we have that here in our country.
Shaft skin looks great on your irons & wedges.
They also have snake skin designs.

But from a afar, your irons & wedges will appear like your using a graphite shaft.

Now the question is, will this bother you?
Or do you want your clubs to look different?

The shaft skin is "heat shrink" plastic
I do not know how it will last though

Thx HybriD & Tituman. Will check it out when I passed by.

The heat shrink plastics sounds like the plastics used on the cloth hanging poles... Razz

I am thinking to put on my putter only

Your welcome.
I think the plastic used is more thinner than the cloth hanging pole.

They are a little thicker than the heat shrink plastic cap bottle seal.

I think the product is from the Golf Channel program "Fore Inventors Only". Winners will get to productize their inventions.

using it to cover my pink shaft. Its very durable. Before instalation it looks like a normal plastic tube. After the hair dryer instalation it will shrink to the shape of the shaft but not perfectly.. Can see quite a few creases (maybe i got no skill) especially near the hosel where the diameter is smaller.. It suits my purpose but it not that pretty to look at. Maybe i will post some pictures (driver in the car now)

I bought them directly from the website and the shipping charges is one rate ,
regardless of how many u order. the shipping is still the same price. so the more the merrier.
I had them on all my irons and drivers and woods and putter shafts.

I will definitely create alot of attention , and those who seen it for the 1st time will
ask u
1) Whats the brand of all your shafts its so colorful
2) Why is it that all your irons have different shaft?

Till now I'm quite happy with it.

The 1st time I install my shaft shin I had crease too, cos I use those normal house hold hair dyer
But I discover have to use those powerful hair dyer rated at 1000 (those use by saloon)

I'm left with only Driver and Putter with Shaft Skin cos I change my iron shaft
and during the removal of old shaft, some of the skin got damage cos theres a need to clamp on the shaft
in order to pull the head out.

I will take some photos tmr.

Please wait

thanks
