TOPIC: EPIC FAIL!

EPIC FAIL! 6 years 7 months ago #77883

So I recently purchased a Milled 2 Ball BLACK ProType putter head, double bend shaft and super stroke fatso to put together. Been looking for a milled putter for a bit for feel purposes though I'm still a huge fan of grooved (Yes! and Nike milled style) faces I think I lack the feel that milled face provides to improve my putting. I've been driving my wife NUTS putting with a metronome every night for 30-60 mins. Yes the putting has improved but nothing to write home about.

Back to the topic at hand... with the new pieces I purchased, I wanted to get the black shaft that is typically associated with this putter and thought I could "PlastiDip" it to get the same look. Boy was I wrong. VERY VERY wrong.

I bought some PVC pipe, filled it with the plastidip and slowly "dipped" the shaft in the dip as directed and pulled back the same way. The finish was terrible, chunky, bubble ridden, uneven, just downright atrocious. So I pulled it all off and cleaned the shaft off and now its plain ol' chrome/silver again.

So I'd really like to re-finish the shaft somehow in black. Any suggestions?

I put the putter together otherwise so I could practice with it. The milled face is a completely different feel, and the 2ball head is considerably heavier with a great feel compared to SeeMore.

Duracoat it. If it is good enough to hold up on guns it should work on a putter.
