HI,
There's a little black band/collar about an eight of an inch tall that separates the shaft from the hosel stem/head of my Tank V-line and Arm Lock V-line putters. I'm trying to find someone who has these for sale or at least where I might find them. Callaway says they "don't have access to these little black collar parts because their putters are assembled in Mexico." Golfworks has a little O-Ring but it's not the same thing. I'm going to switch shafts on these putters and know that this band will melt when I heat the shaft to take the shaft off. I know this is an obscure request but thought i'd throw it out there on the outside chance that someone else has tried the same search.
Thanks.
Badgerman

    I have seen this posted several times but I don't think there has ever been an answer! Following to see if anyone has the goods this time around, if nothing else I can have the info for the future!

    Is there any space to wrap a cold/wet strip of cotton T-Shirt around the ferrule, and use a butane/MAP torch on the shaft, then pull the head without twisting? I can't help on original question, just trying to think outside the box. I just made my own Frankenstein Odyssey OWorks Tank, but mine was a slant neck and didn't have a black band/collar as it was an over-the-post install.

    Better late than never....wet a shoe lace with cold water, wrap it just above and over the ferrule. Heat the shaft with a propane torch ( about 10 secs) approx 1" above the wet lace and twist the head off...ferrule saved.
