    Shaft removal

    not being a smart a$$ - don't. if you don't have a puller you risk damaging the shaft as you already know, right tool for the right job. There are inexpensive pullers that are not the brightest shiniest tool out there but work. A small invest could save you big $$$$ in new replacements. screw type pullers. maybe even a used one in the Mitchell stable might do the trick. If not look up GW
  2. If you mic'd the shafts above the hosel ? ferrules and came up with 365 chances are the shafts you are looking for are .355 In either case you cold just ream the hosels to accept the 370 and then have a lot of options available to install if he intends on playing the clubs. If its for a memento then staying original is better. Lastly if you are going to replace them then pull the shaft and actually gauge the hosel to ensure you are getting the correct ones and saving a bit of time
  3. Had to go look up the driver. Just my opinion. The tungsten weight in the back is competing with the removable weight. The more weight added could pull back the CoG a bit to make the club feel more lofted and less active while allowing the club to hang a bit open at impact. Where the lighter weight pushed the CoG forward and having the opposite affect. Again I would be guessing the 7g weight is the one designed to be installed for most golfers and off the rack models. Where the other weights tweak for feel, slight directional control changed ETc.
  4. back to the original post. What is the problem? Did you buy the cobras with the lighter shafts and find out that 120s were better for you? Do you not like the 120s? Its late so I may be missing it. Thanks

    New Srixon/Cleveland Gear for 2019

    Just did a video reshafting some of the irons. They are impressive. For those of us that stand on the right side of the ball if they can't offer a wood in the category it wont matter how good it is (sad face). Lets hope they did good enough last year to add us.

    Don't get hung up on matching the SW. the 2 to 2.5" change makes it nearly impossible to match in conventional terms, tip weights, tape. You might need the tungsten powder down the shaft to get in the right range.

    chances are it has a pin you will have to take out and if you like the original look put back in. That hasn't been done well since the time of that iron. When I certified as a clubmaker, it was the first of only two times I needed to do that. Second - the tip section in the day was smaller than now. I cant tell you if that model was one but you are in the neighbor hood of needing a smaller taper tip shaft. Third - going from a 2I to a 7I in length will already mess with the SW not to mention the larger grip. meaning light!
  8. One of the first questions I ask in the fitting is - are you brand sensitive. meaning is there a brand you particularly want or do you care. If the golfer likes or certainly wants a brand we don't carry we get on the computer and go over specs of the club brand of choice. I have gone so far as to call another company we don't carry to order a set via the local rep so the player can get what they want. It is impractical to carry every brand particularly in my area (rural).

    New iron review after 2 rounds

    Excellent!! glad to hear it s working, another reason for the lefts could have been the large offset the Eye2s have. The clubs are great no doubt it, sounds like you are a golfer that just needed less offset with the shafts.

    New grips today

    Going forward if you like the softer feel and want a longer wear time look into the CP2 line from golf pride. Not as soft as Winn BUT a good tacki feeling and the low taper rate is nice too

    I like it!
  13. TO answer the question, yes there is a limited number of back and forth adjustments you can make. Just keep an eye on the hosel for deterioration
  14. if the club is pinned, there could be something hanging around that area
