  1. You might could accomplish 1/8th in longer with a grip that has a longer bell cap (the top end of the grip) versus length the shafts. Older Ping grips, not sure about newer ones, had a longer bell cap then most grips. That said, I would tell you 1/8th will not matter.,
  2. I always cut of 1/2 of every other "leg" on brass shims. I felt it made for a more secure bond.
  3. Try this: https://www.dickssportinggoods.com/p/head-xtreme-soft-overgrip-16heduxtrmsftvrgrtnn/16heduxtrmsftvrgrtnn?recid=Product_PageElement_product_rr_3_37953_&rrec=true
  4. I knew Dick Weiss quite well. SST Puring is more important with graphite shafts especially those in longer clubs. I think at one time there was well over 60 manufacturers of graphite shafts. Talk about a roll of dice. One never knew the quality one was getting. Some were so bad, SST Pured or not they should have been trashed. I have always maintained that SST Puring will make the club play and feel consistent. I never claimed any distance gain and if there was it was because of the consistency and feel, the golfer could jump on it some and fell comfortable. Myself I have my 1-3-5 woods shafts Pured. I FLO the rest of my club's shafts. SST Tour Van will (use to) Pure shafts free for Touring Pros if they could use the players name on a list of those they have Pured. Many say why the hell not. It cannot hurt. I know one well known Touring Pro that had his putter shaft SST Pured. He said, it can not hurt.
  5. At 100 pounds, yea they will feel the difference when they swing it.....LOL
  6. Before there were a lot of steel shaft selections it was not uncommon to mix shafts such as TT Dynalite in longer clubs. TT Lite in mid clubs. TT Dynamic in shorter clubs. Kind of like like Rifle Flighted before its time.
  7. To add to Stuart G post: The Pured shaft position should not change when an adapter is adjusted. Look at it this way. Say the Pured position is in line with a line on the grip and when you grip the club, the line falls in a position in your hands. When adjusting the adapter, the line on the grip (hence where in your hands when gripped) should be at the same place when the club is gripped. Picture a ribbed grip. The rib should remain in your hands at the same position regardless of the adapter position.
  8. An Advocate of Puring or not, the Pured shaft position should not change when the adapter is adjusted. Look at it this way. Say the Pured position is in line with a line on the grip and when you grip the club, the line falls is a position in your hands. When adjusting the adapter, the line on the grip (hence where in your hands when grippee) should be at the same place when the club is gripped. Picture a ribbed grip. The rib should remain in your hands at the same position regardless of the adapter position.
  9. I would not call it hoarding but I do have several backup shafts for my woods. Aldila NV 55A, SST Pured.
  10. I have seen it done this way. Works well if not to much shaft insertion.
  11. Great graphic. You say D3 is to heavy for you. Let me reduce it to D0. Feel lighter?
  12. Older Aldila. Driver is NV 55, A flex, SST Pured. 3 and 5 woods are NVS, 55, A flex, SST Pured. I have backups for each. I do not think they are any longer available.
  13. Lock a 3/th inch rat tail file horizontally in a vice. Run the ferrule up and down it a few times. Easy peasy
  14. The plus or minus shown is based on the difference between the pinned bar and the actual loft. Let us say the pin bar is at 24*. The difference between the pin bar 24* and the plus or minus indicator loft indicator is the actual loft. It does not give an actual loft. I prefer the Scotland even when one has to change the loft bar setting.
