I also had the same thing happen with a Tour edge 3 wood. Only 3 rounds on it and a range day. 

Great clubs but got tired of sending them back for repair so that’s why I picked up the older AeroBurner black.

I broke the shaft of a G25 Driver, in S flex. Git it online for $100 & figured it was a pretty good deal. Club was in great shape.

Two years in, it snapped on the first tee box. Was not too upset because I took the game up at 57, and after learning a ton more about the game, equipment etc. I realized I really should be using a 

Regular Flex Shaft, as my Swing Speed is in the mid 90's, and I'm not getting any younger. Actually played my first year with a torn left MCL which caused me to open my left foot a lot leading to hitting fades on every drive. After I had a scope done, I could then hit the ball straight & began taking some lessons. Still working on shallowing the swing and carry distance. I try to stretch each morning, but at 61 don't know how effective that will be. During covid, I did lose 14 pounds and I think I have put a lot more rotation and follow thru I'm my swing. But, still working on distance.

Took up the game late in life.

Holy cow, I had this happen this spring to my G400 with the Evenflow Black 60 stiff shaft. The shaft was in my G400 for almost 3 years. I got a replacement and after 3 rounds the same issue occurred. That shaft has been discontinued, but Inwas able to get a 3rd one and that one is holding up, so far. Too weird that this topic popped up now though.

Along the lines of broken shafts, I had an evenflow blue shaft snap at the flex point at the beginning of the season on a normal swing. Under warranty, replaced, sold the driver, upgraded to the Mavrik, all good.

I noticed yesterday that the ferrule on my new driver shaft has crept up a little and now on ~50% I get a “click” on the follow through on the shaft. Is this something I should be worried about/try to fix myself? I am assuming after searching a little that it was an epoxy issue and I can’t move the ferrule with my hand or with a bit of pressure from pliers. I don’t want to really get after it unless I know I’m not going to damage the shaft… other info, it’s an aldila rogue white stiff shaft (standard) and I likely could have the shaft fixed or replaced by Callaway. Thanks in advance for any feedback!
