Headcover Rack coming?
« on: June 03, 2008, 05:43:32 PM »
Jmmy,
Is there a possiblity a TP Mills headcover rack may be in the works?
I know that TP Mills doesn't want to do things that are not consistent
with the brand, but I think with all the HC releases, there is a desire for
a nice way to display them.
Thanks
Craig

We have never really talked about it, but it could be an option.

I think it would be a cool idea.

I think we would only do one if it was something that fits our profile.

We don't want to bring something out that has already been done.

I agree Jay.  I understand that there are some corners of the market that are very available, but been original has been one of the things that draw me to the Mills brand, anything Cameronesque would be uncivilized ;D

But, I take one to display some of my "special" ;) Mills headcovers...

While a headcover rack sounds cool, a putter rack sounds even better to me.  I have been looking for just the right one, if a unique Mills version was offered I would jump all over it.

There is a rack that could come to market, but it needs some tweeking for private settings.

Here is my opinion and if it seems off base it probably is.

When I think of the Mills brand name I think of original.  I think a TPM logoed rack would be following the lead of another person.  While I like the idea I love the marketablilty of originality.

Now a putter rack would be cool, would just have to have an original twist to it.  

Take this as no offense to anyone as I have some sweet Mills items in my possesion.

When I picture the Mills brand and racks, I see people making there own like Andy to display their prized headcovers.  I don't see the Mills brand dipping down to "copy" what someone else who charges an arm and a leg for covers.  Then hits you for a mortgage payment for a rack to display them on.

I see the Mills brand as original.  The first to do someting.  While they may not be the first in some designs I still see them as original.

Take it for what its worth as this may seem like a bunch of crap to most people.

(spoken like a marketing major who hasn't used his degree for anything besides a resume')  LOL!!

Joeypole,
 I appreciate where you are coming from, however I must point out that Mills and Bettinardi are selling headcovers like he who shall not be named.
I dont feel a headcover rack is coping somebody else if it is of high quality and a different material. I think Jay and Jimmy could make an
outsting  TP MILLS rack out of metal with milling marks and T welds and sell it for a fair price.
I have 2 Cameron Headcover racks at our store and would love to have a Mills rack to show off his great work.

PS I am also for a putter rack, woody T shirts and automatic 2 putts  ;D

If its ok with Jay, Ill post a pic of our Mills Putter display tomorrow, no putters though, we are out :(
Today is the day I will do what I was going to do yesterday.

Good point Craig.  I guess I was letting my marketing do the talking for me.  I'm sure they could come up with something that is very sweet like usual.

Didn't mean to come off as "that guy".

Nice headcover rack Andy! I for one would not care if a headcover rack was made or wasn't made, I would be more concerned about satisfying a demand than worrying about people saying your copying another person. If people want one and Pre order and pay in advance, have them made. I really like the sound of a putter rack, that would be something to consider  ;)!

Hmmm.... headcover rack.  Jay and I really haven't thought that was an avenue we wanted to venture down for some obvious reasons.  HOWEVER...a light bulb just turned on in my head and a bad a$$ headcover rack appeared.

Hey Rudy thanks for me being your favorite "that guy" right now.

How's that Fleetwood treating you?

Once I saw Chris post that picture I just had to do it.  Didn't have the software at work to shrink it.  So I remembered last night and did it.  Got several PMs on it of people who liked it.  Chris had a bet as to how fast it would get used, lol.

i have an idea for a putter "Rack".

Instead of making a wall hanging "rack",,, how about TPMills create a STAFF/Cart bag with individual sleeves, and shorter in height, meant only to hold putters. Personally, i think having a TPM Cart bag thats say 2/3 the height, and without all the pockets, in White with yellow all over it would be an amazing way to show off the putters thats truly unique, and not like the other guys?

opinions?

If a headcover or putter rack is made it should be done in black oxide!
