    Semi-Custom Putter I'm Making

    Doesn't need it's own thread so I'll stick it in here. My old Wilson was looking a bit run down so I gave it the same treatment. I also changed the factory white and red lettering to something a bit more appropriate.

    It's basically done. The orange grip is a place holder until the black leather one I ordered arrives. Just wanted to get something on it so I could make sure it's weighted properly.

    Semi-Custom Putter I'm Making

    Unfortunately the shaft I was gonna use isn't gonna work, so I bought another cheap TPM 4 off Ebay with a decent shaft that I'll use. I also picked up a Grip Masters leather putter grip to give it that nice vintage look. In the meantime I did another coat of Blue on the hosel because it was a...

    Once the shaft is dry I'll slide a rubber on it, and go whack a few balls. Hopefully sink a few into the hole. Who knows?

    It's gotta be nice and clean before you slide it in.

    Blued, buffed, paint filled, and a coat of wax for good measure. Head is done. Gotta prep the shaft now. Then I'm gonna order a nice leather grip for it.

    When it comes to doing paint fill its all about precision and a delicate touch.

    Got 3 coats of Birchwood Casey Super Blue on it. Nice even finish came out beautiful. It's a little darker in person than the pictures suggest. Next step is paint fill.

    Had this old thing laying around and it had the shaft I needed in it, and it was in surprisingly good condition. It's a little short but I can extend it.

    Thanks C2. I've decided to cold blue it. Gonna do 1 last round of polishing today and then blue it tomorrow and do the paint fill. Then I gotta track down a shaft for it. Those old pencil shafts aren't easy to find these days. Might have to buy a whole other putter and pull the shaft. But they...

    1st round of sanding with the coarser stuff is done. I also beveled a few of the sharper edges, and removed the old paint fill.

    Semi-Custom Putter I'm Making

    Figured the few golf folks here might wanna see this. My dad was friends with a custom putter maker named T.P. Mills when I was born. T.P. heard my dad was having a kid so he made me a custom putter and gave it to my dad. My Godson was born not long ago, and I wanna make him a semi custom putter...

    So 1st range report with them. Instant bump in forgiveness from the 25 year old T-Zoids I was using. A little more head waleight too which is nice. Not quite as pure a feel as the old t-zoids mainly because of these not being a solid forging, but the extra forgiveness more than makes up for...

    Nice. I usually use Lamkin royal cords but I had these Karma cords laying around and they felt great so I stuck them on.

    The finished product. Don't have time to hit the course, but I'll take them to the range this weekend.

    Building Myself Some New Clubs

    I'm probably gonna go with some Karma full cords. On the cheaper side, but honestly they feel better than the GP full cords. I like a rough cord and the Golf Prides tend to be a little smoother. I always have to rough them up with sandpaper. Whereas the Lamkin and Karma cords feel right without...

    Here's how they sit for now. Will cut and grip them tomorrow.

    I inserted the hard shaft into the dark hole. Tomorrow I'll circumcise the shaft from the butt end and then slide some rubbers on them. After letting them dry I will then whip them out and hit some balls to with them. Maybe even colored balls.

    Those MCC's are pretty but I'm not a huge fan of them. Especially for the price. I prefer a full cord. The shafts are some KBS 110s I had laying around that I pulled from another set a while back.
