Robert,
On the Callaway FT5 the plastic ferrule is actually a sleeve that goes all the way down into the shaft. There really isn't anyway of pulling a shaft without destroying the plastic ferrule. I recommend taking a wet towel and putting that on the head except by the hossel. Then take a heat gun and apply heat to the face of the club right in front of hossel. Basically your looking to melt the plastic ferrule out of the head. If you have a shaft puller you can also carefully cut away the top of cone part of the plastic ferrule with a knife and then pull the shaft with a shaft puller like normal. Obviously you will have to buy a new sleeve/ferrule. The one I have put in the link below typically works for Drivers like FT5 but you are going to want to measure it and check.
