Headed to Oahu next month and wanted to see if Carl Masui still had a shop.

I purchased one of his Chikara wedges way back when they were prototypes and wanted to see if he had anything he was working on. Or get a new wedge worked on.

I know some members here were friends with Carl and familiar with his work. Can you point me in the right direction with an address?

Thanks in advance!

What was the name of his shop?   Was his shop in Kapahulu, near the residential area?

Not sure what happened to these wedges.  Try checking w/Keith at Roots and Relics in downtown Honolulu.

Not sure if you're thinking of Aloha Golf.  That shop closed years ago.

Thanks for the replies, guys. I don’t know the name of his shop, just that he had one and he did lots of custom grinds on wedges.

I’ll pm Pitbull and see if he has any info.
