Callaway Iron Reshaft

I have a set of Callaway X Hot Pro irons with Project X 5.5 shafts. I would like to get them reshafted with a lighter shat & have been reviewing the True Temper X95 S shaft or the GS95 S. Is this possible & what is the tip diameter I need?

It is possible. The Pro irons are .355″ taper.

Bending Mizuno Irons

Hi, I would like to know if a clubmaker can change the lie of my Mixuno JPX 800 hybrids 2° flat. Thanks a lot for your answer. Best regards.

The JPX will be difficult to bend; getting two degrees might be tough.

Clubmaking as a Business

Hello, I’m an avid golfer wanting to enter into the business of clubfitting/clubmaking. I would like to have some advice on the best book on the market that treats the topic: the first machines to be purchased, their cost and the tools needed? What is the space that asks for the lab? Such as courses or certificates needed to start? Kind regards.
Alessio, Dimaro, Trento, Italy


This is a nearly impossible question to answer. The best way is to get the clubmaking book from Jeff Summit at and the fitting book from Tom Wishon at These will give you some ideas. You might also want to check out for tools. Basically, you can go as small as part of a room or as big as a store front. Mitchell Golf and Golfworks offer classes. Jim at Golfworks is as good as it gets as an instructor.

Hope this helps.

Flighted vs. Nonflighted Shafts

Whats the difference between flighted and non flighted Project x shafts?
Steve, Vero Beach, Florida, USA


Flights shafts have as a design goal a similar maximum height fir all clubs. That is, wedges will tend to fly lower and long irons higher. Non flightless shafts typically have wedge species higher and long irons lower.
