Has anyone had any success doing extensions on junior clubs? Currently using Flynn Irons with Flynn shafts and wondering if anyone has ever used extensions or any other hacks to get extensions to work? Thanks.

I have used extensions in metal woods.  They worked fine.  I wouldn't use them in steel irons, but I suppose you could.

still using graphite in the irons.  I was told before can't remember the source now that extensions wouldn't work b/c its too narrow.

That can be true in junior clubs.  Cut down a JetSpeed driver a couple of years ago.  Had an extension put in and it became loose after about a month.  Took it back and he just loaded it with more epoxy to get it to stay and it worked fine.

The other thing you have to watch out for is adding an extension that is too long.  It can change the dynamics of the shaft and make it too whippy.

When we bought our set of Mike Flynn's a couple years ago I asked Mike about it and that's what he said.  The shafts were too narrow for extensions.  I don't know if anything has changed since then, but that was his answer.

I would assume you are only lengthening the shafts a few inches at most. If standard extensions are too big you can use any old iron shaft you can dig up. Cut them up and epoxy. Almost everyone has some trash clubs laying around.

I have used wooden dowels as extensions in my son's clubs numerous times.  I use a dowel that almost fits into the butt of the shaft. Then sand or shave off a enough so that 1" of the dowel will fit snugly into the shaft.  After the epoxy dries, trim the dowel to the desired length. The dowel will be a smaller diameter then the outside diameter of the shaft.  I just use masking tape to wrap around the dowel to build it up to the same diameter as the shaft.  Then install the grip. Super easy.
