That could just be KBS for you. Had 400 of their shafts the other day at work that were supposed to be taper tip, but were .359 instead.

Yes the hosels on those Idea Pro Gold's are .370.

well that sucks...i was only dry fitting the first time, but i'm guessing even after i rough the tip and take of the chrome shine, it still won't fit?

I would contact KBS and see what the deal is. Is the shaft new and uncut?

Is it tight or loose? I sure you have already checked this, but are sure all the old epoxy is out of the bore. I've had some Adams heads that epoxy is darn hard to get out. You might all so check the head with a .370 reamer.

If you have access to a pair of micrometer's check the tip size or take it down to an auto parts store and see if you can borrow a pair.

great bookmark, but i don't see that hybrid on there...ANYHOO...just pulled my vokey stock shafts and put in some DG Spinners...the old Vokey shafts are .355 for sure and they fit like a glove...i'm thinking its a .355 hosel

Think Frank at Ace might know being an adams dealer?

They are .370 hosel, just like about every other Adams hybrid if not all. Ive reshafted many.
Im guessing the hosel still has something in it towards the bottom if a .355 tip is fitting snug.
