Graphite wedge shaft pull


Recommended Posts

Our Sponsors

I suppose my fitter will answer this but I’m inpatient and you guys are good.

 

I have a SCOR 53 with my preferred graphite shaft in it. The wedge head itself is pretty well spent and I prefer the 52 that I have if I’m gaming the SCORs which I will continue to do until I get more comfortable with the Edison’s.

 

So I have a 58 with a steal shaft - the head is still in very good shape. Should the fitter be able to pull the shaft from the 53 and put it in the 58?

Currently testing Edison wedges to replace SCORS that are wearing out. Also auditions for the 14th spot in the bag.  Current possibilities are a Ping 26 degree hybrid - duplicates the 9 wood or 5 iron but would be used almost exclusively for chipping or Tour Exotics 3 wood simply because you can carry 14 clubs and I might occasionally hit it in certain unusual wind conditions once every four or five rounds.

I don't see why not since it is the same head just a different loft; probably just have to change the ferule since it will most likely melt from the heat.   The only question would be if you have all your wedges at the same length.

Yes.  If I remember correctly, you had very lightweight shafts in your SCORs.  Did you have that shaft in your original 58?  Might feel light otherwise.  I always liked a little weightier SW/LW.

I agree that the ferrule will melt, but hopefully your fitter will be cautious and go light on the heat. Graphite shafts will melt very quickly with too much heat. Whenever I pull graphite, even with adapters, I use a tension shaft puller and a heat gun, set on low. It takes a little longer, but the shaft doesn't melt and break. Nothing better than destroying the shaft you want to keep. Good luck.

I think see to prefer a heavier shaft but that’s changed. I actually have a KBS tour metal shaft in it right now - don’t like it, the shaft, at all.

Worst case scenario I just continue to game the 60 until I’m comfortable with the Edison’s
