Does anyone know the answer to this? I am curious about their process and products they use compared to the average DIYer.

Based on what they state on their website, they most likely use paint similar to what's used by the automotive industry.  They mention candy colors, which implies they use base/clear for at least some of their refinishing work.  Question is whether they use urethane or some sort of acrylic enamel.  Rattle can paint you can purchase in hardware stores is junk in comparison.  Significantly more prone to chips and scratches.

I am guessing Nessism is right. I would assume they are using urethane automotive grade paint. The biggest difference between that and the stuff you by in a spray can is that the paint is catalyzed. The paint cures via a combination of the solvents evaporating and a chemical reaction between the ingredients (specifically the hardener component). This creates a much more durable surface opposed to a lacquer or enamel you buy in a spray can. The drawbacks of a paint system like this are cost, additional complexity of mixing various components, added toxicity (isocyanates), and a shelf life of a few hours (give or take) once the hardener is added.

Is there anyone out there that paints clubs by Powder Coating? Now that would be the most durable and I suspect thats what all OEM's do.

The best paint in a spray can that I have found is Duracoat. It is an automotive paint , you can pick it up at most auto parts stores, and (where I get it from) Tractor Supply Company.

I'd hate to ask this but is auto posting significantly heavier than others?

There are several places to get powder coating of golf clubs done. Actually any powder coating business could do it for you. You have to remove the head from the shaft as the process involves baking at something like 400 F. This bake will also destroy any interior filler in the clubhead such as hot glue or polyurethane foam.

OEM's do not use powdercoating as even the best powdercoat job looks a lot less shiny then the two part acrylic urethane type paints used in both the automotive and OEM club building industry. Powdercoating is very durable but leaves something to be desired if you really want high a high gloss finish as you car or OEM club has.

On a scale of 1 to 10, 10 being most durable and 1 being no durability how does doing it yourself stand up against continentals work?

You could try to do it yourself, and if doesn't turn out as you would like, simply send the head to continental golf after stripping old paint.

The out of a can job will scratch when using a headcover.  Unless you want to respray every week.

Spend the cash and get Continental to do it.


I know a PGA Teaching Pro who complained to his TM rep that he didn't like the feel of anything new and loved his SuperQuad.  He wanted to still push the White Hype.  His rep at TM told him to send the SQ to Continental and get it refinished in white.  

TM and most OEM's use Continental to do their refinish jobs.  Send it to them and don't worry about you club cracking and chipping with the Kylon job.
