I like the  golf works quick set epoxy.  Less than 5 minutes set time and easy to uninstall with low heat.

Do you find that the quick set epoxy (curing time less than an hour) requires less heat to remove than the 24 hour stuff?

Yup.  Which is great for graphite shafts.

The breakdown temperature of the epoxy is ingredient dependent....it does not matter on the curing time.....Ideally you want something that will breakdown at 250 deg F or less......The heat lamp ensures a more solid bonding process, and seems to prevent tiny air bubbles from forming in the epoxy.....my favs is the 3M DP810 epoxy and I employ shafting beads and a heat lamp......its just warm not hot...I don't use a hot box  ( box lined with aluminum foil ). 

Some of the epoxies out there have extremely high break down temps and those are horrible for graphite shafts, you basically damage the shaft before the epoxy will break down....The lower the temp the better in terms of salvaging graphite shafts.  On a side note, the 7D shafts have some of the strongest tips I have ever seen on a graphite shaft.

For graphite shafts,  I just use the quick cure stuff .. .so it's ready within 30 minutes.     
For steel shafts,  I have had heads come loose with the quick cure epoxy so I only use the 24 hour cure.

Lamp is just to give it a warmer curing eviornnment, correct?

I'm told when heated to a certain temp for a certain period, it hastens the curing process.  Can't remember the temp and duration.

Those are shock dampening Styrofoam like shaft inserts?

Iím in the same boat. You should try out the Freiheit 18 hybrid. Maybe not Ryoma long but gets the ball out there.

I am almost hopeless with FW so have to rely on UT for my 2nd or 3rd shot.  While I haven't try most to the UT mentioned here, the only one that gives me the consistency and distance is the Ryoma UT.  They used to be a hook machine for me but now I know how to control them with a high draw.

DO any of you guys use a halogen lamp to help the curing process along ?
