BYRON MORGAN REVIEW

Comments

  • tangojaytangojay Members Posts: 924 ✭✭
    I have 14 Byron putters, turn around time range has been between 3 weeks (caught the shipment just right to platting) and 6 months.



    Three all I did was give an idea,,,,, like Scotty1140 said, sorry you had a bad experience,



    To all who are thinking of getting a Byron,,,, Bad experiences with Byron are very rare and if you search this site, you will only find a couple of negative experiences.

    ****, I was starting to consider my first custom Byron. I really want a long neck DH89...but this thread actually gives me a lot of pause.




    I have one spec'd out from 2 months ago, but held on pulling the trigger because of threads like this. I have found more and more online lately. Not attacking Byron as I know myself being a small business owner we tell clients a completion date but as in life sh*t happens and it can cause delays. *though they should of noted the finish will cause delays....!



    I think with such a go economy going right now he is probably overwhelmed...



    I will say the "rep" I spoke with....well he gave the "impression" over the phone to the term "used car salesman"

    With all the other custom putter manufacturers out there, you can find a great putter if you are nervous. I was shocked to read this thread as I wanted a Byron badly. Now I am looking elsewhere.

    How do you know the weight is wrong? Did you weigh the head? Just curious.



    Hey, they did eventually give you a refund. Could have been smoother sure, but in the custom business eventually everyone makes mistakes. I'm just surprised Byron is 7 months out on orders, must be crazy busy. Or maybe just not turning out as many putters.




    I did not measure the head by itself, but I measured the full putter with another 353 putter I have with same shaft and length. Also, they stamped the wrong headweight on the bottom from what I ordered.



    Just giving me the refund and not offering to fix it is what made me angry (from the rep). I had to contact Byron directly for him to even say he'd make me another putter at the same price.



    If I was quoted 7 months in the beginning, and not 2-3, I'd be more okay with it.




    That's fair... I can completely understand your frustrations here. I've have had 5 putters made by Byron, with another on the way. I live close enough to just go to the shop, so I've never dealt with a rep, but have heard mixed reviews.



    "One man shop" type of turn times can be incredibly frustrating. I'm currently waiting on a custom pool cue that has an ETA of October... 2017. I feel your pain.



    Even if the rep didn't have the authority to offer a remake, they probably should've contacted Byron to check on that before refunding your money. You shouldn't have had to contact him yourself.




    Who is making the pool cue that is taking a year? I have a Woody Woodworth that I love. Haven't played in about a year, but that guy was solid when I purchased 5-6 years ago.







    OP,

    Should have ordered a Lajosi.




    I've heard good things about Lajosi, but I'll be sticking with my favorite from now on - Bettinardi. Semi-local and love their designs and service.

    Been following this thread since the beginning and get heartburn bc its the same **** I dealt with when I ordered mine. Wrong mill, shaping, stamping, finish.



    I'm sorry OP. People got feathers ruffled when I said I was displeased with the service I didn't get - only to have it be verified numerous times.



    Stick w bettinardi, or piretti for customs.

    Just placed my order. I had a great experience with the Rep. He was very honest about the lead times for my particular finish and head. I ordered a 612 carbon with the blue oil. If i did standard oil can the turnaround would be weeks longer. The blue oil should be right at the 8-10 week mark if all goes well. Hoping to have it in hand mid September! Looking forward to sharing it will everyone when the time comes.

    My rep is streaky and tough to communicate with. I’ve already decided that if It arrives different from how I ordered, then I’m just going to send it back for a refund. Same goes if the quoted timetable runs more than 2 weeks longer than promised.



    The price is too steep and the market is too competitive to have to deal with all of this nonsense. It’s just a putter after all.

    I ordered a putter from Byron about two months ago. This is my first custom putter (I’ve been gaming the same Nike 006 for 5 years). I ordered a Byron because of the great things I’ve heard about his communication. However, I was not given a quoted time, even though I repeatedly asked for one. I have even followed up with multiple emails to both the rep and Byron himself with no response from either of them. I figured the putter would take around two months (it has a tour satin finish and minimal stamping), but the lack of communication and not getting any responses to my emails has been frustrating.

    Super sorry to hear about this, OP. My experience was nothing short of flawless. I wanted to a Tiger-ized 615 and asked for very complicated and confused stamping. Basically, Byron and I have reverse initials. So, I wanted BYRON inside of MORGAN in the cavity and the MB circled...get it, MB/BM...



