    Really like the look of the new small cb. The muscle will transition perfectly for a blade/cb combo set.



    Shafts arrived today. Now I just need a set of heads to go with them : )

    Looks great. So this would be a progressive set with varying muscle depths to help create a preferred flight/trajectory?

    Finished pics of new CB.



    We can facilitate just about any finish that our clients want for their project but most of the heads we make are raw.



    The clubs can be made with literally any amount of offset that the client wants and are hand ground to exact specs, shape, grind topline etc. Just about anything you want we can do, especially with a MB.



    S25.




    Ari,



    Can you drop me a PM with pricing for 5I to 9I heads only pls. What finish is the one in the pic and what other finishes do you have please.

    I love the complete range of options, but I wish that there actual models to view to serve as starting points.

    If I were to contact NCW, I wouldn't begin to know how to tell them what I wanted.



    A good, informative website is absolutely essential for direct marketing, and they, unfortunately, don't have one.



    It's super amateurish, as a matter of fact.

    I could be very wrong, but I doubt they are looking for that much exposure or could even handle the volume given the nature of how their products are made.

    My guess is that you're completely right.



    I'm personally suspicious of a bush league web page, though.



    It's hard to have confidence in getting the super premium product

    for which one is going to pay a very premium price

    when the craftsmen are content to be represented by

    such a shabbily conceived webpage.



    It's hard to believe that they would purposely put up a red flag like that just to limit demand.



    More likely, they're just not media savvy people.



    The old Scratch website was much more professional. (I think some of the same people were involved.)

    So was the short-lived Kenneth Smith website way back when websites were brand new.

    The NCW website is really a mess.

    Having gone through the process of ordering I can state that every bit of information (and more) was provided by Patrick when I reached out. There were an overwhelming number of images provided. I was professionally steered when I needed to be.



    There are many pictures on the NCW Instagram page, but many more that can be shared.



    I've been duped by many 'professional' websites. Definitely only a part of the picture.

    Ari's participation concerns me.



    I used to play in a crazy pitch and putt course league which was admittedly more about beer drinking and stupid betting than it was about serious golf.

    Nevertheless, I was really into this league and wanted to buy a complete set of expensive custom wedges to give myself an edge there.



    Scratch had all the options that I wanted except one. I wanted highly aggressive, cover-shredding, non-conforming, sharp box grooves.

    Remember, this was not USGA sanctioned golf.



    Ari told me that Scratch could do this, but would not do it with anything but raw finished heads.

    I told him that I didn't care if the grooves were machined after plating and were going to rust.

    He still refused my order at a time, it turned out, when his company was about to do a header and needed the business.



    If NCW is equally indifferent about honoring rather simple requests, that's wouldn't be a good sign.

    Not saying they would be, but Ari is involved.

    It sure sounds like they dont need your business or headache. Why dont you have someone else make you a non-conforming wedge?

    ****! Ouch..





    Oh..by the way. Totally agree with you about needing a high quality website for ANY business these days.



    There are a gazillion college kids studying IT and graphic design that would love spiff that thing up for a few thousand bucks or for trade out. Offer them a set of irons and let them go to work.



    It’s definitely unprofessional to have a shoddy website in this day and age. Too easy and cheap to do better.

    Why would you side with them whose job it was to provide custom requests?

    It was a set of non-conforming wedges for special circumstances, not one.

    And it was a very simple request.

    The old Kenneth Smith company could have done it standing on their heads.



    Scratch folded like a cheap accordion,

    and if NCW takes your attitude while charging premium prices,

    they'll fold, too. (I'm hoping that they don't and that they prosper.)

    You have to remember who is making their clubs and how many majors they have to their credit. People that understand golf history don’t need a very complicated website to understand that they don’t need a simple form to fill out, they can make anything for a true customer who understands the quality of what they are getting. I say the more simple the site, the more I know they don’t have to BS to get buyers.

    Ah well its obvious you just have an axe to grind. NCW is doing just fine without a flashy website. They have quite the backlog of orders. I would argue some sleek, over designed website would be off brand. This company makes classic design inspired irons and persimmon woods, "modern" isn't in the game plan.

    If you want an illegal wedge, buy an illegal wedge. If you want a custom wedge that has illegal groove, buy some in a raw finish with a knurled face and have them plated. Or don't. Leaving them raw would be best.

    I'm sorry but this is a completely ridiculous post. Scratch did not make clubs with non conforming grooves. We were not setup to do so all of our grooves were done in Japan not in house. I never told you that and changing the depth and width of the grooves is anything but simple.



    I sorry you do not approve of the job I did with the golf club company I started in my garage with less than $10k and ran for over 12 years during some very tough financial times. I'm sure you would have done alot better....



    Either way this is not a thread about Scratch, it's about National Custom Works which is a completely different company.



    As for our website we will have a better one up in the near future. We are SO BUSY right now we are concentrating on making clubs and getting a second shop setup.

    Ari,



    If you get a chance sometime, you mind posting a pic from address with new cavity back against an older AR-1 or EZ-1 style head (maybe just stock if possible before any extra grinding is done, would it be closer in profile to AR-1 or EZ-1 or maybe in the middle)? The new design looks really good, simple and sleek, nice lines of the back from the pics.

    Ari,



    If you get a chance sometime, you mind posting a pic from address with new cavity back against an older AR-1 or EZ-1 style head (maybe just stock if possible before any extra grinding is done, would it be closer in profile to AR-1 or EZ-1 or maybe in the middle)? The new design looks really good, simple and sleek, nice lines of the back from the pics.




    Yes I am out of town until next week but I will post when I get back.



    It's closer to the old AR1 than the EZ1.

  • I'm sorry but this is a completely ridiculous post. Scratch did not make clubs with non conforming grooves. We were not setup to do so all of our grooves were done in Japan not in house. I never told you that and changing the depth and width of the grooves is anything but simple.




    I'm sorry, Ari, but we did have that exchange of communications.

    I doubt if you'd remember every correspondence that you had at Scratch, but I only had that one so I remember it very well.



    As for changing the depth and width of grooves, I found a local machine shop that has nothing to do with golf that can do it just fine.

    It can't be all that complicated.



    The IRON FACTORY--I don't know if they're still in business--did it as well.



    Anyway, that's all in the past and I honestly wish NCW the best of luck.



    But my question is this: will NCW accommodate the kind of special requests that I made to Scratch?

    That's really all that I want to know.



    Again, good luck.
