I have a hame and an unfinished Diamond Willow stick that I can't wait to finish. I really like what you have done with you 'attitude adjuster'. I'm going to follow to see if you have any other advice on this combination of hame/diamond willow pieces.Not sue why picture did not post above.

I should think you have found the Hames Topper by now, but in the off chance you haven't (or someone found this thread by Googlin') it can be found here at Treeline.Randy, I agree - that is beautiful wood !!
not being a country boy, I had to look up "hames" (two curved pieces of metal or wood forming or attached to the collar of a draft horse, to which the traces are attached).
where in the world did you find a brass one ?? (and where do you find Diamond Willow).
My vote would be on the ball, seems like the neck would get pretty slick.When you walk with a Hames topper does your hand go on the ball or gripping the brass neck? Curious to know, because that would change the stick length needed.
Enquiring minds need to know. Thanks DR
