Need help to find shaft diameter of my 3 wood

Silver

I don't have a handicap.

I've googled and can't seem to find it. I'm about ready to replace the shaft in my 3W. I have a Powerbilt TPS 180 15* and for the life of me have not been able to find out what size of shaft goes in there.

If anyone is better at Google than I am or knows another way to find out, I'll be very grateful.

Thanks!

Anything PowerBilt that I can find as far back as 1998 is a .352, which is a .350 replacement. Apparently, it takes standard ferrules too.

I can't say for certain that your fairway carries these measurements, just letting you know what I found.

Sometimes working backwards helps. Lots of places have OEM shaft replacement sheets and your fairway might be listed there. I got most of this info from Golfsmith's site, with a little help from the clubmaker's forum...

I have began to reshaft clubs now and nearly every fairway I have came across is .335 so I'm really just guessing I will have a definite answer for tommorow.

Also I got a little metal plate type thing that measures all tip sizes and my sonartec is .370 my driver is .355 and my 3 wood .335 as are the titleist 980f and most others.

Best I could find was the tip on the TPS 400 driver is a .350.

Not sure about the fairways though.

S,

Don't know if this is the same model as what you are using, but this came from the Golfworks website. It states they are .350 tips, as I said before....

Well, not the same, but I presume they probably used the same diameter. Just to be safe, I'll not rely on TM's assumptions and wait until I get an email back from PB.

Thanks for looking Rock.

TM, you probably should at least say that the .335 is a guess, because if Silver had bought a .335 shaft, you could have really ticked someone off.

I did say it was a guess.

TM, Neal's right. If no one else had said anything AFTER you posted that and I had relied on it, I would have been pretty pissed if you were wrong.

But...it's not worth fighting about because you admitted it was a guess, so let's just drop it.

were you planning on adding 'my guess to that' BEFORE you were called out?


About 5 minutes after I didn't think he would get the shaft that quick, sorry for my instint guess it will not happen again.
