Hey Thanks, I have never heard of this before. I just picked up a box off their webpage. I don't need it for my driver but I do for my 5 wood as I tend to get a bit steep with it and since the Fusions crown isn't painted it's really soft and gets messed up really easy.

Probably not exactly the same thing as the military stuff, but 3M makes a thick transparent plastic film called Paint Protection Film which has a strong adhesive backing. You can buy it at an automotive paint specialty store as it's commonly used as stone shields on car bodies (transparent covering on the front of flares, etc.). You can also get it at motorcycle shops, where it's typically sold to protect sport bike gas tanks from getting scratched by the hardware on your jacket.
It's relatively cheap, very strong, and stays transparent. You can pull it tight on a curved surface by heating it with a blow dryer and it removes with heat as well. I'm sure this is the same stuff that's cited in previous posts, minus a 500% mark up!

Now my question is. How can there be 3 companies making the same product, when 1 company owns the patent. Are they all paying that company.
I guess in a way, this gives me new hope.

I'm also a huge fan because the PUP guys are great to work with. I've used their protectors many, many times without incident but earlier this year when removing one from my Cobra ZL it ended up taking off some paint from the crown (smaller than half-a-dime in size). The damage was purely cosmetic and in reality not a *huge* deal but I'm pretty anal about keeping my gear in good shape so I was pretty irate. I shot them an email explaining what had happened and uch to my surprise I got a call from Leroy @ PUP less than 5 minutes later. He said this had happened only a couple times ever with one of their products but he would make sure I was taken care of. They paid for a brand spanking new head and all I had to do was ship them the damaged one. OUTSTANDING customer service.

I would be shocked if it had any effect at all. None of these solutions would weigh enough to affect swing weight and aerodynamically, if you apply it right it's going to stick tight to the club head. Shouldn't be any problem.

Question is?? Is Clear Shield Approved by the USGA/R&A like the P.U.P.?
