  1. Just what golf needs, more shaft offerings! TPT, the one Justin Rose is now using, says they're the best. Everyone says they're the best (eye roll).
  2. Interesting... https://mygolfspy.com/mygolfspy-launches-in-japan-and-korea/
  3. I love that one.
  4. Heads only although I had the modus wedge shafts I'm selling, in them before. If you want I can sell you both...

  6. ZY-11 is the lowest spinning/launching head I've ever hit with the TaylorMade SLDR 430 right there with it. I can't imagine anyone needing anything less than a 10.5 loft if they pair it with a mid/low spin/launch shaft. I couldn't even get my 8.5 ZY-11 in the air.
  7. Interesting. I've studied this topic a lot in the last six months. As with most things, there are varying opinions. Most "experts" think there is something to FLO'ing but not much to finding the spine with a spine finder. They say they lie to you. If you do believe in all of this, most "experts" agree that S1 (Spine 1 - stiffest part of the shaft) should face straight up and N1 (neutral 1 - most stable part of the shaft) should face down the target line. N1 and N2 form a 180* line and S1 and S2 form a 180* line through the shaft. It's impossible to have a shaft with an S point and an N point 180* from each other. For me personally, I don't have a frequency machine so I have to rely on FLO'ing by pulling the shaft back and releasing it by hand and I find it very inaccurate. Depending on my pull and release, the shaft can oscillate clockwise or counterclockwise. I do however use a spine finder and to me, I can absolutely feel what part of the shaft has the most resistance and I install the shaft with the stiffest direction facing straight up, to prevent shaft droop coming into impact. Most "experts" say shaft droop will cause more mis**ts that anything else, so it makes sense to have the stiffest part of the shaft pointing up, to counter this. With all this being said, it might be complete nonsense. I just figure if I can do it, and I enjoy it, why not? But with most things in life, to each their own.
  8. Been reading a lot about inserting wooden dowels into the shafts of your clubs to dampen vibrations. It's supposed to soften the feel of the clubs and make contact more solid. Does anything have experience with this? Is it worth it? Thanks!
  9. Best feeling putter I've ever used, by far, was a Bettinardi BB2 DASS with a copper plating and 3 sound slots. I've never rolled anything that felt like that thing. SM490 is also very addicting, especially with the Muziik putter shaft.
  10. Wow! Impressive. So what's your favorite feel metal out of all of these? What's the softest? Hardest?
  11. And for the record, Gold's Factory never milled their own putters, right? They just modified blanks and other company's putters, correct?
  12. Indeed!
  13. Great post. Very interesting. What is the difference between SUS303 or SUS316L? Are these the only metals he uses? Thanks.
  14. I came across a thread about Wood Bros putters and the guy had this to say: Some "Wood Bros Bench Mark 60s putters (5 models) - hand forged by Japanese Samurai sword maker. You can see the layers of metal used to make the heads with very close examination. Like persimmon woods, the edges of the multiple layers are stacked up the face of the putter - creating the strongest head and also best feel. There's a discussion of the Japanese sword maker, Mr. Takagi, now near 100 yrs old and still playing golf, who hand made them on Page 9 of my Wood Bros collection thread. Maybe 20 examples of 5 different styles were made. Most sold in Japan and almost never seen. I've been collecting them for 30 years and have bought every one I've ever found. Dave Wood doesn't even own any. BTW - the putters are grooveless faced - don't need grooves - super soft and instant roll off the face. Anyone ever hear about or try one of these?
  15. Same, M stamp for me. Not a fan of the roadrunner thing.
  16. Wow, this is the best post on here in months! Please elaborate further if you have the time. Specifically how they were able to spine/FLO the shafts as effectively without an SST machine. Great, great post man. Very interesting stuff. Love it.
  17. Ya, who knows. That club builder on GolfWRX, Kwok, uses them with all his builds and people swear by it.
  18. No I don't have any, I just read about some guy who does and said they're incredible putters.
  19. Let's hear it!
