That ferrule material is soft and cuts easy.
Doesn't surprise me at all.
Someone probably used a pencil sharpener to trim the edges

Make sure you check your references before you buy on this site. Even a mod here engages in bad business!

2 years ago at my yearly tournament gig,a customer brings me a shaft just like this.

The ferrule was cracked,but not length wise,because when I took the first cut on it,it came right off about like the pic shown here,with a .005 deep cut.

He said he broke with it regularly. I asked him if he wanted something tougher than that,even though it might change the hit to an extent,and he agreed so I made the new ferrule from Schmelke LBM.

No news is good news so far . Tommy D.

Another WTF.
Maple tenon is .340.
Then there's some really nasty wood sleeve on the smaller tenon up front.
I have no idea yet if it came from the McDermott factory that way or someone worked on it.

That's from McDermott Joey, I've seen the same thing on their shafts. Not sure what they are trying to accomplish with that setup.

Low deflection by using that lightweight and soft wood.
It is not hollowed at the end.

I agree that's what they are trying to do, but the amount of maple they are removing for this other wood, I don't believe it's enough to make a noticeable difference.
