puttnfool I had a local guy bust one of the copperhead blade irons I wanted bent weak, as I remember they were cast carbon steel, but ??
I would ask around locally and find out who does bending and have a conversation with the shop and go from there. I have to drive 40 mins if I want bending, so I try and have it done by the manufacturer/etc. This guy had Hireko items for sale in his shop, so I instantly felt like I could connect with him....he bent several clubs for me, cast mostly, but also forged, no problem. I think it was 6.50 a club which is high, but IMO worth it for piece of mind!
