Lost its sparkle
« on: October 15, 2020, 05:18:06 AM »
As much as I like Basileus, their silver plating is unfortunately not durable at all.  Sure, the shaft is maybe 5 years old but it should not peel this bad.  Doesn't affect play of course.

Itís designed so every 5 years a layer comes off and you get a whole new finish!!!

I hope mine doesn't do that, although everyone who has picked up my driver thought so anyways  ::)

Not sure where you're located but it could be the warm humid climate here.. I've seen it on several shafts.  That said, on the run of the mil basilues shafts and not the AAA series.  Maybe a higher grade plating for the AAA?
