i searched but couldn’t find anything on this topic...

does anyone remove the shaft stickers from their irons/wedges? 

everyone loves minimalist club heads and no distracting branding, so i’m curious why most people leave a big sticker on their iron shafts.

I would say people generally focus more on the head than that far up the shaft. I don’t notice mine but many shaft manufacturers have the logos pointed down so you don’t see them. Removing could be difficult since some are actually paint like Nippon shafts.

Here is an article from MGS about how ping moved their putter labels.

I don’t mind semi-gaudy iron heads (unless I have to see it at address) and I sort of like to advert my KBS shafts. (I’m a BIG fan) So... no I wouldn’t spend my time & effort stripping the labels off.

Over time, taking the club in and out of a bag, rubbing against each other, years later they come off naturally. This usually reduces the trade in value if the shafts can no longer be identified. 

I wouldn't bother. 

Golf is simple - people are complicated.

i care very little about trade in or resale value, especially since there aren’t a ton of people who have the speed to game DG X7 shafts in their irons. 

more a question of curiosity

I personally don't care about resale or the stickers. I like clean very clean so I usually remove the decals when they start fallling off. I play a couple times a week and the in and out of the bag usually wears them off pretty quickly.

I was actually looking into this the other day. I have blacked out wedges and was looking at putting a wrap on the shaft to black it all out. I found only a few companies that do it. I have noticed that people don't like stock shaft stickers missing as it can lose value. To be honest my wedges will be used until they die. Some of these wrap companies have images and various colors too.

if you just want to go matte black, you can cut heat shrink tubing to size and run a heat gun over the shaft of your club. 

you could also bring your clubs to an auto body shop that does car wraps. 

i’m guessing a wrap would add 5-10g of weight to the club though.

Appreciate the tips. I didn't even think about the added weight. Thanks for the heads up!

depending how comfortable you are pulling your own shafts and reassembling them, you can always look into having them powder coated
