We love the persimmon woods because the color and the wood grains and the durability of the material.
However, anyone has thoughts about the golf clubs made with the laminated wood ?
Persimmon heads been out for more than a century, I believe. How long has the laminated woods been out ? From the 80's ?
I always question the claim of man made verses Nature made. In construction, there been the use of 2x4,2x6 and larger wood products made with pieces and put together with resin ( epoxy ). This is quite common in residential construction, and the builders I talked to assured me that the extended wood is better than the one piece wood the nature provided. They claim it's stronger and less warping in the future.
I question the resin/epoxy they used to glue the pieces together be able to stay strong beyond 3-4 decades.
I was in shock when I walked in the construction sites and discovered even the multi million dollar home site use the wood products glued together from pieces.
