  1. Quick update, driver turned out amazing! I'm playing it for the first time this wknd I will snap a few pics to show the final product.
  2. Quick question for anyone who has done work on this model. If I would like to reshaft this driver do I need to remove he entire sleeve or is it possible to pull shaft only? If I do indeed need to remove entirely any suggestions for best results? Thanks, BB
  3. Quick update picked up a brand new Kuro and we where able to easily step drill the hossle out. It was really very simple with little to no heat. We used a small drill bit and continued to increase size until able to clean up the inner walls of the sleeve. Turned out perfect without any stress or a mark on the original sleeve. The only downside is you cut off and sacrifice the current shaft. For me didn't matter the stock shaft was to light, soft and had to go anyway. My advice go very slow and take your time the key is generating very low heat so epoxied sleeve stays safe and fully intact.
  4. The screw extractor is a great idea thanks! I will would feel much more comfortable removing and replacing properly. Not a big fan of taking risks with my equipment!
  5. If I may ask what is the head volume of the Onoff? Thanks, BB
  6. One thing I would consider doing would be to cut the old shaft off and step drill out the sleeve. We did this a lot on the old Titleist 905r drivers. They also had this type of sleeve inserted into the head.
  7. That's what I would assume! I would never NOT pull this sleeve. BB
  8. Thanks, yes I will have a master club builder do the work. There is a sleeve that I assume is epoxied into the actual head. Inside that sleeve the shaft then is expoxed. Will I need to remove this entire unit? I believe you are saying the shaft can be pulled without compete unit removal correct? Meaning in your picture it would be the silver part. Did he remove that? Thanks, BB
  9. Wondering what the playing characteristics of this head are? Thanks, BB
  10. Miura MC-501 / IC-601 / MG-S01 Tour

    I understand the reason for designing a MB such as this but I agree with Chris it's mostly window dressing. The feel can and usually will change with designs such as this one. My guess this will feel more like a players CB than a transitional forged MB. BB
  11. SEVEN X SHINAGAWA BLADE!

    I've have been a lurker for over a year just can't stop coming back to these. If anyone would be interested in posting a topline pic of the PW it would be appreciated. I WILL have these in my bag for the start of my 2018 season in Ohio. Just a goregoeus classic iron style! BB
  12. Any interest in a trade for a set of Japan only Mizuno MP66 heads only. 4-PW, very good condition. Send me a PM if you have any questions. BB
  13. So I couldn't look at it anymore decided to buy a Proto hybrid head. To me it looks perfect, so excited. Does anyone have any experience with it so far? what's the hossel diameter? Thanks...BB
  14. A-Grind Proto Hybrid

    So 9.45mm is roughly .372 inches. I'm guessing .370 tip diameter is correct. Thanks, BB
  15. A-Grind Proto Hybrid

    Chris would you confirm the tip diameter please, thanks. BB
  16. A-Grind Proto Hybrid

    Awesome! I will absolutely do a search, thanks.
  17. So I'm guessing they are the same to a degree. I understand that JSpec typically uses millimeters vs US inches. Easy enough to Google the conversion however I do the math on sets with "face progression" and it just seems so high when compared to standard offset. Is there something I'm missing here?? Thanks...BB
  18. So the numbers are not one in the same? Meaning offset specifications are not interchangable with face progression specs? Thanks
  19. in my experience with tons of different models of graphite and dual composite iron shafts lighter can "feel" softer in flex. That can be a problem because more often than not (Steelfibers in particular) graphite iron shafts actually play stiff to flex. When iron shafts are too stiff forgiveness and consistency suffer and most confuse what's actually happening and think these shafts are too soft or whippie. It can be very misleading when you venture down this course with lighter "overall" club weights. I first experienced this phenomenon with a set of Recoils I thought man these things are soft when in reality they where extremely stable. Some compound this mistake and actually going up in shaft weight hence stiffing them even more! My experience once a graphite shaft weighs in over 100gr's it becomes very dull or even downright harsh. Once you figure it out however the rewards are amazing, I'm enjoying wonderful balance between feel and control all while benefiting from far less trauma to my joints. I've found my sweet spot is 95gr models but it did take some adjusting to the overall feel of less total club weight. Hope this makes sense...BB
  20. Those are amazing looking irons on my short list in 2016...BB
  21. No sweat, good luck with sale! Happy Holidays
  22. By the way I have no idea why I can't click on your profile and send a PM, strange. BB
  23. Any interest in a VERY cool trade. I have a rare Ping WRX department 33' Anser 2 milled putter with factory custom milled face weights and sound slot. It's brand new with red leather Gripmaster grip. Cost new was $640 US. I would like to have the shafts for a new build, straight trade we ship same day. PM me for pictures if interested, amazingly gorgeous putter.
  24. I've always wanted one of these and the simple glued in shaft design of the new model continues my interest. My question is what's the actual face angle, I'm guessing .5 closed which is deal breaker but if it's square I'm buying one...BB
  25. Yamaha 2016 Irons & Wedge

    I'm surprised by these comments, I freaking love my 2015 RMX Tour model irons and the fit and finish is perfect. I want the new wedges badly but no 60 or 54 degree is killing me...BB
