I play Calloway XR Pro irons and lately I've noticed the ferrules creeping up the shaft. At first it was just my 7 iron but now I've noticed it on multiple clubs. They slide firmly back down the shaft in the club head when I push them down but I'm not sure if they should be moving at all. Is this a normal issue or should I be returning this set? I love the way they feel and play so I'd hate to get rid of them. Would something as simple as epoxy or super glue be a feasible plan to keep them in place? Thanks for answers beforehand!

Super Glue Is easier than epoxy, both would work.
You only need a small amount, put a drop on the top of the club head on opposite sides and slide the ferrule down flush.

Thank you sir. Glad to know I'm not the only one to have had this issue.

It's fairly common. Sometimes the wrong sizes are used, they are very difficult to visible see.
Shaft diameters are only a few millimeters in differences.

Another suggestion, place the drops on the shaft about an eight inch above the heads.
The glue will run down to the top of the head. The glue will then hopefully absorb to the inside of the ferrule as well.

Usually when clubs are assembled, the Epoxy oozes out of the club head and the ferrules are then pushed down.
Any excess is then wiped off and cleaned up.

I've been playing 50 years and have never had this issue, but that doesn't mean you need to send the clubs back. Like Club Rat said a couple small drops of super glue will do the trick!

It's not uncommon for ferrules to come loose.  Some companies do not epoxy their ferrules on when they assemble the clubs, or they can come loose from being in a hot environment like the trunk of a car.

One suggestion I would make before you glue them back down is do a quick check to make sure the heads aren't loose too. Hold the grip with one hand and grab the head with the other and try to twist it.  It just take a second, but better safe than sorry. You'd be surprised how many guys hit a shot, the head flies off and it goes in the water or somehow they lose it.

This happened on my Edel 60* and as above, a little bit of superglue and it hasn't moved since
