I wanted to see how metal felt in my TMBR Lovejoy so I made a titanium axle for it. Still responsive with a 2 penny gap. Plays smooth. I kind of miss the string feed back but it is cool that it doesn’t have the wood vibe.
I made the axle so I can throw full strength with out scorching. I needed a way to eek out a little more spin time while still being fixed axle.
