  1. Quick update - got my wedges back from Flanigan Bilt. Overall, very satisfied... a couple of thing to note - still are a couple of very small nicks in my 60 on the face, and the V-Sole (which is something I dearly love) is still nicely defined on the 60, but much less so on the 55 and 50. I haven't gotten to hit them and I'm kind of thinking they'll still perform well, but it is a slight disappointment. Also, while the cost of the refinish was $150, there were a bunch of hidden costs that I got hit with on the invoice - shaft removal, shaft installation, ferule, etc. Total came out to $315, which is much richer than I was expecting - in my experience, expect some of these costs to rack up in the background. Best recommendation is to ship club heads only, and if you want to send the materials like I did, assume there will be a charge for it.
  2. Tigernick posts all of that on his website, I think it was around $350 - I supplied my own grips and shafts for the project. I’ve got a putter out to the Golf Garage, no info on exactly what that will cost but it’s pretty custom so I’m expecting it to be similar… I’m having some wedges refinished with Flanagan Bilt and that’s about $150… I also supplied grips and shafts for that one
  3. Here’s an update for you all - I’ve got a couple of projects in the works, here’s one that I’ve gotten back… got my Titleist 735 stainless refinished in the bronze from Tiger Nick (pictures are also on his Instagram when they were newly finished). It’s wearing a bit faster than I had hoped for, but they’re pretty stunning and I don’t mind a little wear on the sweet spot. Played like 5 rounds with them, maybe 6:
  4. I see, I guess I thought that the mallet head itself would eliminate some of the toe hang with those other types of necks... I found some interesting little nuggets here and there (see link below), and the new description on the Scotty Cameron- Special Select Fastback 1.5 Putter says that the "refined small slant" that encourages a bit of toe hang. Only reason I didn't immediately think of a plumbers neck is because I don't love the look of plumber necks on mallets, though I have never owned one with a mid or long plumber neck so maybe that would be good... Here's a neck that I found that I'm not sure exactly how it would perform, thoughts? https://www.golfworks.com/the-golfworks-putter-hosels/p/gw0138/
  5. This is a re-post, not sure if this is the correct forum... I have a Ben Hogan BHB3-C that I'm going to have refinished - it currently has a double bend hosel to make it a fully face balanced design... I'm wondering what neck I can have put on that has the least amount of toe hang but still having SOME. I already have a fully face balanced putter and I'm looking for a neck that would support a very slight amount of arc - I'm thinking in the 10-20 degrees of toe hang; what would your recommendations be? Some kind of a short slant or slant neck? Or an extended plumber's neck?

  7. I'm curious, what work was that? I'm thinking of sending a putter over to Labworx, and the Golf Garage has this black cherry finish that keeps me up at night
  8. Just wanted to share some of what I've learned in trying to find a reputable place to have some older irons refinished - I figured my options would be very limited, but I couldn't have been more wrong. I saw some older threads here and on Reddit that pointed me in the right direction, but also I've been browsing through Instagram and found a ton of people that are producing some STUNNING work. Putters seem to be by far the most popular club to have refinished, and as such some companies only handle putters. I wanted to make a post about that because some of these companies should have a ton of notoriety for the incredible work they do... and coming from a club junkie, I've had a few clubs that I've saved just because they were gems - I'm going to have my old Titleist 735 CM set refinished as well as several putters and I plan to post the results here. I thought some people might find some value in it, since spending a few hundred bucks to have your favorite clubs refinished with something custom is a HELL of a lot cheaper than new sets every few years. Thought I would list them here so there was a slightly better chance of other people finding the info in a single place. I'll try to separate the companies that only do putters... if you all have any experience with refinishers I'd love to keep the conversation going to let people know what to expect, what your experience is, and if you have any other names to add to the list!
