you should send it to Kevin Colbert at www.putterplating.com . He can do anything to your putter! engrave it, change the paint, change the finish, get rid of any dents, scrathes etc i recently sent a pretty banged up scotty to him and it looks brand new and i got it re-finished, engraved and painted for $75. I got a sightline and a flag engraved on it, so yours would be less if your only wanting a line done. You should email im for a quote.

No doubt about it, Kevin is the man. Below is my putter which came in a few days ago from Kevin Colbert of www.putterplating.com I had the Rife Antigua stainless high polished, V line engraved, red paint fill, UST frequency filtered shaft, Iomic midsize (black), thinned the lip a bit so I can more easily scoop the ball up, etc.. He did an awesome job by the way. Top shelf service and communication leading up to and during the process. Can't recommend him highly enough. These are just some quick iPhone pics and don't do the work he did justice...



















Below is a review from the "Review" section of the forum. Around Oct 2007...

When sending in the putter, do you send them the entire putter or just the head? I know they have to pull the shaft to work on the head so am curious if they send it back completely installed or just the head.

That black oxide finish in all matte looks pretty awesome. Thanks !!

I sent in my whole putter, but sending the head alone would be fine I am sure. Email Kevin if you have any concerns. Super nice guy and he is good about keeping in touch.

i only sent the head, becuase it was much cheaper for me to send the small box over to the states. he doesnt mind either way. He is a great guy though, very helpful and always keeps in touch. Good time of year to get it done too, when your not playing as much

Ok so here's my another question: I hav been looking at this putter(the 001)(the concept seems amazing) http://www.golftoimpress.com/wp-cont...ser-putter.jpg and i was wondering if your guys ho have had it done think he could make a sight line over the dot? Also for those who had ONLY engraving done how long did it take for you to get your putter back?

yeah im pretty sure he could. he would probably just fill in the sight dot and then engrave a sight line instead. i mean the man can do pretty much anything to a putter!

I think he quotes up to 4 weeks for only engraving, but it depends on how busy he is.
he may have quite a few putters at this time of year...people wanting their putters done in time for the season starting

Email Kevin for the turn around time. Depends on how busy he is I suspect. I had a new UST shaft put in, head refinished, engraved V line on top, red paint fill, lip ground down, etc.. and I got my putter back in 3.5 weeks. That counts the day I sent it to the day I got it back. Email Kevin and tell him what you want done and ask how long it will take.

I've been looking into this recently and I think I'll be going with Colbert. Just waiting on a quote. Thanks!

    • The progressive wing of the Dem party hates Kaine. He is pro TPP and favors deregulation to wall street. However he brings in VA and has a solid record on many issues for moderate Dems.
      I would not be surprised if you see Bernie speak at the DNC. He will tell his supporters that even though HRC is not their first choice he (Bernie) will have a better chance of working with  her for their issues, than DT! I hear they are countering Baio with prime time slot speech from Erin Moran!!!!!
    • Newtogolf's post is important.  I do not like hanging around people that are used to having a staff.  I just went on a raft trip with a friend of almost 50 years.  We do our own trips, and it is important for everyone to pitch in as it is a lot of work for guys in their 60s.  My friend just retired from being a doctor, and never really figured out how to help for the good of the group. He kept wanting to consider himself a "guest."   That is after we had some long discussions about being part of the team.  He will not be invited back. I would not want to play golf with people that are used to having a caddy either.   
    • Most double bogies, especially from the average golfer don't come from "taking risks", they come from a poor swing that results in OB, water hazard, lost in the woods, whatever.  A decent player can still break 80 with a double or two for exactly that reason, it's only a couple of bad swings.   The reason that most golfers never break 80 is that they make a lot of those bad swings, that add up.  But even good golfers, who break 80 (or better) consistently, will have the occasional bad swing that will result in a penalty and subsequently a double, or worse.   Which is "harder" is a matter of skill level. For me, someone who, as the OP asked, is as likely to break 80 as not, if I had to bet on the result of any given round before the first tee, I'd bet that I break 80 over a DB free round of any score.  Higher handicap players will find the opposite.  Scratch or better players will seldom fail to break 80, but will still have their share of individual blowup holes.  They'll just use their superior play on the remaining 16 or 17 holes to offset the couple of bad swings. 
    • I don't know enough about his situation.  Maybe not immediately -- he wouldn't qualify for the PGA Championship or the FedEx Cup playoffs (you can't earn points as a non-member, which he is for this event).  But probably by end of summer to start the 2016-17 PGA Tour season as a member.  Unless I'm forgetting someone, he'd be the third amateur to win a PGA Tour event in my lifetime (Verplank, Mickelson). 
    • Thanks.  I figured I would have heard by now if it made a difference, but I'm glad to hear it just the same. I tee off in just over three hours for my first round with the game golf.
