  2. $20 Per Iron Head for re-epoxying?

    Does this seem right? Just had 4 irons which had loose heads taken apart and put back together by a local dealer. $80 plus tax. I couldn't believe it! Am I out in left field or are they? What would you pay?

  3. "Flighted"

    I am seeing a reoccurring theme with rifle shafts that are coming out on higher end clubs now. Whether it's rifle 5.0, 5.5, 6.0 WHATEVER. I see some of them that are also "FLIGHTED". What exactly does this mean? A different ball flight then the original I'm sure but what exactly is the difference??...

  4. "Length" on Manufacturer's Websites.

    Where do the manufacturers measure the "length" from when they give this measurement along with the loft angles and other measurements? Is it from the end of the hosel to the end of the shaft?

  5. .335 driver shaft a little big for Driver Head

    I've got a Nakashima High loft ladies driver head and I'm fitting it with a .335 tip which I thought was really bang on. Now I find that the .335 tip is just a little large for this driver head. I've cleaned the head out well - and really don't want to bore the Nak hosel. I really can't figure...
