    This doesn't look to have the varying loft on the face like their regular putters. But it does say DLT - Descending Loft Technology

    Look closely at the first photo and you can see the different face sections. I believe all their putters have the DLT face. What a week for DAP and BD with this putter. Sik social media accounts have nice pics

    It's kinda cool.....in a modified Anser sort of way. At least he's sticking with the i5's......

    Not sure, but I would guess around 5-6 years. Kenny Knox started it but I know he is no longer with them and has his own line.

    Plumber's neck is a bit odd in how its "attached".


    This is their fitting connection so you can try different neck styles. Weird that he is using one that isn't milled to this style but he must have liked it

    We epoxy them all in this fashion, for DA's we used a black epoxy and you can definitely notice it from some of these angles. It is only noticeable because of the amount of loft we had to put on his putter as a result of the modified armlock.



    The idea of the modular hosel is to get the offset/ toe hang desired for every head style we offer. We could tig weld them but we tested and there wasn't a quantifiable difference.



    Company Note: we don't push armlock, it just happens that these two roll that way. We have Willy Wilcox using it on Tour traditionally.

    Well that’s neat! I played a SIK for a little while when we carried them at my old job. Loved it but I needed less toe hang. Our rep at the time mentioned that you guys were working on this style connection for fitting so I assumed thats what it was. Do you guys have any long necks now?!

    We're prototyping a few right now. We will have that neck available for 2018 for sure, possibly sooner.

    2 pga tour winners using these putters and you still can't buy one. Maybe they should change suppliers. Epic fail by sik.

    Agreed. Can't be that popular.

    Kenny Knox did not start it, Stephen Harrison is the president and founder. KK is a charlatan and an embarrassing reminder of how far we have come.
