My first attempt at flattening woods

My first attempt at flattening woods

Postby IanB » Tue Feb 04, 2014 4:37 pm

Here is my first attempt at flattening and refinish this is a hogan 3 wood . I wanted to try on some laminates before a nice persimmon. They are 49 degrees and I have to say they set up great and feel amazing! More pics of the driver later.

all three 1,3,4. Im pretty happy I spent a lot of time working on the necks trying to make them look good. My frying pans look ridiculous by comparison…..I love the flatter feel.

Congrats!

Then look great and I am sure you will love hitting them.
Nothing like the connection you will have to a club you personally tooled to your own eye.

I can't even look at a frying pan driver. Not just the huge head, but the toe way up in the air is not going to play well for me.

Keep us posted, and good luck with your next project... a nice piece of persimmon.

What I find frustrating is that for many years I played the Titleist 975 or 905 driver which although being metal had a very small head not too much bigger than a persimmon. I hit the thing well and it was my favorite driver. Back then the best part of my game was my driving hitting a lot of fairways AND strangely enough I had a flat swing that was very repeatable consistency was a huge part of my game. I used to say to my buddies ." I don't know what Im going to do if I ever break this thing because I sure can't hit the big toaster on a stick clubs" Ultimately. and foolishly, I succumbed to peer pressure and retired my trusty old stick and bought into the new technology. First off everything went left big time i couldn't hit it at all but I persevered and in the process destroyed what swing I had. This is one of the reasons why abs resonates with me deeply and why I feel Im on the right path.

Project number two I'm going to try and put in this insert material and stain it dark like the Cleveland aL44 with the gamma fire insert. You can't really tell from the pic but the persimmon has really nice grain hopefully it will turn out nice !

So I decided to use a hogan persimmon as my test bed for the new insert so here we are so far.
