New Brampton Clubmaking Supplies Arriving This Week at Hireko

Brampton Clubmaking Supplies are Easier & More Economical!

Download Hireko Golf CatalogClubmakers are generally loyal to an epoxy.  That is, once they start building clubs, generally they will have their “go to” epoxy they use for all their assemblies and repairs and won’t seek an alternative for as long as they build clubs. That is, unless the epoxy is discontinued by the manufacturer or their supplier goes out of business.  After all, why chance something as important as an epoxy bond when what you are using is working well and gives you the assurance that at the end of the day what you put together is not going to go flying off?

Occasionally a clubmaker may opt for two types of epoxy; one is a slow cure for long term usage and a fast-setting for quick repairs or emergencies. But that might be the extent of it.

Brampton Epoxies
Just recently we began distributing Brampton epoxies. Many clubmakers already use Brampton epoxies and we decided to offer them in addition to the epoxies we have offered for many years.  This way clubmakers can save money by one-stop shopping rather than buying heads, shaft and grip from us and purchasing their favorite epoxy from another source.  This also gives “newbies” in the craft of clubmaking another affordable choice.

Brampton Epoxy

Slow setting epoxy
There are three different Brampton epoxies classified by how fast they cure and can be hit safely.  The first is a slow or 20 hour cure epoxy.  The PRO-FIX 20/20 is a great all-around epoxy with very high impact resistance and excellent adhesion on any materials a clubmaker will encounter in their shop.  We have this in two sizes; two 4 ounces bottles or an 8 ounce kit and two 8 ounces bottles or a 16 ounce kit.

Quick setting epoxies
There are two fast-setting epoxies – one being a quick cure and other a rapid cure.  What is the difference? The PRO-FIX 5&10 Rapid Cure has a playable strength within 10-20 minutes at standard room temperature (68-77º F).  For instance, allow a 30% increase in time per 10º temperature decrease. It is available in one size packaged in a double-barreled dispenser.

The PRO-FIX Quick Cure was developed to give a little longer working time than the Rapid Cure. It has a gel time of 5-8 minutes and a playable strength within 20-30 minutes at standard room temperature.  You’ll need to allow longer time for colder temperatures.  We offer this in two convenient sizes; two 2 ounce bottles or 4 ounce kit and two 4 oz. bottles for an 8 ounce kit.

All three of these epoxies has a 1:1 mixture by volume and is easy to clean up.  The slow and quick cure dry amber and the rapid cure dries white. These also allow for shaft removal without excessive heat.

UNEEKSCRAPER
A play on words for “unique” scraper, this handy tool removes grip tape and even those stubborn Mylar decals lickety-split off of any type of shaft without harming it.  Here is a quick video to show how it works.

Brampton Clear Demo TapeClear Demo Tape
For any clubfitting or pro shop can’t be without a roll of durable polyethylene plastic tape that’s perfect for protecting club heads from damage during demos and fittings.  It comes in a 3 inch wide by 18 yard roll with perforations every 4” and only adds a mere one gram to the head.  If you do the math that comes to 162 sheets and will last a long time.  It is the perfect size to put on today’s driver to try them out and not see any usage or those “idiot” marks on the front edge of the crown.  You can peel it right off.  One thing of note, if you use a launch monitor to measure launch and spin, the demo tap can give you some erroneous readings.

    Ouch!

    “This way clubmakers can save money by one-stop shopping rather than buying heads, shaft and grip from us and purchasing their favorite epoxy from another source.” I wish I had known this a week ago, when I reordered epoxy. I ordered a favorite putter head from another source, realized it was time for epoxy and added that to the order.

    I like the Brampton 20-hour, and will get it from Hireko next time I need to reorder.

    As for the Uneekscraper, looks like an Arnie’s Clubs tool. I have one I got from him; works really well. Very inventive tool guy. But you don’t need to clamp the shaft; You can set the open end over some sort of “stud” — nail or screw in the side of the bench, for instance — and work toward that end.
