@  Armyguy13 : (20 October 2014 - 08:14 PM) Voted for Andrew --- he's currently in the lead with 65.5% to 26.5% being the next place vote getter
@  TWshoot67 : (20 October 2014 - 04:54 PM) Andrew great job and I hope you make the Guinness book of world records. You got my vote! shared and tweeted.
@  HossOnMoss : (20 October 2014 - 01:46 PM) @Quantum: Rome 988 is actually a little smoother feeling and higher launch than DI-95 hybrid without feeling "loose" or being spinny. Rome 888 is going to launch lower and spin less than Speeder 757.
@  ROBOPTI : (17 October 2014 - 03:05 PM) BSGers - Fellow member & Cally Kings of Distance member Fraketrain needs our help !!! - For a spot in the Guiness Book of World Records http://www.guinnessw...ote-now!-61189/

@  J13 : (07 October 2014 - 07:50 AM) I"m using an I25 now love it but the G30 LST is coming around January
@  BingHogan : (07 October 2014 - 12:08 AM) So, is the Ping I 25 dead!? Loved the I 20 with the K.
@  BingHogan : (05 October 2014 - 09:27 PM) Saw him hit a putter 280! Then saw him play and putted -- 280... :rolleyes:
@  youngwaldo : (05 October 2014 - 11:12 AM) Yes it is, but we can give him a break because its just for show.
@  Shambles : (05 October 2014 - 03:11 AM) Isn't that considered building a stance ?

@  rfdegen : (30 September 2014 - 09:30 AM) All I saw over and over was Euros firing at flags, USA middle of green or off. Euros draining putts left and right, UWA missing a lot with tentative strokes.
@  BingHogan : (29 September 2014 - 09:40 AM) Just heard on The Golf Channel -- if Phil and a few others are on in 2016 -- a new Red, White and Blue Skirt will designed for the ladies/guys!
@  BingHogan : (29 September 2014 - 09:37 AM) I don't know why but I am just pissed about this! If you are going to have an AMERICAN FLAG as big as a battleship on - you best be bringing' it!
@  Qwagmire : (29 September 2014 - 09:29 AM) Best line I read about the Ryder Cup: Mickelson: What has been in common with all of our Ryder Cup losses recently? Scribe: Mickelson was on the team. Phil broke the code, threw everyone under the bus
@  BingHogan : (29 September 2014 - 09:12 AM) AMEN QUAGS -- and who picked out their "costumes". Maybe the Golf Channel can do a complete makeover... I'm sure that's next.
@  Qwagmire : (28 September 2014 - 11:18 PM) US Squad is too spoiled to do anything but watch their stock portfolios.
@  BingHogan : (28 September 2014 - 02:11 PM) He then said: PGA's new mantra instead of "These guys are Good" should be: "these Guys Really Suck!" Thanks Professor, we all agree!

@  BingHogan : (27 September 2014 - 08:08 PM) So,,they can't play in a wee bit of Real golf conditions. Gettin' beat by French guy. Time for a putting lesson!
@  tmfreak : (27 September 2014 - 07:42 PM) US always wears the most horrid outfits, Saturday RC '14 was a new level of awful. cant possibly play let alone win looking like fools.
@  TWshoot67 : (27 September 2014 - 06:30 PM) USA has EURO just where they want them.... USA:6, EURO:10. The writers are ready for the big story and the cliche' title for said story!

@  BingHogan : (12 September 2014 - 11:22 AM) First ball out of the box-- Back of the net! Second, straight little draw. As Kenny Perry once said: " I Kain't miss it!" Really haven't hit a driver like that in years!
@  J13 : (12 September 2014 - 09:45 AM) Bio Cell is a hidden gem. Heard Cobra is bringing the HEAT next year.

@  BingHogan : (10 September 2014 - 09:24 AM) Send some of that rain down to California! Central Valley will be gone by next summer if it doesn't rain/snow. Towns without water...
@  rfdegen : (10 September 2014 - 07:31 AM) We're still playing golf here - in between thunderstorms. Record rains in WI. Sucks!
@  TJR : (09 September 2014 - 09:30 PM) I need to play. Been going to the range, but my swing sucks right now. Playing crooked stick in 2 weeks if the weather is decent.

