Ran into a snag last night while trying to pull the shaft from my CF16 AW... That thing is in there! spent a good 20-30 minutes with the heat gun trying to get it out. Will have to go to the torch next...

Have several things on the docket ... waiting for a single ferrule (and a set of graphite shafts) to show up at my door.

1. GBB Divine Nine with UST Mamiya Elements Wind
2. Cobra F6+ adapter with Grafalloy Boost 53 shaft
3. W/S PMP 55 & 59 widesole with DG spinner shafts

Also plan on stamping the wedges. Thinking of Boomer on the 55, and Sooner on the 59, with an interlocking O and U on both.

Well, the hot melt gun came in today.

I'm terrified, and excited.

SO many questions.

How does it look?
Where are you applying the hotmelt?
How much do you end up using to achieve the same results as the lead tape?

Like a stock club. Hahahaha

In the head, all in a neutral location (middle) other than the SZ, in it the 6g to hit my preferred SW went in the heel.

Same weight to weight ratio. Put each club on the SW scale to know where I was and wanted to go, then weighed the head to further know (2g in head = 1 SW point). Add and weight repeatedly to ensure not getting too much.

I did a lot of studying before doing it, and as such I really have to say there is a LARGE potential for a mess if you aren't patient, deliberate, and steady.

What flex are you looking for? I have a Purple Ice TX that is either 85 or 95 gram with TM graphics.

Sooooooooo, hot melt. Love.

Not only are my swing weights on where I want them now, it's made this F7 fairway sound a LOT better to my ear.
