The shaft is installed on my Metal X Milled project. It started as a "like new" MXM1 putter from CPO still in the shrink wrap. Then I ordered a black matte rifle putter shaft. Now i just need to cut to length and grip.

Can't go wrong with the AMTs, really like how the shaft feels.

It's been working pretty well. I'm making a few mods to it today. The slot in the steel was a little too tight. I made it .375. I think .410 or .420 would have been a little better. I'll try to post a few more pictures to show how I made it.

What are you building? (Club style)

For those experienced club builders; is it best to cut the shaft to length before installing into the head? I was thinking I'd measure the old shafts I pulled, mark the new shafts at the same length, then dry fit them into the head and check the length at the mark. Next I would cut the shaft at the mark (my new shafts are AMTs so butt trim only) install the grips and then do another dry fit with the head to check swing weight. If the swing weights good then they would be final assembled. Has anybody done it this way?

I always dry build, put in heads and measure, butt trim, then install grips. Then I dry build and check swing weight. Then epoxy

Gorgeous. So now for the important question...how much do you want for it?
$1,000,000.

Thanks. It's a beauty.

I 'm in the process (thanks to the incredible generosity of UST Mamiya) of obtaining a Great Big Bertha Head and having my new Elements Helium shaft installed. So anxious to try this combination I can't express it!! Thanks again Danny!!!!

Just built a 44" driver, because, well because it sounded interesting.

Also reshafted my #1 bags 3w for him and tipped a heavier and stronger flex driver shaft for him.

F6+ @ 12* w/ 72X Miyazaki White at 44" and some lead tape to get it to D3.

Sets up like a delightful little Sledgehammer.

For those of you that have a shaft puller for graphite shafts, I'm looking at getting one and would like to know what you are using and how you like it.

Getting tired of having someone else screw up my shafts and want to have it done right by me from now on.

I have this one and love it.

http://www.golfworks.com/maltby-des...or/p/GW1009/?gclid=CJ_CiPX-qs4CFQcoaQodFZYD4Q

However when I bought it the shaft pads were missing and golf works insisted they were nit included. It turns out they were missing and are included. Fortunately the golf galaxy near my dad had a couple of extra pads so they let me have them.

The puller is awesome as its spring loaded. I don't worry about overheating as the shaft "pops" out when the epoxy starts to break down.

Most will tell you Roberts, but they have been few and far between as far as finding one goes the past few months. My old puller died and I got tired of waiting so I went with this one:

Its really freaking good, incredibly sturdy, can be mounted or operated as is.
