As a recovering sufferer from Tennis elbow, if these could out Steelfiber Steelfiber, I would be very interested for sure if they became available for entire sets at a price no more stupid than Steelfiber :-)
Ping G400 with Ping Tour 65 stiff played at 44.5
Taylormade M2 16.5 degree with Hzrdus stiff
Srixon U65 3i and 4i SteelFiber
Mizuno MP18 MMC PW-5i with Recoil F4
Callaway PM 56 & 60 Steelfiber
Scotty Cameron Select Fastback

I am thinking about playing golf next year instead of HOing clubs!

I dunno, just looks like someone stuck a steel shaft extender in the back of a graphite shaft.  Bad club-making if you ask me.... :busted2:

What you think it looks like has got nothing to do with reality, and I highly doubt Nippon, probably the world's tightest tolerances shaft maker, is going to be guilty "bad club-making". Nothing is "busted" by you AT ALL

That's a steel shaft sprayed with some Flex Seal.

TM M1 Tour 18 Aldila RIP Alpha 6
TM TP UDI 2 iron 18 UST Recoil 110
