  1. Thanks for the feedback. I was thinking along the same lines because I hate having different feeling shafts in my wedges.
  2. I pulled this off a putter that I sent to the Custom Shop about two years ago. It's seen the course a couple times at most and is in excellent condition. I can 100% guarantee it is authentic because it came directly from Cameron and never left my possession. I'll probably regret selling it but it'll just sit in my office for the next two years if I don't so someone needs to enjoy it. They are all over the map when they sell but in this condition I'll put it at $100 OBO. I would love to get it sold tonight and shipped tomorrow morning.
  3. I'm going to do a winter experiment and throw a set of PX LS in my irons. What are guys playing in their wedges to match these? I'll probably put them in my wedges as well if they work in my irons but I'm curious as to what people that have experience with the PX LS shafts are playing in their irons.
  4. +1. There is a lot of bad information in the topic but that is probably the worst. I love the type of metal that qualifies as forged argument. Also I'm not sure that chrome plating is banned to the point it doesn't exist and I'm not sure why that would cause a club to be cast and not forged.
  5. If they brought the TP logo back I would switch back to Taylormade for no other reason.
  6. They could be that far ahead with technology but I doubt it. If the company that makes the materials for them has something proprietary they may have them tied up for three years but as big as composites is right now it'll take someone a couple weeks to replicate it. If this works it will be a game changer for the manufacturing process. Titanium is a nightmare to work with and a headache to source so if TM can finally make a composite face work the other OEMs will be lining up to follow them. The Callaway C4 had three problems: it was nearly impossible to reshaft, it delaminated easily in the elements, and it sounded bad. The onset of adjustable heads cured the first one and twenty years of technology should solve the second so I'm interested to see how they get the sound/feel right.
  7. This is a backup to a backup and I’m moving so I have to trim it back to just two of them. Someone is going to get a very good deal.
  8. I’ve got a Tour Issue Toulon Garage Madison with the H1 neck for sale. Green and white paint fill and it is in 9.5 of 10 condition. Face and sole are very clean but it you really want to get picky there are a couple very small “shop wear” rub marks. It’s 34.5”, 70 degree lie, and 3 degree loft. The weight is an S/20 and it has a Larkin Deep Etch Cord grip. It has the Tour ID label on the shaft. $245 TYD in the US. PM for addition pics or questions.
  9. If you compare them all to the other drivers available at the time it has to be the 510TP. The 510TP performed and it was just flat out cool with the big price tag and the Speeder shaft. If you compare them to the other TM drivers of all time I think the SIM wins it for me.
  10. Time to move some experiments. They all have Tour Velvet 360 grips, Sure Fit adaptors installed and prices include ConUS shipping. HZRDUS Smoke Green 60 6.5. It was not tipped, plays 45.5” and is in excellent condition. $100 Fubuki 53 x5ct X Flex. It was tipped 1/2” and plays 45”. Again in excellent condition. $75 Accra TZ RPG 462 M5+ Gold. It’s in excellent condition and was not tipped. Plays 45.5”. It’s got a small name etched near the tip so I will price it accordingly. SOLD
  11. You’re quoting rule 4 so if you go to I believe it’s at the end of part two you’ll see the language that applies to this situation. I think you’re not understanding that there is a standard for conformance of alterations during a round and another for what constitutes a conforming club before the round. To me it seems like you are just reading way too much into the rules so I’m not sure how to explain it in a way that would clear things up.
  12. It amazes me that the portion in italics above is hard for someone to understand.
  13. That was Callaway’s take on things. The driver he had in the bag had never been tested by the USGA or R&A before that point. Callaway tested it at 255 the week of the Open and the R&A tested it at 258 so it’s more likely that one CT machine or the other wasn’t calibrated correctly than the face got faster through normal use. Ping also had a head fail the R&A test that week.
  14. I’ve had USGA certifications for about 20 years now and the Camerons actually brought this up, performance benefit of a foreign substance on the face of a club, so they eventually settled on if it was used to change the performance of a club it wasn’t permitted. Small amounts of cleaning products or oil on a putter face isn’t used to change the performance where putting something slick on a driver face would serve no purpose other than attempting to change performance. The reason the equipment rule reads that a club has to conform both before and after any alterations can actually go back to driver shaving or ever more to the days people used to sand the face of drivers like the Titleist 975D to make them faster before testing became more widely used. The Sabatini example is simple because any sort of tape on the face is expressly forbidden. If you have a price tag on the face of a club it’s game over in a tournament. People that don’t understand the rules fully tend to read too much in to them when they try to make interpretations. I think some of the confusion like you can’t change a grip without making your club non-conforming comes from someone reading the rule but not understanding the underlying equipment rule first.
  15. No. A club that wears through normal use will always conform so long as it conformed when new. Normal use is the key.
  16. There isn't any epoxy in it. Naturally as soon as I posted this I got it to come loose. I tried heat in the past but this time I heated it and tapped it on a rubber mat with the toe towards the ground. This got it to come out right away so it was dumb luck.
  17. The USGA Club rule specifically states that no type of tape is allowed on the club face. It literally says any type of tape or similar material added to the face is not permitted under any circumstance so I'm not sure why this is even an issue...
  18. Paint fill would be considered a permanent coating and is allowed under the rules. A sticker or tape is not allowed. Really the only exception of something that isn't permanent is leftover cleaning residue or back in the day baby oil on Camerons that doesn't influence performance characteristics. It's in the Equipment Rules book under section 2.
  19. Does anyone have a trick for removing a stuck weight in a Toulon? I've tried quite a few methods and can't get the weight out of the sole. Screws are all out and the thing won't budge.
