A bit more progress!! All of the machining of the main body is done, just need to put the loft & face machining on. Currently 380g but hoping to get it down to about 330-340g so I can use the weig

Hi all I'm a newbie on here as I'm getting back into golf after 15 years away. Great timing as my local course is closed due to the UK lockdown but I've squeezed in a round and had some practice.

How does my toe hang look? 1st pic is with 2 x 6g weights. 2nd is 1 x 6g heel, 1 x 2g in toe. Approx 35° and 27°. Wouldn't think 4g could make so much difference 🙂  Shaft just arrived

Yup, technology took over in a big way from the 60’s.

Was talking to the pro yesterday and he's popping the shaft in for me. He seems really keen on me getting a couple done for demo's in the shop. Need a RH version of this one and he mentioned a more true 'blade style'. I'm already working on that one, 304SS this time.

He said we could use the HMT on his GC2 to help work on how the ball comes off the face and we'd be able to get some data which he could then use to alter loft angles/face milling etc to optimise it. 

I might be able to make some to sell 🙂

Wow, does that thing look great!  You said something in a previous post about boring people, but you sure don't have to worry about that.  Keep the updates coming...with lots and lots of pictures.  I'm so jealous that everything I see has a green tint.   (Could be the color-blindness, but I'm going to attribute it to jealousy.)

a boring people post might get 3-5 replies. Obviously this has grabbed the attention/interest of enough people to validate that this is FAR from boring 😄

Why not!!
Great the Pro is working with you.
Guys like Lajosi, Gene Nead, Byron & Xenon (Lumpy) all had an idea and went with it.

do you have any background in physics or know a partner who might? Obviously you have the design thing mastered! I'm sure you've thought it out already but it would be super cool to come up with a unique and functional milling performance tech angle. Evenroll, Sik, Cleveland, Ping, Scotty, etc all have some kind of unique performance aspects designed into their face milling. Some for forgiveness, others to help with rolling the ball.. or both. How cool would it be to come up with some kind of patentable tech that you could tag to the marketing? 😀

Keep rockin man this is a really cool thread to follow!

Thanks again for all of the kind comments guys, really appreciated and I'm glad I'm not boring you all 😄.

As the course is closed the nearest I could do to test was a 15' putt across my landing at home. Carpet is a bit lumpy and nowhere near as fast as the greens at my home course but was able to get a feel for how it putts and I'm well happy.

Seems consistent for distance. I tried centre/toe/heel hits and all were very close. Tried 3-6' putts, again, fairly consistent feel & distance. So far so good...
