tungsten pommel = fail

I got my new leon paul tungsten pommel.
Didn't work out so good on my epee. First I was thinking the whole thing was tungsten. What they did was have a steel pommel and then the back part of it was tungsten that screwed on.
It also didn't have a feature I want in a pommel which was a way to use a tool to lock it down like an inside hex hole or a hole through the end you could slip a screwdriver through to turn it.
When I tried to hand tighten it I wasn't able to get it down all the way. I tried to use a wrench but it was chewing up the metal pretty bad.
Guess I'm going to use the steel pommels and let the tungsten pommels be. Seemed like a good idea, I'm glad I only bought one instead of buying like my original thought.
