They were rumored to be testing the waters with a personalized ball fitting. Given you had to buy something ridiculous like 200 dozen but you went through a several-day fitting and had the ball built exactly to your specifications.

They would even submit it to the conforming list so it could be played in tournaments.

This is the serial number from the Vapor Fly TW. I’m a long time Nike Golf fan and collector and have never seen an OBJ serial number. Anyone have any info on where this club may have come from?

I’m just throwing this out there. Is it possible that the OBJ serial number was made for another Nike athlete?

That would be pretty cool.  I haven’t been able to find much out about the back story of the club. Another user said they have a Vapor Fly hybrid that has an OBJ serial number and that the hybrid is a tour issue. But I would like to know what OBJ means or signifies.

Here's my theory for the OBJ serial numbers.

AJXXXXX = american market
JXXXXXX = Japan market
OBJXXXXX = Oven Built --off a japan market head.

the stuff sold in japan are higher quality in terms of being closer to spec. less imperfections blah blah blah

Maybe baby

Edit: This is a terrible theory. Someone please bless us with the true answer!

Couldn€™t get the link to open, finally did. Didn€™t see anything about the OBJ serial in that thread. Just a lot of uncertainty around what Nike used to signify a tour issue product.

Same seller, this is the third one he has sold. I sent him a DM to see if he would give me any of the back story on the heads. Wait and see...

Please chime in if he gets back to you. Very curious myself.

Also. I just saw he was selling 140 RZN plats for 210$. Guess I'll find a new ball next season =]
