Ferrule creep. Is this a dyi repair?


Recommended Posts

This is not your typical ferrule creep.  This is the shaft coming loose in the head.  The only repair is to take apart and re-epoxy the shaft back into the head.  Three ways to do this:

 

1.) it destroys the ferrule as you cut it off and pull out the shaft with a puller.

 

2.) using a special pulling adaptor (not many still have one any more - your club is old) you need to take off the grip and slide the pulling adaptor down the shaft and pull off the shaft.  Quite often the head gets chipped as the adaptor or harder than the paint.  Ferrule usually damaged.

 

3.) Cut the shaft off and drill out the shaft.  Re-install a new shaft and ferrule.  By far the easier and less tools.

Older Cally hybrid with flanged ferrule. Wonder what the simplest method is repair might be.

Clearly you can see the shaft isn’t coming out since it’s bore through and the shaft tip hasn’t moved. Apply a small amount of heat like 10 seconds to the ferrule and it should become twistable. Get it to where you can move it then apply a bit of epoxy to it and slide it back in position

Try hot water before a heat gun, use flame last.  Any epoxy product from a hardware store to secure it…if u don’t have shaft epoxies.

As in - soak the head in a container of hot water?

If so , very do-able.

No you can't see it.  Some of these were not true bore-throughs.  Ferrule was epoxied to the shaft and the whole assembly epoxied to the head.  If the ferrule is coming out, the rest of it is too.

Not going to argue with you as I did a whole bunch of reshafting on these. You can see the ring of the shaft and the plug inside it in the pic looking at the sole

As did I, back in time.  Just telling what I experienced.
