I have complete set Ping Eye-2’s that I want to re-shaft. In order to select a good shaft, do I need to know if the hosel is .355” or .366”? I’m new to club making and think I need to know if desired shaft should be taper or parallel.

    Ping Eye 2 irons take .355" taper tip shafts.

    Thanks raggal62. I’m told by a club guy that my Ping heads have a .370 hosel opening and I should get parallel shafts. Do you agree?
