  1. So why don't you get your crayons out and write a book that counters what Pelz and Bryson are saying, and show your research.
  2. I believe these heads are 320g empty (no weights).
  3. Can you post some pics? I've gamed one of my T22's a few times and except for some patina on the insert it still looks great. Very light scratches on the sole is all. For what it's worth, I've seen one of the Tour versions in silver and it looks pretty sharp.
  4. Wait a few days before putting the headcover back on. You might think it's dry but that fur in the cover can mess up the paint easily.
  5. Just pray that it isn't very windy (which would be rare there). Could be a long day. I know it is for me but I hit the ball pretty high and don't spend enough time practicing knockdown shots. I'd spend some time practicing low ball shots and getting your distances down. Good luck to you and have fun!
  6. As many others have said, I never use the bag drop and my clubs go from my car, to the cart, and then back to the car after the round before I go in for a beer. If I am playing by myself and I head into the clubhouse for a beer or dog at the turn, I've brought my putter in with me plenty of times. Years ago I had a Circle T headcover stolen off my putter while I was in the clubhouse at the turn at a public course. At least they didn't take the putter (009). I won't let that happen again. Nowadays I play mostly private Clubs, but that isn't 100% safe either. Unfortunately, there are scumbags everywhere.
  7. Be careful on using anything that is too abrasive. Not sure if salt would be or not (I haven't tried it). I've seen some more abrasive polishes create little scratches on the face of a TeI3, although I know the person was being a little too aggressive with the polishing. However, light scratches may not be as noticeable on a T22 because of the face milling. If people are looking for something inexpensive and found in the home, toothpaste usually works pretty well. But there are abrasive toothpastes out there too, so be careful.
  8. The insert won't keep it's shine. That's just the way it is. Let it patina and over time it will look even better. Some of my TeI3's have a great, rainbow looking patina.
  9. I went through 2 sets of CB2's, a set of Pro a12's, and a set of CB3's. The CB2's were my favorites but the CB3's were right up there with them and had a little larger sweetspot. The CB3's had a slightly wider sole and less offset than the CB2's, which I liked. A lot of people don't know how good these irons were. Adams really was putting out some fantastic forged irons back then.
  10. No, sorry. I had a Fleetwood and 2 Nellies (one Nellie w/ wings) but never could putt with them so I sold them awhile back.
  11. I don't have anything for sale at the moment. Pretty set with the collection right now.
  12. I purchased a putter from him shortly before he passed away. We had a lot of good conversations over the years and anytime I had a question on a Mills putter (or if I was looking for a specific one) I would contact him. I spent several months looking for the mate to my DFM-1014 and then I went to Johnny to see if he knew anything about it. I kicked myself for not going to him first because (no surprise) HE was the one who owned it. LOL Johnny's wife saw some of the emails between he and I and she reached out to me after he was gone. She was very nice and I felt terrible for her loss. She ended up sending me a couple of his Mills T-shirts in the mail when I purchased a putter and some of his headcovers from her. I'm pretty sure she made sure most of his collection went to a bunch of the Mills guys over on PutterTalk. Great lady, and I know Johnny made sure she knew what to do with his collection after he was gone.
  13. TP Mills are some of the best putters out there. I've been a fan for a long time. At one time I had over 30 Mills putters. Now I'm down to about a dozen. Here are some of my favorites in my rack, along with a few headcovers. The 2 PROTO's with the snow are handmades by David (DFM-1014). He only made 2 of them in that headshape and when I saw one for sale many years ago I knew I had to have it. I asked Jay Green about it (former longtime sales rep for David) and he gave me the story and spec's on them. I used it as my main gamer for years. Then I went on a mission to find the other one and eventually bought it off a great Mills collector (Johnny) over on the old PutterTalk website. He was terrific guy and had a lot of Mills knowledge. May he RIP.
