I’m replacing a broken shaft in a Callaway FT-5 driver and am not sure if this is a bore through model or not. What special installation tips will I need to remove/install a new shaft if it is a bore through?
The Callaway FT-5 was not a bore through. If it was, you would see the shaft finished flush with the sole on the heel side of the sole. From the images I have looked at and from what I remember there is not a FT-5 driver that is a bore through. You do have to be careful reshafting the FT-5. A lot of carbon in that head, so heating must be done gradual and slow with a heat gun when removing the shaft. Also, the FT-5 originally took a .350″ tip shaft. Not any of those readily available. So, if you are putting a .335″ shaft in, you will need the BB9002 Callaway shaft adaptor. If you happen to have a .350″ tip shaft that you’re installing, you will need the CSS Callaway shaft adaptor.
