Rickochet I'm currently using Dr's Best Curcumin, but mainly because I saw a large bottle on sale. I've used Zyflamend with good results too, but it seemed like they may have changed the formulation of that. I can't say I've seen any ill effects, but yes there can be. I've read anti-inflammatory supplements can make you more prone to sunburn and I may have noticed that....although I'm half Irish and have to watch out any way. I try to use the supplement(s) for 3 weeks and take a week off. I've read "cycling" them can be better so that they keep working for you.
I used ProSoft inserts for years and I think they do help a bit. Certain steel shafts always seemed smoother like Rifles, KBS Tour and Nippon. Even with a FLO'd Nippon shaft, ProSoft insert and Winn grip though I think graphite does a better job of cushioning the blow. I used to jam some of that Sorbothane down in the hosel as well. That stuff does transform some force into heat apparently.
I agree about the price of graphite although FST Pro shafts are currently the only bargain steel IMO. KBS is pretty close in price to UST Recoil. I decided to take a break from club building and got fitted almost 2 years ago. I loved the feel and performance of the Recoil 110 so I took a chance. So far I'm very happy.
