Would one of the chemical paint stripping products get the job done?  Honest question, I'm not familiar enough with either club paint removal or such chemical products....

Iíve used stuff like that for paint fill, but never for the entire club head. Sanding the club is actually super simple and shouldnít take too long. Itís going to be scratched up due to being sanded but it doesnít take long to do.

Thatís what I used to strip the paint off of mine. It will not take it all off and will require some elbow grease to remove it all. I lightly used a fine grit sandpaper to finish.

Thanks that is the exact look I'm going for. So paint strip and light sand- what grit did you use? What direction did you sand, front to back?

I donít remember exactly what grit but any really fine/extra fine should work. You may have to use a medium grit to get some of that paint off then finish sand with fine grit. Also I went from heel to toe and taped up the face and sole because those parts were in nearly new condition...the painted part was another story.

I used an old metal dog bowl that was deep enough to submerge the clubhead up to the hosel. It will take some time for the paint to strip off and I also used a plastic scraper to help, but it didnít last long until the paint stripper softened it up and it was useless.

I appoligize if this has been covered in here, but what was the factory stock lenth for the 3wd when these came out?

I just picked one up for 20 bucks and although it has a stock reg shaft it only measures 41.75. Which noticeably shorter than my other 3wd.

It setup great in the store and since it had a newer grip and headcover I figured it was a no brained to try out. Always had trouble finding a 3wd.

Welcome to the club. That's definitely short. Did some research and the standard factory length of the 15į is 43". Hope this helps.

So if the one I picked up has been cut 1.25 in down to 41.75. In theory it will stiffen the flex up a bit???

A little bit. If it's the stock shaft you'll want to re-shaft it anyways.

Had it out on the course today and it was great. Probably only 5-10yrds shorter than current offerings. But I put 3 outta 4 right where I wanted. Felt  nice and crisp. I'll take consistantcy anyday.
