***ATTENTION***IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT***ATTENTION***IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT***ATTENTION

Last year, in an effort to improve the capability of our forums, we switched to new software. We expected tremendous scalability and rapid customization that would significantly improve each Member's experience across multiple devices and integrate flawlessly with social media platforms.

Unfortunately, after a significant capital expense, we have decided that the length of time and the additional cost to reach our goals make this enterprise untenable.

Thus, we have made the difficult decision to transition the forums to our original software platform. We’re excited that, in the nearly two years since we began the process of our most recent switch, our original platform has been upgraded significantly, and we are confident that the reversion will not only provide the stability that we desperately needed prior to our last move but will also return to the Membership the high level of customization that made our online community so great. We have also added technical resources to the GolfWRX staff that will allow us to build custom modules and modifications that we are confident will take the forums to the next level.

We remain the world's largest online golf community, and we still hold true to our core values and mission statement as written in 2005. Bearing both of those elements in mind, being the best and offering our Members a platform that is world-class are both requirements, not options, and it is that spirit that has motivated this decision.

So, please pardon our mess over the next five days or so while we transition the forums.

A few important notes: Current content will be accessible during that time, but the forums will be READ ONLY, and you will not be able to start new threads or reply to posts. Personal Messaging is enabled but PMs sent/received from the time the board was frozen will not carry over. We know this is inconvenient, and we apologize, and we greatly appreciate GolfWRXers bearing with us through the transition.

We are very excited about starting this next chapter for GolfWRX and getting back to the high-quality Member experience we all expect as soon as possible.

Best custom putter for the money ?

Hello,<br />
I'm looking to build custom putter that resembles Molinari's Bettinardi Dass BB-0.<br />
My budget is around $400~$500. <br />
There are many great custom putter builders (Byron, Lajosi, Lamont etc.) but I do not have any experience with them.<br />
Your recommendations will be greatly appreciated.<br />
<br />
Thank You!

    With the Aussie dollar going down the toilet you'll get something great from Lajosi for that price.

    Go lajosi. It's a healthy budget with Kari and you get very good work.

    Love TP Mills. David Mills, while sometimes busy, will make what you want. I have had him make 3 customs over the years.

    I love my Byron. Not sure I would say it is bang for the buck but it's made me not even think of a new putter for years. What I have in my bag is exactly what my mind thought of when I first approached him for a new putter

    Any of the above mentioned are very good. But if you want a putter that would perform the same, why not an Evnroll? Same face milling. I know is not "custom", but....<br />
    <br />
    <br />
    Loving Evnroll made with top shelf materials very good putters.

    Appreciate all your comments and recommendations.<br />
    Lajosi seems like a popular choice... I'll email Lajosi and go from there...

    Lajosi by far for value. He has so many head styles and is willing to modify, and pretty well engrave anything. He’s a CNC wizard and can create your dream putter. Quick to respond to emails too.

    I would look at LaJosi, Byron, Xenon or Mannkraft <br />
    <br />
    All unbelievable quality, just depends on what look/style you like the look of<br />
    <br />
    I have had one from each (apart from Mann) and all of them make a superb putter

    I have putters from all of the custom manufacturers mentioned above. They all make terrific stuff. I had an Evnroll for all of 1 month. Didn't care for the feedback. <br />
    If you're looking at a budget of 400-500.00, then I would look at used. You should also check and see what you could work out with Kari on a new stick.<br />
    Also, check out Black Lab Putters. Chip puts out a terrific product for the money. In fact, when someone mentions best bang for the buck, the first putter that comes to mind is a Black Lab.<br />
    Good luck with whatever you choose. You can't go wrong with any of the custom manufacturers mentioned.<br />

    For $500 you can get a sweet custom made and he can save himself some coin.

    Nobody has a better Anser shape than Byron Morgan. His DH-89 is perfect, and he can pretty much build anything you want. <br />
    <br />
    Second to that would be Lajosi, especially if you want something besides carbon or stainless.

    I think with 500, a very nice custom outaide of damascus can be done.

    Kingston. Can’t believe I’m the first person to suggest it. If I remember correctly they range from $400-600 maxed out (possibly less - sorry it’s been awhile since I spoke with them). I bought mine second hand and I absolutely love it.
