    It is more full at the tip than most ETs that I’m familiar with.

    I am not sure. I believe it may be the initials of the individual who came up with the design.

    Here's a pic of an RL cut that was sold on S&F last year.

    Thanks, JGH. Mine is not quite the same. I have a 28 that runs like a 30 and a 26 that runs like a 27. Both come out of the hole very aggressively.

    Thanks, fellows. I am glad to know what I have. The 26 runs like a 27 and the 28 runs like a 29 or loose 30.
