Graphite Myths
« on: March 13, 2018, 10:17:34 AM »
Basic info but useful for those with concerns about some graphite myths...

So are you a sander or reamer?

Given that the graphite shafts that I have used are all in the 100g range,  I can visually see that the wall of the tip section are thick enough that sanding down would not pose an issue.    Another reason I prefer sanding the shaft instead of reaming the hosel is because there is a good chance that I might go back to a steel shaft that is only available with a taper tip.   You could use a shim to compensate,  but it's extra work and parts to put them all together.    Plus,, if you ever wanted to sell your reamed heads,  it will be much more difficult to sell.    For me sanding is the way to go.
