  1. Oban CT115 are actually the shaft I have in my gamers - total gamechanger for me. If I do decide to ever game these if they don't sell, I will switch them out
  2. Hi all, It pains me that my headcovers don't match! I'm looking for: 3 wood and 19 hybrid in black with red stitching headcovers Alternatively: Driver, 19 hybrid, and putter (blade type for mustang) in black with white stitching Can trade any of mine, or pay. Thanks! Sean
  3. Honestly not sure what they charged mate - these were a limited run of 500 sets in 2016 - and I managed to get an unused set from another forum (can't be many left!). I have the wedges that match these and are currently still in production, and I paid about $250 per club for those, so I'd guess somewhere around $200 a head before build/shaft costs.
  4. Yeah, they're great - it's the club colours of both of my courses (Frilford Heath and Royal Cinque Ports), so had to get them when I saw them!
  5. Thanks man - they've been a major labour of love over about a year, however, almost as soon as they're done, I'm probably going to have to move them on unfortunately (who knew a new kid was so expensive!?) Will be doing my best to hold on to them and hopefully game them at some point (I've set myself a target of 5 (UK HC) before I take the plastic off!).
  6. I don't bother taping anything off - any melted plastic is very easy to wipe off the metal (tape would cause friction with this technique) I put acetone on some fine steel wool and wrap it round the ferrule. With the butt resting on the ground I spin the head with one hand whilst pinching the steel wool round the ferrule and spin it (around the club's long axis) until the ferrule is flush. It looks a bit untidy at this point - the first ferrule close up picture. Then I use a bit of acetone on a cloth to clean up in the same way (wrap round ferrule and spin head). This gets the ferrule flush, but it is not smooth. I then use a very fine grit sand paper to buff it all flat (second ferrule picture). Wipe it all down with a bit of mineral spirit, let it dry. Then use a blow torch (small kitchen type one) for about a 0.5-1 second on each part of the ferrule until it shines (finished pics). I've overdone it a bit with the blow torch and it bubbles, if this happens, let it cool, then re-sand it, then refinish with the torch. You may prefer to polish the way you do from matte, but I quite like the shiny effect from the heat. The disclaimer I should probably make is that I've sort of made this up, but seems to work!
  7. Me too not sure I can bring myself to hit them!
  8. Hi all, Just finished up a new build, finally got round to these ones! Tried out a new method (to me anyway!) of hand turning and finishing ferrules - let me know what you think! I've included some intermediate and finished photos of this. Best Sean Heads: Epon Personal 2 Shaft: Shimada K's 8001 Ferrules: Boyd BLade & Ferrule Co Grips: Lamkin crossline
  9. Got a hold of a protractor and can now check lie angle or ensure I'm measuring using the 60deg standard. Obviously need a bit of a clean up, but it does the job! S
  10. If only I could get one long enough in the UK They're all only 1m, so not quite long enough for measuring, but do have one for putting! I'll post a photo if I can find a useful way to mount a protractor on it, so that it can do lie angle as well. Not sure it'll be overly precise, but will see what happens. Thanks again for your idea! Saved me about $60! Two planks of wood, a hinge and a short ruler was $15 at most. It's $70-80 inc shipping to get the Dynacraft set up in the UK. Sean
  11. I did go to Amazon - just thought £50-60 was a bit excessive, so came across this guy's thing and thought I'd have a go. Works perfectly!
  12. Here's my attempt! Decided to use a hinge to allow for different lie angles, and will stick a protractor in there at some point too. Could get a 48" metal ruler in the UK (they're all 1m!), so used a shorter one that starts at 20"! Thanks for the great idea! Sean
  13. I'd love to see these vs P790 - given that the 790 really is the market leader (in terms of units sold) in hollow body irons. The TXG boys really spoke very highly of these - keen to know if they're worth the "upgrade"!
  14. I have a feeling there's a few people that have misread the eligibility for this one! For those that don't use anything - this is a great opportunity and will change your game! Looking forward to readgin these reviews.
