Creaking PW


bekgolf

Recommended Posts

Last fall I assembled a set of Maltby TS-2 irons.  Played one time and decided it was too late in the season to get used to them, they will come out in mid spring.  I was examining them a few days ago and the PW has a creak that wasn't noticed last year.  I've isolated it to the hosel area.

 

The head is bonded to the shaft, no movement is detected.  I'm not sure where to go from here except to disassemble and reglue.  The heads were originally glued with all surfaces well prepped and solvent cleaned, the epoxy was applied in a manner that eliminates surface air interfering with the bond, there is a tip weight and the shaft is graphite.

 

Could the creak be coming from the ferrule to shaft junction?  Is there a way to check or fix without disassembling? 

 

Thanks

Yep. Ferrule can do it as well.  If you can grab the head/grip and twist in either direction (even better if you can install into a vice), that’s where I would lean.

Most likely an epoxy void down in the hosel.  What kind of epoxy did you use...and please tell us it's not Tour Set! 🤞

VB1007 from Golf Works.  It's a 24 hour type  https://www.golfworks.com/the-golfworks-high-strength-epoxy-packets/p/vb1007/

 

I'd be surprised to find a void but anything is possible.  The oddest thing for me is that this just started (or I just noticed) but the clubs were assembled last fall and it's just the PW.

It’s the ferrule most likely. The epoxy between the ferrule and hosel starts to “crack” I don’t know how else to describe it. The club structurally is probably just fine. 25 years ago I found out often if anything makes that creak sound that’s where it comes from. I don’t let epoxy in that area and have never had a creeker since

Perhaps it's the ferrule, you'll know soon enough when you get back out on the course and the ferrule starts to separate from the head and you'll see a slight gap between the two.  Then it's time to pull & re-do.

 

Edit: A word of caution if you place the shaft in a clamp/vise be careful on how much pressure you put on twisting the head to see if thats the problem, you could damage the shaft and the next time you put a good swing on the club the head could break at hosel & fly off into the pond. I know, found out the hard way with a Steelfiber i95 & 7 iron.
