Tip Trimming SteelFiber


Recommended Posts

I have a question and cant find an answer anywhere on the web. The Steelfiber tip trim chart says “tip trim should not exceed hosel depth”. Im trimming i95 .370 parallels. The reason im confused by this is that the majority of hosels depths out there are shorted than 1-1/2”, which makes the majortiy of this chart pointless. Am i missing something? 728C7712-3BB8-4AF5-BDE9-11DEEF0D4991.jpeg.14056f589712196bb6c02ed1e9139ced.jpeg

I interpret that to mean you can't tip trim it so short that the point past the parallel tip section starts to go into the hosel.   It your hosel depth is 1 1/2" you need to have at least 1 1/2" parallel tip remaining on the shaft.

🙂  Not a stupid question;  better to ask and make sure.   

You cut off the part of the chart that lists the parallel tip length for each shaft.   Looking at the SteelFiber i70 shafts, they have a parallel tip section of 5.5" and if you hosel depth is 1.5" then 5.5 - 1.5 = 4".  So the most you can trim is 4"   I think you should also consider the ferrule as well.
