  1. I think you’re spot on that. I think it would be better for him and the customers if they had custom ish models that were already made and ready to ship. Still very nice putters and great craftsmanship but wouldn’t have to deal with the hassle of emails and making sure the orders are right.
  2. I figured in the end with all the hassle I went through that the final product would make it all worth it, but I was wrong. Like others have said sometimes with any putter make the communication isn’t always perfect (which is understandable) the final product is worth it. Couldn’t be any more false with my situation. I went back through my emails today and my final sketch and there was 4 big details that were wrong. I even saw an email that he noted I wanted a black shaft instead of chrome and it still showed up with chrome. Like I stated in the original post I don’t like to call people out bu
  3. Wanted it to be a long neck and face balanced, that’s all.
  4. Also, what you said about goodwood. He seems like a good dude and I will keep him in mind for my next project. But his comment about the stress of custom orders shows you it’s not easy. He can manage it though because he doesn’t take in more than he can handle. He keeps it under 100 orders and under 3 month wait. That’s perfectly acceptable to me. 500-600 putters and 6-8 months is mind boggling and have no idea why you would even do that to yourself.
  5. I’m not going to speak on other small putter makers. But to me on the Olson situation, it’s simply the greed for money. He takes all the money up front for 500 putters up front which is a bad way to do it in my opinion. There’s no way one man can handle the details needed for 500 putters at a time. I can understand a deposit but the full amount is not the way you should treat customers of a small business. Especially when you have to wait 6 months. Then you end up with a messed up product. I’m not very good at math but I know with the prices he charges and 500 putters in que, he’s doing very w
  6. Haha I will comment for sure when he has a new post. It’s just sad this is what it’s come to. I wouldn’t mind if I could get some help though from you! I appreciate it!
  7. I’ve seen that. That’s why you don’t see any negative comments. I don’t want to do that yet because I’m sure he’ll just block me if I spam bad comments.
  8. Definitely not the case. I tried to confirm many times with him to make sure this didn’t happen. Already tried with the credit card but it’s been too long. I was pretty specific with the details and he pretty much went cold turkey once he got my money. He’s a nice guy but can’t handle that many orders at one time.
  9. Sadly a basic long neck blade that I’ve been using while I was waiting. Don’t want to change it up now. Looking to pass it along to someone else!
  10. Figured I would go all out and get all the details I wanted for once. Most important was a long neck blade with more stability. That’s not very easy to find so I figured I would go custom. Just sadly picked the wrong maker. It’s a beautiful putter and someone will be very pleased. Just not what I asked for is all. The finish is unreal though and very happy the way it turned out. I hope you get what you wanted but even better! Let me know how it turns out please. I’ve always been interested in those putters!
  11. I wish you all the best and hope it shows up as requested. Nothing better than asking for something custom and getting what you want when you finally open up the package. I’m just trying to warn anyone before they make the same mistake I did. I really don’t like to start drama on here or anywhere but this is just unacceptable. I wouldn’t want anyone else to go through what I did.
  12. Funny part is he charged me more for the twisted neck that I didn’t even get hahaha.
  13. I agree with. The only problem is no matter how many pictures you see of the putter, to me it’s never exactly what you imagined it. That’s why if it’s an expensive purchase I will probably only do it in person from now on. If it’s not a crazy amount, then I’d be fine still buying with just seeing pictures but for what Olson charges you should het exactly what you requested. Especially the neck, that’s the most important part in my opinion.
  14. That’s good to hear. Once I get this sold or sorted out I’ll see what he can do.
  15. My fault I thought that was you! My mistake but I’ll probably reach out and see what he can do.
  16. I saw 6-8 weeks on the putters I think on the website. I wouldn’t be worried with them though. You get the fitting in person and I don’t live too far away.
  17. My worry though is I’ll never get the money back and then he has my putter. I would rather lose some money than all my money. That’s my thought process. Maybe I’m wrong.
  18. If you can make me a fully face balanced blade, I would be interested.
  19. I picked up a Nike proto long neck on here that is almost completely face balanced. I love it. I didn’t expect to like it that much but it’s so much better than expected. Crazy part is it’s the cheapest putter I’ve had in a while.. by far lol. I want to get a fitting at artisan though. That’s the only way I’ll do a custom putter now is if I can see it in person. I once had one done with mankrafted when I was in Phoenix and got to see the whole build first hand. That’s the only way to go.
  20. Not much of a chance. He doesn’t reply to any of your emails. I message him on Instagram and he tells me the best way to reach him is through email lol. The problem is he never responds. I paid with a credit card and it’s way past 60 days so that’s not an option. My only way is to just cut my loses. I’ve already asked many times for a refund with no response. I have all the proof it wasn’t created as requested but not much I can do now. Overall, the resale isn’t bad for his. Not as great as Scotty but I’ve seen many sold on here and eBay with close of what the original price wise. It’s a great
  21. Exactly. Not sure why I went through 50 emails back and forth confirming all the details because he forgets, then he does half of what I asked. I was planning on buying a second one from him but that’ll never happen now. He told me he takes in about 500-600 custom orders at a time before he cuts it off. How can one person take in that many orders and do them correctly? Obviously that answers your question. He constantly forgot all the details even though they were in the email thread. Terrible way to do business.
  22. Noticed a few pictures came out a touch blurry. Let me know if you need any others!
  23. Just one great item today. Waited 6 months for this putter but found something I like in the meantime. Not exactly what I asked did either so I’m passing this along at a great discount and no wait time. Let me know if you have any questions. I think I got all the specs labeled below. Logan Olson putter -35 1/8 inches -3* loft -70* lie -Torched finish which is a stunner in person -About 30* toe hang tried to capture in pic -smooth face and milled heel of face -Wide body version for more stability -Silver shaft -Tiffany Olson grip -
  24. It’ll be on the bst in a few mins. It’s a really impressive looking putter don’t get me wrong but it’s not what I asked for. I also found a putter I really like in the meantime so no reason for me to keep it.
