Back on June 21, 2007 I wrote a review on these really cool golf scuptures by Flog Dog. They’re golf statues made entirely from Union Pacific Railroad spikes.
In my rave review my only critique was the stand:
“My 2nd critique is on the black polished base my Jones came with. Thereâ€™s a big screw that comes out of the foot of the statue and goes into the base. But thereâ€™s nothing to tighten down or bolt down the statue. You can pick up the statue and possibly have the base fall right off or even worse if you grabbed it by the base the statue might fall out. The fall wouldnâ€™t damage the statue since itâ€™s made of pure steel, but it may damage your floor or break your toes! It would be nice of they added a bolt to the bottom of the base or something to make it a solid attachment.”
New and improved Flog Dog
Apparently the folks at Flog Dog took my critique to heart. I received an upgraded stand in the mail a few weeks ago, out of the blue. The stand (see pic) was exactly as I’d described. Great job! Now my Flog Dog golf statue is securely mounted to the base!
I’m glad to see that one of my articles was able to hopefully not only help generate some interest in a company, but that it was able to help that company improve one of their products.
