Title says it all.  I've been playing for years & have never broken a shaft.  In the last 2 months I've  had 2 TFC Tour Stiff stock shafts break at the hosel on G25 Driver.  Ping replaced the whole driver the first time & just the shaft the second time.   So, anyone else have this issue?  Oh, and by the way, both rounds I was playing great when they broke, so I wasn't abusing them or anything like that.  Thanks in advance.

Haven't had a problem with G25 drivers, but the G15 and G20 are the drivers we have had the most returns for repair.

Heaps of shafts snapped at the hosel, no caved heads or anything else just shafts disintegrating.

Just had a Motor e speeder vc 6.2 break at the tip of the adapter on my Anser driver. Loved that shaft now its gonna go in one of my 3 woods.

Edit: the shaft I had that broke was installed in a G25 adapter, not one that came with the Anser, FWIW.

I play the TFC Tour Xstiff in my driver and no issues so far. I also have an Ahina, Tour AD-di, Attus 4U and a pink Bubba shaft.  My favourite happens to be the TFC so I hope nothing happens to it!

Not sure if its the adapter or the shaft, but to never have had a shaft break, ever, and then 2 break in the exact same club, in the exact same spot, in a 2-3 month span just raises some questions for me.  Been hitting the 913 w/ a Phenom & it feels beefier, more sturdy than the TFC Tour, but I've certainly played flimsier shafts too w/ no issue.  Honestly, Ping is one of the few OEMs that I will play right off the rack because their TFC shafts are always pretty nice.  I'm baffled.

I had this happen not too long ago.  Ping only replaced the shaft but did allow me to go from s to tour s.  It does to be a pretty common problem.
