3 wood shaft

Recommended Posts

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.

    • @Yff Theos Cp cf hit v swing  etc... None of these antiquated and mistaken false dichotomies have much relevance.   Saying a thing like a cp swing has low rate of closure and cf has high really means little.  Also you mention that you know how effective teaching either would be based on player type?  Sounds fishy to me. Correlating roc to skill at ballstriking is highly questionable. Instagram and you tube are not teachers.  IMO if you really want to get somewhere it takes years of experience.  IMO you sound like a person that absolutely correlates kinematics and skill.  Modern research is beginning to find that this is not the case as previously thought. online we all love data and some folks get all into the techy discussions about details.   Ultimately though information is just that.  The player has to execute the shot and that doesn't happen by analyzing the number three accumulator and also it's not a deal where you simply choose how to swing based on the quality of information you know.  Everyone has strengths and weaknesses and there are variations in athletic tendencies.   Mac was a great athlete and totally obsessed with golf.  Maybe it's easy for you to think well I like his mechanics so I will swing like that and teach what he did. But...  
    • @Golfingdad, as you know, he said "2-3 rotations." And the pixel math was on an angle that would make it as short as possible. And when you're talking about 10.56" vs. at least 18", that's a significant margin. Even 15.8 vs. 18" is a non-negligible percentage. But since you brought it up (while I happened to be in front of the TV): 1472.08 ball to hole, 263.62 width of the hole.
      263.62 / 4.25 = 62.02823529 pixels/inch.
      1472.08 pixels / 62.02823529 px/in = 23.73241788 inches. Almost exactly two feet.
    • That's a shame... so much talent. I hope she makes the change.
    • I used a launch monitor today and recorded ten swings from 5 clubs. These were all full swings at about 80%-90% effort. Everything but the driver was without a tee. The employee suggested I discard the duffs, but I decided to keep them. They lowered my averages but I thought they were a good "snapshot" of how I hit. No real surprises on distances or side angles (other than the pull hooks with my 5w), but the numbers on the driver may have provided something to work towards.  I have to do a better job of controlling my low point. Currently, I seem to be bottoming out too close to the ball. I'll have to review "How to hit the driver further" thread. 7i   5w   5i   Driver   4i
