My buddy andI just started building our own clubs and I was curious where everyone buys their tools and other clubmaking accessories?

We are looking for Ferrules right now and a few toosl that will make the process a little easier.

We appreciate any advice you may have.

Thanks

Adam

Can't go wrong with a lot of the GolfWorks stuff.  I use Cell-Parts for my ferrules (mostly Mizuno and Titleist builds). But I will mention something I found recently.  I was buying my grip tape from GW but this last roll was clearly a different supplier.  I spent too much time trying to separate the backing from the tape and finally pitched the roll.  I bought some from Value Golf that works well.  Have fun!!!

Actual supplies I mostly buy from golfworks, good quality stuff. Tools like my belt sander/ferrule turner and my bench grinder/buffer I got from Harbor freight tools. Usually pretty cheaply made stuff but you can't beat the price most of the time.

Golf Works is great, and I actually prefer their ferrules to cell-parts (although I have to admit the colored ones are pretty cool).  Also, I get my grip tape and solvent from Global Tour Golf and I feel like it's a bit better quality than the stuff from Golf Works.

I appreciate all of the advice. I am definitely going to get colored ferrules.

Has anyone ever used Vibrant Golf?

The best colored ferrules out there are those from Cell Parts. Vibrant's, in my experiences, haven't always been sized properly. They either need too much turn down or they're just a hair small. Cell Parts build based off OD of the club's hosel.

This is good to know. Thanks! I think I will end up getting the red ferrules for my irons.

Get a bunch of black ones to practice on first. It takes awhile to get good at turning them. More than likely you will ruin several before you get the hang of it.

Read all you can too.  There is a lot more to building clubs than most think IF you want a truly custom build that plays like a custom build. I thought I was building clubs for the first year until I gained enough knowledge to build my first custom set. Night and day from the "cut", "glue" and "stick" method......
