Too much epoxy?
« on: April 27, 2013, 02:48:43 PM »
Had a shaft pulled, installed a different one that was a .335 dia. instead of .350.

Club builder didn't use a sleeve but "a little extra epoxy"

Took it out to play and the moment I took it out of the bag and took a couple of swings it seemed
rather heavy.  after hitting it a few times it wasn't working, feels very heavy especially when
compared to the other shaft that was in it.

haven't said anything to the builder yet....  what's the chance of putting so much extra epoxy
that it has made the swing weight go WAY up?

Don´t think the epoxy will mess with the SW, not enough.

Hope your builder use glass beads or something with the "extra epoxy"... just putting more glue in and installing a .335 shaft in a .350 club, I would have told him to just take it apart again and bring it somewhere else.

Was the shaft weight the same between the two shafts?

Shaft installed is almost identical in weight.  didn't know the tip size was wrong until he handed it back to me and told me.

I'm going to replace it with a real hybrid shaft that's a .350 tip, the weight of the shaft coming out and going back in are
very close to the same.

guess we'll see if it makes any diff.  I am going to ask him the SW before and after to see if it's my imagination or
 what.

I would have thought more in the mind but putting so much epoxy without a hell of a lot of shafting beads might of centre the shaft, which may be the problem.

I also believe that getting epoxy too far up the inside of the shaft can alter playing characteristic some.

You can use normsl building epoxy or epoxy eith texture
Such as glass beads. The latter is used for more stability
Supposedly but never eill i use this to compensate for having
A gap between hosel diameter and club bore.

Tye recommended and standard practice is to use a shim.
As for the invrease in sw i cant imagine epoxy with glass
Beads being a contributing factor to increase sw. Other factors
