I always drag the tip of the bore through plug through epoxy before installing it into the tip of the shaft and have had not problems. I also use epoxy to fill the hole. Once the shaft tip is cut for the angle put some epoxy into the tip of the shaft and put a piece of masking tape over the shaft tip. Place the club in the playing position. This will allow the epoxy to settle against the masking tape and harden into a plug. When the epoxy has cured remove the tape and do any finishing that is needed.
