by Evan Roufeh
Learning how to build golf clubs a little bit tough to do
at first, but with some time and effort it will save you money,
allow you to customize your clubs and gives you a great deal
Just make sure that you follow all of the steps the first
time around, and then you can experiment once you get more
confident in how to build golf clubs.
How to Build Golf Clubs Step 1 - Find a catalogue that has
shafts, grips, heads and adhesives in order to determine what
combinations you like. Make sure you research your items and
work within your budget. Step-by-step instructions generally
come with the purchased product.
How to Build Golf Clubs Step 2 - Trim the shaft. You will
need a true measure rule, which costs approximately $25, in
order to measure the cut accurately. Mark the spot where the
trim will go with a felt-tip pen so you know where the cut
needs to be made.
How to Build Golf Clubs Step 3 - Cut the shaft using a shaft
cutter or a hacksaw. If you are using a metal shaft, you are
better off using a shaft cutter, which can be found anywhere
golf supplies are sold for about $10.
After cutting the shaft, remove any masking tape before
continuing with the next step. This portion of how to build
golf clubs is the most difficult and most important.
How to Build Golf Clubs Step 4 - The shaft of the club is
a smooth surface and in order for it to fit and properly adhere
to the club, you will need to rough the edge. This is done
by sanding the paint and finish using medium grade sandpaper.
Apply the adhesive. Make sure you follow the adhesive instructions
to make sure mix amount is correct.
How to Build Golf Clubs Step 5 - Time for you to apply the
grip. Once the adhesive is completely dry you can measure
the club for the final fitting. Mark the butt end of the shaft
in the same manner used for the club head and trim it using
the same tools. Prepare the shaft with tape then add the solvent
that came with the grip before sliding on the grip carefully.
Ensure the grip is on straight then attach the butt cap. Now
all that is left is drying time and you will be able to use
your new club.
How to Build Golf Clubs Step 6 - Stand up and take a bow.
Feel good about yourself. You have successfully built your
own golf clubs.
Experiment with different combinations of tools and materials
to get the club that fits you and your golfing style the best.
Just make sure that you always have fun with it!
