Offset, Topline & View From Address

This is often overlooked I believe and is likely to be one of the major reasons people shy away from blades at some point. I'm speaking of the standard plumber's neck and how it obscures the heel of the blade, primarily. Flow necks are available but usually are all toe hang, something that some people don't like either.



Anyway, I just got a Byron made with additional offset, a .350" slanted pipeneck, and that neck welded perfectly tangent to the face. Wow, alignment is effortless, and for someone with a SBST stroke, this thing inspires so much confidence. The ability to "see" the whole putter head/face-edge is huge for me and is probably why I putted so well with my Scotty Slant Tei Xperimental. Actually, it was this putter that inspired the Byron that I'm loving today. Here it is from address, not offset severely like some of Edel's new offerings but definitely a lot. I'm seriously considering sending my SS longneck in my avatar back to Byron for a similar welded pipe.

    Beautiful flow neck there. I switched to a flow neck from plumbers this season and while I love the look, but I kind of miss the plumbers as it gives you an extra alignment aid and often frames the ball well
