I absolutely love my set of AXE shafts in Apex Pros. Can't wait for the season to start.

Thank you Alez for the Project X shaft! The man is a THP treasure! I hope I do you proud in July!

Installing a couple different options in my 1 bag's 7i and 8i, he's playing R flex nippon 950 and he's surpassed them with his swing by a freaking monstrous amount. Tour V and DG Pro are going to get a run in those and we will look at the ball flight from there.

Got this done. Will be fun to see how it go's and what he thinks from hitting them blind. I'm going to hand them to him at address and have him swing.

Yeah, its a two-fold win for me. He gets into something that fits him better which is good for the team, and I get to use him as a guinea pig for my own testing.

Steel iron shaft into head process:
Heat gun.
hosel cleaning things.
ferrules.
weights if you're not lazy (I'm lazy).
epoxy.
Common sense.

Congratulations, you've graduated club building school!

Do you need a shaft puller?

I do think this week I will try my first stamping/paintfill on a putter I have laying around. Should be interesting to see how that turns out

The biggest reason for a shaft puller (in my opinion) is that it can pull graphite straight out without twisting which can ruin it. That said, it is wildly easier to pull steel with a puller as well, especially with weights in the heads.

Not necessary, but I definitely use my puller on steel at times.

When I pulled my steel I used a heat gun, which took awhile for the first to come off. Once the gun got warm they came off easy.
Had intentions of putting graphite in until people starting talking about swing weights. So shafts are sitting there.

What weight steel did you pull what weight graphite are you putting in?

Tip for stamping: use two sides tape and at least 10lb hammer. Don't be tentative either.

After installing the Tour V into the 712 Ap1 7i and 8i, I found a 588 3w head on a shelf and a Fubuki ax 3w shaft, slapped them together and they'll be a good learn to use a 3w club for a couple of my guys.
