Keep us updated with your progress either way Dave. I’ve had the same breakage on SS when they hit something hard(ish). I’ve given some local hardwoods a go, but yes, they are heavy as all get out. My only hopes for trad FOC are Kev’s leopardwoods (maybe getting an intentionally underspined but light shaft and building out the strike plate) or bamboo.
