This is my first post so please be nice. I purchased my first set of golf irons after doing lots of research on beginner irons I went for a set of second hand TM Rsi1's I got them quite cheap as the 7 iron needs Re shafting. On closer inspection it seams like most of the iron heads have started pulling away from the shafts. I've decided on giving the re shafting a go myself but I'm not sure what ferrules I need. Any advice on the re shafting process would be much appreciated Thanks in advance
Reshafted my Apex CF16s with KBS Tours before the weekend. For my first time reshafting golf clubs, the job went pretty smoothly. Mostly. Learned that being able to put golf clubs together and being able to build a set of clubs are two completely different things. Pulling the heads and prepping everything was pretty straightforward. I bought shaft pulls so I had to clean out the epoxy from the inside of the shafts, too. The ferrules aren't as clean or nice looking as they can be, but honestly I don't care that much. Not looking to sell these anyway. Mixing the epoxy was pretty easy, too. I wasn't sure how much I was going to need so I just mixed a little at a time as I needed. The only part that gave me some trouble was shimming the shafts. The shafts I bought are tapered and CF16s are parallel bore, so I had to shim the tips. I opted to go with fiberglass drywall tape because I read that it is actually better than brass shims, but that was a bit of trial and error in working with the stuff and a whole lot of mess. I also didn't bother with swingweighting and didn't get any tip weights to put it. I don't think it will matter too much anyway, as I have read that KBS shafts are a bit of a pain to swingweight properly because they are counterbalanced. That and I don't own a swingweight scale. I'm increasing the static weight of the clubs by 25g, so that is going to significantly alter the feel anyway. I'll get some lead tape if I need to play around with the feel more. I also hardstepped them once. Once they cured for 24 (actually 36) hours, I twisted them to check the bond and didn't find any issues. Installed some brand new PURE DTX grips on them with the alignment slightly anticlockwise from the clubface so that the club is slightly open at address if I line up my hands with the grip. Swung them around in the yard and they feel great. Never really knew how different heavier shafts would feel until I got that fitting done and I feel the club so much more with these now. Will test them out on the range during the week. Hopefully none of the heads come flying off
I am looking to reshaft my ap1s and I am not sure which shaft to buy. Online I've read AP1s are .355 tapered, can I trim a .370 to fit in the head of AP1s? Does it ruin the integrity of the shaft, steel or graphite?
