Here at GLG, I talk a lot about how custom-fit clubs will do good things for your game.
That’s why we offer a retrofitting service!
Ever deal with this from the “big name” companies? There’s a LOT of steps involved!
Not at Green Lantern Golf!
It starts with filling out the form (below), or, a simple call or email (preferably email, for the “paper trail”). You tell me:
- a little bit about yourself,
- about your game,
- what you hope to achieve,
and I come up with a way to fit your clubs to that plan.
From there, you send me your club (or clubs), and I’ll retrofit them to the specs we came up with in the consultation.
If you’re wondering “what goes into a retrofitting service?”, you’re in luck.
All the specs that can be modified:
- loft (irons, wedges and putters only*)
- swing weight
- grip type/grip size
- spine alignment/Flat Line Oscillation (FLO)
It’s all based on the 10 Pillars of Club Fitting:
Just because something can be adjusted doesn’t mean it should be. If all you want is a regrip, I can do that for you. If you want the whole kit-and-kaboodle, I can do that, as well.
* if your woods and hybrids are fixed-hosel models, I won’t be able to adjust them. That’s the problem with titanium- it definitely is as strong as advertised. Now, if you have an adjustable-hosel model, that I can make happen.
The Details of Green Lantern Golf's Retrofitting service!
"Retrofitting" is taking your older or current golf clubs and breathing some new life into them. Here's an article I wrote about it.
If your swing changes, but you don't want to shell out a few hundred dollars for a new set of irons, it's possible to create new specs with your current set to get them back to helping you play better golf.
Retrofitting Services and Costs (click to find more info!)
Regrip- $2.99/grip, $19/set*
Old grips are removed, and new grips are applied. Tape and solvent are used; air installation by request.
*Note: this is for the labor. The total cost is [Cost of Grips] + [Labor]
Loft/Lie Adjustment- $4.99/head
Loft and lie angles can move through normal use. It's a good idea to have them checked at least once a year. There is a limit: +/- 2 degrees for cast models; +/- 4 degrees for forged models.
Note 1: While every precaution will be taken, it's still possible to get "clamp marks" on the topline and/or hosel of the clubs. This will in no way affect playability.
Note 2: There is also a risk of breakage. I can't know how many times a club's already been altered; and just like with any metal, it's always a possibility. Every step will be taken to prevent this, though.
Is your old shaft not working for you? Did it break? A new one can easily be installed!
**If reshaft involves replacing a broken model, every effort will be made to match the new shaft to the old, if desired.
A new grip will need to be purchased, as well, unless it was installed with air. The cost of grip installation is waived in this instance.
Modify Club Length- $10.99/club
Length can be added or removed upon request. This will alter the swing weight, so bear that in mind!
Note: a new grip will have to be purchased, unless the current model was installed with air. The cost of installation is waived in this instance.
Modify Swing Weight- $4.99/club
If you want your club head feel to be heavier, that can be done. I remove the head, add a tip pin, and reinstall the head. However, I won't go over 10 grams; going over that will shift the head's "sweet spot" closer to the heel, making it harder for you to hit. That's not the goal, in my opinion.
Note: weight can be removed... but it's not encouraged. Grinding away metal to reduce swing weight can alter a club's playability. Every effort will be made to grind from the least conspicuous spot, but please note that this alteration can not be undone!
Also, not that this will increase the overall length of the club (or clubs) by 1/8". It won't effect it's playability, but if you're OCD like me, you might want to consider altering the length back to the original, for an additional $10.99/club.
Aside from the five services mentioned above, I can do some custom jobs, as well. Just ask- in the next paragraph you'll find out how!
To get started, just contact me. Let me know what you want done. If you're unsure, I'll ask you some questions about your game, and based on the answers I'll come up with a plan. If you agree, I'll send you an invoice. After I receive your clubs, I'll work my magic.
Just click the button below to get started!
It's as simple as that!
Give me 24 hours, and I'll get back to you with some ideas. Maybe a quote, but that part's negotiable until you're ready.
By the way: this contact form doesn't sign you up for any emailing list; it's simply for helping you get your repair and/or alteration job taken care of. There's a sign-up form for the email list off to the right and one below (or two below, if you're on mobile), if you're interested.
