    Q7 try it in the extreme heat and you might watch some heads fly. the temps inside the trunk of a car can reach 200+ degrees which is about when club epoxies start to break down

    Question 4 says can and WILL rust. Stainless steal heads can rust, but it does not mean they will.

    I have a set of old stainless steal callaways. I am very meticulous about cleaning my clubs, these haven’t been used for a while but still no rust.

    Bill:

    This is one of the reason why we have continued to use the same epoxy for over 20 years as the breakdown temperature is closer to 300 degrees and far above the temperatures I have ever heard of in a car trunk.

    Chance:

    The main point was to let people aware that under the right conditions, rusting can occur. But is sounds like you have done a good job keeping them clean and in an environment that will keep them that way.

    Question seven was the only one I got wrong, not for epoxy breakdown, but for possible warping of graphite shafts. I have a large collection of clubmakeing books, can’t recall where I read about this. My books go back many years, is it that graphite technology has improved ?.

  6. Bruce says:

    I know that I did not get any wrong but I would still like to be able to see it. the next button has a problem
