Why Am I Breaking Driver Shafts at Hosel?!


Recommended Posts

I am having the same problem. I have Taylor made Sim driver. I got fitted for less than 1 year ago. I have broken 3 shafts ( Hzrdus xstiff). I am really not sure what to do going foward. I have never had a driver shaft break until I got a new driver? I am wondering should I get a steel Shaft or heavier graphite shaft?

Just had a less than month old Ventus do the same thing. Snapped off at hosel, no abuse, and while I tend to hit toward the toe my misses are not that extreme. Waiting to hear back from Fujikura on that one.

I just snapped my 2nd shaft within a year yesterday. 1st shaft I snapped was a Stiff Tour AD and the second was a Hazardous X Stiff shaft. Both snaps occured on my Mizuno ST200G. I am a big hitter that swings in the of 120 and I tend to carry the ball about 300 yards average. I am not most consistent ball striker with my driver and 3 out of 10 shots can be slightly heel-ly. That being said, I have never struck the hosel before.


I used to have a callaway big bertha driver and it had never snapped throughout the 6 years I used it. Not sure if its a club issue or I am just a bad ball stricker with the driver.
