This question is for golfers who bring their clubs to a clubmaker or a proShop to get it reshafted......

To reshaft it is generally $15-$20 per club, not including the shaft. I would highly recommend just buying some epoxy, and either educate yourself by watching some youtube videos on how to reshaft, or just broswe through this forum, its been explained several times. It also depends highly on whether its a steel or graphite shaft. Steel being easier.

Usually in my area (honolulu), it's $10 to reshaft a club + cost of the grip if you want them to put a grip on it.  I think one shop charged $15 grip included.  Too bad they didn't carry Iomics.

I don't have the space nor the tools to do it... Thanks!

The only tools you need to reshaft steel is a butane/propane torch or a heat gun, epoxy and sand drill bit. Total cost for supplies being about the price of 1.5 clubs by me. I reshafted some steel irons on my front lawn while I sat on the door step. Not hard and no space required.

I brought all my stuff to one guy for a couple years. He charged 35 for a pull/install and trimming for a graphite driver (perfect installation and pull so I would pay him that much) and about 15 for steel iron.

Actually, you don't even need a heat torch. I have used a hair dryer before, haha. If you just put the hair dryer on hi heat and let it sit for like 5 minutes it will loosen the epoxy enough. Thats always a good lesson for people who leave their clubs in the trunk of their car..

Pull and replace shaft includes labor, ferrule and grip installation...cost of shaft and grip is not included.

Steel $15.00
Graphite $20.00
Graphite Bore Thru $25.00

Given these prices you can see why most do their own.

Kinda Pricey in your area....  My local clubmaker only charge more for Bore Through and Callaway clubs.

My club guy charges $15.00 for a graphite wood resahft.  This includes spine alignment and grip.  I prefer him to do it because I'm usually dealing with expensive shaft and heads and like the idea of the club being properly spined.  I know how to reshaft but don't have the equipment at my house.

My local shop charges $12 for steel and $20 for graphite re-shafting. One of these days I'm going to learn to do it on my own!

To resurrect for just a second -- when is it not worth it to resaft?  If it's 15 bucks, plus price of shaft and maybe grip, we're talking up to $35 or $40 dollars apiece (is that correct?).  If you have 7-8 irons t say, $35.00 each, that's about $360.00 for reshafting an old set of irons.  When is it worth it to just sell the old ones and by a new set? Many irons are now sold with a choice of shafts.

Just wondering because I am thinking about reshafting my I15's with some KBS's, and I wonder if it would be better to jsut sell 'em and get another set with my shaft preference. I I can get a good price for mine (and Ebay indicates I can), then it may be worth it to go tat route.



Thoughts?

Okay, so that's $20 bucks, plus the $20.00 or so for a KBS shaft, right? So isn't that around $320.00 total? So if I sold my I15's for say, $550.00, then ordered a new set for $750 or so, I'd be out $200.00.  If I bought shafts myself, I'd pay around $200.00, then the cost of trimming and epoxy glue (I'd do that myself).  Re-use my existing Ping grips.

Does this make sense?  I know how to trim/prep/install, I used to build knock-offs back in the 80's myself using the Golfsmith clubmaking bible.

About $20.  They give me the pull back and I do the regripping myself.
