Hi All:

I have Ping Glide wedges that I want to reshaft.  I went to the Ping website and got the specs on the tip diameter (.335).  On the chart was also a field called  Replacement Shaft/MPF Code.  The code is 4B1H.  Googled that and got to the Maltby MPF Shaft Ratings page.  I entered the 4B1H code and got a list of shafts.

My question:  Are the shafts listed the ONLY shafts I can put into the Ping Glide wedge heads (assuming the list is comprehensive)?  If so, is it because these shafts are the correct tip diameter?

Have changed plenty of grips but am new to reshafting and I'm down a rabbit hole of data and advice but I want to get it all right before I make that first cut.

Thanks for any help.

Throw any .355 tip diameter shaft in there you'd like, you are not limited to the shafts on that list.

You will however need the Ping Glide specific collared ferrules - https://www.golfwork...rrule/p/PGC003/

Those will help in making sure the shaft goes in straight a snug. It's a pretty significant collar and using a standard ferrule could set yourself up for an imperfect install and failure down the line. Plus the diameter of the ferrule matches the diameter of the Glide hosel almost perfectly making it basically optional to turn down the ferrule.

No it's not the ONLY options for reshafting.   It's supposed to be a list of shafts with similar characteristics to the original stock shaft - although it's very arguable how accurate that similarity will be.  I can't say for sure but I don't think the MPF rating actually considers tip size, I think you still have to pay attention to that even with the recommendations.

Any steel shaft with .355 tip can be used w/o needing to modify the hosel.   And if you are willing to have the hosel bored out, any .370 parallel tip shaft can be used.  For graphite shafts, pretty much any irons shaft (.355 or .370) could be used.

The correct tip size should be .355, not .335 (normally used in woods).

You should be able to use any .355 shaft you desire in the Glide wedges.

A standard ferrule along with a strip of fiberglass drywall tape can be used instead of a collared ferrule.  Cut the tape into a strip about .75cm wide and wrap it around the shaft about 3X just below the ferrule.  Before assembly be sure to apply epoxy on the tape and work it through the mesh as much as possible.  Also, realize that the shaft won't go to the bottom of the hosel unless you drive it to the bottom forcefully.  Failing to do this will result in short shafting the club with a space under the shaft instead of going all the way down.

Good luck

Great advice everyone, thanks.  But it leads me to my next question:

Do I need a ferrule at all?  Reason I ask...I'm in Europe and Golf Works will charge me around $30 to ship a $6 item.  Not sure I can get the Ping ferrules here though I'll look.  Do I absolutely need them?

Thanks.

Yes, Hot Rod, .355, not .335.  Thanks.

Yes, you'll need a ferrule. There is a recessed portion in the top 1/3 of the hosel where the collared portion of the ferrule sits. With no ferruled collar that portion of the hosel won't be contacting anything at all.

If you follow the directions Nessism gave above (post 5), you don't really need a ferrule - it's just cosmetic.

But I'd say start a new thread with a title asking for European sources for ferrules - you shouldn't have to go all the way to the US to order one.

Stuart G, thank you.  Very good suggestion.

I did find this:  https://www.nordicagolf.com/ferrule-for-ping-irons-0355-4-pack-black

on a UK website.  It doesn't say it's specific to the Glide wedges but it does seem to have the right spec.  I wrote to Ping just to make sure they'd work.

Not sure if it does but it tells you the weight of the shaft and tip size:

Hi Curious:  Good find!  With shipping they come out to 2X the price of the ones at Nordica Golf so if Ping says those are OK I'll go with those.  If not then the Ebay ones.  Thanks!  And, yes, that's the same pdf file I got my info from.

They look to be the Anser/i25/S55 ferrules. The collar will fit in the hosel but the outside diameter of the ferrule will not cover the entire diameter of the hosel and it will look a little off. Not terrible but certainly won't look stock.
