Original design inspired by Hogan 53 triple crown set w a twist... Phatty 53' with a curved twist. Hot off the grinder and arrived today. I worked with Ari and Patrick to bring this fantasy set to life. While I always preferred Jeff McCoy's rounded smooth shapes I wanted to work with Don White to do a set. Insta... @nationalcustom

You name it they can do it. Don starts with a raw Japanese head and can add any type of muscle you want. Mixed set 4-6 cb and 7-pw blades with SteelFiber i95. Then 50*, 55* and 60* wedges in DG-s400. Raw finish. New stamps for the numbers are so old school. Love them. Don did some crazy grinds on the blades to make the soles a little wider. Nice blunted leading edge to help from digging to much.

Ferrules are red, blue and cream from Boyd Blade and Ferrule Co... @bbandfco

Wedges Finish and stampings: Raw finish with the National logo in muscle per the Pic. DW initials and numbers in same size as the Dufner. Numbers G, S, L. Add the degrees on the backs... 50º, 55º, 60º.

#, Loft, Length, Lie, Bounce, SW

    Superb set of phatty’s Richard. Really fond of the new small cavity CB as well. An aesthetic improvement over the previous AR1 headshape. I’m somewhere in the queue with a combo set as well. Posts like this only add to the excitement. Thank you for sharing.

    They do look good next to the others. Feel awesome as well. 2 rounds on these and scored really good. Higher CG I think because I am flighting them lower.

    I do to. Makes them more forgiving. I was playing on some fairly soft conditions and felt awesome through the turf.

    Couple things here...

    Richard, you are sick club ho and I LOVE it, I thank you for enjoying golf & golf clubs as much as you do, and contributing to the site with stuff like this!

    This is the exact kind of set I would want from NCW if I was to order a set. I have built a couple sets for other people but never one for myself.

    Have fun with those!

    Proper. Love the BB&F ferrules, as well.

    Thanks... Patrick worked with me on a custom color but when I saw them in person I didn't like the end result so I went with these off his shelf. Love the contract of the old school tradition and the pop fresh colors.

    The wedges are so good

    The feel of the blades are just simply pure.
