  1. Not to beat a dead horse but wack wack wack.. First - if at all possible shaft tip to match hosel diameter. second - yes it can be done "carefully" what is mentioned above is the shafts the are typically made in specific lengths and are .370 will have a bit more meat on the end and can be sanded. others with longer .370 tip sections can thin out as tipped up the shaft. How much? Each maker varies. Keeping in mind the first 3/8" to 1/2" is wear most of the sanding will occur to make it fit. When doing this and using graphite please consider if your brother chops wood or can get through the ball. If he take a divot te size of Rhode Island you will back to the bench reworking clubs.
  2. 100 percent if the golfer wants it on another shaft. There are times I will remove an adapter from two different shafts and different adapters to get the combination the golfer wants
  3. Exploring and committing are 2 very separate things. When fitting (successfully) one length irons the golfer needs to be committed to the idea. I say this because golfers as a whole are incredibly traditional. Even the folks I have fitted when swing the 5 iron still had it their head it was shorter and added oomph was need to make the ball go. That f course was a flop. Then we talked about the concept of one length one swing one effort and all is good. for the most part the golfers did very well. However, those that had a less than positive round could never get past the one length concept and used went back to what they were used to. When we fit one I give them a test to see if they can generate a given separation between our two clubs. If they cannot then we discuss other options. All that said if you are in the committed category then fitting to the seven is not an issue. it is a great idea. it just takes getting used too.
  4. If you are doing this as a hobby and for the love of it you may want to consider other company, Mitchell is a top notch consideration but a golf mechanix, golf works model might be better suited to your needs. I would also consider a double end motor and put a few different wheels on it for finishing or a frequency machine
  5. using the butane torch about 20 sec on three sides. Give it s a few seconds and repeat then try to twist off. sometimes the taper tips can be logged in the hosel. Makes for a secure fit but a real pain to remove. if they are 370s. and you glues the ferrule in also and have not moved it first it could be an anchor to removing the head.
  6. I would consider a graphite wedge shaft. Such as ACCRAs spt that comes in 95 and 125 g models
  7. Is a book recently release by the Golfworks. It chronicles Mr. Ralph Maltby and his career through the golf industry and some of his personal life. Leading to the Golfworks and work they have done since their inception. I live about an hour and a half from the Golfworks and made some great friends there, attended courses and met Mr. Maltby on several occasions. Its neat to read about A time in Golfworks history that I know. If you are golf history nut. This one will need to be in the book case. below is a link to the book. I don't get a thing from this , Just enjoyed the read. golfworks book
  8. I have 2 citizen eco drives and a citizen that is my work watch but none of them are worn on the course. Much like no wallet, keys etc., just a tee and a ball marker
  9. I also found CAPTO, a putter device for instructor and fitters. The information provided is massive. Im working on the level 2 cert to get and idea of how the trembling info factors in. JB the coach is a treat to talk to
  10. to show you how cold it was and some things at the demo day,,,,,
  11. that would probably work except I do the lefty stuff. A young man newly excepted to a PGM program that we deal with was waiting for me to regrip. She took over and I went into a fitting. everybody's happy. lol
  12. Im a solvent guy and so is the wife, no kidding she puts on more grips than I do.
  13. My favorite thing at the show was the scotch and beer glasses made by BenShot. They are a father and son team that works with Veteran in Wisconsin making well uh glasses with golf balls in the side. They work well. I tested one with some Glennfidtch 14 and the golf ball never got in the way. hmmm.
  14. A wedge fitting much like putter fittings are not as main stream as the full swing fitting but are just as important. I would think that as many if not more strokes can be found after these fittings. Bounce, loft, grind, length, shaft weight, grip all need to be considered. tony@CIC don't leave out Wilson to go with your C300s the new forged wedge does come in a 60 and looks pretty nice.
  15. Golf in the right side of the ball. This will be a series of videos building my set
  16. These are probably the only ones in the US. If not they certainly were the first. Very sweet. Oh and a special treat next
  17. Hope this let get me the secret hand shake
  18. Just got back from the PGA show, will post pics so I can learn the secret hand shake
  19. Can you believe I just found this thread!!!!! As lefty I make it a requirement for a vendor to have at least one lefty item albeit a head, glove etc. to me it shows a commitment to the long haul in the industry. I have a youtube channel that reviews golf gear, talks to fittings and club repairs all from a lefty point of view mcgolf channel For the latest, I just received a NEW LEVEL lefty iron head and the maverick driver from Callaway, expect to see some good stuff soon. Including PGA show coverage
  20. There is a piece of info missing. Where are they landing? The numbers suggest that the contact is good if not great now how about direction. Based on the equipment, if you are looking to improve, retooling the iron may be the best bet. Based on past experiences the t90 in R flex probably is not R. get something you can have confidence in and take a rip with or finesse as needed.
  21. I would be wary of multi layer grips such as winn. The underlisting isn't know for stretching.
  22. There a few considerations when determining length of a golf club for a golfer. assuming an 1" over standard, would require a fairly flat swing. I am hope you hit that length to have actual experience hitting the club.
  23. my rep gave a conservative number of at least 36 holes. Would love to have one also.
