Shaft will only go half way down my hosel

Recommended Posts

wedda    0

Hello fellow golfers,


I just fitted my 0.355 hosel driver head with my 0.355 shaft but it would only go half way down.. Is this a problem or will it last?

About 1 inch went down the driverhead but after that, there is a aluminium ridge that my shaft wouldnt go down into.. I sandpapered my shaft but still it wouldnt go down that extra inch.. Anyone done this before and it went okay?

Let's just say the driverhead is about 2 inch deep so I filled 1 inch.. On the driverhead I had before, it bottomed at 1 inch..


Best regards,

Are you sure it's not a 0.335T head?

0.020 inches is a lot, but that might account for it?

Tapered 0.335 The more standard size for drivers is 0.335.

Never mind.. The head is made like that.. There is a aluminium Ridge that stops the shaft from going more than 35mm.. Maybe I should've out epoxy in the hole as well.. We will see if the head flies off the shaft =)

Is it an insert?

1st the .335 is parallel not tapered. 2nd, it's there for a hosel weight to achieve a target swing weight.

Then it's probably not aluminum, unless they want to go lighter???

EDIT: Strange that there would be anything down the hosel made of Aluminum.

The guy I bought the head from told me it's an aluminium ridge down the hosel, so I just need to put it down 35 mm then it will work just great.. I haven't tried the club at the golfcourse yet..


I had a geek driver head before with the shaft, and that was 35 mm deep.. so it seems to be legit.. :)

Thanks for all the input though!

    • I'm a member at the club where Xander grew up playing, obviously everyone is super excited to see him get this win and launch himself into "elite" status on tour. He won 1.58M and an extra 2M for finishing 3rd in Fed Ex Cup. This time last year he was playing in the Web.com finals.
    • Gotcha. Thanks. That's a possibility too. I don't feel like I am hanging back but as you know feel ain't real.  Most likely my problem is a combination of things (maybe ball too far back combined with hanging back?). This started happening out of the blue and has been going on for about 2 weeks (5-6 rounds), and even with range work i have not been able to shake it off... yet! Thank you all for the suggestions. I'll try to double check them one at a time until I can tell for sure whether my not implementing them is the culprit. It shouldn't be too hard to recover from this, but it sure is annoying...
    • https://www.gamegolf.com/player/JonMa1/round/1859679?hole_id=34840967 Short and mid iron approaches were pretty good. Pitches, chips were fine. I just had a rough time controlling the driver until the 13th today. Also had issues topping some 5i and 4i shots though I did hit a couple nice 4i shots. Putting was pretty poor today. I'm getting acceptable distance from my driver since having the shaft shortened and contact seems better. Unfortunately, controlling the club face continues to be a challenge. Excessive penalties have been the theme for 2017. Lowering my handicap from longer courses will be next to impossible if I don't improve this part of my game.
    • I'm surprised he didn't at least ponder if there was a rule on that. I didn't know but had it happened to me I definitely would've asked my partner or someone there, 'hey is there a rule about this?' Certainly shows how it pays to know the rules. 
    • At 63 I have all the same challenges others have noted. In addition, poorer eyesight has been a new challenge. I never had to play with glasses from age 10 to late 40's and then quit golf. Now at 63 and back playing golf, just seeing the ball clearly at address has been a significant issue for me. And of course corrective lenses that work at address aren't right for reading or distance vision. Anyone else? I'm afraid between poorer vision and all the senior physical challenges, my days of consistently finding the sweet spot on my clubs are probably over. Game improvement clubs here I (reluctantly) come...
