I've a bunch of busted carbon shafts where the tip got pushed into the shaft and flowered it open. I've successfully salvaged broken alloy shafts by simply cutting it off behind the break and hot-melting in a new insert. However, carbon is a different animal and I worry about there being tiny cracks further along the shaft than I can see. Do you guys every try to cut past the flowered tip and glue in a new insert or do you just toss the shaft? If you do cut and salvage, how far past the last bit of visible damage do you cut?
