Sporting Goods is a chain, I'm assuming the price will be the same or relatively similar everywhere (~$20). I got mine done at Golf Etc. in Tampa, FL, and the $12 included a new grip and everything, so I guess I got kind of lucky. I got an Aldila NV75 Stiff for $28 off Rockbottom, so if it was $50 to reshaft I would have just waited and bought a new driver, that price seems so high!

The $50 charge is for having it pured. Again, I'm basing off my experience. It may be cheaper where you live. Basically, puring stabilizes the shaft. It does this by finding the dominant point in the shaft where it flexes. This process results in a softer feel. You may gain more distance and hit the ball straighter. It's a beneficial process as no two golf shafts are the same. This process ensures optimum shaft performance. Hope this helps.

I've had woods re-shafted for $15 before at my local golf shop.

Just called my local Golf U.S.A. store and the rep told me $20 to re-shaft my driver. That's without the grip of course...

At my local Dick's it's $9.99 for a pull, $17.99 to put the shaft in, and I believe another $9.99 for a grip. That doesn't include the price of the shaft or grip, of course. I have a local golf shop that is way cheaper, though. It's like $15 for a pull and re-shaft and only $5 or so for a grip install.

If you have a small, local shop, I just about guarantee you can get a better deal there than at a big retailer.

@nykfan4life: I believe about $7 dollars to put on a new grip. Obviously, though, you'd have to pay for the grip, too. Giddyup!!!!

    • Where is the hole in your game?  Do you struggle close to the green?  Then look at lob wedge.  If you find yourself always needing a 200 yard club then go for a wood or driving iron. I would suggest since you already mentioned you don't hit your hybrid so well replacing it as well.  I don't hit hybrids myself, but there are many different types of hybrids from fat sole driving irons to short shaft woods.  A true hybrid will go a lot farther than an iron of the same loft making a 5 hybrid get into you 3 iron range.  If you go this route I would suggest a 2 and 4 hybrid to cover the gap between driver and irons. My personal preference is toward big fairway woods.  Most people will carry at least a 3 wood.  Lots of pros are using a strong 3 wood, whether it is called a 2 wood, 3+, or mini driver, these guys are using 11 to 14 degree woods with lots of club head speed to get 300 yards out of their fairway wood.  But with slower swings that most amateurs have they should be using a 12 to 14 degree driver meaning they should be using more loft on their fairway wood as well.  To go this route you might want to look at a 4 wood and 7 wood setup.  A 7 wood should be around the same yardage as a 3 hybrid. One last suggestion.  Find a 2nd hand store and look at some older model clubs.  You might just run across a 1 iron for less than $10.  For that price you could grab a hand full of long irons, hybrids, and woods that you can then hit the driving range and find what works for you.  
    • So IMO, if there are easier options to hit that can produce similar results, why play blades?  I had a set of Titleist 710 Cavity Backs and sold them for blades. Simply because they looked cool, and "all good golfers play blades". Well, I wasnt as good a ball striker that I thought I was. I now play AP2's and my handicap is as low as its ever been. For guys like Jordan Spieth and Luke Donald in your example, if they hit it pure most of the time, why risk that 1% where you dont pure it and the blade iron leaves you 15 yards short of your target and in a creek/hazard.  The technology in irons today is incredible for hitting high shots while still being able to work the ball plenty. Im not knocking anyone who plays blades, because that is impressive. It all comes down to preference.

    • Exactly, it comes up a lot in some of those "senior" golf tip sections on TV and in Magazines. We don't have those twist-o-flex spines anymore like we did in our 20's, so a little head start helps. But I think ANYONE can use it to help rotation. We may THINK we get around a lot, but sadly if you saw yourself on video... not so much. Then I wouldn't do it with the long irons. :^)  But seriously, folks... I run into this as well and it's my hands... I will tend to flip and steer the club trying to get the perfect ball flight. Hands get ahead and it's pulled or hooked. REALLY trying to keep my head behind the ball and WATCH the club hit the ball helps a bit, though. Good Luck.
