    Hey Shottalk! My name is Maison, and I’m joining because I recently have been getting into club restoration and customization in my garage. I started with an old master that my neighbor gave to me when I was about ten years old, and I was hooked! I would love any suggestions on good forum threads, articles, anything to help me learn. Thanks!

    Welcome. There are a number of people here with Ping fever. I understand there’s no cure.

    Ping fever is for real, if the rumors are true my G700’s will ship on Friday and I’ll be taking possession of them early April.

    @PaPaD is our resident custom/restoration guru. He’s also a helluva guy!

    Thanks for the recommendation! I finished two projects, one on an old master, and one on an adams putter I found in a ditch. About five days later and I have bought twelve putters hahaha

    Thanks! I don’t have any specific questions right now, but may in the future. I’ve been reading a blog called diygolfer and it’s pretty good

    You've stumped me already. Most of my experience has been in shining up older SS irons, paint-filling heads, repainting metal woods, etc. Club building, repair and re-shafting - I have MANY stories to share!

    No one here is better at re-shafting irons than Nick (Fairwaysplitter).
