    Re: Impact snaps

    It could possibly be that too much of the chrome was taken off.

    These days when I fit a shaft I try to ensure that some of the chromed area is inside the hosel. I also try to take off only as much chrome as is needed for the shaft to fit in the hosel and get a good 'key' for the epoxy.

    However I would have though that with a company like Titleist that they have some sort of jig to ensure that the amount of the shaft that is de-chromed is fixed.

    I always squirt some wd40 or similar light oil every now and then or when I regrip down the grip butt hole.
    Only shafts I have snapped were one wrapped around a tree, and a graphite when flexing it between hands.
    Forever trying.

    you know, you might be right. I only noticed it the other day and haven't really had time to look.

    I've never snapped a club during a shot. Then again my swing probably isn't fast enough to do it anyway.

    Nothing if all that is wrong is the hosel is loose. They only stay in pace by shrinkage and if you wash your clubs you should only do so in warm water. The way to move them is to pour hot water over them so they expand and move them in to the right position. Some builders will glue them in to place.


    To check if it is the shaft coming out of the hosel just grip the head and the shaft an try twisting it. If it does move then it will probably come out without applying heat. Clean the shaft and inside the hosel and refix using a two part epoxy resin. (plenty of 'how tos' on You Tube).

    they don't stay in place by shrinkage they stay in place because of a tight initial fit and resting against the epoxy glue that has spilt over from the shaft.

    hold the ferrel over a steaming kettle for 10 seconds whilst rotating it. this will melt the glue and it will slide back into place. make sure you put a towel over it first or you'll burn your hands
