  1. as for the 23rd I am out of the running. It is mrs mcgolfs birthday weekend where family is coming in. Please keep me in mind for the next one
  2. Saw the title of the thread ,,, duh> Need to check with mrs mcgolf.
  3. Im in just need the date and the place. Keeping in mind the further our the better as our fitting schedule is filling up like pouring water into a glass
  4. thanks for the compliment, tip weight selection is really determined by the shaft that is used for the build. Pure grips are easily installed with air but I am an old schooler and it works the same
  5. If you mean by "bullet weight" a smaller tip weight for the shaft. It takes a bit more work and a little more heat. There are two methods I use. 1) heat the hosel out and in much like a shaft extraction, clean out the hosel as much as you can, use an AWL to move the weight around and loosen the weight from the hosel. tap it out, this is shown in the video below. 2) most of the tip weights are either lead or brass. Mostly brass to stay away from handling lead. after applying heat in the same manner as described above. use a small drill bit to start a pilot hole in the tip weight. The
  6. One of the key factor for most folks switch was the wear and tear on the body. putting the bag on and taking it can takes it toll on the golfer during the round. The additioanl storage if you are a pack rat. If nothing else you can place essentials with reach. Things to consider when looking 1) will it fit into the trunk of the vehicle, seems easy but it does get over looked. Some cart fold into a sliver of the original size while some fold in half and take up substantial room. 2) which brings us to the ease of folding, Do you need a degree in origami to get the cart small or is it intu
  7. Im in, new work hours should allow for a game or two
  8. a pop can cut into the shape of the shim you can get at golfworks. another may and I say be fishing line ran up the back.
  9. I've watched this thread with interest as one might understand. Lets start with a bit of common ground. The one absolute is when the ball is in the cup the hole is over. That's about it. We all have different golfing needs, have different physical and mental attributes and experiences which makes up why golf is so fantastic, there is far more than one way to get the ball into the cup. Much like there are good and bad teaching professionals there are good and bad fitters. Just as there are different swing methods there are different fitting methods and as posted, having the best
  10. The original Scotland loft and lie machine was a beast and compete with the Mitchell units. IMO the mitchell was easier to use and probably one of the reasons they are still in business. The True blue is an updated version of the scotland and again IMO a better unit by far. If one were to get started it would be a good unit for reliable loft and lie changes however the cost of machine is in the eye of the beholder.
  11. short answer is you got the worng size. I did that on purpose Shims come in 370-400, 355 -370 335 - 350 and some 400. Could it be done, Yes but at great risk to the head being dislodged. you would be much happier and at ease if you used the 335 adapter. Oh and the 370 adapter is shorter and wont fit in the driver.
  12. Swing speed has nothing to do with the ease of the fitting, the fact you have limitations makes the fitters job a challenge. Much like a golfer with an overly sensitive feel for a golf club. You can neither see or feel what is going on with the golfer until they are in the both making contact, GIVING FEED BACK, and reacting to change in the equipment. Unfortunately you are also in the that part of the career in golf that is akin to just starting. where age related issue may cause more frequent changes in gear. Just as a younger golfer will experience a growth spurt and strength, you my f
  13. I had been building up that portion of the grip for years. When the MCC4+ came it seemed a no-brainer and still is to this day for me To the point the MCC4+ in the tour velvet style made its way onto the driver and feel good too.
  14. pulling from and adapter is very different than a bonded club. The technique is the same the amount or time needed can be very different. I have found about 30 sec is the average time for the application of heat before the epoxy will release in an adapter as most are made from aluminum and transfer heat rapidly. bonded heads have thicker hosels (obviously) and the addition of the head that can act and a heat sink. This time is double if not more than the hosel removal requirement. The simple give away on the shaft is the rigidity of the tip went pulled and after it cools. Again if
  15. another clubmaker friend of mine developed a rash when gripping clubs, turned out it was a mild allergic reaction from being exposed to a large amount of the solvent. Ive not heard of the issue since. However, he started the use of surgeons gloves, nitrile, or alike type and the rash went away. He also washed after each grip session. Since that time, Ive washed my hands after each gripping session, no issue after 20+ years.

    Travel bags

    I've had the sun mountain pro travel bag club glider, took overseas multiple times and to Fla more times than I can count without an issue. Only recently I found a tear in the bag by handle. After years of pulling wrapping inspecting etc, Im ok with it and got another. The unit moves with ease. is quite large and can hold just about anything . Fitting into a truck is problematic if the car is small. a medium car it will have to go in at an angle. I drive a truck or a yukon so no real concern for me in that category.
  17. Mitchell and Scotland used to be the ones to get. Scotland went away and Trublue is the new version of the same. Filling the void until trublue came out golf mechanix and golf works both produced models that were meant for the hobbyist. They offered multiple models based on the effort loft and lie adjustments the user was willing to do. If you are doing this on the side and dont see much traffic in this area I would look at the GM and GW mid range models or the mitchell used market. If you are going to jump into the adjustment game with both feet then look heavily at T
  18. 2 things: I would a hyde type knife to flick the glue off. Dont scrape get just under it then flick it. 2nd is that really a putter shaft into a putter at that angle? i appears that its 2 pieces that a butt glued together.
  19. Bending the club 2 degree will not be a issue. But as previously posted there is always a possibility for breakage however small.
  20. Not all mats are created equal, I use fiber built which will take a fat shot, and it will been seen by the LM
  21. There are a few books out there. Golfworks has a newer fitting book and Wishon also has a good fitting book to comb through. Id start there first. There is a school if GW ever restarts. There are 2 organizations ICG International clubmaker guild (dont let the name fool ya) and AGCP If you want to learn fitting, start with the books
