  2. One of the things i found i use more than I would have thought was a small strap wrench (with rubber strap). Found it to be real handy for moving ferrules that fit really tight. Also have used it to be able to get purchase on ferrules on finished clubs where the ferrule started to separate from the hosel. I have used it to move ferrules up the shaft away from the head in the effort to keep them away from heat and save them when disassembling clubs. I second the ramrod idea as well. I just got a thin piece of rod stock (have both 1/8 and 5/16) from my local ace. came in either 36 or 48 inch lengths and if i remember correctly they were under $10 a piece.

  4. I am looking to order a new set of wedges during the sub70 cyber monday sale. They are a parallel tip head/shaft and I am trying to decide which shaft to get. Having not played parallel tip KBS shafts before, I was curious as to what your opinions are of launch distance between the two. Most of what i have read says that there isn't going to be a difference except for the overall weight would be less with a parallel due to descending weight versus constant weight in the taper. I have taper 120S in my irons, and just tyring to get a better idea what i should do for the wedge shafts to go along with the irons. Would i be better off going 130x and soft stepping 2x to get more shaft weight? Also, the 105 is a higher launch/spin shaft than the 120. Has anyone noticed a marked distance difference between the two in the same head?

    I haven't hit the 699, but i got a set of the 639cb black at the end of september. I was coming from a split set of srixon 765/965 (6-7 765, 8-pw 965) and debated on going split again or straight cb. Decided with the cb mainly because who doesn't want a little extra forgiveness. I haven't had a problem with flighting the ball or moving it in either direction. In my opinion the 639 feel better to me than the srixons on well struck shots. I went with taper tip heads and KBS 120S just like my srixon, had the 639 lofts weakened 1* to better match the lofts i was playing and I am a half a club longer with the 639 with a slightly higher ball flight. Love em so far, unfortuantely i probably am done playing due to weather until next april.

    Just confirmed my order this morning with Shane on the phone. I know three weeks or so is not that long of a wait for custom clubs, but man i wish they were here now, can't wait. With the demo 639cb, I am almost a club longer than my z965 9 iron (the 639 is one degree stronger). And a playing partner today commented on how the ball just seemed to pierce the wind and hold its line really well. I ended up ordering 639 CB black in taper tip with KBS Tour 120S, 1 inch black with red and white lines ferrules, 1 degree weak through the set with Winn Dri-Tac 2.0 standard. Also picked up a ball marker in red, i really like the look of their markers, will see on paint durability with the ball mark tool usually jingling around in the same pocket. So excited for these to get here so they can start earning back some money. Thanks JaySub70 for the help with some questions and a big thanks to the staff at Sub70. I got replies to every email I sent (to the customer service email) answering my questions within a couple of hours each time. They even sent me an email Monday (Labor Day) to confirm they could get me the taper tip shafts and what the cost would be. Very impressed.

    I have a question for those who have hit the 639 MB. After talking to customer service, they told me the CB are quite a bit more forgiving than the MB. I currently have a demo set of the cb I have been testing, and was considering the combo set due to lower amount of offset on the shorter irons. I am just curious if any one has hit both sets, or even the MB, what their feelings were in terms of forgiveness. I currently play a 765/965 srixon combo set. I like having the blade short irons for shot making/work-ability, but since my miss is thin would probably benefit more from the extra forgiveness of the cb. But if the MB are maybe more forgiving than the 965, could possibly still go combo. Thanks for any insight you may be able to provide.

How could a Rapsodo MLM help your game? Would help with figuring distances and gaps, would be very beneficial since i recently made a swing change and need to dial in the driver and 3 wood to best fit the new swing. Would also love to be able to view the swing with the corresponding launch data to help tighten certain areas of the swing up. also would be great to fine tune the distances on wedges since i switched lofts, company and bounces I am still unsure of distances for less than full shots. 5.
