Hey guys got a couple questions about an ongoing issue I am having with my Cobra LTD driver and breaking shafts. I will try to keep this short. So i really liked a friends Cobra with an Oban shaft in it so I decided to get an LTD late last season. Picked up a new one for a deal with stock shaft (weak X stiff) and had reputable local golf shop pull a Titleist adapter off one of my Rogue 80X and put a cobra adapter on it. Range session or two and a couple rounds it was rocking it. Maybe 2nd or 3rd round with it I heard something after I hit one. I inspect shaft at tip and its cracked and I can wiggle tip around? Not good. (see first photo) So i took back to golf shop I had tips swapped and they got me a new rogue 80x. I took to another (different) reputable local golf shop and had same thing done. Pulled Titleist adapter and put on cobra tip. First round with it maybe on 3rd drive of the day I heard it again! Go to put headcover on it and leave in bag and head just fell right off! Awful! (see second photo) They both say tips were installed properly and looked fine. This is not the first issue I have heard of this either. Played with a guy today that broke a Matrix shaft in his ltd right at the tip as well and heard of several others as well locally. My question is what can i do? I have a brand new Rogue 80X uncut and a brand new OEM cobra tip coming now but do I risk again? Aldila recommends tipping the black/silver series 1" but can I do more? Maybe that would help? Do I change shafts? Really don't want to because I like comparing apples to apples. My 913/917 with rogue to cobra with rogue. I am really at a loss on what to do since it was my favorite driver and had best distance and accuracy. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

I'm not sure what would help or hurt this but the only driver shaft that I've broken besides an old stock R11 shaft was an Aldila Rogue Silver 70 X. It didn't break at the tip but almost perfectly in the middle. I loved the Rogue but I don't have the balls to buy another one and risk it.

This is no coincidence then. I had the exact same thing happen to my rogue black and rogue silver. Both were pulls from a Titleist that I threw into my cobra F6+ it's gotta be the way Titleist preps vs the cobra Adaptor or something I swear.

Well I have an uncut rogue sitting in my room so I try it now? Also buying a 75 x hazardous shaft to try in the meantime from a local just to see.

Titleist has a longer tip prep for their adapter/ ferrule combo.
When moving a shaft from a Titleist to a Cobra adapter I always
tip the shaft .25" to .5" to get the prep area below the top edge
of  the adapter. Also deburr the inside edge of the adapter just
to be safe.

I had a Diamana 'ahina that cracked inside a Cobra adapter in my LTD. It was a pull from a Ping Anser I had before (I liked the shaft).

Haven't had any trouble with the new shafts I've put in the head since, a Fujikura Speeder Evo Tour Spec 7.2 and an Atmos Black.

Like ckay said, avoiding pulls will probably save you the hassle.

If it helps at all, my Rogue Silver was a free upgrade straight from Taylormade for a custom order M2. It wasn't a pull or anything.

That's the definition of a pull. It was installed on an M2 with a TM Adaptor which u now pull to use a cobra.

No didn't pull to put onto a Cobra. I'm saying it broke in my M2. Just saying that this probably isn't simply a pulling and retipping issue.

The Rogue silver 8X is a stout shaft. Usually tip it only for aggressive swings / .5" for swing speeds 115 to 120mph / 1" for 120+

The Rogue Black I would tip .5" for 110 to 115mph / 1" for 115 to 120.
Over 120mph there are usually  other shafts that work better.

1 to 2 feet would be just a liittle excessive. ....

Haha oops typo that would be insane!

Aldila recommends tipping 1" and I swing 110 ish with a harsher/quicker transition hence the stout shaft. Didn't know if I should tip more then their recommendation

If I read the Aldila tipping instructions correctly, they were
recommending 1" tipping for fairways.  At your speed and swing
style I would start at .5" , I like to error on the soft side,
can always tip a little more later if needed.

Titleist D-2 heads launch higher/ spin more than the King Ltd. .

You could probably install a Rogue Black untipped in the Cobra
head and still get lower launch / less spin than the Rogue tipped
an inch installed in the D-2 Titleist heads.

That is true but I like the tighter feel and dispersion

Well it happened again!!!!! Brand new uncut Rogue 80X and a brand new Cobra LTD adapter straight from Cobra! Second hole, yes the second hole I used it on, boom there goes the head! No idea what is going on! I put the head back in headcover and didn't even look at it much. Hope it isnt damaged! I was disgusted! I am tired of this! See photos. Ball was hit on both shots in middle of face so nothing off the hosel or anything like that, that might cause this issue. On a side note i have been using a black tie i got the driver with (stock shaft) but it is a little light and whippy but 3 rounds or so with it and no issues at all! I think this shaft is cursed in the ltd!

That shaft doesn't appear to be broken, just looks like the epoxy came loose.

Man, you are snake bitten! This is a strange saga. I have an LTD driver, and I've done mass swapping of shafts and adapters. I know the current shaft I am playing was pulled from another driver, then put into a Cobra adapter and used, then pulled the adaptor off and played in another shaft, and I recently swapped the adapter back to the first shaft. I have two other shafts on Cobra adapters that have been pulled at least twice. I haven't had any issues with any of them.

Correct I'm having it redone by a different place and head is fine. No idea how honestly

I had a titleist pulled tour green in my fly z I got off of WRX that split at the range prior to a round and after using it for 9 holes. Thankfully I didn't pay much for it (still pissed I lost money) I've had two other shafts in it that haven't had any issues both were off of cobras pulls though a red tie from an f6 and the stock rogue black from an ltd.

I have had this happen with a new shaft and a new adapter twice now and both were with Callaway heads and adapters for me. The issue both times was inadequate tip and adapter prep. Both parts need to be sanded and roughed up very well in order for the epoxy to create a very reliable bond.  Not sure if that is what you are experiencing but like I said, I had this happen two times myself. Also just to be clear each time the installation was done at a reliable facility but what they thought was enough prep turned out to be insufficient.

Yeah this tip that came off looked like bad prep to me honestly. Shouldn't the shaft be all black??? White paint still on it probably caused it to not adhere properly

It is prepped poorly...but it shouldn't cause the head to fly off...the prep isn't that bad. Now, if someone prepped the tip like that, I can only imagine what the adapter hosel looked like...

I have a question for all those that have used Cobra OEM adapters (and done the reshafting work themselves):  Is the top of the adapter countersunk to provide an epoxy cushion?  Cobra's site only offers a side view of the Myfly 8.  I bought a couple of Chinese cheapies off the Bay, and while the adapter is all metal and looks the same, the top has no chamfering whatsoever.  I used one with an old PL Blue shaft that has been pulled a few times and certainly wasn't mint by any means, but was still solid (so I thought).  

After another really inconsistent day with the F6 today, I took a closer look at the shaft tonight, there was an almost perfect circle cut into the shaft tip at the top of the adapter- totally shot.  Pulling the adapter confirmed my suspicion that it had cut through the first few graphite plies and ruined the shaft.  Are the real Cobra adapters countersunk, and if not, how do they protect the shaft tip?

Thanks in advance!
