  1. YUP..just got extended another two weeks. Been only open on Oahu for about a month and a half since March. I've now got four new putters, three pairs of shoes and no golf to play!!!! Maybe to kill some time I better get to PM'ing new members again. I remember I'd get a few replies back in the day...and when I'd write back they were shocked I wasn't a BOT! HAHAHA! #golfwrxforlife
  2. I think when we first started we all were pretty much familiar with each others likes and favorites and heavy participators over at BSG. I remember PM'ing you, @HipCheck @Gxgolfer @Zach Heusser aka KascoPro and @Geo aka Beruo for years prior to Golfwrx starting. When Golfwrx started it was our goal not be be like the place we left. We were all hungry for clubs and club information, basically all club hoes not tied to one brand or feature. We wanted to know about everything in golf because the bottom line was we wanted that club that was magical...for real and not just some talk because someo
  3. LOL the BSG days. @easyyy that Cleveland driver took us to bigger and better things and fostered an even greater love and friendship between man of us! Who would have thought in those early days when there was like twenty of us and the forum was a chit chat between us and the newest club we hoed how big the place would grow??!! Got to love it and got to love GolfWRX!!!
  4. That's a pure gamer putter you have there. I'd be careful of not using any scotchbrite pad as you will affect the finish. If it's just those small surface spots, just rub it with oil and it should come off. WD-40 or silicone/gun oil (what I use) will clean it and help prevent corrosion. I dry rag and residue that's left on there after cleaning.
  5. I had a Tad Moore Giraffe ages ago and there aren't many people making long neck putters today and you'd be hard pressed to find a quality one from the past either. If you like it that much, I'd go and get it refinished. There are so many reasonably priced places to have it refinished nowadays, I've sent a few out just because they were keepers for the collection and I wanted to freshen them up.
  6. Just had Kyle @bastainmilled do this one for me. Wanted a longneck to match the toe hang on a Squareback CT I had. It came out perfect! Final weight 353grams with the 5 gram weights.
  7. Richard you've been holding out on me! Where's my text with the newest addition???!!! :D I've been looking at their putters for ages and emailing asking questions. You know me though...I've got twelve ideas and the need for no more putters than you need any! I've been really considering their mid slant neck but can't decide which head or finish or stampings! Congratulations and let me know how the new baby is! :drinks:
  8. Found some old pics...there have been way too many additions but gives you an idea of my hoard of blades. :swoon2:
  9. LOL I haven’t “posed” my putters for a photo shoot in ages. I’ll go look for my blade photo later that I have somewhere although I think I’ve added another ten or so since I last took the family pic. Guys like Zach Heusser help feed my addiction and I do the same with his. He’s got an incredible 8802 collection complete with the Arnold Palmers that I’m totally jealous about! Here’s my custom Tess I had made years ago. Everything behind it is putters.
  10. LOL....I love reading these threads over and over as they come up through the years. Probably one of the most popular questions since GolfWRX.com ever started. I like to see what people think are keepers and what people hoard. I'm on the hoarding end of the scale. I've owned a lot of putters through the years. I've hung on to mostly 8802 styles. Currently own way too many customs, retails and tours as well. Probably more than most can fathom the need to own that much but I figure it this way. I'm old, I'm comfortable in life and if putters are my only vice, I'm pretty good with it. ;)
  11. A friend and I were just talking about putter head weights the other day. Today's modern putters are easily twenty to thirty grams heavier than putters made just back in 1995. Even the basic Cameron went up close to thirty grams if you compare a Classic 1 to a current Studio Select 360 gram Newport. Sure you can change the weight in the new one but everyone seems to think a putter needs to be a minimum of 350 grams to be considering even something they need to try today. My friend prefers to use a 330 gram head which is harder to find today in any modern putter. He's been using a Cameron Ci
  12. I find Superstrokes some of the easiest grips to install because of their stiffness. You'll hardly have any problems with them twisting on the way down and the stiffness makes aligning theme easy as well. Just make sure you're using a good putter clamp to hold the putter, a lot of lube..whatever brand you usually use and slide it on. As said the biggest problem you may encounter is getting it over the butt as there has been a few I've installed that got a little stuck at the top. Just make sure the top of the shaft is cut straight..not all manufactures cut them straight and make sure there a
  13. Kyle just finished a flow neck conversion of a 2018 Squareback for me as well as refinish. This putter had a single bend shaft which went over a neck on the head originally too. Kyle cuts it all off, I think bores it out a bit as well and welds on a new neck. Super guy to work with. Sent pics throughout the process. Also very reasonable prices. He makes his own line of putters as well which also have some great features. He has some interesting necks and also does cryogenic welding. Not positive but one of the first I've seen do that. Really a great guy to message with via instagram.
  14. I love them all. Since I'm of the older generation and Macgregor irons were my first sets, everything from National reminds of me of so many blades I've played in the past, the MT's, Tourneys, Tourney Classics and VIP's, If I was forced to make a choice, I'd go Top Row as they look so much like a set of Tourney's I loved. Plus, there's a number of muscle backs available currently similar to the middle and bottom row., Get the perfect Don White sole grind on there and you'll have club nirvana!
