My Byron J-Blade

Like it Steve.

Totally different look, but very cool.

Was worried about the snow, but it is all but gone at address.

With patina it will be a beauty

Adding the new Byron and Handmade stamping just ices the cake.

The man can't make a bad or ugly putter anyway. :)

Not a big fan of the snow, as sactown is, but the look is very nice. Clean, glowing lines, great color. It could be the lighting, but the color isn't as bright as a lot of the copper putters that have been posted.

Snow was not to my liking, but I didn't really mind it because at address you don't see it.

I prefer the original finish as well.

 

I guess I don't understand you guys with all these shiny copper penny putters. They look fantastic new but they are bound to oxidize unevenly after you start to game them. Are these all display-only or are you spraying something on them to speed up the process?

This to me was part of the attraction of copper. Copper penny today, but slowly changing over time. Copper prevents the carbon from rusting or needing lots of silicon spray. I like not really knowing what it will look like in a year.

And if that look is not good, I can take a bit of brasso and go back to penny.

 

Steve had a copper byron 008 that the patina was amazing. a bit of patience to see the finished model is all that's required.

or just go black oxide and be prepared to take care of it.

I guess but I've seen ping putters that go through that process naturally and they look kind of a mess until they reach full patina. That would bug me. But, its a personal thing to be sure. Like you said, you could go black oxide or another finish that is lower maintenance.

Yeah, can we pass a constitutional amendment to outlaw snow on putters? Too many great works of art are being defaced by consumers adding this as an option when they refinish their putters.

 

JUST SAY NO TO SNOW!!!

I think that I will be with you here and there in the process when there is a weird patina patch. I am going to fight the brasso though and let it happen

 

Another option is to have Byron do a pre-patina finish. Adds color from the get go. very cool too

White is very cool, not sure about the red in the cavity though. I like the blue with copper on my 006.

i'm not much of a red guy though.

Snow looks better too with the paint to me.

Now that's interesting. Does anyone have a pic of that on here?
