In doing some research on the MX-300s, I saw a pretty sweet pic (below) in which someone removed the badges from the back of the clubs. Added with the paintfill & ferrules, it looked awesome. I'm sure it's not that difficult, but does anyone have experience doing something like this? Any insight on the process would be greatly appreciated!

A pick and a little head applied to loosen the tape and off she peels. It really is that simple.

In The Bag
Driver: TaylorMade SLDR 430 12* (w/ toe screw) w/ Project X Handcrafted LZ16 
Strong 3 wood: Taylormade SLDR TS 13* with Aldila NV 75X
3 Hybrid: Adams Super LSP 18* (bent to 17*) w/ KBS Tour Hybrid S flex tipped 1/2"
4 Hybrid: Adams Super LSP 20* (bent to 21*) w/ KBS Tour Hybrid S flex tipped 1/2"
5-7I : Tour Issued Adams CB2 w/ Dynamic Gold Tour issue S400 hardstepped 1x
8-GW: Tour Issued Adams CB1 w/ Dynamic Gold S400 hardstepped 1x

SW: 56* Cleveland CG12 (CC grooves) w/ Dynamic Gold Spinner
LW: 60* Cleveland CG12 (CC grooves) w/ Dynamic Gold Spinner
Putter: Mannkrafted Widebody Rattler 34", 71* lie, 4* loft

Have a ton of back-ups in all categories, but there are always 14 clubs in the bag that differ depending on the course and set-up. Bomb and gouge. Yes, I'm a club gigolo.

Yup. I actually did this to an MX-300 myself. It's really just a thick sticker, nothing complicated about removing it at all.

There is a bit of mass associated with the little badges, so the headweights of the clubs could be off a little. Not enough for me to notice, but some people are a bit picky..

There aren't 2 grams there, which is what it would take to effect the swingweight. Together, they weigh in just over a gram. At least every one I've seen weighed do.

Looks nice without the badges. I think it would be a good idea to keep the old badges in separate marked bags and preserve them so you will always have the option to re-attach with epoxy if you change your mind at a later date, or want to sell the set to a picky buyer.

I believe the ones on Ping irons are specially weighted so that each club is the perfect weight, to make up for imperfections in the casting process. I think they are also different weights for different irons to ensure a better progression of the COGs. That said, you probably still wouldn't feel much of a difference.

    Spent this afternoon in a Golf----- checking out the equpiment. Can't afford to buy a bag of tees, so all we can do is dream. Used to do this in sporting goods stores when I was 12 , too. Now I'm 54. Nothing was really changed. All this great stuff and no money to buy it.

    Why do manufacturers put an iron equivalent on hybrids when the distances seem so much greater than irons. Surely it'd be better to just give lofts. Incidentally, perhaps irons should have degrees of loft on them instead of numbers too!
