    LOL, love your post
    I know i'm taking my own thread off topic here, but FWIW, as for your last sentence, my old Irish golfing buddy would have a little "harsher" favorite quote: "getting old is not for wimps". That was 30 years ago, when he was 80 and I was 50, and I had no clue why he was telling me that - NOW at 76, I definitely know

    I have tried the Dollarama epoxy($1.50) and was very surprised how well it works, and how easy it was to break the bond with 15 seconds from a propane torch held 3/4" away from the hosel.

    most every name-brand 25mm dispenser of epoxy is a ridiculous 12dollars( tax not included)

    Picked it up and shaft was broken and grip was cut
    . Took it home and noticed it , went back in the store and manager basically said I was lying. Said no way they did that. . I said how do you know were you hear watching him fix it

    At this point I was pretty much yelling .
    said so your saying Im just making this up .
    he said well im not saying that put people do come back and pretend that we did stuff .

    i said ya sure cause thats what Im doing
    pretty much said I was **** out of luck
    Odd that Burlington would mess up like that. Why would the grip have been cut when the work order was for the iron head to be glued back on
    Was the head, when you brought it in detached from the shaft, or was it just loose?
    As for the shaft, was it broken or crushed?
    I have to assume it was graphite shaft. Maybe your order got mixed up as a re-grip?

    most every epoxy meets or exceeds the required shear strength needed for golf. The trouble with some epoxy lies in the disassembly because some require more heat to break the bond for pulling the head loose.
    This is not a problem with steel shafts,but the extra heat can destroy the tip of graphite shafts.

    Yup service at Burlington is bad. Should have seen this glue job they did on a putter head for me. Looked like a 4 year old was building his first model in

    i understand but i think you missed the point. Was moreso a warning for others not to follow suit if theyre moderate swing speed. Theres a difference between bond strength and lap sheer strength. If i were to glue my heads with gorilla glue epoxy i can guarantee id have a failure.
