Club Head Coming Off?

Recommended Posts

Our Sponsors

I've started to notice that the head of my hybrid seems to be pulling away from the ferrule of the club. The space between the two has started to get noticeably bigger the past couple days. Should I be taking this in to get repaired? I don't want my club head to go flying on a random shot and lose it. Or worse, hit someone.

Is the clubhead loose or is the ferrule rising up the shaft? Without seeing the club it isn’t easy for us to diagnose. Don’t try to twist the head because if the epoxy has failed you could damage a graphite shaft.

If the ferrule might be rising up the shaft would this be an easy fix with just pushing it back down to the club head? Not home right now to confirm this but your reply is giving me some slight hope right now.

You might be able to push it down, but it will be tight. You should also add a little bit of epoxy to try and keep it from riding up again. If it is the ferrule, it will probably do it again.

It may not be easy.  If it is, then just place a little epoxy between it and the clubhead.  If not, it's easy to damage the ferrule.  Might be best to take it to someone to repair, if you aren't comfortable with do it.

Is the shaft steel or graphite?

The shaft with my hybrid is graphite. I have been noticing this a little on my newer irons as well which are steel.

It sounds like the shafts were not prepared properly when assembled.  This same issue was discussed a couple of months ago, so it does happen.  See...

The Jaskanski post in this thread describes what can be done.  He's the expert.  It has to be done carefully to not damage the ferrule.  It doesn't take much heat to soften the ferrule, and anything you grip it with can leave marks.

If you can't get it back in place and secured or the ferrule is damaged, then the head will need to be pulled, a new ferrule put on and the head re-installed.  It's not difficult if you have the tools and knowledge, but if not done right, a graphite shaft can be ruined.  Steel is easier.  If you are not comfortable with it, might be worth seeking a qualified golf repair shop.

Thank you so much for the response this is really helpful. Now to get some epoxy!
