Universal Tip for irons


Recommended Posts

Hey Spies! My brother lost his 9 iron and doing a rebuild for him. It’s the original Cobra Forged Tec with the orange on the badge. I looks at the GolfWorks chart and it said “universal tip size.” I’ve rebuilt a few irons and wedges and haven’t run across this yet. So am I better off getting a .355 and putting a shim on it or getting a .370 and just going from there? Any special advice or tips would be appreciated!

I would imagine it's .355

If you give me till tomorrow morning I can get it for you 100%

I have a 4 iron that's been doing nothing the last few years and can pull it and measure.

Per the golfworks chart it is a dual bore hosel that will fit both a .355 and a .370 shaft.  Looks like need to use a collared ferule.

The dual hosel is exactly as it sounds.  It will accept either shaft but the .355t will seat ever so slightly farther in.  The collared ferrule may or may not be needed as that has nothing to do with the universal hosel from my experience.

McGolf would probably know that answer off the top of his head, I thinking it will take either size tip into the hosel.

I’m sure he would! I watch a lot of his videos and I watched him have to almost round the tip of a shaft to make it fit. Just wanted to be sure before I bought/got one either way.

I'm guessing by 'universal' they probably mean unitized - in which case it's .370" by default. However as others have mentioned it could be either, but the .355" option may require a bit of extra shafting beads or a shim for a snug fit.

EDIT: having asked around, they are indeed a universal bore accepting either parallel or taper tip. Nobody has encountered any issues with the taper shaft insertion, or parallel for that matter - but it may be worth checking bore depth if you want to get BBTG spot on for precise flex if you're tip trimming your parallel - or indeed selecting your favoured taper shaft for the respective iron #.

Happy club building everyone.
