Can the Spring like effect (.COR) increase as the driver gets older through use??? Is this a cause for cracked heads?

    The amout would be very minimal at best.

    Most heads crack from over heating while reshafting or hitting it repeatedly on the top weld.

    I can tell you that the effect is just the opposite. What happens is the metal get fatiqued over time and begins to soften a bit. While it's minimal, it does reduce the "tightness" or elasticity effect when compared to a fresher, newer metal face. 99.999999999% of the time, you, I and everyone else won't be able to tell the difference but it does exist.



    Believe it or not, this is straight from my college days long ago as it was one class that I actually attended because the prof, well let's just say she was a hottie. image/crazy.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':(' /> image/idhitit.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':lol:' /> image/crazy.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':beach:' />

    Does anyone get Golfweek? Supposedly this was said by John Solheim:


    "We see it all the time. The ball goes farther after the driver has been used a while."

    I didn't see that article and John's not a hottie in my book. image/cheesy.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':help:' /> I can only speak for what the basic characteristics of metal are after being flexed and fatiqued over time. I was simply applying those characteristics to the face of a golf club. Makes sense, doen't it? Metal is metal is metal and under stress, loses it's durability over time. Apply the same theory to shafts. A softer shaft does not "spring back" or snap back as quickly as a stiffer one and that's why you have to be stronger to load or flex a stiffer shaft and get the most out of it. Here's another one; if the springs on a trampoline were loosened, would you spring back as easily? I think it would have a deadening effect. How about these analogies.....ever hit balls into a net that's real tight? The ball rebounds off the net or "springs" back at you more readily that if the net is hanging loosely. The looser the net the deader the impact and the ball just falls down. Ever dribble a basketball and hit a loose, fatiqued, dead spot in the wood on the floor? It kills the rebound or "spring back" effect of the basketball.



    I'm no scientist but coomon sense sometimes prevails.
