Hi, people.

I recently bought a set of Yonex V-mass Tour irons, having got on well with them quite a few sets ago. Disappointingly, the shafts - Dynamic Gold r300s - felt a bit flimsy for what are fairly weighty heads. Rather than offload a set of irons I like in every other way, I've decided to reshaft them. The problem is, nowhere on the internet can I find the required tip size. I've made several attempts to extract the information from Yonex themselves but their customer service department is very much in the same mould as TaylorMade's and Titleist's in that they haven't bothered to reply. I've also had a look at Golf Works' shaft replacement guide but it doesn't cover Yonex. It's a long shot, I know, but I'm hoping someone in the MGS community will have the answer I'm looking for.

 

Thanks for your time.

Hi. Thanks for the reply.

They're tapered. My gut feeling is they're 0.355 but I don't want to spring for a set and find out I'm wrong.

Dynamic Gold website has .355 listed for tapered shafts.  If you have access to a caliper you could measure then.

.355 seems to be a popular fit with Japanese clubmakers so that could be right. Good call on the caliper - A friend of mine is a pipefitter. I think he might use them in his work.

Thanks for your help.

You can pick up digital calipers quite cheaply, they are plenty good enough for what you need.  And they are a handy gadget to have around anyway.

Yes, digital calipers are cheap, just get one on Amazon. I bought one and I find I am using them all the time to measure things.
