    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.




    I know what our manufacturing limitations were and I would not have told you we could do something that we could not have done. Plain and simple.



    I'm not disputing that milling grooves would not be that complicated for a machine shop. Scratch was not a machine shop we did not have a CNC mill. Everything we did was ground and worked by hand. So again I would not have told you we could do something that we could not do.



    NCW similarly is not a machine shop we can't mill illegal grooves. In addition if we started to manufacture clubs with illegal grooves the USGA would start to consider all of our clubs illegal unless the specific clubs were tested which would cause a major issue w our clients on Tour and our clients that play high level competitive golf. I'd suggest using your local machine shop if that's something your looking for.

    We are running a little behind right now due to extremely high demand and Don being away from the grinder a little more than expected over the last couple months. We are all hard at work to get caught back up Don especially.



    Anyone waiting on their project can email Patrick or I for an update.

    Nice shape, plus being able to modify offset and toe shape etc. is an cool option as well.

    We'd do it for a lot less than that. I've done hundreds of logos, websites, etc. Taught web design at a major university, and have over 20 years experience. It's only about $1K all in to get an entire branding package including a site and intro video with us, and our work is as good as it gets. Cheers. image/biggrin.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':D' />

    What a company. I reached out on IG tonight and had a great conversation with them. They didn’t have to give me the time of day to the extent they did but I’m very impressed with the work and customer service. I know that this will be dream set and really good to one day afford a set in 5-PW.



    After seeing their page I’ll never look at Irons the same!

    So as a person who doesn’t have social media and relies on the WRX community to figure everything out. What’s it roughly run to get a set 4-PW done and then wedges after that?

    Anybody with orders placed know how far behind they are on getting orders out? I was hopeful I would have mine by now.
