    Why do ferrules ride up the shaft?

    I have a few clubs in my bag where the ferrule is on the move. Ok, I can shove it back down, but why do they ride up?

    If I swing a club, the forces involved should compress the ferrule against the club head, and yet it doesn't. It moves the other way.

    Ideas?

    Callaway Rogue SZ 3 and 5w
    Callaway Rogue 19 and 24 hybrid

    A guess is that there is nowhere to go when forced down so they bounce back up the shaft from the force you mention, as I say only guessing though
    In the bag:
    TM M1 9.5 degree
    TM M1 17 degree hybrid
    Orka RS1/RS3 Irons 3-PW
    Orka RS10 Wedges 52,56,60
    Ping Ketsch

    Handicap: 7

    Just throwing a theory out there, so may be completely wrong, but when the club is in your bag, it is upside down, when you pick up the bag, put it down, carry, or even go over bumps in a trolley, the percussion may cause it to slide down.

    Probably due to being stored upright in the bag for the majority of the time on the course and shake down when loose.

    it happens due to sloppy workmanship and cheap glue. i have 2 sets of clubs. one set made by ping the other set stripped and remade by a club builder. every club but one of my pings have ridden up but not one on my taylormades

    But once moved, they can't bounce anymore, as they are not in contact.

    My 5 wood is 5mm away from the club head, and to say it is loose, no way. It is tight as, and I am going to need a hairdryer to get it back down.

    Can't see this, as it is tight as when tried to move by hand.

    So a swept 5w has an equal and opposite reaction up the shaft? This is at 90 odd degrees to the impact. Not having it.
