Paintfilled dots on TeI3 putters!  TorreyRat has teamed up with BOS to develop a process for paintfilling the dots on the back of the classic Scotty Cameron TeI3 putters.  Now we can take personalization to the next level.  Pair this process up with a "one-Off" finish and go crazy !

"One-Off" finishes are here! 
TorreyRat Golf is pleased to begin offering one-of-a kind "One-Off" finishes based on the black oxide, aquamarine, patina oil and chocolate finishes for carbon steel heads.  These finishes are achieved by a one-time process modification that will never be duplicated, so the results are unpredictable and unrepeatable.  Nobody else will ever have a club like yours - guaranteed!  Check out the stunning example below of a putter done for a customer in Japan, in One-Off 2X Patina Oil with deep milled face.  Pictures don't even do it justice!

A tribute to a special friend!  Check out this classic Bullseye flange putter customized for a a great guy in Western New York.  TorreyRat had the pleasure of making D. Devine's acquaintance and thought it would be a cool gift to polish and personalize a classic Bullseye Flange putter, just like the one he had grown up with!  Featuring the new shamrock stamp.  I hope he never uses it and just hangs it on the wall behind his bar!

TorreyRat's Second Putter Cover is here!  TorreyRat Golf has just released its second limited edition putter cover in black pebblegrain faux leather with gold embroidery and dual magnet closure.  Commemorating the influence of the Torrey Pines Dawn Patrol on TorreyRat's beginnings, this stunning headcover is another beautiful way to protect your customized flatstick (see white cover below).


Collegiate logo shafts are now available for woods, wedges and putters!  TorreyRat is pleased to now offer the new line of officially licensed collegiate shafts from Loomis!   No you can show your college pride from top to bottom with a stunning shaft, refinished clubhead, and even find a great grip to match!  Logo shafts are available for nearly 60 major colleges and universities, and new ones are being added every day.  Newly-reintroduced Loomis graphite wood shafts, True Temper taper tip steel wedge shafts, and True Temper parallel tip putter shafts are stock items. TorreyRat can arrange for special orders on taper tip putter shafts as well.   Contact TorreyRat to inquire today - if you don't see your favorite college below it's probably because the picture wasn't big enough!

Custom Stamps are here! 
We now have the following stamps in 1/4" size to further personalize your clubs: 
Smiley Face, Shamrock, Christian Fish, Dollar Sign, Cross (outlined), Awareness Ribbon, Heart, Star, and even the head of the TorreyRat!   Here they are on black oxide background.  Paintfill color is your choice of course (whoever heard of a red shamrock, anyway!).

If you want a custom stamp of your own, TorreyRat can help you design and purchase one;  contact TorreyRat for details!  An example is the stamp on the far right - a stylized representation of the initials KVH.

White AND Black Finish Steel Shafts! 
Now for the first time, TorreyRat can offer steel shafts with either a white or black finish.  The white finish matches our white polymer putter heads people have been going crazy about!  And the black finish has an amazing deep rich black appearance!  You can now have an all-white putter and not only make more putts with the improved alignment but also stop people dead in their tracks when you pull it out of the bag!  Throw a cool white leather or exotic skin grip on it for good measure!  The ULTIMATE GHOST !  Or go for the total blacked out look with a black oxide head, black shaft and black grip.  Or mix it up!  Here's an example of a Scotty Cameron Buttonback Newport with an original Cameron steel shaft, both refinished in white, and a Kombi S head done in white with a black finish double bend shaft.

Heart Stamp has arrived, more character stamps to come! 
TorreyRat has recently acquired a high quality heart stamp that can be used to personalize your clubs.  More character stamps are on the way as well, including shamrock, star, awareness ribbon, outlined cross, dollar sign, Christian fish, smiley face, and ..... the head of the TorreyRat !  If there is a particular character you are looking for, please let TorreyRat know!  Check out the pics of heart-stamped Vokey wedges refinished in 2X black oxide with pink and white paintfill, white finish wedge shafts, and custom ferrules!


A very special customer and friend !
  Congratulations to Samantha M. for winning her first AJGA Title, placing T15 in the 2011 Junior PGA Championship, and qualifying for her first US Womens Amateur, all in the span of a month in the summer of 2011!  And to top it off, Samantha qualified for the U.S. Womens Open in 2012!  Samantha had her Scotty Cameron Studio Style putter customized by TorreyRat in White Polymer finish and UNC Tarheels team colors paintfill with lots of cool stampings.  Sam will be joining the Lady Tarheels golf team in the fall of 2012 on a full-ride scholarship!  TorreyRat had the pleasure of meeting Sam and her wonderful family at the 2011 Women's Amateur at Rhode Island Country Club.  Sam also has a 2X Aquamarine custom-stamped Vokey Spin-Milled 60 degree Wedge with UNC Tarheel logo shaft!  It's so beautiful she may not even want to hit it, but it will make a great dormroom decoration!  Dad and Mom even signed up for a couple of custom Vokey wedges each themselves, and Mom won her club tournament with them first time in the bag!)