@  rfdegen : (09 September 2014 - 08:58 AM) Got my sleeve of test balls and will be testing them tonight, if it doesn't rain again! Crap! We're flooding around here these days. Enough already!
@  burniemac : (09 September 2014 - 07:42 AM) Just got a sleeve of the Titleist test balls in the mail yesterday
@  BingHogan : (08 September 2014 - 06:16 PM) Sleeves that have been handed out. Looks like more spin probably due to lower spinning drivers coming out.
@  TWshoot67 : (08 September 2014 - 01:56 PM) Are we talking the New Titleist sleeves that have been sent out?
@  TWshoot67 : (08 September 2014 - 01:55 PM) @BingHogan is this ball from a New Company or just a new Proto for next years possible selections?
@  BingHogan : (07 September 2014 - 10:10 PM) Testing a new ball prototype tomorrow. Sworn to not to loose it. Just hit it and see...
@  BingHogan : (07 September 2014 - 09:58 PM) Maura Passing Point with KBS V -- Sweet! Hit 200 and couldn't put em down. Great turf interaction and feel.
@  TJR : (06 September 2014 - 09:27 PM) I was talking to someone today and mentioned that this is probably the first time I've been completely satisfied with the clubs in my bag
@  BingHogan : (06 September 2014 - 07:43 PM) Decided to go through ALL my bags and start over from driver to wedges.
@  BingHogan : (06 September 2014 - 07:42 PM) PP - large cavity. Doesn't have the new CB yet. Also the new blade. Really expensive, though. Might have to break out the new MP 69's.
@  TJR : (06 September 2014 - 02:30 PM) Should feel buttery soft. Blade or CB?
@  BingHogan : (06 September 2014 - 09:53 AM) Hitting a Miura with KBS V later today to add to the confusion :rolleyes:

@  TWshoot67 : (30 August 2014 - 09:27 PM) Congrats Robo on the site and the shafts. Are you having Veylix design for your shaft co.?
@  ROBOPTI : (30 August 2014 - 10:36 AM) XPHLEXXX.COM IS LIVE !!! ... BSG HYPERLINKS ON PAGE :)
@  BingHogan : (28 August 2014 - 10:20 PM) A zinger is probably right. He's the only one on the GC that knows what he's talking about.
@  TJR : (28 August 2014 - 04:14 PM) Azinger said he could fix Tiger in 10 minutes...
@  youngwaldo : (28 August 2014 - 09:40 AM) Butch is slowing down so taking Tiger will not happen.
@  HossOnMoss : (28 August 2014 - 09:16 AM) I've heard the Grant Waite rumors as well, but that would be so similar to how Foley teaches. That's not to say that Grant couldn't teach him better even with a similar model or style.
@  HossOnMoss : (28 August 2014 - 09:15 AM) Butch already said no and Tiger isn't going to take the left overs. I could see Claude III as an outside possibility otherwise, but I doubt it because of that.
@  BingHogan : (28 August 2014 - 08:57 AM) Gotta be one of the Harmon's. Or all of them. It's not the coach...
@  J13 : (28 August 2014 - 06:04 AM) I'm taking myself out of consideration to be tigers next coach lol
@  ballen : (28 August 2014 - 04:56 AM) I hear Grant Waite will be Tigers next.......
@  BingHogan : (27 August 2014 - 09:38 PM) RIP Tours - unbelievably good!
@  BingHogan : (27 August 2014 - 09:37 PM) Tiger maybe running out of options. Maybe Leadbetter :rolleyes:
@  HossOnMoss : (27 August 2014 - 09:28 AM) Tiger holds interviews for the position. Breed walks up and says, "Come on, Tiger! LET'S DO THIS!!!!" Tiger and I are thinking the same thing....BRUTAL. Haha
@  TWshoot67 : (26 August 2014 - 07:54 PM) Heck Tiger doesn't need to be with Michael Breed he's already a weekly discussion about the golf swing even when he's not playing on the Golf Channel....
@  Golferrob22 : (26 August 2014 - 06:36 PM) I'd put some money on Bob May! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA
@  TJR : (26 August 2014 - 06:26 PM) How about Michael Breed? Tiger could be featured on a weekly segment of "The Golf Fix"
@  HossOnMoss : (26 August 2014 - 12:04 PM) I figured it was coming. Who's up next for the position? My money is on Chuck Cook.
@  BingHogan : (25 August 2014 - 02:21 PM) Still would like Tiger to get to at LEAST 18 Majors! That will tick off Chamblee.
@  TWshoot67 : (25 August 2014 - 01:55 PM) Tiger and Foley are done. The split has been announced by both sides1

Is there anything special that needs to be done to put a .355 taper tip shaft into a .370 iron head? Shim or taper tip ferrule?

It's not the recommended procedure, but shimming works okay in combination with 24 hour epoxy. The problem is, that you don't achieve a perfect fit and the epoxy in the lowest part of the hosel gets compressed, wich is not what this glue type is designed for. So failures happen more often compared to sets that are build with the correct shaft tip for the hosel bore. Using fast drying epoxy raises the chance for failure in my experience. And you can use a 0.370 ferrule, because the upper part of the 0.355 shaft is 0.370 anyway. And most of the times, these ferrules give a better fit, when used with 0.370 hosels. Best way is to measure the hosel OD and buy a ferrule that fits perfectly from the beginning.

Best regards,
Michael

Using the highest strength epoxy which I would always reccommend doing when shafting steel, I have never had any failures doing this at all. I much prefer to shimm taper tip shafts into parallel hosels so that you do not have to go with .370 parallel on unitized shafts like DG or KBS which are constant weight in taper version, but will become descending weight once trimmed individually from a .370 unitized blank.

For .370 shafts like Rifle's which are not unitized and descending weight to begin with, it doesn't really matter.
