When installing a golf club head on a shaft, it's important to use shafting beads to ensure a perfect alignment. Install your golf club head on the shaft with help from a professional golf instructor in this free video on golf clubs.
Hello, this is Conan Elliott. I'm Director of Instruction here at Camas Meadows Golf Club in Camas, Washington. Today we're going to talk about how to install a golf club head on a shaft. The materials we're going to need for this are epoxy, shafting epoxy, we're going to need shafting beads, we need a place to mix the epoxy, a stir stick and of course we need a head and a new shaft. To do that we literally mix equal parts of the, of the resin and the hardener and then add a few shafting beads to it, which are very very important in installing new shafts. They're round, they're perfectly round, they're, it's just a little powder. They're almost exactly like little ball bearings. And so they lay around the shaft between the hosel and the shaft so that the shaft goes in there absolutely perfectly straight and you get a perfect alignment. A lot of people do not use shafting beads, and they work okay. I use them just simply because it just makes a better job out of it. So, they're a little more expensive to use but I do it. The next thing, once you get your epoxy mixed, you want to get a little fine stream going and we want to fill, fill this whole hosel area right here completely full of epoxy from here up. You have your ferule already in place, so we just literally take the, take the shaft and push it into that head until that epoxy comes out the top. Wipe the epoxy clean, then let it dry. Mine, I use twenty four hour epoxy so we let that dry for twenty four hours. We want to turn that head so that shaft is aligned with the head. And it literally sits and dries for twenty four hours. I actually like to leave my epoxy that's left over on this pad. I leave the little stick in it. Tomorrow morning, after around twenty, twenty four hours, I should be able to break that and that be hard and crisp. That way I know these have set up correctly. This is Conan Elliott and that's how to install golf club heads on a shaft.
