There has been a couple threads on this. Consensus is that it will never come to retail market. Been made for several tour players.

Can't believe a manufacturer would come out with a driver that the masses can't get. The public feeds off what the pros play. Make it a special order premium price product. I wouldn't buy it, but you know many would.

I agree I would buy one, it's a great driver and looks great in black. It may not be the correct reason but a lot of people would buy one just beacause of the color.

Yeah, because it's never happened before. LULZ. In all seriousness though, this happens all the time with special prototypes.

Wow love at first sight!!! Posted Image

To bad Ping didn't have the foresight to release the G20 in this finish from the get go, or even as a special edition. They would have sold a bundle more IMHO.

I love that PING will let you custom order clubs so easily.  I can't see why this wouldn't become available.

IMO they feel the same

I have to imagine that OEMs are discussing the concept of colorizing drivers as an option....of the idea of manufacturing a driver with multiple color options off the shelf.  It seems like it makes too much sense for them not too. I'm sure there are some players who'd like an R11s or RBZ, but don't want a white club.  And the AMP - couldn't it sell to someone in an all black who likes the club, but isn't into glow-in-the-dark?  And look at the desire for a G20 in black?  

Just seems like customization is the way of the future - after adjustsability.

What don't people just send them to painters to get custom paint jobs on the head or custom color?

Aside from the Ion Plating (PVD) sole plate - it's only around 35 bucks and takes about a week.

I've been crazy enough to experiment a few times about a year ago and I've got the process DOWN.  

It's not all that difficult honestly, it just takes a good bit of concentration in masking off the area you're NOT painting and taking your time.  

If I don't love my i20, I'll probably go with the G20 and do something like this...

I talked to a friend of mine who is a Product Planning Manager for Ping when I order my G20 and all he said was for me to show him my "Tour Card" and I can get a black one.
