Great eyes on the balance, guys. This one is truly a prototype and with our limited R&D Department, (me and my VW on the way to the practice green, wink.gif ) each putter tells us a huge amount with regards to the effect the hand milling has on each putter. I'll try to get a picture of this one, dry-fit with a shaft and show the toe hang.

Too much weight out on the toe will indeed cause it to lag............not a good thing for some golfer's strokes, I'll agree. When milling this pocket, I knew that the hosel would carry significant weight, to bring it back to the numbers that are the most popular, today, 350 or up. I kept the toe a bit more substantial than I might have, had it been a Centershafted order or such.

These sorts of questions are very valuable, as we try to get a feel for what guys want, what small details are recognized, and just what the general feel is, for our designs, as well as re-designs.

Keep the comments coming and I'll get a final thought from Chris about which way he would like this putter to go, hosel-wise and get 'er welded up.

Thanks for the views and for keeping the ideas flowing.

Thanks for the response, Lamont. I agree with Sactown, I think with that headshape, a heel shaft would be very popular, as would a double bend. Personally, I'd love to see it with a bit of a higher toe and a plumber's neck.

You guys will probably be seeing a high-toe model from me, in the near future, but not necessarily on the Pamlico.

Keep your eyes peeled and I'll show it off here, as soon as it is done. Got some time blocked out at my CNC guy's shop for myself to get on his Bridgeport manual mill. It is great to have access to a mill a little larger than the one in the SSB Garage, from time to time. My CNC guy, http://www.karaskustomsonline.com/ is a good guy and I am very lucky to have him doing my work.

Keep yer eyes peeled, that's all I can say.

Thanks again,

Sounds great, I'll definitely be waiting. I love high toe putters.

 

You CNC guy's shop looks cool, too. I dig that Model A, really mean looking.

LOve the model A on the machine site.

 

If you ever need people to demo your new stuff, I am sure that Matt and I can find the time. :D

True enough. Though with a SSB putter heading to the big tour, I don't think they need clowns like us.

I am sure that they need the input of the mid and high capper demographic. :)

We're not high handicappers, we're "aspirational" golfers. You're right, though, everyone needs feedback from varying levels of players.

 

Need to put that on my status - "aspirational golfer". I like it.

Thanks, I think I stole it from Titleist. They use the term to refer to players who are good and want to be really good, but I think it applies equally well to chops who want to be decent.
