Curious if anyone has tried this finish yet.  If so, would love to see some pictures or hear feedback.

Currently considering the same. Hoping someone has input, particularly around durability of a PVD finish.

I would avoid NorCal I had an absolutely horrible experience with them.  Everything that could have gone wrong went wrong and they were dishonest with me more than once in the process which is what upset me the most.  The refinish was a lot more expensive than everyone else but I thought it would be worth it and it was not at all.  The whole process took over 6 months and I got no customer service help at all.  Personally I'd avoid dealing with them at all costs.  Easily the worst experience I've had dealing with any company in the golf business.

Thatís unfortunate to hear. Very difficult to trust them with a project when you hear negative feedback, particularly when others are raved about on WRX.
Thanks for the feedback.

I decided to give NorCal a try and went with Bkackberry PVD.  So many great examples posted to Instagram.  Hoping the negative experience is not reflective of the norm. We shall see. Willing to give them an opportunity.

I won't get into the history of PVD, but it's one of the hardest coatings currently available. It's used on commercial drill bits and medical equipment.

That being said, I had a set of cobra s3 pros done in rainbow PVD. Zero wear.
