We designed the ferrule and the three step-downs in one part; we have incorporated Our Patented Perforated Sleeve Technology # 6,887,163 that makes it a breeze do. Also we use the same Thermal Plastic material that’s used on the original, which doesn’t change the feel of the club. This is very important, because this is a damping and protection system to the club and it keeps the feel consistent. Beware of cheap plastic adaptors that can split during installation and they won’t give you the same feel when striking the ball. When you try them you will see that they turn that frustrating job into a simple one and they fit the Taylor SERIES 5 Drivers and Fairway Woods With the exception of XD’s they take a regular 1/2″ Collared ferrule.
We at Billy Bob’s Golf have always agreed that using a .335 shaft tip is better, that’s why most of the Pros and the Long Drive Hitters use .335 shafts.
Please Note* You cannot turn down the Series 5 ferrules and shine it up with acetone.
