  3. It's a nice thought but the reality is that the course is open a limited amount of time and now they want to take another week away from member play? Same reason numerous private clubs aren't interested in hosting tour events.
  4. A number of years ago I repainted my 3-wood to match my favorite college basketball team color, Carolina Blue and it came out alright but I wanted to take it a little further with my driver. As you will see in the pictures a few things happened with this project: 1) I got in a hurry and work got sloppy 2) I got carried away with the design. I was really just seeing what I could do with a roll of tape and can of spray paint because at the end of the day I can (and will soon) strip the paint again and go in a totally different direction. I really like the flat black, no gloss look everywhere from drool worthy Lamborghini's to my mountain bike so that's what I decided to try. I think next I'm going to re-shaft with a Graffaloy Blue shaft that is ironically White in color and paint the head with a high gloss blue. Here's what I have for now.
  5. So I've been really inspired by some of the work that I've seen on this thread and as someone who doesn't like having the same looking bag I decided to get to work on a few projects. The first is an old Ping O-Blade that I haven't used in a lot of years but may start back with this season. It just needed a little face lift so I took a sanding block to it starting with 350, then 600, 1000 and finally wet sanded with 1000 grit. The face came out nice but I really like the definition in the lettering on the back flange.
  6. My apologies if you've answered this before but what products did you use on this project?
  7. From his house he is less than a 20 minute drive from the Ritz Carlton, the Bear's Club which is 350k initiation and where Michael Jordan has recently and famously build a house, and Seminole which is arguably one of the best courses in the country. Why practice on a small plot of land which you have instant access to those ammenities.

      The Anser to your query is the 913D2 which you will be able to afford after you save money by buying the discounted Razr that Fits nicely in your bathroom next to your guitar AMP.

      X-Mas gift to yourself is a great idea. Absolutely. But take your time, X-Mas is in our hearts year around.

  10. Vince, Great to see you getting some publicity on here, never had a bad experience with your company. Currently I'm hitting the original Krank Rage with an Aldila Proto by You x-stiff, tipped 1/2" with a final shaft length of 44.5". I don't stretch as much as I used to and don't play as much as I used to but I'm still hitting the ball every bit as far, maybe farther, and much straighter than before. I plan to upgrade to the Rage Black and perhaps a hybrid so I can finally get rid of my 2-iron. Full disclosure, I've always been a non-OEM guy. I'm 6'5" and started building my own clubs when I was 17, I've never been a scratch golfer but personally always thought that my Maltby forged irons performed as well as anything else I'd played and I could customize, and I enjoy the work. I have always looked around for unique clubs that may provide a cost benefit or simply a niche club that an OEM may not look into making. I say this because that mentality led me to Krank 3+ years ago and ultimately to purchasing the original Rage in spring of 2010. I love it! Nothing better than driving a short par 4 or having an iron into a par 5 then having people ask if the club is legal. Great company, great product, and they even make a white version for those who still have the need to fit in with the cool kids. Scott
