You Want ANY Type of Club Customization – We Can Do It!

Buying new golf clubs can be an expensive proposition, and still may not serve to improve your game to a great degree. In many cases, a a similar improvement can be made by updating your existing clubs. There are alternatives to just going out and buying the latest new set produced by your favorite manufacturer. Perhaps switching out the current shaft to a higher or lower flex to match your swing speed or changing the club head to a more effective bounce for your elliptical swing plane. Switching to a new type of grips is another example of a move towards customization. By having your own set put together, not only can you save money, but the set of custom clubs will be made specifically to your personal preferences.iron club steps

Golf club manufacturing is dominated by a few well-known companies such as Callaway®, Nike®, Titliest®, Ping®, TaylorMade® and Cobra®. However, another reason to consider a custom set of clubs is the fact that often times, a set can be built for far less money using generic or clone component parts for assembly. Both offer superior performance and world-class quality just like the big brand names, but the alternatives are a better value. Does the Golf Ball really know the difference?

If you still are in the hunt for big names, consider buying a good used set of name-brand clubs and having them reconditioned, updated, and tuned-up to resemble close to new.

CLONES:

Clones are copies of brand golf clubs. A good clone provides the same performance, quality, and technological features as brand name clubs but more cost-effectively. Clones are every bit as good as name brand clubs. Clones are manufactured from the same components as the originals. Clone manufacturers buy their club heads, shafts, and grips from the same small community of suppliers as name brand companies. Clone golf equipment is not the same as “counterfeit”. It is 100% legal and within the patent & trademark limits. Many reputable companies sell clones. You might also find it very surprising that these clone designs are often approved by the name-brand manufacturers before they are released.

GENERIC BRANDS:

There are also many smaller boutique club manufacturers out in the marketplace that make great golf clubs that you won’t necessarily see in the pages of Golf Magazine or on the Golf Channel because they tend to put their cash into research and development instead of marketing. They also engineer, design, and produce high-quality golf clubs, but with offerings at a lower price than the major company players. These smaller companies can often experiment and produce innovative components as well as different combinations of overall swing design.

Custom = Choices:

Club Components in Custom Builds

  • Shaft
  • Head
  • Grip
  • Ferrule

Custom builds enable us to control the swing weight of each component item to provide you with the optimum total swing weight. Swing weight is a factor that casual golfers rarely give much thought to, while more serious golfers often do. Swing weight is a measure of how the weight of the club feels during the swing. Technically speaking, swing weight is a balance measurement and equates to the degree in which the club balances toward the club head. For example, if Club A has a balance point closer to the club head than Club B, then Club A will feel heavier in the swing. It should be noted that swing weight and the actual or total weight of the club are two different things. In reality, women do not have to play with women’s clubs and men do not have to play with men’s clubs.

Your Custom Club Idea…or Ours!

We will put together any type of club combination you imagine. If you want a non-standard club loft – we built a club for a gentleman that wanted a 68 degree loft lob wedge. That’s crazy! – but we did it. We took an expensive putter head on a broken shaft that a customer bought for a huge discount at Play It Again Sports – and refurbished, re-shafted, and re-gripped it to look like new. Another customer asked us to put a “brand new” hybrid head on an old club shaft/grip previously sitting around his garage – now he actually uses it. We put pistol putter grips onto someone’s short chipper and improved their accuracy by limiting their wrist turning.

The possibilities are endless! We can review your clubs and make suggestions. Turn old clubs into functional “like new” ones. Create a non-standard loft (not illegal as we know the USGA club rules) for a custom lob, gap, or pitching wedge. Turn your putter from a straight shaft to a double-bend model.

Innovation and creativity is our “custom” club business.

Remember, it’s really not a crazy idea if it works!
