I'm wanting to install a SF i125 into a CBX wedge. The measured hosel depth is 1.058". I want to use a 6gm lead tip weight so I will have to tip the shaft 0.25" to make up for the tip weight length. The shaft was slightly overprepped (no by me), so there is a bit of play involved. I use a very tiny amount of shafting beads, and put a slight ream on the top of the hosel so I can use a collared ferrule. Is 0.75" enough shaft insertion or am I risking it?

    Thinking it's not going to be enough, and will end up having to forgo the tip weight. Might have to fill up the hosel bore they drilled to save weight with tungsten powder, and hope I get close to my target swing weight..

    Get a different tip weight would be my suggestion? .25 is pretty thick...you can find much smaller that would give you plenty of depth.

    Was hoping to get at least 6gm so nothing that I've seen is less than .25"

    if the shaft is graphite?, find a Wishon 9 gram tungsten tip weight, the "head" shims the shaft up only 1/8" and the pin can be cut shorter for weight reduction.

    These graphite tip weights will do the job. Will need to drill out the ID of the shaft - but that's not really an issue - just go in stages and careful not to let the drill bit overheat.

    Hireko golf used to have similar weights available as well.
