I might use the persimmon more this Summer since I had moved to a shorter track to enjoy my Apex and Persimmon woods.
I know by the time the rain start to fall, I will pack up the persimmon and the blades until next season.
Question for all of you guys whom have done a lot of the persimmon restorations.
If the driver as no visible damage , just a little wear from put into play, and the fairway woods have a little more wear because of the turf contact.
No repair needed.
What do I need to do after cleaning them and drying ? My father used to give it a coating of polyurethane after lightly sanded it down..... I can't find the brand he used. It was a very thick material and took more than a couple of days to completely dry up.
What do you guys do if no major repair is needed to keep your favorite persimmon in top shape ?
I had a couple of the drivers which I felt were out of commission after 4-5 years and a couple of restoration. They also felt a little lighter in weight after the material aged and dried up a little.
I often heard the horrifying story of changing temperature and moisture level are detrimental to natural wood products. How long is the playability of persimmon woods before it'll suffer more chance of damaging during normal play.
