putter I saw in Reid's Sony Tuesday pics part I
Hope copying the image over here isn't a problem but I was wondering about this putter. Name/style, weight, material, how to get one (except - be good enough to turn pro), probable cost.....anything you know about it.



Thanks.

    In person!



    That's a sharp custom there...I recognize that style of B but I am too lazy to go look it up on the site. The plumbers neck must be an option....I've never seen that style with that hosel.

    cool.

    That is the Brad Elder Model or "BEM". Jimmy has one for sale on his site right now with a long neck. I have seen them with both flow neck and plumbers neck. The head weight usually varies. These are made specifically for tour players, so they are typically made in varying head weights so that tour guys can find the right feel for them. The one on Jimmy's site right now is a soft carbon and is $650. I think in DASS it would run $850. Not sure if Jimmy is a sponsor here or not anymore, so I'll PM you his info.

    Brad Elder model (BEM). Limited numbers...tour prototype model like the Bettinardi JAM. Just guessing, but you'll probably see a variety of them with different characteristics (neck, paint, Carbon vs. Dass, Site line vs. Site dot, finish, sound slot, weight, etc..). Carbon models will probably run for $650-$750. DASS models will be $800+



    There is one for sale on the Bettinardi LTD site with a long neck.
