can't help but think of "COUNTRY CALVIN" working over his McDermott shafts


the truth will set you free, but first it will piss you off

Bell tip shaft - 11-21-2018, 09:18 PM

Best player to use the "bell tip" shaft regularly was Cicero Murphy back in the 60's.
No sure if he played with a Balabushka...maybe.

Iím pretty. Sure that Mizerak used a bell taper on his balabushka.
