I've looked at this post 3 times, i understand your frustration, but you can't blame the mfg. Look at it this way I own a BMW M4 my tires went at 12,000 miles $3,000 to replace them. Should i call BMW dealer or bridgestone? The dealer doesn't make tires they sell cars. I know they should be for good for 8-12,000.Bottom line are you making putts? who gives a s*** how it looks (that's cosmetic) if you are killing your playing partners who cares. I'm pretty sure you spun few putters in the past 2/3 years:) not being critical just saying.
