I know what you mean - that looks gorgeous. I miss that about old persimmon clubs. Many were works of art, and because of the grain, unique to each person.

Those look great-are they Louisvilles?

Yes it is. It was cheaper to get the head than the shaft ironically. As far distance and accuracy, it goes farther on the screws but less on heel and toe hits. The gear effect is strong so a 340 drive becomes a 240 which is a big drop but it's in the fairway. The 48" metal stick I use will go 300 no matter what, whether it's straight or 4 fairways over. Plus my favorite part, the crack. It's like an old v8 with a cam. I'm much more motivated. To each their own but Louisville made a great club.

Something about anything apart from steel that looks odd paired with persimmon. I did have a graphite shaft in my Joe Powell a few years ago, but I still think steel is the ultimate shaft for persimmon. Of course, the Dynamic Gold shaft is a much different beast in woods and plays quite soft IMO - still the best shaft for a number of die-hard wood fans.

I'd love a steel shaft in persimmon if I had one stiff enough or long enough. Springs are made of steel right? However, I could find one stiffer than an x and 44" long
