    Would you do this with an adjustable hosel/head connection combo?

    Question — on glued in heads (like this M2 FW), do you pull with the ferrule still on and connected to the hosel? I looks like you just let the ferrule get squished as the club was pulling off. I like doing that as well – but have read may “how to’s” and found that they usually say to break loose the ferrule and cut it off.

    Thanks!

      There is no problem at all leaving the ferrule on. It takes a pretty substantial amount of heat for it to catch fire and at the point you’ve probably damaged the shaft too.

      When you leave it on it just mushes up and you also dont run the risk of trying to cut it off either scratching the head or the shaft with a knife.

      Cheers

        Thank you — really appreciate the advice.

        I like to mush the ferrule on these glued in shafts to avoid the metal-on-metal of the shaft puller directly on the hosel.

        Thanks!
