Just wondering if anyone else has had any issues with paint chipping on the new Titleist TS line?  I got the TS2 for Christmas and after hitting 6 balls I went to adjust it and noticed 3 significant paint chips on the sole.

Weird, we have had demos in our fit cart that have been bashed around, no issues?! Bet Titleist replaces it?! ;)

Ya I am hoping so.  My wife bought it for me from our home course pro shop and when I took it back they said it shouldn't be a problem to get it replaced.  Just waiting to hear back from the Titleist rep about it.

How did you hit it???  I ask, because if you get it replaced, a different club, while with all specs being the same, should feel exactly the same - sadly, they never seem to.

I was always of the opinion that appearances mattered less than performance. YMMV

I literally hit 6 balls with it and then stopped once I saw the paint chips so I hadn't really established a 'relationship' with it yet haha

For $500, I expect a durable paint job. Bummer! I would definitely be disappointed.

I really hope this isn't a very common thing or Titleist is going to lose the hype they have around them before spring even hits. Have yet to hit mine, just got it off of a guy off here but this makes me nervous.

Happened to me on a TM M1, back when they switched to their Mexico factory. I know it’s not Titleist exactly but they replaced no questions asked.

No issues with mine and I’ve got close to 50 rounds on mine. Titliest will make it right.

Every now and then you see one like this. Maybe the head wasnít cleaned properly before paint, etc. Just ring Titleist they will resolve the problem Iím sure. Iím so OCD that would drive me straight up the wall! BB

I've had my TS3 since first of September, no paint issues. I'm sure Titleist will take care of this. Probably a bad paint batch.
