re-shafting the MP-60's with graphite
I want to reshaft a set of MP-60's with graphite shafts and I know for a fact that in steel shafts, they use .355 tapered. I noticed though that when we tried another set of steel shafts in .355 taper, we needed to use those brass or copper shims. I also noticed that on the mizuno website, the iron graphite shafts they have for the MX-23 are .370 parallel tips but .355 taper on the steel shafts. Can I put in these Exsar shafts on the MP-60's? I also remember that there was a person selling MP-60's with the Aldila MLTI Pro graphite shafts and he stated that they were .370 parallel. I'm at a loss. Can the .370's be fitted into the MP-60? If the .370's are sanded down to fit will they become useless or prone to break? Thanks for the help.

some shafts are designed so they can be sanded down to fit in a .355 hozel...the ust iron shafts can be penciled to fit...but i'd just try to find a taper set of shafts...check out the grafalloy pro-logic iron shafts...

When you reshaft and iron from a steel shaft to a graphite shaft w/ the same lenght and some what the same swing weight as before w/ the steel shaft, You need to find a shaft that is heavy enough with tip weighted design shaft.

 

Tip weighted design shaft usually are pretty thick wall by the tip, so you should have room to sand it down to become a taper tip and fit perfectly on a 335 tip hosel.

 

Good luck!

Thanks guys. By the way Joe, if I wanted the swing weight to be slightly lighter (e.g. moving from D3 to D1) would I still need a tip weighted shaft and if the graphite shaft isn't tip weighted, would it still be okay to sand it down? I plan to install UST Competition 75 Tour shafts. I know they may not be the greatest iron shafts available but this is just an experiment. if they work out well, the results will be twice as sweet. By the way, would you happen to be familiar with these shafts and what might your opinion of them be? Your advice would be most helpful. Thanks again.

I rarely installed graphite shaft that light (80 gr). My guess at this weight you definitely need a tip weighted design shaft. I wouldn't be surprise even a tip weighted design shaft, at 80 gr it wouldn't be heavy enough.

I once tried 93g graphite shaft in heads.. I had to use tip weights to get swingweight back..They weren't MP60's but I think that will hold true for most heads...

 

I so wanted to play graphite in my irons (bad wrists) but could not deal with the excess spin I created in the long irons....I will try again with heavier graphite with stiffer tips.

that solution is the most common...but i prefer putting the weight where it is needed...in the head not in the hosel...i just use lead tape to weigh up the heads...lead and tungsten powder is great if used sparingly...kind of like msg in food...
