  1. The soggy , dormant Bermuda, bare mud conditions at the home course, give me an excuse to put this back up bag in play...I call them my "Mudders".....JDM R7 Forged irons, traditional lofts, 28° 5iron thru 48°pw ....with TM R-Series EF 52° ATV Grind and 58° / 13° bounce Tour Grind wedges..... .
  2. I'm not aware of anyone offering the the Odyssey double bend ( made for the 71° bore angle ) as a stock model in a black finish. KBS CT Tour in that configuration is a "special order" , that they can make, but requires a call to their customer service department. Another option is the black heat shrink tube. Goggle < $3.96 black putter shaft > for a long thread on this site. Lots of info on the DIY how to do it ......
  3. Until I can talk the girlfriend into posing with the 2016 SC My Girl 'Fancy & Forever' limited edition I gave to her (she's a goddess) . All I've got is mortal stuff ..............
  4. Hard to follow billiscupidez and his seemingly endless collection of very nice and sexy putters..... Here is one of mine... Piretti Potenza II ....1 of 1 High Toe , 350g , GSS , hand stamp , with a little extra bling on the handle.... Snakeskin and Ostrich Gripmaster ...
  5. I am a long time blade , 4:00 toe hang user....not a fan of double bend shafts , flange sight lines , full size mallet heads or face inserts , all common features of most face balanced putters....recently aquired this Piretti Cottonwood II with a long slant neck....not something you are going to find OTR.....but I am really, really liking this face balanced model , and may consider adding more long necks to my collection in the future.....
  6. Austad's "World's Premier Golf Catalog" ...April 2000..
  7. Just use a .355" taper tip iron shaft...I prefer KBS C-Taper 120... Fill it with granulated sugar , seal the butt end wit 5/8" backing rod.... last time I did this , I think it took 85 grams of sugar...and moved the balance point 3 or 4 points higher , counter balancing the shaft....
  8. My 1st post was an intentional play on some of the "legends" threads that have popped up before on this site..... Actually I think it is during Cameron's short stint with Dunlop, that Tad Moore taught Donald the merits of milled putters....
  9. Donald Cameron learned the art of milling putters from Byron Morgan.. Edit: Bettinardi did the mill work for Cameron from '93 to '98...In '99 he began making putters using his own name...Year 2000 was the 1st year of a full line of models offered to the public...
  10. Ernie Vaderson Snake Eye wedges had a large presence on the PGA and Champions tours in the mid '90s I read somewhere he was doing "Hand Mades" for the pros back in the 80's . I picked up a set 10 / 11 / 12 of Snake Eye EV wedges in the mid 90's (Pre GolfSmith). I like the narrow soles ...let"s one be creative with shot making ....all I had for pictures right now is the #12 ( the 10 and 11 heads are buried somewhere in my basement )..... Some how?? All my pictures are upside down....
  11. A "very muted thud" perfect description of the Lynx . The Yonex being much lighter, had a muted with a hint of ' crispness ' feel....
  12. Feel ???....I would compare it to a dead blow hammer....My brother and I both played graphite headed drivers . His Yonex ADX was much lighter than my Lynx...In it's time some one did a driver test and the Yonex won the distance category..beating all the stainless and Persimmon... I liked mine because of the deep face, larger head size , instilled confidence in my swing for the fences mentality......( Actually the guy I bought mine from told me some one had won a Long Drive event with this very club)...
  13. A little bit of history..... Macgregor was 'doweling' their irons back in the 1920's....when the first steel shafts were introduced......
  14. I transitioned from Persimmon Powerbilt Citation woods to this combo of TM TP 13° Tour Spoon with an Aldila HM-30 graphite shaft and 8° Lynx V-Tech Driver , high modules graphite head with the stock Powertune graphite shaft. It was not until the the first Taylormade Titanium Bubbles that I made the switch to all metal woods.
  15. Nice.... both sand wedges were made in the same years ...the difference being ,the FG 51 being the " kit SW " and the Joe Phillips being a " specialty SW "...
