Here's a do-it-yourself work around to fit standard .335 tip wood shafts on special tip size OEM clubs (Orlimar, Hawkeye, etc.) Thanks to Tom Flanagan for the tip!

You can make a "spring shim" by winding small gauge copper wire around the
tip. Make sure you sand off the clearcoat found on a lot of bare wire. The
wire can be stranded or solid. Either works. Hosel adapters work O.K. but
don't always fit. You have to sand them down. A pain in the butt if you
don't have a belt sander. You can also use monofiliament fish line wrapped
around the tip, too. There are many different sizes available or you can
double wrap thinner line. And, make a shim with fiberglass window screen.
Put plenty of epoxy on the tip, wrap the screen (after dry fitting) firmly
around the tip, put more epoxy into the screen - force it in, and "screw"
the tip into the hosel. Drywall mesh works as well. Don't forget the
ferrule. You may have to use an iron ferrule to match the O.D. of the hosel.
You can fill the top of the ferrule with a flanged "o ring" and wipe with
acetone to blend in the seam.

Never had any of these methods fail. I did a Taylor Made Firesole driver, 3
and 5 wood with the window screen method last week. Piece a cake.
