Hi guys.

Wonder if anyone knows where to buy this 'stiff arm'? Its accessory that you put in your bag to protect the club head from breaking due to impact *airline handling, etc. Going for golf trip and like to keep my kit in 1 piece.

Thanks!

Bro, I bought one of those stiff arms when I was in the states. Mine is quite multifunctional, it duals as a warming up tool, camera stand, putting aid tool and houses my allignment sticks. It's not cheap, RM400. I can send you a photo if you like.
A cheaper option would be for you to buy a 47-48inch (driver+head=45inch) PVC pipe from the hardware store it will cost you around RM4. You will need to buy individual iron covers to avoid bag chatter. Some golf bag covers come with padding for the clubs, but they don't come cheap.

Thanks. Wow rm400 is expensive. Yup some of the forum did say alternative is to use pvc pipes. You make a T at the top so that it helps wt support. I think will go that route as ordering from US will be hassle at the moment. But I wonder if pvc pipes are strong enough. Need to visit the diy store to find out.

It's $26 here in the US. I'll be in KL this December so let me know if you want me to bring one over. In fact you can have mine since I won't be taking my golf bag back with me to the States.

Hi Evan,

Since you're going to 'let go' your own stiff arm, I'll be happy to have that. Let me know the price, no rush tho as it's still long way to December. I won't be able to use it though since my trip to Jakarta is end of this month. But it will be useful for future trips. What we do is we tend to share our travel gears with our golf buddies so that we don't need to spend much on gears. I may able to lend this 'stiff arm' to my golf buddies as a return for them lending me their travel bag for this trip.

Thanks again. Do buzz me when you're coming here.

Will do. I'll be in KL December 8 to 12 and then again 20 to 23. I'll be going to Vietnam in between for some more golf. If you want to catch a round of golf or two while I'm in KL, let me know. I've never golfed in Malaysia so I could use some pointers. Right now I have a Sunday round setup with Magic(Mike) on Sunday December 9 which I cannot wait.

If for some reason we cannot get in touch, you can pick it up at my mom's house. She lives near the Mines resort. Don't worry about the price, if it does its job in protecting my clubs then it would have paid for itself already.

Thanks,
Evan

Yeap, just bought one on Monday from RGT. RRP is RM145.00, there was a discount of 25% if I am not mistaken.
