Persimmon - OOPS

I have been helping a friend of mine with his game some and I gave him one of my old persimmon woods to try out so we could see where his swing was at for feedback.
He is a younger kid and very strong with tremendous speed through the ball and his swing is coming along nicely.
So he hit a couple of shots to get the feel for persimmon as he had not hit one since he was a little kid bashing around with his dad’s old clubs and then really creamed one and this was the result :astonished: :astonished: :astonished: :astonished:

I guess his strength was too much or the crappy harder balls on the range just didn’t agree with the MacGregor…luckily I have a few more persimmons to play around with
The baseplate is actually bent and almost impossible to move- the force must have been outstanding to not only split the wood but to bent the plate beyond recongition

Do you think MacGregor will replace it if I send it back !!! :smiley: :smiley:

I’d complain they didn’t take into account of the ball advances for the coming 50 years and demand your money back :wink:

Gorillas make nice friends don’t they :laughing: :laughing: :laughing:

Sometimes this forum is better than watching Jerry Springer reruns

Today we cry the unforeseen departure of a fine piece of wood, that left us still young and full of life. What happened to it is unspeakable. Its contorted and torn body will forever be a testimony to the eternal fight between right and wrong. :cry:

Too true Pip, too true :frowning: :wink:

I wonder if that wouldn’t have happened if the block was solid all the way through. That has a cavity built in for weights. In Technology we call that a single point of failure. More evidence why it’s better to stick with wound balls when playing these classics.

I have heard some power hitters have caved in the faces on the hollow titaniums also…

Babe Ruth I heard also had the record for broken bats…

what can you do…

go graphite?
