    Pulled the trigger on another PING dalehead Anser. I'm going to try and add Tungsten weights to one of the two. The first one is the gold colored one that I bead blasted, this one I'm going to leave the patina, which I think is nice... which do you prefer?

    I know that I posted about my MacGregor Bobby Grace M5K auction that I won but I figured it's gorgeous enough for my own photos (as opposed to the seller's):



    I picked up a 6.5K with the grip worn right off of it for $25. A friend tried it and liked a lot...asked me how much. I said if you love it keep it, it's yours. After that he putt lights out and paid for my next 2 rounds + beer lol


    I’ve been on this kick where I’ve been buying a bunch of milled, “designer” flatsticks (TP Mills, Scotty, Grace, Betti, Kirk Currie, etc.). Nothing is high end, although all of it is... Butt not, if that makes sense?

    No lie, the Grace is so stable, it may be my gamer and I loathe the word gamer. It is that fantastic, on the carpet.
    I would suggest adding Tad Moore to your list of milled putters to pick up on the cheap.


    So if just won this TM-4 for $40. I’ll need to clean it up a bit but I think it’ll b a great refinishing candidate.

    Not been feeling the same about my Spider DJ Black since re-buying it so picked up a Vault 2.0 Ketsch for £155 to go alongside my Vault 2.0 Anser



    WOW!! This thing is just as stable when swinging as the Spider but feels so so much better!!....it’s like cheating from inside 3ft!!

    I mentioned this in the Deal or No Deal forum, but I picked up a Wilson Staff Infinite Michigan Avenue for $36 shipped from Budget Golf. It was $29.99 plus a 10% off coupon (code: UPS). I stumbled on their closeout deal pretty randomly: I was looking into experimenting with a cheap toe hang putter after playing with mostly face balanced or just barely toe hang putters for a while. I was looking at some cheap used Odyssey No. 9's on eBay but ended up looking at the Grant Park model of the WS Infinite line, which is a copycat shape and also $29 on Budget Golf. I much prefer the Michigan Ave shape, which is more along the lines of an Odyssey 1W and was pretty pumped to find out that it actually has a lot of toe hang - more than my current Odyssey No. 1 and just a bit less than the Grant Park. Plus they're counterbalanced and come in a 71 deg. lie angle standard. Win win.



    Here's the links to the Infinite putters that are on closeout. Looks like they only have 34 inches, RH left:

    Another classic putter from the 90”s. Cleveland Classic by Kenny Giannini. Carbon, light milling, black ox, and a sound slot. Flared pencil shaft. Don’t think it was played much

    Just picked this up on ebay, I've never owned a Never Compromise putter but I've been on a bit of a kick of collecting "Laguna" or "Ping Zing" type models lately just to mess around with different feels with the same model. If anyone has any other Companies that have made a similar style to these, let me know... i'm always on the lookout for another option for my ever growing putter collection.



    Thanks

    My Wilson Staff Michigan Avenue arrived today. I know, I know, honeymoon phase and all, but getting this thing for $36 is bonkers. ****, I think it'd be a steal for its usual $100.



    My points of comparison are an Odyssey WH Pro, Works Versa Tank 1w, and Cleveland HB 6c. I don't notice any obvious drop off in quality with the Wilson. The whole package looks and feels like a well made, solid piece of equipment. The grip and the headcover look nice and feel quality. The coubterbalancing is pretty subtle and not nearly as severe as the Odyssey Tank.



    Most importantly, it feels great off the face. This is where I was most concerned. There's definitely a bit of feedback on mishits, in a good way, but putts off the center of the club have a satisfying click. Not a cheap ting sound, but a pleasing "tock."



    All and all, I expected this thing to feel cheap, but it absolutely does not. I was a huge fan of the Cleveland for a while, but I think it might be TOO soft. The Wilson might be going in the bag.



    My only real negative is that the many shaft stickers did not peel off nicely. That'll need some Goo Gone. I'm also wary of how well the finish will hold up.

    The Maxfli "tm" series are milled carbon and feel great, though they are light. Personally I like the copper inserted 1st Run series and his newer "pro" series. Another random gem is a line of milled Zevo putters designed by Toulon of recent noteriety. I too have had a soft spot for milled putters over the years.


    So... On your advice, I just picked up a Zevo Milled Toulon blade putter for less than $30 shipped. I'll post some photos when it arrives. Dare I ask, is there anything else that I should be looking at?!? I have a few Mills, Grace, Cameron, Bettinardi, Moore, Toulon.

    Bought a Scotty future 5.5m. I put it straight in the bag and played a scramble. I putted really well with it. I love having a little toe flow.



    I know some don’t like it because it isn’t what JT was actually using. Take it fir what it is and I think you’ll find that it lines up well and has pretty good feel.

    I agree, it lines up great behind the ball. I think that and the 6m were my two favorites of the 2017 futura line up. Would love it if he'd make another all aluminum head in those models. The feel/feedback of the Futura X is bar none compared to the newer models. That being said, the alignment and design of the 5.5m is very well done.

    Tons of beautiful putters. I can’t get over how some makers slap the word “Tour” on a putter and charge and arm and a leg for that meaningless four letter word.



    Who’s to blame? Us, the consumer. We allow them to get away with it by paying the ridiculous price. I include myself because I were one of those who bought into that nonsense at one point. Thankfully, I’m a recovered sucker.

    Chip is one of the best bang for buck guys out there. I love the tri-sole on the BL-2’s. Look forward to seeing this beauty when she has the nice BOS Oil Can finish. Really something to look forward to - congratulations :-)
