Very nice Thumbsup

How have you found the 22mm Silvertip Grade A set at the loft height (54mm) you chose?

Take a look at the first thread in the post and you will see how I worked it and the balance issue out.

Hi

Do you mean this thread?

If yes, I don't see where you talk about your actual experience (thoughts) of the 22mm Silvertip Grade A set at the chosen loft height (54mm). Please correct me if I'm wrong on this.

Take care, Mike

From the thread.
"I chose a 22 mm Silvertip knot which had a loft of 61 mm from the base of the knot. I took the handle and drilled down some more to provide room for two nickels for ballast and to reduce the loft down to reduce the potential for floppiness."

I drilled down the handle internally to insert two nickels and clear an additional 7 mm to reduce the overall loft down from 61 mm (in its received form) to 54 mm at final measurement when inside the handle.

I have been using this for a week and it has no floppiness. Strong lather builder and soft to the touch.

I hope this helps.
