custom made heads

If I were to buy some iron heads, for example the MA0254, and I wanted it with a lie angle that was 3 degrees flat from standard, would you have them in stock or would they have to be special made?

changing lie angle

How much can the lie angle of a club be changed?  Do you need to heat the head before it can be bent?  I have some old Olimars that are 3 degrees flat and I like the way they sit at address.

grips for bubble shafts

A couple years ago I asked if you had a grip that would fit a bubble shaft. You said that Taki Mac had a grip that would work.  Do you still have those grips?
