No More TAX

You thought I meant I had discovered a way to not pay tax.  But no, I meant no more TACKS.

Some of the older bashing sticks will not accept a tack to anchor the grip (for all sorts of obvious reasons).  And I can't be bothered trying to find small tacks anyway.  Up until now, I have finished off grips at top and bottom with PVC electrical tape, and covered with waxed binding.  But am now using "Heatshrink Tubing with Glue Lining 24mm" from Jaycar.  It does the job beautifully (still bind).  About $13 for 1.2 metres.

Have a few clubs, mostly junk, but all playable.

Hey Rob
Great idea
I have a couple of late Spalding woods that have the "plastic sleeve" at the hosel/shaft join.
Had been wondering what I could use to refurb to retain the period look. Might be worth a go I think

Re: No More TAX


Tom Moore has some of the real thing. It's a celluloid film that you soak in acetone and water to soften it, wrap it around the shaft/grip junction, and seal with a drop of acetone.

He tried to sell me some on Sunday - I didn't ask the price.

Gone golfing - be back at dark thirty.
