repairing a slightly bent shaft?


Recommended Posts

Hello chaps!

 

I've just bought a set of precept tour premiums (DG R300 w/ sensicore) from 3balls on ebay- I was very impressed with their service and in no way do I blame them for the following.

 

Anyway, the shaft on the pitching wedge is slightly bent - this is only really noticeable when you look down the shaft but it is certainly out of tolerance. Is it possible to bend this back straight without ruining the playing characteristics of the club. I've hit the club a few times and it didn't feel drastically 'wrong' so I guess I could leave it too.

 

I also have two options in re-bending the shaft - give it to the pro or do it myself. I've got access to a pipe bending machine at work so I could possibly have a go with that. Would a proshop have much experience of bending shafts or would they simply stick it in a vice and do it by hand? If that's the case, i'd probably have a go myself with 'better' equipment.

 

Of course, I could just shell out on a new shaft but i'm a tight-wad when it comes to things like that!!

 

Cheers,

Greg

cool - it was bent at the second step up from the hosel - About a third of the way up the shaft.

I bought the set for a pittance so to start re-shafting would have ruined some of the 'bargain-ness' of the set!! Plus I have no idea if my proshop would have had one of the older sensicore shafts in stock.

Thanks again!

If there's just a curvature in the shaft, bend it using the towel method.

If the shaft has a kink or crease, reshaft it. You don't want the shaft to let loose and hurt anyone else.

I need to stay out of the rough and from I between trees and fences. Bent my 7i today. Will try this towel method before shelling out for a new Project x 6.5.

 

Hit a great shot though.
