    What are you building? (Club style)

    As I sit here working on my gear, I'm sure other THPers are doing the same (or often work on clubs).

    So I ask, what are you building today? I'm reshafting some J40 DPCs with DG S300 shafts.

    Going to be a mix of ferrules for this one. Not enough of either to run throughout the set and I don't have the patience to wait for a purchase to ship haha!!

    Taking my Spider Si up from 35" to 36.5".

    Only thing stopping me is the weight of the grip that makes it so fantastic.

    Count me in the group that just doesn't have the nerve to jump into reshafting just yet. I've started regripping, but with undersize grips, I never seem to get the butt of the grip flush with the end of the shaft (using air and the Pure grip gun, no issues with tape & solvent, but I prefer air). Once I perfect that...maybe MAYBE I'll give reshafting a go.

    It really is quite simple huh? Swap the chop saw for the dremel and you have my setup basically. Once you start you can't stop and it's fun to toy with things without paying the $20 at a shop

    Only thing that's missing is the Matrix Programs and you will have the perfect THP iron, like me

    Nah, I'll stick to PING over Mizzy . Plus, been fit to the CTL's so as much as I want to tinker with them (bad) I know that I need to just play what works the best for me. Plus, the i25's are going to be my steady irons, I know other testing and such will come, but I want one solid go-to set and these with the CTL's are them for me. Just need to get the damn lie angles fixed! HA!
