Part 4 How To Tip Trim A Golf Shaft

Contents of this fourth video will demonstrate how to tip trim steel golf shafts and how to tip trim graphite golf shafts manually.  For a steel golf shaft, we are going to use our tubing cutter; the preferred method when cutting a golf club shaft by hand. However, to safely cut a graphite or composite golf shaft, we will use a rod saw blade to avoid cracking or splintering what could potentially be a very expensive shaft.

Part 5 How To Properly Abrade or Sand a Golf Shaft Tip

Contents of this fifth video will demonstrate how to properly abrade (prep, sand or roughen) the tip of a golf shaft manually. For both steel golf shafts and graphite golf shafts, we are going to use different grits of sandpaper using a shoeshine method. When done properly, this will allow a proper surface for the epoxy and not cause damage to the shaft at a later date.
