Golfball Tops Now Being Made to Order!


#1

We found a local supplier of treads. Now we can make to order. Just pick a colour (colour guide at the bottom of this post), and we’ll work on it from there. PM for an order!

Me and Swizzbeats decided to team together in order to start a little project. We’ve always wanted that dimpled feeling in our balltops, so we decided to experiment with making balltops out of golfballs! It’s been a success so far. Our testers love it, I love it, and Swizz loves it!

Base Price:
$10 + shipping (should be 2-3 bucks)

We can paint with many different textures, from smooth, to rough, and different finishes from matte to gloss.
We can also do mono-coloured stencils for an additional price (depending on complexity of stencil).

Without further ado, here are our prototypes.

----Some paints will not coat over the text. We’ll let you know if the colour you want is using this kind of paint (we only have 2 cans that do this).

Gold and Silver Chrome = My favourite

Treads implanted. Next time we’ll put the tread in AFTER we paint to avoid a “rough” paint job near the bottom. Still looks fine though.

The exact dimensions are 42mm compared to a 35mm standard Sanwa balltop. There is little to no transitional curve when putting the ball top on. There is no added weight, meaning no extra springs are needed! I’ve given a few prototypes to local players and they don’t have an issue with the size at all.

We are only limited to the colours we have atm. We will get loads more colours if this thing blooms. So please take some time and vote which colour you would like to see on your golfball top!

Metallic Crimson
Metallic Cobalt
Matallic Gold
Chrome (doesn’t come out right. We’ll see what we can do)
Black
Textured Forest Green
Blue
Red
Yellow
Maroon
Smoke Grey
Flat Gold

There are also nice transclucent (only on top layer) golf balls that we can buy if requested… It looks good enough to put on yourstick without paint. If you have any golfball that you want plain, you can let us know as well.

We will also be seeing Justin Wong, Arturo Sanchez and Team Sp00ky at T11, so we might be able to get them to sign some golfballs. We will clear coat them after to make these treasured signatures permanent

^what he said.


#3

lay one on a table next to a standard size balltop


#4

God damnit, just put camera in car. I’ll take more pics tomorrow. The golfballs are 42mm compared to 35mm sanwas OR 45mm sanwas. They have a good feeling, though we can probably go smaller if we can find the right balls.


#5

interesting


#6

What does the bottom of them look like? Where the threads are.


#7

I’ll take more pics tomorrow. Looks like how a sanwa should be where the treads are.


#8

lol needz more adaptors.


#9

I’m a golf fan. I’d definitely buy one or more of these. i like black and white


#10

I’m pretty sure i’ve read a few people here doing this before, doesn’t the added weight effect how fast the joystick returns to center position? I’m interested all the same, would love a Tekkaman sillhouette for my Wii stick top.


#11

The weight difference is negligable. No spring needed.


#12

More pics!!!


#13

New pictures of size comparisons and colours/materials are up!


#14

Looks good. but it feels SUPER good if u play a non charge charecter. Like ryu for example feels really good on it.


#15

Looks very cool, add some astro turf you have a pretty dope stick.
