The term is often used in conjunction with another word, such as bore-through hosel or bore-through shaft, but the meanings are the same.
What's the point of a bore-through design? It does save some weight compared to a traditional hosel, lowers the center of gravity, and some believe it provides a firmer feel. However, it can also lower launch angle and make a shaft play stiffer, depending on the type of shaft chosen. Also, bore-through clubs are difficult to re-shaft and cannot have their lie angle adjusted.
