What is parallel tip?
Parallel-tip shafts are the same, within the model type, for each iron but are trimmed to fit the length for each club. As a result, parallel-tip shafts are heavier in the longer irons and weigh less in the shorter irons.
Are all .370 shafts parallel?
370 hosel is a parallel tip hosel. The only difference between the two is tip diameter and weight. Taper tipped shafts are a constant weight throughout the irons and the parallel tipped shafts are a decending weight.
Are Callaway irons taper tip?
Callaway’s hosels are slightly tapered so that when the shaft is inserted it pinches in the split shaft and forms a pseudo-mechanical lock.
What tip size are Pxg irons?
355 tip diameter. The PXG irons have a . 370 hosel.
What are parallel shafts?
Parallel shaft gear motors are a type of gear motor which uses gears to accomplish the speed reduction. They are called “parallel shaft” since the motor shaft and the speed reducer shaft are on parallel planes.
Are Pxg irons taper or parallel?
|Ferrule I.D||.355 Taper Tip, .370 Parallel Tip|
What tip size are Taylormade irons?

Are Pxg irons parallel or taper?
Which PXG shaft is best?
NS Pro 950 is a top performer amongst lightweight steel shafts year after year on the LPGA and Champions Tour. The lightweight design promotes more spin and a higher launch with very high stability for such a light shaft.
What gear is used for parallel shafts?
Spur Gear. Spur gears transmit power through shafts that are parallel. The teeth of the spur gears are parallel to the shaft axis.
What does the M mean on a TaylorMade shaft?
“A” or “M” denotes “senior flex” (might also be designated “AM” or “A/M,” or “Senior”) “R” denotes “regular flex” “S” denotes “stiff flex” (might also be designated “Firm”) “X” denotes “extra stiff flex” (might also be designated “Tour”)

Are PXG irons taper or parallel?
Should a beginner golfer use a stiff shaft?
With the proper fit, the new golfer can learn without making compensations for clubs that are too stiff or too flexible. In general, the faster a golfer’s swing speed the stiffer a golf shaft should be in order to provide more control over the ball’s flight.
What’s the difference between a taper tip and a parallel tip?
Taper tip shafts are made specifically for each club in a set. They are manufactured to “constant weights” which means that a three iron shaft weighs the same as a nine iron shaft. Tour pros think that this is desirable. On the side of parallel tips you have every golf equipment manufacturer and anyone who plays graphite.
Do True Temper taper tip shafts and parallel tipped shafts play similarly?
A: The answer is yes. True Temper taper tipped shafts and parallel tipped shafts do play similar to one another. The only difference between the two is tip diameter and weight. True Temper taper tip shafts are constant weight, meaning that each shaft weighs the same from 1 iron to wedges, and parallel are descending weight.
What is a taper tip shaft?
Taper tip shafts are made specifically for each club in a set. They are manufactured to “constant weights” which means that a three iron shaft weighs the same as a nine iron shaft. Tour pros think that this is desirable.
What is the standard tip diameter for a taper tip iron?
