Our first clue came from Ari in another post here on WRX. Maybe it has to do with The Armory?

I think the retail putters were supposed to be ready by then too, but have been pushed back to mid-summer...  And the price should be in-line with Scotty on the retail stuff, I believe.

I'm ready to buy the plumbers neck one.. the proto pics from the golf show looked awesome... (kind of a answer/NP2 style, but shorter toe to heel)...

I can't wait!

If they were launching a new site, why wouldn't they put up a more professional looking temporary landing page rather than the generic one that is up now?

I'm assuming the hospital disposed of it, but I cannot confirm. I was still knocked out when they did their thing, lol.

Can't wait to see their putters in hand, and the preview for the armory was well done.

We are in the process of updating the website and redoing our web store completely and as I understand it the server crashed while they were doing maintenance.  It was not supposed to be down like this and is getting fixed.  Site should be back up tonight and completely updated this week.

I hope everyone had a great holiday weekend and enjoyed a great Masters tournament!

Really hoping to see some LH irons from Scratch in the near future.  I was ready to pony up for the 2000 it was going to take to put my irons and wedges together but are unsure which way to go now.  Might end up in a Titleist or a Mizuno. LH forged irons are tough somedays.  

Hope the new site is up soon and the company keeps growing.

Me too. I guess I understand how it doesn't make sense from a business stand point to offer left handed irons

Yea...I've pretty much figured that one out...especially for a small custom oriented company...

Still doesn't mean I can complain a little.   I am still thinking I might go with their wedges.

their original website was horrible, so I'm not that shocked.  they need to hire a company to not only redesign what they have, but a reputable hosting company that would never be down this long.

Edit:  The site is up.. Not quite running yet.  Some of the tabs aren't "live" yet.

But, overall, looks like a nice updated look.

Looks much better, that's for sure.

I might be nitpicking but why group irons and accessories to the same tab? Put a clubs tab with irons/wedges underneath and put the accessories by themselves. Certainly not a big deal but silly things like that annoy me.

If you notice the navigation, they've made a mistake.  Especially if what you notice makes you go "huh?"

Were just waiting for the website to be finished. Our main site crashing forced our web guys to shift their focus to the main site and away from The Armory site. The main site is back up obviously but they are still working out some kinks on the main site while working on The Armory site too. It should be done soon. Ill keep you guys updated.

The Armory is not simply a new name for the TD stuff.  More info soon....