    Not gonna lie, I was worried that given how particular my request was that something might be lost in translation. But, he nailed it.



    He called me personally, as well.



    I know this probably doesn't help you feel any better. Super bummed for you.



    I will say that Steve, Byron's rep, said he was EXTREMELY busy. And, given Luke List's near win, that only increased hype, etc. That's no excuse but maybe he's buried?



    Anyway, best of luck getting it resolved!

    In my experience, going direct through Byron is the way to go vs. the reps, but it's no guarantee everything will be perfect. I've had little imperfections with half of the putters I've ordered. The first one I ever ordered was an 006 - when I got it it had a sight dot on the topline instead of a sightline on the flange. I actually liked it better that way in the end and kept it, and prefer that on my putters now. I've had sloppy paintfill on a few, mostly because they were painted right before shipping and the paint bled a little - no big deal. I've had long wait times (6 months or so) and short wait times (a month).



    It's your money and you should be happy with the finished product. It's frustrating when things don't turn out the way you envisioned, especially when you have to wait so long to get them. I'm a Byron fan, but there are other options if communication and updates are important to you. Hope you get it sorted out.




    In my opinion, these are not "little imperfections". Sight dot vs. sight line is MAJOR to most people. Add sloppy paint fill (which is the easiest part of the process to get right), and it does not add up to the expectations of a $1,000 putter.

    To be fair, the dot vs. line was on my very first custom putter (this was >10 years ago), and I only picked a sight line because it was on every putter I'd had previously - it wasn't a strong preference. After that, I've had a dot on every putter I've ordered, so Byron did me a favor. image/laugh.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':lol:' /> And the putter in question was "only" $400 or so at the time. You have to remember that there weren't a ton of options for custom putter makers with a LH Anser-style in 2007. Not making excuses for the work, but I just wasn't that picky back then and I was happy to have such a well-made putter - and that putter was fantastic and I still regret selling it. And paintfill doesn't really bother me - the couple of times it happened it was an easy clean-up with some acetone. Ymmv.

    I suppose I am one of the lucky ones. Every Byron Morgan putter I have ordered as custom has been made exactly as I wanted .... down to every stamping and how I wanted it. Of course I keep my stamping minimal so maybe that is part of the success rate I have experienced. Here are my Epic Day and B-17 putters. I ordered a DaKine putter as well with the same Byron Morgan script in the front and a couple of Tuna Fish on the back for the tuna milling and nothing on the sole of that one. My DH89 GSS only had the vertical Byron Morgan script on the face. Maybe keeping mine simple with no alignment markings helps but every stamping I had done is exactly what Byron and I had discussed.

    I got lucky too, but I was meticulous with my order, completely hand drawn out, well with several schematics labeled thoroughly to avoid any confusion. I even included a picture of the milling I wanted.



    Here was my template so he couldn't **** it up!!! Hand written instructions and third-party instruction doesn't cut it most times...



    Edit: Feel free, anyone, to use this template if you want, I don't mind at all. I put my name in BOLD at the top where it says "Oil-can DH89"(didn't feel like putting my name out there online), to make sure he knew which order it was.

    I provided similarly detailed instructions on mine.



    I requested a very specific initial stamping (CL with the L below and right of the C so that the vertical line of then L flowed into the end of the bottom curve of the C....that is how I initial things) and a Circle HB stamp on the sole that reads as vertical at the putters natural toe hang position. Byron nailed both of those requests to perfection.

    Ordered 2. Only dealt with Byron via email. Never any issues, both putters arrived before the estimated date.



    Sounds like most of the problems revolve around the reps.

    that's awesome detail. Quick question, but why did you want a Byron to look like a Cameron? Just curious.

    Whether A.Princey's putter looks like whom ever's who cares. This just might be a look he likes. Of course A.Princey could have ordered a custom stamped 009 putter how he wants it in carbon steel and, if able to order it (we all know custom stamped putters is like a Unicorn), he would have paid upwards to $8,000 for it assuming he could get the stampings he wants. Of course this isn't possible because the average Joe cannot get stampings he/she wants because this option is not available from the Studio. Just like a Unicorn .... not attainable. What A.Princey did was get a putter that is so close to a 009 that is as well balanced, as well designed, has as good of feel and will perform just as well for a significantly lower price. Best part is that his putter is completely customized to his specifications to EVERY iota. Instead of spending $5,000 - $8,000 on a putter this was less than $1,000 for a putter the designer had his hands on built to custom specs. I think this was a pretty great deal regardless of what the putter looks like. Just my 2 cents.

