The bedrock of GolfWRX.com is the community of passionate and knowledgable golfers in our forums, and we put endless trust in the opinions of our GolfWRX members — the most knowledgeable community of golfers on the internet. No other group of golfers in the world tests golf clubs as frequently or as extensively, or is armed with such in-depth information about the latest technology.

So, WRXers, we're asking for your input on the best bespoke golf equipment company. You know the players in the game. The makers of one-offs and limited releases. The instagram sensations and those whose scarce wares are snapped up eagerly at retail and then again on eBay.

Before we get to the polling, however, we'd like you to help us narrow down the shortlist.

Please list your choice. And if you see your choice mentioned already, well, don't mention it, because it's already been counted. In a perfect world, there would be no repeat mentions.

    I guess I'll kick it off with National Custom Works. Some of the sexiest irons you will ever see.

    Tyson Lamb. However, perhaps TOO EXCLUSIVE even for bespoke.

    I think its gotta be SWAG by far. Limited releases but everything sells out within seconds. eBay market is flooded right after release and the FB group has trades going on everyday

    I can really think of only 4 that I think should count. I think putters should be its own category.

    National Customs for sure

    Also I don’t know if this counts but I love the custom shafts by Accra. You can do some pretty amazing color schemes.

    They are owned by true temper now. Far from bespoke. haha. VA customs would be a closer choice based on definition. But even they really do not count.

    I think the shafts/golf was sold/transferred to IST, but they had some weird stuff going on, "laundroid" some sort of foldable laundry machine...

    Miura

    Two other club makers were already mentioned (Artisan and NCW) that fit the bill, so I’ll go with Miura as my contribution.

    Since we’re talking bespoke, they’re absolutely worthy here because you can get custom heads made to your own specs from them - various sole grinds, top line alterations, plating finishes, weights, etc.

    A couple that come to mind from Instagram that mostly do custom putters are Cody James, Compass Golf Co, and Mackmade workshop. Getting a custom done by compass now, prices are great and his welds are amazing. Also go check out Almigos
