made out of tuscaloosa alabama. use to make putters with multiple OEMs. takes a little while to make the putters but can customise it which ever way you want
I've had 4 or 5 Softails. My fave shape of all time. I've been looking on ebay to see if another in Stainless with flange sight-line appears......... :-)
The quality, craftsmanship and legend behind the brand is unquestionable.
I stupidly sold my first, a couple were for collection purposes only: and the last i had Custom Made. I got David to go a little too heavy on the milling on the custom - making it feel / sound too soft for my liking [NOT his fault at all !!!] and promptly sold that too.
To be fair; whilst admitting the putters are fantastic and loving absolutely everything about them - i found the whole custom process too lengthy and draw-out to contemplate getting another. right now. Which in an ideal World is what i'd have done a while ago. Being in the UK doesn't help that timescale of course....
IF you're thinking of getting a Custom done - now (Winter) is the time !!! And if you have more patience than me - you will NOT regret it i promise.
***Pics of my original i truly regret selling:
Have you tried the old professional series line? Those heads were around 350g, which to me are on the heavier side. What head weight are you looking for?
David's putters are hidden gems, way better than most and most of his work are his designs, not remakes of others.
Someone say SoftTail!
David is his father make a putter. I own Spalding TPM 3 and TPM 4. They are great putters. I enjoyed.
Those are the first ones I saw. Off topic... How is your putter making coming?
I play a TP Mills Anvil and really like it, this putter has excellent soft feel and looks great at address. I like Scotty’s but after playing the Mills I would not go back.
I need to owned something custom from Mills.
I have a Spaulding TPM 1 and have hit a 12 which may have been the softest carbon Putter I have hit aside from a Mizuno Mills I had at one point.
I recently scored an oil can Sycamore halfback with the GSS insert for a very, very reasonable price. It’s the first Mills I’ve owned and by far my favorite putter. It really is a work of art and I don’t see myself gaming any of my other putters now.
Not to thread hack looking into try one myself any recommendations for a first one
depends on your stroke and preference of necks. Flow neck, plumber neck?
Prefer plumbers but 1 or 2 of each wouldn’t mind
Probably my order without knowing anything about what you like:
Nelly (first gen)
Feel wise , I prefer the feel of the Heritage and SoftTail best, very soft and solid. Nellie and Fleetwood feel good but more of a muted feel because of thinner face.
I don't disagree with this.
I think these 4 hit the sweet spot of feeling like distinctly mills designs (unlike maybe a trad, trad II, sycamore, ming, etc.) while still being a modern putter (unlike maybe a #1 or a #12). If you were looking for a first one to experience the mills brand that's where I would start. That being said, all the putters I mentioned are really nice and non of them are a "carbon copy" of another manufacturer.
I also think the Huey looks really nice in pictures but I've never had one in hand.
Mills is one of the only putter guys in the business that will do a "hand bent plumber neck." and all of their other round flow necks are great looking too. Interesting the name came from calling it a 'Plumber's nightmare" with the 1/4" off set and narrowing yet it is common to call it Plumber's Neck. Tho think Karsten Solheim coined that term.
I can't believe YOU haven't got a custom Mills yet! Come on mate, get with the program! 🤣
Apologies if it’s mentioned earlier but can anyone let me know the lefty options? Interested in a Fleetwood or possibly Nellie at some point.
