Help me design new headcovers

Recommended Posts

Sold a bunch of clubs and realized I'm not in the market for any other clubs at this point.  I've decided to splurge and go with new headcovers for my driver and hybrids.  Need driver and 4 hybrid covers.

 

I've been talking with Bestgrips and I've got the leather picked out (blue of course) but I'm stuck with what to get on them.  I could always go generic and do numbers or something similar, but I want it to be unique.

 

My first idea was something around Transformers.  Get the Autobot and Decepticon logo's on the driver, then a different Transformer on each hybrid.  I'm hitting a wall with finding the right images of the transformers for the hybrid covers though.

 

Another idea was scrap the transformers and get a different superhero logo on each one.  Like Avengers logo, Thor hammer, Spiderman mask, Ironman logo etc...

 

 

So spit balling ideas, anybody got anything cool I should consider?

What about going with the four elements, or the four horsemen of the apocalypse? 

You could go subtle, using the fantastic 4 font, but number 1-4. Or just do them all as 4 with different graphics to represent the different characters.

I think something to commemorate your favorite GolfSpy Forum Co-Directors.  Maybe a silhouette of each of us...

I can see that now but then again I am fortunante they make a Stewie headcover and I have one. One thing though if you go with the MGS Staff theme make sure there are no small children around when you take your clubs out it might terrorize them. Remember you guys have posted your pics on here before  :)

Voltron would be awesome. Maybe you could arrange the lions in the bag to look like the robot too. Putter cover for "And I'll form the head."

I need to pull the trigger on some new headcovers soon, so many options out there. I like what BestGrips did with the limited edition covers with blue carbon fiber leather and embroidered white stars, those were very cool. Another idea is to use roman numerals instead of numbers, adds a different look.

I like the transformers theme actually.

 

Driver: half autobot/half decepticon since it's one club that can be your best friend/worst nightmare.

 

Fairway: autobot, the good guy in the bag

 

Hybrid: decepticon, just when you think all is well, it goes left on you and never comes back.

Transformers? Are you the dad or the kid in the picture?

I don't know how old Hckymeyer is, but at 33, I grew up watching the gen1 Transformers shows, and the animated movie was made before I could likely remember it. So even if he's ten years older than me, that'd put him in the right demographic to have been a lifelong fan of the series. I like the idea of tying in childhood nostalgia.

Just turned 36 a week ago. Grew up watching Transformers and still love the show. My 4yr old is also currently obsessed with them so it works on both levels.

Ya I'm in my thirties too but never became a fan of dungeons and dragons or transformers or most of those other cartoon things. I used to like gi Joe's as a kid but never had the figurines. I was always too consumed with sports, so I don't really understand the attachment.

 

Wouldn't even consider that stuff now as an adult and to be honest with you, if I were playing with a guy who had something like that I'd definitely think he was the 40 year old virgin guy!

 

The beauty of it all is that you can order whatever you want and are free to pick whatever because my opinion doesn't matter.
