So m next door neighbor is really excited to get into building clubs again. He I even offered to do a reshaft for me. I am skeptical and even more so after he told me he was gonna use gorilla glue for the epoxy. Does anyone know a good epoxy to use for clubs that I can tell him to use?

Please don't use Gorilla Glue or anything other than epoxy; or else that club will wind up on @McGolf's next bad repair video. I am sure better prices can be found but Golfworks has the real stuff, I've added the link below.

I usually use the Golfworks brand or Bramptons.  Both are great.

Nooooooooooooo!!!  Do not use Gorilla glue!  Don't take clubs to him cause that's definitely not a good choice for building clubs.  

GolfWorks has good epoxy 

I use this ...........

I use this for graphite shafts/adapters: GolfWorks High Strength Epoxy

I use this for steel shafts: Brampton Epoxy

I've been using both of these products for years and have never had any issue with either.

Theoretically, many of the epoxy/glue over the counter could bond the parts together well, that might include the gorilla glue.

The thing to watch out for for golf club making is not just the tensile strength of the bonding but because there is a very good chance either you or someone else  might wish to take the club apart in the future to either repair or change shaft so the breakdown temperature is one element which could not be ignored.

Go to your local hardware store, read off the label of the two parts long cure epoxy.  Find one which have high tensile strength and low temperature break down.  

Most the so called golf epoxy will break apart around 200F - 220F.

The golf stores will order the epoxy in large quantity and bottle it, brand it for retail.  Buying from hardware store might cost a little more but convenient if you're not doing the re-shaft in volume.

Brampton's 5/20 has been my go-to for one or two shafts for a while now. If I'm doing more than two at a time, I'll use their longer cure epoxy. I also like it because of its relatively low heat breakdown. And for some reason it clean up is a piece of cake after pulling the shaft.

Changes by the month. 🙂
