I fixed a couple ferrules that had "creeped" today on a couple Hogan irons.

Couple questions:
- Do you guys fine Hogan's tend to creep more than any other brand?
- I heated the ferrule, used a pair a pliers that I had sanded to remove the teeth and twisted the ferrule back in place. Then finished the ferrule. Do you guys do it any differently?

Hogans did creep, MacGregors too.

I have a Callaway Rzr Hawk Tour Driver that is actually collared and I have epoxied it in place twice and it still won't stay put.

I've used the same method but I have an old piece of grip that I use to twist the ferrule back into place. I hit it briefly with a bit of heat if necessay to expand it, but often the grip piece is all that I need.

I have seen a few in my time, only one or two in my bag, but nothing currently.

It doesn't matter all that much though as the ferrule is mainly for cosmetics. (I will agree that it can add a small percentage of strength to the hosel/shaft joint)

I had the .335 ferrule on my driver split open and then it started to creep. Last weekend I took it off, took a .350 ferrule and sliced it open, put some epoxy where I sliced it and around the top of the hosel. I put it in a vise and clamped around the ferrule to close it up. Came out great...

Turned the ferrule down and shined it up. Split is now along the backside but you'd never notice it. The head called for a .335 but I couldn't do it this way with a .335, don't think it would have held.

I do the same, but add a little bit of epoxy before I slide the ferrule back down and then wipe it clean. Some of the ones I have repaired slid down easily without pliers when heated.

Funny end to MY story... today the head came off while I was in a scramble.

Ferrule stayed in place.
