Designing a Golf Club IV

I did it. Putter head complete.

This design is called Cazador Mustang. Cazador meaning Hunter in Spanish (my high school nickname), and Mustang being my high school mascot. 

This design was milled from aluminum in Georgia, by PrintForm. It’s my dads father day gift. I need to paint the logo and the words and that top arrow and then it will be done.

I have a shaft from GolfWorks that I’ll be epoxying soon, and then I’ll be installing a grip. I can’t wait to give it to my dad!

More stuff like this to come!

That's cool. 
Have you ever done paint infill? 
It's not too difficult if you haven't. 

 

My only suggestion is to have added a pair of weight ports. Perhaps one on each of the meaty areas at the toe and heel. That way you could have added in stand size weights (sold through Amazon and/or Golf works) to adjust the weight. Currently if you pops wants different weighting you'll have to drop lead or tungsten shot down the shaft and push a cork down the shaft to keep it in place. 

Keep us posted on the progress. 

It's very cool and definitely a unique and personalized gift.

I think it's around the low three hundreds -- like 312 or something. We've installed the shaft, but not the grip, and it still feels too light. Hopefully the grip (a jumbo sized one) will give it a little more heft.

The plan is to do paint infill once we've got it all set up. I've got a set of microbrushes and some paint at home, so that's the next step. 

I agree on weight ports. I wasn't sure how this design was going to look or feel, and I wanted a prototype that was as simple as possible. The next design will probably have weight ports tho.

Swing weight will be low. That’s what I’m asking. Probably should’ve been 350 or so?

Yeah, agreed. I should've made it closer to 350. My dad plays a light-ish putter, so while its a departure from his norm, its not too bad. The next one I make will be closer to proper weight

I've used the same technique this guy uses and it's really pretty easy.
