Snapped shaft on Mizuno iron. What to do?

Recommended Posts

ttaggart    0

I snapped my 6 iron shaft on my Mizuno MP53's. I believe they have True Temper Dynaflex Gold shafts (Stiff). I will be taking it to my local golf shop to get it fixed but want some advice as to getting the shaft replaced. I'm an 12 handicapper with a low ballflight. Should I just get a regular steel shaft? Anything similar that I should try?

I just worry that they won't have this shaft available or that it will be expensive to get it replaced.

I've never had to replace a shaft before so excuse my naivety.

Dynamic Gold S300-355T shaft will work. You can try on-line at www.golfsmith.com

IDK your length for your 6i.

This is one good think about Mizuno. My friend snapped three shafts for various "reasons", and replacement was easy at Golfsmith.

Yeah, it's honestly not a big deal and shouldn't be too expensive...most steel shafts are not very pricey.  Take both halves of the club with you (if you still have the grip end), or if you don't, take the 5 and 7 iron with you so they know how long to make the 6 iron.  They should be able to match it up if you want the same shaft (or something similar) unless you wanted to use this opportunity to try something different.

Golfsmith charges ~$5 to replace a shaft.  The Dynamic Gold is not expensive either.


Include a nice grip and the total should be $4 (grip) + $10 (service charge without the membership) + $19 (Shaft)= $33 or a bit less if you haggle. The grip installation usually comes with the shaft service.
