  1. Well I finally got the screw off. I tried everyones’s suggestions without success, ended up getting pissed and pried the screw out using a flathead screwdriver. The spring ended up just coming through the side of the screw head.
  2. It's hard to see, but the spring is screwed to the the screw at the very bottom. IMG_6793.HEIC
  3. So the screw with the spring screwed onto it is still in my G425 head. For the life of me, I cannot figure out how to get it off. I tried screwing the shaft that now doesn’t have that thread spring back in, didn’t work. I’ve tried trying to use tweezers to hold the spring in place while I unscrewed the screw out of it. That didn’t work either. Anyone have any ideas how to get it out? Im perfectly fine with ruining the screw.
  4. Forgot to come back and let you know... Using insertion depths that I found online, it looks like your graphic is 1 inch closer to the tip. I think there's about a 99% chance that your's is tipped 1" and mine isn't tipped at all. The only way that's not the case is if Taylormade tipped yours more than an inch, which I don't think they would do without you asking for it. Thank you so much for your help!
  5. Anyone? I reached out to UST and haven't gotten a response.
  6. Ok, Liam made it seem like the rubber washer is basically a spacer to make sure you don't screw it in too fair. I just find that a little hard to believe because its so small. I'm thinking about leaving the spring on the screw to act as a "spacer" to make sure this doesn't happen again. Anyone see an issue with that?
  7. Hey guys. I bought a UST Lin-Q purple shaft used and previous owner does not know if it has been tipped. Does anyone has this shaft and can tell me some sort of measurement from tip to graphic?
  8. Liam sent me a pdf of “tips” that is a little hard to understand. But what I might be missing is that the rubber washer goes into the head on the side of the shaft. Is that true?
  9. Two weeks ago. And a screw didn’t come with the collar so I’m pretty sure the Ping screw is what is standard now.
  10. I used the correct screw but the threading still came out of one adapter. The spring is currently still on the screw, which is now stuck on the head. I can put another shaft on it (the spring just squishes down) but I would like to get the spring off the screw and the screw off the head. Any ideas how I could do that? Also, any tips to make sure this doesn’t happen again? I used the standard screw on a G425 max head. I’m pretty sure I did everything right. Liam is super nice but I’m struggling to understand what he’s trying to say.
  11. You guys have probably seen this but they are up on the DSG website.
  12. I absolutely agree with this thinking. My wife tried to convince me this past week that I like golf equipment more than I like golf itself. I couldn't admit that, from fear of the golf gods but I can dig thinking of them as 2 different hobbies.

Need some opinions on good shafts out there. My SS is about 100 - 105. Ball flight is medium to high. Distance is about 270 - 280 with roll. I'm looking for something with a little more of a piercing flight and lower spin. I was thinking of going Tour AD but the someone told me they are out of business so stock is limited? Is that true. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks!! [/quote] So your swing speed is 100-105 and you're hitting it 270-280?? I wouldn't change a thing. I didn't know that was possible with those numbers and what your saying to be too much spin. [/quote] I guess that shows how much you know. Maggert, for example swings at 105mph and carries the ball 258 yards. I'm happy to say that I was swinging between 103 and 106 during my fitting and was carrying the ball closer to 260 and getting about 15 yards of roll with my new lower launching shaft. People like me who hit the center of the clubface most of the time don't need to swing 110mph to hit the ball 280 yards. [/quote] No actually it makes my point. You were hitting it 270-280 before. Now you are hitting it 260+15 which I'm pretty sure equals 275. I think that's between 270-280... maybe I'm stupid though. So like I said, I wouldn't change a thing, and obviously, the new shaft didn't change anything either.
