    I swear those Artisan Putters are the most beautiful putters I have ever seen. I like how he has all the different finishes and the way he mills the face. I love my Scotty but would drop that thing in a second to put an Artisan in the bag.

    If your fancy off-the-shelf major brand clubs are not custom-built and fitted, your homemade WITB is krapola.

    If your fancy off-the-shelf major OEM brand clubs are not custom-built and fitted your homemade WITB assortment is second rate.

    If your fancy off-the-shelf major OEM brand clubs are not custom-built and fitted you might as well be swinging clubs from Walmart … your homemade WITB assortment of love clubs are third rate… ya can’t be proud of that.. 😀

      Well Blake that tape job has worked for Tiger for well over a decade so I would say its pretty damn good. Where is a video of your work I would like to see how you think is should be done!

      I don’t see the problem with it. Tape went full length of grip, then they trimmed it off.

    I’m not really familiar with the company, but they seem like great folks, people that are committed to excellence and see something bigger than themselves. I’d love to give their wedges a go.

      You would love to have their wedges fitted to your exact specs… they would be beauties.
