Glued some fairway wood heads more than 30 years ago with Canadian Tire LePage epoxy and still using them, good as new.But stuff like gorilla glue epoxy has a strong adhesion strength but poor lap shear strength. A high SS player will likely have a failure with hardware store epoxy.

    Mr22putt:
    Hey, thanks so much for this note, really appreciated
    And yes, i came across other people's comments and identical to yours about the "unforgiving" aspect of the SLDR. Sp all I can say is "we'll see" LOL. I better have some painters tape with me to put on the drivers face to see where i'm making contact.
    And on your comment about "lofting up" from 12*, i'll start with 12*, see the trajectories and go from there. IIANM, the second gen. of TM tips allows for 2* adjustment ???
    All best and cheers

Cannot wait to glue on them the TM tips i got from Ebay for $5 and finally try my SLDR, 12* driver before Season ends. Hope the head doesn't fly with the ball on the first swing
    Cheers to all !!!
    Have fun with your new toy...FYI...the SLDR is a very unforgiving head when hit off center.....and because your swing speed is slow...I'd still loft it up even with a 12* head....enjoy.

    Haven't done it yet, waiting for delivery of Gorilla Epoxy from Amazon tomorrow, i hope (half price on a special, i day deal offer at $5). But, and again, FWIW, i glued couple of fairway woods about 25 years ago, and still using them to this day - and I used the Lepage Epoxy from Canadian Tire. I may be wrong, but it was something like $1.99 IIRC
