Anyway to "strip" callaway x22s?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

Hey guys,

 

I was wondering if tehre's anyway to take off the badge and the gaudyness of the x22. Anyone done this before?

 

Thanks!

One thought: would stripping off the badge lower the swingweight?

 

I played X20s for two seasons, and one thing I liked about them was the dull "nickel" finish: no glare, and didn't show bag wear very much. X22 had shiny chrome.

Hm yeah, I hadn't thought about that part. Yes, my x22s show wear cuz of the shiny chrome, but its all worn/dull now anyway, so no biggie :)

 

I went out at the beginning of this year and numerous sets of irons, but still like my x22s the best. Just not a fan of the shiny blue back of them.

I watched a video on youtube about callaway that showed how they assembled there irons and I believe the badges are actual weights so they can adjust swingweights...but don't quote me on that.

Hm interesting. So i guess the only way is to paint them silver/gray huh?

Not only do they add to the swing weighting, I believe they also act in some sort of shock absorption role.  I know I read something about that somewhere, and it might have even been regarding another manufacturer's clubs too.  Heck, I can't remember now.  I guess this post added nothing of value!  e4_tumbleweed.gif

That's the case with PING, but not 100% sure on Callaway.
