Hi, anybody knows where can I find this in Singapore?
Is there any golf fitting shop doing this?
Or if I order from USA, can any golf fitting shop do for me?

I attached a link for more details.

Surprising these 'air-con insulation' looking sponge works!

Was feeling some tingy feeling on the elbows after I switched to DGS300, so I decided to insert the ProSofts at the butt of the shafts. The 'sore' at the elbow went away, psychological? But who cares as long as it do not affect the feel or affect the swing weight.

Was contemplating sensicore inserts but they are expensive and add couple of grams to the shafts.

Ever tried cork plugs in the hosel and middle part of the shaft? That works too. And cheap.

Hey,

a few years ago when i was still a newbie in Golf.
I met an American Pro in our country, Rick Gibson, in our nearby Pro Shop.

I was inquiring about TT sensicore....
and rick told me he put plastic straw inside his steel shaft, accdg to him it works.

I haven't tried it out, but I saw him doing it for his irons

I'm sure there are many ways to dampen vibrations for shaft but don't use Vibra-X from Golfsmiths - it affect the impact feel and its difficult to remove.

Whatever you put into the shaft, ensure that it doesn't add additonal weight (affecting the swing weight), does not move after installation, easy to install & remove. For the various commercial inserts, different insertion depth are recommended.

Because it's one piece thus no gaps in between to cause vibrations and recoils internally???

Ha...ha..... I don't hit sweet enough to prevent the vibration........

Anyway, I think it helps to reduce vibration from taking 'divots' off the the hard driving range mat

yeah, you will always get someone who will do something like sound-proofing the ferrari to mute the feedback, same as forged irons with damping inserts in the shafts.

would you?

Me can't afford any car of that price but I always tot a supercar was meant to be driven a certain way, not some sort of a leisure cruise trying to mute the engine and xos sound and listening to nice music. Laughing

I was kinda interested in dowelling my irons but I gave up the idea becos it might be a tedious process which I may not be happy with the outcome.

A good forged iron to me is soft enuff. Any dampener of sort might dull that feel and not give me the necessary feedback that I wanna know when I hit it off centre abit. Same reason why I choose a non-insert heel-toe weight putter as opposed to a high MOI mallet putter.

OH, so forged irons are not advised to fit damping inserts.
True? I was wondering how to reduce some pain on my left wrist.

Reduce pain on left wrist? Simple, stop playing and let your wrist recover.

Well, ive heard that it just dampened the vibration on mis hits, and that helps if you are hitting about 400 balls a day. Im sure you can still feel whether or not you have good contact on the hits, no? Would BFG be able to install the prosoft insert for me?
