Shamada Oban and Nippon Shafts

08 November 2018 - 05:34 PM

Well, just sitting here on this beautiful day in Protestlandia, Oregon and wondering if anyone has tried the Shamada/Oban shafts.


I have a few 8 irons shafted up in the Nippon 950 Gh and 1050 GH but hearing some excellent reports on the Shamada and Oban extruded shafts.


I was super impressed with the 950 GH effortless and long.  8 iron close to 150 on a 53 degree damp day. The 1050 was OK.  


Researching  the OBAN by Shimada,  they are  stating  a full extruded shaft without the seam.  Also a ton of subsets for weight and flex in and around a light gram weight.  


Going into a 919 Tour head. Lovely!!




Knee Replacement Surgery and Golf

08 November 2018 - 05:18 PM

First of all, I hope you all had a great golf season and Congratulations to Rick on that superb win at his Club Championship!


I am considering how to avoid knee replacement surgery but I think the inevitable may be required.  I didn't play much golf this year, probably a hand full of rounds due to the left knee. 


I have talked to a lot of guys, not golfers however, who have had the knee replacement surgery and all say its worth the pain and agony for a month but they didn't play golf.


So, I was wondering if any of you had or knew anyone who had this surgery. 


I am going down to the Carmel/Monterey area next week and NOT taking the clubs.  Call CNN and FOX!


Please let me know what your outcome has been and if you recommended it or not.







Stability Putter Shaft -- Huh???

18 September 2018 - 05:06 PM

Just watching a video with Ian Frasier on TXG regarding the Break Through "Stablitiy" putter shaft.


Anyone playing this new tech for putters or is it an unnecessary expense?


Supposed to have a very balanced weight and feel with low torque.... 










Dynamic Gold 120 -- Any opinions?

16 August 2018 - 08:27 PM

Need to find a shaft for my next set up of irons - MP18SC.


Anyone playing the S300 or S400 TI's?


I have shafted up the following:  KBS Tour V, LZ 5.5, Modus 130 in reg and stiff, Modus 105's in MP 18 and MP 18SC.  Not happy with any of them except the Tour V in stiff.  I have a set of the AMT's in a set of JPX 900's and they re about the best but  they "ain't no"  Dynamic Golds.  


Any guidance would be appreciated!




Graphene - Next big thing in Golf?

28 April 2018 - 08:41 AM

Well, its been a while, but I have been looking at the info and science for a while and have noticed that graphene is  used in a golf ball...  ??? 


In my opinion, the real advantage would be in a driver shaft since since it properties are nothing short of amazing!



Anyone know if we will be seeing graphene in our new generation golf shafts?


(got to help those long drive guys)
