Should I reuse DG shafts? Newbie, go easy.

TM T-Step Professional vs. DG Lite
My old set of irons (Top Flite Tour-Ti) have DG Lite S300 shafts in them. Last season I purchased a set of TM LT2 with OEM stiff shafts. Would there be much of an advantage of upgrading my current shafts and if so could I reuse the DG?

As mentioned I know very little, OK nothing, about club making so if this is a stupid question I apologize.

You sure can.

 

With any shaft the more you take them out and put them in the weaker they will become. Especially with graphite shafts.

 

Just be sure that they have the same hosel size.....335.....350 or both are the same type of hosel. Parellel tip or taper tip.

 

I am sure sure of the specs of each, but these are some of the smartest "tech" people that I have ever met on here so I am sure that one person is bound to know.

not a problem, when pulling shafts if done with a shaft puller and low heat pulling really doesnt have any effect ont he shaft, you can reuse them a bunch of times as long as you dont hurt the shaft when pulling, really shouldnt get weaker if done properly

Two items to watch for with Dynamic Gold:

 

Make sure the bore is the same. Taper tip and parallel tip use different bore diameters. You can shim taper to fit into paralle, but not the other way around.

 

Make sure that the pulls were not overheated. If the chrome is discolored to a brown or blue color, the tip got heated too much and might have lost it's temper. You'll find out the hard way when tips start bending at the hosel on you. If they are pulled at low heat, you can reshaft them multiple times without issue.

Thanks for the insight. Glad to hear that.

 

What about quality? Does anyone know about the TM T-Step Professional shafts comapared to a DG Lite? I know that the TM are lightweight shafts (110 gm) so changing to the DG Lite (109 gm) would not be a big change, but I am wondering about overall quality an consistant flex.

 

Any thoughts?
