i have a couple questions about reshafting my 3 wood. (i'm going to do it myself)

i broke my mizuno mp-001 3 wood a couple weeks ago when i pat my divot down, the head just popped off and the shaft was broken almost flush with the hosel, it just has a small triangular point sticking up where i assume the shaft first cracked. (no... i did not beat the club, it was actually a GREAT shot)

whats the best way to get the remainder of the broken shaft out?? drill it??

does anybody know what the tip size is on these fairway woods??

when i buy a new shaft, do i just buy a driver shaft and cut it down from the butt end? i havent found any bona fide fairway shafts on the golfsmith website, this is why i ask..

is the ferrule really nescessary, or is it just for looks?

appreciate it, this is my first time doing this. i contemplated just buying a new fairway wood, but i love this thing better than my own wife, and i couldnt find any newer fairway woods that i like better than this one at address. not a big fan of overside FW heads and deep faces.

appreciate the info.

Unless there is enough left to grab with some pliers. Just be careful not to drill too deep and make sure you get all the little bits out. If you don't, it will rattle and drive you insane.

The PDF file linked above lists it at .335. Awesome link, btw.

You could do that, but it will play a little soft in the tip and cause a bit higher launch and spin. The website of the manufacturer of your new shaft should have tip trimming instructions that tell you how much of the tip to cut off to achieve the recommended tip stiffness for each club. Then cut the butt end for final length.

is the ferrule really nescessary, or is it just for looks?

Just for looks, but they are easy to install and dirt cheap.

I understand. Had to do this with a Ping G2 3W of mine my wife's little cousin broke a couple years ago. If you are mechanically inclined at all, most basic club repair isn't too difficult.

Just read all the guides on the Golfsmith clubmaker's site. They have very good step-by-step instructions and videos.
