    Is this thing a true milled putter? Or is it cast, like the Method Matter line, but with the polymetal grooves (instead of the insert) and a milled face? Also, is it stainless or carbon steel?



    Did anyone that spoke/chatted with Nike ask these questions??

    I don't know much about anything, but to my eye it looks to be the same shape as the B2 but with a milled face. Notice the bumpers haven't been shaped other than what was cast or milled

    If its coming from the oven I would expect it to be a bit more refined than that...and fully milled...

    Did anyone find if it is made at the Texan Oven or the Chinese Oven?

    Why is everyone so bent out of shape about people reselling these things? I'm going to try and buy as many as it lets me. I have been using the same Ping Scottsdale putter for 8+ years and am excited to finally have a modern day weight with the same head shape. If i'm lucky enough to get one at $450 great!... if not looks like I'll be paying a premium for one.

    Yeah. Based on the looks, I'd guess it's cast with a milled face and polymetal grooves. Effectively a hybrid of the the B2|01 and the Rors006.

    I have been told it is based upon Rory's putter hence the specs - 34", 71* lie and 355 grams - that cannot be customized. The B2 will have custom options for those that want them and is close to the limited 006 but there are some differences (finish, milling etc.).
    Though much is taken much abides;
    We are not now that strength which in old days
    Moved earth and heaven, that which we are, we are;
    One equal temper of heroic hearts,
    Made weak by time and fate, but strong in will
    To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.

    I'd definitely like to know if it's 100% milled or skim milled before placing the order.



    My gut feeling is that it's casted then skim milled. 001 LE that requires no additional hand grounding costs $499. This one ...

    I'll admit I'm only going to try to get one to resell it. I've followed the threads on this for quite a while and it's cool that Nike is finally go doing it. I really don't personally care for a replica of his putter, but if I can spend $500 and maybe make a couple hundred, why not? Guarantee the people who don't get one will pay it so why wouldn't I?

    This is coming from a Guy that has all ping equipment he should be banned from any nike thread!



    In reality I get what your saying. But I dont believe these are going to fetch the prices everyone might think that you will get if you resell it. If the people that reselled the MMproto knew, that the Vapor line was coming im guaranteeing prices would of never almost doubled. They already came out and said the B2 is coming out with a head nearly the same

    "Crafted" is carefully worded. Doesn't sound like its milled to me either.
