    A Tour of the THP Club Lab

    For those that missed our Behind the Scenes video of Range Days with @Canadan and myself, talking about club data, tech and more, we wanted to share a quick tour of the THP Club Lab. Its still a bit of a work in progress as far as design, but most of the machines and benches have been installed and are in use. When the final product is complete, we will do a full video walk through with each machine as well as drawers, signage and a whole lot more.

    For us, this will definitely have some club building, but it is really about analyzation of the technology and clubs that are put out and giving people even more precise info. Going to be fun.

    Ive always been curious about hot melting and how it helps a club. Pretty cool to see you have that at your disposal.