    2 questions



    The 2nd putter you show (dark blue??) what finish is that? ....and please tell me what models all of these are......they are extremely beautiful and I think I'm going to buy a Morgan...my fear has subsided....
  • A.PrinceyA.Princey Major Hacker Members Posts: 2,071 ✭✭
    Well, I didn't necessarily want it the same as a Cameron, but if you look at the majority of other designs, Byron or any other make, most copy the SC design cues just as much or more than my simple dot structure(tour dots, vertical face stamping on heel, 009 shape in general). Heck, I've seen some Byrons with the 3 big cherry bombs in the cavity. I'm going for a style similarity, not a copy. It does say Byron & Co after all, not Cam.

    Take a look at the original Daleheads. You'll see "Ping" on one bumper and "Anser" on the other with something in the cavity, so it's not necessarily Cameron's original idea either. A lot of putter makers like to pay homage to the past, but update with their own touch. I know Byron has talked about this in regards to his DH89 design.



    The putter in my avatar was inspired by Jordan Speith's putter because I like him as a player/person, not because it was a Cameron (and I am a Cameron fan). For some, it's worth customizing a Byron in a similar design for $700-ish rather than dropping $3500+ on the Cameron. Everybody's different. If I had $4200 burning a hole in my pocket, I'd buy both!

    I suppose I am one of the lucky ones. Every Byron Morgan putter I have ordered as custom has been made exactly as I wanted .... down to every stamping and how I wanted it. Of course I keep my stamping minimal so maybe that is part of the success rate I have experienced. Here are my Epic Day and B-17 putters. I ordered a DaKine putter as well with the same Byron Morgan script in the front and a couple of Tuna Fish on the back for the tuna milling and nothing on the sole of that one. My DH89 GSS only had the vertical Byron Morgan script on the face. Maybe keeping mine simple with no alignment markings helps but every stamping I had done is exactly what Byron and I had discussed.
    2 questions



    The 2nd putter you show (dark blue??) what finish is that? ....and please tell me what models all of these are......they are extremely beautiful and I think I'm going to buy a Morgan...my fear has subsided....




    Outstanding! You won't regret ordering a Byron Morgan putter. Just make sure to diligently illustrate how you want your putter to come out like A.Princey did. His follow through was outstanding and a rule how all of us should do it. The putter is going to take some time to get made, stamped, painted and delivered. I never ask a delivery date because I am patient and realize Byron is a one man shop (Yes, I have been to his shop). He always has a slew of putters, with spec sheets on each one, in his shop in a queue waiting to be completed. I mean a SLEW of putters. He's incredibly busy so be patient! He puts the same love in every putter he makes. As I stated, I am very clear in what I want and I have a dialog with Byron before a putter is made as to what I want, whether by text or email or both. His email address is on the website. Communication is the key and once we are on the same page then he goes ahead and creates my putter. I can understand frustration when a time frame is agreed on and that date passes. With respects to his putter reps, send an email to Byron himself to start a dialog. It may take a few days for him to respond but he will respond. Again, patience. He doesn't have people working for him in his shop so we can be sure that Byron, himself, will have his talented hands on your putter crafting it to your specs.



    My putters from top to bottom in my first post are as follows:



    Epic Day long pipe neck, copper plated carbon steel.

    B-17 (new Bombora design) long pipe neck, misted copper plated carbon steel.

    DH89 GSS long pipe neck. Finish is "Blue Oil" but it is a bit lighter than what these pictures show. Not sure if the GSS comes out a bit darker.

    DaKine "Pear shaped" with long pipe neck, copper plated carbon steel.



    These four were all custom ordered to my specs and my stamping preferences.



    The added pictures are my other two Byron Morgan putters. These are:



    Designed By Captain Morgan Stainless Steel copper plated

    8812 Stainless Steel (the Tiffany Blue paint has been replaced with translucent red by myself)





    These are my 6. I would NEVER hesitate in ordering another putter from Byron. I love my Epic Day and cannot see this putter being replaced any time soon. To me, it's simply perfect!!!

    Thanks! I have never gamed by Designed by Captain Morgan and it is in my display golf bag (Powerbilt bag for non MacGregor clubs). It has a bit of patina on it but still relatively unoxidized copper plating. Here is a picture of my Epic Day that has developed patina.
